Transradial vascular access for invasive procedures is gaining increasingly acceptance due to reduced access-site complications and improved patient's comfort compared with transfemoral. However, the adoption of transradial access in peripheral vascular procedures is actually limited by anatomical and technical considerations. Yet, among all the peripheral vascular districts, the renal one seems to be particularly suitable for transradial approach. In this article, we discuss the rationale for preferring the radial approach instead of femoral and review the specific technical issues related to transradial renal artery stenting (RAS).

Abstract

Transradial vascular access for invasive procedures is gaining increasingly acceptance due to reduced access-site complications and improved patient's comfort compared with transfemoral. However, the adoption of transradial access in peripheral vascular procedures is actually limited by anatomical and technical considerations. Yet, among all the peripheral vascular districts, the renal one seems to be particularly suitable for transradial approach. In this article, we discuss the rationale for preferring the radial approach instead of femoral and review the specific technical issues related to transradial renal artery stenting (RAS).
