Wrist Access Safer, Easier for Many Patients Undergoing Minimally Invasive Treatment of Blocked Heart Arteries

amp; Vascular Institute, and ISET course director. "The radial approach is a bit more technically challenging for physicians, but once they master it, I think most would prefer it. One of the main barriers is a lack of training opportunities."

When the femoral access approach is used, there is a 2.8 percent risk of bleeding or nerve damage, according to studies. Most patients spend at least one night in the hospital after the procedure. Although rare, the bleeding can lead to kidney failure, blood infection and death. At Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute, the complication rates for the radial approach are extremely low; only 0.3 percent had bleeding complications. None suffered nerve damage. An overnight stay may be advisable, depending on the complexity of the intervention performed, not because of the access approach.

The radial approach isn't appropriate for all patients, including those who have very small or twisted arteries or are extremely thin, said Dr. Quesada.

"Using the radial approach results in lower cost, less time before the patient can get up and walk around and fewer complications," said Dr. Quesada. "Patients who are ideal candidates for the radial approach are those who are obese or have severe peripheral arterial disease (PAD)."

Considered to be the premier meeting on endovascular therapy, the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) is attended by more than 1,200 physicians, scientists, allied professionals and industry professionals from around the world. The meeting pioneered the use of live cases to promote the multidisciplinary treatment of cardiac and vascular disease by endovascular means. ISET is presented by the Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute, Miami. ISET 2009 is taking place Jan. 18-22 near Miami Beach, Fla. For more information, visit www.ISET.org.
