Angioplastia coronaria e implante de Stent a través de la arteria radial.: Caso clínico
Coronary angiography and percutaneous treatment of stenotic lesions have expanded in the last few years, due to availability of better diagnostic equipment. The femoral technique applied to this aims has prevailed, considering its efficacy, safety and wide acceptance. Since the beginning of this decade, an alternative access has been developed, in relation to miniaturization of the required elements to perform coronary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. This new radial artery access is supported by multiple reports from many centers around the world that are increasingly using the technique. With this access it is possible to perform all the regular procedures done regularly through the femoral route. This case report illustrates a coronary angiography study through the radial access, followed by a stent implantation, through the same route.
