Angioplasty is being used in more and more situations once reserved for open surgery.
The well-known complications of the transfemoral approach (through the groin) remain a significant concern.
The transradial approach (through the wrist) eliminates major vascular complications and the need for blood transfusions.
Transradial intervention is "the approach of choice" because today doctors and hospitals expect high success rates, low costs, and easy post-procedure care. And today patients expect procedures to be safe, simple, and comfortable ÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ and they love the "walk in-walk out" benefits of TRI.
