• The ECRB has additional origins from the radial collateral ligament, the ECU from the dorsal border of the ulna (shared with the flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor digitorum profundus), and all four also originate from various fascia. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has evolved into being a significant coronary artery bypass conduit and ranks third in usage after the internal thoracic artery (ITA) and saphenous vein grafts (SVG). (springer.com)
  • Its use and excellent patencies result in survival results equivalent to bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) grafting and always superior to left internal thoracic artery (LITA) +SVG. (springer.com)
  • Although the RA has equivalent patencies to the right internal thoracic artery (RITA), it is much more versatile. (springer.com)
  • Contrast injection was performed through the sheath and demonstrated a small radial artery with another larger anomalous vessel originating at the elbow level and migrating laterally ( Figure 1 ). (onlinejacc.org)
  • The multiple logistic regression analysis using radial artery diameter, RIC, β-blocker, and trimetazidine treatments revealed that small radial artery diameter, lack of β-blockers, and RIC were independent predictors of RAO. (springermedizin.de)
  • Radial artery embolization is a very rare complication of transradial intervention, not previously documented in the literature, fortuitously with a good ending on this occasion. (onlinejacc.org)
  • A total of 640 consecutive patients who prospectively underwent transradial artery coronary angiography (TRACA) (322 patients received RIC before TRACA) were enrolled. (springermedizin.de)
  • The radial artery has proved to be an excellent arterial conduit, is equivalent to but more versatile than the RITA, and is always superior to SVG. (springer.com)

  • 2 , 3 Functionally, the contributions of the median and radial nerves to the sympathetic innervation of the radial artery have been inferred by the demonstration in patients of increases in radial artery blood flow after blocking the median or radial nerves, with no effect following block of the musculocutaneous nerve. (springer.com)
  • 4 In another study on human patients, an increase in hand temperature was observed following block of the ulnar or median nerves but no effect was observed after block of the radial or musculocutaneous nerves. (springer.com)
  • Lange KH, Jansen T, Asghar S, Kristensen P, Skjonnemand M, Norgaard P . Skin temperature measured by infrared thermography after specific ultrasound-guided blocking of the musculocutaneous, radial, ulnar, and median nerves in the upper extremity. (springer.com)
  • A 77-year-old woman with effort angina returned for intervention to her proximal circumflex and second obtuse marginal (OM2) artery. (onlinejacc.org)
  • The radial approach for a coronary angiography has became popular in several centers because of its simplicity and fewer complications. (bioportfolio.com)
  • These are especially important for the radialists in the catheterization laboratory for troubleshooting, especially with the growing popularity of the radial artery as the preferred access site for diagnostic and interventional coronary angiographic procedures. (onlinejacc.org)
  • We report a cost-benefit analysis of radial catheterization based on results from a systematic review of published randomized controlled trials. (nih.gov)
  • Radial catheterization was favored over femoral catheterization under all conditions tested. (nih.gov)

  • Relationship of procedure time difference between radial and femoral catheterization and cost savings with radial catheterization. (nih.gov)
  • If radial and femoral procedures take the same time, the model concludes that radial catheterization will be $297 less costly. (nih.gov)
  • The cost advantage of radial catheterization disappears only if it takes approximately 20 minutes longer than femoral catheterization. (nih.gov)
  • All radial artery grafts that were patent early after the operation remained patent at midterm follow-up, and early parietal irregularities in 7 patients were seen to have disappeared after 5 years. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Patients undergoing percutaneous coronary procedures frequently require repeat procedures as a result of staging, restenosis, and progression of coronary artery disease. (onlinejacc.org)
  • A sizeable fraction of these patients develop permanent obliteration of the radial artery lumen. (onlinejacc.org)
  • this approach offers several advantages, including the accessibility of the artery in most patients, the easy control of bleeding even in anticoagulated patients, the enhancement of comfort because patients are capable of sitting up and walking immediately following the procedure, and the near absence of clinically significant sequelae in patients with a normal Allen test.
