Title Radial Access in STEMI Patients-Is it taking too long? A comparison of Radial against Femoral access for Door to Lidocaine, Lidocaine to Sheath, and Sheath to Vascularization times in STEMI Patients
Creator Kristen Cornachione, MS; Theophilus Owan, MD
Description Use of radial access in cardiac catheterization procedures has been shown to have positive impact on reducing bleeding risk, but also lengthened procedure times. We compared two years of STEMI patient data to see if using radial as our default access has had any effect on our procedure times. Contrary to current literature, we found that our procedure times were similar between femoral and radial access.
