A case of transradial carotid stenting in a patient with total occlusion of distal abdominal aorta

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2002 Jun;56(2):243-5. doi: 10.1002/ccd.10190.


We report a case with severe carotid stenosis in which carotid stenting was performed via the radial artery due to total occlusion of distal abdominal aorta. The radial approach offers a potential alternative in cases in which the femoral approach is problematic.
