Abstract

A 69-year-old man underwent transradial catheterization (TRC) with successful percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), but developed a radial artery perforation. Guiding catheter re-positioning and prolonged balloon inflation were unable to provide hemostasis. Successful reconstruction of the perforated vessel required the unconventional and novel use of a coronary polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent graft.
