Over the past decade, the use of a transradial approach (TRA) to obtain arterial access for cardiac catheterization procedures has gained popularity and surpassed the use of a femoral artery approach (FA) [1, 2]. The brachial artery, axillary artery, ulnar artery, and femoral artery cut down for access are rarely used.
