Abstract
A coronary angiogram (CATH) is the diagnostic tool used to visualize the coronary arteries of a person’s heart. These arteries can be accessed through the radial artery. Various methods of applying compression to the radial puncture site have been used, but no research has been done to show what best practice is. The purpose of this pilot study was to compare two devices and three methods for achieving hemostasis after a transradial angiogram while assessing vascular complications and time endpoints. A mechanical device (Terumo TR wristband) and a hydrophilic wound dressing (Clo-Sur P.A.D.) were used. The Terumo band was studied twice, using the current method and a fast-release method. Taking into account the small sample size of this pilot study, statistically significant differences are seen in time to discharge in the fast-release Terumo and Clo-Sur P.A.D. groups, as compared with the control Terumo group, without increasing vascular complications.
