Methods and materials

From March 2017 to September 2017, at the Department of Radiology “ARNAS" Garibaldi Hospital in Catania, TRA was performed in 11 patients (8 female, 3 male; aged from 41 to 84 years). Procedures include 4 abdominal bleedings, one pelvic bleeding and 6 uterine artery embolisations (UAE) for fibroid treatment. AE were performed in emergency, UAE in programmed activity. To evaluate the feasibility of TRA, a Barbeau test (8, figure 1) and radial artery sonography were performed before the procedure. In one case the presence of a type D waveform at Barbeau test contraindicated the traditional TRA. In this patient a “distale transradial access” (TDA) through the deep palmar arch was choosen, because it allows a sufficient hand’s perfusion even in case of occlusion (7).
