Abstract

Radial artery access for performance of coronary and peripheral diagnostic as well as interventional procedures is on the rise. With increasing adoption comes the expected increase in procedural complications. We describe a novel, simple, and effective non-pharmacologic solution for sheath entrapment related to pharmaco-resistant radial artery spasm.
