The "RAP and BEAT” International Trial: evaluating a novel 6 Fr sheath for transradial coronary interventions
Transradial coronary interventions (TRI) have been shown to have a wide-range of positive clinical and economic results, but radial artery occlusions (RAO) using this approach can be as high as 30%. What can we do to reduce RAO and increase TRI?
Join S. Saito as he introduces the results of this trial comparing a new, thin-walled 6 Fr sheath, the GlideSheath Slender, which has a smaller outer diameter than conventional 6 Fr sheaths, to older models. Will it make a difference in reducing the RAO rate? Learn more here…
