Abstract

Percutaneous angioplasty of lower limb disease is commonly performed with a transfemoral access. In the coronary field, a transradial approach has shown to reduce access-site bleeding and adverse clinical events. This route has not yet been well studied for the majority of peripheral interventions, like those involving the iliac arteries. In this study we sought to evaluate the feasibility and safety of this approach for iliac interventions.
