Six consecutive patients (3 men; mean age, 63 ± 14 years; age range, 38-81 years) with infrarenal abdominal aortic stenosis underwent unilateral or bilateral transradial approach for stenting of the aortic lesion. In 4 cases, isolated aortic stenting was performed through single transradial approach (in 2 cases with precise alignment to the proximal end of previously deployed iliac stents), whereas in the other 2 cases bilateral transradial approach was used for aortic stenting followed by bilateral stenting of the proximal iliac arteries. Either a "bare-on-the-wire" or a "support-catheter" technique was used, according to patient anatomy and technical requirements. The median follow-up was 14.3 months, at which time all patients had relief of symptoms without thromboembolic or bleeding complications. In this performance and safety evaluation, full transradial approach was effective and safe for treating infrarenal aortic stenosis that is isolated or associated with iliac disease.
