The transradial approach (TRA) is emerging as a promising strategy to improve the safety of percutaneous coronary diagnostic or interventional procedures. Nevertheless, a series of specific complications related to the radial access have been described so that their prevention and optimal management is clinically relevant. In this article, the types of access-related vascular complications potentially occurring after TRA and their possible management are described. In particular, the vascular complications have been classified in three groups according to the main pathogenetic mechanism: thrombotic, hemorrhagic and nonthrombotic nonhemorrhagic. Moreover, a practical operative protocol for prompt diagnosis and treatment has been proposed.
