Why Radial to Neurovascular?

Expect an exceptional experience focused on pushing the boundaries of interventional medicine with transradial access for neurovascular procedures. Decades of experience in endo- and cardiovascular angiography and interventional procedures, as well as research in neurovascular patients have demonstrated a reduction in access-site complication rates1,2, earlier ambulation3, reduced hospital costs4 and strong patient preference5.  Several institutions have demonstrated that a radial-first approach is not only safe, but can be learned rather quickly.


Terumo Interventional Systems offers transradial access and closure devices that allow the operators to optimize procedural outcomes while preserving arterial function post-intervention. In addition, Terumo hydrophilic coating helps reduce radial artery spasm, allowing the operator to optimize procedural outcomes and patient satisfaction while preserving arterial function.
