ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction treated by RADIAL or femoral approach - STEMI-RADIAL

Description:

Bleeding complications are a significant source of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization. Two recent trials, RIVAL and RIFLE-STEACS, have compared outcomes between transfemoral and transradial access in patients presenting with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The current trial also sought to compare outcomes between transfemoral and transradial access in STEMI patients presenting to high-volume radial centers (where >80% primary perc...
