Abstract

Obtaining femoral and radial arterial access in the cardiac catheterization laboratory using state-of-the-art techniques is essential to optimize outcomes, patient satisfaction, and procedural efficiency. Although transradial access is increasingly used for coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention, femoral access remains necessary for numerous procedures, many requiring large-bore access, including complex high-risk coronary interventions, structural procedures, and procedures involving mechanical circulatory support. For femoral access, contemporary access techniques should combine the use of fluoroscopy, ultrasound, micropuncture needle, femoral angiography, and vascular closure devices, when feasible. For radial access, ultrasound may reveal important anatomic features and expedite access. Despite randomized controlled trials supporting use of routine ultrasound guidance for femoral and/or radial arterial access, ultrasound remains underused in cardiac catheterization laboratories. This article reviews contemporary techniques to achieve optimal arterial access in the cardiac catheterization laboratory.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 139. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 January 2018.
All research outputs
#65,498
of 8,941,305 outputs
Outputs from JACC Cardiovascular Interventions
#6
of 1,206 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#3,570
of 237,392 outputs
Outputs of similar age from JACC Cardiovascular Interventions
#1
of 88 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,941,305 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,206 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.9. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 237,392 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 88 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
