Abstract

The radial artery approach is becoming more popular for diagnostic cardiaccatheterization and interventional procedures because of its lower incidence of access site complications and decreased patient discomfort after the procedure. However, Alien's test reveals inadequate blood supply through the ulnar artery to the hand, and therefore the approach does not seem to be suitable in 10%-30% of patients. Here we demonstrated a new percutaneous ulnar artery approach for coronary angiography in nine patients. We succeededin obtaining an entry site into the left ulnar artery in seven patients. The average time for cannulation and that for catheterization procedure werecomparable with those of the radial approach previously reported from other laboratories. Complications such as bleeding, loss of an ulnar pulse, ulnar nerve injury, and the formation of an aneurysm or fistula were not observed in any patient. The ulnar approach may be another technique that decreases patient discomfort and risk, while preserving the radial artery as a potential coronary bypass graft for surgical myocardial revascularization.
