Published data on distal radial access has increased since its introduction via the Internet several years ago. Based on reports of over 4,000 procedures the success with the distal radial approach appears to be similar to that of tradition radial when good pulses are available. The distal radial approach may have advantages with preservation of radial artery function after catheterization.
