TRA is recommended as the preferred approach to perform coronary angiography and PCI. Despite this, TRA-PCI is burdened by a high access site crossover rate. Assisted-tracking techniques (balloon-assisted tracking and pigtail-assisted tracking) have showed to solve some of the issues related with challenging TRA procedures, but few data exist about procedural outcomes.

Abstract

TRA is recommended as the preferred approach to perform coronary angiography and PCI. Despite this, TRA-PCI is burdened by a high access site crossover rate. Assisted-tracking techniques (balloon-assisted tracking and pigtail-assisted tracking) have showed to solve some of the issues related with challenging TRA procedures, but few data exist about procedural outcomes. Aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the assisted-tracking (AsTra) techniques during transradial (TRA) percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
