Transradial access has been advocated as the preferred vascular access because of its lower rate of vascular complications, improved patient comfort and satisfaction, and earlier ambulation. However transradial approach had its own limitations and challenges, including unique anomalous anatomies, small-calibred vessel, vasospasm etc. the We share some of the difficulties and offer possible solutions to commonly encountered problems.
