An innovative approach, that offers a distinct departure from traditional groin-based procedures for diagnosing and treating heart conditions. 

In the traditional approach to angiography and related procedures aimed at diagnosing and mitigating heart issues, a catheter is threaded through the femoral artery in the groin. In contrast, transradial angiography utilizes the radial artery in the wrist as the point of entry. This shift in access brings forth a range of patient benefits that enhance both comfort and safety.

One significant advantage of transradial angiography is its potential to allow patients to ambulate shortly after the procedure. In contrast, with the femoral approach, patients are required to remain in bed for a prolonged period post-procedure. This distinction underscores the outpatient nature of transradial angiography, wherein patients can undergo the procedure and be discharged within approximately three hours, encompassing admission, necessary blood tests, echocardiogram, the procedure itself, and the subsequent discharge.

Of paramount importance is the lower risk profile associated with transradial angiography. Bleeding complications, a prevalent concern with the femoral approach, are notably diminished with the wrist-based method. The radial artery's proximity to the skin's surface allows swift identification and management of any potential bleeding, thus minimizing risks.

During the angiography procedure, a minute incision is made either in the upper part of the leg or just above the hand. Through this incision, a slender plastic tube, known as a catheter, is threaded into a blood vessel situated beneath the cut. Guided by this catheter, the medical team navigates through the intricate network of blood vessels until it reaches the heart. This pivotal step sets the stage for a series of tests, with coronary angiography being a prevalent choice. In this procedure, a contrast dye is introduced, generating vivid images that illuminate potential blockages within the heart's arteries.

Dr Sandhu's precise execution of transradial angiography reflects a seamless fusion of advanced medical knowledge and practical skill, prioritizing patient well-being and pioneering transformative pathways in cardiac care.
