Reflex sympathetic dystrophy following transbrachial cardiac catheterization.

PMID:  10973376     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We experienced a rare case of complication by reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) following transbrachial cardiac catheterization which may have been caused by poorly executed hemostasis using a hemostatic device. The symptoms of RSD markedly limited the patientOs daily work activities. Although the transbrachial approach is a useful procedure for cardiac catheterization, interventionalists should be aware that RSD may cause serious complications.
