The transradial approach for coronary angiography was first described in 1989. With the advent of modern equipment and improved technology it has recently gained significant interest amongst interventional cardiologists. As compared to femoral access, the radial approach has the major advantages of lower access site complication rates, cost-effectiveness, and shorter hospital stays. Further clinical benefits of lower morbidity and cardiac mortality in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction have been shown recently. Rare vascular complications may include radial artery spasm, dissection, occlusion, perforation or compartment syndrome. Here, we present two unusual cases of an entrapped catheter in the radial artery and their outcomes.
