Although the common femoral artery is the easiest and most widely accepted access site for cerebral angiography, atherosclerotic, aortoiliac, or femoral artery disease can preclude this approach. We describe our experience using the ulnar artery access site in a patient with bilateral aortoiliac occlusive disease. This article may be useful to neuroradiologists who encounter difficulty with other arterial access sites. A description of the technique and a review of the pertinent literature are provided.
