Patient preference: An important emerging factor in operator access site selection

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Patient preference should emerge as a third component influencing radial versus femoral access for cardiac catheterization. Ideally dually experienced “switch-operators” will consider co-morbidities, technical procedural factors, and patient preferences to choose a tailored approach with each patient. A tailored and tempered three component approach to access selection which includes patient preferences will likely optimize patient-centered outcomes.
