Abstract

PurposeTransradial and transulnar artery approaches are commonly used for percutaneous interventions, with considerably low risk of developing hand ischemia, for reasons that have not been fully understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the changes in the diameter, peak systolic flow velocity (PSV), and volume flow (VF) of the radial (RA) and ulnar artery (UA) during unilateral reciprocal temporary occlusion.
