Strengthen your current knowledge base and learn how to use transradial access for more complex intervention.

In this course you will:

  • Discuss tips and tricks on complex cases from leading experts
  • Review case examples to improve skillset with tortuous and complex
  • anatomy
  • Learn a full range of interventions

Course format: Virtual webinar
Post-course offerings: Virtual remote case observation





understand the latest tools and techniques for complex cases.

For individuals who already perform most neurovascular cases using radial access and want to keep up-to-date on the latest tools and techniques.

In this course you will:

  • Learn how to diversify radial access treatment techniques and disease states treated
  • Engage in peer-led discussion on preferred tools and workflows to expand application in various NV disease states and anatomy
  • Learn advanced radial practice through a cased-based discussion on resolving complications, acute cases, and distal radial

Course format: 1 day, hands on
Post-course offerings: Virtual remote case observation





For nurses/techs working with physicians who are working toward adopting radial use in their practice.

In this course you will:

  • Understand cath lab set up, radial tool set and optimized workflow for efficient and successful radial procedures

Course format: 1 day, hands on
