The use of radial compression devices within the healthcare setting is rapidly rising in the United States and the United Kingdom. In North America traditional femoral artery access is still the used more often, but due to lower bleeding and lower site complications, radial access is growing considerably.
In the UK, more than 75% of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI, formerly known as angioplasty with stent) are administered through radial access. The paralleled rise in the occurrence of radial artery occlusion may be playing a factor in the increased demand for radial compression. Experts also note a desire to adopt procedures and proven innovative devices that help bring about positive patient experiences, medical savings, and shorter hospital stays.
