Vote for Radial!
Radial ApproachThis week's poll on is about the transradial (wrist) approach to catheterization and angioplasty. The question is "Should radial access become the default choice for PCI?" (scroll down to access the item.)

We, at Angioplasty.Org, have been bringing this technique of catheter-based interventions to the forefront and now, (part of WebMD) has taken up the question.

The current voting is 47% to 53%, slightly favoring femoral -- but this almost 50/50 vote is interesting, since currently in the United States, only 3% of PCIs are done radially. If you favor the radial approach, let your voice be heard!
