Wrist Angioplasty Up-Close: New York Style
Mt. Sinai in NYCFor physicians (and others) who are interested in seeing an advanced PCI case using the transradial or wrist approach, tune in tomorrow morning at 8:00am to this month's Interventional Cardiology Live Case Study Series from Mount Sinai Medical Center (these live cases are hosted on -- subscription required).

Tomorrow's case will be a 65-year-old man and the plan is to perform PCI of his distal Left Main and LAD obstructions using stents delivered via the radial approach. The case operator will be Dr. Shamin Sharma of Mount Sinai and the moderator Dr. Sameer Mehta of University of Miami Medical Center. Dr. Mehta's recent LUMEN-AMI program featured the use of the transradial approach in STEMI. You can read our exclusive interview with Dr. Mehta on Angioplasty.Org.

And for patients who are trying to find an interventional cardiologist experienced in using the radial approach, check out Angioplasty.Org's Transradial Hospital Locator.
