Evaluating the effect of ulnar artery compression while pressing on radial artery to stop bleeding, in maintaining radial artery potency, after cardiac catheterization through the radial artery. We prospectively plan to compare 650 patients referred for cardiac catheterization, randomized into two groups, one group receiving radial artery compression for stopping bleeding, in a standard fashion following best practices, and the other group receiving radial artery compression using standard best practices and ulnar artery compression. Radial artery status will be evaluated in 24 hours and 30 days of the procedure to evaluate its potency, using plethysmography.

Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Patent hemostasis
Patent hemostasis is the technique for radial artery hemostasis after transradial catheterization, with proactive attempt to maintain radial artery hemostasis and radial artery patency.
Procedure: Ulnar artery compression
Compression of ulnar artery for 2 hours with radial artery hemostasis
Active Comparator: Ulnar artery compression
Ulnar artery compression will involve radial artery hemostasis using patent hemostasis technique and compression of ulnar artery to the point of occluding flow, in an attempt to augment radial artery flow.
Procedure: Ulnar artery compression
Compression of ulnar artery for 2 hours with radial artery hemostasis
