Abstract

Transradial access for ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) has been shown to reduce mortality, major adverse cardiac events and bleeding, when compared with femoral access. Often patients with STEMIs present in the setting of cardiogenic shock and cardiac arrest. Prior published work has established the mortality benefit with early percutaneous coronary intervention in patients presenting with out of hospital cardiac arrests. However, the utility of transradial intervention in such patients is still under study. We present a case of transradial primary intervention performed during cardiopulmonary resuscitation for a patient who presented with an antero-septal MI.
