Nearly 20 physicians from Latin America, Canada and the United States took part in an interventional cardiology training course at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, learning the latest procedures to access the heart through the radial artery in the wrist, rather than the femoral artery in the groin.

“This transradial approach can improve patient outcomes, especially in high-risk patients,” said Mauricio G. Cohen, M.D., professor of medicine and director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory. “More than 70 percent of our cardiac catheterization procedures involve access through the radial artery – almost twice the national average – and we have seen clear benefits in terms of lower bleeding, fewer vascular complications, and improved patient satisfaction.”
