Results: There were no significant differences in access time, compression time, the amount of contrast material used, number of catheters used as well as the time to ambulation between the two groups (p>0.05), but the fluoroscopy time and interventional procedural time were significantly longer in right radial approach group than those in left radial approach group (p<0.05).The left radial approach group presented with a higher percentage of procedures completed using the assigned approach than that of right radial approach group (p<0.05).
