Abstract

Critical hand ischemia is an extremely rare and serious complication of transradial coronary angiography. It is almost always associated with radial artery occlusion. Early recognition and involvement of vascular surgery is imperative for optimal management. Up to our knowledge, there have been only 5 cases reported in the medical literature. Herein, we describe a case of an 81-year-old male who had undergone transradial coronary intervention complicated by critical hand ischemia requiring amputation of the right 4th finger.
