This month on “Vascular Access: The VDM Clinician Blog,” contributors Ajay Mhatre, MD, Robert Candipan, MD, PhD, FACC, FSCAI, and Richard Heuser, MD, FACC, FSCAI, FACP, FESC, discuss a case of a 65-year-old male with symptomatic carotid artery disease and peripheral vascular disease.

Because of his severe PAD, including an aorto-bifemoral artery bypass, the authors were unable to obtain femoral artery access for intervention. Read “A Road Less Traveled: Access in the Right Brachial Artery” for description of the approach to the intervention via the right brachial artery.
