A 78year old woman was admitted with an acute coronary syndrome. She underwent coronary angiography via the left radial artery which was complicated by a guide catheter induced radial artery perforation confirmed by extravasation of contrast into the forearm. We used balloon assisted tracking and guide catheter tamponade to complete the angioplasty procedure via the radial artery and successfully seal the radial artery perforation. We describe a series of 7 cases where this technique was used to both treat radial artery perforation and to complete the angioplasty via the radial approach.
