Abstract


Arteria Lusoria or aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is present in 0.6–1.4% of individuals. The presence of ARSA can make a right transradial approach for coronary angiography and angioplasty technically more difficult. We describe a case in which a right Trans-radial approach for catheterization was successful in the setting of ARSA.
