Terumo Medical has launched its Transradial University, an informational website that highlights the training and information needs of physicians and other medical professionals interested in expanding their use of transradial access as an alternative vascular access site.

The web site, www.transradialuniversity.com, offers informational modules intended to provide physicians an introduction to various aspects of transradial cases from arterial access through hemostasis, including tips and tricks, with contributions from transradialists, such as Sunil V. Rao, MD, from Duke University, according to the Somerset, N.J.-based company.

In the U.S., transradial access accounts for an estimated 3-5 percent of cases, where femoral access has been the dominant strategy.
