TRU, Transradial University, wants to spotlight the Arkansas Heart Hospital for their advances in radial artery access procedures. In conjunction with Jeff Martin from Cath Lab Digest, TRU filmed Dr. Mego, Dr. Rollefson and Taylor Thompson, RN, RCIS, explaining what we do at Arkansas Heart Hospital Clinic with our national radial training program as well as all aspects of radial arteriography. Our radial training program at our clinic has trained over 100 practitioners from across the country; many as far away as Fairbanks, Alaska. Arkansas Heart Hospital Clinic is the premier radial training site in the United States.

More than one million cardiac catheterizations are performed in the United States each year. Some are diagnostics, and others are interventional (angioplasty). Both procedures start the same, with a need to gain access to a patient’s arteries in order to determine if there is a blockage that may be restricting the flow of the blood and where the blockage may be. In the majority of procedures in the United States, access is made through the femoral artery located in the groin. Outside the United States, the preferred method in many countries is to go through the radial artery in the wrist (transradial access). This method is beginning to increase in the U.S., as well. Arkansas Heart Hospital is the state’s leader in the access strategy with Dr. William Rollefson who has been utilizing this method for four years.
Dr. Rollefson has recently taken part in an on-line continuing education event aimed at educating clinicians on the potential cost benefits of adopting a trans-radial PCI program. The event can be viewed by clicking the link below:

Just fifteen years ago, Arkansas Heart Hospital came into existence… a hope… a vision… a promise.
The dream became a reality only through the dedication and diligence of the physicians and staff, as they are the “heart” behind the miracles that walk out of these doors daily.
We salute you, Arkansas Heart Hospital, and the promise of another 15 years!
