Comparison of Hemostasis Times With a Kaolin-Based Hemostatic Pad (QuikClot Radial) vs Mechanical Compression (TR Band) Following Transradial Access: A Pilot Prospective Study

Jonathan S. Roberts, MD;  Jianli Niu, MD, PhD;  Juan A. Pastor-Cervantes, MD

Published online ahead of print on 2017 Aug 15

Hemostasis following transradial access (TRA) is usually achieved by mechanical compression. We investigated use of the QuikClot Radial hemostasis pad compared with the TR Band to shorten hemostasis after TRA.
