Abstract: Coronary angiographies that are performed via the radial artery generally have lower bleeding complications, however, patients are at risk of radial artery occlusion, with resultant digital ischaemia. This report describes a case of digital ischaemia after transradial coronary angiography in a patient with essential thrombocytosis. Risk factors for thrombo-occlusive complications, and potential prevention strategies are also explored.
