Treatments triptable, radial, femoral
Sponsor Marilia Medicine School
Start date July 2014
End date July 2015
Trial size 99 participants
Trial identifier NCT02200783, 718016, CAAE 32767514.0.0000.5413


Excessive radiation received by the operator has been described as a possible drawback of the radial catheterization technique when compared with the femoral access.

The study hypothesis is that the use of radial access device dedicated radioprotective TRIPTable ® (Transradial Intervention Table Protection) is not inferior to standard femoral technique and superior to standard radial technique as radioprotection strategy to the operator in patients with acute coronary syndromes acute and submitted to cardiac catheterization.

Study Design

Allocation randomized
Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
(Active Comparator)
Cardiac catheterization and coronary angioplasty performed via standard radial artery technique.
radial PHILIPS standard cath arm support - NCVA097
Standard radial artery catheterization procedure, performed for the purpose of coronary angiography and ad hoc angioplasty if necessary.
(Active Comparator)
Cardiac catheterization and coronary angioplasty performed via standard femoral artery technique.
Standard femoral artery catheterization procedure, performed for the purpose of coronary angiography and ad hoc angioplasty if necessary. The supporting device will be the patient's own body, placing the material above the legs.
Cardiac catheterization and coronary angioplasty performed with standard transradial technique plus using the TRIPTable device.
triptable TRansradial Intervention Protection Table
Details of the device previously described, designed to medical operator radioprotection. No changes in radial technique beyond the use of the supportive device will be performed.

Additional Information

Official title Randomized Comparison of Radiological Exposure Between Radial and Femoral Technique Assessing Use of Protective Device Dedicated TRIPTable® in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes Undergoing Cardiac Catheterization
Description This study is prospective, 1:1:1 randomized, unicentric, comparative between femoral and radial radial technique with and without dedicated TRIPTable ® device. The TripTable device is a polycarbonate support table anatomically-designed to facilitate the radial technique, facilitating the puncturing, positioning, support to work material and providing further radioprotection from a lead layer without obstruction in viewing the fluoroscopic images.
