ORIGINAL RESEARCH INTERVENTIONAL Anatomic Snuffbox (Distal Radial Artery) and Radial Artery Access for Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms with FDA-Approved Flow Diverters A.L. Kühn, S.R. Satti, T. Eden, K. de Macedo Rodrigues, J. Singh, F. Massari, M.J. Gounis, and A.S Puri ABSTRACT BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Transradial access for neurointerventional procedures has been proved a safer and more comforta- ble alternative to femoral artery access. We present our experience with transradial (distal radial/anatomic snuffbox and radial ar- tery) access for treatment of intracranial aneurysms using all 3 FDA-approved ﬂow diverters. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a high-volume, dual-center, retrospective analysis of each institution’s data base between June 2018 and June 2020 and a collection of all patients treated with ﬂow diversion via transradial access. Patient demographic in- formation and procedural and radiographic data were obtained. RESULTS: Seventy-four patients were identiﬁed (64 female patients) with a mean age of 57.5 years with a total of 86 aneurysms. Most aneurysms were located in the anterior circulation (93%) and within the intracranial ICA (67.4%). The mean aneurysm size was 5.5 mm. Flow diverters placed included the Pipeline Embolization Device (Flex) (PED, n ¼ 65), the Surpass Streamline Flow Diverter (n ¼ 8), and the
