Dr. Sameh Sayfo discusses Radial to Peripheral Tools & Technique on the BackTable 395 Podcast

Dr. Sameh Sayfo

Dr. Sameh Sayfo is an interventional cardiologist and the program director of endovascular intervention fellowship at Baylor Scott & White in Plano, Texas.

Dr. Aaron Fritts discusses Radial to Peripheral Tools & Technique on the BackTable 395 Podcast

Dr. Aaron Fritts

Dr. Aaron Fritts is a Co-Founder of BackTable and a practicing interventional radiologist in Dallas, Texas.

Synopsis

Dr. Sayfo points out the need for research data on the financial impact of these interventions on patients. Dr. Amit P. Amin’s work in 2017, 2018 and 2021 is highlighted for its valuable contribution in this area, specifically in the radial to coronary world. The conversation then veers into the possibilities for radial to peripheral interventions in the coming years. There’s a discussion about the potential financial impact on the healthcare system, and how radial to peripheral interventions may yield a lower length of stay and more same day discharges, which can serve as motivators for more practitioners to adopt this technology. The episode also highlights training, patient selection, complications, bailout techniques and post-procedure care related to radial to peripheral interventions.
