The forearm is supinated, and the hand is dorsally extended at the wrist. Splints are available that help keep the hand in this position.

Occasionally a marked kinking of the iliac arteries or aorta can impede the control of the catheter and correct placement of the catheter. The operator can then use the radial artery as an alternative. This problem usually cannot be predicted and is only recognized during the first catheterization via the femoral artery. Further reasons to choose the brachial or radial artery for access are inflammatory skin conditions or marked scarring in the groin. As noted, an essential advantage of the nonfemoral access is that the patient does not need to be immobilized after catheterization.
