Lower complication rates associated with transradial versus transfemoral flow diverting stent placement. Journal of neurointerventional surgery 31 (2021). Doi:10. 1136/neurintsurg-2020-015992. Abstract background currently, there are no large-scale studies in the neurointerventional literature comparing safety between transradial (t ra) and transfemoral (tfa) approaches for flow diversion procedures. This study aims to assess complication rates in a large multicenter registry for tra versus tfa flow diversion. Methods we retrospectively analyzed flow diversion cases for cerebral aneurysms fro m 14 institutions from 2010 to 2019. Pooled analysis of proportions was calculated using weighted analysis with 95%ci to account for results from multiple centers. Access site complication rate and overall complication rate were compared between the two approaches. Results a total of 2,285 patients who underwent flow diversion were analyzed, with 134 (5. 86%) treated with tra and 2151 (94. 14%) via tfa. The two groups shared similar patient and aneurysm characteristics. Crossover from tra to tfa was documented in 12 (8. 63%) patients. There were no access site complications in the tra group. There was a significantly higher access site complication rate in the tfa cohort as compared with tra (2. 48%, 95%ci 2. 40% to 2. 57%, vs 0%;p
=
0. 039). One death resulted from a femoral access site complication. The overall complications rate was also higher in the tfa group (9. 02%, 95%ci 8. 15% to 9. 89%) compared with the tra group (3. 73%, 95%ci 3. 13% to 4. 28%; p
=
0. 035). Conclusion tra may be a safer approach for flow diversion to treat cerebral aneurysms at a wide range of locations. Both access site complication rate and overall complication rate were lower for tra flow diversion compared with tfa in this large series. Reported events. - a complication rate of 8. 61% was observed in the total cohort (199 of 2311 patients). This included 53 access site complications, 46 bleeding events (1. 99%; subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracerebral hematoma or subdural hematoma), 25 strokes with permanent deficit (1. 08%), 47 strokes with temporary deficit or unspecified temporality (2. 03%), 11 silent infarcts (0. 48%), five new cranial nerve deficits (0. 22%), and 29 other complications (1. 25%). Access site complications were more common during femoral access, occurring in 53 of 2151 cases (2. 48%, 95% ci 2. 40% to 2. 57%) versus 0 of 134 for radial access (0%, p
=
0. 039). There were four (0. 19%) femoral arterial occlusions, 35 (1. 63%) superficial hematomas/pseudoaneurysms, 13 (0. 60%) retroperitoneal hematomas, and one (0. 05%) arteriovenous fistula, with six (0. 28%) patients requiring blood transfusion.
