A paper by Nadia R. Sutton, Milan Seth, Natesh Lingham, and Hitinder Gurm was published in 2020 in Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions. In the largest real-world example of dialysis patients undergoing PCI via radial access, Radial Access Use for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Dialysis Patients follows 6359 patients who underwent PCI in hospitals participating in the BMC2 registry. The study found that patients who had their PCI performed through femoral access had a higher unadjusted risk of transfusion, bleeding, and death than those who had their PCI performed through radial access.
