Description/Abstract

This is an uncommon, but probably underrecognised complication. Those performing cardiac catheterisation via the right brachial artery should be aware of the potential risks of damage to the median nerve. They should evaluate hand function after the procedure and take prompt action if median nerve dysfunction is noted. Damage to the median nerve results in appreciable long term disability, which may have medicolegal relevance.
