The RAVI registry: prospective, multicenter study of radial access in embolization procedures – 30 days follow up


“This paper opens new pathways to treat our patients safely in daycare. For embolisation procedures, also in oncology, radial access is a very important step to increase quality of care and reducing costs. By reducing an embolization procedure to a short outpatient procedure we emphasize our unique treatment options. This is what I mean by 'Getting it right'!”


Jim Reekers, CVIR Endovascular Editor-in-Chief

How to write a title

The title is not a narrative.
The title of a paper should be short and to the point. It should attract readers and should also appear interesting in literature searches.
