TR Band is a compression device designed to assist haemostasis of the radial artery after a transradial procedure. Through the transparent structure designed for visual control and selective compression of the radial artery to allow blood return and preserve patency, TR Band assists in maintaining radial artery patency at the time of haemostasis in order to prevent future radial artery occlusion.1, 2
