Abstract

Artifactual nonvisualization of hand arteries can be suspected on the basis of the lack of collateral circulation from the visualized system and washout of contrast material via the palmar arches. These signs should lead the angiographer to search for an abnormal vascular pattern in order to obtain an angiogram with complete visualization of the hand arteries.
