What are the causes of absent radial pulse ?

• Aberrant radial artery or congenital anomaly (check the brachials and blood pressure).
• Artery tied off at surgery or previous surgical cut-down.
• Catheterization of the brachial artery with poor technique.
• Following a radial artery line for monitoring of blood gases or arterial pressure.
• Subclavian artery stenosis.
• Blalock-Taussig shunt on that side (shunt from subclavian to pulmonary artery).
• Embolism into the radial artery (usually due to atrial fibrillation).
• Takayasu's arteritis (rare).
