Transradial percutaneous coronary artery interventions are increasingly used because of low complication rates and patients' convenience. However, the radial artery is more vulnerable to damage due to its small diameter and frequent anatomical variations. We experienced a case of forearm compartment syndrome after transradial percutaneous coronary artery intervention which has not been reported in Korean literature yet. We report the case with a review of the literature.
