We report the case of a patient with a history of clopidogrel-induced TTP who subsequently was successfully treated with aspirin, ticlopidine and cilostazol after stenting for severe, symptomatic coronary(More)
We compared in-hospital femoral complications of Angio-Seal, Perclose, and manual compression in consecutive patients who underwent percutaneous coronary interventions in the era of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa platelet inhibition. Femoral closure devices have a similar overall risk profile as manual compression, even in patients treated with glycoprotein IIb/IIIa(More)
