OBJECTIVES To compare the radial versus femoral approach using Angio-Seal for the incidence of access site complications among non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome patients undergoing invasive strategy. BACKGROUND Arterial access is a major site of complications after invasive coronary procedures. Vascular closure devices provide more comfort(More)
BACKGROUND Arterial access is a major site of bleeding complications after invasive coronary procedures. Among strategies to decrease vascular complications, the radial approach is an established one. Vascular closure devices provide more comfort to patients and decrease hemostasis and need for bed rest. However, the inconsistency of data proving their(More)
BACKGROUND The radial access provides a lower risk of bleeding and vascular complications related to the puncture site in comparison to the femoral access. Recent studies have suggested a reduction in mortality associated with the radial access in patients with acute myocardial infarction undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. OBJECTIVE To compare(More)
The early interventionist strategy represents an important step in the treatment of non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI), due to its superiority in reducing death and reinfarction when compared to the conservative strategy.1 Since the completion of invasive coronary procedures undergoing therapy Intense antithrombotic therapy predisposes(More)
Background: In addition to providing greater comfort and convenience for the patient, the radial approach is associated to lower rates of vascular complications and major bleeding, with potential impact on morbidity and mortality. Thus, the adoption of strategies that reduce the risk of arterial occlusion after invasive procedures, enabling it to be reused,(More)
