BACKGROUND Patients with indications for oral anticoagulation (OAC) undergoing percutaneous coronary artery stenting (PCI-S) represent a high-risk population for major bleeding complications. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is also associated with poor outcome after PCI-S. Limited data are available regarding the impact of CKD on the frequency of major bleeding and mortality in this population. METHODS We investigated the influence of CKD on major bleeding and all-cause mortality in patients… CONTINUE READING
