OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess the safety of arteriotomy closure devices (ACDs) versus mechanical compression by meta-analysis in patients undergoing percutaneous transfemoral coronary procedures. BACKGROUND Although ACDs are widely applied for hemostasis after percutaneous endovascular procedures, their safety is controversial. METHODS Randomized, case-control, and cohort studies comparing access-related complications using ACDs versus mechanical compression were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
