Abstract

We examined the safety and feasibility of elective outpatient transradial coronary angioplasty (PCI). Four hundred and forty two patients underwent procedures over a 4-year period. Over 95% had an excellent angiographic result and 85% were discharged the same day. Radial access was successful in 417 (94%) patients. There were no major vascular complications. One patient died of a subacute stent thrombosis. Outpatient transradial PCI is safe and feasible for the majority of elective PCI cases.
