Minimising bleeding during percutaneous coronary intervention

In 2013 more than 92 500 percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures were performed in the United Kingdom alone.1 Bleeding events are among the most common complications; reported incidences vary between 2.2% and 14%.2 Peri-procedural bleeding has a negative effect on patients’ outcomes—as indicated by higher mortality and morbidity and diminished quality of life—and on metrics of healthcare provision such as length of stay and associated costs.3 Large registries of US patients undergoing PCI have shown that 12.1% of in-hospital mortality is attributable to post-procedural bleeding and suggest a significant association between major bleeding and in-hospital mortality across all strata of bleeding risk.4 The 2011 American Heart Association guidelines state that all patients should be evaluated for risk of bleeding before PCI (class of recommendation 1, level of evidence C).5

So the bottom line is that if you see someone who you think might be worth having their heart looked at, go ahead and slap an ultrasound probe on their chest.
