Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The AmBulatory Closure Device Percutaneous Intervention (ABCD-PCI) study is a multicenter randomized prospective controlled trial evaluating the safety of and patient satisfaction with same-day discharge following ambulatory percutaneous intervention with a closure device. This article reviews the findings from a single center, Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital, from October 2008 through April 2010, with 23 patients in the same-day discharge group and 21 patients in the next-day discharge group. There were no differences between the groups in demographic or procedure characteristics. Outcomes were measured by a questionnaire and 7-day and 30-day follow-up phone calls. Results showed that same-day discharge after percutaneous intervention with a closure device is as safe as next-day discharge. However, there was a trend for a higher comfort level among patients in the next-day discharge group.
