Here, we evaluate the efficacy of the Clo-Sur PAD nonwoven hydrophilic wound dressing (HWD) on hemostasis in an arterial-access site after transradial percutaneous coronary angiography compared with the RadiStop compression device (CD). Eighty patients who had undergone transradial coronary angiography with or without intravascular ultrasound were randomly assigned to the HWD or CD group. The time required to achieve hemostasis was measured, and the incidence of vascular complications was assessed. No significant differences in clinical and procedural characteristics were observed between the HWD group (n = 40) and the CD group (n = 40). A significant reduction in the time required to achieve hemostasis (58.7 +/- 32.6 minutes versus 131.3 +/- 59.1 minutes; p < 0.001) was associated with the use of HWD. The incidence of vascular complications was similar in both groups (5% for HWD versus 2.5% for CD; p = 0.500). No major complications, such as large hematoma or acute radial occlusion, occurred in the HWD group. In conclusion, HWD represents a safe alternative to the compression method. Hemostasis can be achieved more quickly using HWD, with no increase in access site complications, as compared to CD.
