Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients who receive thrombolytic therapy in close temporal relationship to undergoing coronary or pulmonary angiography are at high risk of developing hemorrhagic complications, particularly at the vascular access site. A single-wall percutaneous puncture technique, use of a sheath for vascular access, use of a pigtail catheter for pulmonary angiography, avoidance of a temporary pacing catheter, and shortening the duration of thrombolytic therapy will decrease these complications. However, to maximize the safety of thrombolytic therapy, invasive vascular procedures should be avoided whenever possible.
