Patients subject to bleeding complications following PCI can be better identified using a predictive risk model and a new definition of site-reported arterial access site bleeding, according to a study in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions. "Risk models that use this expanded definition provide accurate estimates of post-PCI bleeding risk, thereby better informing clinical decision making and facilitating risk-adjusted provider feedback to support quality improvement," SCAI fellow Dr. Sunil Rao and co-authors wrote.
