(March 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Kansas – According to research published in JAMA, major bleeding following a PCI greatly raises risk of death. Researchers studied over 3 million PCIs performed in the US between 2004-2011. There were nearly 58,000 major bleeding events and over 22,000 in hospital deaths. Results showed that major bleeding was strongly associated with risk of in-hospital mortality—accounting for roughly 12% of these deaths.
