Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty without on-site surgical facilities.
Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is associated with a low risk of serious complications, the most important of which is acute coronary occlusion needling emergency surgery.
There is a consensus among many cardiologists and cardiac surgeons that all PTCA procedures need on-site surgical backup.
A task force report on PTCA by the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association mandates the presence of an on-site cardiovascular surgical team.
