The feasibility and safety of outpatient coronary angiography were studied in 2,106 patients.
Patients were discharged with a pressure dressing 2 h after the angiographic study.
No complications occurred in 99.53% of all patients.
Severe complications were seen in 10 patients (0.47%). 9 patients (0.43%) had to be admitted to hospital, either for immediate treatment (4 patients) or due to complications (5 patients).
Our results revealed a very low complication rate for outpatient coronary angiography.
The number and severity of complications following coronary angiography did not differ significantly between inpatients and outpatients.
