  Purpose

To determine the safety and feasibility of same day discharge after elective coronary percutaneous intervention in a selected stable patient population. The hypothesis to be tested is that in an appropriately selected stable coronary artery disease population post percutaneous coronary intervention, early discharge is safe and feasible.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoints are patient satisfaction and safety. [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: August 2004
Study Completion Date: August 2006
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
1 Control
Patients are discharged the day after PCI
Procedure: Early discharge after percutaneous coronary intervenntion
Eligible patients receive Bivalirudin at the standard dose during PCI and all have to be eligible for femoral access seal.
2 Study group
Patients will be discharged 4-6 hrs after PCI
Procedure: Early discharge after percutaneous coronary intervenntion
Eligible patients receive Bivalirudin at the standard dose during PCI and all have to be eligible for femoral access seal.

Detailed Description:

A select stable population of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention are randomized to standard of care in-hospital stay for one night or early discharge to a nearby hotel. During PCI, patients receive bivalirudin as their anti-coagulant and also must be eligible for an angioseal closure device. Patients that stay overnight in the hotel must be accompanied by a family member. They return to the cath lab the next day for groin check and blood work. Satisfaction questionnaires are filled out by all patients.
