The SAFE-PCI study found radial PCI led to fewer bleeding and vascular complications than femoral PCI in women.

The CHAMPION PHOENIX trial found that cangrelor lowered the rate of ischemic events during PCI, such as stent thrombosis, and did not significantly increase severe bleeding.

In OPEN II, investigators found the STENTYS Self-ApposingĀ® Stent, a paclitaxel-eluting stent, to be safe and effective six months into a clinical trial.
