Angioplasty Safe at Hospitals Without On-Site Surgery: Review
Date:12/13/2011

coronary revascularization by [angioplasty] is relatively safe regardless of whether there is on-site [surgery]," he said. If on-site surgery is not available, "patients should know if there are systems in place to transfer them quickly to a hospital if this is required," said Kinlay, director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory and vascular medicine of the VA Boston Healthcare System.

This discussion is not essential following a heart attack. "However, in the non-heart attack setting, it would be reasonable to ask this question," Kinlay said. "At the time the guidelines were written, there was still some doubt about whether on-site [surgery] is a necessity," he added.

Many of the studies only recruited and included patients who are considered low risk. If ongoing trials "come to the same conclusion as this paper, future guidelines may suggest that patients with high-risk features" should have their angioplasty in a hospital with on-site bypass, whereas "[angioplasty] without on-site [bypass] may be more acceptable for the majority of average and low-risk patients," Kinlay noted.

"We should wait for further confirmation by the randomized trials before giving the absolute green light on this," Kinlay said, particularly as these studies may also help define who should have angioplasty in hospitals with on-site bypass surgery.
