The article talks about the vascular complications that exist after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PCI includes coronary revascularizations in methods using balloons, stents and apparatus for plaque and thrombus removal. Vascular complications, that need surgical repair and blood transfusions, may occur to some patients who had PCI. Causes of complications and ways of declining it are discussed.
