The article reports on a study comparing safety in same-day discharge of patients with overnight hospital stay after elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). Randomized, controlled, noninferiority trial was designed at the University hospital, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 800 patients were given anticoagulation medications and discharged either four hours after PCI or the next day. The results show that same-day discharge was noninferior for safety to staying overnight in hospital.
