Technical features local vascular complications and patient experiences regarding of vascular entry path used for percutaneous coronary intervention [Perkütan Koroner Girisim Için Kullanilan Vasküler Giris Yoluna Iliskin Teknik Özellikler, Lokal Vasküler Komplikasyonlar ve Hasta Deneyimleri]
Objective: The presented descriptive and cross-sectional study was planned to evaluate the vascular pathway used in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the technical characteristics of the procedure, local vascular complications, and patient experience. Material and Methods: The study universe consisted of all patients who underwent PCI for treatment between 30 January 2017-30 March 2017. It was aimed to reach the whole universe. A total of 112 patients who had no communication disability and accepted to participate in the study were reached. As data tools; a form containing technical information on the process, a data form consisting of 34 questions to determine the general descriptive characteristics and experience of the participants, and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (Form TX-I) were used. Results: There was no significant difference between the vascular access path with compare the duration of the procedure, the radiation used and the amount of contrast dose. The duration of pressure applied after sheath removal in patients treated with radial access and the duration of total bed rest duration after procedure were found to be significantly shorter. There wasn't significant difference in terms of local vascular complications. The mean anxiety score totally of the 112 participants was found to be 35.43±123.80. Comparison to the cases administered radial artery interventions, cases that were administered femoral artery intervention were found to have significantly more complaints about pain, staying in bed , elimination and sleep problems. It was found that the patients expressed who performed TR access that they felt more comfortable compared to the TF access group and the difference was statistically significant. Conclusion: Determining the vascular access way to be used in PCI based on the evidence and implementing current approaches will positively affect patient experience and clinical outcomes. © 2019 OrtadogÃ‚ÂŸu Reklam Tanitim Yayincilik Turizm Egitim Insaat Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S..
