The feasibility and safety of outpatient coronary angiography were studied in 2,106 patients. Patients were discharged with a pressure dressing 2 h after the angiographic study. No complications occurred in 99.53% of all patients. Severe complications were seen in 10 patients (0.47%). 9 patients (0.43%) had to be admitted to hospital, either for immediate treatment (4 patients) or due to complications (5 patients). Our results revealed a very low complication rate for outpatient coronary angiography. The number and severity of complications following coronary angiography did not differ significantly between inpatients and outpatients. Therefore, outpatient coronary angiography can be considered as a safe and feasible diagnostic method which may help cut health care costs.
