Bleeding complications are associated with an adverse outcome after a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is performed. Traditional risk factors for bleeding complications are age, gender, underweight, hypertension, and renal impairment. The aim of our study was to identify the independent predictors of bleeding complications in patients undergoing a PCI with concomitant treatment with bivalirudin.
