Red cell distribution width as a bleeding predictor after percutaneous coronary intervention
Coronary Artery Disease
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
Red cell distribution width, an easily obtainable marker, has an independent, linear relationship with major bleeding post-PCI and incrementally improves the well-validated NCDR risk prediction model. These data suggest that further investigation is necessary to determine the relationship of RDW and post-PCI bleeding.
