Penn researchers find heart attack patients not always receiving lowest-risk care
Physicians often treat heart attack patients with stents, which prop open the arteries to allow blood to flow again. Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania examined two approaches for placing stents: transradial, or entry through the wrist, or transfemoral, entry through the groin. They found that those at risk for more bleeding were often treated with a riskier procedure -- the transfemoral approach -- a demonstration of the so-called risk-treatment paradox. (2015-12-21)
