Retroperitoneal Hemorrhage: Complications Following Diagnostic and Interventional Procedures

Friday, April 1, 2016 - Monday, April 30, 2018, Online, Online, FL

This module data shows a higher than desired level of complications, including retroperitoneal hemorrhage and pseudoaneurysm, following diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures.  We would like to have a decreased rate of complications related to diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures, including an overall decrease in mortality from such complications.


At the end of this course, participants should be able to:
  1. Identify patients at increased risk for retroperitoneal hemorrhage (RPH).
  2. List the treatment recommendations if RPH is suspected.
  3. Identify the procedural preventative techniques to reduce the risk of RPH, especially in high risk patients.
  4. State the appropriate time/situation to call for a Endo Vascular Specialist or Vascular Surgeon consult.
  5. Recognize common signs of RPH.
