  • In the >130 centers, manual compression and VCD were used at similar rates (50.9% vs. 49.1%).
  • In unmatched analysis, ASC were significantly less frequent in every distinct VCD treatment group rather than in the group that received external physical compression alone.
  • In this study patients who received VCD after PVI via femoral approach had fewer complications and improved mortality than those who received external physical compression alone.
  • Randomized comparisons of these hemostatic strategies are needed to confirm our findings.
