BACKGROUND. Arterial access site complications remain the most frequent adverse events after percutaneous transluminal procedures. We investigated the safety and efficacy of the pro-coagulant wound dressing Neptune Pad ® compared to conventional manual compression for access site management after peripheral percutaneous interventions.
METHODS. We enrolled 201 consecutive patients and randomly assigned patients for Neptune Pad ® (n=100) vs. conventional manual compression (n=101). Patients were followed clinically until hospital discharge and by duplex ultrasound at 24 hours postprocedure for occurrence of access site complications. Time-to-hemostasis and time-to-ambulation were recorded, patients´ and physicians´ discomfort were measured using a visual analogue scale.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

Tight coverings for the foot and leg that are worn to aid circulation in the legs and prevent the formation of EDEMA and DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS. PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION STOCKINGS serve a similar purpose especially for bedridden patients and following surgery.
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
