Abstract

Coronary angiography is a gold standard tool for diagnosis of coronary artery disease. After this test, patients are restricted in bed to prevent vascular complications. Immobilization and bed rest can cause back pain in these patients. The objective of this rapid systematic review is to assess the efficacy of interventions for reducing back pain after transfemoral coronary angiography. All published, peer-reviewed, English-language interventional studies from 1990 to 2017 were identified in a search of Scopus, PubMed, and CINAHL databases. Relevant studies were surveyed with experimental and quasiexperimental designs that assessed the interventions for reducing back pain after coronary angiography. Data were extracted from studies and assessed. Totally 9 studies with 1062 participants which evaluated the interventions for reducing back pain after coronary angiography were included. The findings of these studies suggest that early ambulation and modified positioning were effective to reduce back pain in patients undergoing coronary angiography. The use of early ambulation 2-4 hours after angiography and changing the patients' position along with modified positioning cause a reduction in the back pain of the patients.
