  3. Participation in an investigational study of a new drug, biologic or device that has not reached its primary endpoint at the time of study screening;
  4. Uncorrectable coagulopathies such as thrombocytopenia <40,000/ μL, international normalization ratio (INR) >2.0;
  5. Contraindication to angiography or catheterization, including untreatable allergy to iodinated contrast media;
