Aims: To verify the scientific evidence in the literature about nursing care after coronary transluminal angioplasty, from 2005 to 2019.

Methodology: This is an Integrative Review, performed in the LILACS, MEDLINE and Google Scholar databases, including original and review articles, theses, dissertations and monographs published in Portuguese or English in the last 15 years (2005-2019). Data were collected using the Ursi’s instrument and data analysis was carried out by the use Bardin’s Content Analysis.

Results: 06 articles were found and two categories emerged: Nursing diagnoses after coronary transluminal angioplasty and Nursing interventions after coronary transluminal angioplasty. The nursing process should be carried out in its entirety so that the results of nursing care are effective and the improvement of the quality of the services provided is continuous.  

Conclusion: it is concluded that nursing actions are beyond bedside care, as they also include management services of inputs and human resources.
