Medical: Cardiology
English term or phrase: sandbag
Si parla di percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty

In coronary angiography, the introducer sheath may be removed fter the procedure. With interventional procedures, the introducer sheaths usually remain in place for a specific time. Patients move to either the coronary care unit or an interventional unit for continued monitoring after PTCA. In both procedures, manual pressure and / or a mechanical compression device is applied to the site after the introducer sheath is discontinued. Some hospitals also require application of a sandbag.

sacco / sacchetto di sabbia
Explanation:
Credo che si tratti proprio di questo. Evidentemente, come indica anche l'ultima parte del passo citato, in alcuni ospedali viene utilizzato anche un sacchetto di sabbia per aumentare la compressione sul torace del paziente.
