AHA 2020 | Clopidogrel Resists as the Best Option in Elective Patients

High risk patients undergoing elective PCI treated with a more potent antiplatelet scheme (ticagrelor) vs. the classic clopidogrel do not see a benefit in protection against periprocedural events and instead see increased costs and minor bleeding rate.  These are the outcomes of the ALPHEUS study presented at AHA 2020 simultaneously published in the Lancet. Ticagrelor

Optimal Intervention Timing for NSTEMI with No Antiaggregant Pre-Treatment

Patients undergoing non-ST elevation MI (NSTEMI) who are not pre-treated with P2Y12 receptor inhibitors will benefit from a very early intervention strategy.  The optimal intervention timing for NSTEMI patients is still under debate, despite multiple studies, but the ideal timing had never been tested in patients with no platelet aggregation inhibitor pretreatment.  After the surge of

Virtual ACC 2020 | TWILIGHT-COMPLEX: Ticagrelor Monotherapy in the Most “Dangerous” Angioplasties

The original TWILIGHT findings in more than 9000 patients who underwent angioplasty were presented last year at TCT and showed a 3.1% absolute risk reduction in BARC 2, 3, or 5 bleeding with no increase in death, infarction, or stroke in patients who received ticagrelor and placebo compared with patients who received ticagrelor and aspirin. All patients

Virtual ACC 2020 | TAILOR-PCI: Gene-Based Prescribing of Clopidogrel Does Not Change Outcomes

This very interesting work leaves us with a sour taste in our mouth, as it failed to meet its primary endpoint. Using genotype to individualize treatment with a P2Y12 inhibitor in patients with acute coronary syndrome or stable patients after a scheduled angioplasty compared with conventional treatment with clopidogrel does not reduce the risk of

ARTE: ¿AsEl fin de la aspirina para los pacientes anticoagulados que reciben angioplastiapirina o aspirina más clopidogrel post TAVI?

Alternatives for Patients Allergic to Aspirin

Intolerance to aspirin is relatively frequent and there is no other non-steroid anti-inflammatory medication to replace it. The new guidelines of chronic coronary syndromes make class IIb recommendations to use prasugrel or ticagrelor in aspirin-intolerant patients. This is not meant to replace dual antiaggregation therapy in aspirin intolerant patients, when needed; it is just a

The First Antidote Against Ticagrelor Is a Rapid-Acting, Extended Effect Agent in Preliminary Results

This study attempts to test drug PB2452 for use in cases of catastrophic bleeding and, then, its potential use in other scenarios involving patients receiving ticagrelor. This specific ticagrelor reversal agent stops immediately and substantially the effect of the aforementioned P2Y12 receptor antagonist according to several test measurements conducted during this phase 1 trial in

Early Strut Coverage and Its Implications for Dual Antiplatelet Therapy

Optical coherence tomography (OCT)-guided drug-eluting stent implantation improves early strut coverage compared with angiography-guided angioplasty. No difference was observed in terms of strut coverage between permanent-polymer everolimus-eluting stents and bioresorbable-polymer biolimus-eluting stents. Short-term dual antiplatelet therapy may be feasible in selected patients with early strut coverage.   This study sought to measure early strut coverage

ARRIVE: la aspirina en el ojo de la tormenta de la prevención primaria

ESC 2018 | ARRIVE: Aspirin in the Eye of the Storm of Primary Prevention

Aspirin failed to reach the primary endpoint in a population that was at risk of experiencing cardiovascular disease. However, something that a short time ago seemed obvious could not be proved by randomizing 12,000 patients. The ARRIVE trial, presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress 2018 and simultaneously published in The Lancet, joins the

Fentanilo en la angioplatia: ¿Cuál es el precio de un mayor confort en el procedimiento?

First Results for Ticagrelor in Elective Coronary Angioplasty

This is one of the first studies on the use of ticagrelor in patients with stable coronary arteries who undergo elective angioplasty. Although its number of patients is low and its endpoints are soft, this work at least provides some support to what is already happening in daily clinical practice. Many patients admitted for a
