ESC 2021 | MASTER DAPT: Dual Antiplatelet Therapy After Coronary Angioplasty in Patients at High Bleeding Risk

Courtesy of Dr. José Álvarez. In patients at high bleeding risk with drug-eluting stents, the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy has been subjected to ongoing review. Guidelines from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) suggest shortening this treatment to a maximum of three to six months (Class IIb).

Dual Antiaggregation De-Escalation: A New Paradigm?

De-escalating dual antiaggregation could be the most effective strategy after acute coronary syndrome seeing as it prevents bleeding and cut down costs with no increase of ischemic events.  Balancing the effects of dual antiaggregation therapy (DAPT) in the era of potent P2Y12 inhibitors has become the cornerstone of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) management.  This meta-analysis

AAS vs DAPT post TAVI: Meta-Analysis of Randomized Studies

Aspirin monotherapy (ASA) reduced the combined risk of thrombotic and bleeding events compared against dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in patients receiving transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). This meta-analysis has only reproduced smaller randomize study outcomes and does not include the OCEAN-TAVI registry, the only one that has shown something different so far.  Even though ASA

DAPT vs. Monotherapy: The Dilemma Remains After Surgery

Patients who undergo myocardial revascularization surgery and are discharged on dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT)—aspirin plus clopidogrel—have a lower risk of major cardiovascular and cerebral events than patients on aspirin monotherapy. Furthermore, the risk of bleeding is not increased for those receiving DAPT. This information comes from a registry of over 18,000 patients recently published in the

Very Short Dual Antiplatelet Therapy after Complex PCI

The 1-month outcomes of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) followed by clopidogrel monotherapy were comparable to 12-month DAPT in patients with both simple and complex PCI. There was no significant interaction between DAPT period and procedure difficulty.  This is a post hoc study of the STOPDAPT-2 that looked at the complex PCI patient subgroup.   It is

Single or Dual Antiplatelet Therapy in Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack?

Antiplatelet therapy is key to prevent thrombotic events after a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or ischemic stroke. The role of aspirin is well established in this scenario, but there is emerging evidence for a short period of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). Now, can this strategy avoid recurrent strokes without paying a price in terms of

Xience Receives CE Mark for Short and Ultrashort DAPT Schemes

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) one month after angioplasty with Xience stent was approved in Europe for patients with high risk of bleeding.   The CE Mark approval comes after studies Xience 28 and Xience 90 are published. Immediately after authorization, Abbot was fast to announce what they consider to be the shortest approved scheme with the most

Dual Antiplatelet Therapy and TAVR: Obsolete Guidelines

The current guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) 3 to 6 months after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVI). Some recent data finally condensed in the present meta-analysis and recently published in JAHA happen to challenge these guidelines.  Clinical studies that investigated single antiplatelet therapy versus DAPT until November 2020 were analyzed and divided according to

Short Therapy and Monotherapy, Plenty of Evidence

A short dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) of 1 to 3 months followed by P2Y12 inhibitor monotherapy after second generation drug eluting stent (DES) implantation is safer and as effective as the traditional scheme. The idea is clear, but why hasn’t aspirin monotherapy been tested as follow up? Is aspirin old fashioned? Are there physiopathological reasons
