La complejidad de la angioplastia puede definir el tiempo de doble antiagregación

Optimal Duration of DAPT with Oral Anticoagulation After PCI?: 1 Month vs. 3 Months

Optimal Duration of DAPT with Oral Anticoagulation After PCI?: 1 Month vs. 3 Months

While the benefits of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor are recognized, its primary complication is the occurrence of bleeding events, which negatively impact patient morbidity and mortality. Additionally, about 10% of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are on oral anticoagulant therapy, which significantly increases the risk of bleeding when

Monotherapy with P2Y12 in Complex Interventions: Less and Less Risky

 Monotherapy in patients with complex angioplasty: meta-analysis of 5 randomized studies.  Even though prolonged dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) might reduce the risk of important ischemic complications, this reduction will come at the expense of a significant increase of bleeding risk, which makes us reassess the cost benefit ratio of this decision. This is also why

Aspirina o clopidogrel post TAVI: Guías y estudios llenos de contradicciones

Is Clopidogrel Monotherapy Safe After a Month of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy in Diabetic Patients?

Currently, many randomized studies have suggested that short-term dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) followed by monotherapy reduces bleeding without increasing major cardiovascular events after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A meta-analysis of six randomized studies has shown this benefit using ticagrelor monotherapy after short DAPT. However, there is no data on the results of clopidogrel monotherapy. Researchers

P2Y12 Inhibitor Monotherapy vs Aspirin: Results of a Network Meta-Analysis

Revascularization and antiaggregation guidelines have typically recommended aspirin (AAS) as first choice for secondary prevention of cardiovascular events after DES stenting. However, these past few years this strategy has been called into question, seeing as studies have shown the superiority of P2Y12 inhibitor monotherapy (IP2Y12) with clopidogrel or ticagrelor. There is little data comparing both

An Abbreviated Dual Antiplatelet Regimen Is Also Safe in Patients at High Risk for Bleeding Undergoing Complex Angioplasty

The MASTER DAPT study analyzed the results of an abbreviated (mean 34 days) vs. conventional dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in 4579 patients treated with angioplasty and a biodegradable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent. This recent publication on the same study analyzed the evolution within the same strategies of the subgroup of patients with complex angioplasty and compared

High Risk of Bleeding after PCI: More Evidence for Short DAPT

Dual antiaggregation therapy (DAPT) with ASA and P2Y12 during 6 to 12 months is the indicated strategy after DES stenting to reduce ischemic events. However, in patients with elevated risk of bleeding (HBR) guideline and expert recommendations is 1-6 months, since there is plenty of evidence in favor, except for a randomized study, the MASTER

Two Safe Stents at Two Years in High Bleeding Risk

There is a consistent number of patients presenting high risk of bleeding. In this context, receiving dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) for 12 months would not be advisable. Even though the European and American guidelines recommend 1 to 6 months for chronic and acute syndromes in this group, these are often complex PCI cases, which makes

¿Llegó el momento de replantear a la aspirina como la elección en prevención secundaria de MACE?

Should Aspirin Be the Standard of Secondary Prevention of MACE?

Much has been published recently on short term dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) both in acute (ACS) and chronic coronary syndrome (CCS) as well as safety of P2Y12 inhibitor monotherapy. When discussing secondary prevention in patients with established coronary artery disease, aspirin (ASA) has been the preferred drug for the prevention of new atherothrombotic events.  This

WOEST 2 | Dual Versus Triple Antithrombotic Scheme in the Real World.

The WOEST study found a significant reduction in bleeding complications post PCI with oral anticoagulation indication (OAC) when treating patients with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) vs. the triple antithrombotic scheme. Several randomized studies have shown these results. At present, the guidelines recommend using the triple antithrombotic scheme in patients according to ischemic and bleeding risk. 

Ticagrelor Monotherapy after 3 Months: Is the Current Strategy Worth Changing?

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after PCI with DES has shown noticeable reduction of thrombotic events, especially in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). However, this therapy encompasses increased bleeding, especially in elderly patients increasingly undergoing percutaneous intervention. Even though most bleeding events might not be fatal (many of them are mostly digestive) they do involve higher hospitalization
