DAPT vs. Monotherapy: The Dilemma Remains After Surgery

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

Back to Basics: Ticagrelor Questioned and Clopidogrel in the Limelight

Yet another observational study has come to question the antiaggregation power of ticagrelor when it comes to death or MI reduction, pointing at its higher risk of bleeding vs. clopidogrel.  This new analysis recently published in JAHA includes a large number of patients undergoing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in the clinical practice.  Ticagrelor has been

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

More Evidence for Short Term DAPT: Approaching “the Class Effect”

Patients at high risk of bleeding undergoing coronary angioplasty with Orsiro stent can be considered for a short dual antiplatelet scheme.  These data come from the SMART-CHOICE study recently published in JAHA, adding the Orsiro stent to the list of devices supporting 3-month DAPT.  This study included 2993 patients undergoing coronary angioplasty randomized to 3

Angioplasty in Aspirin-Free Stable Patients with Prasugrel: Innovation Continues

Potent P2Y12 receptor inhibitors, such as prasugrel and ticagrelor, have been tested mainly in a setting of acute coronary syndromes. There is little evidence on stable patients, particularly for prasugrel. Designing a study with that purpose seemed challenging enough, but adding aspirin discontinuation in patients without a particularly high bleeding risk took this research to

Is Loading NSTEMI with DAPT Convenient?

Pretreating non-ST elevation acute myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients with P2Y12 receptor inhibitors is not associated with improved clinical outcomes as it is to increased bleeding. NSTEMI patients are often treated with platelet antiaggregants in the daily clinical practice despite the lack of evidence for its benefits. This Swedish registry prospectively included 64857 patients undergoing NSTEMI

TCT 2020 | Xience in Favor of Short Dual Antiaggregation Therapy with High Bleeding Risk

Following with aspirin alone after a short period of dual antiaggregation therapy (DAPT), 1 to 3 months, did not increase ischemic events in patients receiving a Xience stent while significantly reducing bleeding.  This study endorses the safety of short DAPT with contemporary drug eluting stents (DES) in patients presenting high bleeding risk.  The XIENCE Short

How To De-Escalate Prasugrel After Acute Coronary Syndrome?

Patients who undergo coronary angioplasty after acute coronary syndrome could de-escalate dual antiplatelet therapy with prasugrel to maintain the protection against ischemic events while lowering their hemorrhagic risk. The HOST-REDUCE-POLYTECH-ACS study (recently published in The Lancet) included 2338 patients who underwent coronary angioplasty in a setting of acute coronary syndrome. Patients were randomized to a year-long
