ESC 2019 | ISAR-REACT 5 | Which Is Better in ACS, Prasugrel or Ticagrelor?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. The benefit of dual antiplatelet therapy in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) has been proven long ago, and both prasugrel and ticagrelor have offered best results than clopidogrel. However, nowadays, it is unclear which of them is superior in the long term, taking into account the fact that one starts to

What is the best antiplatelet in PCI to vein grafts?

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. PCI to saphenous vein grafts is one the greatest challenges these days because, as opposed to native arteries, they present important thrombolytic material, diffuse and long lesions, and abundant macrophage and inflammatory cells, which makes the procedure more complex. At present, we have not yet agreed on the best antiplatelet


Elderly Patients with ACS: Clopidogrel or Reduced-Dose Prasugrel?

Elderly patients are at elevated risk of both ischemic and bleeding complications after an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and display higher platelet reactivity under clopidogrel when compared to younger patients. A 5-mg dose of prasugrel would provide more predictable platelet inhibition than clopidogrel in elderly populations, without the risk of bleeding entailed by the full

¿Cuál es la mejor antiagregación en la angioplastia primaria a 12 meses?

What Is the Best Antiplatelet Therapy in Primary Angioplasty at 12 Months?

Both prasugrel and ticagrelor showed superiority in terms of efficacy, reducing the number of major cardiovascular events at the expense of increased bleeding. This is an affordable cost, and the net clinical benefit supports these new antiplatelet therapies. The one-year follow-up of the PRAGUE-18 study focused on a comparison of efficacy and safety between prasugrel

El costo clínico y el costo económico compiten en la desescalada de antiagregantes

Clinical and Economic Costs Compete in the De-Escalation of Antiplatelet Therapy

Patients undergoing primary angioplasty for ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction have similar clinical outcomes at 1 year regardless of whether they are treated with ticagrelor or prasugrel, according the PRAGUE-18 study. This new substudy adds an interesting detail: patients who switched from prasugrel and ticagrelor to clopidogrel, citing economic reasons for the “de-escalation” of therapy, were

Cambio de doble antiagregación ¿Cuándo y cómo realizarlo?

When and How to Switch Dual Antiplatelet Therapies

Dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and a P2Y12 inhibitor is the treatment of choice for patients with acute coronary syndrome who undergo coronary angioplasty. Different oral P2Y12 inhibitors (clopidogrel, prasugrel, ticagrelor) present different characteristics as regards efficacy, risk for bleeding, cost, and timing of administration. In this sense, physicians frequently switch among drugs according to

Post DES Dual Antiplatelet Therapy Still under Debate

TOPIC: Benefits of Switching Dual Antiplatelet Therapy in Patients with ACS

Newer P2Y12 blockers are the front-line treatment and dual antiplatelet therapy is indicated for 1 year after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Both prasugrel and ticagrelor offer more ischemic benefit than clopidogrel during the initial phase; however, bleeding complications could increase in the long term. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy

Ticagrelor vs. Prasugel: Similar Safety and Efficacy in Primary Angioplasty

No randomized head-to-head study comparing the efficacy and safety of ticagrelor and prasugrel has been carried out in the last 7 years since these newer P2Y12 inhibitors first showed a higher efficacy relative to clopidogrel.   This study was designed to compare the efficacy and safety of prasugrel and ticagrelor in patients with acute myocardial infarction

Prasugrel vs. Ticagrelor in Diabetics with Heart Disease

Diabetic patients are increased risk of thrombotic events, which is why an effective antiplatelet therapy is crucial for these patients. Both prasugrel and ticagrelor have shown to reduce thrombotic complications further than clopidogrel.   Subgroup analyzes of the most important studies testing prasugrel and ticagrelor vs. clopidogrel have shown that diabetic patients receiving the new

Prasugrel vs. Ticagrelor in Primary Angioplasty

The choice of prasugrel or ticagrelor for patients with acute myocardial infarction undergoing primary angioplasty makes no difference, at least in the short term.   This study was terminated prematurely and thus lost statistical power, which means that any interpretation of the lack of difference between the two antiplatelet drugs must take into account such
