A data review found dual antiplatelet therapy is the mainstay treatment for reducing cardiovascular risks after percutaneous coronary intervention, according to researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, recommended the low-dose aspirin component be continued indefinitely and a P2Y12 inhibitor should be prescribed for 12 months, unless patients are at high risk for bleeding.
Review supports post-PCI use of dual antiplatelet therapy
