DAPT De-Escalation Strategy Safe & Effective in Stabilized MI With High Ischemic Risk
22 Dec 2023 • Is the de-escalation strategy of switching from ticagrelor to clopidogrel after 1 month of percutaneous coronary intervention suitable for patients with acute myocardial infarction with high ischemic risk?
- As per study findings published in JAMA Cardiology, the de-escalation strategy was found to be a safe and reasonable option for acute MI patients with high ischemic risk.
- The unguided de-escalation strategy demonstrated consistent outcomes in ischemic & bleeding events compared to ticagrelor-based DAPT.
- There was no significant interaction in outcomes between high & non-high ischemic risk groups.
