2017 ESC Focused update on Dual Antiplatelet Therapy (DAPT)
04 Sep 2017
As dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) seems to have been interventionalists’ close companion since the pioneering studies showing its benefits over oral anticoagulants (OAC) some 20 years ago, the myriad of ensuing studies has led to expanding indications, but has also uncovered the inherent risks of DAPT. In the 2017 Focused Update, the hitherto accumulated evidence is eloquently summarized into a set of recommendations that provide guidance on some of the important questions of an interventional cardiologist's everyday practice: which of the currently available P2Y12 inhibitors should be selected, what is the optimal duration of DAPT and how to manage bleeding complications.
