According to a recent study, the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) after cessation of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) was highest in which of the following scenarios?
A prospective observational study, PARIS (patterns of nonadherence to antiplatelet regimens in stented patients), was conducted in 15 centers in the United States and Europe from 2009 to 2010. The purpose of this study was to examine risk of MACE in relation to the context and duration of cessation of DAPT after PCI.
Patients were followed one, six, 12 and 24 months after PCI with stent implantation and discharge on DAPT. This study included more than 5,018 patients, with follow-up maintained for 4,678 patients after two years.
