Should you switch the DAPT agent one month after ACS?
Should you switch the DAPT agent one month after ACS? A randomized controlled trial says “Yes,” but current guidelines say “No.” PRACTICE CHANGER: Switch to clopidogrel from one of the newer P2Y12 blockers 1 month after an acute coronary vent, while continuing aspirin, to decrease bleeding events without increasing the risk of ischemic events. STRENGTH OF RECOMMENDATION B: Based on a single randomized controlled trial (RCT).
