BACKGROUND The influence of diabetes mellitus (DM) on platelet reactivity (PR) in prasugrel or ticagrelor treated patients is not well studied. METHODS In an observational study involving 777 patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention treated by either prasugrel 10 mg od (n = 315) or ticagrelor 90 mg bid (n = 462),(More)
UNLABELLED Essentials The comparative efficacy and safety of antiplatelet agents in 'real life' is not clear. We recruited acute coronary syndrome patients receiving percutaneous coronary intervention. At 1-year follow-up, prasugrel offers better anti-ischemic protection than clopidogrel. Prasugrel and ticagrelor are accompanied by more frequent bleeding(More)
Ticagrelor loading dose (LD) increases adenosine plasma levels, which might interfere with fractional flow reserve (FFR) assessment because the latter is based on adenosine-induced hyperemia. In a prospective study, consecutive patients who underwent coronary angiography with at least 1 de novo stenosis >50% and <90% in severity amenable to intervention(More)
