OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to assess the risk associated with double antiplatelet therapy (DAT) discontinuation, and specifically, temporary discontinuation, during the first year after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. BACKGROUND Doubts remain about the risk of temporary DAT discontinuation within 1 year after DES implantation. METHODS(More)
Cardiac allograft vasculopathy (CAV) currently represents one of the most important causes of long-term morbidity and mortality in the heart transplant population. In well-designed studies with de novo patients, the use of proliferation signal inhibitors (PSIs; everolimus and sirolimus) has been shown to significantly prevent the intimal growth of graft(More)
