INTRODUCTION High posttreatment platelet reactivity to clopidogrel (HPPR) is associated with major adverse cardiac events. However, the clinical predictors of HPPR in Asians have not been studied previously. AIMS We sought to determine clinical predictors of HPPR in Koreans. RESULTS We measured platelet reactivity with the VerifyNow P2Y12 assay in 1431 consecutive patients undergoing coronary angiography. We used the cut-off value of greater than 275 P2Y12 Reaction Unit (PRU) to define… CONTINUE READING
