METHODS AND RESULTS Open-trial randomized 1028 patients with stable angina to group A ('non-selective'-clopidogrel 600 mg > 6 h before CAG; n = 513) or group B ('selective'-clopidogrel 600 mg in the cath-lab after CAG, only in case of PCI; n = 515). Combined primary endpoint was death/periprocedural myocardial… CONTINUE READING
