BACKGROUND ADP-specific platelet function assays were shown to predict thrombotic events, and might be helpful to select candidates for more potent antiplatelet therapy. We aimed to determine the efficacy and safety of giving intensified antiplatelet therapy on the basis of platelet reactivity testing for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS Electronic databases were searched to find prospective, randomized trials that reported the clinical impact of using an… CONTINUE READING
