Precatheterization Use of P2Y12 Inhibitors in Non‐ST‐Elevation Myocardial Infarction Patients Undergoing Early Cardiac Catheterization and In‐Hospital Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting: Insights From the National Cardiovascular Data Registry®

Abstract

BACKGROUND Current guidelines recommend early P2Y12 inhibitor administration in non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction, but it is unclear if precatheterization use is associated with longer delays to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) or higher risk of post-CABG bleeding and transfusion. This study examines the patterns and outcomes of… (More)
