Residual platelet reactivity after aspirin and clopidogrel treatment predicts 2-year major cardiovascular events in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Studies on the prognostic significance of residual platelet reactivity despite the use of dual anti-platelet agents are limited and seldom extend beyond 1year. METHODS This study enrolled 144 patients treated with standard-dose aspirin and clopidogrel and undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Platelet reactivity was measured by… (More)
