Dual antiplatelet therapy in coronary artery disease: a case-based approach.
Cleve Clin J Med. 2009 Nov;76(11):663-70
Authors: Raymond C, Menon V
Current guidelines support dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel (Plavix) in a number of clinical scenarios, ie, in ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction (MI), non-ST-elevation MI, and percutaneous coronary intervention. The guidelines are based on strong evidence from several large randomized clinical trials over the last 10 years. The authors present several cases to show how to put this evidence into day-to-day clinical practice.
