background

Background

In patients undergoing coronary stenting, long-term dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel reduces atherothrombotic events but also increases the risk of bleeding. The potential for developing bleeding complications is further enhanced in patients also requiring oral anticoagulant treatment (“triple therapy”).

slide3

Aim

To assess long-term outcomes associated with the use of triple-therapy in patients undergoing coronary stenting and evaluate how these may be affected by targeting international normalized ratio (INR) values to the lower therapeutic range.

slide4

Methods

  • We analyzed 102 consecutive patients undergoing coronary stenting treated with dual antiplatelet therapy also requiring oral anticoagulation. The target international normalized ratio (INR) value was 2-2.5
  • An age and sex-matched control group (n=102) with similar disease presentation and procedure type was selected from the study period
  • 18 months Follow-up:
  • TIMI major and minor bleedings
  • MACE: death, myocardial infarction, stent thrombosis, stroke and target vessel revascularization

Specificity

  • The optimal ROC-defined INR value cut point between sensitivity and specificity for all bleeding was 2.6.
  • This cut-off value had a specificity of 89%, a sensitivity of 66%, a negative predicted value of 95%, and a positive predictive value of 44%.

In the triple therapy group, use of GPIIb/IIIa blocker (OR 2.7, P = 0.03), value of INR > 2.6 (OR 9.8, P = 0.0007), female gender (OR 2.0, P = 0.04), and smoking (OR 2.9, P = 0.02), were significant predictors of any bleeding at 18 months in univariate analyses

  • Multivariable analysis showed that only an INR > 2.6 predicted overall bleeding (OR 19.2, 95% CI 4.3-44.6; P=0.0003).
conclusions
In high risk patients implanted with coronary stent,

long term triple therapy seems to be safe and effective.

Careful monitoring and low target of INR must be provided in these patients
