Association Between Ischemic and Bleeding Risk Scores and the Use of New P2Y12 Inhibitors in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome
Conclusions New P2Y12 inhibitors were more frequently prescribed among ACS patients with lower CRUSADE bleeding risk. However, an ischemic risk paradox was found, with higher use of these agents in patients with lower ischemic risk based on GRACE risk score estimates. These results underscore the importance of risk stratification to safely deliver optimal therapies. (Source: Revista Espanola de Cardiologia)
