3%). Similar benefits were seen in the subset of patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. The impact this study will have on the use of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors in this clinical situation remains unclear. In another group of studies (n=16 770), patients were given a glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor or placebo immediately before or during planned percutaneous intervention. All showed unequivocal benefit with the active drug. Despite their efficacy, however, some interventionists are reluctant to use glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors in all patients because of their high costs and reserve their use for high risk lesions or when complications occur.
Unfractionated heparin + Thrombin Factor Xa 1:1 Antithrombin III-factor Xa and antithrombin III-thrombin complexes neutralised Low molecular weight heparin Key Antiplatelet drugs Aspirin Aspirin irreversibly inhibits cyclo-oxygenase, preventing the synthesis of prothrombotic thromboxane-A2 during platelet activation. Aspirin given before percutaneous intervention reduces the risk of abrupt arterial closure by 50-75%. It is well tolerated, with a low incidence of serious adverse effects. The standard dose results in full effect within hours, and in patients with established coronary artery disease it is given indefinitely.
