VIDEO: Early Discontinuation of DAPT in High Bleeding Risk Patients With the Synergy Stent

Ajay J. Kirtane, M.D., associate professor of medicine at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and director of the cardiac catheterization laboratories at NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Hospital, shares the findings of the late-breaking EVOLVE Short DAPT study presented as a late-breaking trial at the 2019 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting. It evaluated the safety of early dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) discontinuation in patients with high bleeding risk treated with the a Boston Scientific Synergy bioabsorbable polymer coated drug-eluting stent (DES).

With the advancement of new DES technologies using thinner struts and new types of drug-carrier polymer techniques, the risk of late-stennt thrombosis has been greatly reduced, meaning there is less need for long-term DAPT. For patients who are at high risk for bleeding, who have ulcers or other types of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, or those going into surgery, it would be beneficial to reduce the time period for DAPT, and several late-breaking trials examined this at TCT 2019.
 

Here are the other late-breaking DAPT studies:
