Abstract

The optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in patients with ischaemic cardiovascular (CV) disease is still debated. Previous meta-analyses reported conflicting results about prolonged DAPT on mortality and major CV events. Aim of this study was to assess the effects of prolonged vs. no/short-term DAPT on myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, bleeding, and mortality.
