P2Y12 Receptor Inhibitors in Non-ST-Segment Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome Patients: An Assessment of Current Evidence
Published: 23 February 2021
A roundtable to discuss the current evidence for P2Y12 inhibitor use in NSTE-ACS
The European Heart Association’s guideline update on NSTE-ACS management in 2020 took into consideration several landmark trials, which ultimately changed the level of recommendation on key aspects of antiplatelet use, in both pre- and post-PCI practice. This roundtable, led by Prof Dominick Angiolillo, considers the main updates, the data underpinning the changes and what they mean for real-world practice through expert discourse and case examination.

- Recall the supportive evidence underpinning recommended antiplatelet approaches in individuals with unknown coronary anatomy, including choice of therapy, duration, timing and loading doses
- Compare the design of different clinical trials that have influenced antiplatelet therapy choice in NSTE-ACS patients who proceed to PCI
- Apply trial data and clinical guidelines on the use of antiplatelet therapy in patients undergoing revascularisation to a surrogate patient case
