DAPT Score: A Promising Tool to Guide Duration of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy Post PCI

Yeh et al report a risk score (derived from DAPT trial and validated) to guide clinicians in decisions regarding duration of dual antiplatelet therapy post percutaneous coronary intervention. It provides estimates of thrombotic and bleeding events. Risk stratification:

  • patients with higher thrombotic risk than bleeding: consider for 30 month duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (alternate intervention in DAPT study).
  • patients with lower thrombotic risk than bleeding could be considered for cessation of dual antiplatelet therapy at 12 months.

Investigators from other clinical trials with similar populations aim to test the score on their data. These publications are awaited with interest.

There is an online calculator. There is a link to it on the Risk Scores page.
