Managing blood thinning in coronary disease

Dr Malik says: New data from the ESC Meeting this year 2017 on managing blood thinning in coronary disease

Balance the risk of the stents clogging if the blood is too thick vs bleeding if the blood is too thin.

This trial REDUAL  would suggest dabigatran and clopidogrel produce a good balance if you have AF and need stents.

This summary gives a good graphic of the complex choices the physician and patient can make together.
