CHICAGO -- Ticagrelor (Brilinta) alone failed to reduce rates of both major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) and major bleeding compared with aspirin in patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), the phase III TiCAB trial found. Consider stopping ticagrelor 5-7 days before CABG in patients with low risk. Do not use this drug in patients with active pathological bleeding or a history of intracranial hemorrhage. Ticagrelor reduced mortality by 51% in patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in the PLATO study, but its effect on graft patency is unknown. Patients ... points in 25 pre-specified subgroups and eight post-hoc subgroups. Ticagrelor in patients with stable coronary disease and diabetes. It is increasingly used as a first line therapy in ACS. The optimal timing of discontinuation of ticagrelor prior to coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of ticagrelor + aspirin or ticagrelor alone vs aspirin alone on saphenous vein graft patency 1 year after CABG. Ticagrelor, a more potent P2Y12 inhibitor, has been shown to reduce major adverse cardiac events (MACE) in acute coronary syndromes (ACS). For patients at intermediate or higher risk, discuss continuing ticagrelor or clopidogrel before CABG with the cardiac surgeon. ; However, the use of BIMA is associated with increased risk of infection and should be considered only when the benefit outweighs … Importance: The effect of ticagrelor with or without aspirin on saphenous vein graft patency in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is unknown. Already Have An Account? Objective: To compare the effect of ticagrelor + aspirin or ticagrelor alone vs aspirin alone on saphenous vein graft patency 1 year after CABG. Background Ticagrelor was shown to reduce mortality in patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), but its effect on graft patency is unknown. Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Print Email × You must be a member to content. Patients scheduled for CABG were randomized in a 1:1:1 fashion to either aspirin 100 mg daily (n = 166), ticagrelor 90 mg BID (n = 166), or DAPT (n = 168). However, more potent P2Y12 inhibition has been associated with increased bleeding. In the ticagrelor group, patients received a loading dose of 180 mg of ticagrelor, then 90 mg twice a day. In the ONSET/OFFSET study of patients with stable coronary artery disease, ticagrelor’s effects dissipated within 48–120 hours of discontinuation. In all, 1,261 patients underwent CABG and were receiving study drug treatment <7 … Ticagrelor is recommended for the treatment of acute coronary syndromes and ESC guidelines recommend the use of ticagrelor in patients undergoing CABG for ACS. An analysis was ... and patients undergoing CABG. Steg PG, Bhatt DL, Simon T, et al; for the THEMIS Steering Committee and Investigators. Ticagrelor vs Aspirin in Patients After CABG European Heart Journal . There are limited data on the impact of ticagrelor monotherapy among these patients. Introduction Ticagrelor is a more potent platelet inhibitor than clopidogrel but also has a more rapid offset of inhibitory effect. In patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with ticagrelor or clopidogrel is superior to aspirin alone for preventing saphenous vein graft failure, according to a meta-analysis in The BMJ.. By Amy Orciari Herman. Background: Ticagrelor was shown to reduce mortality in patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), but its effect on graft patency is unknown. Session Factors affecting prognosis of CABG patients . 2019;381(14):1309-1320. In all, 1,261 patients underwent CABG and were receiving study drug treatment 7 days before surgery. The researchers found that the rates of saphenous vein graft patency were 88.7, 82.8, and 76.5%, respectively, with ticagrelor + aspirin, ticagrelor alone, and aspirin alone at one year post-CABG. The effect of adding ticagrelor to standard aspirin on saphenous vein graft patency in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting Methods: We performed a prospective, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, comparing ticagrelor 90 mg twice daily versus placebo for 3 months added to aspirin 81 mg/day, following isolated CABG. Do not use Ticagrelor in patients with active pathological bleeding or a history of intracranial hemorrhage (4.1, 4.2). In the subset of patients who underwent coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) after randomization and received study drug within 7 days of surgery (n = 1,261), ticagrelor was associated with a reduction in total and CV mortality . Do not start Ticagrelor in patients undergoing urgent coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) (5.1, 6.1). In the POPular CABG study we investigate if the addition of ticagrelor, a drug that inhibits blood platelets from clotting, to treatment with aspirin will reduce the rate of saphenous vein graft occlusion as assessed with coronary computed tomography angiography at 1 year after coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The ACC/AHA recommends CABG over PCI for improved survival in patients with comorbid DM and multivessel CAD, particularly with use of LIMA GRAFT (CLASS I). Save Recommend Share . N Engl J Med. In this post hoc analysis of the GLOBAL-LEADERS trial, the treatment effects of the experimental (one … IMPORTANCE: The effect of ticagrelor with or without aspirin on saphenous vein graft patency in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is unknown. Treatment with the P2Y12 inhibitor ticagrelor (Brilinta; AstraZeneca) in combination with aspirin has been widely accepted as useful for preventing ischemic events in patients following an ACS or a recent stent implantation, but data are lacking regarding the optimal antiplatelet therapy regimen following CABG surgery. This may be of particular concern for patients with ACS who require coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG). The results of these six subgroup analyses were generally consistent with the primary analysis. METHODS: In total, 1,899 patients underwent CABG post-randomization. Drug interactions Patients with both diabetes mellitus (DM) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are a subpopulation characterized by ultrahigh ischemic and bleeding risk after percutaneous coronary intervention. In patients undergoing CABG, it was recommended that the study drug be withheld — in the clopidogrel group, for 5 days, and in the ticagrelor group, for 24 to 72 hours. Base the decision on the balance of ischaemic and bleeding risk. Methods In total, 1,899 patients underwent CABG post-randomization. Patients taking ticagrelor should also take low-dose aspirin daily, unless specifically contraindicated. AHA: Post-CABG Ticagrelor No Better Than Aspirin ... All patients had indications for CABG: coronary three vessel disease (roughly 90% of the patients… Methods We performed a prospective, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, comparing ticagrelor 90 mg twice daily versus placebo for 3 months added to aspirin 81 mg/day, following isolated CABG. 2015;372(19):1791-1800. (CABG); coronary artery disease with stenosis of 50% or more in at least ... aspirin (n = 9291). A post-randomization analysis of the Platelet Inhibition and Patient Outcomes (PLATO) trial revealed in ACS patients benefits of ticagrelor compared to clopidogrel, as part of a DAPT strategy together with aspirin. And safety no better with ticagrelor either. If possible, manage bleeding without discontinuing Ticagrelor. Long-term use of ticagrelor in patients with prior myocardial infarction. At this time, aspirin is the mainstay to prevent post-CABG MACE in elective patients. The POPular CABG study evaluated the efficacy and safety of ticagrelor on SVG patency when added to low-dose aspirin in post-CABG patients. Conclusions: Most RCT data for DAPT post CABG is derived from subgroups of ACS patients in DAPT RCTs requiring CABG who resume DAPT post-operatively. -Bleeding risk: This drug, like other antiplatelet agents, can cause significant and sometimes fatal bleeding. In another study planned in 720 patients, ticagrelor plus aspirin is being compared with aspirin alone for reduction of SVG failure assessed by CT angiography at 1 year (NCT02352402). comes of patients treated with CABG during the trial. The analysis comprised 20 randomized trials that compared post-CABG … 5. The protocol recommended ticagrelor/placebo to be withheld for 24 to 72 h and clopidogrel/placebo for 5 days preoperatively.
