abstract

  • Patients with SAT have increased platelet reactivity, compared with patients who do not develop SAT following stenting. However, the augmented platelet reactivity does not appear to differ from patients with AMI unrelated to stenting. This study highlights the need for large prospective studies to determine whether platelet hyperreactivity increases the risk of SAT.
