  Purpose

Personalized treatment approaches and antiplatelet drug choice have been proposed to optimize safety of coronary stenting by reducing heart attacks and repeat interventions while simultaneously minimizing adverse bleeding events. This study compares the efficacy of two laboratory guided treatment algorithms to personalize antiplatelet medication choice after coronary stenting

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Thrombelastography (TEG) MA [ Time Frame: 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Persistence of high tensile clot strength measured by TEG 16-24 hours after reloading of either clopidogrel or prasugrel


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Ischemic events [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Death, recurrent myocardial infarction, recurrent unstable angina, repeat coronary intervention

  • Bleeding events [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: August 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
