Limit Dual Antiplatelet Therapy After a Stroke or TIA to Short-Term Use
More patients will be discharged on a SHORT course of aspirin plus clopidogrel after a minor ischemic stroke or high-risk TIA.
We know to generally use aspirin ALONE to prevent another stroke.
But you'll see growing acceptance of short-term DUAL antiplatelet therapy in these patients. It's already an option in guidelines...based on positive outcomes in Chinese patients using it for 3 weeks.
