Featured article: Extended use of dual antiplatelet therapy among older adults with acute coronary syndromes and associated variables

New Content ItemCurrent guidelines recommend extending the use of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) beyond 1 year in patients with an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and a high risk of ischaemia and low risk of bleeding. No data exist about the implementation of this strategy in older adults from routine clinical practice. The aim of this cohort study is to assess the proportion of potential candidates ≥ 65 years who received extended DAPT (i.e., for more than 1 year) and identify the variables associated with extended treatment.
