Acute dual antiplatelet therapy for minor ischaemic stroke or transient ischaemic attack

 In Featured, News

Yongjun Wang and colleagues discuss recent evidence for using dual antiplatelet therapy to reduce recurrence of stroke or transient ischaemic attack In summary, DAPT should be started as soon as possible within 24 hours of minor ischaemic stroke or high risk transient ischaemic attack and should be continued up to 21 days. The 21st day is the possible trade-off point to balance treatment effect and bleeding risk. Further studies are needed to evaluate novel and more precise antiplatelet therapy after minor ischaemic stroke and transient ischaemic attack. BMJ 2019;364:l895
