    Ticagrelor versus clopidogrel in patients undergoing implantation of paclitaxel-eluting stent in the femoropopliteal district: A randomized pilot study using frequency-domain optical coherence tomography

    Objectives Aim of this study was to evaluate different response in platelet reactivity and vessel healing using high-resolution frequency-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) in patients with femoropopliteal artery disease treated with ZILVER PTX drug eluting stents (DES), and randomly assigned to clopidogrel or ticagrelor for 12 months. Background The optimal antithrombotic regimen for long-term management of patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) after revascularization is poorly defined and often extrapolated from trials performed on patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Methods In this single center randomized trial 40 patients with femoropopliteal artery disease treated with ZILVER PTX DES stents, were randomized ...
