Summary of "Early versus delayed treatment with ticagrelor on residual thrombus after percutaneous coronary intervention in patients presenting with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome: an optical coherence tomography study."

The level of inhibition of platelet aggregation immediately before percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is known to be related to early periprocedural outcomes. Ticagrelor is a reversible P2Y12 inhibitor that provides faster and more effective platelet inhibition compared to clopidogrel. This study sought to compare the antiplatelet effect on residual thrombus between early vs. delayed administration of ticagrelor following PCI in patients presenting with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (NSTE-ACS).

Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.

An anabolic steroid that has been used in the treatment of male HYPOGONADISM, delayed puberty in males, and in the treatment of breast neoplasms in women.

The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.

The volume of air remaining in the LUNGS at the end of a normal, quiet expiration. It is the sum of the RESIDUAL VOLUME and the EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME. Common abbreviation is FRC.

An acute or prolonged illness usually considered to be life-threatening or with the threat of serious residual disability. Treatment may be radical and is frequently costly.
