No CLEARity about antithrombotic around endovascular treatment


Antithrombotic regimes around peripheral vascular interventions are currently mostly based on individual beliefs and some secondary data from studies with different endpoints. The problem is that antithrombotic regimes have several goals to meet; to prevent acute thrombotic complications, to prevent intimal hyperplasia to obtain better TLR, and to achieve secondary risk prevention for vascular disease in general. The latter is scientifically proven in large studies. The use of some sort of antithrombotic treatment is not disputed, but there is no uniformity and no scientific guidelines in peripheral arterial interventions. The CLEAR survey by Christopher Twine et al. is a call to start a large study to solve this problem.
