Complex cases with gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) risk are very challenging in terms of balancing the risk of ischemia and bleeding after coronary stent deployment, and concerns have been raised about the optimal anti-platelet therapy in such cases. An interventional strategy is also very important to prevent stent thrombosis with short term anti-platelet therapy. However, a dilemma is present with respect to these cases because complex cases always have a higher incidence of restenosis and/or late stent thrombosis without drug-eluting stents which need long-term dual anti-platelet therapy (DAPT). This book discusses the management of patients undergoing complex percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) who may be at risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
