The video talks about the early restenosis after primary PCI by Dr. Viveka Kumar, Senior Director - Cath Lab, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket. The patient may not have restenosis but can have early stent thrombosis. Many a times, patients stop their dual antiplatelets which can be a reason for early restenosis. He will explain that the dual antiplatelets are mandatory given to these patients for a year. He will further explain that preferably the newer antiplatelets are given to avoid the risk of stent thrombosis.
