Special Issue Description

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) continues to be the main cause of death in the world. With the availability of antithrombotic and anticoagulant regimens that have significantly reduced the rate of ischemic events at the expense of increased bleeding risk, significant advances have been made in the field. In tandem with pharmacological strategies, drug-eluting stent technology has been gradually refined during the percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ACS in recent years. Following the index PCI, the international guidelines have broadened the universal recommendation of the 12-month duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) by adding shorter or longer DAPT regimens based on the higher ischemic and bleeding patient profile. Studies in precision medicine use diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms that are tuned for each patient’s unique risk. With this background, Precision Medicine studies are being promoted in the scientific community to improve risk stratification and optimize ACS patient care.
