Dr. P P Mohanan. Director and head of the Department of Cardiology, Westfort Hospital, Thrissur, Kerala. spoke to Hiral Bhatt t at STEMI India 2018, Lucknow. This is what he said:


' Newer molecules or new oral anticoagulants have helped in treating STEMI. We have been using the dual antiplatelet drugs, which involve the aspirin and clopidogrel.'


'If one uses an intravenous preparation of aspirin in the dose of 250 to 500 mg, it may be better than the conventional oral dose of aspirin.'


  • " Antiplatelet Drugs: Helps In Treating STEMI Orally "

'There are Ticagrelor & Prasugrel as well but systemic analysis shows that maybe Ticagrelor is a better drug than Prasugrel in STEMI management.'


'We have been using Heparin for the last many years. Heparin is efficient and is commonly used worldwide during STEMI treatment.'


  • " Ticagrelor, An Antiplatelet Drug Has Reduced Death Rate Considerably "

'There is a drug like fondaparinux which we use but not in the Cath lab for the Fondaparinux has its value in STEMI patients who undergo fibrinolytic treatment.'


'Right now in the Cath Lab, in STEMI management, the principal anticoagulant used is Heparin.'


  • " Anticoagulants Also Help In Curing STEMI. Heparin Is The Most Used Drug "
