Closing the Rural Health Gap: Media Update from RWJF and Partners on Rural Health Disparities

nrhd-logo2017.png

Rural counties continue to rank lowest among counties across the U.S., in terms of health outcomes. A group of national organizations including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National 4-H Council are leading the way to close the rural health gap.

Study Evaluates Safety of Three-Month Versus Standard Twelve-Month Dual Antiplatelet Therapy in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome Treated with a Drug-Eluting Stent

Results from the prospective, multicenter, randomized investigator-initiated REDUCE trial were reported today at the 29th annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium. Sponsored by the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF), TCT is the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine.

Study Finds Six Months of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy May be Non-Inferior to Twelve Months in STEMI Patients Receiving Drug-Eluting Stents

The first trial to evaluate the safety of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) for less than 12 months in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) found six months of DAPT was non-inferior to 12 months of DAPT among patients treated with second-generation drug-eluting stents (DES).

Synergy Stent with Shorter DAPT Is Superior to a Bare-Metal Stent in Elderly Patients

Elderly patients undergoing PCI often receive bare-metal stents (BMS) instead of drug-eluting stents (DES) to shorten the duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) and reduce bleeding risk. However, results from the SENIOR trial found that compared with BMS, shorter DAPT combined with the Synergy bioabsorbable polymer DES leads to less adverse events without increasing bleeding risk.
