ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the medical research conducted by Gumina and colleagues in the U.S. They note that the group performed an interesting retrospective assessment of the value of an intravenous platelet glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor blocker in addition to dual oral antiplatelet therapy in patients undertaking nonemergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) right after diagnostic coronary angiography. They add that such research is significant since it addresses an important issue.
