Ticagrelor and ASA vs. ASA Only After Isolated Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndrome

Brief description of study

The study is a Randomised Registry-based Clinical Trial (RRCT) to assess whether dual antiplatelet therapy with ticagrelor and ASA compared to ASA alone improves outcome after isolated CABG in patients with acute coronary syndrome.

Detailed Study Description

The trial is a 1:1 randomized, interventional, multi-national, multi-center, safety/efficacy, parallel assignment, open-label treatment study and will use the RRCT methodology. A RRCT study utilizes existing health care registry platforms to conduct a pragmatic prospective randomized trial.

After the CABG, eligible patients that have consented to the study, will be randomized to either treatment arms. In the intervention arm, patients will be treated with ticagrelor 90 mg twice daily and ASA 75-100 mg daily for 12 months and patients in the control arm will get ASA only (75-160 mg daily according to local guidelines) during the same time period.

The patients will be followed by telephone interviews at 30 days and 365 days after inclusion. After the treatment period patients will be followed during an observation period by collection of outcome data from registries or medical records, 24, 36, 60 and 120 months after inclusion of the patient. No other data but the registry data or data from medical records will be collected.
