A potential new option for patients with acute coronary syndromes receiving coronary intervention has emerged following a report on the comparison of prasugrel, a new anti-platelet agent, with clopidogrel. Elliott Antman from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston gave the American Heart Association his findings and recommendations about when and in which patients prasugrel might be favored. Gordon Tomaselli discussed the findings with Sarah Maxwell.
