Abstract:
Objectives: Analyze trends in prescribing extended dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and clopidogrel between men and women patients at El Rio community health center. Methods: Patients at a community health center who were on DAPT for longer than one year were identified through retrospective chart review. Demographic and descriptive data were recorded, including patient age, gender, indication for therapy, and type of prescriber. Based on prescribing guidelines, acute coronary syndrome (ACS) with bare-metal stent or drug-eluting stent, and drug-eluting stent without ACS were considered to be appropriate indications of extended DAPT. All other indications were considered inappropriate. Results: Data was collected for 27 men (mean age = 68; SD = 9.82; 70.4% hispanic or latino) and 31 women (mean age = 70; SD = 10.49; 83.9% hispanic or latino). Dual antiplatelet therapy was appropriately prescribed for 17 men and 20 women (63% and 64.5%, p=0.08). Conclusions: Overall, the difference in adherence to prescribing guidelines for men and women was not significant.
