Introduction. The aim of the study was to define the prevalence of bleeding events in patients treated with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT) in comparison with patients receiving only acetylsalicylic acid (ASA).
Methods. Prospective two-centre registry of all first implantations of pacemakers, cardioverter-defibrillators and cardiac resynchronisation therapy units in patients receiving ASA (n=194) or DAT (n=53).
Results. Bleeding complications were detected in 27 (16.2%) patients in the ASA group and in 13 (24.5%) in the DAT group. There was no significant difference in the overall number of complications between the patients receiving ASA or DAT, although there was a trend towards a higher incidence of overall complication rates in the DAT group (p=0.0637). The incidence of major complications (requiring blood transfusion or surgical intervention or prolonging hospital stay) was low (3.6%), and similar in both groups (3.6 and 3.8% respectively, ns). The rate of minor complications (subcutaneous haematomas) was greater in the DAT group (p=0.015).
Conclusions. Treatment with DAT does not increase the risk of major bleeding complications as a result of device implantation; however, minor complications are significantly more frequent. Our results suggest that DAT could be continued in patients undergoing device implantation with a moderate risk of bleeding complications. (Neth Heart J 2010;18:230-5.)
