Atleast 1 year: In order for struts of stent to be fully endothelialised and before one can even consider altering dual amtiplatelet therapy, a full 12 months ought to pass.

Data suggests outcome curves continue to diverge, so benefit upto 18 months post DES for dapt. ...Read more

An invasive test requiring a cardiac catheterization can use an ivus (intravascular ultrasound) to examine the stent by ultrasound. Paying attention to symptoms that occur can also give indication of restenosis. ...Read more
