Peripheral artery disease (PAD) impacts 8.5 million Americans age 40 years or older, often leading to acute limb ischemia, amputation, hospitalization, revascularization, major adverse cardiac events (MACE), and death. In addition to being at very high risk of MACE, more than 10% of PAD patients who had revascularization surgery are hospitalized for major adverse limb events, including acute limb ischemia leading to amputation. Could combination therapy, an antithrombotic regimen comprised of a direct oral anticoagulant and an antiplatelet agent, help prevent limb ischemia and cardiovascular (CV) events in these high-risk patients?
