Ask the Experts: Anticoagulation/Antiplatelet Med Management – Webinar Episode 3

In this session, our experts covered your questions on:
  • What are the thrombotic implications of stopping ACAP medications?
  • Which procedures can be safely performed without stopping ACAP medications?
  • If stopped, are some ACAP medications more likely to result in thrombotic events?
  • What are the incidence and implications of bleeding complications during procedures, and are these risks increased when ACAP medications are continued?
  • Why should interventionists be more involved in ACAP medication decisions instead of reflexively deferring to the prescribing physician?

Your expert panel for this August 15, 2023 webinar included:

  • Byron J. Schneider, MD, Director of the Interventional Spine and Musculoskeletal Medicine Fellowship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and IPSIS Research Division Chair; and
  • Gene Tekmyster, DO, Assistant Professor of Clinical Orthopaedic Surgery at Keck Hospital of USC, and IPSIS Membership Committee Member.
