Telephone Contact to Improve Adherence to Dual Antiplatelet Therapy After Drug-Eluting Stent Implantation by the EASY-IMPACT Investigators

Study Questions:

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT) is frequently discontinued after DES implantation, increasing the risk of stent thrombosis and death. Can simple telephone contact made by nurses improve adherence to and persistence of DAT after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation?
