A guided de-escalation of P2Y12 inhibitor treatment is considered an alternative treatment strategy in ACS patients undergoing PCI. However, the safety and efficacy of this strategy may differ in diabetic vs non-diabetic patients. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of platelet function testing (PFT)-guided de-escalation of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in ACS patients with and without diabetes mellitus.
