February Webinar: Vascular Protection in Patients with CAD/PAD
Don’t miss our upcoming webinar on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 @ 4:00 PM ET.
Patients with peripheral artery disease are at risk for major cardiovascular and limb events. Recently, two trials have demonstrated a reduction in major cardiac and limb events when patients with PAD are given aspirin plus rivaroxaban. This webinar will review the evidence behind the use of a “dual pathway inhibition” strategy and introduce a new ACE Rapid Resource.
