I have a pt that needs 13 teeth out with alveoloplasty. He is currently on dual anti-platelet therapy with Brilanta and aspirin for a stent placement post-MI. Does anyone have experience with extractions on pts taking Brilanta? I have taken out tons of teeth on pts taking coumadin (checking INR before the procedure) and plavix/aspirin. Are plavix and brilanta pretty similar since they are both platelet inhibitors? I’ll check with his cardiologist, but my instinct is to leave him on both meds. Thoughts?
