Anti-Platelet Medicine – ticagrelor (Brilinta®) (Fraser Health) [English] Permalink Public

Ticagrelor (say ‘tye-ka-grel-or’) is given to people who have had a heart attack. After a heart attack, some people have stents placed into arteries that supply blood to the heart (coronary arteries). A stent is a small tube of reinforced wire that helps keep the blocked artery open. Ticagrelor helps lower your chance of having another heart attack and helps prevent blood clots inside stents.
