Aggrastat, in combination with heparin, is indicated for the treatment of acute coronary syndrome, including patients who are to be managed medically and those undergoing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty or atherectomy. In this setting, Aggrastat has been shown to decrease the rate of a combined endpoint of death, new myocardial infarction or refractory ischaemia/repeat cardiac procedure. The drug has been studied in a setting that included aspirin and heparin.
