The management of antithrombotic therapy in patients on oral anticoagulation (OAC) for atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention with stent (PCI) is currently addressed by expert consensus documents and official Guidelines. No specific data, nor management suggestions, are available for OAC patients undergoing PCI in whom the indication for OAC is venous thromboembolism (VTE). In this article, the available evidence on VTE patients undergoing PCI, as obtained from studies where patients with various indications for PCI were included, is evaluated, and an algorithm for the management of antithrombotic therapy in this unique population is proposed.
