Abstract

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by a low platelet count and an increased risk of bleeding. At the same time, ITP patients present an increased risk of thrombosis and atherosclerosis related to the high presence of haemostatic factors and chronic steroid therapy. Although relatively rare, the association of ITP and coronary artery disease represents a complex therapeutic challenge. In particular, no recommendations exist regarding the best management approach. We reviewed the literature making a comparison between coronary artery bypass grafting and percutaneous coronary intervention. © 2011 Published by European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery.
