Table 2.

The DAPT score calculator*: With a score of less than 2, the risk of bleeding (NNH = 64) outweighs the risk of ischemic events (NNT=153); therefore, use DAPT for 12 mo then stop. With a score of 2 or more, the risk of ischemic events (NNT = 34) outweighs the risk of bleeding (NNH = 272); therefore, extending DAPT beyond 12 mo can be considered.
