Cangrelor injection is used in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to lower the risk of blood clots and heart attack.
A heart attack or stroke may occur when a blood vessel in the heart or brain is blocked by a blood clot. Cangrelor reduces the chance that a harmful blood clot will form by preventing certain cells in the blood from clumping together. This effect of cangrelor may also increase the chance of serious bleeding in some people.
