Abstract

Introduction: Clopidogrel treatment is one of the standard treatments in terms of reducing mortality and morbidity in patients with cerebrovascular disease diagnosed with large artery atherosclerosis. However, resistance to clopidogrel treatment is a significant problem today. In this study, we aimed to retrospectively investigate clopidogrel resistance (CR) and related factors in patients with detected large artery atherosclerosis who were evaluated for cerebrovascular disease.
