Is Shockwave appropriate for patients being treated on Ticagrelor

A patient attended a shockwave whilst on a does of Ticagrelor as an anticoagulant medication as an addition to Asprin. It is not a medication we are aware of and unsure of its action. We would apprectiate any advice regardign Ticagrelor and whether shockwave is still appropriate?

Ih Georg As transient ecchymosis and/or petechiae, certainly due to the physical impact of shock waves, may be reportede in some studies, using anticoagulant medication and ESWT simultaneously, it seems to me to be inappropriate. In my general practice I consider it as contraindication. Hope this helps.
