Has antithrombotic properties and vasodilates coronary arteries.

Acts by inhibiting the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and the development of stenosis.

When used with aspirin decreases the incidence of progressive stenosis in lower extremity peripheral vascular disease, late stenosis in coronary artery bypass grafts and recurrent strokes.

Can exacerbate exercise-induced myocardial ischemia in patients with stable angina.

The combination of aspirin and dipyridine compared to aspirin alone in patients with cerebrovascular disease is superior in preventing new strokes and other cardiovascular events without an increase in bleeding episodes.
