This observational retrospective study assessed the antiplatelet response and clinical events after clopidogrel treatment in patients who underwent percutaneous neurointervention, related to CYP2C19 metabolizer status (normal (NM), intermediate/poor (IM-PM), and ultrarapid (UM); inferred from *2, *3, and *17 allele determination). From 123 patients, IM-PM had a higher aggregation value (201.1 vs. 137.6 NM, 149.4 UM, P < 0.05) and lower response rate (37.5% vs. 69.8% NM, 61.1% UM), along with higher treatment change rate (25% vs. 5.7% NM, 10.5% UM). The highest ischemic events incidence occurred in NM (11.3% vs. 6.3% IM, 10.5% UM) and hemorrhagic events in UM (13.2% vs. 0% IM and 3.8% NM). No differences were found regarding ischemic event onset time, while hemorrhagic event frequency in UM was higher with shorter onset time (P = 0.047). CYP2C19 no-function and increased function alleles defined the clopidogrel response. UM patients had increased bleeding risk. Therapeutic recommendations should include dose reduction or treatment change in UM.
