Abstract

SIGNIFICANT morbidity and mortality is associated with the premature cessation of antiplatelet agents. Data from cardiac surgery suggest that operative blood loss only marginally increases in patients on aspirin and clopidogrel. However, the management of antiplatelet agents in the peri-operative period should be made after multidisciplinary consultation.
