The majority of patients who suffer peri-operative thromboembolic complication while undergoing vascular procedures do so despite taking aspirin. This study examined the antiplatelet effect of aspirin during surgery in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Fifty patients undergoing CEA were standardised to 150 mg aspirin daily for > or =2 weeks. Platelet aggregation in response to arachidonic acid (AA) was measured in platelet rich plasma prepared from blood taken prior to, during… CONTINUE READING
