- Among patients with cardiovascular disease, nearly 70% take preventive aspirin.1
- The benefits of aspirin are greater as a patient’s risk of cardiovascular events increases; patients with a lower risk of cardiovascular events derive less of a benefit from aspirin.2
- The effect of aspirin in surgical patients has not yet been investigated, in particular if there is an optimal effect based on operative risk when undergoing cardiac surgery.
To determine the effects of preoperative aspirin on major outcomes after cardiac surgery in patients with low, medium, and high predicted operative mortality as determined by the EuroSCORE risk model.
