"Sir it's better you consult a cardiologist as there are alternatives to aspirin that can be stopped 24 hours prior... I feel stopping aspirin is still beneficial and benefits outweigh the risks even in severe CAD.....some however say you dont even need to stop it in ANY surgery.... Please remember by loads of adrenaline also you are straining the heart"
