Preoperative interventions 

New and Revised in 2011

Drugs that inhibit the platelet P2Y12 receptor should be discontinued before operative coronary revascularization (either on pump or off pump), if possible. The interval between drug discontinuation and operation varies depending on the drug pharmacodynamics, but may be as short as 3 days for irreversible inhibitors of the P2Y12 platelet receptor.
