Abstract

Number of patients requiring intensive antiaggregation therapy in diseases of circulatory system is increasing. Simultaneously many patients are referred to CABG. In the article, based on two case reports, we discuss optimal time frame for performing cardiac surgery, methods to analyze platelet inhibition, and we describe technique of bridging by eptifibatide.
