Marked thrombocytopenia should raise the suspicion of the development of DIC.

Recommendations Regarding Preoperative Aspirin and Clopidogrel Use If preoperative PCI is considered, any potential benefit must be balanced against the requirements for a full course of aggressive antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel. Premature discontinuation of antiplatelet therapy carries a substantial risk of stent thrombosis, MI, and death, a risk that may be exacerbated by surgery. 20 This advisory stresses the importance of 12 months of dual antiplatelet therapy after placement of a DES and education of the patient and health care providers about hazards of premature antiplatelet therapy discontinuation.

Many different factor VIII preparations can be given, but the half-life of factor VIII is 8 to 12 hours and administration must be on a steady-state basis.
