For every 1000 patients who discontinued aspirin there were 4 nonfatal MIs. This study has clearly got my patients thinking. I had a phone call from a man with angina this morning who has been asked to stop his aspirin for 2 weeks by my plastic surgical colleague as a resection of a probable squamous cell tumor of the left pinna. I have said that he should stop as the risk of surgical bleeding is felt to be high . Would anyone else have said differently?
