This timely review examines the use of single and mutiple agents to decrease saphenous graft failure after CABG. These are difficult and expensive studies to perform, requiring repeat imaging after surgery, a procedure patients are often reluctant to undergo. In this analysis, the use of aspirin remains the lynchpin, with ticagrelor and clopidigrel as second agents improving outcomes, albeit at an increased in risk of bleeding.
