Antiplatelet Management After CABG

A 58-year-old male smoker with no other medical history was referred to his cardiologist for typical angina on exertion over the last 6 months. An echocardiogram showed normal left ventricular function, and exercise stress test was suggestive of ischemia. Invasive coronary angiography then revealed three-vessel coronary artery disease for which he underwent successful off-pump coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG).

What is your recommendation regarding postoperative antiplatelet therapy in this patient?
