We briefly report for the first time the association between a point of care platelet recovery test and the timing of coronary artery bypass grafting after clopidogrel withdrawal. We observe an association between suggested wait days and platelet recovery unit values that might potentially allow for safe shorter wait times before coronary artery bypass grafting without increased bleeding. Our results represent an observation and should prompt further validation.
