Antithrombotic treatment following coronary artery bypass surgery: a network meta-analysis

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:

Primary objective
  • To assess the clinical effectiveness of antithrombotic agents in reducing all-cause mortality after CABG surgery.

Secondary objectives
  • To evaluate the effect of antithrombotic agents on graft patency, cardiovascular morbidity and bleeding after CABG surgery.

  • To present ranking probabilities of antithrombotic agents in relation to all-cause mortality and bleeding.

This is a protocol.
