To the Editor The Different Antiplatelet Therapy Strategy After Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery (DACAB) trial provides needed insight into the utility of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with ticagrelor as the second agent in patients undergoing CABG.1 The current American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology (AHA/ACC) guideline is based on limited evidence and restricted to resumption of DAPT in patients who present with acute coronary syndrome. Consequently, intersurgeon variability in DAPT use is high with a relatively low rate of DAPT use.2
