Can I safely stop Deplatt (medicine) prior to cataract surgery?
I am a 77 year old male from India. I am a cardiac patient since 1984.
1) CAD-SVD: Mid RCA CTO (CAG on 23.03.04 &21;.07.09) Mild LV dysfunction, EF 35-40% NSR
2) Recurrent SMVT, S/P AICD
3) Systemic hypertension
5) Mild CRF
6) BPH with LUTS
Due to a vision problem, I am advised to do a cataract surgery for which I was asked to stop tablet Deplatt for 5 days prior to surgery. Is it safe to stop Deplatt tablet? Will there be any side effect if I do so? Need your opinion before preparing for the surgery. Thanking you.
