The dose of aspirin has been the subject of some debate, but 81-325 mg daily has been shown to be of value. Larger doses have no apparent additional benefit but increase the risk of adverse effects. Aspirin has been shown to reduce the progression of atherosclerosis in a few trials, but this remains unsubstantiated. The role of dipyridamole remains controversial. Several small studies have shown the benefit of giving it in conjunction with aspirin, but it is uncertain if dipyridamole alone is superior to aspirin.

Antiplatelet drugs, such as low dose aspirin or dipyridamole, are used in patients with bioprosthesis in sinus rhythm and in addition to anticoagulants in the high risk patients with mechanical valves. Patients with mechanical valves and those with bioprostheses and associated risk factors require lifelong anticoagulant cover. In patients with a bioprosthetic valve in sinus rhythm anticoagulant cover with warfarin for the first three postoperative months may suffice, followed by low dose aspirin treatment for life.
