Ecosprin is a NSAIDS(Non steroidal anti inflammatory drug).Ecosprin in low doses is generally given to prevent blot clots as it thins out the blood in case of post heart attack,following stent placement etc.,

Ecosprin acts by interfering platelet function permanently.The life of platelets is 7 days.Hence the drug should be stoppped 7 days before any procedure,untill fresh platelets are formed.

Hope you got the answer, get well soon,take care
