If vit k helps blood to clout then if you have stents and on plavix (clopidogrel) , aspirin would it causes artery blockage?

Vit K: The pathway of clotting where vit k works is different from the platelet pathway where Plavix (clopidogrel) and Aspirin work. While not disconnected, usually arterial clotting is more affected by the platelet pathway where Plavix (clopidogrel) and Aspirin work.
