stop clopidogrel 7 days prior to surgery, PLT transfusion, proceed to surgery.This is correct but in an emergency condition and also is based on American recommendation.
In elective condition both are recommending option a.Defer the surgery for 12 months continue clopidogrel and then stop it 2 weeks prior the surgery.
