The PFA-100 instrument (Platelet Function Analyzer, Dade Behring) has been reported to be superior to the bleeding time (BT) as a screening test of primary hemostasis. However evaluation of this device has been principally limited to selected populations. The study's aim was to determine testing performance in clinical practice, by comparing the PFA-100 to the BT for the identification of von Willebrand disease (VWD) and intrinsic platelet hypofunction. From 1998-2000, PFA-100 closure time (CT… CONTINUE READING
