OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to identify differences in shear-induced platelet aggregation (SIPA) between patients who did or did not experience subacute stent thrombosis (SAT). BACKGROUND Despite dual antiplatelet therapy, SAT after coronary stenting occurs in approximately 1% of patients. There is no accepted platelet function test to identify patients at risk. METHODS We analyzed platelet aggregation in 10 patients who had experienced SAT (cases), 22 stented patients without SAT… CONTINUE READING
