Major clinical vascular events and aspirin-resistance status as determined by the PFA-100 method among patients with stable coronary artery disease: a prospective study.

Aspirin inhibits platelet activation and reduces major vascular events in patients with stable coronary artery disease. The extent of platelet inhibition, denoted as aspirin resistance, however, is not always sufficient. A correlation between aspirin resistance as measured by aggregometry and adverse clinical events has been demonstrated. The point-of-care… CONTINUE READING
