Platelet storage in the spleen in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and congestive splenomegaly.

Abstract

The kinetics of 51Cr-tagged platelets was studied in 10 patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and in 8 patients with congestive splenomegaly. The surgically removed spleens were examined for their platelet content and for their microscopic structure. In idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura the life-span of platelets was reduced, the number of… (More)
