Protamine-induced platelet aggregation and clotting investigated by ultrasound.

Abstract

Using high-resolution real-time ultrasound to monitor platelet aggregation and plasma clotting, the effect of protamine on platelets was evaluated in a dynamic system of plasma in vitro. Protamine induced platelet aggregation preceding plasma clotting at both low (1.6 s-1) and moderate (22.6 s-1) shear rates. The onset of aggregation and clotting was… (More)
