The central role of platelets in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) is well appreciated. The various platelet activation mechanisms finally lead to the expression and activation of surface glycoprotein IIb/ IIIa receptors that mediate platelet aggregation and thrombus formation. Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors… CONTINUE READING
