Edited via one of many world's major interventional cardiologists and educators, this new publication is created with an eye fixed on giving the reader a fantastic, sensible and clinically-focused knowing of this significant classification of gear, from easy technology to a clear-headed dialogue of advanced issues similar to mix cures, drug-drug interactions, and platelet resistance.

This vital new book:

  • Begins with a concise yet thorough dialogue of platelet biology and pathophysiology in order that readers know the way those cures paintings and why they could additionally produce the sort of diverse diversity of issues, from minor gastrointestinal disappointed, to very likely life-threatening stipulations reminiscent of neutropenia, a severe scarcity of white blood cells.
  • Thoroughly covers platelet functionality trying out, together with new, novel techniques.
  • Clarifies present best-practices in regards to the use of antiplatelet brokers in either power and acute cardiovascular disease
  • Reviews of all kinds of antiplatelet brokers – from aspirin to lately authorized medications – together with symptoms, medical results, and aspect effects/complications

Written via a world who's-who of specialists within the box, Antiplatelet remedy additionally comprises a complete part protecting using antiplatelet medications in PCIs, together with percutaneous valve fix, which makes this article relatively necessary to Interventional Cardiologists.

Another, larger study examined 1055 patients with nonfatal myocardial infarction and 4153 controls in a case–control design and showed that the reduction of cardiovascular events by aspirin was abolished when combined with frequent naNSAIDs (mainly ibuprofen) [23]. Concluding remarks While the central role of COX-1 as key enzyme of platelet TXA2 formation and target of low-dose aspirin is acknowledged since decades, platelet COX-1 remains subject to relevant and innovative research. All other inhibitors of platelet function, including GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors and ADP receptor antagonists, have been developed on the background of antiplatelet therapy with aspirin.
