Description: This comprehensive update relates recent developments regarding platelets and their role in hematological and cardiovascular diseases. Purpose: The intention was to bring together a book on platelet function, including synthesis, activation, diagnostics, and therapeutic options for various hematological and cardiovascular disorders relating to structural and functional disorders of platelets.

Platelets are discoid, anucleate cells released by megakaryocytes into the bloodstream where they play a major role in hemostasis, development of atherosclerosis, and pathogenesis of atherothrombosis. 1,2 Platelets retain megakaryocyte-derived messenger RNAs (mRNAs) and translational machinery for protein biosynthesis.

Prior clinical studies demonstrated an association between platelet activity Cited by: Platelet disorders are suspected in patients with petechiae and mucosal bleeding. A CBC with platelet count, coagulation studies, and a peripheral blood smear are obtained.

Excessive platelets and thrombocytopenia are diagnosed based on the platelet count; coagulation studies are normal unless there is a simultaneous coagulopathy.

This book provides a comprehensive survey of the importance of blood platelets for coronary heart diseases.

It gives both research workers and clinicians an insight into the function of thrombocytes and the significance of platelets in the clinical framework of coronary heart diseases in order to create an understanding of the differntiated use of antithrombocytic principles.

leading to a heart attack. Platelet Disorders Platelets may be abnormal either quan-titatively (too many or too few) or qualitatively (the right number but they do not work correctly). The num-ber of platelets is routinely tested as part of the complete blood count (CBC).

Normal counts range from to A decrease in the. INTRODUCTION. As indicators of platelet activation and thrombosis, blood platelet count (PLT) and volume (MPV) are inexpensive, potential biomarkers of cardiovascular health.

Formatted in an organized and easy-to-read outline style to facilitate rapid learning and information. "Platelets in Cardiovascular Disease" provides an in-depth and current coverage of relevant platelet biology and antiplatelet therapy that is in clinical use today and potentially for the future.

The book provides a succinct overview of the critical role of platelets in cardiovascular medicine. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of 4/5(1). Platelets - winner of a Highly Commended BMA Medical Book Award for Internal Medicine - is the definitive current source of state-of-the-art knowledge about platelets and covers the entire field of platelet biology, pathophysiology, and clinical medicine.

Recently there has been a rapid expansion of knowledge in both basic biology and the clinical approach to platelet-related diseases Book Edition: 3. Hematology and Oncology is a book containing the following 37 chapters: Anatomy, Anemia, Bone Marrow Disorders, Cancer, Cardiovascular Medicine, Coagulopathy.

Acquired platelet dysfunction, which is common, may result from aspirin, other NSAIDs, or systemic disorders. (See also Overview of Platelet Disorders.) Acquired platelet dysfunction is suspected and diagnosed when unusual or prolonged bleeding is observed and other possible diagnoses (eg.

Heart Disease. Not only diabetes related cardiovascular disorder but also platelet dysfunction has been reported in other heart diseases.

It has been reported in many cases that patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) have increased risk Cited by: Answer: A. Bleeding and clot formation are two common complications of primary thrombocytopenia.

In this disorder, platelet levels are high (,+) and platelets are often dysfunctional. Because of this clots leading to possible DVT, MI, or CVA may occur as well as possible hemorrhage.

Antiplatelet Effects. Platelet aggregation and dysfunction is a severe characteristic of cardiovascular disease.

In the human body, platelets function to regulate vascular tone [ 6 ]. Increased platelet aggregation and reactivity increases the risk of arterial thrombosis and other cardiovascular diseases [.
