Spontaneous platelet aggregation in thalassemic children and adolescents

Spontaneous platelet aggregation in thalassemic children and adolescents

Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 23(Suppl. 2): 42-46

Spontaneous platelet aggregation was studied in 51 children and adolescents, comprising 30 nonsplenectomized thalassemic patients, 12 splenectomized thalassemic patients and 9 normal children. Spontaneous platelet aggregation was significantly increased in whole blood and platelet-rich plasma of splenectomized thalassemic patients but not in nonsplenectomized cases.
