Platelets have been implicated in the pathogenesis of liver damage after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Early graft dysfunction is frequently caused by reperfusion injury subsequent to cold ischemia (IRI). Therefore, we investigated activation of the pivotal haemostatic cells, platelets and monocytes…
The views on the role of platelets in physiology and in pathogenesis have considerably changed in the recent past. While platelets had previously been seen only as contributors in primary haemostasis and as donors of negatively charged phospholipids…
