(a) Adenosine diphosphate (ADE)
(b) Epinephrine (EPI)
Figure 4: Results of two platelet aggregometry tests: patient (blue line) and control (black line). (a) From left to right, the percentage of platelet aggregation with decreasing doses of ADE is shown. At 1 μmol, the patient presents platelet aggregation of almost 90% at 10 min. At lower concentrations of ADE, the pattern of aggregation is similar to that of the control (0.5 and 0.25 μmol). (b) From left to right, the percentage of platelet aggregation with decreasing doses of EPI is shown. At 11 μmol, the patient and control present platelet aggregation that reaches more than 80% at 10 min. In contrast to lower concentrations of EPI, while the control stops having platelet aggregation, the patient maintains a pattern of aggregation above 80% at concentrations of 0.25 and 0.125 μmol.
