PFA–100 (Cont'd)

Slide 19

December 2011

The PFA-100 can be run 24 hours a day, is relatively quick and easy to operate and is moderately priced. It is fairly adept at screening patients for mild congenital bleeding disorders such as Type 1 von Willebrand disease. It is also useful for following aspirin resistance or looking for platelet dysfunction from other medications. However, the results with clopidogrel were variable and it was not recommended for this purpose.
