The goal of platelet function testing in the catheterization laboratory is to provide information about the platelet contributions to the risk of thrombotic or hemorrhagic events and optimization of anti-platelet therapy for percutaneous interventions. We present several illustrative cases in which platelet monitoring with the Rapid Platelet Function Assay (RPFA™, Accumetrics) was used to guide dosing of a glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa inhibitor for coronary and peripheral intervention among patients at increased bleeding risk.
