Most patients with cerebrovascular diseases are treated with antiplatelet drugs. Basic thromosis research showed that platelets are an important factor in the pathogenesis of ar- therosclerosis and its complications, but other compounds as macrophages and vessel wall factors are also involved in this process. The aim of this volume is to connect labora- tory findings with clinical applications
