Platelets play an important role in acute coronary syndromes. Platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor inhibitors have been used to block the final common pathway of platelet aggregation. The biochemical and pharmacological properties of these agents have been extensively studied. However, the impact of different treatment modalities on platelet recovery has not been compared.
