Platelet Disorder

Platelet Disorder Definition

Abnormalities in the number of platelets in an individual such as a reduced count, elevated count, or adhesion or aggregation, lead to certain disorders. Low levels may result to bleeding while high levels increase the risk of thrombosis.

Platelet Disorder Treatment

Low platelet counts are not usually corrected by transfusion unless the patient is bleeding or the count is below normal. Oral agents or intravenous agents are often used to alter or suppress platelet function.
