The Role of Blood Components and Their Properties in the Pathogenesis of Cerebral Infarction of Cortical and Deep Brain Structures — Platelet Aggregability
It is generally accepted that blood components and their functions play an important role not only in the maintenance of cerebral blood flow but also in the pathogenesis of cerebral infarction. The abnormally increased platelet count could be a risk factor for cerebral ischemia. Elevated hematocrit value reduces blood flow and it has been reported as a risk factor for cerebral infarction, especially of the perforating artery system .
