Ionized Free Calcium Concentration and Deformability in Platelets
Platelets may play an important role in the pathogenesis of cerebral infarction in many ways, for example by forming occlusive thrombi and by releasing vasoconstrictor substances such as serotonin and thromboxane A2 (TXA2). It has been found that the platelet function in thrombotic disease is exacerbated, and the significance of this finding is being debated [2, 7].
