Conclusion of Interdisciplinary Expert Council of Russian Association of Angiologists and Vascular Surgeons, Russian Scientific Society of Endovascular Surgeons and Interventional Radiologists, National Stroke Association, National Scientific Inflammation Society The Conclusion of Interdisciplinary Expert Council on the significance of testing of platelet functional activity in the prevention of cardiovascular complications in patients receiving antiplatelet therapy is presented. Indications for antiplatelet therapy, relation of platelet reactivity with the risk of adverse events, as well as factors that contribute to high residual platelet reactivity in patients receiving antiplatelet therapy are considered. The results of studies on the correction of antiplatelet therapy based on aggregometry data, indications for its implementation in clinical practice, as well as methods for evaluation of residual platelet reactivity are discussed separately.
