Background: Aspirin non-responsiveness has been described as having a normal closure time (CT) by platelet function analyzer (PFA)-100 assay despite confirmed treatment with aspirin. There is no standard definition of aspirin non-responsiveness by PFA-100, with a variety of cut-off values having been used. We proposed an alternative definition of aspirin non-responsiveness by PFA-100 assay.
