Resumen

DUSSAILLANT N, Gastón et al. Frequency and characteristics of aspirin resistance in Chilean cardiovascular patients. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2005, vol.133, n.4, pp.409-417. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872005000400003.

Background: Studies performed in Anglo-Saxon countries show that 5% of patients are resistant to the antiplatelet effects of aspirin. Aim: To assess the prevalence of aspirin resistance in a sample of Chilean cardiovascular patients and its association with clinical and laboratory characteristics. Patients and Methods: Ninety nine patients (30 women, 63±10 years) treated for stable cardiovascular diseases with aspirin 100-325 mg/day were studied. Clinical and basic coagulation variables were assessed. Platelet aggregation was studied with platelet rich plasma using three different agonists in an optical aggregometer. Aspirin resistance was defined as an aggregation 20% with arachidonic acid and an aggregation 70% with ADP or collagen. Results: Eleven patients (11.11%, 95% CI= 4.95-17.27%) complied with both criteria and were classified as aspirin resistant. Current smoking was more common in aspirin resistant patients (63.6 vs 29.6%, p=0.039). Conclusions: Aspirin resistance was found in a significant proportion of cardiovascular patients and was more common among current smokers
