Abstract

Aspirin resistance is defined by platelet function testing and presumed clinical unresponsiveness to aspirin. Aspirin-resistant patients are at a greater risk of clinically important adverse cardiovascular events. We aimed to investigate whether end-stage renal disease patients with aspirin resistance are at increased risk for long-term major adverse clinical events.
