Platelets have been implicated in the pathogenesis of liver damage after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Early graft dysfunction is frequently caused by reperfusion injury subsequent to cold ischemia (IRI). Therefore, we investigated activation of the pivotal haemostatic cells, platelets and monocytes...
