plate·let

 (plāt′lĭt)
n.
A minute, nonnucleated, disklike cytoplasmic body found in the blood plasma of mammals that is derived from a megakaryocyte and functions to promote blood clotting. Also called blood platelet, thrombocyte.

plate·let

(plāt′lĭt)
Any of the numerous small round structures found in the blood of mammals that function in the clotting of blood. Platelets are formed in the bone marrow, contain no nuclei, and ingest and absorb foreign particles, including viruses.

For example, in some cardiovascular devices the materials used caused platelet adhesion on the surface and prevented the device from functioning properly.
An important rationale for this approach has been the observation that endothelium-derived nitric oxide (NO), a major mediator of endothelium-dependent vasodilation, has important anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic properties, ie, inhibiting leukocyte adhesion, limiting platelet adhesion and aggregation, and the expression of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), a prothrombotic protein.
