A number of exciting new developments have occurred during the last few years concerning the platelet-vessel wall interaction. Although they may be obvious and clear to the specialist in the field, for the clinician the area has become rather confusing. Time has come to review current knowledge on the pathophysiology of the platelet-vessel wall interaction and show how this knowledge can constitute the rationale for pharmacotherapeutic interventions. A symposium was organized in Antwerp during which a number of outstanding speakers gave an overview of what is new on a particular topic and how this information can be translated to possible clinical applications. The proceedings of the symposium are not only of interest to the practising physician, but contain enough new fundamental data to be of use for all those who are interested in the role of platelets in the etiopathogenes ofcardiovascular diseases.
