    Abstract

    Severe platelet function defects are rare disorders that require expertise in diagnosis and management. Therefore patients with such disorders should be referred to and managed in centres with the full laboratory repertoire of tests and clinical support necessary to optimise their quality of care. The aim of this review is to discuss the management of these patients in various clinical situations including surgical intervention.
