Platelet apheresis Transfusion medicine The centrifugal separation of platelets from whole blood, with continuous or intermittent return of the RBCs and platelet-poor plasma to the donor; plateletpheresis is a form of exchange transfusion used for Pts with extremely high–> 1-1.5 x 109/L platelet counts, which is linked to severe thrombotic and hemorrhagic phenomena; to prevent a rebound ↑ of platelets after the procedure, plateletpheresis must be followed by cytotoxic therapy. See Therapeutic apheresis. Cf Cytapheresis, Leukapheresis.
