Conclusion

Variability in response to aspirin clearly exists, and the low end of the response curve may represent aspirin resistance. The potential impact of aspirin resistance on public health and the treatment of atherosclerotic diseases is considerable. Further research is needed to fully characterize the potential of aspirin resistance as a risk factor for thrombotic events and to offer treatment solutions for aspirin-resistant patients.
