Abstract

In this paper, we present a full review of the present guidelines on antiplatelet properties and indications for the prophylactic usage of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA). We include the results of the latest research mainly on primary prevention, the optimal dosage in the context of ASA resistance, and the possibilities of long-term co-operation with patients requiring ASA administration. We also discuss prevention methods of frequently occurring gastrointestinal symptoms of drug intolerance.
