Platelet function diagnosis: The graphs show qualitative alterations in platelet function diagnosis by PFA100® (upper) or light transmission aggregometry (lower). Bold red signs demonstrate deviation from the normal range (dotted line). Bleeding time is reported in seconds (s), higher values thus indicating an abnormal long time till aggregation. Born Aggregation is reported in percentage of a normal probe with no aggregation and complete light transmission, higher values thus indicating impaired aggregation. Abbreviations in brackets indicate stimulating substances for test: EPI = epinephrine, ADP = adenosintriphosphate, Col = collagen; Rist = ristocetin; The quantitative values for each patient and test are depicted in Additional file 2: Table S2
