Platelets play important roles in thrombosis and hemostasis, and their abnormalities lead to hemostatic disorders or thrombotic diseases. Due to genetic technique development, the study of genetic factors related to the hereditary platelet dysfunction, and the evaluation of gene polymorphisms have been reported recently. In this article, we will focus mainly on hereditary platelet disorders and genetic variations of platelet glycoproteins involved in the pathogenesis of thrombotic diseases.
