Figure 7 Platelet survival times and platelet disappearance curves according to Branehög et al[50] in 10 thrombocythemia patients complicated by erythromelalgi (E+), 10 asymptomatic thrombocythemia patients (E-), and 11 asymptomatic patients with thrombocytosis (T). Curvilinear platelet survival curves in E+ indicates a consumptive diappearance of thrombocythemic platelets from the circulation: Slight curvilinear platelet survival curves in E- suggest slight, but insignificant random platelet consumption; and linear platelet survival curves in group T with reactive thrombocytosis indicate a non-random, age-related disappearance of platelets from the circulation. MS = mean survival. T1/2; MaLS = maximal life span according to Branehög et al[50].
