In the context of neurointerventional procedures, clopidogrel hyper-responsiveness has been associated with hemorrhage; on the other hand, clopidogrel resistance has been associated with thromboembolism. This might seem to make a compelling argument in favor of routine platelet testing. Our reading of the literature leads us to conclude that routine platelet testing in neurointerventional procedures is not, unfortunately, ready for prime time.
