Why is it that aspirin can prevent blood clots in arteries but not in veins? If it inhibits platelet function, why does it not do that everywhere?
It does: It does inhibit platelet function. It does inhibit clot formation in veins. Its just that venous clots aren't quite as serious an issue. We worry about clots in the arteries to your heart that can lead to heart attack or an artery to your extremity leading to cold leg or arm. People do get clots in their veins, they are called DVTs but they usually aren't fatal. ...Read more
