Plasma-soluble platelet glycoprotein VI (sGPVI) levels were examined in patients undergoing living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), and the relationship between platelet activation and thrombocytopenia was evaluated to understand the mechanism of thrombocytopenia in LDLT. Platelet counts were significantly higher in the donors compared to the recipient, and the plasma sGPVI levels increased in both groups after the operation. Regarding the relationship between the platelet counts and the sGPVI levels, the slope varied on different days, and it became negative on day 3, suggesting that the plasma sGPVI levels are related to platelet activation in LDLT. The frequency of complications was high in the nonsurvivors. The platelet counts were higher in the survivors than in the nonsurvivors on days 14 and 28. Although the plasma levels of sGPVI in the survivors increased after the operation, those in the nonsurvivors were high only on day 3. Although the ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with a thrombospondin type 1 domain, member 13) levels were markedly reduced, von Willebrand factor (VWF) and VWF propeptide (VWFpp) were markedly elevated during LDLT. The antithrombin activity was significantly lower (day 14) and VWFpp (day 28) was significantly higher in the nonsurvivors than in the survivors. These findings suggest that platelet activation first occurs after LDLT, and it is high in the nonsurvivors on day 3. Thereafter, the hemostatic abnormality and vascular endothelial cell injuries may appear on days 14 and 28.
