The continuous increase in the demand for platelet transfusion has necessitated the need to establish standards for determining the quality of platelets during storage. Bacterial contamination of platelet products and deleterious changes in structure and function referred to as the platelet storage lesion (PSL), have restricted the platelet shelf life to 5 days. The PSL and platelet health variables have been well studied and documented. The precise correlation between in vitro assays and in vivo platelet recovery and survival is yet to be established. This review presents an overview of the current understanding of PSL and the novel approaches being developed to negate the storage lesion.
