    We aimed to establish the reference range of thromboelastograph (TEG) maximum amplitude (MA) in patients taking antiplatelet drugs. Between August 2015 and July 2018, a total of 4614 patients administrating with antiplatelet drugs (clopidogrel and aspirin) were retrospectively analyzed in this study. For MAA parameter, we used the 10th and 90th percentiles to establish a reference range. The Spearman correlation was used for the correlation analysis among the inhibition rate of adenosine diphosphate (ADP%) and MAADP , inhibition rate of arachidonic acid (AA%) and MAAA . Then, through receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis of the best cutoff point, the reference ranges of MAADP and MAAA could be deduced. Consistency evaluation was performed by statistical analysis of ADP% and MAADP , AA% and MAAA pairing for 4459 patients. The reference range of MAA was 8.1-25.8 mm. The reference range of MAADP was 19.8-43.2 mm, and the corresponding sensitivity of two endpoints was 0.796, 0.856 and specificity were 0.897, 0.904, respectively. The reference range of MAAA was 18.9-37.7 mm, and the corresponding sensitivity of two endpoints was 0.819, 0.829 and specificity were 0.922, 0.896, respectively. The inconsistency rate of ADP% and MAADP , and AA% and MAAA was 20.1% (898 cases) and 16.6% (738 cases), respectively. The reference range of MAADP and MAAA established by us were better in sensitivity and specificity. MAADP and MAAA were more accurate than conventional inhibition rate analysis in guidance of antiplatelet therapy, especially in patients with excessive low MA or high MAA . © 2019 The Authors.
