Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are chromatin ﬁlaments released by activated polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) and decorated with granule proteins with various properties. Several lines of evidence implicate NETs in thrombosis. The functional significance and the in vivo relevance of NETs during atherothrombosis in humans have not been addressed until now.
