French term or phrase: antiagrégeants
Tous les agents antiplaquettaires n'ont pas le même pouvoir antiagrégeant.

Pour compliquer les choses, les patients traités par antiagrégeants ou par anticoagulants ne semblent pas courir le même risque de survenue d'un hématome sous arachnoidien ou péridural.

This word appears many times throughout a document but I'm having trouble defining it. Is antiagrégeant simply antiplatelet (as in medication)?

anticoagulating agent


Explanation:
An antiagrégeant is an agent that prrevents the coagulation or association of platelets, not the platelets per se. In that sense, it is anti-platelet.

platelet suppressive agents


Explanation:
Defined in the Grand Dictionnaire as: "Groupe de médicaments utilisés en thérapeutique pour leur propriété d'inhibition de l'agrégation plaquettaire et déterminant un allongement du temps de saignement."

This translation and a very similar definition is also given in Kernbaum/Grünfeld (see below).

(All comes down to much the same thing as other answers)
