Platelet counts (PC) estimate bleeding risk in Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP). We investigated whether measures of thromboelastometry and absolute immature platelet fraction (A-IPF) would correlate better with acute bleeding score (ABS) than PC or mean platelet volume (MPV). Simultaneous determination of ABS, complete blood count and thromboelastometry was(More)
Patients with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a disease characterized by abnormally low platelet count, are susceptible to excessive bleeding as a direct consequence. While the problem of low platelet count can be addressed fundamentally either by slowing down the rate of platelet destruction or by increasing platelet production, or both, one of the(More)
