BACKGROUND Systemic hyperfibrinolysis is a lethal phenotype of trauma-induced coagulopathy. Its pathogenesis is poorly understood. Recent studies have support a central role of platelets in hemostasis and in fibrinolysis regulation, implying that platelet impairment is integral to the development of postinjury systemic hyperfibrinolysis. OBJECTIVE The(More)
Metabolic derangement is a key hallmark of major traumatic injury. The recent introduction of mass spectrometry-based metabolomics technologies in the field of trauma shed new light on metabolic aberrations in plasma that are triggered by trauma and hemorrhagic shock. Alteration in metabolites associated with catabolism, acidosis and hyperglycemia have been(More)
BACKGROUND Water-soluble components in mesenteric lymph have been implicated in the pathophysiology of acute lung injury and distal organ failure following trauma and haemorrhagic shock. Proteomics analyses have recently shown similarities and specificities of post-trauma/haemorrhagic shock lymph and plasma. We hypothesise that the metabolic phenotype of(More)
