BACKGROUND Small for Gestational Age (SGA) neonates often appear with haemostatic alterations, principally due to hepatic dysfunction that results from chronic intrauterine hypoxia. Polycythaemia and thrombocytopenia are common findings in this neonatal population. STUDY DESIGN We performed a comparison of coagulation, natural inhibitors and fibrinolysis(More)
BACKGROUND The pathogenetic profile of premature Small for Gestational Age (SGA) neonates is strongly related to their haemostatic equilibrium, which is inadequately understood. OBJECTIVE To evaluate coagulation and fibrinolysis in premature SGA neonates before intervening with Vitamin K administration. STUDY DESIGN We performed a comparison of(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical and experimental researches have linked smoking to disturbances of coagulation and fibrinolysis. Several potential mechanisms are incriminated involving inflammation, fibrinogen synthesis and clotting factors. Based on the fact that the majority of tobacco components cross the placental barrier, the objective of our current study is to(More)
