INTRODUCTION To what extent haematocrit levels (Hct) and platelet counts (PLT) influence the measurement of parameters of thromboelastometry when assessed with the ROTEM® device is unclear. We investigated to what extent thromboelastometry measurements depend on Hct and PLT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Whole blood samples were taken for in-vitro preparations of(More)
While the use of thromboelastometry analysis (ROTEM®) in evaluation of haemostasis is rapidly increasing, important validity parameters of testing remain inadequately examined. We aimed to study systematically the consistency of thromboelastometry parameters within individual tests regarding measurements between different analysers, between different(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to investigate the accuracy indices of the new automated and rapid microlatex D-dimer assay, STA Liatest D-Di, on the STA-R analyzer and to compare it with established D-dimer assays. METHODS D-dimer testing has been performed in 103 consecutive outpatients with suspected deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Diagnosis(More)
