Activation of hemostasis in brain dead organ donors: an observational study.


BACKGROUND Brain death is associated with a systemic inflammatory response resulting in diminished organ function in individuals transplanted with organs from brain dead donors. As inflammation is accompanied by activation of coagulation, we hypothesized that activation of hemostasis occurs in brain dead organ donors. OBJECTIVES To assess the hemostatic… (More)
