Contrasting post-traumatic serial changes for D-dimer and PAI-1 in critically injured patients.

Abstract

We measured D-dimer and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) activity in 45 trauma patients to assess their efficacy in predicting the post-traumatic hemostatic perturbations. We found the correlation between D-dimer measured by Simpli Red test and ELISA to be highly significant (p=0.0001). The D-dimer ELISA indicated that the serial changes of D-dimer… (More)
