The authors evaluated the correlation of post-cardiopulmonary bypass surgery bleeding, measured as 24-hour chest tube output/kilogram body weight, with platelet function tests using glass bead adhesion and Thrombelastograph Platelet Mapping (Haemoscope Corporation, Niles, Ill); coagulation tests; patient characteristics; surgery parameters; and visual assessment of surgical field bleeding before closure as not bleeding (code 1), oozing (code 2), and excessive bleeding (code 3).
