Detection of elevated INR by thromboelastometry and thromboelastography in warfarin treated patients and healthy controls.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION The diagnostic potential of whole blood viscoelastic tests thromboelastography (TEG®) and thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) to detect warfarin-induced INR elevation remains elusive. METHODS Viscoelastic tests were performed in 107 patients on warfarin and 89 healthy controls. Tests were activated by kaolin for TEG, and ellagic acid (INTEM) or… (More)
