Fallibility of the platelet count and fibrinogen concentration in evaluating circulatory assistance technique--a plea for turnover studies.

Abstract

Platelet and fibrinogen kinetics were investigated in calves undergoing prolonged extracorporeal left ventricular bypass in which both platelet and fibrinogen concentrations were within or above the normal range. Sequential survival time measurements documented significant continuing destruction of both platelets and fibrinogen during the course of these… (More)
