BACKGROUND Conventional coagulation tests are frequently prolonged after liver surgery, suggesting a post-operative hypocoagulability. However, these tests are unreliable for assessment of the haemostatic status in these patients. In contrast, thrombin generation testing measures the true balance between pro- and anti-coagulant factors. AIM To study the perioperative coagulation status in patients undergoing hemi-hepatectomy using thrombin generation assays. METHODS We examined thrombin… CONTINUE READING
