Abstract

Current hematologic approaches to minimize postoperative bleeding have focused principally on antifibrinolytic agents. To explore whether a need might exist to promote clot stabilization independent of steps that might be taken to prevent lysis, we followed levels of the functional A-chain of factor XIII (fibrin stabilizing factor) immunologically in 19… (More)
