Moderate plasma dilution using artificial plasma expanders shifts the haemostatic balance to hypercoagulation

Abstract

Artificial plasma expanders (PEs) are widely used in modern transfusion medicine. PEs do not contain components of the coagulation system, so their infusion in large volumes causes haemodilution and affects haemostasis. However, the existing information on this effect is contradictory. We studied the effect of the very process of plasma dilution on… (More)
