A renewed understanding of Trauma Induced Coagulopathy (TIC) has implicated platelets as a crucial mediator and potential therapeutic target in hemostasis. While the importance of abnormal coagulation tests is well described in trauma, there is a paucity of data regarding the role of platelets in coagulopathy. New coagulation models, namely the cell-based-model of hemostasis, have refocused attention toward the platelet and endothelium as key regulators of clot formation. Although platelet… CONTINUE READING
