The platelet-mapping assay of the thromboelastograph was used to measure platelet aggregation and to examine the effect of cardiopulmonary bypass on multiple platelet receptors and the role of altered receptor activity in postoperative bleeding. The percentage platelet aggregation for collagen, adenosine diphosphate and arachidonic acid was measured in 40 patients divided post-hoc into high- or low-bleeding groups depending on postoperative 24-h chest tube output. Platelet aggregation was lower… CONTINUE READING
