BACKGROUND Hemostasis is preserved after off-pump coronary operations compared with conventional coronary procedures. However, this preserved hemostasis may result in a procoagulant activity. METHODS We prospectively studied coagulation in 22 patients who underwent off-pump coronary operation either through a midline sternotomy (n = 14) or with minimally invasive anterolateral thoracotomy (n = 8). RESULTS Procoagulant activity, represented by prothrombin factor 1 and 2, remained at baseline… CONTINUE READING
