UNLABELLED Despite clinical and laboratory evidence of perioperative hypercoagulability, there are no consistent data evaluating the extent, duration, and specific contribution of platelets and procoagulatory proteins by in vitro testing. We tested the hypothesis that the parallel use of standard and abciximab-cytochalasin D-modified thromboelastography (TEG) can assess 7 days' postoperative hypercoagulability and can estimate the independent contribution of procoagulatory proteins and… CONTINUE READING
