OBJECTIVES Patients undergoing cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are at risk of bleeding. The goal of this investigation was to compare thromboelastography (TEG) with standard coagulation tests (prothrombin time [PT], partial thromboplastin time [PTT], fibrinogen, and D-dimer) in patients with active bleeding. METHODS A retrospective study of patients who underwent cardiac surgery with CPB was performed. A second analysis was performed to determine if a shortened TEG R time is… CONTINUE READING
