Background: Tissue injury after trauma and surgery may induce alterations in blood coagulation and fibrinolysis, and the hypercoagulable state observed after surgery can be associated with the risk of postoperative thromboembolic complications. Recently, videolaparoscopic (VLPS) cholecystectomy has been introduced, and its advantages over the open procedure seem related to the reduced surgical trauma. The aim of this study was to investigate hemostatic system alterations in patients who undergo… CONTINUE READING
