Abstract Adequate function of the coagulation system is vital for an uncomplicated outcome of surgery. Clinically relevant perioperative bleeding complications may occur when surgical hemostasis is inadequate, but can also be caused by insufficient activity of the hemostatic system. Optimal surgical hemostasis and a satisfactory function of the coagulation system are complementary. In this article current insights on normal function and dysfunction of the coagulation system are reviewed as well ...

Abstract The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) states in its Guidelines for the Management of Hemophilia, Second Edition 1 , that people with hemophilia are best managed in a comprehensive care setting. That team is typically comprised of a core group including a hematologist, nurse coordinator, physiotherapist, social worker, specialized lab technologist and data manager, and as needed, by other specialists. Hemophilia is an X-linked congenital bleeding disorder caused by a deficiency of coa...

Abstract Patient blood management (PBM) aims to reduce red blood cell transfusion, minimize preoperative anemia, reduce intraoperative blood loss as well as optimize hemostasis, and individually manage postoperative anemia. Benefits include improved clinical outcome with a reduction in patient morbidity and mortality, but also lower hospital costs and shorter hospital length of stay. To date, it has been successfully implemented in several medical specialties, such as cardiac, trauma and orthope...

Abstract Lung transplantation surgery often relies on the use of intraoperative extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and necessitates the need for high dose anticoagulation. Heparin induced thrombocytopenia complicates intraoperative anticoagulation management during lung transplant surgery requiring ECMO. Though other anticoagulants such as argatroban and bivalrudin are utilized for the treatment of Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT), the lack of reversal agents makes it difficult to ...

Abstract Objectives The ISTH bleeding assessment tool (ISTH-BAT) is developed for standardization of bleeding symptoms in bleeding disorders. The aim of this study is to apply this bleeding score for FXIII deficient patients and its relation to the frequency and severity of symptoms. Methods In this cross-sectional study, 63 patients with severe FXIII deficiency were evaluated for the assessment of bleeding score according to the standard ISTH-BAT questionnaire. All patients were registered at t...

Abstract Anemia in elderly (AE), though often mild, is quite common and independently associated with important clinical outcomes, including decreased quality of life, risk of falls and fractures, cognitive decline, increased length of hospital stay, and even mortality. AE is generally overlooked, and hence undertreated, especially when comorbidities distract the attention of physicians and caregivers. This also partially reflects difficulties in dissecting the cause(s) of AE, which is typically...

Abstract Factor VII (FVII) deficiency is the most common of the Rare Inherited Coagulation Disorders. The inheritance is autosomal recessive but there is variable penetrance. Overall there is poor correlation between the FVII level and the bleeding phenotype. Heterozygotes may have significant bleeding and severe homozygotes, or compound heterozygotes can be asymptomatic. Typically, homozygotes have FVII levels 10-20%. A personal and family history is essential to determine the bleeding risk and...
