    Haemoscope is now offering Kaolin as an activator in addition to Celite. Kaolin activity is similar to Celite, but it is less susceptible to the presence of trasylol. It is used the same way as Celite and has the same normal ranges. To run the blood sample with Kaolin, select the Celite sample...

    Purpose: A retrospective review of consecutive adult patients undergoing scoliosis correction surgery was performed to compare the effects of aprotinin and tranexamic acid in blood conservation and to define a comprehensive blood conservation strategy for such surgery. Methods: Medical records...

    Plasmin-antiplasmin complex (PAP) has been reported previously as elevated in sepsis syndrome and infection. To assess the value of PAP complex and the thrombin-antithrombin (TAT)/PAP ratio in thermal injury, sixty patients were studied within the first 36 h, at 5-7 days following injury, and at...

    The article discusses about antifibrinolytic agents in traumatic hemorrhage. The hemostatic system helps to maintain the integrity of the circulatory system after severe vascular injury, whether traumatic or surgical in origin. Systemic antifibrinolytic agents are widely used in major surgery to...

    Thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) provides an important molecular link between the coagulation and fibrinolytic systems. In this review, recent major advances in TAFI research, including the elucidation of crystal structures, the development of small inhibitors and the role of...

    Haemoscope is now offering Kaolin as an activator in addition to Celite.Kaolin activity is similar to Celite, but it is less susceptible to the presence of trasylol (Aprotinin). Kaolin serves as a contact surface activator, also referred toas an intrinsic pathway activator via Factor XII. It is...

    The coagulation system is a potent mechanism that prevents blood loss after vascular injury. It consists of a number of linked enzymatic reactions resulting in thrombin generation. Thrombin converts soluble fibrinogen into a fibrin clot. The clot is subsequently removed by the fibrinolytic...
