Liver Transplantation In Man: IV, Haemorrhage And Thrombosis

Abstract

Blood coagulation and fibrinolytic factors have been measured in 13 patients treated by liver transplantation. During operation intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis were increased, but seldom to a degree which would cause abnormal bleeding. Measurement of the catabolism of radioactive fibrinogen showed that increased intravascular coagulation continued for long periods after the operation. Despite secondarily increased fibrinolysis, there was a high incidence of thrombosis. Treatment with anticoagulants or with fibrinolysis inhibitors may be valuable in these patients.
