OBJECTIVE: To describe the thromboelastographic changes in fibrinolysis with ε-aminocaproic acid treatment in a dog with suspected acute traumatic coagulopathy. CASE SUMMARY: A 9-year-old female spayed Airedale Terrier was presented with multiple injuries consistent with motor vehicle trauma. After surgical repair of a diaphragmatic hernia and minor laceration of the right cranial lung lobe, the dog continued to produce copious volumes of hemorrhagic fluid from the thoracic cavity despite multiple plasma transfusions, autotransfusions, and failure to locate a definitive source of bleeding during 2 separate surgeries...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the utility of population-based reference intervals (PRIs) for interpreting thromboelastography (TEG) variables in horses using biological variation data. DESIGN: Prospective cohort biologic variation study conducted over a 5-week period. SETTING: Veterinary teaching hospital and research facility. ANIMALS: Ten clinically healthy horses randomly selected from a veterinary school research and teaching herd...

Thromboelastrography (TEG) is one of the most common whole-blood viscoelastic coagulation tests used in clinical laboratories and at the point of care. TEG provides information on coagulation defects that are often difficult to detect using routine laboratory tests such as activated partial prothrombin time or prothrombin time. In certain critically ill patient populations, the use of TEG instead of or in addition to routine laboratory coagulation tests has been shown to improve outcomes or reduce transfusion requirements...

OBJECTIVES: In gram-positive sepsis, lipoteichoic acid (LTA) can induce alterations of haemostasis, potentially leading to disseminated intravascular coagulation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Here, we demonstrate the effects of LTA on haemostasis in an in vitro model of gram-positive sepsis based on rotation thromboelastrography (ROTEM). RESULTS: In this model, LTA leads to time- and dose-dependent shortening of the clotting time (CT), whereas other ROTEM parameters are unaffected...

BACKGROUND: Haemostatic alterations are commonly detected in human and canine cancer patients. Previous studies have described haemostatic dysfunction in canine patients with haemangiosarcomas and carcinomas, and haemostasis has been assessed in dogs with various malignant and benign neoplasias. Few studies have addressed the effect of cancer type and progression of disease on the presence of haemostatic alterations in canine patients. The objective of the present study was to evaluate haemostatic variables of coagulation and fibrinolysis in a group of canine cancer patients, and to compare haemostatic changes to the cancer type and progression of disease...
