Hemostasis is a complex dynamic process involving bleeding and thrombosis as two end-points. Conventional coagulation tests which are measured in plasma examine only isolated portions of the coagulation cascade, thereby giving no information on important interactions essential to the clinical evaluation of hemostatic function. Thromboelastography (TEG), originally described in 1948 has improved over the decades and become a valuable tool of coagulation testing because of the limitations of standard coagulation tests...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the clinical value of immature platelet fraction (IPF), absolute immature platelet fraction (A- IPF) and thrombelastograph (TEG) on assessment of bleeding risk of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). METHODS: two hundred and seventy- one patients with ITP were assessed based on ITP-BAT bleeding grading system. IPF, A-IPF were determined in 271 patients ,TEG in 125 patients. The correlations between bleeding grades and IPF, A-IPF, variables of TEG in subgroups were analyzed by statistical method...

Previous laboratory and clinical data have shown evidence for the concept of rebalanced hemostasis in liver disease. We evaluate whether this concept of rebalanced hemostasis can be applied in patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Twenty patients with ITP (platelet count < 100 × 10(9) /l) who visited our hospital were enrolled. We measured the von Willebrand factor (vWF) antigen levels and performed native blood thromboelastography (TEG) to evaluate the hemostasis. As a subgroup analysis, we compared patients with elevated vWF levels with those with normal levels...

BACKGROUND: Thromboembolism has recently been described as a complication following treatment for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). This pilot study was undertaken to determine whether dogs suffering from ITP experience hypercoagulability during treatment and recovery. STUDY DESIGN: Thromboelastograms (TEG) were performed on dogs with ITP within 24 hours of admission to the hospital, the first day the platelet count exceeded 40 × 10(9) /L (Day 1), and on Days 4, 7, and 14...

Thrombelastography (TEG) analyses the status of blood coagulation including abnormalities associated with low platelet count. The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in TEG parameters in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) patients. Thirty nine patients with ITP (platelet count < 100 × 103  µl⁻¹) were included in the study. Age-matched 17 patients with thrombocytopenia due to chemotherapy were selected as a control group. Platelet count was positively correlated with maximum clot formation (MCF) in INTEM (r = 0...
