The determination of the onset of a disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is examined shortly after its intraoperative andpost-operative dissolution with the help of easily performable haematological and physiological clotting tests in 20 patients. In this connection the operation is appreciated as a model even for other processes defined at the beginning, where DIC can be observed. Whereas the aethanol test, the determination of fibrinogen split products (FSP) and the euglobulin lysis time indicate the beginning of DIC more clearly in the form of average values, the aethanol test, partial thromboplastin time and thrombin time have a prognostic value for each patient. As it is too time consuming to determine FSP, the counting of basophilie granulocytes may be used for the diagnosis. In the initial phase of and post-operative DIC will determine the essential share of predisposition to post-operative thromboembolism.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.


Basophils are myeloid cells with a high affinity IgE receptor and is involved in inflammatory responses during allergy. Discover the latest research on Basophils here.
