Thromboelastography During Surgery for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma

Published: August 19, 2013

Primary Outcome Measures:

  • Coagulation profile during extrapleural pneumonectomy or pleurectomy [ Time Frame: Surgical period (4-6 hours) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reaction time, alpha angle, maximum amplitude and clot lysis from thromboelastography give a better picture of coagulation at different phases of surgery

Detailed Description:

Thromboelastography can provide more in-depth and quicker analysis of the complex coagulation processes during surgery
