Effect of progressive haemodilution with hydroxyethyl starch, gelatin and albumin on blood coagulation


Egli, G A; Zollinger, A; Seifert, Burkhardt; Popovic, D; Pasch, T; Spahn, D R (1997). Effect of progressive haemodilution with hydroxyethyl starch, gelatin and albumin on blood coagulation. British Journal of Anaesthesia, 78(6):684-689.

Abstract

We have compared the effects of progressive (30% and 60%) in vitro haemodilution with hydroxyethyl starch (HES), gelatin (GEL) and albumin (ALB) with haemodilution using 0.9% saline in 96 patients by thrombelastography. Haemodilution with HES, GEL and ALB significantly (P < 0.05) compromised coagulation time (k), angle alpha and maximal amplitude (MA), with HES having the most negative effect at 30% and 60% haemodilution (P < 0.05). Haemodilution with saline significantly affected all variables of blood coagulation and clot lysis measured by thrombelastography, resulting in an increased coagulability at 30% haemodilution. To specifically assess the intrinsic effect of plasma expander molecules on blood coagulation and clot lysis, we analysed the difference between saline diluted blood (same degree of haemodilution) and plasma expander diluted blood. Prolongation of reaction time (r) was found for HES at 30% and 60% haemodilution and for ALB at 60% haemodilution and an increase in clot lysis by HES, GEL and ALB became evident. We conclude that HES, GEL and ALB compromised blood coagulation, while the maximum effect was found with HES.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
