Hyperfibrinolysis diagnosed by rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) is associated with higher mortality in patients with severe trauma


Theusinger, O M; Wanner, G A; Emmert, M Y; Billeter, A; Eismon, J; Seifert, Burkhardt; Simmen, H P; Spahn, D R; Baulig, W (2011). Hyperfibrinolysis diagnosed by rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) is associated with higher mortality in patients with severe trauma. Anesthesia and Analgesia, 113(5):1003-1012.

Abstract

Mortality from hyperfibrinolysis is significantly higher in trauma compared with nontrauma patients, and hyperfibrinolysis is an independent factor predicting mortality in trauma patients. Rotational thromboelastometry provides real-time recognition of hyperfibrinolysis allowing early treatment.
