Meta-analysis of coagulation management via thromboelastometry in Cardiac Surgery

Our Medical Director alerted us to this great article in the June edition of the Journal of Surgical Research.

“TEG/ROTEM-based coagulation management decreases the risk of allogeneic blood product exposure after cardiac surgery. Furthermore, it results in significantly lower re-exploration rate, decreased incidence of postoperative AKI, and thromboembolic events in cardiac surgery patients. Results of this meta-analysis indicate that POCT-guided transfusion therapy is superior to the current standard of care.”
