Thrombelastographic changes and early rebleeding in cirrhotic patients with variceal bleeding.
Routine coagulation tests do not necessarily reflect haemostasis in vivo in cirrhotic patients, particularly those who have bleeding varices. Thrombelastography (TEG) can provide a global assessment of haemostatic function from initial clot formation to clot dissolution.
