This exposes collagen etc, to the plasma, triggering haemostasis
The operating surgeon was concerned about the ability to achieve rapid complete haemostasis
of the lesion in a crying mobile infant and felt that general anaesthesia would be most appropriate.

Following a feasibility project, IDS and Stago have formed a partnership to assist the French firm in developing coagulation and haemostasis
assays for use on the IDS-iSYS immunoanalyzer.
Four patients in whom a second haemostasis
failed did not undergo surgery and died (3 by D3 and 1 by D30).
We report on 2 patients with surgical site infections following the inadvertent use of Teflon felt for haemostasis
in elective and emergency surgery.
The adipokinome (which together with lipid moieties released, such as fatty acids and prostaglandins, constitute the secretome of fat cells) includes proteins involved in lipid metabolism, insulin sensitivity, the alternative complement system, vascular haemostasis
, blood pressure regulation and angiogenesis, as well as the regulation of energy balance.
The study is published in recent issues of the journal Blood and the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis

The section on "Coagulopathy in Massive Transfusion" contains the most recent references on the use of recombinant Factor Seven and a refreshingly clear explanation of the effects of acidosis and hypothermia on haemostasis
