These may be secondary to a variety of factors, such as venous endothelial cell damage, a potential hypercoagulable state, and the impedance of blood flow or venous stasis (Virchow's triad).
Decreased clotting and clot formation time as well as increased fibrinolysis also have a unique TEG tracing, which correlates with the specific hypocoagulable or hypercoagulable state.
