WSAVA 2001 - Coagulopathies—SOTAL (2196 words)
Coagulopathies may be associated with single or multiple sites of bleeding characterized by cavity bleeding such as hematoma, hemarthrosis, hemomediastinum, and hemoperitoneum and –thorax, but gastrointestinal hemorrhage and bruising may also occur.
In fact, a reasonable and simple approach for a bleeding animal to be screened for a coagulopathy would be to measure the ACT or PTT first as either test detects all coagulopathies (except for hereditary factor VII deficiency in Beagles).
Although hereditary coagulopathies can be suspected based upon the pattern of coagulation test abnormalities, specific factor analyses are needed to confirm a diagnosis.
Coagulation Disorders (12340 words)
Coagulopathy was corrected using fresh-frozen plasma, platelets, and vitamin K, and she was taken to surgery for evacuation of the hematomas.
Coagulopathies are another major cause of ICH in cancer patients and are most often seen in those with leukemia.
Of the 88 cases of ICH due to coagulopathy, underlying leukemia was present in 69, carcinoma in 10, lymphoma in seven, and multiple myeloma in two.
