A Case Report of Severe Factor XI Deficiency during Cardiac Surgery: Less Can Be More.

J Cardiovasc Dev Dis 2022 Apr 15;9(4). Epub 2022 Apr 15.

Department of Anesthesiology, The University of Arizona College of Medicine, Tucson, AZ 85724, USA.

Severe congenital Factor XI (FXI) deficiency (<20% normal activity) can be associated with significant bleeding disorders, and there has been great concern for severe bleeding following cardiac surgery requiring cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in this patient population. Over the past four decades remarkably different approaches to this problem have been taken, including the administration of blood volumes of fresh frozen plasma, administration of activated recombinant Factor VII, and diminutive administration of heparin. We describe a case wherein the patient was assessed in the perioperative period with a point-of-care, viscoelastic hemostasis device (ROTEM), with changes in the intrinsic/Factor XII-dependent coagulation pathway determined before, during, and after CPB.

An Update on Safe Anticoagulation.

Hamostaseologie 2022 Feb 23;42(1):65-72. Epub 2022 Feb 23.

Institute of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), Hamburg, Germany.

Blood coagulation is essential to maintain the integrity of a closed circulatory system (hemostasis), but also contributes to thromboembolic occlusion of vessels (thrombosis). Thrombosis may cause deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, myocardial infarction, peripheral artery disease, and ischemic stroke, collectively the most common causes of death and disability in the developed world. Treatment for the prevention of thromboembolic diseases using anticoagulants such as heparin, coumarins, thrombin inhibitors, or antiplatelet drugs increase the risk of bleeding and are associated with an increase in potentially life-threatening hemorrhage, partially offsetting the benefits of reduced coagulation.
