Abstract

Reduced hemostatic capacity is common following congenital heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The etiology is multifactorial with dilutional coagulopathy, as well as platelet adhesion and activation in the CPB circuit and oxygenator. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate platelet count and function in children following CPB.
