  1. Data are presented as median and interquartile range. Groups were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis test. A10, clot amplitude 10 minutes after CT; CFT, clot formation time; CT, clotting time; EXTEM, extrinsically activated thromboelastometric test; FIBTEM, extrinsically activated thromboelastometric test with cytochalasin D; INTEM, intrinsically activated thromboelastometric test; LI60, lysis index 60 minutes after CT; MCE, maximum clot elasticity; MCF, maximum clot firmness; MT, massive transfusion; n, number of patients; non-MT, non-massive transfusion; ns, not significant; RBC, red blood cell concentrate.
