From: Children undergoing cardiac surgery for complex cardiac defects show imbalance between pro- and anti-thrombotic activity

  AT III (preoperative) AT III (four hours postoperative) MCP-1 (four hours postoperative) PT (four hours postoperative) PTT (four hours postoperative)
F1+2 (end of CPB) Negative (p < 0.05) Negative (p < 0.01) Positive (p < 0.01)   
F1+2 (five minutes after protamine) Negative (p < 0.05) Negative (p < 0.01)    
F1+2 (four hours postoperative) Negative (p < 0.01)    Positive (p < 0.01)  
MCP-1 (four hours postoperative) Negative (p < 0.05) Negative (p < 0.01)    
TFPI (five minutes after protamin)     Positive (p < 0.05) Negative (p < 0.05)
  1. AT III, antithrombin III; BV, biventricular; CPB, cardiopulmonary bypass; F1+2, prothrombin fragment 1+2; MCP-1, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1; PT, prothrombin time; PTT, partial thromboplastin time; TFPI, tissue factor pathway inhibitor.
