Abstract
In patients with cirrhosis, decreased rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) parameters suggest hypocoagulability secondary to liver dysfunction. However, observed normal or increased thrombin generation suggests preserved haemostasis and/or a procoagulant state. The correlated levels of both coagulation factors and inhibitors also support preserved haemostasis.
