Definition of HEMOSTASIS
• The arrest of bleeding by repair of vessel wall
• Maintaining a balance
– Coagulation
– Fibrinolysis
• Hypocoagulation: excessive bleeding (inherited or
• Hypercoagulation (thrombosis) inadequate activation
of the fibrinolytic system

• Primary Hemostasis
– Blood vessel contraction
– Platelet Plug Formation

• Secondary Hemostasis
– Activation of Clotting Cascade
– Deposition & Stabilization of Fibrin

• Tertiary Hemostasis
– Dissolution of Fibrin Clot
– Dependent on Plasminogen Activation
Systems Involved in Hemostasis
• Vascular system
– Injured vessel initiates vasoconstriction
• Platelet System
– Injured vessel exposes collagen that initiates platelet
aggregation and help form plug
• Coagulation System
– protein factors of intrinsic and extrinsic pathways produce
a permanent fibrin plug

Primary Hemostatic defect Secondary Hemostatic defect
Primary hemostasis
• vasoconstriction (vascular system)
• platelet exposure to subendothelial connective tissue
of blood vessels
• Platelet release of ADP, ATP, Thromboxane A2
(promotes vasoconstriction)
• Platelet aggregation, phospholipid provides site for
fibrin formation

Quantitative Platelet Problems
• Using too many/ increased destruction
– Immune destruction: ITP, SLE, Anti Platelets Ab
– Non Immune destruction: DIC, TTP
– Drug induced: heparin (HIT), H2 Blocker
– Sepsis
• Low produce
– Bone marrow problem: Aplastic Anemia, Amegakaryocytic
thrombocytopenia, infection, toxins, drugs, Infiltrative marrow disease
• Maldistribution
– Splenic sequestration
– Cirrhosis (Hypersplenism)
Qualitative Platelets Disorders
• Congenital / Genetic
– Von Willebrand’s disease
– Glanzmann’s Thrombasthenia
– Bernard-Soulier Syndrome, a Gp1b receptor deficiency
(can’t bind to each other)
• Acquired
– Aspirin, other anti platelets aggregation drugs !! *
– Renal Failure: Uremia Inhibits Gp1b

• If normal aPTT and normal BT, then normal platelets

* : Most of common cases in clinic

Principles treatment of PHD
• Thrombocytopenia:
– Treat underlying disease / causes of thrombocytopenia
– No bleeding, no TC Transfusion
– With bleeding: can be given TC transfusion until bleeding stop
• Thrombopathy:
– Congenital anomaly with bleeding: Tx. The disease according to its
guidelines (Platelet transfusion or Cryo or DDAVP)
– Acquired: Tx. Underlying disease, Stop anti platelet aggregation drugs
• Increase of vascular permeability:
– Tx. Underlying disease
– Give drugs that can reduce vascular permeability; e.g: Carbazochrome
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP)
• Annual incidence: 1/10,000 children

• Pathogenesis
– Accelerated destruction of Ab-sensitized platelets by phagocytic
cells (especially in the spleen)
– Gp IIb-IIIa: most common auto Ag

• Classification:
– Acute ITP : generally in children, preceding viral infection
– Chronic ITP: in adult (80%), thrombocytopenia > 6 months
• Management of ITP

– First-line therapy: steroids, IVIG

– Second-line therapy: cyclosporine, danazol, vinca alkaloids,
azathioprine, cyclophosphamide

– Splenectomy
• Not always curative, but usually promotes long-term and sustained
• Complete remission rate: 72%
• Major risk: fatal sepsis due to encapsulated organisms
– Vaccination
– Penicillin prophylaxis

– Treatment decisions should be based on symptoms than on

platelet count !!

von Willebrand Disease
• The most common inherited bleeding disorder
• About 1% of the population
• Types I, II, and III.
• Symptom & sign: easy bruising, epistaxis, gum bleeding, menorrhagia,
post-partum hemorrhage, post-surgical or dental extraction bleeding
• Lab findings:
– BT prolonged, PT normal,
– APTT normal or prolonged

• Type I and III: reduced quantity of vWF

 TX: Cryo, DDAVP
A 27 y.o. male with type III vWD and a 2-
• Type II- defect in vWF molecule  TX: week duration of bleeding from the tongue.

Secondary Hemostatic Disorders
• Hemofilia A, B, C
• Vitamin K deficiency
– severe coagulation defect
– Required for synthesis of prothrombin and factors
VII, IX and X
• Parenchymal diseases of the liver
– Liver synthesizes several coagulation factors
• DIC (Mixed disorders)
Principles treatment of SHD
• Congenital anomaly: Substitute appropriate
coagulant-factor deficiency
• Acquired:
– Tx. Underlying disease / underlying causes
– Substitute Vit. K
– Substitute coagulant factors or Prothrombin-
complex concentrate
Hereditary deficiencies
• Hemophilia A: F.VIII • Hemophilia B: F.IX
deficiency deficiency
– Sex-linked recessive – Clinically indistinguishable from
– Hemarthroses, hematom are Hemophilia A
common – Sex-linked recessive
– Tx: F VIII : hRecombinant or cryo. – Need 50% preoperatively
– Need 100% levels preop, keep at – Prolonged PTT, normal PT
30% postop.
TX: Factor IX or FFP

• FFP: Every ml contains 1 Unit of F.VIII
• Cryoprecipitate : Each bag contains 125 Units of F.VIII.
Vitamin K Deficiency
• Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be absorbed in the
presence of bile salts.
• Vitamin K is required for the production of coagulation factors
in the liver (factors II, VII, IX, X).

• Vitamin K deficiency  severe coagulation defect

Liver Disease
• Coagulation Disorders in Liver Disease:
– Decreased production of coagulation proteins (II,VII,IX,X),
and fibrinogen (factor I) and factor V
– Some degree of vitamin K deficiency, due to loss of storage
sites; e.g: liver cirrhosis
– Hypercoagulable state and predisposed to developing DIC
or systemic fibrinolysis.
DIC: Consumption Coagulopathy
• Severe DIC were accompanied with severe shock, blood stasis, caused by
systemic infection especially gram-negative organisms.

• Widspread / diffuse intravascular thrombosis will result in consumption of

coagulation especially factors I, II, V, VIII and thrombocytopenia with
secondary bleeding.

• Laboratory findings:
↓ platelets ,↓ fibrinogen, ↓ factors II, V, VII and ↑ FDP

• Treatment:
-Treatment underlying disease.
-Platelets and FFP transfusion.
-Heparin is restricted to widespread thrombosis e.g. purpura fulminans .
-Exchange transfusion with fresh blood in neonates.
• Primary Fibrinolysis :
– excessive fibrinolysis caused by fibrinolytic enzyme (t-PA,
plasmin) in the circulation.
– e.g: thrombolytic treatment, APL (AML-M3), decreased
inhibitor (anti plasmin, PAI-1), Chronic liver disease

• Secondary Fibrinolysis: compensated response of DIC

Assessment of Fibrinolysis
• Circulating plasminogen activators or plasma: Euglobin lysis
time, t-PA activity, Plasmin-antiplasmin complex

• Proteolysis of coagulation factors by plasmin: PT, aPTT,

Fibrinogen, F.V, F.VIII

• Lysis of fibrin: FDP, D-Dimer,

• Fibrinolytic reactan consumption: Plasminogen, α2-

antiplasmin, PAI-1
Bleeding manifestation
• Ooze bleeding (primary fibrinolysis)
• Localized:
– Post operation bleeding
– Post invasive procedure bleeding
– Bleeding in place of IM injection
• Disseminated : Bleeding due to DIC (secondary
Principles treatment of Fibrinolysis

• Tx. Underlying disease

• Stop thrombolytic agent
• Give anti fibrinolytic agent
