Fibrinogen Concentrate vs Cryoprecipitate

One of the most common hemostatic derangements in pediatric open- heart surgery is an acute acquired hypofibrinogenemia. This compromises fibrin clot generation and platelet aggregation, resulting in increased bleeding and allogenic blood transfusions. Currently, fresh frozen plasma and cryoprecipitate are used to supplement fibrinogen in pediatric cardiac patients. We propose that replacing cryoprecipitate with fibrinogen concentrate will be as effective in treating post-CPB ...
