Table 4 Examples of TEG response to different procoagulant states

From: Global assays of hemostasis in the diagnostics of hypercoagulation and evaluation of thrombosis risk

Procoagulant state Number of patients in study group TEG version Data range in control group, mean ± SD unless otherwise indicated Data range in group with hypercoagulation, mean ± SD unless otherwise indicated Significance Predictive value Reference Comments
Patients with acute ischemic stroke 93-Unfavorable outcome evaluatewd by modified Rankin Scale within a year 91-Favorable outcome Citrate plasma was mixed with kaolin, and loaded in a heparinise-coated cup means ± SE MA, mm 63.2 ± 0.5 means ± SE MA, mm 66.1 ± 0.6 <0.001 Prediction of unfavorable outcome At higher tertile of MA OR = 1.192 [92] Prospective study.
