Bleeding Complications and Reduction of Coagulation Factors
Bleeding diathesis during apheresis can be caused by anticoagulant drugs, removal of endogenous coagulating factors, or primary diseases.
Monitoring is necessary; activated coagulation time as well as direct measurement of fibrinogen and factor XIII levels is indispensable during plasmapheresis with albumin supplementation including double filtration plasmapheresis.
