Abstract:We report the peri-operative management of a 32-year-old patient suffering from symptomatic hypofibrinogenaemia and factor XIII deficiency scheduled for caesarean section. Starting with an impaired fibrinogen (1.04 g x l(-1)) and factor XIII level (48%), fibrinogen and factor XIII administration was guided by point-of-care rotational thrombelastometry (ROTEM) to achieve normal whole blood coagulation, which allowed uncomplicated spinal anaesthesia and an uneventful surgical procedure. We conclude that rotational thrombelastometry may be suitable to guide administration of coagulation factors in patients with hereditary bleeding disorders and allow otherwise contraindicated neuraxial anaesthesia and surgery to proceed without increased risk of blood loss.
