Alimentary Lipemia and the Coagulability of Blood
Analysis by Thrombelastography and Silicone Clotting Time
The effect of alimentary lipemia on the coagulation of blood has been studied by means of thrombelastography as a new approach to this problem. Our observations revealed no acceleration of blood coagulation during the phase of alimentary lipemia by this method, which is one of the few technics capable of demonstrating a state of hypercoagulability.
