Severe perioperative bleeding is a challenge for the doctors and might become a drama for the patient.
Besides good team work a good knowledge about the physiology and pathophysiology of coagulation, diagnostic possibilities and therapeutic strategies are essential to succeed. In the recent years new insights of coagulation changed our understanding. At the moment the concept of the waterfall cascade is skipped and replaced by the so-called cellular model of coagulation. Newer diagnostic tools facilitate monitoring of coagulation at the bedside of the patient. In concert with this therapeutic concepts which adopted advantages of these diagnostic tools were developed. On the other side algorithms deriving from combat fields are more frequently used in civilian trauma which might lead to uncertainties over when to choose for which strategy.
