Platelet and other tests followed sequentially for 14 days after operation

, : Platelet and other tests followed sequentially for 14 days after operation. Clinical and Laboratory Haematology 6(3): 239-245

Nineteen patients were studied twice before and sequentially from 1 h to 14 days after operations lasting about 1 h. Eighteen tests were carried out, ideally on all the nine occasions blood collections were planned. Only significant changes are summarized. Immediately after the operation the plasma PF4 and beta TG were raised in parallel suggesting some platelet 'release' had occurred. At this time platelet aggregation to ADP and collagen had decreased by 57% to 64% and the plasma cyclic AMP had doubled. Next day these abnormalities had returned towards normal. By day 2 the fibrinogen and the heparin neutralizing activity were maximal; they returned towards normal by day 14. On day 14, when presumably all platelets present at operation had been removed the new platelets were 53% more numerous and 9.5% smaller; they contained 23% less PF4 and 42% less serotonin and 5-HT uptake was decreased, but the total amount of 5-HT and PF4 in the circulation probably remained constant. In summary these operations transitorily upset platelet function for a few hours and the platelets formed postoperatively were abnormal.
