Disturbed alveolar fibrin turnover during pneumonia is restricted to the site of infection
The European respiratory journal, Volume 24, Issue 5, 2004, Pages 786-789.
Severe infection is associated with profound alterations in the systemic haemostatic balance, with activation of coagulation and suppressed fibrinolysis. Within the alveolar compartment, similar disturbances have been described during pulmonary inflammation. The current authors investigated whether local haemostasis was influenced during ...More
