  Other Adverse Events


  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
  1. lower than expected incidence of VTE events
  2. Control group patients were followed for 5 days, while TEG-guided group was followed as long as in SICU
  3. adherence to VTE prophylaxis with Daltaparin was significantly low in the TEG-guided group
