Detailed Description:

Three types of plasma are transfused in bleeding patients undergoing liver transplantation:

  • quarantined plasma,
  • methylene blue treated plasma,
  • solvent/detergent plasma. The main purpose is to show that the volume of methylene blue treated plasma consumed intraoperatively is equivalent to that of the 2 other types of plasma.

In addition, the correction of coagulation abnormalities are studied.
