Abstract
There is growing interest in viscoelastic hemostatic assays rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) and thromboelastography (TEG®) for trauma. Despite shared features, it is unknown whether their results are interchangeable and whether one is clinically superior in predicting mortality, blood transfusion and diagnosing early trauma coagulopathy.
