The authors have examined the alterations in the coagulation pathway of plasma filtered through a polyester filter coated by a hydrophilic polymer. The activation of the coagulation pathway was evaluated by measuring prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, coagulation factors and fibrinopeptide A. The results obtained demonstrate that the examined filter does not induce significative activation of the coagulation pathway.
