Abstract

Background: Thrombocytopenia after cardiac operations is a common event in both adult and pediatric patients. Late thrombocytopenia (LTCP) is a less common event that is still without a well-recognized cause. This study explores the role of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) and other factors (complexity of the operation, temperature management, and drug use) in determining LTCP. Methods: We conducted an observational study of 63 consecutive patients aged
