The OBJECTIVE was to study the features of changes in the blood coagulation system that contribute to the development of postoperative complications in patients depending on the stage of non-tumor mechanical jaundice at admission.METHODS AND MATERIALS. A total of 537 patients with mechanical jaundice were examined and changes in the blood coagulation system were analyzed. Vascular-platelet hemostasis was characterized by the following tests: capillary resistance, the number of desquamated
... elial cells, the number of blood platelets. Plasma hemostasis was analyzed using activated partial thromboplastin time, plasma soluble fibrin level, thrombin time, prothrombin ratio, prothrombin index, and fibrinogen blood level. Then, XIIa-dependent fibrinolysis in the blood and the level of the fibrin D-dimer in the blood plasma were determined.RESULTS. It was found that in the first stage of mechanical jaundice, with cholestasis, there were no changes in blood coagulation system that go beyond the normal limits. In the second stage, during cytolysis of hepatocytes, hyperbilirubinemia and hypertransaminasemia contribute to the activation of platelet first, and then plasma hemostasis. In the third stage (cholangitis), the death of endotheliocytes increases and there is a deficiency of blood coagulation factors due to their consumption and increased fibrinolysis.CONCLUSION. In the stage of cholestasis in patients with non-tumors mechanical jaundice, the parameters of the coagulation system remain within the reference values. In the stage of cytolysis, as endotheliotoxicosis increases, platelet and plasma hemostasis begins to activate, which can lead to thrombosis and thromboembolism in vital organs. In the stage of cholangitis, further activation of plasma hemostasis causes hemorrhagic syndrome. The occurrence of the described disorders in blood coagulation system with the progression of MJ dictates the need to monitor the changes in the blood coagulation system and their correction for the prevention of intra-and postoperative complications.
