Polytrauma is most often casused from explosive devices and accounts for about 65 percent of injuries to our military personnel. The patients who have polytrauma are at increased risk of developing either bleeding andor a clot in their veins which cause a life-threatening event known as venous thromboembolism VTE. We began enrollment of patients into the study on 2 February 2011. As of 1 October 2013, we have thus far analyzed plasma samples of over 426 patients and volunteers. In our preliminary analysis of thrombin generation and procagulant microvesicles noted after traumatic injury relative to healthy volunteers.
