Objectives Liver has a major role in coagulation. The hemostatic derangements measured by the mostly used coagulation parameters as prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, and thrombocyte count do not always correlate with the bleeding associated with liver diseases and these factors do not measure the thrombotic risks. So, thromboelastography is used in new clinical and laboratory research. The aim of this study is to study the effect of different levels of hepatectomy on coagulation.
