Description: Acquired hypofibrinogenemia, which is the most frequent perioperative hemostatic disorder, should be preferably diagnosed by means of viscoelastic testing, and should be preferably treated by administering fibrinogen concentrate / Pathogen Reduced Cryoprecipitated Fibrinogen Complex. This extremely fast ‘modern‘ management is capable of reducing bleeding and consequently reducing transfusion requirements. The ‘historic approach‘ of using lengthy plasma fibrinogen testing, often accompanied by empiric plasma transfusion (which does not contain sufficient amounts of fibrinogen), and finally thawing cryoprecipitate is hampering a fast workaround. As a consequence, it will prolong the time of coagulopathic bleeding, it will increase transfusion requirements, and as such can’t be considered to be a valid option for PBM.
