Perinatal arterial ischemic stroke (PAIS) is an important cause of pediatric morbidity and mortality. The etiology of PAIS remains unknown. Several maternal-neonatal disorders, and especially prothrombotic risk factors, have been reported in infants with perinatal stroke (PS). Rotation thromboelastometry (ROTEM) can analyze the coagulation system, from the beginning of coagulation, through clot formation, and ending with fibrinolysis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the hypercoagulability state in PAIS patients using ROTEM.
