In this study the authors analyse hemostatic problems in surgery, with particular reference to the perioperative management of the patient. They examine the numerous factors giving rise to hemorrhagic and thrombotic complications, namely, the hemostatic technique adopted, the use of drainages, patient risk factors, pharmacological prophylaxis, etc. Prevention of bleeding, however, depends essentially on adequate preparation of the patient at surgery and on the surgeon's skill and experience.
