Case 74 – part 2

So our second case starts with a phone call from the anaesthetic consultant in the pre op clinic.
He has a 20 year old man that needs a wide excision of a suspicious mole on his back. 
He has been looking through his medical history and the patient had a tonsillectomy aged 8 and had significant bleeding post operatively requiring a blood transfusion.

He also had a tooth extraction age 16 which required repacking and suturing due to bleeding.
The anaesthetist has done a coag screen pt 13 aptt 34 fib 3.5
