The Thromboelastograph has now been in use for over 50 years and has been largely regarded as a research tool. Increasing automation and refinement of the TEG and standardisation of results has led to decreased speculation regarding its validity as an assay of haemostasis. There are increasing clinical applications including cardiothoracic surgery and liver transplantation. This review discusses the principles and limitations of the TEG. It also focuses on the current clinical applications and potential research interests.
