Ecaterina Scarlatescu

Ecaterina Scarlatescu, MD, PhD  (Katy) graduated from the University of Medicine and Pharmacy Carol Davila of Bucharest in 2005 and trained in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care medicine at Fundeni Clinical Institute, Bucharest, Romania. After the residency, she continued to work in the Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care III at Fundeni Clinical Institute where she is appointed as Consultant. She is involved in clinical work (visceral and thoracic surgery, liver transplantation, care of the medical and surgical intensive care patients- both adults and pediatric patients), but also in research and training activities. She received a RTW Fellowship from the International Society on Hemostasis and Thrombosis in 2017, and trained for three months at Maastricht

University Medical Center in Maastricht, the Netherlands on the topics of the anticoagulant management in patients on extracorporeal life support and the use of thrombin generation tests. In 2018 she completed her PhD with the thesis “The complex assessment of coagulation disturbances in early sepsis and their prognostic significance”. Starting in 2018, she was appointed as a Co-Chair in the DIC Subcommittee of the International Society on Hemostasis and Thrombosis (ISTH).

Major research interests and current research projects include: the study of sepsis associated coagulopathy and sepsis induced DIC, the assessment of hemostasis in acute liver failure and end stage liver diseases, the assessment of coagulopathy in cirrhotic patients with sepsis and septic shock, bleeding management in liver transplantation, antithrombotic therapy monitoring in liver cirrhosis patients, extracorporeal blood purification therapies for supportive treatment of acute liver failure patients and as bridging to liver transplantation, the diagnostic and clinical implications of cirrhotic cardiomyopathy and postreperfusion syndrome during liver transplantation.
