A 29-year-old woman, two years post-ileojejunal bypass, developed a serious coagulopathy. Studies utilizing heparin, epsilon-aminocaproic acid, and plasma, in vivo, indicated that the coagulation abnormalities were multiple in origin. Correction of most of the abnormalities permitted revision of bypass which led rapidly to total permanent correction of the coagulopathy.
