In a series of 75 patients reviewed for injuries of the gastrointestinal tract, a consistent degree of hypokalemia and hypofibrinogenemia was noted. The degree of hypokalemia was associated with the severity of trauma and subsequent mortality. The degree of hypofibrinogenemia was associated more with mortality than with severity of trauma.
