what is the best coagulation test to be performed ( after stopping pradaxa ) before surgery to assure major bleeding is not a big risk risk?

You need to provide more information. What kind of surgery? Does it have a high risk of bleeding? What is your renal function? If it is good and the surgery is not a high bleeding risk then 24 hours after your last dose will typically be sufficient. However if the bleeding risk is high then your doctor will probably want to wait 2-4 days. If your renal function is poor and the surgery is not a high bleeding risk then 2-5 days after your last dose will typically be sufficient. However if the bleeding risk is high then your doctor will probably want to wait more than 5 days. Your need to talk to your doctor if you have not already had this discussion, especially since you state that you are having major surgery.
