Blood Coagulation Disorders, Inherited: Hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders that occur as a consequence of inherited abnormalities in blood coagulation.Blood Coagulation Disorders: Hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders that occur as a consequence of abnormalities in blood coagulation due to a variety of factors such as COAGULATION PROTEIN DISORDERS; BLOOD PLATELET DISORDERS; BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS or nutritional conditions.Blood Coagulation: The process of the interaction of BLOOD COAGULATION FACTORS that results in an insoluble FIBRIN clot.Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation: A disorder characterized by procoagulant substances entering the general circulation causing a systemic thrombotic process. The activation of the clotting mechanism may arise from any of a number of disorders. A majority of the patients manifest skin lesions, sometimes leading to PURPURA FULMINANS.Afibrinogenemia: A deficiency or absence of FIBRINOGEN in the blood.Blood Coagulation Tests: Laboratory tests for evaluating the individual's clotting mechanism.Hemorrhagic Disorders: Spontaneous or near spontaneous bleeding caused by a defect in clotting mechanisms (BLOOD COAGULATION DISORDERS) or another abnormality causing a structural flaw in the blood vessels (HEMOSTATIC DISORDERS).Prothrombin Time: Clotting time of PLASMA recalcified in the presence of excess TISSUE THROMBOPLASTIN. Factors measured are FIBRINOGEN; PROTHROMBIN; FACTOR V; FACTOR VII; and FACTOR X. It is used for monitoring anticoagulant therapy with COUMARINS.Blood Coagulation Factors: Endogenous substances, usually proteins, that are involved in the blood coagulation process.Hemophilia A: The classic hemophilia resulting from a deficiency of factor VIII. It is an inherited disorder of blood coagulation characterized by a permanent tendency to hemorrhage.Partial Thromboplastin Time: The time required for the appearance of FIBRIN strands following the mixing of PLASMA with phospholipid platelet substitute (e.g., crude cephalins, soybean phosphatides). It is a test of the intrinsic pathway (factors VIII, IX, XI, and XII) and the common pathway (fibrinogen, prothrombin, factors V and X) of BLOOD COAGULATION. It is used as a screening test and to monitor HEPARIN therapy.Tracheotomy: Surgical incision of the trachea.Factor X Deficiency: Blood coagulation disorder usually inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, though it can be acquired. It is characterized by defective activity in both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways, impaired thromboplastin time, and impaired prothrombin consumption.Factor V Deficiency: A deficiency of blood coagulation factor V (known as proaccelerin or accelerator globulin or labile factor) leading to a rare hemorrhagic tendency known as Owren's disease or parahemophilia. It varies greatly in severity. Factor V deficiency is an autosomal recessive trait. (Dorland, 27th ed)Factor V: Heat- and storage-labile plasma glycoprotein which accelerates the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin in blood coagulation. Factor V accomplishes this by forming a complex with factor Xa, phospholipid, and calcium (prothrombinase complex). Deficiency of factor V leads to Owren's disease.Thromboplastin: Constituent composed of protein and phospholipid that is widely distributed in many tissues. It serves as a cofactor with factor VIIa to activate factor X in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation.Fibrinogen: Plasma glycoprotein clotted by thrombin, composed of a dimer of three non-identical pairs of polypeptide chains (alpha, beta, gamma) held together by disulfide bonds. Fibrinogen clotting is a sol-gel change involving complex molecular arrangements: whereas fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin to form polypeptides A and B, the proteolytic action of other enzymes yields different fibrinogen degradation products.Hemorrhage: Bleeding or escape of blood from a vessel.Postoperative Hemorrhage: Hemorrhage following any surgical procedure. It may be immediate or delayed and is not restricted to the surgical wound.Factor Xa: Activated form of factor X that participates in both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways of blood coagulation. It catalyzes the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin in conjunction with other cofactors.Factor VII: Heat- and storage-stable plasma protein that is activated by tissue thromboplastin to form factor VIIa in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. The activated form then catalyzes the activation of factor X to factor Xa.Factor X: Storage-stable glycoprotein blood coagulation factor that can be activated to factor Xa by both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways. A deficiency of factor X, sometimes called Stuart-Prower factor deficiency, may lead to a systemic coagulation disorder.Prothrombin: A plasma protein that is the inactive precursor of thrombin. It is converted to thrombin by a prothrombin activator complex consisting of factor Xa, factor V, phospholipid, and calcium ions. Deficiency of prothrombin leads to hypoprothrombinemia.Factor IX: Storage-stable blood coagulation factor acting in the intrinsic pathway. Its activated form, IXa, forms a complex with factor VIII and calcium on platelet factor 3 to activate factor X to Xa. Deficiency of factor IX results in HEMOPHILIA B (Christmas Disease).Thrombelastography: Use of a thrombelastograph, which provides a continuous graphic record of the physical shape of a clot during fibrin formation and subsequent lysis.Factor VIIa: Activated form of factor VII. Factor VIIa activates factor X in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation.Thrombin: An enzyme formed from PROTHROMBIN that converts FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN.Factor XIII: A fibrin-stabilizing plasma enzyme (TRANSGLUTAMINASES) that is activated by THROMBIN and CALCIUM to form FACTOR XIIIA. It is important for stabilizing the formation of the fibrin polymer (clot) which culminates the coagulation cascade.Whole Blood Coagulation Time: The time required by whole blood to produce a visible clot.Factor VIII: Blood-coagulation factor VIII. Antihemophilic factor that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. Factor VIII is produced in the liver and acts in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. It serves as a cofactor in factor X activation and this action is markedly enhanced by small amounts of thrombin.Factor XIa: Activated form of factor XI. In the intrinsic pathway, Factor XI is activated to XIa by factor XIIa in the presence of cofactor HMWK; (HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT KININOGEN). Factor XIa then activates factor IX to factor IXa in the presence of calcium.Fibrinolysis: The natural enzymatic dissolution of FIBRIN.Blood Coagulation Factor Inhibitors: Substances, usually endogenous, that act as inhibitors of blood coagulation. They may affect one or multiple enzymes throughout the process. As a group, they also inhibit enzymes involved in processes other than blood coagulation, such as those from the complement system, fibrinolytic enzyme system, blood cells, and bacteria.Coagulants: Agents that cause clotting.Antithrombin III: A plasma alpha 2 glycoprotein that accounts for the major antithrombin activity of normal plasma and also inhibits several other enzymes. It is a member of the serpin superfamily.Hemostasis: The process which spontaneously arrests the flow of BLOOD from vessels carrying blood under pressure. It is accomplished by contraction of the vessels, adhesion and aggregation of formed blood elements (eg. ERYTHROCYTE AGGREGATION), and the process of BLOOD COAGULATION.Protein C: A vitamin-K dependent zymogen present in the blood, which, upon activation by thrombin and thrombomodulin exerts anticoagulant properties by inactivating factors Va and VIIIa at the rate-limiting steps of thrombin formation.Factor IXa: Activated form of factor IX. This activation can take place via the intrinsic pathway by the action of factor XIa and calcium, or via the extrinsic pathway by the action of factor VIIa, thromboplastin, and calcium. Factor IXa serves to activate factor X to Xa by cleaving the arginyl-leucine peptide bond in factor X.Hydroxyethyl Starch Derivatives: Starches that have been chemically modified so that a percentage of OH groups are substituted with 2-hydroxyethyl ether groups.Bipolar Disorder: A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.Thrombin Time: Clotting time of PLASMA mixed with a THROMBIN solution. It is a measure of the conversion of FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN, which is prolonged by AFIBRINOGENEMIA, abnormal fibrinogen, or the presence of inhibitory substances, e.g., fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products, or HEPARIN. BATROXOBIN, a thrombin-like enzyme unaffected by the presence of heparin, may be used in place of thrombin.Factor XIIa: Activated form of factor XII. In the initial event in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation, kallikrein (with cofactor HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT KININOGEN) cleaves factor XII to XIIa. Factor XIIa is then further cleaved by kallikrein, plasmin, and trypsin to yield smaller factor XII fragments (Hageman-Factor fragments). These fragments increase the activity of prekallikrein to kallikrein but decrease the procoagulant activity of factor XII.Anticoagulants: Agents that prevent clotting.Fibrin: A protein derived from FIBRINOGEN in the presence of THROMBIN, which forms part of the blood clot.Plasma Substitutes: Any liquid used to replace blood plasma, usually a saline solution, often with serum albumins, dextrans or other preparations. These substances do not enhance the oxygen- carrying capacity of blood, but merely replace the volume. They are also used to treat dehydration.Factor XI: Stable blood coagulation factor involved in the intrinsic pathway. The activated form XIa activates factor IX to IXa. Deficiency of factor XI is often called hemophilia C.Factor XII: Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.Factor XI Deficiency: A hereditary deficiency of blood coagulation factor XI (also known as plasma thromboplastin antecedent or PTA or antihemophilic factor C) resulting in a systemic blood-clotting defect called hemophilia C or Rosenthal's syndrome, that may resemble classical hemophilia.Vitamin K: A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.Mental Disorders: Psychiatric illness or diseases manifested by breakdowns in the adaptational process expressed primarily as abnormalities of thought, feeling, and behavior producing either distress or impairment of function.Antithrombins: Endogenous factors and drugs that directly inhibit the action of THROMBIN, usually by blocking its enzymatic activity. They are distinguished from INDIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITORS, such as HEPARIN, which act by enhancing the inhibitory effects of antithrombins.Factor XII Deficiency: An absence or reduced level of blood coagulation factor XII. It normally occurs in the absence of patient or family history of hemorrhagic disorders and is marked by prolonged clotting time.Fibrin Fibrinogen Degradation Products: Soluble protein fragments formed by the proteolytic action of plasmin on fibrin or fibrinogen. FDP and their complexes profoundly impair the hemostatic process and are a major cause of hemorrhage in intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis.Anxiety Disorders: Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.Mood Disorders: Those disorders that have a disturbance in mood as their predominant feature.Factor VIIIa: Activated form of factor VIII. The B-domain of factor VIII is proteolytically cleaved by thrombin to form factor VIIIa. Factor VIIIa exists as a non-covalent dimer in a metal-linked (probably calcium) complex and functions as a cofactor in the enzymatic activation of factor X by factor IXa. Factor VIIIa is similar in structure and generation to factor Va.Thrombosis: Formation and development of a thrombus or blood clot in the blood vessel.Blood Platelets: Non-nucleated disk-shaped cells formed in the megakaryocyte and found in the blood of all mammals. They are mainly involved in blood coagulation.Factor Va: Activated form of factor V. It is an essential cofactor for the activation of prothrombin catalyzed by factor Xa.

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) clotting activity in human plasma in health and disease in various animal plasmas. (1/738)

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) is an agent in normal human plasma that corrects the impaired in vitro surface-mediated plasma reactions of blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and kinin generation observed in Fitzgerald trait plasma. To assess the possible pathophysiologic role of Fitzgerald factor, its titer was measured by a functional clot-promoting assay. Mean +/- SD in 42 normal adults was 0.99+/-0.25 units/ml, one unit being the activity in 1 ml of normal pooled plasma. No difference in titer was noted between normal men and women, during pregnancy, or after physical exercise. Fitzgerald factor activity was significantly reduced in the plasmas of eight patients with advanced hepatic cirrhosis (0.40+/-0.09 units/ml) and of ten patients with disseminated intravascular coagulation (0.60+/-0.30 units/ml), but was normal in plasmas of patients with other congenital clotting factor deficiencies, nephrotic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, or sarcoidosis, or under treatment with warfarin. The plasmas of 21 mammalian species tested appeared to contain Fitzgerald factor activity, but those of two avian, two repitilian, and one amphibian species did not correct the coagulant defect in Fitzgerald trait plasmas.  (+info)

Coagulation and fibrinolysis in intact hydatidiform molar pregnancy. (2/738)

Tests of coagulation, fibrinolysis, and platelet function were performed in 17 patients with intact molar pregnancies. Women with intact molar pregnancies had higher fibrinogen factor VIII, and fibrinogen degradation products, concentrations and lower prothrombin, factor X, plasminogen, and plasminogen activator concentrations than controls with normal pregnancies. They also had reduced platelet counts and thromboelastographic values, which indicated hypocoagulability. These results suggest that intravascular coagulation occurs in intact hydatidiform molar pregnancies.  (+info)

Values of three coagulation screening tests of precolostral calves. (3/738)

Prothrombin times, partial thromboplastin times and platelet counts were performed to determine normal values and to screen for coagulation defects of precolostral calves. The precolostral calves were in two groups: one group of a few calves was tested two years before the second larger group. The results for both groups were similar. The tests were performed on postcolostral calves and on mature cows to compare their values with those of precolostral calves. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the first group were 18.8 seconds and 54.8 seconds respectively. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the second group were 18.8 seconds and 50.8 seconds respectively. The mean platelet count was 422,400/cmm for the first group and 482,800/cmm for the second group.  (+info)

Aetiologies and prognosis of Chinese patients with deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities. (4/738)

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower extremities is not frequently encountered in Oriental patients. We investigated its aetiology and prognosis in 143 patients (65 males, 78 females), presenting to the National Taiwan University Hospital over 4.3 years, diagnosed by colour Doppler ultrasonography. Swelling and pain of the lower extremities were the most frequent presenting symptoms. The left femoropopliteal veins were more frequently involved than other parts of the lower extremities. In these patients, malignancy with or without intravenous catheterization was the most frequent cause (39 patients, 27%). Other common aetiologies included coagulopathy (29 patients, 20%), immobilization (24 patients, 17%) and catheter-related (13 patients, 9%). No definite aetiology could be determined in 37 patients (26%). During follow-up, 27 patients (19%) died, mostly with malignancy. Pulmonary embolism was noted in 16 patients and was not significantly directly related to death. Compared to similar studies in Caucasian patients, there were significant differences in the aetiology of DVT, with malignancy and coagulopathy more common in these Chinese patients.  (+info)

Inflammation, sepsis, and coagulation. (5/738)

The molecular links between inflammation and coagulation are unquestioned. Inflammation promotes coagulation by leading to intravascular tissue factor expression, eliciting the expression of leukocyte adhesion molecules on the intravascular cell surfaces, and down regulating the fibrinolytic and protein C anticoagulant pathways. Thrombin, in turn, can promote inflammatory responses. This creates a cycle that logically progresses to vascular injury as occurs in septic shock. Most complex systems are regulated by product inhibition. This inflammation-coagulation cycle seems to follow this same principle with the protein C pathway serving as the regulatory mechanism. The molecular basis by which the protein C pathway functions as an anticoagulant is relatively well established compared to the mechanisms involved in regulating inflammation. As one approach to identifying the mechanisms involved in regulating inflammation, we set out to identify novel receptors that could modulate the specificity of APC in a manner analogous to the mechanisms by which thrombomodulin modulates thrombin specificity. This approach led to the identification of an endothelial cell protein C receptor (EPCR). To understand the mechanism, we obtained a crystal structure of APC (lacking the Gla domain). The crystal structure reveals a deep groove in a location analogous to anion binding exosite 1 of thrombin, the location of interaction for thrombomodulin, platelet thrombin receptor and fibrinogen. Thrombomodulin blocks the activation of platelets and fibrinogen without blocking reactivity with chromogenic substrates or inhibitors. Similarly, in solution, EPCR blocks factor Va inactivation without modulating reactivity with protease inhibitors. Thus, these endothelial cell receptors for the protein C system share many properties in common including the ability to be modulated by inflammatory cytokines. Current studies seek to identify the substrate for the APC-EPCR complex as the next step in elucidating the mechanisms by which the protein C pathway modulates the response to injury and inflammation.  (+info)

Systemic lupus erythematosus-associated catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome occurring after typhoid fever: a possible role of Salmonella lipopolysaccharide in the occurrence of diffuse vasculopathy-coagulopathy. (6/738)

We report a case of well-documented typhoid fever in a 30-year-old woman with inactive systemic lupus erythematosus with asymptomatic lupus anticoagulant and high-titer anticardiolipin antibody (aCL). Despite prompt eradication of the Salmonella typhi obtained with appropriate antibiotic therapy, multiple organ system dysfunction occurred. The central nervous system was involved, with ischemic infarcts in the occipital lobes. High-dose corticosteroid therapy failed to improve the neurologic manifestations, which responded to repeated plasmapheresis. A sharp fall in aCL and anti-beta2-glycoprotein I antibody titers was recorded before the start of plasmapheresis. At the same time, IgM and IgG antibodies to Salmonella group O:9 lipopolysaccharide became detectable; the IgM antibodies disappeared within 4 months, whereas the IgG antibodies remained detectable during the next 13 months. Despite treatment with high-dose corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis developed, leading to chronic renal failure. There is convincing evidence of a link between the S. typhi infection and the ensuing catastrophic syndrome in this patient, probably precipitated by bacterial antigens.  (+info)

Incidence and possible reasons for discordant results between positive FDP and negative D-dimer latex assays in clinical specimens. (7/738)

In general, FDP and D-dimer values have a correlation in clinical conditions associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation(DIC) or coagulation activation. However, there are some patients with discordant results who demonstrate elevated FDP and negative D-dimer results by latex agglutination assays. The incidence and possible reasons for the discordance between FDP and D-dimer results were investigated through simultaneous measurements (n = 763) from clinical patients with suspected DIC or coagulation activation. 24.8% (189/763) of samples with elevated FDP were negative for D-dimer assays by the latex agglutination method. Further detailed analysis on randomly-selected discordant samples (n = 41) revealed that the most common reason for the discordance was the lower sensitivity of the semiquantitative latex agglutination method for D-dimer, compared with quantitative enzyme or other latex immunoassay. The other contributing factors to the discordance were accelerated fibrinogenolysis without secondary fibrinolysis, elevated soluble fibrin monomer and rheumatoid factor.  (+info)

Review: infectious diseases and coagulation disorders. (8/738)

Infection, both bacterial and nonbacterial, may be associated with coagulation disorders, resulting in disseminated intravascular coagulation and multiorgan failure. In the last few decades a series of in vivo and in vitro studies has provided more insight into the pathogenetic mechanisms and the role of cytokines in these processes. Because of the growing interest in this field, the complexity of the subject, and the fact that many physicians must deal with a variety of infections, current data are reviewed on the association between infectious diseases and the coagulation system. Novel therapeutic intervention strategies that will probably become available in the near future are mentioned, along with those of special interest for infectious disorders for which only supportive care can be given.  (+info)

The trauma field is aflutter with research and practice changes involving trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC), the biochemical response to injury, also known as acute traumatic coagulopathy and acute coagulopathy of trauma-shock. Discoveries are still being made in this revitalized area of investigation, and old notions about the coagulation process are being sidelined, along with traditional measures of coagulation. The upshot for laboratorians is, if viscoelastic tests such as thromboelastography (TEG) and thromboelastometry (ROTEM), are not already part of your coagulation testing armamentarium, chances are they soon will be.

Abstract: Managing hemorrhagic shock is complex and difficult, and hemorrhage remains the leading cause of preventable deaths among trauma patients. There is an on-going debate on the best resusciative strategy. Many intensive care units practice massive transfusion protocols with resuscitation fluids composed of Packed Red Blood Cells (PRBC), Fresh Frozen Plasma and platelets in equal ratios, thus resembling whole blood. Some studies reported a great survival benefit from this relative high proportion of FFP, but most of this benefit has later been shown to be due to a survival bias. Trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC) is present in 10-34 percent of trauma-patients at admission to the intensive care unit. A feared complication to massive hemorrhage includes the so-called «viscous cycle» of hypothermia, acidosis and coagulopathy, which is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. To understand the pathophysiology behind this, knowledge of hemostasis is needed. Endothelium, platelets and ...
Scott syndrome is a rare congenital bleeding disorder that is due to a defect in a platelet mechanism required for blood coagulation. Normally when a vascular injury occurs, platelets are activated and phosphatidylserine (PS) in the inner leaflet of the platelet membrane is transported to the outer leaflet of the platelet membrane, where it provides a binding site for plasma protein complexes that are involved in the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin, such as factor VIIIa-IXa (tenase) and factor Va-Xa (prothrombinase). In Scott syndrome, the mechanism for translocating PS to the platelet membrane is defective, resulting in impaired thrombin formation. A similar defect in PS translocation has also been demonstrated in Scott syndrome red blood cells and Epstein-Barr virus transformed lymphocytes, suggesting that the defect in Scott syndrome reflects a mutation in a stem cell that affects multiple hematological lineages. The basis for the defect in PS translocation is, at present, unknown. A ...
CHEDDIE, S; MUCKART, D J J e HARDCASTLE, T C. Base deficit as an early marker of coagulopathy in trauma. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2013, vol.51, n.3, pp.88-90. ISSN 2078-5151.. BACKGROUND: The acute coagulopathy of trauma is associated with hypoperfusion, metabolic acidosis and an increased mortality rate. Biochemical markers of hypoperfusion, namely base deficit (BD) and lactate, are commonly used to assess the degree of hypoperfusion. Early identification of hypoperfusion and acidosis using BD and lactate may help predict the development of coagulopathy in trauma patients and direct therapy. OBJECTIVES: To identify whether a correlation exists between BD, lactate, injury severity, early-onset coagulopathy and mortality. METHODS: A retrospective chart analysis was undertaken of patients transferred directly from scene to the level I trauma unit at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital, Durban, South Africa, from 2007 to 2008. Patients with evidence of hypoperfusion were selected. ...

Blood coagulation, or hemostasis, is necessary to prevent excessive hemorrhage from damaged blood vessels. Under normal conditions, clotting factors in the bloodstream spontaneously interact with damaged vessels to create a blood clot that plugs the leaking vessel. Obviously, inadequate blood clotting is harmful in that even minor vessel damage can lead to excessive blood loss. Overactive clotting is also detrimental because it will lead to thrombogenesis (i.e., the abnormal formation of blood clots, or thrombi).1 Thrombus formation may lead directly to vessel occlusion and tissue infarction. Also, a piece of a thrombus may dislodge, creating an embolism that causes infarction elsewhere in the body, such as in the lungs or brain. ...

Trauma is a major cause of death and disability worldwide [1], and since hemorrhage accounts for approximately 40% of all trauma fatalities. this is a leading cause of potentially preventable deaths [2]. When death is not immediately due to exsanguination, bleeding and prolonged shock increase the risk of multiple organ failure and late mortality [2, 3]. The exact mechanism(s) responsible for death in trauma patients remain elusive but much attention has been given to coagulopathy since this is an independent predictor of mortality [4] that is present already at the scene of an accident [5, 6] and upon arrival at the emergency department [7, 8].. Different drivers of trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC) have been proposed by different groups of researchers [9]: Some advocate that TIC reflects disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with a fibrinolytic (hemorrhagic) phenotype based on the observation that trauma DIC patients display prolonged prothrombin time (PT), have low fibrinogen and ...
This prospective multicenter study investigated the association of the course of coagulation abnormalities with initial computed tomography (CT) characteristics and outcome in patients with isolated traumatic brain injury (TBI). Patient demographics, coagulation parameters, CT characteristics, and outcome data of moderate and severe TBI patients without major extracranial injuries were prospectively collected. Coagulopathy was defined as absent, early but temporary, delayed, or early and sustained. Delayed/sustained coagulopathy was associated with a higher incidence of disturbed pupillary responses (40% versus 27%; p|0.001) and higher Traumatic Coma Data Bank (TCDB) CT classification (5 (2-5) versus 2 (1-5); p=0.003) than in patients without or with early, but short-lasting coagulopathy. The initial CT of patients with delayed/sustained coagulopathy more frequently showed intracranial hemorrhage and signs of raised intracranial pressure (ICP) compared to patients with early coagulopathy only. This was
Blood coagulation disorders are genetic disorders that result in either hypercoagulability (where the blood clots too easily) or excessive bleeding.
Orthotopic liver transplantation is frequently associated with a complex coagulation disorder, influencing the outcome of the procedure. In this respect, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) had been suggested to be of causative importance for bleeding complications after reperfusion of the liver graft. In 10 consecutive patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantations, we studied the occurrence of two phagocyte proteinases of different origin in the graft liver perfus-ate and in systemic blood during the operation, as well as their effects on hemostasis. As compared with plasma samples taken at the end of the anhepatic phase, highly significant increases of cathepsin B and thrombin-anti-thrombin III complexes (TAT), as well as highly significant decreases in antithrombin III, protein C, and C1-inhibitor were observed in graft liver perfusate. Von Willebrand factor and fibrinogen were slightly decreased, whereas the elastase-alpha1 proteinase inhibitor complexes (EPI) were elevated. ...
Hematological disorders underlie a small proportion of all ischemic strokes. The association of these coagulation abnormalities with ischemic stroke is not always clear. The etiology of stroke still remains uncertain in a large number of cases and proper screening for coagulation abnormalities and the discovery of new coagulation disorders will probably increase the rate of strokes attributable to these causes. Since large case-control studies with unselected and consecutive stroke patients from different ethnic origins have not yet been performed to determine the role of coagulation abnormalities in ischemic stroke, our knowledge is dependent on case reports and small series of mostly younger patients. Extensive hematologic evaluation of unselected stroke patients will likely yield little useful information and be too expensive. Every stroke patients needs a careful evaluation, and in selected cases, this should include coagulation parameters. Patients with unexplained strokes after a careful
Essentials The response of thromboelastometry (ROTEM) parameters to therapy is unknown. We prospectively recruited hemorrhaging trauma patients in six level-1 trauma centres in Europe. Blood products and pro-coagulants prevent further derangement of ROTEM results. ROTEM algorithms can be used to treat and monitor trauma induced coagulopathy. Summary: Background Rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM) can detect trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC) and is used in transfusion algorithms. The response of ROTEM to transfusion therapy is unknown. Objectives To determine the response of ROTEM profiles to therapy in bleeding trauma patients. Patients/Methods A prospective multicenter study in bleeding trauma patients (receiving ≥ 4 red blood cell [RBC] units) was performed. Blood was drawn in the emergency department, after administration of 4, 8 and 12 RBC units and 24 h post-injury. The response of ROTEM to plasma, platelets (PLTs), tranexamic acid (TXA) and fibrinogen products was evaluated in the ...

The overall aim of the thesis was to add some pieces to the etiological puzzle of LCPD with special focus on vascular origin and hyperactivity. Furthermore we wanted to evaluate some consequences of LCPD in adulthood.. Swedish registry data were used to identify a cohort of patients with the diagnosis of LCPD. This cohort was compared with a general population- based cohort without LCPD to assess the relative risk of cardiovascular diseases, blood or coagulation defects, injury, ADHD, depression and mortality.. In a clinical study we assessed health-related quality of life (EQ-5D-3L), physical activity level (IPAQ) and screened for ADHD (ASRSv1.1) in 116 patients with a history of LCPD who were diagnosed or treated in Uppsala University Hospital between 1978 and 1995.. The results confirmed our hypothesis: Patients with a history of LCPD had a 1.7-fold higher risk of cardiovascular diseases, and a 1.4-fold higher risk for blood or coagulation defects compared with gender- and age-matched ...
APL at its onset is associated with a complex coagulopathy in most patients. This acquired bleeding diathesis results in substantial mortality during the first month of induction, a problem that persists to this day despite the improved cure rates brought on by the addition of ATRA to cytotoxic chemotherapy. Prompt use of ATRA and aggressive blood product repletion with cryoprecipitate and platelet transfusions in all patients have been the mainstay of treatment of the often severe coagulation defects encountered in this population; however, there is a paucity of knowledge about how to identify the individuals most at risk of lethal bleeding. In particular, there is a lack of consistency between reports in terms of which baseline patient characteristics are independent predictors of HD.. Performance status emerged as a predictor of HD of borderline statistical significance in multivariate analysis, although, to our knowledge, this variable had not been frequently reported in the past to be ...
Click the title to purchase the article.. Background:. "Viscoelastic tests (VETs) such as thromboelastography, rotational thromboelastography, and the Sonoclot Analyzer assess the entire process of clot formation through dissolution in real-time, and may provide additional therapeutic value to conventional laboratory coagulation tests. With the ability to obtain rapid results and identify specific coagulopathies, VETs has been examined in a variety of clinical scenarios, including cardiac surgery, trauma, obstetric emergencies, and liver transplant. Conclusion: This review provides a summary of clinical trials utilizing VETs in the aforementioned clinical scenarios, and suggests that VETs have demonstrated a capability to identify coagulopathies, utility in guiding algorithms to reduce the amount of transfusions, and a limited ability to predict bleeding events or mortality."1. ...

After severe polytrauma the dynamic process of coagulation may deteriorate towards a trauma-induced coagulopathy (TIC) promoting a dramatic increase in morbidity and mortality. Recent evidence suggests that microparticles (MPs) play a pivotal role at the interface between cellular and plasmatic coagulation systems. However, the impact of MPs on functional coagulation has not been clarified yet in the setting of traumatic injuries. We assessed the temporal patterns of circulating MP concentrations including their cellular origin in the context of clinical presentation and global coagulation assays. Blood samples from 22 consecutive polytrauma patients (ISS ≥16) from 2015 were collected at hospital admission, after 24 and 72 h and compared to those from healthy individuals and minor injured patients with isolated extremity fractures. Flow cytometry (BD Accuri C6; Heidelberg/Germany) was used to determine MP concentrations and cellular origin using cell-specific markers (platelet derived (PDMP): CD42b+,
A 27 year old male was brought to the ER with illness and diaphoresis. Upon admission he was diagnosed with acute liver and kidney injuries. After admission to ICU, he was diagnosed with "severe liver injury, severe coagulopathy, acute kidney injury, acute respiratory failure, hypoxemia, severe anion gap metabolic and lactic acidosis". The patients condition deteriorated rapidly over the next half day and he experienced cardiac arrest and "pulseless electrical activity and poor oxygenation secondary to acute respiratory distress syndrome likely the result of aspiration and pulmonary contusions following chest compressions". Failure of the circulatory system, respiratory system and central nervous system followed along with severe metabolic derangement ...
Liver transplant is a life-saving procedure in patients with end-stage liver disease. However, this procedure may be associated with transmission of various deficiencies of proteins synthesized by the liver. Factor I (fibrinogen) deficiency is one of the rare inherited coagulation disorders with an extremely low risk of transmission by liver transplant. We report a case of a patient with no inherited coagulation disorders but who demonstrated disturbance of fibrinogen after liver transplant. This case highlights the ever-present risk of donor-to-recipient disease transmission during transplant and emphasizes the difficulty in procuring organs from donors in which standard blood tests are insufficient to determine the likelihood of this event ...

There are over 40 known congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs), and a reformulation of their nomenclature has been proposed by Dr. Jaak Jaeken, who described the first CDG (Jaeken et al, 2009, Biochim Biophys Acta 1792:825-6). A new CDG has now been identified in several families (Cantagrel et al, 2010, Cell 142:203-17). Patients present notably with neurological disease, coagulation defects and skin findings (ichtiosis, dermatitis). By linkage and sequencing of candidate genes, mutations were found in SRD5A3 , encoding an enzyme which converts polyprenol to dolichol, a membrane anchor for oligosaccharides, thus shedding new light on the earliest steps of protein N-glycosylation..

The hemophilias are generally classified as hemophilia A and B. Hemophilia A and B occur only in males, and may be of variable degrees of severity. Hemophilia A is about 4 times as frequent as hemophilia B, so most of the coagulation disorders seen by SSA are hemophilia A.. The clinical manifestations seen with the hemophilias involve easy bruising, hematuria, bleeding with minor trauma, bleeding following dental procedures, and bleeding into joints (hemarthroses). A hemarthrosis would not be fatal, although very destructive to a joint. Joint deformity is a common problem in the hemophilia claims seen by the SSA. Intracranial bleeding from a bump on the head, however, could be lethal.. In hemophilia A and B, there is a normal prothrombin time (the time it takes plasma to clot after addition of tissue factor), normal bleeding time, and normal fibrinogen level (fibrogen converts into fibrin, a protein that forms the "mesh" that clots over a wound site during blood coagulation). There is a ...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to measure contemporaneously HCV-RNA load, HIV-RNA load and CD4+ lymphocyte count in HCV/HIV coinfected patients with coagulopathy and to examine the relationship between these parameters and the liver failure. DESIGN AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was performed on 54 patients with severe coagulopathy: 39 HCV/HIV coinfected and 15 HCV+/HIV- comparable for age and HCV exposure time. HCV-RNA and HIV-RNA load, CD4+ lymphocyte count, biochemical and ultrasonographic parameters were evaluated at the time of entry to the study. RESULTS: Mean HCV-RNA load was significantly higher in coinfected patients (643,872 717,687 copies/mL) than in HCV+/HIV- (mean 161,573 276,896 copies/mL) (p = 0.01). The 39 HCV/HIV coinfected patients had a mean HIV-RNA load of 205,913 456,311 copies/mL (range 4,000-2,500,000) and a mean CD4+ lymphocyte count of 206.5171/microL (range 5-693). Five of the 39 (12.8%) coinfected patients had liver failure. In these five ...

A 69-year-old woman was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with a one-day history of coughing, nausea and drowsiness. She was a profound smoker and drank 3 units of alcohol daily. Medical history revealed myocardial infarction. Known prescribed medications were metoprolol, quinapril, pravastatin and carbasalate calcium. Physical examination showed a respiratory rate of 35/minute, heart rate of 82/minute, blood pressure of 129/62 mmHg and a tympanic temperature of 36.1°C. She had a poor circulation with cold extremities and prolonged capillary refill. We observed a Glasgow coma scale of E3M5V3, no meningism or skin abnormalities; lumbar puncture was not performed because of low suspicion and severe coagulopathy. She had poor dental condition and had recently lost a tooth. Blood gas analysis showed mild respiratory compensated metabolic acidosis (pH 7.47, pCO2 3.6 kPa, HCO3- 19.7 mmol/l, base excess -3.1 mmol/l) and reasonable oxygenation (pO2 9.1 kPa, SatO2 95%). Laboratory results showed ...
Hemostasis undergoes major changes in normal pregnancy. These changes contribute in maintaining placental function and preventing excessive bleeding. Most changes in coagulation create a state of hypercoagulability that serves to protect the mother from hemorrhage during delivery. Unfortunately, these changes can also can predispose women to thromboembolism. It is important to note that complications with pregnancy such as pre-eclampsia, hemorrhage, infection, etc. can have multiple deleterious coagulopathies which are not specifically discussed here.. Platelets: Thrombocytopenia is the most common hemostatic abnormality observed in healthy women. Part of this is due to hemodilutional affects but increases in mean platelet volume suggests that there exists compensated platelet destruction as well.. Coagulation System: In normal pregnancy you see significant increases in factor VII, VIII, IX, X, XII, vWF and fibrinogen but relatively no changes to factors II and V. Protein C and anti-thrombin ...

For non-complex CFIDS, changing one item may be sufficient for the body to deal with other items. In other cases, assistance is needed in many areas (in some cases this may need to happen in parallel and not sequentially).. A medical protocol is a treatment methodology. My personal opinion is that CFIDS is a complex disease with many different paths but that there is a general pattern. The different paths are due to different infections (that share some similar characteristics -- often the immune response generated), different genetic factors (for example, inherited coagulation defects) and environmental factors (including items like mercury [increases Th2 ...

Abnormal uterine bleeding is an overarching term that is defined as bleeding from the uterine corpus that is irregular in volume, frequency, or duration in absence of pregnancy (Table 96-1).1 Vaginal bleeding is a common complaint in the ED, and differential diagnoses include pregnancy, structural abnormalities (e.g., polyps, fibroids), endometritis, coagulopathies, trauma, and various other causes. The prevalence of abnormal bleeding is estimated at 9% to 14% in the general population. Although vaginal bleeding may present as an acute or chronic problem, this chapter will focus on the ED evaluation and management of abnormal uterine bleeding. ...

32.81 As events were to prove, the risk of transmission of NANB Hepatitis/HCV was present before and continued after the AIDS period (broadly 1981 to 1985 in the case of coagulation disorder patients). However, there are questions as to whether AIDS was so significantly different from other viral diseases that the scientific and clinical response to it marked a step change in ethical practice that not only affected later ethical standards relating to hepatitis, but also innovated on previous accepted standards. If the answer to these questions is in the affirmative there is a further question as to whether one can infer from views expressed during and after the AIDS period what the direction of change in standards had been or was likely to have been in relation to NANB Hepatitis/HCV.. 32.82 As already noted, the statements of 1988 narrated that the guidance then set out reflected long accepted practice. There is a temptation, to which those seeking to drive forward professional standards are ...

According to the report, the patient was admitted to the hospital in 2010 for hematemesis. A nurse reported the patient vomited bright red clots of blood. After the patient was intubated in the ICU, she was taken emergently to the operating room. During the procedure the surgeon noted that the patient was coagulopathic. He requested Factor VII be given to help clotting. The CRNA in the case told the state investigator that he gave a drug that was given to him by the supervising anesthesiologist without ever confirming its contents because he "put his trust in [my] supervisor and took the bottle of medication" and pushed it into the patient. The patient made it out of the OR but continued to bleed profusely. When the surgeon asked for more Factor VII to be given in the ICU, the pharmacist said he had not sent any to the patient. He had sent Activase instead. Activase actually prevents blood from clotting and is used to treat patients with blood clots causing an ischemic stroke or heart attack ...

Scott to the Clippers would have also been a homecoming of sorts as Scott was drafted by the then-San Diego Clippers fourth overall in 1983. But the Clippers traded him to the Lakers for guard Norm Nixon and he never played a minute with the franchise.. Who knows what the Lakers would have done if Scott was never available this off-season. Fans could easily be seeing Mike Dunleavy or Lionel Hollins roaming the sidelines for the purple and gold. Things seemed to have worked out for all sides involved and though Scott has a long journey in front of him, he is setting the foundation for future Lakers greatness.. [divide].

Bleeding and bruising are common symptoms in the primary care setting. The patient history can help determine whether the bruising or bleeding is abnormal. The International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis has developed a bleeding assessment tool that can be used to indicate possible pathology. A family history of bleeding problems may suggest a hereditary coagulation defect. Such a history is especially important in children who may not have experienced a major bleeding episode. Medication review can identify pharmacologic causes of the bleeding or bruising. Physical examination findings such as mucocutaneous bleeding suggest that the underlying condition is caused by platelet dysfunction, whereas hemarthroses or hematomas are more common in coagulopathy. If the history and physical examination findings suggest a bleeding diathesis, initial laboratory testing includes a complete blood count, peripheral blood smear, prothrombin time (PT), and partial thromboplastin time (PTT). A normal PT and PTT
TEG: THEORY AND APPLICATION. Introduction. The technique of thrombelastography, or TEG®, offers clinicians a powerful tool for the evaluation of possible coagulation disorders in a wide variety of clinical settings. This exercise will cover the principles of thrombelastography and review application of the technique to real-world clinical problems.The more commonly used tests of coagulation, particularly the prothrombin time and the activated partial thromboplastin time, measure extremely limited portions of this system and do not provide a realistic picture of coagulation status. TEG, on the other hand, provides the most nearly complete evaluation of coagulation status and allows excellent prediction of the probability of pathological thrombosis, hemorrhage, or clot lysis in difficult clinical situations.. Brief review of coagulation. The blood coagulation and fibrinolytic system is a remarkably complex balance of up- and down-regulating proteins with constant feedback among a dizzying array ...

Factor V Leiden, also known as Activated Protein C Resistance, is a hereditary blood disorder that causes hypercoagulability and an increased risk of thrombosis.
Thromboelastometry (TEM), previously named rotational thromboelastography (ROTEG) or rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM), is an established viscoelastic method for hemostasis testing in whole blood. It is a modification of traditional thromboelastography (TEG). TEM investigates the interaction of coagulation factors, their inhibitors, anticoagulant drugs, blood cells, specifically platelets, during clotting and subsequent fibrinolysis. The rheological conditions mimic the sluggish flow of blood in veins. TEM is performed with the ROTEM whole blood analyzer (Tem Innovations GmbH, Munich) and is an enhancement of thrombelastography, originally described by H. Hartert in 1948. While traditional thromboelastography is a global assay for blood clotting disorders and drug effects, TEM is primarily used in combination with appropriate differential assays. They allow testing in the presence of therapeutic heparin concentrations and provide differential diagnostic information to support decisions in ...
Thromboelastography (TEG) is a point-of-care whole blood coagulation monitor which provides information on specific aspects of coagulation including time to production of initial fibrin strands (R-time), time to develop clot (R-time, K-time), rate of fibrin build-up and cross linking (-angle), maximum clot strength (maximum amplitude bMA) and measures of fibrinolysis (decreasing amplitude post-MA). Abnormal TEG data may predict patients who will bleed. Spiess [2] found that TEG correlated well with ACT and coagulation profiles and whilst no coagulation test was consistently abnormal the TEG was the most accurate predictor of bleeding. Ereth studied a Platelet-activated clotting test (PACT HemoSTATUS), ACT and clotting studies, and TEG. Whilst PACT sensitivity and specificity was comparable to conventional coagulation tests in predicting blood loss, TEG was more predictive at both blood loss levels. Essell found that whilst the bleeding time and platelet count had sensitivities similar to the ...

Deficiency of the naturally occurring anticoagulant proteins, such as antithrombin, protein C and protein S, and activated protein C resistance due to the factor V Leiden gene mutation is associated with inherited thrombophilia. So far, no direct comparison of the thrombotic risk associated with these genetic defects is available. In this study, we wish to compare the lifetime probability of developing thrombosis, the type of thrombotic symptoms, and the role of circumstantial triggering factors in 723 first- and second-degree relatives of 150 index patients with different thrombophilic defects. We found higher risks for thrombosis for subjects with antithrombin (risk ratio 8.1, 95% confidence interval [CI], 3.4 to 19.6), protein C (7.3, 95% CI, 2.9 to 18.4) or protein S deficiency (8.5, 95% CI, 3.5 to 20.8), and factor V Leiden (2.2, 95% CI, 1.1 to 4.7) than for individuals with normal coagulation. The risk of thrombosis for subjects with factor V Leiden was lower than that for those with all ...
Ecchymosis is an area of blood extravasation larger than 5 mm in size and is usually secondary to small or medium sized blood vessel trauma.3 In patients with either congenital or acquired coagulation defects, even trivial trauma may result in ecchymosis. Petechial hemorrhages are smaller (, 2 mm) and typically due to damage to dermal capillaries. Causes of petechial hemorrhages include increased hydrostatic pressure in the capillary system (e.g., post-tussive or post-strangulation); infections (e.g., Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever); small vessel vasculitis (e.g., Henoch Schönlein Purpura); and poor capillary structural integrity (e.g., scurvy or amyloidosis). Confluent periorbital petechial hemorrhages may morphologically resemble ecchymosis as can be seen in amyloidosis.4 Our patient had no clinical features, or laboratory results suggestive of congenital or acquired coagulation defects; increased hydrostatic pressure; infection; vasculitis; or amyloidosis.. Complications associated with nasal ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The unwarranted use of replicate analysis in routine coagulation studies. AU - Sage-El, A.. AU - Burns, E.. AU - Wenz, B.. PY - 1985/1/1. Y1 - 1985/1/1. N2 - The need to assure the validity of semiautomated coagulation procedures by performing replicate determinations is assessed. Prothrombin times (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin times (aPTT) were run as duplicate assays using two different photo-optical detection systems. Sixty specimens with a broad range of PT and aPTT results were studied as aliquots of 80, 100, and 140 μL of plasma. A total of 1,440 studies were performed. No statistically significant differences were found among the data for complementary groups of assays. It is concluded that replicate analyses do not enhance the precision nor the accuracy of these coagulation studies. These factors are more controlled adequately by quality assurance procedures, including frequent calibration checks, the use of internal standards, and multilevel commercial ...
Damage control surgery is an old type of surgery practiced for many years to save the lives of badly injured patients. Damage control was first practiced in the American navy where a damaged vessel would receive minimal repair to keep it afloat. This translates to the field of medicine where minimal surgery is performed to save the life of a patient, and minimal action is taken to avoid major ailments, including hypothermia, acidosis, and coagulation defects during major trauma. Before World War II damage control surgery was popular, but later this type of surgery was abandoned. However, with a better understanding of the physiology of trauma and a revision of the outcome of badly injured patients, surgeons have reverted to damage control surgery, for example the packing of bleeding organs such as the liver and the controlling of sepsis, rather than taking patients to intensive care for further assessment. Damage control surgery has many benefits for badly injured patients and improves their chances of
TY - JOUR. T1 - The influence of infusions of 1-desamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin (DDAVP) in vivo on the anticoagulant effect of recombinant hirudin (CGP39393) in vitro. AU - Ibbotson, S H. AU - Grant, P J. AU - Kerry, R. AU - Findlay, V S. AU - Prentice, C R. PY - 1991/1/23. Y1 - 1991/1/23. N2 - Hirudin is a specific, potent inhibitor of thrombin that may be a valuable antithrombotic agent. The aim of this study was to investigate the hypothesis that the haemostatic effects of DDAVP counteract the coagulation defect induced by hirudin. The effect of DDAVP was studied in vivo on the anticoagulant action of recombinant hirudin (CGP39393) in vitro. Blood samples were taken at intervals from 10 normal volunteers infused with DDAVP. Factor VIII:C rose from (mean) 0.68 IU/ml before DDAVP to 2.19 and 2.16 IU/ml after 30 and 60 min infusion, respectively. Samples taken during DDAVP infusion showed a dose related decrease in the hirudin (0.5 and 1.0 microM) induced prolongation of the APTT, that ...
Various haemostatic abnormalities have been associated with thyroid dysfunction, especially with hypothyroidism. The underlying mechanisms are not well established.. The aim of the study was to evaluate the primary and secondary haemostasis in patients with severe hypothyroidism, to assess the role of thyroid hormone deficiency and to determine whether increased serum TSH level despite normal free thyroid hormone concentrations could influence the coagulation system.. Platelet count, fibrinogen, prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), INR, thrombin time, factor VIII activity, factor von Willebrand were measured in 52 patients (age 45±14 years, 40 women and 12 men) with previous total thyroidectomy for differentiated thyroid cancer. Factor von Willebrand and factor VIII activity were significantly decreased while APTT was significantly increased in hypothyroidism (after withdrawing of thyroid hormones) compared to euthyroidism in 22 patients: TSH (μU/ml): 94.3±36.0 vs ...
