A family of proteinase-activated receptors that are specific for THROMBIN. They are found primarily on PLATELETS and on ENDOTHELIAL CELLS. Activation of thrombin receptors occurs through the proteolytic action of THROMBIN, which cleaves the N-terminal peptide from the receptor to reveal a new N-terminal peptide that is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The receptors signal through HETEROTRIMERIC GTP-BINDING PROTEINS. Small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal peptide sequence can also activate the receptor in the absence of proteolytic activity.
A G-protein-coupled, proteinase-activated receptor that is expressed in a variety of tissues including ENDOTHELIUM; LEUKOCYTES; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. The receptor is activated by TRYPSIN, which cleaves off the N-terminal peptide from the receptor. The new N-terminal peptide is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The uncleaved receptor can also be activated by the N-terminal peptide present on the activated THROMBIN RECEPTOR and by small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal sequence.

Vitronectin inhibits the thrombotic response to arterial injury in mice. (1/264)

Vitronectin (VN) binds to plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and integrins and may play an important role in the vascular response to injury by regulating fibrinolysis and cell migration. However, the role of VN in the earliest response to vascular injury, thrombosis, is not well characterized. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that variation in vitronectin expression alters the thrombotic response to arterial injury in mice. Ferric chloride (FeCl3) injury was used to induce platelet-rich thrombi in mouse carotid arteries. Wild-type (VN +/+, n = 14) and VN-deficient (VN -/-, n = 15) mice, matched for age and gender, were studied. Time to occlusion after FeCl3 injury was determined by application of a Doppler flowprobe to the carotid artery. Occlusion times of VN -/- mice were significantly shorter than those of VN +/+ mice (6.0 +/- 1.2 minutes v 17.8 +/- 2.3 minutes, respectively, P < .001). Histologic analysis of injured arterial segments showed that thrombi from VN +/+ and VN -/- mice consisted of dense platelet aggregates. In vitro studies of murine VN +/+ and VN -/- platelets showed no significant differences in ADP-induced aggregation, but a trend towards increased thrombin-induced aggregation in VN -/- platelets. Purified, denatured VN inhibited thrombin-induced platelet aggregation, whereas native VN did not. Thrombin times of plasma from VN -/- mice (20.5 +/- 2.1 seconds, n = 4) were significantly shorter than those of VN +/+ mice (34.2 +/- 6.7 seconds, n = 4, P < .01), and the addition of purified VN to VN -/- plasma prolonged the thrombin time into the normal range, suggesting that VN inhibits thrombin-fibrinogen interactions. PAI-1-deficient mice (n = 6) did not demonstrate significantly enhanced arterial thrombosis compared with wild-type mice (n = 6), excluding a potential indirect antithrombin function of VN mediated by interactions with PAI-1 as an explanation for the accelerated thrombosis observed in VN -/- mice. These results suggest that vitronectin plays a previously unappreciated antithrombotic role at sites of arterial injury and that this activity may be mediated, at least in part, by inhibiting platelet-platelet interactions and/or thrombin procoagulant activity.  (+info)

Transcranial Doppler directed dextran therapy in the prevention of carotid thrombosis: three hour monitoring is as effective as six hours. (2/264)

BACKGROUND: Six hours' monitoring by transcranial Doppler (TCD) has been successful in directing Dextran therapy in patients at high risk of thrombotic stroke after carotid endarterectomy (CEA). OBJECTIVES: Is 3 h of routine monitoring as effective as 6 h in the prevention of early postoperative thrombotic stroke? DESIGN: Prospective, consecutive study in all patients with an accessible cranial window. METHODS: One hundred and sixty-six patients undergoing CEA underwent 3 h of postoperative monitoring by TCD. Any patient with > 25 emboli detected in any 10 min period or those with emboli that distorted the arterial waveform were commenced on an incremental infusion of dextran 40. RESULTS: The majority of patients destined to embolise will do so within the first 2 postoperative hours. Dextran therapy was instituted in nine patients (5%) and rapidly controlled this phase of embolisation although the dose had to be increased in three (33%). No patient suffered a postoperative carotid thrombosis but one suffered a minor stroke on day 5 and was found to have profuse embolisation on TCD; high dose dextran therapy was again instituted, the embolus count rate fell rapidly and he made a good recovery thereafter. Overall, the death and disabling stroke rate was 1.2% and the death/any stroke rate was 2.4%. CONCLUSION: Three hours of postoperative TCD monitoring is as effective as 6 h in the prevention of postoperative carotid thrombosis.  (+info)

Inhibitory effects of nimodipine on platelet aggregation and thrombosis. (3/264)

AIM: To study the inhibitory effects of nimodipine (Nim) on rat platelet aggregation and arterial thrombosis in vivo. METHODS: The aggregation rate of platelets induced by ADP and inhibition rate of Nim were measured by the change of light transmission. Effect of Nim on arterial occlusion time was measured by electric stimulation. Effect of Nim on the contents of 6-keto-PGF1 alpha and TXB2 in serum was measured by radioimmunoassay. RESULTS: Nim 4.5, 9, 18, and 36 ig for 4 d restrained the platelet aggregation. The IC50 (95% confidence limits) was 26 (9-44) Nim 4.5, 9, and 18 ig for 4 d markedly prolonged the time of thrombotic occlusion in carotid artery induced by electric stimulation. Nim 9 and 18 improved the imbalance of 6-keto-PGF1 alpha/TXB2 in serum after thrombosis. CONCLUSION: Nim was a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation, which was partially concerned with the improved balance of 6-keto-PGF1 alpha/TXB2.  (+info)

Recently occluded intracranial and extracranial carotid arteries. Relevance of the unstable atherosclerotic plaque. (4/264)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: It is now widely accepted that thrombotic coronary artery occlusion usually follows rupture of an unstable atherosclerotic plaque. The significance of such instability in arteries supplying the brain is less well appreciated. We therefore describe the clinical and pathological features of recent, symptomatic internal carotid artery occlusion to examine the pathogenetic role of plaque instability at both extracranial and intracranial sites. METHODS: Cases were selected from a consecutive series of 188 adult neuropathology autopsies. In 90 of these, the principal neuropathological abnormality was cerebral infarction, in 14 cases due to recent occlusion of 1 or more segments of the internal carotid artery. In each case, a full systemic, cardiovascular, and neuropathological autopsy was performed. Plaque instability was assessed by the presence or absence of a large, necrotic, lipid core; a thin, fibrous cap; and superficial inflammation. RESULTS: Of the 14 cases, 3 showed extracranial (carotid sinus), 7 intracranial, and 4 both extracranial and intracranial carotid artery occlusion. In 6 of the 7 occluded carotid sinuses, thrombus overlay an ulcerated, unstable, atherosclerotic plaque. In 1 extracranial and all 11 intracranial occlusions, there was either no atheroma or a mildly stenotic, stable, fibrous plaque, and in these cases, the cause of occlusion was embolism (8 cases), giant-cell arteritis (1 case), and unknown (3 cases). CONCLUSIONS: Coronary-type rupture of an unstable atherosclerotic plaque is the usual cause of fatal occlusion of the carotid sinus, but other causes usually underlie intracranial carotid occlusion. The nature and consequences of intracranial atherosclerosis require further study.  (+info)

Asymptomatic embolization predicts stroke and TIA risk in patients with carotid artery stenosis. (5/264)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Improved methods of identifying patients at high risk of thromboembolism would allow improved targeting of therapy. One such situation is carotid artery stenosis. This is associated with an increased risk of stroke, which can be reduced by carotid endarterectomy. However, the risk-benefit ratio is low in patients with tight asymptomatic stenosis and moderate symptomatic stenosis. Most stroke in patients with carotid stenosis is believed to be embolic. Therefore, the detection of asymptomatic cerebral emboli using Doppler ultrasound may allow identification of a high-risk group. METHODS: Transcranial Doppler ultrasound was used to record for 1 hour the ipsilateral middle cerebral artery in 111 patients with >60% carotid artery stenosis (69 symptomatic, 42 asymptomatic). The Doppler audio signal was recorded onto digital audio tape for later analysis for embolic signals (ES) by an individual blinded to clinical details. In 67 subjects the relationship between ES and angiographically determined plaque ulceration was investigated. All subjects were followed up prospectively, and the relationship between ES and risk of future ipsilateral carotid artery territory ischemic events (TIA and stroke) was determined. RESULTS: ES were detected in 41(36.9%) subjects. In symptomatic patients there was a significant inverse relationship between the number of ES per hour and time elapsed since last symptoms (Spearman's rho=-0.2558, P=0.034). ES were more common in subjects with plaque ulceration, with a relative risk of 4. 94 (95% CI, 1.23 to 19.84; P=0.025) after controlling for both symptomatic status and degree of stenosis. The presence of ES at entry was predictive of TIA and stroke risk during follow up in both symptomatic (P=0.02) and asymptomatic patients (P=0.007). Considering all 111 patients, the presence of asymptomatic embolization was predictive of a further ischemic event, with an adjusted OR of 8.10 (95% CI, 1.58 to 41.57; P=0.01) after controlling for other cardiovascular risk factors, degree of stenosis, symptomatic status, and aspirin or warfarin use. CONCLUSIONS: Asymptomatic embolization in patients with carotid artery stenosis correlates with known markers of increased stroke risk and is an independent predictor of future stroke risk in patients with both symptomatic and asymptomatic carotid stenosis. It may allow identification of a high-risk group of patients who will particularly benefit from carotid endarterectomy. A large multicenter study is now required to confirm these findings.  (+info)

Effects of citicoline combined with thrombolytic therapy in a rat embolic stroke model. (6/264)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to evaluate the effects of the combination of cytidine-5'-diphosphocholine (citicoline) and thrombolysis on infarct size, clinical outcome, and mortality in a rat embolic stroke model. METHODS: Eighty-three Sprague-Dawley rats were embolized in the carotid territory with a single fibrin embolus and randomly assigned to the following treatment groups: (1) control (saline), (2) citicoline 250 mg/kg, (3) citicoline 500 mg/kg, (4) recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) 5 mg/kg, (5) rtPA 5 mg/kg plus citicoline 250 mg/kg, and (6) rtPA 5 mg/kg plus citicoline 500 mg/kg. rtPA was administered as a continuous intravenous infusion over 45 minutes starting 45 minutes after embolization; citicoline was given intraperitoneally 30 minutes and 24, 48, and 72 hours after embolization. At 96 hours, the brains were fixed and stained by hematoxylin-eosin, and infarct volumes were measured. Neurological scores were determined daily. RESULTS: The median infarct size, measured as percentage of the affected hemisphere, in the control group was 37% (interquartile range, 26% to 69%) compared with 22% (5% to 52%; P=NS) in group 2, 11% (5% to 34%; P=NS) in group 3, 24% (12% to 31%; P=NS) in group 4, 11% (3% to 22%; P=0.02) in the combined group 5, and 19% (9% to 51%; P=NS) in group 6. The infarct size was significantly reduced in the combined citicoline+rtPA-treated groups to a median of 13% (5% to 30%; P<0.01). Citicoline 500 mg/kg and citicoline combined with rtPA also promoted functional recovery. CONCLUSIONS: These results demonstrate that the combination of low-dose citicoline and rtPA significantly reduced infarct size in this focal ischemia model.  (+info)

Delayed hypovolemic hypotension exacerbates the hemodynamic and histopathologic consequences of thromboembolic stroke in rats. (7/264)

Abnormalities in cerebrovascular reactivity or hemodynamic reserve are risk factors for stroke. The authors determined whether hemodynamic reserve is reduced in an experimental model of thromboembolic stroke. Nonocclusive common carotid artery thrombosis (CCAT) was produced in rats by a rose bengal-mediated photochemical insult, and moderate hypotension (60 mm Hg/30 min) was induced 1 hour later by hemorrhage. Alterations in local cerebral blood flow (ICBF) were assessed immediately after the hypotensive period by 14C-iodoantipyrine autoradiography, and histopathologic outcome was determined 3 days after CCAT. Compared to normotensive CCAT rats (n = 5), induced hypotension after CCAT (n = 7) led to enlarged regions of severe ischemia (i.e., mean ICBF < 0.24 mL/g/min) in the ipsilateral hemisphere. For example, induced hypotension increased the volume of severely ischemic sites from 16 +/- 4 mm3 (mean +/- SD) to 126 +/- 99 mm3 (P < 0.05). Histopathologic data also showed a larger volume of ischemic damage with secondary hypotension (n = 7) compared to normotension (22 +/- 15 mm3 versus 5 +/- 5 mm3, P < .05). Both hypotension-induced decreases in ICBF and ischemic pathology were commonly detected within cortical anterior and posterior borderzone areas and within the ipsilateral striatum and hippocampus. In contrast to CCAT, mechanical ligation of the common carotid artery plus hypotension (n = 8) did not produce significant histopathologic damage. Nonocclusive CCAT with secondary hypotension therefore predisposes the post-thrombotic brain to hemodynamic stress and structural damage.  (+info)

Brief myocardial ischemia attenuates platelet thrombosis in remote, damaged, and stenotic carotid arteries. (8/264)

BACKGROUND: Brief antecedent periods of coronary artery occlusion improve subsequent vessel patency in damaged and stenotic coronary arteries via release of adenosine from ischemic/reperfused myocardium and resultant adenosine receptor stimulation. However, the site of receptor stimulation-circulating blood-borne elements (ie, platelets) versus vessel-wall components of the culprit artery-remains unclear. If platelet adenosine receptors are involved, then the benefits of brief coronary occlusion (1) should be manifested systemically and improve patency at a remote site and (2) should be inhibited by an antagonist of adenosine A(2) receptors, whereas, in contrast, (3) brief vascular occlusion not associated with appreciable adenosine release should be ineffective in improving vessel patency. METHODS AND RESULTS: In Protocol 1, anesthetized rabbits received 5 minutes of transient coronary occlusion, 5 minutes of transient bilateral carotid occlusion (purported to cause negligible adenosine release from the brain), or no intervention. All rabbits then underwent injury plus stenosis of the left carotid artery, resulting in repeated cyclic variations in carotid blood flow (CFVs). Carotid patency during the initial 2 hours after stenosis (assessed by quantifying the nadir of the CFVs and area of the flow-time profile) was significantly enhanced with antecedent coronary-but not carotid-occlusion versus controls. In Protocol 2, improvement in carotid patency after brief coronary occlusion was corroborated in anesthetized dogs. However, the benefits of brief coronary occlusion were abrogated by the A(2)/A(1) antagonist CGS 15943. CONCLUSIONS: Brief antecedent coronary artery occlusion enhanced vessel patency in remote, damaged, and stenotic carotid arteries, largely due to adenosine receptor stimulation on circulating elements.  (+info)

Platelet-fibrin thrombi in the lumen of atherostenotic carotid arteries may underlie transient ischemic attacks and cerebral infarction. For this reason, we investigated the antiplatelet and antithrombotic effects of a novel and potent platelet fibrinogen receptor (glycoprotein IIb/IIIa) antagonist (SK&F 106760).. The effects of 0.1-3.0 mg/kg i.v. SK&F 106760 on platelet aggregation were examined ex vivo in canine platelet-rich plasma (n = 20). In addition, the antithrombotic effects of SK&F 106760 were compared with those of aspirin in an acute canine model of extracranial carotid artery thrombosis with high-grade stenosis. Sham-operated (n = 4), vehicle-treated (n = 6), SK&F 106760-treated (n = 8), aspirin-treated (n = 9), and SK&F 106760+aspirin-treated (n = 5) dogs were examined.. The intravenous administration of SK&F 106760 caused a dose-related inhibition of ex vivo platelet aggregation. In the carotid artery thrombosis model, an occlusive thrombus formed at stenotic sites in the region ...
Our results showed that early complete recanalization and ENI are more common with the isolated lesion group compared with the tandem group despite similar baseline characteristics. MCA recanalization rate was lower with tandem than with isolated lesions in other studies at ,24 hours after onset.2,7 In our study, the isolated lesion group had faster and higher complete recanalization rate than the tandem group during the first 2 hours. Recanalization rate increased with time in the isolated lesion group but not in the tandem group. Recanalization was less frequent with LVA than with CE subtype. Our patients may have had more chance to achieve complete recanalization because they had TCD monitoring during the first 2 hours.3 A direct comparison of our study with previous studies is not possible because previous studies did not report early recanalization rates.2,7 The low MCA recanalization rate in the tandem group may be attributed to the large amount of thrombus if ICA is obstructed.8 ICA ...
Dronedarone has been associated with a reduced number of first hospitalisation due to acute coronary syndromes. Whether this is only due to the reduction in ventricular heart rate and blood pressure or whether other effects of dronedarone may be involved is currently elusive. This study was designed to investigate the role of dronedarone in arterial thrombus formation. C57Bl/6 mice were treated with dronedarone and arterial thrombosis was investigated using a mouse photochemical injury model. Dronedarone inhibited carotid artery thrombus formation in vivo (P , 0.05). Thrombin- and collagen-induced platelet aggregation was impaired in dronedarone-treated mice (P , 0.05), and expression of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI1), an inhibitor of the fibrinolytic system, was reduced in the arterial wall (P , 0.05). In contrast, the level of tissue factor (TF), the main trigger of the coagulation cascade, and that of its physiological inhibitor, TF pathway inhibitor, did not differ. Similarly, ...
Here is a patch to allow admins to customize the blocking SMTP response reason in a config variable. It is particularly useful for people using amavisd-new in milter and proxy contexts that want to customize their reject messages. (Especially adding a contact address). The implementation adds the config hash %smtp_reason_by_ccat, a mapping of CC_ =, reason string to use when amavisd-new blocks content. The reason strings are subject to template-style expansion, so all the builtins work normally (%T, %d, etc). In order to access the original reason amavisd-new would have used for the given ccat, Ive added a builtin x, available only in this context. (I have no idea what letter to use and chose x more or less arbitrarily) One important detail of the implementation is that: %smtp_reason_by_ccat = ( CC_VIRUS, %x ); will NOT give you the original behavior, for that you need: %smtp_reason_by_ccat = ( CC_VIRUS, id=%n, %x ); The rationale being that if people want to customize their reason, ...

Background-Selective inhibitors of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) increase the risk of myocardial infarction and thrombotic events, but the responsible mechanisms are not fully understood. Methods and Results-We found that ferric chloride-induced arterial thrombus formation was significantly greater in COX-2 knockout (KO) compared to wild type (WT) mice. Cross-transfusion experiments excluded the likelihood that COX-2KO platelets, despite enhanced aggregation responses to collagen and thrombin, are responsible for increased arterial thrombus formation in COX-2KO mice. Importantly, we observed that COX-2 deletion decreased prostacyclin (PGI2) synthase and production, proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)δ and sirtuin-1 (SIRT1) expression, with consequent increased upregulation of tissue factor (TF), the primary initiator of blood coagulation. Treatment of WT mice with a PGI2 receptor (IP) antagonist or a PPARδ antagonist, which predisposes to arterial thombosis, decreased SIRT1 expression and ...
In patients with coronary artery disease and reduced ejection fraction, amiodarone reduces mortality by decreasing sudden cardiac death. Since the latter may be triggered by coronary artery thrombosis as much as ventricular arrhythmias, amiodarone might interfere with tissue factor (TF) expression and thrombus formation. Clinically relevant plasma concentrations of amiodarone inhibited TF activity and carotid artery thrombus formation in a mouse photo-chemical injury model in vivo (n = 5; p , 0.035; Figure 1). In human endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells, amiodarone inhibited tumor necrosis factor-α and thrombin induced TF protein expression (n = 4; p , 0.001) as well as surface activity (n = 4; p , 0.0001). Tissue factor pathway inhibitor was not affected (n = 5; p = NS). Amiodarone lacking iodine as well as the main metabolite of amiodarone, N-monodesethylamiodarone, inhibited TF expression (n = 4; p, 0.01). Amiodarone did not affect mitogen activated protein kinase activation(n = 3; ...
The major findings of this study are that Apoe-deficient mice exhibit accelerated arterial thrombosis and endothelial dysfunction when fed high fat and/or hyperhomocysteinemic diets. The high fat or hyperhomocysteinemic diets did not affect platelet activation responses. These findings suggest that the mechanism of accelerated thrombosis is unlikely to be attributable to effects of hypercholesterolemia or hyperhomocysteinemia on platelet activation, but instead may be related to diminished production of endothelium-derived nitric oxide or other prothrombotic factors.. As expected,17 the HF diet had a profound influence on plasma total cholesterol (Table) and atherosclerotic lesion area (Figure 1). We also found that Apoe−/− mice fed the HF diet exhibited enhanced susceptibility to carotid artery thrombosis, particularly at 12 weeks of age (Figure 3). A previous report by Eitzman et al demonstrated that short-term (5 days) feeding of a high fat diet to Apoe−/− mice resulted in accelerated ...

We read with great interest the recent article by Goldberg et al1 entitled, Cerebrovascular Disease in COVID-19. In a patient with coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) illness, the authors presented a case of evolving acute infarcts on CT head examinations at different time points, as well as high-grade stenosis of the proximal right internal carotid artery. With regard to the right internal carotid artery, the authors state, Given that the patient had evidence of mild, diffuse extracranial and intracranial atherosclerotic disease, the high-grade stenosis of the right ICA was favored to represent atherosclerotic disease; however, acute thrombus could have a similar appearance. While the authors may be correct in their interpretation of the case, we suspect that carotid thrombosis is a very frequent sequela of COVID-19-associated stroke. We have recently seen cases of acute stroke, in the setting of COVID-19 infection, with imaging features consistent with acute thrombosis in the ipsilateral common ...

Arterial thrombosis is much less common than venous thrombosis, although it poses similar risks. The veins are responsible for taking blood and oxygen to different sections of the body. The blood is normally subject to higher pressure when it is travelling in the veins and may be moving more quickly. It is therefore less likely to clot in the arteries. Whereas venous thromboses normally lead to swelling and fluid congestion in an area, arterial thrombosis can lead to body tissue becoming starved of blood and oxygen. This can eventually lead to necrosis of the tissue. A thrombosis or embolism in the coronary artery can cause a heart attack. If blood supply to the brain is disrupted, the patient may suffer a stroke. ...

Aim. The aims of the study were to evaluate prevalence of silent cerebral infarctions (SCI) and determine their clinical and echocardiographic predictors in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Patients and methods. In prospective cross sectional study we examined 134 patients with non-valvular AF. Clinical examination, laboratory tests, transoesophageal, transthoracic echocardiography and multislice computed tomography of the brain were performed for all patients. According to current guidelines, SCI was defined as imaging (≥3 mm) or neuropathological evidence of central nervous system infarction, without a history of acute neurological dysfunction attributable to the lesion. Results. Silent cerebral infarctions were detected in 34.3% (n = 46) of patients, and infarctions ≥ 15 mm (mean diameter 31.3 mm) were detected in 11.2% (n = 15) of patients. Superficial SCIwere found in 12.7%and basal SCI in 21.6% of cases. In multivariate analysis low creatinine clearance , 90 ml/min was ...
METHODS AND RESULTS: PI3K/p110α was inhibited by treatment with the small molecule inhibitor PIK75 or a specific siRNA. Arterial thrombosis, neointima formation, and re-endothelialization were studied in a murine carotid artery injury model. Proliferation and migration of human vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) and endothelial cell (EC) were assessed by cell number and Boyden chamber, respectively. Endothelial senescence was evaluated by the β-galactosidase assay, endothelial dysfunction by organ chambers for isometric tension. Arterial thrombus formation was delayed in mice treated with PIK75 when compared with controls. PIK75 impaired arterial expression and activity of tissue factor (TF) and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1); in contrast, plasma clotting and platelet aggregation did not differ. In VSMC and EC, PIK75 inhibited expression and activity of TF and PAI-1. These effects occurred at the transcriptional level via the RhoA signalling cascade and the transcription factor ...
The two vascular complications, venous and arterial thrombosis, share many risk factors, most of which are associated with increaased risk of atherosclerosis and endothelial wall injury due to the nature of arterial thrombosis development; these risk factors include: Furthermore there are many diseases that causes both arterial and venous thrombosis, such as: Although arterial and venous thrombosis are being treated as separate entities due to the pathophysiological point of view; recent studies have emphasized the strong correlation between atherothrombotic events risk and VTE risk[4][5][1].

The anodal current was initiated (150 μA) and maintained constant for a period of 30 min. All variables (LCX blood flow, heart rate, and arterial pressure) were monitored continuously for 240 min after the initiation of LCX electrode stimulation. Occlusive thrombosis was assessed as a constant reading of zero flow on the flowmeter for 1 min. At the conclusion of the observation period, the LCX coronary artery was excised and examined for electrode penetration and evidence of endothelial injury. The thrombus was extracted from the injured region of the vessel and weighed. Blood draws were performed to investigate ex vivo platelet reactivity, drug plasma concentration, PAI-1 activity, and general hemostatic profiling (PT, APTT, and template bleeding time) according to Fig. 1.. Platelet Aggregation and Bleeding Time. To assess ex vivo platelet reactivity, blood (10 ml) was withdrawn from the right femoral vein into a plastic syringe containing 3.7% sodium citrate as the anticoagulant [1:10 citrate ...

Fibrinolysis is the physiological breakdown of blood clots by enzymes such as plasmin. Organisation: following the thrombotic event, residual vascular thrombus will be re-organised histologically with several possible outcomes. For an occlusive thrombus (defined as thrombosis within a small vessel that leads to complete occlusion), wound healing will reorganise the occlusive thrombus into collagenous scar tissue, where the scar tissue will either permanently obstruct the vessel, or contract down with myofibroblastic activity to unblock the lumen. For a mural thrombus (defined as a thrombus in a large vessel that restricts the blood flow but does not occlude completely), histological reorganisation of the thrombus does not occur via the classic wound healing mechanism. Instead, the platelet-derived growth factor degranulated by the clotted platelets will attract a layer of smooth muscle cells to cover the clot, and this layer of mural smooth muscle will be vascularised by the blood inside the ...

The Elana products facilitate the creation of a bypass in the brains without the need to occlude the blood flow through the recipient artery. In traditional bypass techniques the surgeon needs to occlude the recipient artery in order to establish a bypass, and by this the blood flow to the brain is interrupted. It actually turns the principle of a conventional anastomosis around, in which patients can suffer from long occlusion times. With the ELANA Bypass the blood flow is maintained, and there is no time pressure for the surgeon to perform the bypass.. ...

In this report, a case of anomalous internal carotid artery looping into the orbital apex is presented. The patient was a 41-year-old man with sudden onset headache, suggestive of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Imaging with CT demonstrated a perimesencephalic distribution of blood. Cerebral angiography confirmed non-aneurysmal, perimesencephalic SAH, but incidentally noted an anomalous left internal carotid artery with a course into the orbital cone. This is the only known example of this anatomic variation. Potential embryological explanations are discussed. ...

Background: The transition from normal epithelium to adenoma and, to invasive carcinoma in the human colon is associated with acquired molecular events taking 5-10 years for malignant transformation. We discovered CCAT1, a non-coding RNA over-expressed in colon cancer (CC), but not in normal tissues, thereby making it a potential disease-specific biomarker. We aimed to define and validate CCAT1 as a CC-specific biomarker, and to study CCAT1 expression across the adenoma-carcinoma sequence of CC tumorigenesis.Methods: Tissue samples were obtained from patients undergoing resection for colonic adenoma(s) or carcinoma. Normal colonic tissue (n = 10), adenomatous polyps (n = 18), primary tumor tissue (n = 22), normal mucosa adjacent to primary tumor (n = 16), and lymph node(s) (n = 20), liver (n = 8), and peritoneal metastases (n = 19) were studied. RNA was extracted from all tissue samples, and CCAT1 expression was analyzed using quantitative real time-PCR (qRT-PCR) with confirmatory in-situ ...
Discussion. Blunt carotid artery injury (BCI) is rare, with a reported incidence of 0.33% in some series.[1] Despite advances in imaging modalities and management options, the morbidity and mortality associated with BCI is over 30%, largely due to stroke.[1] Bilateral injuries to the ICA are exceptionally rare, with experience limited to case reports only.[2]. A high index of suspicion is essential in detecting this often clinically occult injury. Biffl et al.[3] have shown that aggressive screening using the Denver screening criteria (Table 1) to decide on the need for investigation[4] has increased the detection rate for BCI from 0.1% to 0.86%. In addition, they showed an improvement in neurological outcome in asymptomatic BCI patients who were anticoagulated.. Biffls grading system based on investigative angiographic findings has management and prognostic implications outlined- in Table 2.[4] Grade I and II injuries are of particular concern and require follow-up angiography owing to the ...
Methods and Results-Using recombinant proteins and a murine model, we demonstrated that an ADAMTS13 variant truncated after either the eighth thrombospondin type 1 repeat or the spacer domain inhibits ferric chloride-induced arterial thrombosis in ADAMTS13−/− mice with efficacy similar to that of full-length ADAMTS13. The results obtained from monitoring thrombus formation in carotid and mesenteric arteries were highly concordant. Further analyses by site-directed mutagenesis and human monoclonal antibody inhibition assay revealed that the Cys-rich and spacer domains of ADAMTS13, particularly the amino acid residues between Arg559 and Glu664 in the spacer domain, may be critical for modulation of arterial thrombosis in vivo. Finally, the thrombosis-modulating function of ADAMTS13 and variants/mutants was highly correlated with the von Willebrand factor-cleavage activity under fluid shear stress.. ...
Searching the radiology database of a large teaching hospital to identify patients who had PAT develop after receiving RT, first author Jitesh Ahuja from the thoracic imaging department at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center recorded the PATs CT characteristics: number, location, appearance of filling defects, as well as the presence of associated lung fibrosis. The terminology (in situ thrombosis vs acute or chronic pulmonary embolism) used to describe PAT, the time between completion of RT and development of PAT, the size change of PAT, and any observation of new thrombi and emboli on follow-up imaging were also recorded.. With a study population consisting of 27 patients (19 men and eight women) at a mean age of 71 (range, 54-90 years), the primary malignancy was lung cancer in 22 patients (81%) and mesothelioma in five patients (19%). Whereas most PATs were solitary (93%) and nonocclusive (96%) and formed an obtuse angle to the vessel wall (89%), all PATs were eccentric ...

PART ONE. MARCH 25, 2008. Greetings everyone. I hope that I find you hearing and seeing more, in a higher rank, in the particular order you might be in. Things are happening quickly, in our FOCUSED BEING and it is wonderful!!. For the last 4 months much has been happening in my life. First, I lost my home and everything in it, right down to the silverware. (I wont go into all the particulars), but things came about and I gave my trailer away; I gave all my furniture to some who needed it; and I moved in with my sister. I actually didnt LOSE my home, I turned loose of it.. Then 2 wks ago I had surgery done on my left carotid artery. It was a much more painful surgery than I thought it would be, but as you see, I survived. I am not supposed to do anything for 4 weeks, but I am almost healed. Really!! (in this physical body). Throughout all this happening, I have had a lot of time to do some listening, and listening I have done. Folks, this is for the mature, what I AM about to write. We are in ...
Clinical record. A 33-year-old man presented to an emergency department with acute dysphasia and a dense right hemiparesis. His National Institute Health Stroke Scale score was 12, indicating a moderate severity stroke (score range 0-42, with increasing values indicating increasing severity). His computed tomography (CT) brain scan was normal. A CT angiogram showed a filling defect in the left intracranial internal carotid artery. Intravenous thrombolysis was commenced 2.5 hours after stroke onset and completed during urgent transit to our hospital for endovascular thrombectomy. Combined stent retrieval and suction thrombectomy of the left internal carotid occlusion restored flow 4.5 hours after stroke onset. A small dissection in the left intracranial internal carotid artery was the source of the thrombotic occlusion (Figure). A magnetic resonance imaging scan of the brain showed small scattered infarctions in the left middle cerebral arterial territory.. The patient was later found to have a ...

The staff in the ICU unit marveled at Dougs quick recovery and called him a walking miracle. An ultrasound showed that his left carotid artery was completely blocked, but other arteries in the area had grown and compensated for the blockage. Within six days, he was out of the hospital. In less than a month, he was back at work, but he felt well enough to go back sooner. The only issue he had was in learning to write his name again, but he totally recovered that ability.. Today, Doug cant help but get a little emotional when he talks about his stroke. He says he can see God in every detail of that day, starting with how he was at work because he originally wasnt scheduled to be. Also, he was where other people could see him when it started and working when the nurse was on site. If any of these things had been different, he might not have gotten the quick treatment he needed. Plus, he is amazed at how perfectly the other arteries have grown to compensate for the blockage and how he has been ...

  • To be considered for stenting, symptomatic patients required at least 50% stenosis (7-9) and asymptomatic patients required at least 70% diameter narrowing (10) by angiographic North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET) criteria (7) . (
  • Renal artery stenosis (narrowing) may remain silent (asymptomatic) for long periods of time especially if the blockage is only affecting one side and is partial. (
  • Any narrowing of an artery will hamper the flow of blood and depending on the extent of the narrowing, known as stenosis , the artery may be partially or completely occluded (blocked). (
