We describe a case of intraoperative cardiac trombosis during orthotopic liver transplant surgery that resulted in intraoperative death. By using transesophageal echocardiography, the cause of the descompensation of the patient could be determined and the mechanism of trombus migration from thrombi from the venous circulation to the left heart was accurately observed.

Inflammatory bowel disease is associated with extraintestinal manifestations. Among these manifestations is the venous tromboembolism which presents a risk three times more than that presented in general population. We report the case of a 61-year-old male with a history of abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea and fever, with leukocytosis, and fecal samples containing leukocytes, partial ileal stenosis with multiple ulcers in the enteroscopy, with histologic findings compatible with Crohn's disease. The patient has a good outcome with prednisone and maintenence azathioprine, presenting at the fifth month deep venous thrombosis of both lower extremities that resolvewith anticoagulation treatment...

Diabetes mellitus (DM), a chronic disease with an increasing incidence and prevalence worldwide, is an established risk factor for arterial cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and peripheral vascular diseases including acute myocardial infarction, stroke and peripheral artery disease. On the other hand, its role as independent risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE) and for cardioembolic stroke or systemic embolism (SE) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) is more conflicting. Venous and arterial thromboses have traditionally been regarded as separate diseases, but recent studies have documented an association between these vascular complications...

Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) have an increased risk of vascular complications. Thromboembolic complications, both venous and arterial, are serious extraintestinal manifestations complicating the course of IBD and can lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Patients with IBD are more prone to thromboembolic complications and IBD per se is a risk factor for thromboembolic disease. Data suggest that thrombosis is a specific feature of IBD that can be involved in both the occurrence of thromboembolic events and the pathogenesis of the disease...

OBJECTIVES: Dabigatran etexilate is a new oral direct thrombin inhibitor for prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients who have elective surgery for total hip replacement (THR) or total knee replacement (TKR). Among the advantages of dabigatran etexilate over subcutaneous prophylaxis with Low Molecular Weight Heparin (LMWH) are reduced resource uses for (i) teaching patients to self-inject; (ii) home-care visits for subcutaneous administration; and (iii) absence of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT)...

BACKGROUND: The risk of venous tromboembolism (VTE) in women taking combined oral contraceptives (COCs) is attributed to changes in coagulation and fibrinolysis. The impact of the COCs may be greater in women with preexisting thrombophilic defects. Nevertheless most women who suffer from venous thrombosis do not have any of the well known hereditary or acquired risk factors. A simple and sensitive marker of"thrombogenicity" has not been identified. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of two different monophasic combined oral contraceptives (COCs) on the plasma concentrations of activated protein C-inhibitor of protein C ( APC-PCI) and on comparable hemostatic factors in fertile women...

In malignant gliomas, the management of symptoms and minimization of side effects assume major importance. Corticosteroids provide transient relief from neurological symptoms. However, treatment with steroids is also commonly associated with considerable side-effects including: hyperglycemia, osteoporosis, myopathy, lymphopenia and others. Sometimes, antiepileptic drugs may contribute to clinical decline of neuro-oncological patients in stable disease not only by neuropsychological impairment but also by metabolic interations...

There is consistent evidence that the use of oral contraceptives and is associated with increased risk of deep vein thrombosis. The study objective was to assess age specific incidence of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in women 20 to 50 years of age associated with the use of oral contraceptives, and smoking habit. A case-control study of vein thrombosis was conducted in National Heart Hospital in Sofia. The study consists of studies for vascular events (peripheral vascular disease) during hormonal therapy...

Oral contraceptives increase the risk of thromboembolism. Recent studies have indicated that the risk of thromboembolic disease in users of combined oral contraceptive pills varies not only with estrogen dose, but also with the type of gestagen in pills with the same estrogen dose. We describe 8 women from our intensive care unit who developed a deep venous thrombosis while on oral contraceptives. The aim of this article is also to discuss other risk factors for the potential risk of venous tromboembolism in users of combined oral contraceptive...

Total hip replacement represents an operation with high risk of thromboembolic disease. An optimal strategy of thromboprophylaxis is very important. In our two groups of patients we compared two ways of prophylaxis both during hospitalization and after hospital discharge. 81 patients in the first group were treated with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) - Fraxiparine during the stay in hospital and with a combination of three drugs - Aspirin, Curantyl and Secatoxin during 3 months after operation. 85 patients in the second group were also treated with LMWH during the stay in hospital but LMWH was early changed for Warfarin...

Antiphospholipid syndrome (Hughes syndrome) is an autoimmune disorder with production of antibodies against phospholipids and phospholipid binding peptides in human organism, that is associated with thrombotic events. Venous and/or arterial tromboembolism and recurrent pregnancy loss at women are the most frequently observed clinical manifestations. Neurological symptoms are common and they can often mime multiple sclerosis. That is why antiphospholipid antibodies must be concerned in differential diagnostics of multiple sclerosis, particularly with the atypical course and clinical pattern...

Venous thromboembolism is a serious complication in patients with cancer. The seriousness of venous thromboembolism as a complication in cancer patients is becoming recognized as an important medical issue. Venous thromboembolism is a multifactorial disease associated with vascular endothelial damage, stasis of blood flow, and hypercoagulation. Preexisting morbidity, mutations of factor V Leiden or prothrombin 20210A, type of cancer, presence of metastases, use of central venous access, surgery, anesthesia, etc...

Cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a complex network of vascular channels consisting of arterial feeders, a nidus and enlarged venous drainage. AVMs usually increase in size with time, but may rarely obliterate; spontaneous angiographic regression occurs in less than 1.5% of cerebral AVMs. Several causes of spontaneous regression have been postulated such us hemodynamic alterations due to hemorrhage, hypercoagulability, atherosclerosis, and tromboembolism from associated aneurysms. In this report we describe a case of spontaneous, complete and asymptomatic occlusion of a left cerebellar hemispheric AVM; angiograms clearly demonstrate a progressive decrease in size of the AVM at follow-up...

Hereditary thrombophilia is associated with an increased risk of fetal loss. Assuming that fetal loss is due to placental thrombosis, anticoagulant treatment might improve pregnancy outcome. In an observational family cohort study, we prospectively assessed the effects of anticoagulant drugs on fetal loss rates in women with hereditary deficiencies of antithrombin, protein C or protein S. The cohort contained 376 women (50 probands and 326 deficient or non-deficient relatives). Probands were consecutive deficient patients with venous tromboembolism...

D-dimer measurement is commonly included in the diagnostic workup of patients with suspected acute symptomatic deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. As a haemostatic marker, it could be theoretically useful in other thromboembolic disorders, such as acute cerebrovascular events. In this review we summarize published literature on D-dimer testing in acute ischemic stroke and cerebral sinus and venous thrombosis (CSVT), discussing possible clinical diagnostic and therapeutical applications. In ischemic stroke, mounting evidence suggests a possible role of D-dimer in the acute diagnosis of ischemic stroke subtypes, especially in identifying tromboembolic and lacunar stroke...

PURPOSE: Venous tromboembolic treatment in patients with cancer can be a clinical dilemma. Comorbid conditions, significant risk of recurrence of bleeding associated with warfarin, difficult venous access, are some of the factors that often complicate anticoagulants therapy in patients with cancer. EXEGESIS: Low molecular weight heparin has replaced unfractionated heparin as the first line treatment in the majority of patients with venous thromboembolism and cancer, in hospital or safely at home...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Aprotinin is a non-specific inhibitor of serine proteases with hemostyptic and hemostatic properties. The effect covers suppression of fibrinolysis and support of the role of thrombocytes in coagulation. In a prospective randomized study we verified whether the application of aprotinin (Antilysin Spofa, Czech Republic) in the dosage effective in cardiosurgical patients reduces blood loss and the need for blood transfusion for orthopaedic patients. MATERIAL: 42 patients indicated to the primary THA were randomly selected into the study and control groups...
