Malfunctioning prosthetic heart valves have been previously associated with nonimmune hemolytic anemia; however, disseminated intravascular coagulation has not previously been noted as a complication in the absence of infective endocarditis. The authors report the case of an 81-year-old woman who developed disseminated intravascular coagulation associated with a dysfunctional prosthetic heart valve.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is an acquired syndrome characterized by systemic intravascular activation of coagulation, leading to deposition of fibrin in the bloodstream. It may occur...
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with excessive fibrinolysis (XFL) is a rare and acute life-threatening variant of DIC in patients with prostate cancer. Patients present with coagulopathy,...
Neonatal compartment syndrome is a rare, but devastating limb-threatening condition that requires early recognition and timely surgical intervention. We discuss the clinical presentation and managemen...
A procoagulant state is implicated in cerebral malaria (CM) pathogenesis, but whether disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is present or associated with fatal outcome is unclear.
To investigate the risk factors for early disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in neonates with sepsis.
To evaluate the safety and activity of ART-123 in reducing death in subjects with sepsis and disseminated intravascular coagulation.
The purpose of this study is to see if ART-123 (recombinant human soluble thrombomodulin) decreases the number of people who die as a result of Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC)...
The primary objective of the study is to explore the efficacy and safety of ATryn® (antithrombin alfa) for the treatment of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) associated with se...
To evaluate the benefit economic and medical of self-monitoring of coagulation compared with conventional follow-up of anticoagulation in a population recently fitted with mechanical heart...
Severe sepsis still carries a high mortality rate despite advantages in intensive care medicine and antimicrobial therapy. The inflammatory and procoagulant host response to infection are ...
An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
A serine proteinase inhibitor used therapeutically in the treatment of pancreatitis, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and as a regional anticoagulant for hemodialysis. The drug inhibits the hydrolytic effects of thrombin, plasmin, and kallikrein, but not of chymotrypsin and aprotinin.
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.
A severe, rapidly fatal reaction occurring most commonly in children following an infectious illness. It is characterized by large, rapidly spreading skin hemorrhages, fever, or shock. Purpura fulminans often accompanies or is triggered by DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.
Repetitive withdrawal of small amounts of blood and replacement with donor blood until a large proportion of the blood volume has been exchanged. Used in treatment of fetal erythroblastosis, hepatic coma, sickle cell anemia, disseminated intravascular coagulation, septicemia, burns, thrombotic thrombopenic purpura, and fulminant malaria.
