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 is a complex systemic thrombohemorrahgic disorder, which may contribute to organ failure. We aimed to compare the detection rate of the disseminated intravascula...
To provide a review of the definition, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, and treatment of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC).
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is an acquired syndrome characterized by the intravascular activation of coagulation with loss of localization arising from different causes. It can origin...
We herein describe a patient with chronic disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) induced by a giant thrombus in the left atrium.A 63-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for evaluation of...
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is an intermediary mechanism of disease which develops secondary to many causes including sepsis, trauma and malignancies. This review attempts to summaris...
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.
