Anticoagulants, such as heparin and warfarin, are commonly used in the treatment and prevention of thromboembolic events. The risk of developing warfarin-induced skin necrosis (WISN) with warfarin is ...
Extravasation of vasopressors can have serious complications varying from simple local reactions to skin necrosis and compartment syndrome. Here, we presented bullous dermatitis and skin necrosis whic...
The vitamin K antagonist, warfarin, is the most commonly prescribed oral anticoagulant. Use of warfarin appears to be associated with an increase in systemic calcification, including the coronary and ...
Solar ultraviolet (SUV) irradiation causes skin disorders such as inflammation, photoaging, and carcinogenesis. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays a key role in SUV-induced skin inflammation, and targetin...
Skin necrosis with vitamin k antagonists are rare. They affect more frequently middle-aged and obese women, often within 10 days after initiating of treatment. They occur most often in a context of t...
Atrial Fibrillation is a heart condition in which people are treated with blood thinners such as warfarin to decrease the risk of stroke. Large studies have shown that when patients adjust...
The purpose of this study is to determine the importance of uptake drug transporters in the drug disposition of warfarin. We predict that the elimination of warfarin will be decreased whe...
Patients with atrial fibrillation are often anticoagulated with Warfarin. Warfarin has a narrow therapeutic window requiring frequent monitoring. This study aims to investigate the inciden...
Individuals taking warfarin often need frequent dose changes as the international normalized ratio (INR) gets too high or too low which could result in a higher risk of thromboembolism, bl...
The purpose of this study is to assess how blood clotting and thinning time is effected when a single dose of warfarin is given alone and when a single dose of warfarin is given with mipom...
An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.
Skin diseases affecting or involving the cutaneous blood vessels and generally manifested as inflammation, swelling, erythema, or necrosis in the affected area.
Insoluble polymers of TYROSINE derivatives found in and causing darkness in skin (SKIN PIGMENTATION), hair, and feathers providing protection against SUNBURN induced by SUNLIGHT. CAROTENES contribute yellow and red coloration.
A family of proteins that were originally identified by their ability to cause NECROSIS of NEOPLASMS. Their necrotic effect on cells is mediated through TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR RECEPTORS which induce APOPTOSIS.
Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
Anything that breaks the skin is a wound because when the skin is broken, there's a risk of germs getting into the body and causing an infection. Follow and track Wound Care News on BioPortfolio: Wound Car...
