Anticoagulation therapy for thromboembolism prevention: a case of warfarin-induced skin necrosis in the setting of protein C deficiency.

Patients with protein C deficiency are at increased risk for thrombolic diseases. Non-vitamin K antagonist anticoagulant options should be considered in patients with warfarin-induced skin necrosis (W...

Oral warfarin intake affects skin inflammatory cytokine responses in rats.

Warfarin is an anticoagulant used in prevention/prophylaxis of thromboembolism. Besides the effects on coagulation, non-hemorrhagic reactions have also been documented. Although cutaneous reactions we...

Management of Mastectomy Skin Necrosis in Implant Based Breast Reconstruction.

Mastectomy skin necrosis is a significant problem after breast reconstruction. This complication may lead to poor wound healing and need for implant removal, which may delay subsequent oncologic treat...

Salvage of a Necrotic Flap.

To report the case of a 68-year-old woman with a skin basal cell carcinoma on the nasal dorsum. After excision, the soft tissue defect was reconstructed using a rectangular advancement flap. However, ...

Improvement of Flap Necrosis in a Rat Random Skin Flap Model by In Vivo Electroporation-Mediated HGF Gene Transfer.

Despite great understanding of underlying mechanisms for flap necrosis and advances in surgical techniques, flap necrosis remains a critical issue. In the present study, the authors investigated the e...

Warfarin Patient Self-Monitoring

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...

Drug Interaction Study of Rifampin and Warfarin in Healthy Volunteers.

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...

Warfarin - How Good Are we at Maintaining Target Range ?

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...

A Study to Determine the Effects of Multiple Doses of Mipomersen (200 mg SC) on the Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics of Single-dose Warfarin

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...

Clarification of Optimal Anticoagulation Through Genetics

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
