Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Devices
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.
Central Nervous System Venous Angioma
A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.
The study drug, BAY59-7939, is a new drug currently being tested in the prevention of VTE. It directly inhibits factor Xa, a blood component in the pathway which leads to coagulation (clot...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of BAY59-7939 with the safety and efficacy of the licensed drug enoxaparin and a licensed oral vitamin K-antagonist and to f...
Patients undergoing surgery, especially hip and knee surgery, are at high risk for VTE. The administration of drugs for thromboprophylaxis, such as heparins, significantly lowers that risk...
This study will evaluate if extended therapy with oral rivaroxaban can prevent blood clots in the leg and lung that can occur with patients hospitalized for acute medical illness, and comp...
Regulation of Coagulation in Orthopedic Surgery to Prevent Deep Vein Thromboembolism DVT and Pulmonary Embolism (PE); a Study of BAY 59-7939 in the Prevention of VTE in Subjects Undergoing Elective Total Knee Replacement
The purpose of this study is to assess if 10 mg Bay 59-7939, taken once daily as a tablet, is safe and prevents blood clot which may form after a knee replacement operation.
Background Rivaroxaban, an oral factor Xa inhibitor, may provide a simple, fixed-dose regimen for treating acute deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and for continued treatment, without the need for laboratory...
This study aimed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of prophylaxis with rivaroxaban vs. enoxaparin in the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after total hip replacement (THR) and total knee re...
Venous thromboembolism is the third leading cause of cardiovascular death, after myocardial infarction and stroke.(1) Total hip or knee arthroplasty is the procedure with the highest risk of venous th...
Abstract Objective: To compare the efficacy, in the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE), and safety, of rivaroxaban and dabigatran relative to the common comparator enoxaparin. Methods: Two ran...
To the Editor: In their article on the use of oral rivaroxaban for the treatment of acute deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), the EINSTEIN investigators (Dec. 23 issue)(1) report that rivaroxaban had noninfer...
