Venous Thrombosis in Turner Syndrome
In the literature, cases of thrombosis in the venous system have been described in girls and women with Turner syndrome. By screening a group of women with Turner syndrome, the researchers wish to find out if this condition is more frequent in this patient population.
In the literature cases of thrombosis in the venous system has been described in girls and women with Turner syndrome. By screening a group of women with Turner syndrome we wish to find out if this condition is more frequent in this patient population. Participants are examined with screening blood tests evaluating thromboembolic disturbances.

The purpose of this study is to determine different risk factors of thromboembolic disease. Different points will be studied 1. do different types of thromboembolic disease (distal DVT,...
Examine the feasibility and efficacy of individually optimized uniform contrast enhancement in CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) for the diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolic disease.
Patients with malignancies are at high risk of developing a thromboembolic complication and their treatment with chemo- and or radiation therapy further enhances this risk. Conventional h...
Venous thromboembolic (VTE) disease is the first cause of maternal mortality in the world. Some other pregnancy pathologies called Placental Vascular Pathologies (PVP) are linked to VTE by...
The present trial investigates a possible use of oral bosentan, which is currently approved for the treatment of symptoms of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), to patients suffering fr...
& Aims: We investigated whether treatment of active inflammatory bowel disease with biologic agents is associated with a reduced risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs), compared with corticostero...
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is defined as pulmonary hypertension (PH) caused by single or recurrent pulmonary emboli and is characterized by chronic obstruction of the pulmonary arte...
Adults with congenital heart disease are a growing population. One of the major challenges in the care of these patients is to prevent thromboembolic episodes. Despite relative young age and no typica...
Thromboembolic complications are the most frequent complications of endovascular treatment of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. The optimal protocol to prevent thromboembolic complications during coil ...
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is much more frequent than previously estimated, potentially occurring with an incidence of several thousand cases per year in Canada. Refinements...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.
A platelet-specific protein which is released when platelets aggregate. Elevated plasma levels have been reported after deep venous thrombosis, pre-eclampsia, myocardial infarction with mural thrombosis, and myeloproliferative disorders. Measurement of beta-thromboglobulin in biological fluids by radioimmunoassay is used for the diagnosis and assessment of progress of thromboembolic disorders.
Animate or inanimate sources which normally harbor disease-causing organisms and thus serve as potential sources of disease outbreaks. Reservoirs are distinguished from vectors (DISEASE VECTORS) and carriers, which are agents of disease transmission rather than continuing sources of potential disease outbreaks.
Analyses for a specific enzyme activity, or of the level of a specific enzyme that is used to assess health and disease risk, for early detection of disease or disease prediction, diagnosis, and change in disease status.
The worsening of a disease over time. This concept is most often used for chronic and incurable diseases where the stage of the disease is an important determinant of therapy and prognosis.
