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.
Malignant hemopathies, such as solid cancers, increase the risk of venous and arterial thromboembolic events. The incidence of symptomatic venous thromboembolic events is particularly high...
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...
Anticoagulation is the treatment of choice in the management of venous thromboembolic disease. This approach is applied to reduce mortality and the risk of recurrences and associated complications. St...
Thromboembolic events are the major factor affecting the prognosis of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Haemostatic alterations are possible causes of these complications, but their roles re...
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is a fatal disease if left untreated, and pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is the potentially curable treatment of choice. We aimed to estimate the current ...
In this Grand Round, we first present a case of a man with decompensated liver disease who subsequently developed a fatal pulmonary embolism, having not been prescribed prophylactic anticoagulation to...
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.
