The short shelf-life of fresh platelets limits their efficient inventory management and availability during a massive transfusion protocol. Risk of insufficient availability can be mitigated by building an inventory of cryopreserved platelets (CPs).

The short dating period of room temperature-stored platelets (PLTs; 5-7 days) limits their availability at far-forward combat facilities and at remote civilian sites in the United States. PLT cryopres...
Transfusion of cryopreserved platelets (cryoplatelets) is not common but may replace standard liquid-preserved platelets (PLTs) in specific circumstances. To better understand cryoplatelet function, f...
Massive bleeding is a major cause of death both in trauma and non-trauma patients. In trauma patients, the implementation of massive transfusion protocols (MTP) led to improved outcomes. However, the ...
Patients with multirefractory immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) have limited treatment options. Recent data suggest that specific anti-platelet antibodies may cause destruction of platelets by favoring pl...
A Pilot Study of Transfusion of rhTPO-Derived Autologous Platelets Cryopreserved with ThromboSol and 2% DMSO in Patients with Gynecologic Malignancy Receiving Carboplatin
Objectives: - Determine the corrected count increment of autologous transfused platelets that had been stored by cryopreservation with ThromboSol. - Determine the abilit...
This study aims to estimate the difference between predicted and provided massive transfusion in adult trauma patients admitted to university hospitals in urban India.
The goal of this study is to assess whether running deep wound stiches will be superior to deep interrupted stiches in body contouring surgeries in massive weight loss patients. This is a ...
This is a prospective, multi-center, controlled, randomized, non-inferiority study to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of Conventional versus Mirasol-treated apheresis platelets in subj...
Method of psychotherapeutic treatment based on assumption of patients' personal responsibility for their own behavior. The therapist actively guides patients to accurate self-perception for fulfillment of needs of self-worth and respect for others. (From APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 8th ed.)
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
