This is a retrospective study performed on medical records, in order to compare the number of venous thromboses, the surgery duration, the complications rate and the duration of anastomosi...
The study will examine the prevalence of venous thromboembolism in children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia treated in accordance with NOPHO ALL-2008. The investigators will prospective...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the ability of new D-Dimer assay combined with a clinical pretest probability (PTP) to safely exclude pulmonary embolism (PE) or Deep Venous Thr...
Part 1 - Evaluate the real-world implementation of extended prophylaxis with betrixaban in the acutely ill hospitalized medical population Part 2 - Describe patterns of Venous thromboembol...
In recent years, the lysine analogs tranexamic acid (TXA) has gained wide use in cardiac surgery as a blood-sparing agent. However, the safety of the drug and its impact on overall outcome...
Pediatric ARDS continues to be a management challenge in the ICU with prolonged hospitalizations and high mortality. Thromboembolic pulmonary embolism and in situ pulmonary artery thrombosis might rep...
Venous leg ulcers are open lesions between the knee and the ankle joint, which occur in the presence of venous insufficiency. There are theories to explain the causes of venous insufficiency, which ul...
Thrombosis of unusual venous sites encompasses a large part of consultative hematology, and is encountered routinely by practicing hematologists. Contrary to the more commonly encountered lower extrem...
The real mechanism for the development of the later stages of chronic venous insufficiency still remains unclear. Venous hypervolemia and microvascular ischemia have been reported to be the consequenc...
In PNH thromboembolic events (TEs) represent the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Between Dec 2013 and Jan 2016 37 PNH patients (pts) (23 PNH, 14 AA/PNH; 51% (19/37) females; median age 44 y...
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.
The presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids (ANTIBODIES, ANTIPHOSPHOLIPID). The condition is associated with a variety of diseases, notably systemic lupus erythematosus and other connective tissue diseases, thrombopenia, and arterial or venous thromboses. In pregnancy it can cause abortion. Of the phospholipids, the cardiolipins show markedly elevated levels of anticardiolipin antibodies (ANTIBODIES, ANTICARDIOLIPIN). Present also are high levels of lupus anticoagulant (LUPUS COAGULATION INHIBITOR).
A fulminant infection of the meninges and subarachnoid fluid by the bacterium NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS, producing diffuse inflammation and peri-meningeal venous thromboses. Clinical manifestations include FEVER, nuchal rigidity, SEIZURES, severe HEADACHE, petechial rash, stupor, focal neurologic deficits, HYDROCEPHALUS, and COMA. The organism is usually transmitted via nasopharyngeal secretions and is a leading cause of meningitis in children and young adults. Organisms from Neisseria meningitidis serogroups A, B, C, Y, and W-135 have been reported to cause meningitis.

A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
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.
