Evaluation of fibrin and platelet deposition on a human umbilical endothelial cell surface in perfusion chamber experiments using human whole blood.
Open-label, non interventional study Perfusion chamber experiment will be performed in 30 healthy patients. The Impact of different pH-solutions on thrombus lysis will be evaluated in an in-vitro second step
D-Dimer content of the thrombus reflecting the size of the thrombus.
All Subjects will have two perfusion chamber experiment as follow with an estimated maximum of blood loss of 165ml:
Before blood perfusion, perfuse the system including the chambers with human umbilical vein endothelial cell coated glass slides (HUVEC), with sodium chloride (NaCl) (0.9%), to ensure no leaks and to remove all air bubbles.
Blood is drawn from a vein in the arm with a Surflo® Winged Infusion Set, 19G (Terumo Europe, Leuven, Belgium) with a pump (Masterflex® L/S™, Cole-Parmer Instrument Company, Vernon Hills, Illinois, USA). Five mL of blood is discarded before each perfusion.
Three in serial placed flow chambers (with HUVEC) heated to 37°C are used. They are made of a Plexiglas block through which a cylindrical hole of 0.2 cm in diameter is machined. The aorta pieces are perfused at 10 mL/min for 5 minutes, followed by a 30 seconds perfusion with NaCl (0.9%).
The plasmin degraded thrombus D-Dimer content will be further evaluated under different conditions (different pH solutions).

Arterial thrombosis is increasingly recognized in children and is mostly related to the presence of an arterial catheter or an ischemic stroke. Treatment of children with arterial thrombosis varies wi...
Coagulation factors are essential for robust clot formation. However, elevated levels of procoagulant factors are associated with in increased risk for venous thrombosis. The precise contribution of t...
Portal vein thrombosis is defined as any thrombosis that develops in the portal vein system. It is considered a very rare and extremely lethal complication of hepatopancreatobiliary surgery.
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is increasingly recognized as a thrombophilic disorder. However, no further investigation of risk factors has been conducted to date. This study evaluated classic and dis...
Recent genome wide association studies (GWAS) identified a novel susceptibility locus for thrombosis, harbouring the SLC44A2 gene which encodes the Solute Carrier Family 44 Member 2 protein (SLC44A2)....
Embolism or thrombosis involving blood vessels which supply intracranial structures. Emboli may originate from extracranial or intracranial sources. Thrombosis may occur in arterial or venous structures.
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in a blood vessel within the SKULL. Intracranial thrombosis can lead to thrombotic occlusions and BRAIN INFARCTION. The majority of the thrombotic occlusions are associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
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.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment. In developed nations, lateral sinus thrombosis can result from CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; THROMBOPHILIA; and other conditions. Clinical features include HEADACHE; VERTIGO; and increased intracranial pressure.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
