Venous Thrombosis in Turner Syndrome

2014-08-27 03:33:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

Epidemiology of Thromboembolism Disease: A Cohort Study

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,...

Study of the Risk of Venous Thromboembolism in Members of Family of Women With Thromboembolic Venous Disease.

A transverse case-control study comparing the prevalence of an earlier thromboembolic venous disease in first-degree family members of patients (propositi) who developed a first episode of...

CT for Pulmonary Thromboembolic Disease

Examine the feasibility and efficacy of individually optimized uniform contrast enhancement in CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) for the diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolic disease.

Prevalence of Asymptomatic Thrombosis in Multiple Myeloma

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...

Hypercoagulability and Thromboembolic Risk in Patients With Malignant Disease, Evaluated by Thrombelastograph (TEG®)

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...

Direct Oral Anticoagulants in the Treatment of Venous Thromboembolic Disease.

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...

Blood coagulation system in patients with chronic kidney disease: a prospective observational study.

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...

Reduced proliferation of endothelial colony-forming cells in unprovoked venous thromboembolic disease as a consequence of endothelial dysfunction.

Venous thromboembolic disease (VTD) is a public health problem. We recently reported that endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFCs) derived from endothelial cells (EC) (ECFC-ECs) from patients with VTD...

Results from more than 20 years of surgical pulmonary endarterectomy for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension in Denmark.

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 ...

Microarray expression profile of circular RNAs in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a rare but debilitating and life-threatening complication of acute pulmonary embolism. Circular RNAs (circRNAs), presenting as covalently close...

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.
