Obtaining a personal history of bleeding is a critical component to the diagnosis of von Willebrand disease (VWD). The collection of this information can be challenging for physicians, however, as the reporting and interpretation of bleeding symptoms is subjective. The need for more precise quantification of bleeding symptoms was recognized and the Vicenza Bleeding Questionnaire was developed in 2005. This questionnaire collects data regarding the presence and severity of bleeding symptoms and generates a bleeding score by summing the severity of all symptoms reported by a patient...

BACKGROUND: Trauma-induced coagulopathy, one of the leading causes of trauma-related death, is detected in about one of four trauma patients upon hospital admission. The current European Management of Major Bleeding and Coagulopathy Following Trauma guidelines, published in 2013, recommend that tranexamic acid (TXA) be administered as early as possible to inhibit hyperfibrinolysis (grade of recommendation (GoR 1A)). Furthermore, it is suggested that protocols for the management of patients with bleeding or showing signs of bleeding include the administration of the first dose of TXA at the site of injury or during transportation to hospital (GoR 2C)...

BACKGROUND: Among patients with necrotizing pancreatitis 15-20% develop infected necrosis, which entails mortality rates of up to 20%. Particularly driven by the results of the Dutch Pancreatitis Study Group there has been a paradigm change from open necrosectomy to step-up treatment with initial percutaneous and/or endoscopic drainage followed, if necessary, by minimally invasive retroperitoneal debridement. AIM OF THE STUDY: Description of case series in which patients underwent video-assisted retroperitoneal debridement (VARD) including follow-up focused on quality of life...

The risk of pregnancy loss in von Willebrand disease (VWD) has been inconsistently reported. Von Willebrand factor (VWF) is a known regulator of angiogenesis, so has the potential to affect placental function. We sought to determine the risk of pregnancy loss and placenta-mediated pregnancy complications in women with VWD, compared with women without VWD. Women with VWD followed in the Southern Alberta Rare Blood and Bleeding Disorders Clinic were invited to participate in a questionnaire (February-June 2014)...

Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, most of the Syrian refugees have immigrated to Turkey due to its open gate policy and the width of the border. By the end of 2015, it was estimated that there were 2.5 million Syrian refugees in Turkey. Many of the Syrian refugees live in Sanliurfa due to its location on the border with Syria. Trichomonas vaginalis, apart from viral agents is the most common parasite among sexually transmitted infection agents. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of T...

INTRODUCTION: haemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder caused by a deficiency in one of the blood coagulation factors. For people affected by severe haemophilia, the deficiency can cause spontaneous internal bleeding. Most young people with severe haemophilia in the UK follow a preventative treatment regimen (prophylaxis) consisting of several intravenous injections of factor concentrate each week. There is good evidence that prophylaxis reduces bleeds whilst also improving quality of life...
