BACKGROUND: Apixaban is a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) with a specific inhibition of activated factor X (FXa). In case of bleeding or need of urgent surgery a direct antidote is not yet available. Off-label application of non-specific haemostatic agents, such as prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) and recombinant FVIIa (rFVIIa), has been reported to reverse the effects of apixaban in in vitro and animal studies. The aim of this study is to measure the reversal potential of PCC and rFVIIa in patients with prophylactic apixaban concentrations...

This study evaluated the effect of Gelfoam sponge with and without autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) on bone regeneration in critical-size mandibular defects. The study involved 56 New Zealand rabbits assigned to four groups (14 in each). The osseous defects in group I were irrigated with normal saline, those in group II were grafted with autogenous tibial bone, and those in group III were filled with Gelfoam sponge. Group IV defects were treated as for group III, but the interface between the Gelfoam sponge and bone surface was injected with BMSCs...

INTRODUCTION: ALPPS (Associating Liver Partition and Portal vein Ligation for Staged hepatectomy) is a new two-stage hepatectomy for patients in whom conventional treatment is not feasible due to insufficient future liver remnant (FLR). During stage one of ALPPS, accelerated growth of the FLR is induced by ligation of the portal vein and in situ split of the liver, which prevents interlobar collateral portal circulation and attributes to the accelerated hypertrophy response. This can present a risk for postoperative haemorrhage...

Non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding remains an important emergency condition, leading to significant morbidity and mortality. As endoscopic therapy is the 'gold standard' of management, treatment of these patients can be considered in three stages: pre-endoscopic treatment, endoscopic haemostasis and post-endoscopic management. Since publication of the Asia-Pacific consensus on non-variceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (NVUGIB) 7 years ago, there have been significant advancements in the clinical management of patients in all three stages...

Patients that suffer multiple traumatic injuries often present with uncontrollable haemorrhage and rapidly descend into a viscous death triad consisting of hypothermia, coagulopathy and acidosis. Initial surgical intervention does not aim to provide conclusive repair, but instead strives to stop blood loss while priority is given to correct the patient's metabolic state (Duchesne et al., 2010). However in some cases of massive polytrauma, gaining surgical control of bleeding can be incredibly difficult. As a result a number of topical haemostatic agents were developed for use in military and civilian settings...

Vascular laparoscopic injuries are rare (0.2/1000), however, they are associated with 6-13% morbidity and mortality. Commonest sites for catastrophic haemorrhage are the right iliac vessels, inferior vena cava and less commonly the abdominal aorta. The injuries commonly occur at entry using a Veress needle or insertion of trocars. These risks are inherent to all laparoscopic surgery. A systematic approach for managing these includes prompt recognition, communication within the operative team, immediate resuscitation and specific operative strategies for the control of vascular haemorrhage based on the location and severity of the injury...

This study investigated the effects of chronic supraphysiological dose of testosterone propionate administration cardiovascular function in rats from the perspective of haemostatic function including platelet functions, coagulation, and fibrinolysis. Testosterone significantly enhanced cardiac contractility by enhancing LVSP (10%), dp/dtmax (36.7%), dp/dtmin (14.6%) without altering heart rate, diastolic function, and serum lipid profile. While it has no effect on platelets count, thromboxane B2 levels, and platelet aggregation, testosterone significantly enhanced bleeding time and increased circulatory and thoracic aorta mRNA and protein levels of tPA (46...

Bypassing therapy is essential for the haemostatic management of patients with haemophilia A with inhibitor (PWHA-inh), but the therapeutic effects are inconsistent. We previously reported that activated prothrombin complex concentrates (aPCC) activated factor (F)VIIIin vitro, and was mediated mainly by the activated FVII (FVIIa) contained in aPCC. We have extended those studies to assess global coagulation in whole blood from 18 PWHA-inh in the co-presence of aPCC and FVIII using Ca2+ -triggered rotational thromboelastometry...

Oral factor Xa inhibitors are increasingly used for anticoagulation, but there is no approved reversal agent. Prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC) for the management of Xa-inhibitor-associated bleeding has been described in small case series and one cohort study. Patients on apixaban or rivaroxaban, suffering a major bleed, were treated at nine Canadian hospitals as per existing hospital protocol with a fixed dose of PCC 2,000 units and subsequently recruited for a 30-day follow-up. The treating physician evaluated the haemostatic effectiveness as observed during the first day as good, moderate or poor/none, using an assessment guide...

Etamsylate is indicated for several anti-hemorrhagic indications in human and veterinary medicine. However, etamsylate has been shown to be effective only in specific haemorrhagic situations. Furthermore, mechanism of action of etamsylate is not known but recent research has shown its ability to inhibit heparin binding to several growth factors. We have evaluated the ability of etamsylate to interfere with the activities of heparin. Effects of etamsylate on vasodilatory activity of heparin were evaluated in rat aortic segments...

Triatomines are hematophagous arthropod vectors of Trypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas Disease. Panstrongylus lignarius, also known as Panstrongylus herreri, is considered one of the most versatile triatomines because it can parasitize different hosts, it is found in different habitats and countries, it has sylvatic, peridomestic and domestic behavior and it is a very important vector of Chagas disease, especially in Peru. Molecules produced and secreted by salivary glands and fat body are considered of important adaptational value for triatomines because, among other functions, they subvert the host haemostatic, inflammatory and immune systems and detoxify or protect them against environmental aggressors...

Thromboxane A2 (TXA2 ) activation of TP receptor has been shown contributing to the progression and acute complications of atherosclerosis including endothelial dysfunction, platelet hyperactivity and inflammation. Growing evidence suggests that TP receptor may represent as a therapeutic target in atherosclerosis and related cardiovascular diseases. We investigated whether nstpbp5185, an orally active TP receptor antagonist, exhibits protective effects against atherosclerotic progression. Nstpbp5185 and aspirin were orally administered daily for 12 weeks in high-cholesterol-fed ApoE-deficient mice to examine their anti-atherosclerosis effects...

Surgicel® is one of the most commonly used bioabsorbable topical haemostatic agents. Some articles have reported that Surgicel® remnants might be misdiagnosed as an abscess. However, the number of reports in the cardiothoracic surgical field is limited. Herein, we report a 65-year-old woman who was suspected of having mediastinitis on computed tomography after redo-Bentall operation. Reoperation revealed that internal accumulation of Surgicel® remnants mimicked mediastinitis. It is important to share the use and location of Surgicel® with radiologists...

Triatoma dimidiata, a Chagas disease vector widely distributed along Central America, has great capability for domestic adaptation as the majority of specimens caught inside human dwellings or in peridomestic areas fed human blood. Exploring the salivary compounds that overcome host haemostatic and immune responses is of great scientific interest. Here, we provide a deeper insight into its salivary gland molecules. We used high-throughput RNA sequencing to examine in depth the T. dimidiata salivary gland transcriptome...
