Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) pathophysiology is still unclear. A transient intracoronary thrombosis dissolved at the time of angiography has been hypothesized. We aimed to evaluate the prevalence of thrombophilic disorders in TTC patients. In 75 TTC women, 75 age- and sex-matched acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients, both enrolled during the acute phase, and in 75 control subjects, we compared the prevalence of congenital and acquired thrombophilic alterations and the values of clotting and endothelial activation biomarkers...

Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is the second most common retinal vein disease with significant visual loss via thrombus or compression of vein wall. Thrombophilia is the predisposition to vascular thrombosis with the existence of genetic defect that leads to blood hypercoagulability. This report describes the case of a 55 year old male patient, with an active life who presented himself at the emergency room with acute visual lose, insidious and progressive visual field constriction, without any known history of neurological or vascular diseases...

AIM: To analyze current practices in Bulgaria regarding antithrombotic medication (AM) during pregnancy, and to compare them with the ones recommended in literature. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 84 pregnant women who were low dose aspirin (LDA) or/and low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or unfractionated heparin (UH), data about AM were collected and analyzed. A descriptive analysis was performed of the indications for AM, its type, the applied doses and therapeutic regimens...

PURPOSE: To assess the occurrence of post thrombotic syndrome and quality of life in patients with upper extremity deep venous thrombosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-seven patients with the previous diagnosis of upper extremity venous thrombosis, from January 2006 to March 2010, were recruited for clinical evaluation, ultrasonography studies and an interview utilizing the Modified scale and the SF-36 questionnaire RESULTS: Only II (40.7%) of the patients responded, there women and men, average age of 53...

INTRODUCTION: Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) is an immune thrombophylia of unknown etiology which leads to vascular thrombosis and gestational complications. CLINICAL REPORT: A 27-year old woman who had been diagnosed APS four years before was admitted in the Emergency Room five days after a spontaneous delivery due to [corrected] pain in the upper right abdominal quadrant. Blood analysis revealed AST and ALT rise and thrombocytopenia. CT scan was suggestive of liver infarction due to venous ischemia...

Antiphospholipid antibodies (APLA) present very heterogeneous groups of antibodies which can significantly influence processes on different levels of coagulation cascade depending on effects of phospholipid surfaces on blood coagulation. This usually leads to a particular level of thrombophylia. Clinical syndrome accompanying positive APLA, such as antiphospholipid syndrome, was defined by clinical and laboratory symptoms. This clinical syndrome can be a primary syndrome, if other disorders with ability to induce generation of antibodies can be excluded, or a secondary syndrome...

AIM: The aim of this paper is to present the latest developments in therapy and prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis in gynecology and obstetrics. DATA EXTRACTION: The data presented in the paper have been extracted from the Current Contents database. In the introduction, the coagulation cascade is described, and certain coagulation abnormalities caused by deficiency or decreased activity of coagulation factors are highlighted. The most prominent signs of deep vein thrombosis in pregnant women are swelling and tenderness of the affected leg, sometimes accompanied with fever and leucocytosis...

AIM: To reject one of the variants of inherited thrombophylia in a 64-year-old patient with deep thrombosis of leg veins and high hemoglobin and red cell levels. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was made of antithrombin III and protein C, protein S levels; resistance to activated protein C; molecular structure of DNA coding factor 5; methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase. RESULTS: The patient was diagnosed to have heterozygote factor V Leiden mutation...

The association between long haul travel and the risk of venous thromboembolism are suspected for long time. Mostly air travel related thrombosis series have been reported in the literature. Risk factors can be classified as: 1. travel related factors (coach position, immobilization, prolonged air travel, narrow seat and room, diuretic effect of alcohol, insufficient fluid intake, dehydration, direct pressure on leg veins, rare inspiration). 2. air plane related risk factors (low humidity, relative hypoxia, stress)...

Alteration of antithrombin III (ATIII) activity, glycemia level dependent, exists in diabetes mellitus. In this study the ability of a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) (Fluxum, Alfa-Wassermann S.p.A., Bologna, Italy), as well as unfractioned héparin, to preserve ATIII activity from glucose-induced alterations, both in vitro and in vivo, is reported. The subcutaneous and intravenous LMWH and heparin administration increases basal depressed ATIII activity in diabetic patients. Heparin shows an equivalent effect on both anti-IIa and anti-Xa activity of ATIII, while LMWH is more effective in preserving the anti-Xa activity...
