OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess differences in the gene expression profile of peripheral blood cells between patients with early recurrent thrombosis vs. patients without recurrent events after withdrawal of anticoagulant therapy for a first episode of unprovoked deep vein thrombosis (uDVT), to identify novel predictors of recurrence. METHODS: In the discovery population (N = 32), a microarray RNA assay followed by RT-PCR confirmation were performed...

INTRODUCTION: Etiology of thrombosis in malignant diseases is multifactorial, and mechanisms that lead to thrombosis include release of the procoagulants from tumor cells (PC), factor related to bed rest, infections, as well as oncological therapy --chemotherapy, hormones, radiotherapy and surgical treatment. Thrombocytosis has frequently been found to be associated with various malignancies. CASE REPORT: 53 years old female patient hospitalised because of hypopharingeal cancer with metastasis in the left neck...

Hypercoagulable states due either to inherited or acquired thrombotic risk factors are only present in approximately half of cases of DVT, but the causes in the other half, remain unknown. The importance of biological risk factors such as hyperlipidemia, hypofibrinolysis and hemorheological alterations in the pathogenesis of DVT has not been well established. In order to ascertain whether the above mentioned biological factors are associated with DVT and could constitute independent risk factors, we carried out a case-control study in 109 first DVT patients in whom inherited or acquired thrombophilic risk factors had been ruled out and 121 healthy controls age (42+/-15 years) and sex matched...

Deep vein thrombosis is a serious complication of oral contraception. The most serious complication, pulmonary embolism, could be lethal. The relative risk of thromboembolic disease is four time higher in women using oral contraception. Both the amount of estrogen and the type of gestagen can increase the relative risk of thromboembolic disease. Oral contraceptives influence procoagulants, fibrinolytic system and inhibitors of coagulation. The choice of oral contraceptive should be very careful. It is advised to use preparations with less then 50 micrograms of ethinyl-estradiol and the type of gestagen that has minimal metabolic side effects, including minimal effect on coagulation...

UNLABELLED: Data relating to stroke patients at a department of internal medicine (50 beds) in a county teaching hospital were studied in period 1990-1994. In this five-year period, 1184 patients were admitted because of some forms of stroke. The mortality due to the stroke was 16.8% (199 patients, deceased group). Autopsy was performed on 159 of these 199 patients (autopsy rate: 79.8%). Age- and sex-matched controls were selected from the survivors (n = 159). The main risk factors of stroke were analyzed in both groups: hypertension, cardiac events (decompensation, atrial fibrillation, and old myocardial infarction), previously verified diabetes, and recurrent stroke in the history...

In 132 consecutive patients treated for pulmonary embolism, duration of symptoms, number of embolic episodes before the diagnosis, circulatory affection (stable circulation (n = 61), reversible shock (n = 60), circulatory collapse (n = 11), electrocardiographic findings and systolic pulmonary pressure (n = 60) were analysed in relation to 1) underlying diseases (orthopedic surgical patients (n = 43), gynecological-abdominal surgical patients (n = 22), preembolic healthy patients (n = 42), miscellaneous medical patients (n = 25)), and 2) the obstruction of the pulmonary vascular bed quantified by a scintigraphic or angiographic score...

In the last 3 years 93 cases of iliofermoral trombosis were treated by surgery. We prefer the method used by Brunner, but under general anaesthesia and using a Bentley-Autotransfusion-System (ATS). The average age of our patients was 55 years (age ranged between 17 and 87 years). No lethal pulmonary embolism was observed. 2, 1 percent of the patients died following apoplex or acute heart failure. Of 67 patients who were operated on 6 months ago or more 70 percent have no further complaints, 28 percent still have some residual edema and only 2 patients have a severe postthrombotic syndrome...

The frequency of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) determined by the 125I-fibrinogen test and confirmed by phlebographic studies, is 20 to 30 % in high-risk patients over the age of forty undergoing major surgery. Comparison of this figure with the incidence of clinically detected thrombosis (5 to 10 %) shows that physical signs are unreliable in the detection of this disease. The ultimate fate of these thrombi is unknown. The majority will probably disappear spontaneously; some will be responsible for the development of a "post-phlebitic syndrome" in the extremities and some will propagate and may produce a fatal pulmonary embolus...
