BACKGROUND: Laboratory analysis of coagulation is often important in emergencies. If vascular access is challenging, intraosseous catheterization may be necessary for treatment. We studied the analysis of coagulation parameters in intraosseous aspirate during stable conditions and after major haemorrhage in a porcine model. METHODS: Ten anesthetized pigs received central venous and intraosseous catheters and samples were taken for analysis of thromboelastography (TEG), prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and fibrinogen concentration...

BACKGROUND: The risk of spinal haematoma in patients receiving epidural catheters is estimated using routine coagulation tests, but guidelines are inconsistent in their recommendations on what to do when results indicate slight hypocoagulation. Postoperative patients are prone to thrombosis, and thromboelastometry has previously shown hypercoagulation in this setting. We aimed to better understand perioperative haemostasis by comparing results from routine and advanced tests, hypothesizing that patients undergoing major upper gastrointestinal surgery would be deficient in vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors because of malnutrition, or hypocoagulative because of accumulation of low molecular weight heparin (LMWH)...

A sulfated polysaccharide, designated as SLEP-1, was obtained after sulfation of the exopolysaccharide (LEP-1) which was isolated from Lachnum. The degree of substitution (DS) of sulfate group of SLEP-1 was 1.97. SEM images of SLEP-1 revealed laminated structure in mesh. UV, FT-IR and (13)C NMR spectra indicated that the LEP-1 was sulfated successfully. The result of the anticoagulant activity in vitro showed that both of LEP-1 and SLEP-1 could effectively prolong activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and thrombin time (TT) of the normal mice plasma, in which SLEP-1 was more effectively than those of LEP-1, and dose-effect relationships were found...

The lupus anticoagulant-hypoprothrombinemia syndrome (LA-HPS) - the association of acquired factor II deficiency and lupus anticoagulant - is a rare disease that may cause a predisposition not only to thrombosis but also to severe bleeding. We are reporting on a 36-year-old female patient presenting with co-existing cerebral venous thrombosis and subdural hemorrhage. The coagulation screening showed a prolonged prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), and a normal fibrinogen level and platelet count...

BACKGROUND: Levels of hemostasis factors vary between and within individuals as a result of genetic and environmental factors and analytical variation of the assays. The current state of the art for defining analytical precision requirements for analytical testing is based on this between- and within-individual (biological) variation. However, information on biological variation in hemostasis variables is still limited.The aim of this study was to determine the biological variation of coagulation variables involved in thrombosis and bleeding to provide a recommendation for performance specifications and to assess whether hemostasis assays fulfill the recommendation...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia (CML) is characterized by derangement of various components of the haemostatic system resulting in thrombo-haemorrhagic complications. Although less common than other myeloproliferative neoplasms, derangement of various components of the haemostatic system is observed in CML. Haemostatic abnormalities have been described in relation to hyperleucostasis and drugs used to treat CML. However, the correlation between haemostatic derangements and phase of CML is unclear in the literature...

American flamingos ( Phoenicopterus ruber ) are commonly kept in zoologic collections. When presented to veterinarians in states of health and illness, evaluation of selected coagulation parameters can aid in assessment of various coagulopathies, as well as other disease processes such as septicemia, vasculitis, and hepatic disease. Sixteen American flamingos (eight males, eight females) were presented for annual health evaluations. A blood sample was collected from the medial metatarsal vein, and prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), fibrinogen, and fibrin degradation products (FDPs) were evaluated using an automated hemostasis analyzer...

The development of a contralateral subdural hematoma (SDH) following unilateral acute SDH evacuation represents a devastating complication that requires urgent treatment in traumatic brain injury. However, few studies have attempted to analyze the risk factors for this phenomenon. The goal of this study was to determine the incidence, mortality and predictive risk factors of delayed SDH contralateral to the side of surgery. In this retrospective study, 210 patients who underwent unilateral supratentorial acute SDH evacuation at a single hospital were included...

Neprilysin (NEP) is an endogenous protease that degrades a wide range of peptides including amyloid beta (Aβ), the main pathological component of Alzheimer's disease (AD). We have engineered NEP as a potential therapeutic for AD but found in pre-clinical safety testing that this variant increased prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT). The objective of the current study was to investigate the effect of wild type NEP and the engineered variant on coagulation and define the mechanism by which this effect is mediated...
