BACKGROUND: Prevention of a disturbance of the blood vessel allows phlebotomists to collect a blood specimen by venipuncture that will truly mirror the patient condition. This study was aimed to evaluate the impact of repeated fist clenching and maintenance of the fist during blood collection by venipuncture for routine hematology testing. METHODS: Blood were collected from 16 healthy volunteers with two separate sequential procedures, entailing standard venipuncture with hand opened throughout blood collection, or clenching the fist six times before venipuncture and maintaining the fist until completion of blood collection...

BACKGROUND: Higher red cell distribution width (RDW) predicts adverse events in patients with cardiovascular diseases. However, there are limited data regarding the relationship between RDW and thromboembolism risk in the patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). We aimed to investigate the association between RDW and CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc scores used for the evaluation of thromboembolic risk in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS: Our study included 99 patients with AF (68 paroxysmal AF; 31 persistent AF)...

REVIEW
Martina Montagnana, Elisa Danese
Red cell distribution width (RDW) is an index which primarily reflects impaired erythropoiesis and abnormal red blood cell survival. In last years the interest in this marker has considerably grown and now a lot of data are available indicating that this simple and inexpensive parameter is a strong and independent risk factor for death in the general population. Moreover, several investigations have been performed to investigate the role of RDW in cardiovascular and thrombotic disorders. Contrarily, there are relatively few reports focusing on RDW in the area of oncology and to date none review have been performed in this specific field...

BACKGROUND: Elevated red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a valid predictor of outcome in acute heart failure (AHF). It is unknown whether elevated RDW remains predictive in AHF patients with either preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥50% or reduced LVEF (<50%). METHODS AND RESULTS: Prospective local registry including 402 consecutive hospitalized AHF patients without acute coronary syndrome or need of intensive care. The primary outcome was all-cause mortality (ACM) at 1 year after admission...

An appropriate and timely management, including early diagnosis and accurate prognostication, is the mainstay for managed care of patients with acute ischemic stroke. Since red blood cell distribution width (RDW) was found to be an independent predictor of clinical outcomes in patients with thrombotic disorders, we designed a retrospective observational study to investigate whether the RDW value may also retain predictive significance in stoke patients undergoing thrombolytic therapy. This retrospective study was based on all patients admitted to the Emergency Department (ED) of the University Hospital of Verona (Italy) with a diagnosis of ischemic stroke, who underwent systemic thrombolysis between January 2013 and June 2015...

OBJECTIVES: Recent research has indicated that red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with the prognosis of cardiovascular diseases such as chronic heart failure and coronary heart disease. We aimed to study the predictive value of RDW for bleeding events in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) during the administration of 110 mg of dabigatran twice a day after catheter ablation. METHODS: One hundred and seventy-two NVAF patients who were hospitalized and received catheter ablation in Jiangsu Provincial People's Hospital from January 2014 to January 2015 were enrolled (110 mg of dabigatran was administered orally to outpatients preoperatively twice a day for 3 weeks)...

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are increasingly used for end-stage heart failure. However, post-LVAD complications are potentially devastating and remain unpredictable. The red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a predictor of adverse events in patients with heart failure but has not been studied in the LVAD population. We reviewed laboratory results and clinical outcomes for all continuous flow LVADs implanted from 2004 to June 2014 (N = 188). Cox proportional hazards models adjusted for demographic, cardiovascular, and laboratory variables were used to assess association of preimplant RDW tertiles with mortality, gastrointestinal bleed, infection, pump thrombosis, and stroke more than 1 year of follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer (GC) is the fifth most common cancer worldwide. Since development is usually asymptomatic, it is generally diagnosed at an advanced stage. The value of screening in patients with nonspecific symptoms for GC is controversial. AIM: The study aimed to evaluate whether hematological parameters (platelet count (PC), mean platelet volume (MPV), MPV/PC ratio, red blood cell distribution width (RDW), neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR)) are useful markers to differentiate between gastric cancer patients and healthy individuals...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet count (PLT) routinely tested as part of the complete blood count are indicative of systemic inflammation. The prognostic significance of NLR and PLT in cancer was demonstrated in many studies while the role of RDW has been hardly investigated. The present study aimed to assess the association of RDW, NLR, and PLT with survival and tumor grade in glioma patients. METHODS: Clinical data from 178 patients with primary gliomas treated in a single institution were retrospectively analyzed...
