THE ALTERATION AND REGENERATION OF THE ENDOTHELIUM IN VENOUS THROMBOSIS
- Disorders of the Circulation. // American Medical Association Family Medical Guide;2004, p597
The article focuses on various types of blood circulation disorders. Aneurysm, an abnormal ballooning of a damaged or weakened area in an artery wall, is usually form in the aorta or in arteries in the brain. Thrombophlebitis is a condition that occurs in the superficial veins in the legs, or...
- Blood Cell Enzyme Identified as Possible Cause of Jetlag Thrombophlebitis. // Japanese Biotechnology & Medical Technology;Mar/Apr2002, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p14
Provides information on the enzyme which promotes the formation of blood clots in veins that can lead to thrombophlebitis, developed at Institute of Physical and Chemical Research in Japan. Enzyme which triggers the blood coagulation process when the blood flow slows down; Classes of blood clots.
- Temperature field formed inside a blood vessel under the action of pulsed laser radiation. Astafyeva, L.; Zheltov, G. // Optics & Spectroscopy;Oct2007, Vol. 103 Issue 4, p665
A model that simulates the dynamics of the temperature field formed by pulsed laser radiation inside a biological structure containing blood vessels is developed. The threshold conditions of denaturation of vessel walls and subsequent blocking the blood flow are determined based on the...
- The endothelial surface layer. Pries, A. R.; Secomb, T. W.; Gaehtgens, P. // Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology;Sep2000, Vol. 440 Issue 5, p653
The endothelial lining of blood vessels presents a large surface area for exchange of materials between blood and tissues, and is critically involved in many other processes such as regulation of blood flow, inflammatory responses and blood coagulation. It has long been known that the luminal...
- clotting factor. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p180
An encyclopedia entry for the term "clotting factor" is presented. It refers to a circulating protein that is activated during the formation of a blood clot. There are several clotting factors involved in a complex series of chemical reactions, which lead to blood clotting.
- Chapter 19: PULMONARY EMBOLISM. // Understanding Surgery;2001, p76
This chapter provides information on pulmonary embolism. It is important to note that almost 50% of patients dying in the hospital have some degree of pulmonary emboli. Under certain circumstances, blood flow is diminished and sets up a background for coagulation or clotting to occur. Embolism...
- Commentary. Stevens, Scott M.; Ageno, Walter // Evidence Based Medicine;Apr2006, Vol. 11 Issue 2, p56
The article presents a comment on the study on the detection of presence or absence of deep vein thrombosis by using individual clinical features, structured risk scores and physicians' empirical judgments. DVT has non-specific clinical presentation. D-dimer, a breakdown product of fibrin, is...
- Compression Stockings and Post-Thrombotic Syndrome. Shaughnessy, Allen F. // American Family Physician;1/1/2005, Vol. 71 Issue 1, p144
Deals with whether off-the-shelf compression stockings can prevent post-thrombotic syndrome in patients with a proximal deep venous thrombosis. Patients who were diagnosed with mild post-thrombotic syndrome in the study; List of post-thrombotic symptoms.
- A shear gradient—dependent platelet aggregation mechanism drives thrombus formation. Nesbitt, Warwick S.; Westein, Erik; Tovar-Lopez, Francisco Javier; Tolouei, Elham; Mitchell, Arnan; Jia Fu; Carberry, Josie; Fouras, Andreas; Jackson, Shaun P. // Nature Medicine;Jun2009, Vol. 15 Issue 6, p665
Platelet aggregation at sites of vascular injury is essential for hemostasis and arterial thrombosis. It has long been assumed that platelet aggregation and thrombus growth are initiated by soluble agonists generated at sites of vascular injury. By using high-resolution intravital imaging...
