    The article cites several studies related to peripheral arterial embolism. Ever since 1911, when the first successful embolectomy was performed, there has been a steadily growing literature on peripheral arterial embolism. From then until 1934, embolectomy was considered the only weapon against...

    Objective. To determine the correlation between activated clotting time (ACT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) in patients receiving intravenous unfractionated heparin therapy, and the accuracy of the ACT in predicting the level of anticoagulation. Design. Paired aPTT and ACT...

  • SPEED OF ANTICOAGULATION IN DVT. Douglas, Montgomery; Strelnick, Alvin // Journal of Family Practice;Mar1998, Vol. 46 Issue 3, p202 

    This article focuses on a study related to the speed of anticoagulation in deep vein thrombosis (DVT). In 1986, the researchers of the current study reported that DVT patients who failed to achieve the lower limit of activated partial thromboplastin time within the first 24 hours after receiving...

  • The Risk of Recurrent Venous Thromboembolism in Men and Women. Kyrle, Paul A.; Minar, Erich; Bialonczyk, Christine; Hirschl, Mirko; Weltermann, Ansgar; Eichinger, Sabine // New England Journal of Medicine;6/17/2004, Vol. 350 Issue 25, p2558 

    Background: Whether a patient's sex is associated with the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism is unknown. Methods: We studied 826 patients for an average of 36 months after a first episode of spontaneous venous thromboembolism and the withdrawal of oral anticoagulants. We excluded pregnant...

  • ORAL ANTICOAGULATION RELATED INTRACEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE: MORE QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS. Terecoasa, Elena; Tiu, Cristina; Huertas, Nuria; de LeciƱana, Maria Alonso // Romanian Journal of Neurology;2012, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p13 

    Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) is the most feared and devastating complication of oral anticoagulant therapy. When an ICH occurs, the patient's situation hinges on the balance between how great is the embolic risk while not receiving anticoagulants, and how big is the threat of the hemorrhage if...

  • Fragmin.  // Royal Society of Medicine: Medicines;2002, p257 

    The article presents information on fragmin. The drug is a proprietary, prescription-only preparation of the dalteparin sodium, which is a low molecular weight version of heparin. It can be used for long-duration prevention of venous thrombo-embolism, particularly in orthopaedic use, It is...

  • embolism. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p261 

    An encyclopedia entry for "embolism" is presented. It refers to the blockage of an artery by an embolus. Substances that may act as an embolus include a blood clot, a bubble of air or other gas, a piece of tissue or tumour, a clump of bacteria, bone marrow, cholesterol or fat. The different...

    Arterial embolism with lower limb ischemia is a rare manifestation of paraneoplastic hypercoagulability in cancer patients. We report a unique case of fatal thromboembolism involving both circulations associated with a poorly differentiated neuroendocrine tumor of the lung with rapid progress...

    The authors comment on a study which examined the occurrence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with a single negative whole-leg compression ultrasound (CUS) result who did not receive anticoagulation. The meta-analysis of 7 studies, published within the issue, suggests that withholding...
