Patient Factors But Not the Use of Novel Anticoagulants or Warfarin Are Associated With Internal Jugular Vein Access-Site Hematoma After Right Heart Catheterization.

CONCLUSION: The incidence of internal jugular vein access-site hematoma is small when using careful access techniques for RHC even with the continued use of novel oral anticoagulants and warfarin. Patient characteristics and co-morbid conditions are related to bleeding complications. PMID: 29207361 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: The PVDF transducer has a better performance in bandwidth compared with commercial transducers. The curved design of the transducer offers a better sensitivity and a higher axial resolution compared with the flat design. Significance: Based on the phantom, animal, and human experiments, the proposed system has the potential to be used in clinical diagnosis of early-stage arthritis.

Authors: Res LCS, Lubberts B, Shah SH, DiGiovanni CW Abstract BACKGROUND: Little is known about the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) following adverse bleeding events associated with antithrombotic drug therapy. This systematic review assesses the HRQOL of patients who suffered a bleeding event related to antithrombotic drug use. METHODS: Literature search was performed using PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library from inception through June 16, 2017. Studies measuring HRQOL after a bleeding event related to antithrombotic drug therapy for primary or secondary prevention of a thromboembolic event were i...

We report the first case of small bowel ulcers due to clopidogrel in a 74-year-old man. He presented with diarrhea and melena after having been taking low-dose aspirin (LDA) and clopidogrel. There was no evidence of bleeding in the stomach, duodenum, or colon. Capsule endoscopy showed multiple ulcers and erosions in the small intestine. Double-balloon endoscopy revealed multiple ulcers throughout the ileum. Examination of the biopsy specimen showed cytomegalovirus infection. His LDA was discontinued and he was prescribed ganciclovir. However, the small bowel ulcers were aggravated. Therefore, clopidogrel was discontinued. ...

Which of the following is less common for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) compared to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR)? Correct answer: d) Acute kidney injury Severe bleeding and new onset atrial fibrillation (AF) are also more frequent after surgery. No significant difference has been noted in the rate of cerebrovascular events between TAVI and SAVR. Back to question

(Natural News) Tourniquets are finally getting some good press, an article in News Wise stated. A newly published study showed that a properly fitted tourniquet can increase the chances of survival for a civilian victim who has suffered traumatic injuries. The technique was originally developed to stop wounded soldiers from bleeding to death. It was...

Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1660853Stress, the nonspecific response to any demand for change, is an adaptive response of the human body to various stimulants. As such, stress-induced hypercoagulation may represent an adaptive response to bleeding. Numerous epidemiological studies have revealed that a correlation exists between stress and thrombotic risk and biochemically, links of the relationship between psychological stress and coagulation pathways have been made. The stress reaction is coupled with neurohormonal changes mediated mainly by the sympathetic neural system and the hypothalamic–pituitary&nda...

Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1657778Thrombocytopenia is a well-known manifestation of acute tropical infectious diseases. The role of platelets in infections has received much attention recently because of their emerging activities in modulation of inflammatory responses, host defense, and vascular integrity. However, while many studies have addressed thrombocytopenia in tropical infections, abnormalities in platelet function have been largely overlooked. This is an important research gap, as platelet dysfunction may contribute to the bleeding tendency that characterizes some tropical infections. The development...

Semin Thromb Hemost DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1660852Hemostasis is a dynamic process that starts in utero. The coagulation system evolves with age, as evidenced by marked physiological differences in the concentration of the majority of hemostatic proteins in early life compared with adulthood. This concept, known as “developmental hemostasis,” has important biological and clinical implications. Overall, impaired platelet function, along with physiologically reduced levels of vitamin K–dependent and contact coagulation factors, may cause poorer clot firmness even in healthy neonates. However, increased activity...
