DISCUSSION:  VWF:Ag expression, a marker of endothelial ± platelet activation, is enhanced in recently symptomatic versus asymptomatic carotid stenosis patients, including in MES-ve patients, and decreases with ADAMTS13 activity over time following atherosclerotic TIA/ischemic stroke.

Abstract Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability. Patients with isolated TBI lose a limited amount of blood to primary injury, but they often develop secondary coagulopathy, resulting in delayed or recurrent intracranial and intracerebral hematoma. TBI-induced coagulopathy is closely associated with poor outcomes for these patients, including death. This secondary coagulopathy is consumptive in nature, involving not only brain-derived molecules, coagulation factors, and platelets, but also endothelial cells in a complex process now called endotheliopathy. A key question is how a loc...

Abstract Platelets play a major role in primary hemostasis, where activated platelets form plugs to stop hemorrhaging in response to vessel injuries. Defects in any step of the platelet activation process can cause a variety of platelet dysfunction conditions associated with bleeding. To make an accurate diagnosis, constitutional platelet dysfunction (CPDF) should be considered once von Willebrand disease and drug intake are ruled out. CPDF may be associated with thrombocytopenia or a genetic syndrome. CPDF diagnosis is complex, as no single test enables the analysis of all aspects of platelet function. Furthermor...

Abstract Arterial thrombus formation is thought to be initiated by platelet adhesion to the subendothelial matrix, but ruptured atherosclerotic plaques are characterized by substantial reduction of matrix proteins compared with stable plaques. Intraplaque erythrocytes and/or fibrin have been reported in high-risk coronary plaques. The aims of the current study were to identify factors that provide scaffolds for platelets at the sites of ruptured coronary plaques and investigate depositions of iron and bilirubin as hemoglobin catabolites in the ruptured plaques. Histological characteristics of plaque components and...

CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that endothelial dysfunction may be involved in the development of anti-MDA5 DM. PMID: 32896243 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

It has been demonstrated that von Willebrand factor (VWF) mediated platelet-endothelium and platelet-platelet interactions are shear dependent. The VWF ’s mobility under dynamic conditions (e.g. flow) is pivota...

CONCLUSIONS: Markers of haemostasis associated independently with low-grade inflammation in the O type blood group and white men. An interplay between the haemostatic and inflammatory systems may already exist in young healthy adults and is dependent on blood groups, sex and race. This extends our understanding on the role of inflammation in the early development of vascular dysfunction prior to cardiovascular compromise. PMID: 32927287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report a case of a 24-year-old woman who was diagnosed as TTP during early pregnancy. A novel mutation was detected: c.3667G>T (p.E1223*). She responded well to plasma therapy during pregnancy and had a child by cesarean section at 32 weeks. TTP is still recurrent in postpartum patients. The plasma transfusion was effective, but caused a severe transfusion reaction. Cyclosporine was administered with the consent of the patient. This case showed cyclosporine-A (CSA) had a positive effect on ADAMTS13 activity. At 11-months follow-up, the patient's blood cells and LDH status were stable and no symptom was seen. Our case...

I read with great interest the article by Yang et al. [1] revealing that upregulation of miR-195 ameliorated aortic valve calcification by repressing von Willebrand factor (VWF) and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38-MAPK) signaling pathway. It indicated that miR-195/VWF/p38-MAPK signaling pathway played a critical role in the pathogenesis of calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD) and that may be beneficial in discovering a novel therapy for patients with CAVD.
