Instead we propose the acute severe coagulopathy was a consequence of procoagulant factors inherent to neoplastic tissue, including TF, which were suddenly released into the circulation following rupture and surgery to the ovarian tumour.
However, the activity of Vitamin K-dependent procoagulant factors is inhibited by warfarin at a much slower rate due to the longer half-lives of these factors (Table).
While inflammatory events increase procoagulant factors, they decrease natural anticoagulants and fibrinolytic activity (38).
Cushing's disease is known to carry risks for arterial and venous thrombosis, given the typical accompanying increases in procoagulant factors and reduced fibrinolytic activity (12).
