fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products

A group of soluble protein fragments produced by the proteolytic action of plasmin on fibrin or fibrinogen. These products impair the hemostatic process and are a major cause of hemorrhage in intravascular coagulation and fibrinogenolysis.

In athletes, the flow limitation may be caused by intravascular lesions, functional kinking of the vessels, or a combination of both [1-4].
In the more advanced stages of the disease, with substantial intravascular lesions, diagnostic accuracy of standard tests is high.

The patients represented typical examples of persons suffering from sport-related flow limitations due to, respectively, subtle functional kinking, an intravascular lesion, and severe functional kinking.
This law shows that the radius and thus cross-sectional area calculated as [pi][r.sup.2] have a high influence on the flow rate distal to the intravascular lesion or kinking of the vessel.
