hypercoagulable states

hypercoagulable states

Conditions in which the tendency for the blood to clot is greater than normal so that coagulation may occur within the blood vessels. Hypercoagulabilty occurs in people with excessive numbers of blood platelets, in the Budd-Chiari syndrome, in women on the oral contraceptive pill and in people with cancer.

Calcified right atrial wall thrombus (RAWT) is a rare entity and is usually associated with intra cardiac catheters, malignancy and hypercoagulable states. We report a case of 20-year-old female who had rheumatic valvular heart disease detected to have calcified RAWT incidentally during routine intraoperative transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE).
There were no vascular risk factors except PNH found in this patient including hypercoagulable states, oral contraceptive use, paradoxical emboli related to an intracardiac shunt (patent foramen ovale or atrial septal defect), atherosclerotic risk factors, or cardiac arrhythmias.
Risk factors for superior ophthalmic vein thrombosis (SOVT) are multifactorial and include sinoorbital infections, autoimmune disorders (such as systemic lupus erythematosus, sarcoidosis, Behcet's syndrome, and Grave's disease), hypercoagulable states (such as pregnancy, use of oral contraceptive pills, sickle cell trait, and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia), and systemic malignancies.
[1] Trauma, atherosclerotic plaque thrombosis, external compression, hypercoagulable states, and oral contraceptives are other reasons of ischemia.
Furthermore, the coexistence of HHT and/or PFO with inherited hypercoagulable states may identify subjects at higher risk for paradoxical embolism.
Conversely, in another study, thrombin generation following acute stroke measured within 2 weeks and at 1 month after stroke showed elevated ETP and peak thrombin concentrations [16, 32], similar to other hypercoagulable states such as VTE and age in hormone replacement therapy [18, 20, 29, 33].
Factors that may be affecting this drug's efficacy could be lack of proper compliance, various hypercoagulable states, or certain mutations that can cause undesirable metabolism of rivaroxaban [20].
It is classically associated with end-stage renal disease, hyperparathyroidism, a variety of hypercoagulable states, diabetes, and/or obesity.
Thrombophilias are hypercoagulable states, hereditary or acquired (Konecny 2009).
ARI can also be attributed to less common causes such as trauma, (5) idiopathic dissection of the renal artery, (6) paradoxical embolism, (7) or underlying hypercoagulable states such as antiphospholipid antibody syndrome.

Probable aetiologies were hypercoagulable states in 21(84%) patients infections in 2(8%) and malignancy in 1(4%).
