These upregulated endothelial cells would initiate local microthrombus formation and subsequent ischemia to the target organ [57].
The results showed that Dahuang was able to improve blood perfusion and oxygen supply of the intestinal mucosa in sepsis settings by dilating capillaries of the intestinal mucosa, reducing the formation of microthrombus, protecting endothelial cells of the intestinal mucosal capillaries, and increasing the number of functional intestinal mucosal capillaries.[sup][3]
Similar to ischemic brain injury we reviewed above, all of these pathophysiological factors could directly and indirectly cause cerebral venule endothelial dysfunction, microthrombus, and eventually outflow reduction.
This endothelial activation and damage produce an acute inflammatory response, which recruit further innate immune cells as neutrophils and other monocytes, induce platelet aggregation with the consequent procoagulant activity and microthrombus formation.
However, at higher flow rate, oscillatory behaviour of WSST may be due to development of chaos in flow structure, which might have occurred due to random interaction of RBCs and microthrombus of plaque in diseased vessel, such kind of interactions makes the flow domain unstable in direction of flow, and it leads to significant flow component in direction perpendicular to flow direction.
Because naphazoline is a strong agonist of peripheral [[alpha].sub.2]-adrenergic receptors, hypercoagulopathy may result from peripheral vasoconstriction, hypoperfusion, and subsequent hypercoagulation and microthrombus formation.
Lacunar infarct occurs due to occlusion caused by a microthrombus or lipohyalinosis in a penetrating artery in the basal ganglia, thalamus, and pons.
In conclusion, during IVF process, there exists deeper hypercoagulable state and probably formation of microthrombus in the uterine vessels in PCOS women compared with non-PCOS women, which would probably lead to poor microcirculation of endometrium in PCOS women and influence successful embryo implantation as well as subsequent maintenance of clinical pregnancy.
The acute lesion was defined as the presence of at least 1 fibrin microthrombus, either in glomeruli or in small arterioles and/or in arteries; the presence of acute lesion was scored as 1 and the absence as 0.
2, part B), microthrombus formation and presence apoptotic body in the G2 and G3 groups, and more apoptotic bodies were found in the G3 group than in the G2 group.
However, presence of microthrombus is found with a high rate on autopsies.
