  • Primary immune thrombocytopenia: a ‘diagnosis of
           exclusion’'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Visweshwar; Nathan; Ayala, Irmel; Jaglal, Michael; Killeen, Robert; Sokol, Lubomir; Laber, Damian A.; Manoharan, Arumugam
      Abstract: imageCurrent diagnosis of primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is presumptive, centered on excluding other causes of thrombocytopenia. The diagnosis of ITP is challenging because of the wide range of potential inherited and acquired causes of thrombocytopenia. The treatment of ITP is empiric with steroids, high-dose immunoglobulin, immunosuppressants and thrombopoietin agonists with potential side effects. We searched Medline and Cochrane databases, reviewed the study data and analyzed the individual diagnostic tests for their evidence-based role in the diagnosis of ITP. We then analyzed the strength of the scientific evidence for each diagnostic test in the diagnosis of ITP and identified gaps in the diagnostic accuracy. The diagnostic challenges in ITP include: insufficient evidence for the individual test for diagnosis of ITP, no standardized protocol/guideline for diagnosis, hurdles in accessing the available resources and failure to correlate the clinical data while reviewing the blood smear. We did not identify a diagnostic test that clinicians can use to confirm the diagnosis of ITP. In the absence of a diagnostic test of proven value in ITP, the clinician is best served by a comprehensive history and physical examination, complete blood count and review of the peripheral blood smear in evaluating thrombocytopenia.

  • Pulmonary vein stump thrombosis after lung resection for lung cancer:
           clinical features and outcome

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Park; Ji-Eun; Cha, Seung-Ick; Lee, Deok Heon; Lee, Eung Bae; Choi, Sun Ha; Lee, Yong Hoon; Seo, Hyewon; Yoo, Seung-Soo; Lee, Shin-Yup; Lee, Jaehee; Kim, Chang-Ho; Park, Jae-Yong
      Abstract: imagePulmonary vein stump thrombosis (PVST) is uncommonly encountered postoperative in-situ thrombosis in the stump of pulmonary veins after lung resection. Data regarding the incidence and clinical behaviour of PVST are scarce. Thus, this study aims to investigate the incidence, clinical characteristics and outcome of PVST after lung resection in patients with lung cancer. Follow-up enhanced chest computed tomography (CT) scans acquired after the surgery were retrospectively reviewed to determine PVST presence for patients with lung cancer who underwent lung resection in two tertiary referral centres. Out of the 1885 patients with lung cancer who underwent lobectomy or more extensive lung resection, PVST was observed in 37 patients (2.0%) on their follow-up chest CT. Most stump thrombi were observed in the left superior pulmonary vein [35 (94.6%)] and in patients who underwent left upper lobectomy [34 (91.9%)]. At the last CT follow-up of each patient, 33 (89.2%) exhibited complete resolution, three partial resolution and one stabilization. Eleven (29.7%) patients received anticoagulant therapy after the diagnosis. The rate of complete PVST resolution did not differ significantly between the anticoagulation and nonanticoagulation groups. None of the PVST patients experienced systemic embolic events, regardless of anticoagulation. The PVST incidence diagnosed at routine chest CT follow-up following lung cancer surgery was 2%. PVST was characterized by a benign clinical course without progression and systemic embolization, regardless of anticoagulation. However, further studies are required to determine individualized therapeutic strategies, including anticoagulation.

  • Risk factors for recurrent venous thromboembolism: a real-world analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Fu; Alex Z.; Feng, Xue; Ashton, Veronica; Kharat, Akshay
      Abstract: imageThis study was conducted in patients treated for initial venous thromboembolism (VTE) for approximately 6 months to enhance understanding of the risk factors to inform clinical decision-making about long-term anticoagulation therapy. This retrospective cohort study was conducted using a large administrative claims database in the United States. A Cox proportional hazards model was used to examine demographic and clinical characteristics associated with recurrent VTE. A total of 13 831 patients had an index VTE event, and recurrent VTE occurred in 844 (6.1%) of these patients over a median follow-up of 22.8 months. Baseline comorbidities of arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, and chronic kidney disease were significantly associated with recurrent VTE. During the period of anticoagulation treatment after the index VTE, use of antidepressants was associated with an increased risk of recurrent VTE, whereas use of antibiotics and major surgery were associated with a decreased risk. In the 6 months prior to index VTE, anti-inflammatory agents and major surgery were associated with a decreased risk of recurrent VTE. The type of index VTE was also significantly associated with recurrent VTE, with an increased risk observed in patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) alone or PE with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) versus DVT alone. This real-world analysis identified baseline comorbidities, medications, and index VTE type to be factors predictive of recurrent VTE among patients treated for index VTE for approximately 6 months. Consideration of these factors may assist in the identification of patients who may benefit from extended anticoagulant therapy.

      Authors: Gharbi; Maroua; Elmahmoudi, Hejer; ElBorgi, Wejden; Ouardani, Cherifa; Achour, Meriem; Gouider, Emna
      Abstract: imageFactor XI (FXI) deficiency is a rare inherited bleeding disorder that is highly prevalent in Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry but sporadically observed in most ethnic groups. It is heterogeneous both in clinical presentation and in genetic causality. Although a large spectrum of mutations associated with this disorder has been reported in several populations, genetic data of FXI deficiency in Tunisia are poorly described. The purpose of this study was to determine the molecular basis of FXI deficiency among Tunisian patients. Fourteen index cases from nine unrelated families with FXI deficiency, referred to Hemophilia Treatment Center of Aziza Othmana Hospital, were included in this study. The patients’ F11 genes were amplified by PCR and subjected to direct DNA sequencing analysis. Sequencing analysis of F11 genes identified three distinct mutations; the Jewish type II nonsense mutation E117X, one previously reported missense mutation E602Q and one novel missense mutation V271M, which led to the disruption of the third apple domain structure of FXI. Furthermore, seven polymorphisms previously described, were also detected: C321F, c. 294A>G, -138 A>C, p.D125D, p.T249T, p.G379G, p.D551D. This report represents the first genetic study analyzing the molecular characteristics of factor XI deficiency within Tunisian population. Identification of the Jewish type II mutation in two families, as well as one missense previously reported mutation and one novel mutation confirmed the genetic heterogeneity of this disorder. Screening a large number of Tunisian factor XI deficient would reveal the spectrum mutations causing factor XI deficiency in Tunisia.

      Authors: Akyol; Şefika; Tüfekçi, Özlem; Yilmaz, Şebnem; Ören, Hale
      Abstract: imageWe aimed to investigate the relationship between demographics, clinical features, laboratory findings including monocytosis and clinical course in children with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Data of 100 ITP patients were analysed. Complete blood count findings of the patients at certain time points were evaluated to classify the disease as acute, persistent and chronic. An effect of sex on chronicity was not observed (P = 0.166). Of the patients enrolled in the study, 38% (n = 38) had chronic course. The mean age of patients with the chronic course was 7 ± 4.1 years, which was significantly higher than the other groups (P = 0.007). Sixty-five percent (n = 13) of the patients presenting with mucosal bleeding and 27.4% (n = 20) of the patients presenting with skin bleeding became chronic (P = 0.008). MPV was found to be significantly high in chronic ITP patients (P = 0.049). Monocytosis was noted in 80% of the patients at diagnosis. Intravenous immunoglobulin was used in 84% of the patients with acute ITP; 33% of them developed chronic ITP. The age at diagnosis, presence of mucosal bleeding and increased MPV on admission were high-risk factors for the development of the chronic course. Monocytosis was detected in 80% of the patients on admission, and it may play a role in the pathogenesis of ITP.

  • Left ventricular-aortic angle is associated with platelet reactivity in

      Authors: Mourikis; Philipp; Zako, Saif; Dannenberg, Lisa; M’Pembele, Rene; Hohlfeld, Thomas; Zeus, Tobias; Kelm, Malte; Veulemans, Verena; Polzin, Amin
      Abstract: imageThe impact of aortic stenosis on platelet reactivity is unclear. Previous studies reported contradicting results. The reason for this is unknown. It is known that flow alterations enhance platelet reactivity. A steep left ventricular-aortic angle (LV-AO-angle) is associated with turbulent flow in the aorta ascendens. Therefore, in this study, we hypothesized that LV-AO-angle is associated with platelet reactivity in patients with severe aortic stenosis. We included 289 patients with severe aortic stenosis and performed cardiac computertomography to assess the LV-AO-angle. Platelet function was evaluated by light transmission aggregometry. Platelet reactivity was higher in patients with a steep LV-AO-angle (ADP:

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hashimoto; Naoki; Ogiwara, Kenichi; Matsumoto, Tomoko; Furukawa, Shoko; Takeyama, Masahiro; Nogami, Keiji
      Abstract: imageDisturbances in the balance between coagulation, anticoagulation and fibrinolysis may lead to thrombosis or haemorrhage. Simultaneous assessments of thrombin and plasmin facilitate overall understandings of pathological haemostasis, especially for thrombophilia. Here, we characterized coagulation–fibrinolysis potentials in plasmas with thrombophilia using anticoagulants-mediated thrombin-plasmin generation assay (T/P-GA). T/P-GA was initiated by adding tissue factor, tissue-type plasminogen activator and anticoagulants [recombinant-thrombomodulin (rTM), activated protein (P)C (APC) and antithrombin (AT)], followed by simultaneous thrombin generation and plasma generation monitoring. Patients’ plasmas with PC-deficiency (PC-def), PS-deficiency (PS-def), AT-deficiency (AT-def), factor VLeiden (FVL) and antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) were evaluated. A ratio of peak-thrombin (or peak-plasmin) with and without anticoagulants was calculated as anticoagulants (+)/anticoagulants (−). First, TG, in rTM-mediated, PC-def, PS-def and FVL showed higher peak-thrombin ratios than the controls, whereas AT-def and APS exhibited no differences from the controls. In APC-mediated, PC-def, PS-def and AT-def showed low peak-thrombin ratios, similar to the controls, but immune-depleted PS-def (

  • A novel F13A1 gene mutation (Arg208Pro) in a Chinese patient with factor
           XIII deficiency

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xie; Haixiao; Wang, Mingshan; Jin, Yanhui; Li, Xiaolong; Jiang, Shuting; Yang, Lihong
      Abstract: imageThe objective of the study was to analyse a novel F13A1 gene mutation in a Chinese patient with factor XIII (FXIII) deficiency and explore the molecular mechanism. Pedigree investigation, clinical diagnosis, phenotypic and genetic analysis were conducted. The F13A1 gene was amplified by PCR and directly sequenced. Online bioinformatics software was needed to analyse the mutation. A novel mutation c.515G>C (p.Arg208Pro) in exon 4 was found in the proband. Protein Arg208 is conserved highly among homologous species. Bioinformatics software showed that Arg208Pro mutation might affect the protein function. We preliminarily believed the mutation Arg208Pro was responsible for the decrease FXIII level. We reported a novel mutation in the F13A1 gene, which can flesh out the mutant library.

  • Challenging treatment for refractory acquired haemophilia A complicated
           with severe severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 infection

      Authors: Cives; Tamara Lado; Docampo, Marta Fernández; Fernández, María Teresa Fernández; Señarís, Diana Martínez; Carmona, Alejandro Hevilla; Pérez-Rodríguez, Almudena; Solano, María del Carmen Gómez del Castillo; Fernández, María Fernanda López
      Abstract: imageImmunosuppressive treatment and bypassing agents are used to treat acquired haemophilia A (AHA). On the other hand, COVID-19 infection induces a hypercoagulable state. Managing bleeding, risk of thrombosis, bypassing agents, active infection and immunosuppressive treatment can be challenging. A 72-year-old man was diagnosed with acquired hemophilia A. He received steroids, rituximab and recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa). He developed severe SARS-CoV-2 infection. Due to thrombotic risk, he received low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and developed an iliopsoas hematoma. Because of the risk of thrombosis, treatment with recombinant porcine FVIII (rpFVIII) was requested. Tocilizumab was administered for treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection and unexpected improvement of FVIII levels was noted. Concluding, rpFVIII treatment was well tolerated and effective, easy to monitor and to administer. Tocilizumab may play a role as immunosuppressive treatment for AHA. The role of LMWH remains to be established in patients with coagulopathies.
