Study offers clues to 'Broken Heart Syndrome'

...ole, he said, but it is also possible that a blood clot temporarily blocks a major artery of the heart, then dissolves before being detected during coronary angiography. The most common symptom of broken heart syndrome was chest pain, in 70 percent of patients, followed by shortness of breath in 33 per...

Jefferson scientists find high glucose before surgery raises risk of dangerous complications

... (PE), which can cause sudden death, occurs when a clot dislodges from the vein and circulates into the lungs. Each year some 600,000 patients develop PE, which causes or contributes to as many as 200,000 deaths annually in the U.S. He notes that recent studies have begun to show connections between inc...

Cell death following blood 'reflow' injury tracked to natural toxin

...mal mice. After the researchers induced a blood clot injury like a stroke, the same mice showed a 62 percent increase in the area of brain damage compared to normal littermates. Mice that contain more of the PAR-chewing enzyme suffered less brain damage than their normal littermates. To figure out wh...

Scientists work to identify genes that contribute to early heart attack risk

... of fatty deposits in arteries that leads to blood clot formation, angina, heart attack and stroke. This process can begin in childhood and early adult life. Doctors have known that genetic factors contribute to risk for early atherosclerosis but the exact genes involved are not yet known. "We hope th...

Clot-busting drug helps revive cardiac arrest patients

...of a heart attack, coronary heart disease, a blood clot in the lungs, or other causes. The heart stops beating and the brain starts to suffer permanent damage within four to six minutes. Death quickly follows. The standard treatment for cardiac arrest is Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) measures, wh...

Natural vitamin E tocotrienol reaches blood at protective levels

... related to stroke: They rapidly accumulate when a clot in a vessel stops blood flow to the brain, and play a role in irreversible brain injury. To observe the TCT's effectiveness, rodent neural cells were pretreated with extremely low concentrations of TCT; these cells avoided the cell death associate...

Bubbles go high-tech to fight tumors

...boli---is solid. For instance, it could be a blood clot or a gel of some kind. A major difficulty with these approaches is restricting the emboli to the tumor to minimize destruction of surrounding tissue, without extremely invasive procedures, Bull said. The emboli must be delivered by a catheter placed ...

'Bad' enzymes may wear white hats after stroke

...a temporary loss of blood to the brain caused by a clot or burst blood vessel--MMPs chew up damaged brain tissue. This increases the risk of swelling and hemorrhage in the brain. Some current stroke treatment research seeks ways to inhibit MMPs to minimize their danger ?but this new study shows that a dif...

Promising therapies for haemophilia & heart disease

People with haemophilia rely on intravenous infusion of recombinant Factor VIII clotting protein. Professor ...

Redesigned protein accelerates blood clotting

...n, the sticky protein strands that form a web-like clot over damaged tissue. Calcium, a metallic element, must be present for factor VIII to work. Factor VIII has on its surface pocket-like chains of amino acids shaped to hold calcium ions (calcium binding sites). When calcium bonds to it, factor VIII cha...

Exposing a diabetic's clot-resistant wound to an oxygen-free environment would speed the healing process.
