Rheological, haemostatic, endothelial and platelet abnormalities appear to play a role in the thrombotic complications of hypertension. This prothrombotic/hypercoagulable state in hypertension may contribute to the increased risk and severity of target organ damage. It can be induced by the activated renin-angiotensin system (RAS), with abnormalities in(More)
Endothelial damage, platelet hyperactivity and other changes of blood coagulation may play a role in the vascular complications of essential hypertension. Undesirable changes of haemostasis induced by some anti-hypertensive drugs can encourage the acceleration of atherogenesis. Therefore, the effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE)-inhibitors on(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study is to assess the diagnostic value of the serum transferrin receptor in distinguishing IDA (iron deficiency anemia) from ACD (anemia of chronic diseases) and combination of IDA and ACD (COMBI anemia) as compared to conventional laboratory tests of iron metabolism. BACKGROUND Serum iron and serum ferritin are tests(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelial abnormalities appear to play a role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic/atherothrombotic complications of hypertension. They may contribute to the increased risk and severity of target organ damage. The aim of the study was to investigate the endothelial markers in patients at the early stages of mild-to-moderate untreated(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperhomocysteinaemia is a disorder of methionine metabolism, in which a liver plays a role. It may be frequently due to nutritional deficiencies, particularly low folate status. The aim of the study was to evaluate the serum concentration of homocysteine (Hcy) in patients with chronic liver diseases (CLD), and to assess the relation between Hcy,(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of therapy by perindopril or telmisartan on endothelial/platelet function and on coagulation/fibrinolysis in 20 and 16 hypertensive patients, respectively. The measurements were carried out before and after 1 month of therapy. Both systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure were reduced (P<0.001)(More)
The reasons for non-resolving thrombosis in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) have not been fully elucidated. Despite platelets being implied in its pathogenesis, they have been poorly studied. We hypothesized that platelets would be altered in CTEPH. The aim of our study was to compare selected platelet parameters in CTEPH patients with(More)
The primary hypercoagulable states are inherited thrombotic disorders, resulting from mutations in genes encoding a plasma protein component of one of the coagulation mechanisms. The anticoagulant pathways most frequently involved include antithrombin III, protein C, and protein S deficiencies and activated protein C (APC) resistance. Around 80 % of all(More)
Disorders of haemostasis and haemocoagulation are often seen in patients with cancer as a part of paraneoplastic syndrome. Thrombotic and/or haemorrhagic complications are the second most common cause of mortality in patients with cancer. The evaluation of the haemostatic parameters of 67 patients with gastric cancer have indicated tendency to thrombophilia(More)
