In a consecutive series of 11 young patients with clinical evidence of cerebral infarction, platelet function and plasma lipid levels were examined. The results show that increased platelet aggregability characterizes the patient group as a whole. Hyperlipidemia was frequently found, and the number of heavy smokers was high. It is suggested that all younger(More)
Parameters of importance for the development of thrombosis were investigated in a patient with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) and profound sensorineural hearing loss. During the acute phase, platelet hyperaggregability, shortened platelet survival, and decreased fibrinolytic activity were found. The possibility is discussed that the etiology of the(More)
Platelet aggregation and serotonin-release in vitro and some coagulation and fibrinolysis parameters were studied closely in 12 patients with non-complicated acute transmural myocardial infarction from the very beginning, for 3 weeks. The aggregability with ADP, epinephrine and collagen and the serotonin-release was significantly reduced the first days.(More)
