A trauma patient's survival depends on the ability to control 2 opposing conditions, bleeding at the early phase and thrombosis at a late phase of trauma. The mixed existence of physiological responses for hemostasis and wound healing and pathological hemostatic responses makes it difficult to understand the mechanisms of the 2 stages of coagulopathy after(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the cellular mechanisms underlying the impaired contractile response to beta adrenoceptor stimulation in diabetic hearts. Chronic diabetes was induced in rats by a streptozotocin injection. Four to six weeks later, papillary muscles isolated from diabetic hearts exhibited marked reductions in the positive inotropic(More)
OBJECTIVES To validate scoring algorithm criteria established by the Japanese Association for Acute Medicine (JAAM) for disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and to evaluate its diagnostic property by comparing the two leading scoring systems for DIC, from the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare (JMHW) and International Society on Thrombosis and(More)
The present report from The Japanese Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis provides an expert consensus for the treatment of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in Japan. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) may be classified as follows: asymptomatic type, marked bleeding type, and organ failure type. Although treatment of DIC is important,(More)
1. The present work was carried out in order to determine whether a decrease in cardiac Na+-Ca2+ exchanger (NCX) activity observed in diabetes is caused by a reduction in NCX protein and mRNA levels and to elucidate the significance of this decrease in alterations in [Ca2+]i homeostasis in diabetic cardiomyocytes. 2. The NCX current was significantly(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and head injury on posttrauma coagulation and fibrinolysis. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING General ICU (tertiary care center) in a city hospital serving a population of 150 million people. PATIENTS Forty trauma victims: 15 with DIC; 25 without DIC. INTERVENTIONS(More)
To evaluate the role of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and to determine the influence of antithrombin, protein C, and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 on multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) and outcome in patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS), we made a prospective cohort study. The study subjects consisted of(More)
INTRODUCTION Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with an antifibrinolytic phenotype is characterized by microvascular thrombosis leading to poor outcome at the late-stage of trauma. To test the hypothesis that DIC with a fibrinolytic phenotype at an early stage of trauma also contributes to a poor outcome due to severe bleeding, we conducted a(More)
INTRODUCTION To validate the Japanese Association for Acute Medicine (JAAM) disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) scoring system in patients with severe sepsis, we conducted a multicenter, prospective study at 15 critical care centers in tertiary care hospitals. METHODS This study included 624 severe sepsis patients. JAAM DIC was scored on the day(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of the present study were to confirm the consumption coagulopathy of disseminated intravascular coagulation with the fibrinolytic phenotype at an early phase of trauma and to test the hypothesis that thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor, neutrophil elastase, and plasmin contribute to the increased fibrinolysis of this type of(More)
