BACKGROUND To clarify in detail the mechanism underlying the development and exacerbation of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE), we focused on the following factors: the thrombin-antithrombin III complex (TAT), D-dimer and neutrophil elastase (NE). We basically investigated whether NE played an important role in the development of PTE I a mice model. METHODS Nineteen rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and six osteoarthritis (OA) patients underwent total knee… CONTINUE READING
