  • Medicine
  • Journal of thrombosis and haemostasis : JTH
  • 2006
TLDR
It is more likely that Jesus death was multi-factorial and finally resulted from severe circulatory and cardiopulmonary compromise than pulmonary embolism, which seems to be more reasonable than the latter. Expand
The history and historical treatments of deep vein thrombosis
TLDR
In these times of change regarding DVT treatment, mainly marked by the arrival of new oral anticoagulants, efforts of physicians through the ages to treat this common disease provide a beautiful example of the history of knowledge. Expand
The crucifixion of Jesus: review of hypothesized mechanisms of death and implications of shock and trauma-induced coagulopathy.
TLDR
Traumatic shock complicated by trauma-induced coagulopathy is proposed as a contributing factor, and possibly the primary mechanism, of Jesus' death by crucifixion. Expand
Improving the use of historical written sources in paleopathology.
  • P. Mitchell
  • History, Medicine
  • International journal of paleopathology
  • 2017
TLDR
Case studies of plague epidemics, crucifixion, and the spinal deformity of King Richard III are used to highlight how archaeological and historical evidence might be better integrated, thus improving the understanding of health and disease in the past. Expand
Interesting Questions in Freakonomics
Freakonomics is more about "entertainment" than it is a serious attempt at popularization. Consequently, rather than conduct a comprehensive fact check, I use the book as a springboard for a broaderExpand

Thrombophilic polymorphisms are common in women with fetal loss without apparent cause.
TLDR
Thrombophilic polymorphisms are common in women with fetal loss without apparent cause and are associated with late pregnancy wastage and Combinations of TP increase the risk for fetal loss. Expand
Prevention of venous thromboembolism: the Seventh ACCP Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy.
This article discusses the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and is part of the Seventh American College of Chest Physicians Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy:Expand
Relative impact of risk factors for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: a population-based study.
TLDR
Estimating the population attributable risk (defined as the percentage of all cases of a disease in a population that can be "attributed" to a risk factor) for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism associated with venous thromboembolism risk factors suggests greater emphasis should be placed on prophylaxis for hospitalized medical patients. Expand
Toward a population-based assessment of death due to pulmonary embolism in New Mexico.
TLDR
Among autopsied persons who died of PE, risk factors and associated diseases are not appreciably different for those who die in or out of the hospital, and this observation, together with published data on the accuracy of clinical diagnostics among persons dying with autopsy-documented PE, suggests that the frequency of death due to this disease is considerably higher than previously thought.

Thromboembolism After Trauma: An Analysis of 1602 Episodes From the American College of Surgeons National Trauma Data Bank
TLDR
Patients who need VTEProphylaxis after trauma can be identified based on risk factors, and the use of prophylactic vena cava filters should be re-examined. Expand
Venous thromboembolism in trauma: a local manifestation of systemic hypercoagulability?
TLDR
Although elevated in seriously injured patients, neither markers of activated coagulation nor specific injury patterns are predictive of VTE, suggesting that VTE after injury is a systemic hypercoagulable disorder with local manifestations of thrombosis related to lower extremity stasis. Expand
Prophylaxis for travel‐related thrombosis? Yes

  • Medicine

TLDR
Reports on passengers with severe pulmonary embolism following long-haul flights diagnosed on arrival to major airports suggest that while the risk increases exponentially with flight duration, the actual prevalence is very low, and differences are probably due to the very short catch-up time at airports. Expand
Uncertain times for research on hemophilia and allied disorders
TLDR
A debate is opened in the columns of this Journal on the best strategy that should be implemented to renew the interest of young physicians in clinical and basic research on hemophilia and allied disorders. Expand
A single genetic origin for a common Caucasian risk factor for venous thrombosis.
TLDR
Haplotype analyses using six dimorphic sites in the factor V gene for 117 Caucasian subjects of Jewish, Arab, Austrian, and French origin who were homozygous for nt A1691 compared with 167 controls support a single origin for this polymorphism. Expand
178 fatal cases of pulmonary embolism in a medical department.
TLDR
The results seem to indicate an increase in the incidence of terminal diseases in the population of elderly, hospitalized patients and change the concept of fatal pulmonary embolism into an agonal incident in a terminal-care medical patient. Expand
