Glossary for Blood clots
Medical terms related to Blood clots or mentioned in this section include:
- Abnormal blood test symptoms: Abnormal results from diagnostic blood tests.
- Acute leukemia: An acute condition which affects a cell line of the blood which shows little or no differentiation
- Aortic arches defect: A defect in the top part of the aorta (aortic arch) that consists of several arterial branches. There is a variety of defects that can occur and symptoms will be determined by the particular defect involved. Possible types of defects includes aortic coarctation and aortic arch hypoplasia.
- Atherosclerosis: A condition which is a form of arteriosclerosis where atheromas are caused by the aggregation of cholesterol and lipids
- Bacterial endocarditis: Infection and inflammation of the inner layers of the heart, most commonly the valves cause by bacteria.
- Behcet's syndrome: Recurring inflammation of small blood vessels affecting various areas.
- Bleeding symptoms: Any type of bleeding symptoms.
- Blood clots in pregnancy: Blood clots in pregnancy are relatively common and are caused largely by physiological factors related to pregnancy, but can also be caused by pathology unrelated to pregnancy.
- Blood conditions: Conditions that affect the blood
- Blood symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood and its blood cells.
- Blood vessel symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood vessels
- Buerger's disease: Buergers's disease is a recurring inflammation and thrombosis (clotting) of small and medium arteries and veins of the hands and feet
- Cancer: Abnormal overgrowth of body cells.
- Circulation symptoms: Symptoms affecting the circulatory system
- Clotting symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood's ability to clot
- Congenital mitral malformation: Malformations of the mitral valve that are present at birth. The mitral valve allows blood to flow between the two chambers on the left side of the heart. Types of mitral malformation are atresia (absent mitral valve), stenosis (narrowed mitral valve) and parachute mitral valve.
- Contusion: any injury that doesnt break the skin but causes some discoloration
- Dysfibrinogenemia, familial: A rare familial disorder characterized by abnormal fibrinogen. There are various types of this order and they can vary in severity from asymptomatic to causing abnormal bleeding and blood clotting. Examples of subtypes includes Amsterdam, Detroit and Wiesbaden dysfibrinogenemia.
- Endocarditis, infective: A rare condition where a bacterial infection attacks the inner lining of the heart muscle and valves which is called the endocardium.
- Essential thrombocytosis -- same as essential thrombocythemia: A rare blood disorder where the blood contains too many platelets due to excessive megakaryocytes (platelet-producing cells). Platelets are essential for blood clotting but in essential thrombocythemia excessive platelets can cause the blood to form abnormal clots. If the platelets are defective as well then bleeding problems can occur. The severity of the condition is variable.
- Factor V Leiden mutation: A rare genetic condition where a abnormalities in the factor V protein prevent it from being inactivated by protein C which causes the blood to clot. The normal processes which regulate the blood coagulation process is impaired. The homozygous form of the condition carries a greater risk of blood clotting than the heterozygous form.
- Familial primary cryofibrinogenemia: A rare inherited disorder where exposure to cold causes various symptoms due to the presence of cryofibrinogen in the blood which precipitates when exposed to cold.
- Familial renal cell carcinoma: A genetic form of kidney cancer that develops in the lining of the tubules in the kidney and tends to run in families.
- Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
- Heart failure: A condition which is characterized by an inability of the heart to pump blood efficiently and effectively
- Heart symptoms: Symptoms affecting the heart
- Heart valve disorder:
- Hematoma: Local collection of clotted blood
- Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia: A blood disorder triggered by the use of the drug called heparin which is an anticoagulant. The severity of the condition is variable.
- Hip Replacement: The replacement of a hip with an synthetic joint
- Infection: Infections as a symptom.
- Kidney symptoms: Symptoms affecting one or both kidneys.
- Myeloproliferative disease:
- Osteomyelitis: An infection that occurs in bone
- Polycythemia vera: Polycythemia vera refers to a condition in which there is an abnormal rise n the number of blood cells, especially red blood cells.
- Protein S acquired deficiency: A rare disorder involving a deficiency of a blood protein called protein S. Protein S prevents blood from clotting in the veins. A deficiency of protein S can be acquired through liver disease, chemotherapy, lack of vitamin K or through the use of oral anticoagulants or L-asparaginase.
- Renal Cell Carcinoma 2: A genetic form of kidney cancer.
- Renal Cell Carcinoma 3: A dominantly inherited form of kidney cancer which is linked to chromosome 5q.
- Renal Cell Carcinoma 4: A genetic form of kidney cancer.
- Renal cancer, familial: A genetic form of kidney cancer that tends to run in families.
- Skin color changes: Skin changes such as redness, blueness, or whitening.
- Skin symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skin.
- Stomach cancer: Stomach or gastric cancer can develop in any part of the stomach and may spread throughout the stomach and to other organs
- Stomach cancer, familial: Cancer of the stomach that tends to run in families.
- Systemic lupus erythematosus: chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal, though with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare.
- Thrombocythemia: A haematological disorder in which there is excessive proliferation of platelet precursor cells, resulting in increased numbers of platelets in the blood.
- Thrombomodulin anomalies, familial: A defect in a protein involved with anticoagulation which results in an increased risk of developing blood clots which can result in death.
- Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, acquired: A rare blood condition where small blood clots form in blood vessels which reduces the number of blood platelets and results in kidney failure, neurological symptoms and anemia. The condition may be familial or acquired - symptoms tend to recur regularly in the familial form.
- Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, congenital: A rare blood condition where small blood clots form in blood vessels which reduces the number of blood platelets and results in kidney failure, neurological symptoms and anemia.
