Glossary for Coagulation defects
Medical terms related to Coagulation defects or mentioned in this section include:
- Abdominal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the abdomen or digestive tract
- Abnormal blood test symptoms: Abnormal results from diagnostic blood tests.
- Antithrombin Deficiency: Antithrombin deficiency refers the deficiency or impaired activity of a substance that inactivates enzymes involved in blood coagulation. Antithrombin prevents the blood from clotting too readily and if its activity is impaired then the blood becomes more prone to clotting which can result in severe problems. Severity of the condition can vary amongst patients and the symptoms can vary considerably depending on the location of blood clots and size of the blood clot.
- Bleeding disorders: Any disorder leading to bleeding or bruising.
- Bleeding symptoms: Any type of bleeding symptoms.
- Blood symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood and its blood cells.
- Blood vessel symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood vessels
- Christmas disease: Haemophilia B. An x-linked recessive form of haemophilia due to deficiency of coagulation factor IX
- Circulation symptoms: Symptoms affecting the circulatory system
- Clotting disorders: Disorder with excessive clotting
- Clotting symptoms: Symptoms affecting the blood's ability to clot
- DIC: DIC s a syndrome triggered by a number of medical conditions including malignancy, infection and liver disease, and results in consumption of clotting factors in the blood.
- Decreased protein C: A protein which is necessaryto prevent theclotting cascade and is autosomal dominant with regards to inheritance
- Decreased protein S: A protein which is necessary to prevent the clotting cascade
- 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 XI deficiency, congenital: A rare inherited bleeding disorder characterized by a deficiency of a blood protein called Factor XI which is needed for the blood clotting process. The condition is generally quite mild but the severity of the condition is variable.
- Factor XII Deficiency:
- Factor XIII Deficiency: A very rare inherited or acquired blood disorder caused by a deficiency of Factor XIII which is involved in stabilizing blood clot formation. The condition manifests as bleeding problems.
- Fallot syndrome: A congenital heart disorder consisting of four heart defects - hole between the ventricles (ventricular septal defect), obstruction from right ventricles to the lungs (subpulmonary stenosis), overriding aorta and thickened right ventricle muscle.
- Hemophilia: Blood disease usually genetic causing failure to clot.
- Leukemia: Cancer of the blood cells, usually white blood cells.
- Liver conditions: Any condition that affects the liver
- Liver symptoms: Symptoms affecting the liver
- Multiple Myeloma: A rare malignant cancer that occurs in the bone marrow. More common in skull, spine, rib cage, pelvis and legs.
- Multiple myeloma: A rare malignant cancer that occurs in the bone marrow. More common in skull, spine, rib cage, pelvis and legs.
- Myelofibrosis: A rare condition where progressive scarring or fibrosis of the bone marrow impairs it's ability to make blood cells causing symptoms such as anemia and liver and spleen enlargement.
- Oral contraceptives -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Oral contraceptives during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
- Pregnancy symptoms: Symptoms related to pregnancy.
- Renal failure: A condition characterized by a failure of the kidney to excrete toxic metabolites from the body
- Respiratory symptoms: Symptoms affecting the breathing systems.
- Skin symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skin.
- Swelling symptoms: Symptoms causing swelling or enlargement.
- Systemic lupus erythematosus: chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal, though with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare.
- Thrombocytopenia: Decreased concentration of platelets in the blood.
- Vitamin K deficiency: Deficiency of vitamin K
- Von Willebrand disease: A rare inherited blood coagulation disorder characterized by a deficiency or defect in plasma protein called the von Willebrand factor which leads to bleeding problems
