Estrone (E1) and Estriol (E3) are endogenous female hormones, present in increased concentrations during female specific physiological processes (menopause and pregnancy respectively) that are associated with increased venous thrombotic risk. These hormones are also used as hormone therapies that are also associated with increased thromboembolism risk. Viscoelastic analysis revealed no significant difference to clot formation after hormone addition, however morphological analysis showed that the...

Abstract Background Clotting parameters are informative of overall haematological healthiness of an individual. Particularly, clotting parameters can be used as a measure of the degree of pathology of the coagulation system. Thromboelastography (TEG) is a well-known technique that is an important point-of-care method, as well as research method. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a novel research method, but with possible clinical application. However, there are no clear standardized guidelin...

Introduction Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a pandemic associated with disturbance in haemostasis that could contribute to the development of diabetic vascular disease and accelerated atherosclerosis. In this population, hypercoagulation is prevalent, as well as pathological changes to erythrocytes. This is mainly due to upregulated circulating inflammatory markers.

Abstract Combined oral contraceptives (COCs), colloquially referred to as "the pill," have been regarded as a medical breakthrough, as they have improved the lives of countless women, from simplifying family planning to the treatment of acne, endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and dysmenorrhea. Unfortunately, COC usage has been associated with an increased occurrence of venous thrombosis and therefore a systemic hypercoagulable state in susceptible females. Here we discuss the health ri...

Introduction Pregnancy-related deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is most common during the late phase of pregnancy and the first 6-weeks postpartum. Pregnancy-related DVT can have long-term complications, specifically post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). Fibrin network ultrastructure is altered during pregnancy and post-partum. It is therefore essential to evaluate fibrin fiber diameter during and after pregnancy as this may provide insight into pregnancy-related DVT and subsequent PTS. Materials and method...
