109 Possible Causes for D-Dimer Abnormal, Syncope

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Results The d -dimer assay was abnormal in 223 of 608 patients (36.7%).[doi.org] We investigated the incidence of syncope, examined the clinical factors associated with syncope, and assessed the association between syncope and the short-term outcomes of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As the authors pointed out, their study was not a true outcome study, since CUS was performed in all patients with abnormal D-dimer levels, and patients with abnormal CUS[doi.org]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    An abnormal D-dimer level at the end of treatment might signal the need for continued treatment among patients with a first unprovoked pulmonary embolus. [76] For those with[en.wikipedia.org] A73-year-old man was admitted to the intensive care unit because of sudden onset of dyspnea followed by syncope.[circ.ahajournals.org] This often result in syncope in these patients.[drsvenkatesan.com]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    Patients with abnormal D-dimer plasma levels should resume anticoagulation, because of relatively high risk of recurrent events. 110 Persistent thrombotic deposits detected[revespcardiol.org] A 51-year-old woman presented with a one-year history of progressive dyspnea, WHO functional class III-IV and exercise-related syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We describe the case of a 43-years old with a history of progressive shortness of breath, hemoptysis, chest discomfort and syncope.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    Of the103 patients with abnormal D-dimer randomized to resume anticoagulation, only 3 (2.9%) had a recurrent VTE. 231 Although the study was randomized, it was unblinded,[stroke.ahajournals.org] Adams-Stokes Disease Adams-Stokes disease, also called Stokes-Adams disease, is a condition that leads to fainting ( syncope ) and sometimes convulsions.[heart.org] D-dimer A 2004 study suggested that the D-dimer blood test, already in use for the diagnosis of other forms of thrombosis, was abnormal (above 500 μg/l) in 34 out of 35 patients[womenfitness.net]

  • Deep Vein Thrombosis

    Results The d -dimer assay was abnormal in 223 of 608 patients (36.7%).[dx.doi.org] Chest pain, shortness of breath, rapid heart rate, passing out (syncope), dizziness, pain with a deep breath, and sudden death are signs and symptoms of a pulmonary embolus[veinatlanta.com] IVT was defined as a thrombus accidentally found in a SCT scan carried out for malignant disease evaluation in patients with no symptoms indicative of VT (new chest pain, syncope[dx.doi.org]

  • Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

    The patient was diagnosed with DIC based on the concomitant presence of thrombosis and bleeding in combination with abnormal serum D -dimer and fibrinogen levels and prolonged[innovationsincrm.com] To the authors' knowledge, avascular necrosis of the midface secondary to disseminated intravascular coagulation has yet to be described following a hypoxic syncopal episode[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] fibrin-related maker (D-dimer/fibrin degradation products), and decreased fibrinogen level.[bestpractice.bmj.com]
