A Case of Recurrent Embolic Strokes in a Young Female With a Patent Foramen Ovale and Presumed Fibroelastoma.

Cureus 2022 Jul 10;14(7):e26722. Epub 2022 Jul 10.

Department of Internal Medicine, Grand Strand Medical Center, Myrtle Beach, USA.

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) occurs in about 25% of the population. PFO closure has been shown to decrease the risk of stroke in patients with recurrent strokes as compared to those treated with medical therapy alone, with more benefit in those with larger PFO sizes. Percutaneous PFO closure, although minimally invasive, does carry surgical risks, which must also be taken into account. Read More

Protein S Deficiency and the Risk of Venous Thromboembolism in the Han Chinese Population.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2021 23;8:796755. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Institute of Hematology, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China.

Plasma levels of the anticoagulant cofactor protein S and PROS1 mutation are reported to impart increased risk of thromboembolism in European and south east Asian populations, but the relationship is not yet documented in Han Chinese in population-based study. Therefore, we undertook a case-control study of this relationship among patients with venous thromboembolism, and probed the genetic factors contributing to low protein S deficiency.

Protein C or Protein S deficiency associates with paradoxically impaired platelet-dependent thrombus and fibrin formation under flow.

Res Pract Thromb Haemost 2022 Feb 7;6(2):e12678. Epub 2022 Mar 7.

Departments of Biochemistry and Internal Medicine CARIM Maastricht University Medical Centre Maastricht The Netherlands.

Background: Low plasma levels of protein C or protein S are associated with venous thromboembolism rather than myocardial infarction. The high coagulant activity in patients with thrombophilia with a (familial) defect in protein C or S is explained by defective protein C activation, involving thrombomodulin and protein S. This causes increased plasmatic thrombin generation. Read More

J Thromb Thrombolysis 2022 Jul 15;54(1):156-161. Epub 2022 Jan 15.

Department of Hematology, Institute of Hematology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, No 37 Guoxue Alley, District Wuhou, Chengdu, 610041, Sichuan, China.

However, monoclonal immunoglobulin-mediated Protein S deficiency is rarely reported. Here we described a 49-year-old woman with a history of recurrent painful swelling in both lower extremities due to venous thrombosis for 7 years, accompanied by recurrent gross hematuria and multiple painful necrotic purpuras for 5 years, who was then diagnosed with acquired Protein S deficiency induced by the monoclonal immunoglobulin.
