The D-dimer test is often used to rule out the presence of venous thromboembolism; however, the test has been considered unreliable in postoperative patients because D-dimer levels may rise after surgery. Researchers from the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Halle in Germany hypothesized that this rise might be systematic and predictable, in which case a feasible postoperative threshold of D-dimer indicating venous thromboembolism could be determined. The results of this study...

Blood Clotting With Gold Nanoparticles
2013-07-26 10:23:00

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online MIT researchers have developed an exciting new use for gold nanoparticles. Controlled by an infrared laser, the particles can be used to turn blood clotting on and off. This could be especially useful to doctors who are trying to control clotting during surgery and could promote faster, safer healing after surgery. Using blood thinners is the only way doctors can currently control the body's natural clotting mechanism. This is...
