Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is also known as disseminated intravascular coagulopathy or less usually as consumptive coagulopathy, is a pathological process considered by the prevalent activation of the clotting cascade that results in the formation of blood clots in the small blood vessels throughout the body. This results to concession of tissue blood flow and can finally cause to multiple organ injury. As the coagulation process consumes clotting factors and platelets, normal clotting is disturbed and severe bleeding can cause from various sites. It does not cause by itself but only as a complicating factor from another primary condition, frequently in those with a serious illness. The combination of widespread tissue ischemia and simultaneous bleeding caused an increased risk of death in addition to that posed by the primary disease. DIC can be obvious and severe in some cases, but slighter and insidious in others. The diagnosis of DIC depends on the results of representative laboratory tests and clinical background. Treatment is mainly proceed towards the primary condition.
Signs and symptoms:
People with DIC, the primary cause frequentlyresults to symptoms and signs, and DIC is exposed on laboratory testing. The beginning of DIC can be sudden, as in endotoxic shock or amniotic fluid embolism, or it may be devious and chronic, as in cases of malignancy. Overt DIC can further cause to, or precipitate, multiorgan failure and widespread hemorrhage from various sites.
DIC can happen in the following complaints:
• Solid tumors and hematologic malignancies (particularly acute promyelocytic leukemia).
• Obstetric problems: abruptio placentae, pre-eclampsia or eclampsia, amniotic fluid embolism, retained intrauterine fetal demise, septic abortion.
• Massive tissue injury: severe trauma, burns, hyperthermia, rhabdomyolysis, extensive surgery.
• Sepsis or severe infection of any variety (essentially infections by any microorganism can cause DIC, however bacterial infections are the most common): bacterial (Gram-negative and Gram-positive sepsis), viral, fungal, or protozoan infections.
• Transfusion reactions (i.e., ABO incompatibility hemolytic reactions).
• Severe allergic or toxic reactions (i.e. snake or viper venom).
• Giant hemangiomas (Kasabach-Merritt syndrome).
• Large aortic aneurysms
Liver disease, HELLP syndrome, Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura/Hemolytic uremic syndrome, and malignant hypertension may mimic DIC but do not occur via the same pathway.
Under homeostatic situations, the body is kept in a finely changed balance of coagulation and fibrinolysis. The activation of the coagulation cascade produces thrombin that converts fibrinogen to fibrin; the stable fibrin clot being the final product of hemostasis. The fibrinolytic system then functions to break down fibrinogen and fibrin. Activation of the fibrinolytic system creates plasmin (in the presence of thrombin), which is responsible for the lysis of fibrin clots. The breakdown of fibrinogen and fibrin results in polypeptides called fibrin degradation products (FDPs) or fibrin split products (FSPs). In a state of homeostasis, the attendance of plasmin is critical, as it is the central proteolytic enzyme of coagulation and is also essential for the breakdown of clots, or fibrinolysis. Treatment:
Treatment of DIC is focused around treating the primary condition. Transfusions of platelets or fresh frozen plasma can be measured in terms of significant bleeding, or those with a planned aggressivetechnique. The aim goal of such transfusion depends on the clinical condition. Cryoprecipitate can be measured in those with a low fibrinogen level. Treatment of thrombosis with anticoagulants such as heparin is infrequently used due to the risk of bleeding. Antithrombin and antifibrinolytics are generally not used.

OMICS Group one of the renowned Open Access publishers is proud to serve the scientific community with a team of 30 k Editorial board members, close to 300 Open Access Journals and grounding close to century platforms for upcoming and ongoing research hits in mean with conferences. In addition OMICS too provides a rapid review process of 21 days with the reading number touching 2 Million. What else it requires if scientific community could find a single platform where the presented research is easily published, OMICS serves the same duo. Each and every research effort has a scientific concept behind it which needed to be up fronted to the scientific community to increase the probabilistic discovery from conceptualization of scientific ideas.OMICS Group International ventured into Scientific Alliance, has already signed agreement with more than 1000 scientific associations worldwide to make health care and scientific information open access. This brings together a platform for global networking among the community through shared resources and working together in multifarious key areas. Now OMICS Group is going to organize International conference on Thrombosis and hemostasis in Beijing, China on July 13-15, 2015.
