600 ã— 103/âµl in the absence of an alternative cause. The following revised diagnostic criteria for essential thrombocythemia were proposed in 2005. [7] the diagnosis requires the presence of both a criteria together with b3 to b6, or of criterion a1 together with b1 to b6. buying viagra in usa A1. Platelet count > 600 ã— 103/âµl for at least 2 months a2. fast shipping viagra Acquired v617f jak2 mutation present b1. No cause for a reactive thrombocytosis normal inflammatory indices b2. No evidence of iron deficiency stainable iron in the bone marrow or normal red cell mean corpuscular volume b3. No evidence of polycythemia vera hematocrit < midpoint of normal range or normal red cell mass in presence of normal iron stores b4. No evidence of chronic myeloid leukemia but the philadelphia chromosome may be present in up to 10% of cases. Patients with the philadelphia chromosome have a potential for the development of acute leukemia, especially acute lymphocytic leukemia. B5. viagra pill splitter No evidence of myelofibrosis no collagen fibrosis and ≤ grade 2 reticulin fibrosis (using 0–4 scale) b6. No evidence of a myelodysplastic syndrome no significant dysplasia no cytogenetic abnormalities suggestive of myelodysplasia [edit] treatment not all patients will require treatment at presentation. In those who are at increased risk of thrombosis or bleeding (older age, prior history of bleeding or thrombosis, or very high platelet count), reduction of the platelet count to the normal range can be achieved using hydroxyurea (also known as hydroxycarbamide), interferon-î± or anagrelide. Low-dose aspirin is widely used to reduce the risk of thrombosis, but there may be an increased risk of bleeding if aspirin is initiated while the platelet count is very high. The pt1 study [8] compared hydroxyurea in combination with aspirin to anagrelide in combination with aspirin as initial therapy for essential thrombocytosis. Hydroxyurea was superior, with lower risk of arterial thrombosis, lower risk of severe bleeding and lower risk of transformation to myelofibrosis (although the rate of venous thrombosis was higher with hydroxycarbamide than with anagrelide). In rare cases where patients have life-threatening complications, the platelet count can be reduced rapidly using platelet apheresis (a procedure that removes platelets from the blood directly). [edit] prognosis essential thrombocytosis is sometimes described as a slowly progressive disorder with long asymptomatic periods punctuated by thrombotic or hemorrhagic events. However, well-documented medical regimes can reduce and control the number of platelets, which reduces the risk of these thrombotic or haemorrhagic events. The lifespan of a well controlled et person is well within the expected range for a person of similar age but without et. [edit] special care related to pregnancy hydroxyurea and anagrelide are contraindicated during pregnancy and nursing. There is current debate as to the safety of interferon during pregnancy and nursing. Essential thrombocytosis can be linked with increased risk of spontaeous abortion or miscarriage in the first trimester of pregnancy. Throughout pregnancy, close monitoring of the mother for thrombosis and placenta is recommended to ensure blood clots are caught. Post partum, often daily injections of low dose low molecular weight heparin (e. G. Enoxaparin) are prescribed for several weeks as this is a period where the mother is at higher risk of developing a blood clot.
