Abstract

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are clonal stem cell disorders of the bone marrow. Most patients with MDS have a high risk of bleeding. Thrombocytopenia and defective platelet aggregation contribute to bleeding. We report a surgical case of a patient with lung cancer concomitant with MDS. A 72-year-old man presented to our hospital because of an abnormal shadow on chest x-ray suggesting a primary lung cancer. A peripheral blood smear examination found giant platelets without thrombocytopenia. He was diagnosed with MDS by bone marrow biopsy, and showed defective platelet aggregation despite a normal bleeding time. The patient underwent left lower lobectomy and transfusion of platelets because of chest wall bleeding. We demonstrated that ordering platelet preparations might be desirable for an MDS patient with defective platelet aggregation who will undergo surgery, even for a normal platelet count and bleeding time.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 July 2018.
All research outputs
#10,572,715
of 13,278,410 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#320
of 523 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#200,395
of 268,276 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#3
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,278,410 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 523 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.4. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,276 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
