There is an altered hemostatic balance in vascular-based diseases. The aim of this study was to compare a group (no. = 38) of vascular patients (aortic aneurysm, carotid obstructions arteriopathies of lower limbs) and a control group (no. = 40) and assess variations in the following endothelial factors: tPA, PAI1, vWf, fibronectin and dimer D, in differentiated degrees according to the type of pathology. These were the indicative signs of endothelial mobilization resulting in the renewed continuity of the stratum with the formation of a hemostatic plug. vWf was found to be particularly significant as a marker of an ongoing atheromasic process and its extension to various vascular districts.
