Background: The postthrombotic syndrome is a common, often morbid sequela of venous thrombosis (VT) that arises from thrombus persistence and inflammatory scarring of juxtaposed vein walls and valves. Noninvasive F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging can measure neutrophil inflammation in VT. Here, we hypothesized (1) early fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) VT inflammation can predict subsequent vein wall scarring (VWS) and (2) statin therapy can reduce FDG-PET VT inflammation and subsequent VWS.

Patients with neurologic disease are at high risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). The converse risk of neurological complications in concert or following peripheral VTE is rarely considered. The major neurologic complication following pulmonary embolism or peripheral VTE is intracranial hemorrhage that occurs following anticoagulation therapy for VTE. Read More

This review aims to describe the epidemiology, pathophysiology, risk factors, presentation, complications, evaluation/diagnosis, and treatment of upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT). Upper extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT) accounts for 6% of cases of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It can lead to swelling and discomfort in that extremity and can be complicated by pulmonary embolism, post-thrombotic syndrome, and recurrence of DVT. Read More
