Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Department of Surgery, Northwest Community Hospital, Arlington Heights IL.

Introduction: Pregnancy is a hypercoagulable state associated with a fivefold increase in risk of venous thromboembolism. Thrombolysis is the preferred level of care for patients with acute ilio-femoral deep vein thrombosis, however most studies exclude pregnant patients, highlighting the lack of data regarding the efficacy and safety of thrombolytic therapy for the mother and fetus.

Case Report: We describe successful use of thrombolytic therapy in conjunction with ultrasound to remove a large ileo-femoral deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in a first trimester patient with phlegmasia cerulea dolens. Read More

Unilateral Thalamic Infarct: A Rare Presentation of Deep Cerebral Venous Thrombosis.

Ann Indian Acad Neurol 2019 Apr-Jun;22(2):221-224

Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology, Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India.

Deep cerebral venous thrombosis (DCVT) remains a very rare entity among the spectrum of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT). Due to the bilateral draining territories, DCVT nearly invariably causes bilateral infarction with predictably dismal prognosis. However, rare instances of DCVT with unilateral infarction having favorable prognosis have been described, but pose a wide range of differentials to the clinician and require careful interpretation of clinical and radiological features for accurate diagnosis.

[Stenting of calcified iliofemoral venous segment in post-thrombotic syndrome].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2019 ;25(1):82-86

Department of Surgery, Institute of Additional Professional Education, South Ural State Medical University of the RF Ministry of Public Health, Chelyabinsk, Russia.

Stenting of the iliac veins in patients with post-thrombotic syndrome is an intervention associated with a low risk of complications, high primary and secondary patency rates, low incidence of restenosis, leading to a significant decrease in the severity of symptoms of chronic venous disease and a high rate of trophic ulcer healing, as compared with conservative therapy. Unlike subcutaneous veins, the formation of calcinates in deep veins after endured thrombosis is of considerably less frequent occurrence. Described in the article is a clinical case report concerning successful stenting of the iliofemoral venous segment in a female patient presenting with post-thrombotic syndrome, a trophic ulcer of the crus, and the presence of linear calcinosis in the lumen of the iliac veins and common femoral vein.

Cerebral venous thrombosis in adults.

Vasa 2019 Apr 17:1-10. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

1 Vivantes Klinikum im Friedrichshain, Berlin, Germany.

Thromboses of cerebral veins and/or sinuses (CVT) encompass a clinically rather heterogenous, relatively rare entity, which is nonetheless an important cause of stroke in the young. While until the mid of the last century the prognosis of CVT was thought to be poor or even fatal in the majority of cases, the advance and wider use of modern imaging technology since the early 1980s, together with the results of registries and population-based studies, revealed that CVT is more frequent and less life-threatening than previously assumed. However, because headache is frequently the only symptom, many oligosymptomatic cases might be overlooked. Read More

Ectonucleotidase tri(di)phosphohydrolase-1 (ENTPD-1) disrupts inflammasome/interleukin 1β-driven venous thrombosis.

J Clin Invest 2019 Apr 16;130. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), caused by alterations in venous homeostasis is the third most common cause of cardiovascular mortality; however, key molecular determinants in venous thrombosis have not been fully elucidated. Several lines of evidence indicate that DVT occurs at the intersection of dysregulated inflammation and coagulation. The enzyme ectonucleoside tri(di)phosphohydrolase (ENTPD1, also known as CD39) is a vascular ecto-apyrase on the surface of leukocytes and the endothelium that inhibits intravascular inflammation and thrombosis by hydrolysis of phosphodiester bonds from nucleotides released by activated cells.

Treatment of venous thromboembolism with tinzaparin in oncological patients.

Minerva Med 2019 Jun;110(3):251-258

University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy.

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with cancer. For over a decade, the gold standard of treatment and secondary prevention of cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT) has been represented by low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs), which are currently recommended as the first-line treatment for CAT. Among the LMWHs that were more extensively tested in patients with CAT, tinzaparin is a LMWH produced by the enzymatic degradation of porcine-derived unfractionated heparin. Read More
