Near-complete recanalization of jugular vein and multiple dural sinus thromboses with warfarin in a case of antiphospholipid syndrome.

Reumatologia 2018 23;56(6):406-408. Epub 2018 Dec 23.

Department of Rheumatology, Trakya University School of Medicine, Edirne, Turkey.

Antiphospholipid syndrome is a cause of arterial and venous thrombosis especially in the young adult population. Although dural sinus thrombosis is a relatively rare complication of antiphospholipid syndrome, it may be a cause of morbidity and mortality. Extension of thrombosis and involvement of deep venous structures are poor prognostic factors in patients with dural sinus thrombosis, but the rate of near-complete recanalization is not known in antiphospholipid syndrome-related dural sinus thrombosis.

The role of vascular echography in the management of complications associated with central venous access for hemodialysis in cancer patients: two case reports and literature review.

J Vasc Bras 2018 Jul-Sep;17(3):257-261

Hospital Aristides Maltez, Liga Bahiana Contra o Câncer, Unidade de Terapia Intensiva, Salvador, BA, Brasil.

Central venous catheter implantation for hemodialysis is commonly performed in large centers and its complications are sometimes associated with insufficient training of those who perform it, but may also be related to the patient's clinical condition. The present study reports two cases of complications related to use of a short-stay catheter for hemodialysis. In the first case, the cannula was inadvertently inserted into the left subclavian artery, causing arterial thrombosis, which was conservatively managed and good collateral perfusion was documented with vascular echography.

Venous thromboembolism prophylaxis on flights.

J Vasc Bras 2018 Jul-Sep;17(3):215-219

Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ), Hospital Universitário Pedro Ernesto, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brasil.

Civil aviation has seen a steady increase in the number of scheduled flights over the last ten years and, as a result, more passengers are traveling by air. This has been associated with an increase in flight-related diseases, especially on long-haul flights. One of the most feared complications during flights is venous thromboembolism (VTE), but its true incidence is difficult to measure because of a lack of consensus on elements such as the definition of how long after landing a VTE can be considered to be related to a flight and even how long a flight must last to be considered of long duration.

Neutrophil Extracellular Traps in Arterial and Venous Thrombosis.

Semin Thromb Hemost 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Laboratory for Thrombosis Research, KU Leuven Campus Kulak Kortrijk, Kortrijk, Belgium.

Thrombotic complications are still a major health risk worldwide. Our view on the pathophysiology of thrombosis has significantly changed since the discovery of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) and their prothrombotic characteristics. Generated by neutrophils that release their decondensed chromatin as a network of extracellular fibers, NETs promote thrombus formation by serving as a scaffold that activates platelets and coagulation.

Thromboelastography and Rotational Thromboelastometry for the Surgical Intensivist: A Narrative Review.

J Trauma Acute Care Surg 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Surgery, Denver Health Medical Center, University of Colorado.

Background: Viscoelastic tests (VETs), specifically thromboelastography (TEG) and rotational thromboelastometry (ROTEM), are gaining popularity in the management of critically ill surgical patients with hemorrhage or thrombosis due to their comprehensive characterization of the coagulation process and point-of-care availability in comparison to conventional coagulation tests (CCTs). We review current evidence for VET use in patients in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU).

Methods: We searched PUBMED, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library through May 30, 2018 for articles that evaluated the use of VETs in patient populations and clinical scenarios germane to the surgical intensivist. Read More

Usefulness of Direct Computed Tomography Venography in Predicting Inflow for Venous Reconstruction in Chronic Post-thrombotic Syndrome.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Interventional Radiology, Galway University Hospital, Galway, Ireland.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to assess the applicability of direct computed tomography venography (DCTV) in assessing dominant inflow vein in the femoral confluence in extensive chronic iliofemoral venous obstruction, using venography as the gold standard.

Methods: All DCTVs performed in symptomatic patients with previous iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis subsequently submitted to venography in the period from January 2014 to August 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Two groups were defined depending on whether the femoral vein (FV) or the deep femoral vein (DFV) was the dominant inflow on venography in order to identify predictors of DFV as dominant inflow in DCTV.

No Difference Between Low- and Regular-dose Aspirin for Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis After THA.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

M. Faour, N. S. Piuzzi, D. P. Brigati, A. K. Klika, M. M. Mont, W. K. Barsoum, C. Higuera-Rueda, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA N. S. Piuzzi, Instituto Universitario del Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Background: Aspirin is established as an effective prophylaxis for venous thromboembolism (VTE) after THA; however, there is no consensus as to whether low- or regular-dose aspirin is more effective at preventing VTE.

Questions/purposes: (1) Is there a difference in the incidence of symptomatic VTE within 90 days of elective THA using low-dose aspirin compared with regular-dose aspirin? (2) Is there a difference in the risk of significant bleeding (gastrointestinal and wound bleeding) and mortality between low- and standard-dose aspirin within 90 days after surgery?

Methods: We retrospectively evaluated 7488 patients in our database who underwent THA between September 2012 and December 2016. A total of 3936 (53%) patients received aspirin alone for VTE prophylaxis after THA. Read More

Is Obesity Associated With Increased Risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis or Pulmonary Embolism After Hip and Knee Arthroplasty? A Large Database Study.

Clin Orthop Relat Res 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

M. Sloan, G.-C. Lee Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA N. Sheth Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Background: Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolus (PE) remain an important cause of morbidity and mortality after THA and TKA. Prior recommendations have advocated for more aggressive prophylaxis for patients with obesity, whereas the evidence supporting these recommendations is conflicting and often based on underpowered studies.

Questions/purposes: (1) What is the association between obesity and DVT and PE after primary and revision THA and TKA? (2) Is there a body mass index (BMI) threshold beyond which DVT and PE risk is elevated?

Methods: We reviewed the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) database from 2008 to 2016 to evaluate the reported 30-day rates of DVT, PE, and combined venous thromboembolism (VTE) after primary THA, primary TKA, revision THA, and revision TKA according to BMI as a continuous variable and a categorical variable as defined by the World Health Organization cutoffs for underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obesity.
