Clinically-indicated replacement versus routine replacement of peripheral venous catheters.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 01 23;1:CD007798. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

National Centre of Research Excellence in Nursing, Centre for Health Practice Innovation, Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University, 170 Kessels Road, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, 4111.

Background: US Centers for Disease Control guidelines recommend replacement of peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVC) no more frequently than every 72 to 96 hours. Routine replacement is thought to reduce the risk of phlebitis and bloodstream infection. Catheter insertion is an unpleasant experience for patients and replacement may be unnecessary if the catheter remains functional and there are no signs of inflammation or infection. Read More

Treatment of Lower Extremity Superficial Thrombophlebitis.

JAMA 2018 12;320(22):2367-2368

Amsterdam Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Clinical Question: Which treatments for lower extremity superficial thrombophlebitis (ST) are associated with lower rates of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) vs placebo?

Bottom Line: A dose of 2.5 mg of fondaparinux administered subcutaneously once daily for 45 days is associated with fewer cases of symptomatic VTE without an increase in major bleeding vs placebo. Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are associated with lower rates of ST extension or recurrence vs placebo, but data regarding symptomatic VTE remain inconclusive.

Rare and life-threatening complication after an attempted lower third molar extraction: Lemierre syndrome.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2019 Feb 29;101(2):e52-e54. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Maxillofacial Surgery Operative Unit, Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences, 'San Salvatore' City Hospital , L'Aquila , Italy.

Lemierre's syndrome is also known as the forgotten disease, and is a rare but life-threatening complication that can arise after surgical extractions of infected mandibular third molars. Owing to its rarity, oral and maxillofacial surgeons might not immediately recognise or can underestimate the pathological signs, and consequently do not apply the appropriate therapy to treat the syndrome. Here, we report on the occurrence and management of a case of Lemierre's syndrome, where the complications affected the right sigmoid sinus. Read More

Senile Lemierre syndrome complicated with descending necrotizing mediastinitis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Aug;97(35):e11903

Department of Stomatology, the First People's Hospital of Changzhou, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University, Changzhou, Jiangsu, China.

Rationale: Senile patients with LS complicated with DNM are rarely seen in clinical practice, and extensive cervical incision and drainage plus administration of effective antibiotics are the basis for treatment. Currently, the treatment controversy mainly has focused on whether mediastinal incision and drainage is necessary for patients with type I DNM, and whether anticoagulation therapy is required for jugular venous emboli and distant metastatic emboli induced by LS.

Patient Concerns: A female, 76 years old, developed pain of tonsil on right side 5 days ago, and felt that the pain aggravated complicated with dysphagia and swelling pain of neck on both sides since then. Read More

Department of Hematology and Oncology, Staten Island University Hospital, Staten Island, USA.

Serious thrombotic complications associated with an acute cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in immunocompromised and immunocompetent patients are becoming increasingly recognized. While typically asymptomatic and self-limiting, an acute CMV infection appears to demonstrate a rare propensity for a vascular thrombosis, such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), thrombophlebitis, and pulmonary embolism (PE). It remains unclear whether other predisposing factors play a role in its pathogenesis. Read More

Asymptomatic Histoplasma Pylephlebitis in an Orthotopic Liver Transplant Recipient: A Case Report and Literature Review.

Mycopathologia 2019 Feb 22;184(1):177-180. Epub 2018 May 22.

Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Histoplasma capsulatum is one of the most common pathogenic dimorphic fungi in Thailand. Its usual clinical syndrome is progressive disseminated histoplasmosis, whereas isolated hepatic histoplasmosis is extremely rare. Here, we report the world's first reported case of hepatic histoplasmosis with pylephlebitis in a 45-year-old Thai male who underwent orthotopic liver transplantation due to hepatitis B cirrhosis.

Mondor's Disease: A Review of the Literature.

Intern Med 2018 Sep 18;57(18):2607-2612. Epub 2018 May 18.

Department of Diagnostic and Generalist Medicine, Dokkyo Medical University Hospital, Japan.

Mondor's disease (MD) is a rare disease that manifests with a palpable cord-like induration on the body surface. In general, MD is a self-limited, benign thrombophlebitis that resolves in four to eight weeks without any specific treatment. Cases of MD can be roughly categorized into three different groups based on the site of the lesion as follows: original MD of the anterolateral thoracoabdominal wall, penile MD with dorsum and dorsolateral aspects of the penis, and axillary web syndrome with mid-upper arm after axillary surgery.

Assessment of a topical product based on polysulfated galactosaminoglycan as an adjuvant in the treatment of acute STP and stasis dermo-hypodermitis.

Minerva Med 2018 Aug 24;109(4):276-279. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Gemelli Policlinic, Rome, Italy -

Background: Superficial thrombophlebitis (STP) is a relatively frequent pathology characterized by possible extension to the deep venous circulation, with notable local inflammatory reaction which is treated by subcutaneous administration of Fondaparinux. Stasis dermo-hypodermitis is characterized by cutaneous hyperpigmentation and eczema, treatment for which consists of the use of drugs targeting endothelial cells (mesoglycan, FFPM, sulodexide). In this study we evaluated the impact of local application of a mixture of semi-synthetic polysulfated galactosaminoglycans on the regression rate of STP and dermo-hypodermitis in patients treated with best medical therapy (BMT).

Interobserver reliability of histopathological features for distinguishing between cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa and superficial thrombophlebitis.

Histopathology 2018 Sep 8;73(3):407-416. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Aims: Interobserver reliability of histopathological features in differentiation between cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa (cPAN) and superficial thrombophlebitis (ST) by assessment of inter-rater agreement of five histological features was investigated.

Methods And Results: All sections of cPAN and ST were evaluated independently by three experienced pathologists and one resident of pathology. The histopathological features studied included elastic fibre distribution in the vascular wall, a smooth muscle arrangement pattern, an internal elastic lamina pattern, fibrinoid necrosis and luminal thrombosis.

Multidetector CT of iatrogenic and self-inflicted vascular lesions and infections at the groin.

Insights Imaging 2018 Aug 19;9(4):631-642. Epub 2018 Apr 19.

Department of Radiology, "Magna Grecia" University, Viale Europa, 88100, Catanzaro, Italy.

The number and complexity of endovascular procedures performed via either arterial or venous access are steadily increasing. Albeit associated with higher morbidity compared to the radial approach, the traditional common femoral artery remains the preferred access site in a variety of cardiac, aortic, oncologic and peripheral vascular procedures. Both transarterial and venous cannulation (for electrophysiology, intravenous laser ablation and central catheterisation) at the groin may result in potentially severe vascular access site complications (VASC).
