May Thurner syndrome: description of a case with unusual clinical onset.

J Ultrasound 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Radiodiagnostic and Radiotherapy Unit, Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences and Advanced Technologies "GF Ingrassia", Via Santa Sofia 78, 95123, Catania, Italy.

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is a congenital vascular alteration that is part of a restricted category of very rare vascular syndromes that have in common the compression of an arterial or venous vessel. MTS, first described in 1957, is due to compression of the left common iliac vein against the lumbar spine by the adjacent common iliac artery. It can cause chronic thrombosis of the left lower limb and can give edema, pain, claudication, thrombophlebitis, and, in severe cases, pulmonary embolism. Read More

A Rare Case of Lemierre's Syndrome Caused by Streptococcus Intermedius, Presenting as an Epidural Abscess.

Cureus 2020 Apr 22;12(4):e7787. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

Infectious Disease, State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, USA.

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare but life-threatening condition characterized by an oropharyngeal infection typically secondary to Fusobacterium necrophorum resulting in septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. Streptococcus intermedius is a particularly rare cause of Lemierre's syndrome with only a few cases reported in the literature. Here we describe a rare case of Lemierre's syndrome, caused by Streptococcus intermedius, likely secondary to an odontogenic infection, found to have a cervical epidural abscess with concomitant large retropharyngeal and prevertebral abscesses on presentation, in whom the clinical course was further complicated by an extensive cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.

Impact of concomitant deep or superficial venous thrombosis of the legs on survival of patients with pulmonary embolism.

Int J Cardiol 2020 May 20. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Cardiology, Cardiology I, University Medical Center Mainz (Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz), Mainz, Germany.

Background: Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a frequent cause of death and morbidity. A few studies suggest that clot burden in pulmonary artery bed is related to PE patients' survival, but the impact of concomitant deep venous thrombosis and/or thrombophlebitis (DVT) on short-term survival of PE patients remains unclear. Thus, we aimed to investigate the impact of DVT on adverse outcomes in PE patients. Read More

ASSESSMENT OF QUALITY OF LIFE IN PATIENTS AFTER THE TREATMENT OF ACUTE ASCENDING THROMBOPHLEBITIS OF THE GREAT SAPHENOUS VEIN WITH OF HIGH-FREQUENCY ENDOVENOUS WELDING.

Georgian Med News 2020 Jan(298):13-16

Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Kyiv, Ukraine.

Acute thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins is an urgent problem as it can spread to the deep veins with the subsequent development of pulmonary embolism. The social implications of varicotrombophlebitis are the long-term disability of most patients up to complete disability, so finding the least invasive methods of correction of the discussed disease is a pressing issue of modern phlebology. The research objective is to carry out a comparative analysis of the quality of life of patients with acute ascending thrombophlebitis of the great sapheneous vein after treatment with high-frequency endovenous welding and standard phlebectomy.

Cerebral Infarction Followed by Myocardial Infarction in a Young Adult with Protein C and S Deficiency.

Cureus 2020 Jan 15;12(1):e6665. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

Internal Medicine, Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, PAK.

Protein C (PC) and protein S (PS) are natural anticoagulants that protect the body against thrombosis, and their deficiency, either inherited or acquired, renders the body to a hypercoagulable state. This leads to venous thromboembolism manifesting as thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and superficial thrombophlebitis among other causes. The involvement of arteries is rare and has been explained by only a few studies. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis of recurrent ipsilateral deep vein thrombosis.

Blood 2020 Apr;135(16):1377-1385

Department of Thrombosis and Hemostasis, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

The diagnosis of recurrent ipsilateral deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is challenging, because persistent intravascular abnormalities after previous DVT often hinder a diagnosis by compression ultrasonography. Magnetic resonance direct thrombus imaging (MRDTI), a technique without intravenous contrast and with a 10-minute acquisition time, has been shown to accurately distinguish acute recurrent DVT from chronic thrombotic remains. We have evaluated the safety of MRDTI as the sole test for excluding recurrent ipsilateral DVT. Read More

Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP, Faculdade de Medicina de Botucatu, Botucatu, SP, Brasil.

Superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) or superficial thrombophlebitis is characterized by thrombi within superficial veins, with partial involvement or occlusion of the lumen and inflammatory reaction along the course of the vein. Clinical diagnosis tends to be straightforward, but supplementary tests and examinations are needed to confirm thrombosis extension and possible thromboembolic complications. SVT can be associated with deep venous thrombosis in 6 to 40% of cases, with asymptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE) in 20 to 33%, and with symptomatic PE in 2 to 13%. Read More

Role of flavonoids in thrombotic, cardiovascular, and inflammatory diseases.

Inflammopharmacology 2019 Oct 15;27(5):863-869. Epub 2019 Jul 15.

Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The failure of mechanisms of natural anti-coagulation either due to genetic impairment or due to severe external injuries may result in a condition called thrombosis. This is believed to be the primary cause for a variety of life-threatening conditions such as: heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, thrombophlebitis, and deep venous thrombosis (DVT). The growing number of these incidents requires an alternative anti-coagulant or anti-thrombotic agent that has minimal side effects and improved efficiency. Read More

Department of Rheumatology, Saitama Medical Center, Jichi Medical University, Saitama City, Saitama, Japan.

BACKGROUND Systemic vasculitides constitute heterogenous conditions affecting many organs and systems through blood vessel inflammation. Although there are some classifications for vasculitis, several vasculitides are "unclassified" because they cannot be clearly assigned to one of the known entities. CASE REPORT We report an autopsy case of a 67-year-old Japanese man who presented with fever, ocular pain, erythema, chest pain, and headache. Read More

Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Septic Internal Jugular Thrombophlebitis: Updates in the Etiology and Treatment of Lemierre's Syndrome.

J Emerg Med 2019 Jun;56(6):709-712

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California, San Diego, California.

Background: Lemierre's syndrome is classically precipitated by oropharyngeal infections that progress to suppurative internal jugular vein thrombophlebitis via direct extension. Metastatic pneumonia from septic emboli is nearly universal and bacterial seeding frequently results in disseminated septic foci. Fusobacterium necrophorum is the most commonly reported etiologic agent, though methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an emerging pathogen and a myriad of oropharyngeal flora must be covered until blood cultures return.
