A prospective study on hyperhomocysteinemia as an aggravating factor in chronic venous insufficiency.

Exp Ther Med 2022 Jul 17;24(1):449. Epub 2022 May 17.

Clinic of Dermatology, County Emergency Hospital of Sibiu, 550245 Sibiu, Romania.

The role of hyperhomocysteinemia (HH) in the etiopathogenetics of systemic thrombotic events has been confirmed by numerous studies. However, it has been insufficiently studied as an etiopathogenic factor in chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). The present prospective study included 166 patients with CVI at stages C3-C6. Read More

Risk of thrombophlebitis associated with continuous peripheral infusion of vancomycin: The effect of dilution.

J Vasc Access 2022 May 24:11297298221095778. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Infective Diseases, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli-IRCCS, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Although several guidelines recommend that prolonged administration of vancomycin should be preferably carried out by a central venous access, vancomycin is often given peripherally. Whether such risk may be affected by different modalities of administration in terms of dilution and time of infusion, it is a matter of controversy.

Methods: This single-center prospective study enrolled all consecutive patients requiring prolonged intravenous infusion of vancomycin (1 g/day) using long peripheral cannula "mini-midline. Read More

J Belg Soc Radiol 2022 27;106(1):24. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Presbyterian Medical Center, KR.

Radiologists need to be familiar with that ovarian vein thrombosis can occur as a complication of urinary tract infection. Ovarian vein thrombosis is a rare disease in which a majority of cases occur during the postpartum period. There are few case reports for ovarian vein thrombosis associated with urinary tract infection in non-postpartum women. Read More

Use of intravascular hypo- and hyper-attenuation on non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography in diagnosing acute septic thrombophlebitis.

J Radiol Case Rep 2022 Mar 1;16(3):1-14. Epub 2022 Mar 1.

Department of Radiology, National Hospital Organization/Osaka National Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

Septic thrombi, such as those observed in pylephlebitis and Lemierre's syndrome, are characterized by portal vein thrombosis and venous thrombosis with bacterial infection. Although radiographic findings of septic thrombus on contrast-enhanced computed tomography have been well described, no report has described the characteristics of non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography. We describe a case series of septic thrombophlebitis exhibiting intravascular hypo- and hyper-attenuation on non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography. Read More

West Afr J Med 2022 Apr;39(4):425-428

Department of Surgery, University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu State, Nigeria.

Background: Mondor's disease (MD) is a rare cause of chest pain, characterized by thrombophlebitis of the subcutaneous veins of the anterolateral thoracoabdominal wall. It is a benign, self-limiting condition that is often underdiagnosed due to lack of knowledge of the condition. Although the exact aetiology is unclear, several predisposing factors, including excessive physical activity have been postulated. Read More

J Dermatol 2022 Apr 17. Epub 2022 Apr 17.

Department of Medical Laboratory Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan.

Behçet's disease (BD) has a heterogeneous spectrum of disease manifestations featuring the involvement of different organs and can be characterized with different symptoms depending on the clinical department in charge. We retrospectively reviewed BD patients seen at our hospital and investigated the presence of neutrophils producing neutrophil extracellular traps (NET) in those patients. Immunolabeling of myeloperoxidase and histone citrullination proteins was performed on skin biopsies from three BD patients who had skin biopsy-proven superficial vein thrombophlebitis in their erythema nodosum-like lesions.

A novel management strategy for treatment of pelvic venous disorders utilizing a clinical screening score and non-invasive imaging.

Vasa 2022 May 13;51(3):182-189. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Department of Angiology, University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland.

Treatment of pelvic venous disorders (PVD) including pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) are often delayed due to its varying clinical manifestations. Patient referral was based on a literature- and personal experience-derived clinical "PCS screening score" (higher score points indicate greater likelihood with a maximum score of 10 points). We studied consecutive women who were (i) referred for vascular assessment and treatment to the University Hospital Zurich (2017-2021), (ii) had a PCS score ≥3 points, (iii) had evidence of obstructive or non-obstructive PVD by duplex sonography or cross-sectional imaging, and (iv) underwent endovascular therapy.

Pain Outcomes Following Mechanochemical Ablation vs Cyanoacrylate Adhesive for the Treatment of Primary Truncal Saphenous Vein Incompetence: The MOCCA Randomized Clinical Trial.

JAMA Surg 2022 May;157(5):395-404

Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom.

Importance: Endovenous thermal ablations (ETAs) are recommended as first-line treatment for truncal vein reflux, have a short recovery time, and are cost-effective. However, ETAs are associated with discomfort during tumescent anesthesia infiltration. To minimize discomfort, nonthermal, nontumescent ablation techniques had emerged in the form of mechanochemical ablation (MOCA) and cyanoacrylate adhesive injection (CAE). Read More

Intractable Rare Dis Res 2022 Feb;11(1):37-39

Operative Unit of Otorhinolaryngology, "Dimiccoli" General Hospital, Barletta, Italy.

Lemierre's syndrome (LS) is a "forgotten" condition characterized by septic thrombophlebitis of the jugular vein that follows an otolaryngological infection.

Orbital cellulitis and cavernous sinus thrombosis with contralateral sinus disease in a COVID-19 positive adolescent patient.

Orbit 2021 Nov 30:1-4. Epub 2021 Nov 30.

Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, Washington State University, Spokane, Washington, USA.

Patients with COVID-19 have been reported to have elevated coagulation factors, which is a well-documented cause of venous thromboembolism events such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Other venous thrombotic events, however, such as cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) have been less commonly observed, specifically in combination with primary orbital cellulitis. Due to its unique anatomic location, the cavernous sinus is susceptible to thrombophlebitis processes including septic thrombosis and thrombosis most commonly from sinusitis. Read More

Risk Factors for Pulmonary Embolism in Patients with Paralysis and Deep Venous Thrombosis.

J Clin Med 2021 Nov 19;10(22). Epub 2021 Nov 19.

Department of Cardiology, Cardiology I, University Medical Center Mainz (Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz), 55131 Mainz, Germany.

Background: Venous thromboembolism is a frequent complication and an important cause of death in patients with paralysis. We aimed to investigate predictors of pulmonary embolism (PE) and the impact of PE on the survival of patients with paralysis in comparison to those with deep venous thrombosis or thrombophlebitis (DVT).

Methods: Patients were selected by screening the German nationwide inpatient sample (2005-2017) for paralysis, and were stratified for venous thromboembolism (VTE) and the VTE-sub-entity PE (ICD-code I26). Read More
