Management of Lemierre syndrome.

Minerva Med 2021 05 14. Epub 2021 May 14.

Clinic of Angiology, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Lemierre syndrome is a rare form of septic thrombophlebitis of the head and neck veins, most typically the internal jugular vein, which affects otherwise healthy adolescents and young adults after an oropharyngitis or other local infection and is characterized by multiple septic embolization. Despite treatment, Lemierre syndrome displays a high rate of in-hospital complications that include thrombus progression and new peripheral septic embolization, and it can be fatal or cause disabling sequelae. The mainstay of treatment is antibiotic therapy; anticoagulation is often used, but its role is controversial. Read More

Profile of Patients with Isolated Distal Deep Vein Thrombosis versus Proximal Deep Vein Thrombosis or Pulmonary Embolism: RE-COVERY DVT/PE Study.

Semin Thromb Hemost 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Isolated distal deep vein thrombosis (IDDVT) is presumed to be more benign than proximal DVT (PDVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE), suggesting a need for different management approaches. This subgroup analysis of the RE-COVERY DVT/PE global, observational study investigated patient characteristics, hospitalization details, and anticoagulant therapy in patients with IDDVT in real-world settings in 34 countries enrolled from January 2016 to May 2017. Data were analyzed descriptively according to the type and location of the index venous thromboembolism (VTE): IDDVT, PDVT ± distal DVT (DDVT), and PE ± DVT. Read More

Patients Undergoing Primary Total Joint Arthroplasty with Primary Hypercoagulable States.

Orthop Surg 2021 Apr 19;13(2):442-450. Epub 2021 Jan 19.

Department of Orthopaedics, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Objective: To analyze perioperative complications, resource consumption, and inpatient mortality of patients who receive total joint arthroplasty (TJA) with a concomitant diagnosis of a primary hypercoagulable state (PHS). The following questions were posed in the present paper. First, do patients undergoing TJA with PHS have increased risk of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and periprosthetic joint infection (PJI)? Second, what other in-hospital complications are more likely among PHS patients undergoing TJA? Third, do TJA patients with PHS usually consume greater in-hospital resources? Fourth, do PHS patients suffer higher mortality rates compared to non-PHS patients? Finally, have PHS patients received proper anticoagulant management in past arthroplasties?

Methods: The National Inpatient Sample (NIS) database for the years between 2003 and 2014 was searched to identify patients undergoing primary TJA. Read More

Predictive value of the Kuijer score for bleeding and other adverse in-hospital events in patients with venous thromboembolism.

Int J Cardiol 2021 04 8;329:179-184. Epub 2020 Dec 8.

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

Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) constitute a major global burden of disease. Current international guidelines recommend treatment with anticoagulant therapy after VTE for a duration of at least 3 months. Since anticoagulation also imposes an increased risk for bleeding events, the individual risk has to be evaluated to determine adequate treatment plans. Read More

Medizinische Klinik Ospidal, Gesundheitszentrum Scuol.

A 'Trivial' Angina with Serious Consequences A 21-year old man presented with a septic shock two weeks after a pharyngitis. A thrombosis oft the internal jugular vein, septic systemic metastatic lesions and bacteriamia with Fusobacterium necrophorum led to the diagnosis of a Lemierre's syndrome - a rare complication of a pharyngitis with high morbidity and mortality, defined by a septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein with high risk of embolisation. A streptococcal-negative pharyngitis with red flags should therefore also be treated with antibiotics. Read More
