    Complication Rates of 3% Hypertonic Saline Infusion Through Peripheral Intravenous Access.
    J Neurosci Nurs 2017 Jun;49(3):191-195
    Stephen A. Figueroa, MD, Division of Neurocritical Care, Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology & Neurotherapeutics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX.
    Introduction: Hyperosmolar therapy with hypertonic saline (HTS) is a cornerstone in the management of intracranial hypertension and hyponatremia in the neurological intensive care unit. Theoretical safety concerns remain for infiltration, thrombophlebitis, tissue ischemia, and venous thrombosis associated with continuous 3% HTS administered via peripheral intravenous (pIV) catheters. It is common practice at many institutions to allow only central venous catheter infusion of 3% HTS. Read More

    The liver has a complex vascular supply, which involves the inflow of oxygenated blood through the hepatic artery (systemic circulation) and deoxygenated blood through the portal vein (portal circulation), as well as the outflow of deoxygenated blood through the hepatic veins to the inferior vena cava. A spectrum of vascular variants can involve the liver. Some of these variants may result in areas of enhancement that can mimic more serious pathologic conditions. Read More

    [Clinical and therapeutic aspects of post-partum cerebral thrombophlebites].
    Pan Afr Med J 2016 21;25:248. Epub 2016 Dec 21.
    Service de Gynécologie Obstétrique- CHU Ibn El Jazzar, Kairouan, Tunisie.
    Cerebral thrombophlebites are rare but life-threatening conditions (1/5000 births). Pregnancy and postpartum are predisposing factors: clinical presentation vary and may be misleading, dominated by headaches, convulsions and neurological deficits but showing no specific features. Physical examination often generates informations unavailable and misleading because cerebral thrombophlebites share symptoms with other affections. Read More

    Hepatic vena cava syndrome: New concept of pathogenesis.
    Hepatol Res 2017 Feb 7. Epub 2017 Feb 7.
    Center for Vein, Lymphatic and Vascular Malformation, George Washington University, Washington, USA.
    Hepatic vena cava syndrome, also known as membranous obstruction of inferior vena cava (IVC), was considered a rare congenital disease and classified under Budd-Chiari syndrome. It is now recognized as a bacterial infection-induced disease related to poor hygiene. Localized thrombophlebitis of the IVC at the site close to hepatic vein outlets is the initial lesion which converts on resolution into stenosis or complete obstruction, the circulatory equilibrium being maintained by development of cavo-caval collateral anastomosis.

    [Superficial venous thrombosis. A state of art].
    Orv Hetil 2017 Jan;158(4):129-138
    II. Sebészeti Klinika, Semmelweis Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Budapest, Kútvölgyi út 4., 1125.
    For a long time superficial thrombophlebitis has been thought to be a rather benign condition. Recently, when duplex ultrasound technique is used for the diagnosis more and more often, the disease is proved to be more dangerous than anticipated. Thrombosis propagates to the deep veins in 6-44% and pulmonary embolism was observed on the patients in 1,5-33%. Read More

    Lemierre Syndrome: A Retrospective Study of the Role of Anticoagulation and Thrombosis Outcomes.
    Acta Haematol 2017 23;137(2):59-65. Epub 2016 Dec 23.
    Mayo Medical School, Rochester, MN, USA.
    Lemierre syndrome (LS) is a multisystemic infection beginning in the oropharynx and leading to thrombosis of the internal jugular vein (IJV) with septic emboli and potential thrombotic extension to the central nervous system. Although patient outcomes have improved with early initiation of antimicrobial therapies, there is no consensus regarding the role of anticoagulation in LS. To better define the role of anticoagulation therapy in LS and determine whether anticoagulation improves thrombosis outcomes, we conducted a retrospective chart review of pediatric and adult patients diagnosed with LS and managed at our institution from January 1998 to December 2014.

    Reasons for the persistent incidence of venous thromboembolism.
    Thromb Haemost 2017 Jan 15;117(2):390-400. Epub 2016 Dec 15.
    John A. Heit, MD, Stabile 6-Hematology Research, Mayo Clinic, 200 First Street, SW, Rochester, MN 55905, USA, Tel.: +1 507 284 4634, Fax: +1 507 266 9302, E-mail:
    Reasons for trends in venous thromboembolism (VTE) incidence are uncertain. It was our objective to determine VTE incidence trends and risk factor prevalence, and estimate population-attributable risk (PAR) trends for each risk factor. In a population-based cohort study of all residents of Olmsted County, Minnesota from 1981-2010, annual incidence rates were calculated using incident VTE cases as the numerator and age- and sex-specific Olmsted County population estimates as the denominator.

    Hepatic Infarction Caused by Portal Vein Thrombophlebitis Misdiagnosed as Infiltrative Hepatic Malignancy with Neoplastic Thrombus.
    Korean J Gastroenterol 2016 Sep;68(3):156-60
    Department of Internal Medicine, CHA Bundang Medical Center, CHA University, Seongnam, Korea.
    Portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a form of venous thrombosis that usually presents in chronic form without any sequalae in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) or liver cirrhosis. Accurate differential diagnosis of bland PVT from neoplastic PVT is an important step for planning treatment options, but the acute form can be challenging. Here we present a case of acute hepatic infarction caused by acute bland PVT combined with pylephlebitis, which was misdiagnosed as infiltrative hepatic malignancy with neoplastic PVT owing to the perplexing imaging results and elevated tumor markers.

    Medical complications following splenectomy.
    J Visc Surg 2016 Aug 8;153(4):277-86. Epub 2016 Jun 8.
    Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7, Hôpital Beaujon, Service de Médecine Interne, 100, boulevard du Général-Leclerc, 92110 Clichy, France. Electronic address:
    Splenectomy is attended by medical complications, principally infectious and thromboembolic; the frequency of complications varies with the conditions that led to splenectomy (hematologic splenectomy, trauma, presence of portal hypertension). Most infectious complications are caused by encapsulated bacteria (Meningococcus, Pneumococcus, Hemophilus). These occur mainly in children and somewhat less commonly in adults within the first two years following splenectomy. Read More

    Initial management and outcomes after superficial thrombophlebitis: The Cardiovascular Research Network Venous Thromboembolism study.
    J Hosp Med 2016 Jun 1;11(6):432-4. Epub 2016 Feb 1.
    Division of Hospital Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California.
    Although superficial thrombophlebitis (SVTE) is generally considered a benign, self-limited disease, accumulating evidence suggests that it often leads to more serious forms of venous thromboembolism. We reviewed the medical charts of 329 subjects with SVTE from the Cardiovascular Research Network Venous Thromboembolism cohort study to collect information on the acute treatment of SVTE and subsequent diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis within 1 year. All participants received care within Kaiser Permanente Northern California, a large, integrated healthcare delivery system. Read More

    Postoperative Massive Pulmonary Embolism Due to Superficial Vein Thrombosis of the Upper Limb.
    J Clin Med Res 2016 Apr 27;8(4):338-41. Epub 2016 Feb 27.
    Division of Anesthesiology, Department of Anesthesiology, Endoscopy and Cardiology, Istituto Nazionale Tumori Fondazione Pascale, Naples, Italy.
    It is well known that deep vein thrombosis of the upper extremities is linked to high morbidity/mortality, resulting in 12-20% of all documented pulmonary embolism; however, there are few data about thromboembolism originating from a vein and/or a branch of a superficial vein of the upper extremities. Pulmonary embolism secondary to upper limb superficial vein thrombosis (not combined with upper extremities deep vein thrombosis) is a very rare clinical manifestation with few cases reported in the literature. We report a rare case of thrombophlebitis in departure from a superficial branch of the cephalic vein of the right arm, complicated by cardiac arrest secondary to a massive pulmonary embolism in a patient who underwent major surgery for ovarian cancer.

    Catheter impregnation, coating or bonding for reducing central venous catheter-related infections in adults.
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2016 Mar 16;3:CD007878. Epub 2016 Mar 16.
    Department of Paediatrics, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 50603.
    Background: The central venous catheter (CVC) is essential in managing acutely ill patients in hospitals. Bloodstream infection is a major complication in patients with a CVC. Several infection control measures have been developed to reduce bloodstream infections, one of which is impregnation of CVCs with various forms of antimicrobials (either with an antiseptic or with antibiotics).

    Superficial vein thrombosis treated for 45 days with rivaroxaban versus fondaparinux: rationale and design of the SURPRISE trial.
    J Thromb Thrombolysis 2016 Aug;42(2):197-204
    Center for Vascular Medicine and Department of Medicine III, Division of Angiology, University Hospital "Carl Gustav Carus", Technical University Dresden, Fetscherstrasse 74, 01307, Dresden, Germany.
    Patients with superficial vein thrombosis (SVT) are commonly treated with low-molecular weight heparin or fondaparinux in prophylactic, intermediate or therapeutic dosages for treatment periods of 10-45 days. This practice is also reflected by the current guideline recommendations. However, given the broad range of thromboembolic complication rates in SVT (between 0 and 30 % have been reported) it seems reasonable to suspect that risk stratification is needed to differentiate patients at low risk who may not benefit from anticoagulation from those at high risk who may need higher dosages or a longer duration of anticoagulation.

    Murine model of large-vein electrolytic injury induction of thrombosis with slow resolution.
    Thromb Res 2016 Apr 28;140:149-52. Epub 2016 Jan 28.
    Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, United States.
    Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and its sequela, pulmonary embolism, occur at a rate of 1 per 1000 person/year. Experimental models for evaluation of DVT have many short-comings, such as mechanical occlusion or stenosis to cause thrombosis, rather than the clinical scenario of thrombosis causing occlusion/stenosis. The goal of this study was to develop a model of flow-based large-vein thrombosis with resistance to resolution, to model clinical DVT behavior. Read More
