[Membranous occlusion of the inferior vena cava a rare cause of Budd-Chiari syndrome].

Rev Med Liege 2018 Nov;73(11):557-561

Service d'hépatologie, CHU de Liège, Belgique.

Rarely encountered in the Western countries, membranous occlusion of the inferior vena cava results from a fibrous thickening of the intima and is commonly located at the orifices of the hepatic veins. To date, two etiopathogenic hypotheses have been formulated: the first, dealing with the embryological aspect, the second, arguing for a thrombotic origin. Nevertheless, several studies are still underway to understand the exact physiopathological mechanism of this obstruction. Read More

Inferior Vena Cava Filters in the Asymptomatic Chronically Occluded Cava: To Remove or Not Remove?

Authors:
Warren Clements

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2019 Feb 21;42(2):165-168. Epub 2018 Sep 21.

Department of Radiology, Alfred Health, Alfred Hospital, 55 Commercial Road, Melbourne, VIC, 3004, Australia.

Risks of IVC filter insertion are numerous but include IVC stenosis or thrombosis and may result in caval occlusion. Acute IVC occlusion is almost always symptomatic, and treatment can be aggressive such as catheter-directed thrombolysis or conservative such as anticoagulation. The more challenging cohort of patients is those where there has been chronic complete occlusion of the IVC without symptoms, sometimes only identified at the time of routine filter retrieval.

Unusual Techniques for Preserving Surgical and Oncologic Safety in Hepatectomy of Advanced Adrenal Malignancy with Vena Cava and Liver Invasion.

Ann Surg Oncol 2018 Oct 17;25(11):3324-3325. Epub 2018 Jul 17.

Department of Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Status in terms of major vascular structure invasion is a crucial factor for successful major hepatic resection. In particular, surgery for advanced tumors with inferior vena cava (IVC) invasion is difficult and may even be dangerous for the patient, having high risk of massive bleeding and greater chance of embolic complications such as stroke, bowel ischemia, and pulmonary venous thrombosis. For such reasons, many surgeons hesitate to carry out such surgical resection, and even if they do so, may not totally remove the tumor including the part inside the IVC, achieving R1 resection.

Effect of combined therapy with catheter-directed thrombolysis and factor Xa inhibitor for inferior vena cava thrombosis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jul;97(28):e11221

Rationale: Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis is an under-recognized entity that is associated with a mortality rate approaching twice that of lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Thrombolytic therapy not only results in greater lysis, but also results in higher complication rates than anticoagulation alone. Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT), which is effective in accomplishing local resolution whilst reducing bleeding complications, has been established as an alternative treatment for patients with extensive DVT.

Center for Cardiology - Cardiology I, University Medical Center Mainz, Langenbeckstrasse 1, 55131 Mainz, Germany.

Pulmonary embolism (PE) results from deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and can lead to chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) involving vascular dysfunction. Mechanisms are incompletely understood, in part due to lack of mouse models. We induced PE in C57BL/6 mice by intravenous injection of thrombin (166 U/kg BW), confirmed by a sudden bradycardia, bradypnea, and an increase in pulmonary artery (PA) pressure observed by high-frequency ultrasound.

Caval replacement strategy in pediatric retroperitoneal tumors encasing the vena cava: a single-center experience and review of literature.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Mar 10;54(3):557-561. Epub 2018 Jun 10.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital, IRCCS, Piazza San Onofrio 4, 00165, Rome, Italy.

Background: Complete encasement of the inferior vena cava by retroperitoneal tumors is rare. Although replacement of the vena cava has been considered for various conditions in adults, it is rarely used in children except for challenging resections and as a last chance approach - often aiming more at debulking than cure.

Materials And Methods: From January 2009 to February 2017, 4 patients (2 adrenal neuroblastomas, 1 renal cell carcinoma, 1 infantile fibrosarcoma) underwent elective en-bloc resection of tumor and of the infrahepatic portion of the inferior vena cava (IVC), with planned IVC prosthetic replacement.

An Unusual Cause of Cauda Equina Syndrome: Lumbar Epidural Venous Engorgement.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Jun 15;19:694-698. Epub 2018 Jun 15.

Department of Neuroradiology, King Fahad Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

BACKGROUND Epidural venous plexus (EVP) engorgement occurs due to many conditions, so it can be easily misdiagnosed. This becomes problematic when the diagnosis requires prompt treatment for a good outcome, especially when it results in cauda equina syndrome (CES). We report a case of extensive iliocaval thrombosis leading to epidural venous plexus and ascending lumbar vein engorgement as an outcome of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) due to probable adverse effects of oral combined contraceptive pills (OCCP).

Management of acute lower extremity deep venous thrombosis in a patient with duplicated inferior vena cava and contraindication to anticoagulation: case and review of the literature.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jun 4;2018. Epub 2018 Jun 4.

Department of Medicine, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune City, New Jersey, USA.

Duplication of the inferior vena cava (DIVC) is an uncommon embryological anatomic phenomenon.We report a 63-year-old woman with extensive right leg deep vein thrombosis who required an IVC filter due to contraindications for anticoagulation, but was found to have DIVC which required the placement of two IVC filters with good result. This report will review and summarise past reports of DIVC management to provide a guide for future clinicians, and review the embryological development, diagnosis and IVC filter placement options as they are based on the type of anatomic malformation encountered.

The loss of BAP1 protein expression predicts poor prognosis in patients with nonmetastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma with inferior vena cava tumor thrombosis.

Urol Oncol 2018 08 28;36(8):365.e9-365.e14. Epub 2018 May 28.

Department of Urology, Toranomon Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Objectives: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is characterized by a propensity for extension into the renal vein and inferior vena cava (IVC) and is associated with poor prognosis. BAP1 mutation, which occurs in about 15% of patients with clear cell RCC (ccRCC), also predicts poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to elucidate the association between BAP1 protein expression and clinicopathological outcomes in patients with nonmetastatic ccRCC with an IVC tumor thrombus (IVCTT).

Endovascular Iliocaval Reconstruction for Chronic Iliocaval Thrombosis: The Data, Where We Are, and How It is Done.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2018 Jun 8;21(2):92-104. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Medstar Washington Hospital Center, Washington, DC.

Iliocaval thrombosis, or thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and iliac veins, is associated with significant morbidity in the form of limb-threatening compromise from phlegmasia cerulean dolens, development of post-thrombotic syndrome, and death secondary to pulmonary embolism. Endovascular iliocaval reconstruction is an effective treatment for iliocaval thrombosis with high levels of technical success, favorable clinical outcomes and stent patency rates, and few complications. It is often able to relieve the debilitating symptoms experienced by affected patients and is a viable option for patients who fail conservative management. Read More

Caval Thrombus Management: The Data, Where We Are, and How It Is Done.

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2018 Jun 9;21(2):65-77. Epub 2018 Mar 9.

Department of Interventional Radiology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA.

Thromboses of the superior and inferior vena cava, either isolated or associated with distal deep venous thrombosis, are uncommon, but confer potentially serious morbidity and mortality. Incidence is increasing, especially with the prominence of intravascular devices. The range of treatment options is also expanding to include medical management, surgery, and endovascular techniques which are now frequently considered first line therapy due to lower reintervention rates and decreased periprocedural morbidity.

New Left Lobe Transplantation Procedure with Caval Reconstruction Using an Inverted Composite Graft for Chronic Budd-Chiari Syndrome in Living-Donor Liver Transplantation-A Case Report.

Transplant Proc 2018 May;50(4):1192-1195

Departments of Gastroenterology, Transplant Surgery, and Surgical Oncology, Okayama University Graduate School of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Okayama City, Japan.

When the Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) lesion extends to the inferior vena cava (IVC) or the orifices of the hepatic vein, the thickened IVC and/or hepatic vein wall must be removed and IVC reconstruction is required in living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). In various reports about IVC resection in LDLT for BCS, there are none about left lobe liver transplantation with reconstruction of the retrohepatic IVC (rhIVC). To overcome removal and reconstruction of the rhIVC in LDLT for BCS, we introduced a composite IVC graft that is applicable to both right and left lobe partial liver grafts for LDLT for BCS.
