Indications and long-term outcomes of pre-operative inferior vena caval filters in 111 patients at high risk of pulmonary embolism undergoing major abdominal surgery.

Colorectal Dis 2021 Jun 6. Epub 2021 Jun 6.

Peritoneal Malignancy Institute, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital, Basingstoke, United Kingdom.

Aims: Patients with abdominal cancer requiring major surgical intervention, are at high risk of venous thrombo-embolic events (VTE), particularly pulmonary emboli (PE). A proportion of patients with cancer can present with, or have had, major VTEs prior to definitive surgical treatment. Pre-operative percutaneous inferior venal caval filters (IVCF) may reduce the risk of PE. Read More

Living Donor Liver Transplant for Budd-Chiari Syndrome Without Caval Replacement: A Single-Center Study.

Exp Clin Transplant 2021 May 6. Epub 2021 May 6.

From the Centre for Liver and Biliary Sciences, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, New Delhi, India.

Objectives: Adequate venous outflow is one of the most important factors responsible for optimal graft function in liver transplantation. Thrombosis of the inferior vena cava in cases of Budd-Chiari syndrome poses a major challenge to a transplant surgeon in establishing proper graft outflow. In deceased donor liver transplant, this problem can be dealt with relative ease as the liver graft includes donor inferior vena cava. Read More

[Inferior vena cava agenesis presenting as deep vein thrombosis. Report of one case].

Rev Med Chil 2020 Dec;148(12):1833-1837

Hospital San Martín de Quillota, Quillota, Chile.

Abnormalities of the inferior vena cava are rare. Its embryological development occurs between the sixth and eighth week of gestation and depends on the persistence or regression of three pairs of veins: the posterior cardinal veins, the subcardinal veins and the supracardinal veins. The type of congenital alteration depends on the moment that embryogenesis is altered. Read More

[Thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and right atrium in a neonate with thrombophilia: diagnosis, treatment, result].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2021 ;27(1):169-174

Cardiosurgical Department, Research Institute for Complex Problems of Cardiovascular Diseases, Kemerovo, Russia.

Hereditary thrombophilia is rare pathology giving rise to a ninefold increase in the risk for the development of thromboembolism in infants. The problem is multifactorial and characterized by high mortality, especially in neonates. Infants who develop thrombosis, particularly those with no family history, are often subjected to testing for hereditary thrombophilia. Read More

Concomitant and in transit right heart thrombi: a case report.

Pan Afr Med J 2020 18;37:355. Epub 2020 Dec 18.

Department of Cardiology, Mohamed V Military Hospital, Mohammed V University, Rabat, Morocco.

Right heart thrombi can form in situ or lodge in the right cardiac chambers, originating from deep venous thrombosis. The latter carries a poor prognosis, taking into account the very high mortality rate. We herein report a case of an 83-year-old man who developed thrombus in the inferior vena cava that extended up to the right atrium, along with two distinct masses attached to the right ventricle wall.

Carbon dioxide: the cause of devastating stroke without hemodynamic compromise during laparoscopic nephrectomy with injury of the inferior vena cava: A case report.

Youxiu Yao Mao Xu

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Feb;100(8):e24892

Department of Anesthesiology, Peking University Third Hospital, Beijing, P.R. China.

Rationale: Carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum in laparoscopic surgery can bring about occult perioperative cerebral infarction, advancing our understanding of the causes of severe postoperative delayed recovery.

Patient Concerns: Here, we report the case of a 35-year-old woman who underwent a right renal tumor resection in our institution, during which a raised pneumoperitoneum pressure (from 15 to 20 mm Hg) was adopted by the surgeon to prevent errhysis and to help stop the bleeding. Despite an accidental minor tearing of the inferior vena cava, vital signs remained stable throughout the procedure, and no obvious abnormality was observed in either end tidal carbon dioxide values or blood gas analysis.

Management of Renal Cell Carcinoma With Extensive Caval Thrombosis Utilizing a Temporary Atrial Caval Filter Through a Combined Endovascular and Open Surgical Technique.

Vasc Endovascular Surg 2021 Jul 4;55(5):505-509. Epub 2021 Feb 4.

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, University of Insubria, Circolo Hospital, Varese, Italy.

The most common cause of neoplastic thrombotic infiltration of the inferior vena cava is renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In the present report we described a case of a patient with massive RCC and extensive neoplastic thrombosis reaching the retrohepatic tract of the inferior vena cava. After a discussion in a multidisciplinary team meeting we decided to perform a radical nephrectomy with vena cava thrombectomy along with the support of a novel removable vena cava filter in order to avoid thromboembolism during the surgical procedure.

Clin Biomech (Bristol, Avon) 2021 02 28;82:105256. Epub 2020 Dec 28.

China University of Mining and Technology, No.1, Daxue Road, Xuzhou, Jiangsu, China.

Background: This study aimed to adopt computational fluid dynamics to simulate the blood flow dynamics in inferior vena cava stenosis based on time-dependent patient-specific models of Budd-Chiari syndrome as well as a normal model. It could offer valuable references for a retrospective insight into the underlying mechanisms of Budd-Chiari syndrome pathogenesis as well as more accurate evaluation of postoperative efficacy.

Methods: Three-dimensional inferior vena cava models of Budd-Chiari syndrome patient-specific (preoperative and postoperative) and normal morphology model were reconstructed as per magnetic resonance images using Simpleware. Read More

Transfemoral thrombolysis with thrombosuction: an aid to renal biopsy in a case of acute Budd Chiari syndrome complicating nephrotic syndrome.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Dec 17;13(12). Epub 2020 Dec 17.

Department of Medicine, Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical College and General Hospital, Mumbai, India.

Renal biopsy is usually a prerequisite in the diagnosis of adult patients with nephrotic syndrome. Acute Budd Chiari syndrome is a known complication of certain aetiologies of nephrotic syndrome like membranous glomerulopathy and minimal change disease. This complication requires emergent anticoagulation, which would preclude the performance of a renal biopsy. Read More
