Tuning the Thromboinflammatory Response to Venous Flow Interruption by the Ectonucleotidase CD39.

Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 2019 Apr;39(4):e118-e129

From the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology (A.C.A., D.J.P.), University of Michigan Medical Center, Ann Arbor.

Objective- Leukocyte flux contributes to thrombus formation in deep veins under pathological conditions, but mechanisms that inhibit venous thrombosis are incompletely understood. Ectonucleotide di(tri)phosphohydrolase 1 ( ENTPD1 or Cd39), an ectoenzyme that catabolizes extracellular adenine nucleotides, is embedded on the surface of endothelial cells and leukocytes. We hypothesized that under venous stasis conditions, CD39 regulates inflammation at the vein:blood interface in a murine model of deep vein thrombosis. Read More

[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.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and Endothelial Dysfunction Is Linked to NADPH Oxidase-Derived Superoxide Formation in Venous Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism in Mice.

Oxid Med Cell Longev 2018 10;2018:1860513. Epub 2018 Jun 10.

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).
