High Signal Intensity on Diffusion-Weighted Images Reflects Acute Phase of Deep Vein Thrombus.

Thromb Haemost 2020 Aug 3. Epub 2020 Aug 3.

Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Miyazaki, Miyazaki, Japan.

The effects of antithrombotic therapy on deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be affected by thrombus age, which cannot be reliably determined by noninvasive imaging modalities. We investigated whether magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) can localize and determine the age of venous thrombus in patients with DVT, animal models, and human blood in vitro. Signal intensity (SI) on DWI and the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of thrombi were assessed in eight patients with DVT using a 1. Read More

Transhepatic atrial septal defect closure: simple way to achieve haemostasis in a patient with important co-morbidities.

Cardiol Young 2020 Jul 8:1-3. Epub 2020 Jul 8.

M3C-Necker, Hôpital Universitaire Necker-Enfants malades, Université de Paris, Paris, France.

Percutaneous closure is the gold standard treatment for atrial septal defects, but the procedure can be complex in case of femoral thrombosis. Although unusual for congenital interventionists, transhepatic atrial septal defect closure is an attractive alternative to the internal jugular vein, especially when approaching the interatrial septum. Herein, we report the case of an adult patient with significant co-morbidities who had successful transhepatic atrial septal defect closure after a failed transjugular attempt. Read More

Ultrasound-guided double central venous access for azygos vein via the ninth and tenth intercostal veins.

J Vasc Access 2020 Jun 30:1129729820937133. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Reproductive and Developmental Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Kyushu University, Higashi-ku, Fukuoka, Japan.

Some patients with intestinal failure, who are dependent on total parenteral nutrition for long periods, suffer from a lack of suitable conventional venous access points, including axillary, external jugular, internal jugular, subclavian, saphenous, and the brachio-cephalic and femoral veins, due to their occlusion. Furthermore, extensive central venous stenosis and/or thrombosis of the superior and inferior vena cava may preclude further catheterization, so uncommon routes must be used, which can be challenging. In such patients, the azygos vein via the intercostal vein is a viable candidate. Read More

A Rare Case of Lemierre's Syndrome Caused by Streptococcus Intermedius, Presenting as an Epidural Abscess.

Cureus 2020 Apr 22;12(4):e7787. Epub 2020 Apr 22.

Infectious Disease, State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, USA.

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare but life-threatening condition characterized by an oropharyngeal infection typically secondary to Fusobacterium necrophorum resulting in septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. Streptococcus intermedius is a particularly rare cause of Lemierre's syndrome with only a few cases reported in the literature. Here we describe a rare case of Lemierre's syndrome, caused by Streptococcus intermedius, likely secondary to an odontogenic infection, found to have a cervical epidural abscess with concomitant large retropharyngeal and prevertebral abscesses on presentation, in whom the clinical course was further complicated by an extensive cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.

Blood flow in the internal jugular veins during the spaceflight - Is it actually bidirectional?

Life Sci Space Res (Amst) 2020 May 19;25:103-106. Epub 2020 Mar 19.

Department of Anatomy, Institute of Medicine, University of Opole, ul. Oleska 48, 45-052 Opole, Poland.

Recently intriguing results of the research performed on astronauts of the International Space Station have been published. Unexpectedly, in some crew members a stagnant and bidirectional flow in the internal jugular vein was found, and in one of the astronauts this vein seemed to be totally thrombosed. If it actually were the case that in the settings of weightlessness there is a substantial risk of jugular vein thrombosis, any long-term human space missions would be extremely dangerous. Read More

Styloidogenic compression of the internal jugular vein, a new venous entrapment syndrome?

Vasc Med 2020 Aug 18;25(4):378-380. Epub 2020 Mar 18.

Department of Internal Medicine, CHU Lille, Lille, France.

Internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombosis is mainly related to central venous catheter, malignancy, and ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome. We report a case of IJV thrombosis possibly related to IJV compression between the styloid process and the first cervical vertebra (C1) transverse process. To support this hypothesis, we perform radiological assessment of the IJV and examine its relationship with the styloid process and C1 transverse process in 34 controls. Read More

Centrally inserted tunnelled peripherally inserted central catheter: Off-label use for venous access in oncology patients.

J Vasc Access 2020 Mar 5:1129729820909028. Epub 2020 Mar 5.

Tata Medical Center, Kolkata, India.

Purpose: Vascular access in oncology patients can often be challenging, especially after a few cycles of chemotherapy through peripheral lines which can cause veins to become attenuated. We evaluated the feasibility of centrally placed non-cuffed tunnelled peripherally inserted central catheter in the chest as an alternative to conventional peripherally inserted central catheter.

Method: Patients referred for peripherally inserted central catheter found to have inadequate peripheral venous access in their arms due to prior chemotherapy, and therefore they were offered placement of the non-cuffed tunnelled peripherally inserted central catheter in the chest. Read More

Bovine jugular vein valved xenograft for extracardiac total cavo-pulmonary connection: The risk of thrombosis and the potential liver protection effect.

J Card Surg 2020 Apr 29;35(4):845-853. Epub 2020 Feb 29.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Background: Currently, non-valved conduits are preferred for extracardiac total cavo-pulmonary connection (TCPC). However, previous work has failed to provide objective data comparing the postoperative outcome between non-valved TCPCs and bovine jugular vein valved xenograft (BJV) TCPCs. Hence, the objective of this study is to compare the postoperative outcomes in extracardiac TCPC patients who received BJV vs synthetic non-valved conduits and evaluate the effect of BJV on liver fibrosis.

Case of internal jugular vein thrombosis and fever: Lemierre's syndrome or Trousseau's syndrome?

Ci Ji Yi Xue Za Zhi 2020 Jan-Mar;32(1):91-95. Epub 2019 Jun 6.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Taipei Tzu Chi Hospital, Buddhist Tzu Chi Medical Foundation, New Taipei, Taiwan.

Internal jugular vein thrombosis is a rare critical cardiovascular emergency, which has potential catastrophic clinical outcomes by resulting in stroke and pulmonary embolism. Several etiologies have been reported; however, there are limited data on Lemierre's and Trousseau's syndromes, which are both rare conditions with advanced disease progression and poor clinical outcomes. Lemierre's syndrome may present with typical progressively infectious symptoms and signs, including sore throat, neck mass, and fever, whereas Trousseau's syndrome may present with thrombophlebitis and painful edema.

CVIR Endovasc 2019 Aug 14;2(1):28. Epub 2019 Aug 14.

Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra, Northwell at Staten Island University Hospital, Staten Island, NY, USA.

Background: Superior vena cava syndrome is a relatively rare presentation in which diminished venous return to the heart produces congestion of the neck, face and upper extremities. Typically, a mediastinal mass produces external compression on the superior vena cava and reduces venous return. However, superior vena cava syndrome can present acutely in the setting of vena cava thrombosis. Read More
