Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá DC, Colombia; Fundación Hospital Pediátrico de la Misericordia, Bogotá DC, Colombia.

The insertion of a central venous catheter is a procedure frequently performed in paediatric anaesthesia. The most frequent approach for this procedure is the internal jugular vein. However, some specific factors in children, such as the short neck and the easy collapse of this vein, which is accentuated in situations such as hypovolaemia and changes in the respiratory pattern, can lead to greater difficulty.

Near-complete recanalization of jugular vein and multiple dural sinus thromboses with warfarin in a case of antiphospholipid syndrome.

Reumatologia 2018 23;56(6):406-408. Epub 2018 Dec 23.

Department of Rheumatology, Trakya University School of Medicine, Edirne, Turkey.

Antiphospholipid syndrome is a cause of arterial and venous thrombosis especially in the young adult population. Although dural sinus thrombosis is a relatively rare complication of antiphospholipid syndrome, it may be a cause of morbidity and mortality. Extension of thrombosis and involvement of deep venous structures are poor prognostic factors in patients with dural sinus thrombosis, but the rate of near-complete recanalization is not known in antiphospholipid syndrome-related dural sinus thrombosis.

Solving the Chinese Finger Trap: A Novel Method for Simultaneous Superior and Inferior Vena Cava Filter Removal.

Cureus 2018 Oct 2;10(10):e3400. Epub 2018 Oct 2.

Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

As many as 130,000 inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are placed annually, with as few as 5,000 retrieved a year for patients who no longer require protection from deep vein thrombosis. Superior vena cava (SVC) filter placement is an even less common occurrence and is usually reserved for special cases. Furthermore, the simultaneous placement of IVC and SVC filters is most rare, whereas simultaneous IVC and SVC filter removal has not been reported in the literature. Read More

Maxillofacial Surgery Operative Unit, Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences, 'San Salvatore' City Hospital , L'Aquila , Italy.

Lemierre's syndrome is also known as the forgotten disease, and is a rare but life-threatening complication that can arise after surgical extractions of infected mandibular third molars. Owing to its rarity, oral and maxillofacial surgeons might not immediately recognise or can underestimate the pathological signs, and consequently do not apply the appropriate therapy to treat the syndrome. Here, we report on the occurrence and management of a case of Lemierre's syndrome, where the complications affected the right sigmoid sinus. Read More

Emerg Radiol 2018 Oct 23;25(5):547-551. Epub 2018 Jun 23.

There are multiple reasons for imaging the soft tissues of the neck in the emergency setting, in particular when symptoms are vague or if there is worry for complications from a certain clinical diagnosis. When fluid is seen in the retropharyngeal space, it is important to pay attention to history and look at key structures in the neck. This article will discuss anatomy of the retropharyngeal space, followed by four causes of fluid within the space that the radiologist is likely to encounter in the emergency setting: tonsillitis/pharyngitis, acute calcific tendinitis of the longus colli muscles, internal jugular vein thrombosis, and post-radiation changes.

2 Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, School of Medicine, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, USA.

Introduction:: Totally implantable venous access devices are used extensively worldwide in cancer patients for administration of venotoxic agents, blood sampling, and nutrition. Their tip is usually positioned at the junction of superior vena cava and right atrium. Inferior vena cava filters are usually used for deep venous thrombosis in cases where anticoagulation is contraindicated; they can be inserted either via internal jugular or femoral access depending on patient conditions and preference.

Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol 2018 Jan-Dec;32:2058738418778121

2 Heart Center, Beijing Children's Hospital, Capital Medical University, National Center for Children's Health, Beijing, China.

Thrombotic storm (TS) is a rare disease, especially with thrombus in the heart of pediatric patient. We present a case of a 4-year-old boy, who was diagnosed with TS during his first hospitalization due to lower extremity deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and thrombosis of the inferior vena cava, cerebral, left internal jugular, portal, renal, and iliac veins. He was eventually prescribed with rivaroxaban to control thrombosis after 30 days of successive use of low-molecular-weight heparin, unfractionated heparin, and warfarin, which were demonstrating little effect on preventing thrombosis, and the patient was intolerant to argatroban.
