Search for Venous Endothelial Biomarkers Heralding Venous Thromboembolism in Space: A Qualitative Systematic Review of Terrestrial Studies.

Front Physiol 2022 27;13:885183. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

European Astronaut Centre (EAC), European Space Agency, Space Medicine Team (HRE-OM), Cologne, Germany.

The recent discovery of a venous thrombosis in the internal jugular vein of an astronaut has highlighted the need to predict the risk of venous thromboembolism in otherwise healthy individuals (VTE) in space. Virchow's triad defines the three classic risk factors for VTE: blood stasis, hypercoagulability, and endothelial disruption/dysfunction. Among these risk factors, venous endothelial disruption/dysfunction remains incompletely understood, making it difficult to accurately predict risk, set up relevant prophylactic measures and initiate timely treatment of VTE, especially in an extreme environment.

A Complex Case of Lemierre's Syndrome With Facial Vein Involvement.

Cureus 2022 Mar 23;14(3):e23420. Epub 2022 Mar 23.

Department of Internal Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport, USA.

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare disease that generally occurs in young, healthy individuals, where an index of suspicion for something so serious is often low. There is no standardized definition of Lemierre's syndrome, which has led to a dilemma if Lemierre's can be diagnosed without internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombophlebitis. We highlight a complex case of Lemierre's syndrome that deviates from the classical presentation of the disease. Read More
