Iliac Vein Stenosis: Is the Data Strong Enough for Stenting in the Young Pelvic Venous Disorders (PeVD) Population?

Tech Vasc Interv Radiol 2021 Mar 15;24(1):100733. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Assistant Professor, Department of Interventional Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA. Electronic address:

Iliac vein stenosis is a clinical condition resulting from external compression of the iliocaval venous unit with the consequent remodeling of the vascular wall, hemodynamic alterations, and predisposition to venous thrombosis. As such, the most common indications for percutaneous endovascular iliac vein stenting supported by the literature, include the management of thrombotic and non-thrombotic iliac venous lesions associated with advanced chronic venous disease (CVD). However, its clinical presentation is variable, and it may also include features associated with PeVD such as chronic pelvic pain, perineal heaviness, urinary urgency, postcoital pain, and vulvar or superficial non-saphenous veins varicosities.

Thromboembolism after cardiac surgery in a patient with cancer-related thrombosis and severe thrombocytopenia: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Jun;100(22):e26152

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Hanyang University Medical Center, Hanyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Rationale: Patients with cancer have elevated risk of both venous thromboembolism and bleeding compared with patients without cancer due to cancer- and patient-specific factors. Balancing the increased and competing risks of clotting and bleeding in these patients can be difficult because management of cancer-associated thrombosis requires anticoagulation despite its known increased risks for bleeding. The adjustment of blood transfusion or cessation of anticoagulants can be a challenge in surgical diagnosis or treatment of cancer patients with such an imbalanced coagulate status. Read More

Hormone autocrination by vascularized hydrogel delivery of ovary spheroids to rescue ovarian dysfunctions.

Sci Adv 2021 Apr 28;7(18). Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Institute of Women's Life Medical Science, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul 03722, Republic of Korea.

The regeneration potential of implantable organ model hydrogels is applied to treat a loss of ovarian endocrine function in women experiencing menopause and/or cancer therapy. A rat ovariectomy model is used to harvest autologous ovary cells while subsequently producing a layer-by-layer form of follicle spheroids. Implantation of a microchannel network hydrogel with cell spheroids [vascularized hydrogel with ovarian spheroids (VHOS)] into an ischemic hindlimb of ovariectomized rats significantly aids the recovery of endocrine function with hormone release, leading to full endometrium regeneration.

Direct oral anticoagulants for unusual-site venous thromboembolism.

Res Pract Thromb Haemost 2021 Feb 28;5(2):265-277. Epub 2021 Jan 28.

Department of Medicine and Surgery University of Insubria Varese Italy.

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) are currently the preferred oral anticoagulant treatment for most of the patients with deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities and/or pulmonary embolism. DOACs have several advantages over vitamin K antagonists, such as availability of fixed dosages, fewer drug interactions, faster onset of action, shorter half-life, and lower risk of major and intracranial bleeding. Although the evidence on the use of DOACs in patients with unusual-site venous thromboembolism (VTE) is limited to a few, small randomized controlled trials, these drugs are increasingly used in clinical practice, and several observational cohort studies have been published recently.

Clinic for Hematology and Oncology, University Hospital and Medical School (UKSH), University of Luebeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, 23538 Luebeck, Germany.

The development of malignant effusions such as ascites reflects a massive progression of a malignant disease. In patients with ovarian carcinoma, a high amount of ascites (>500 mL) is an independent negative prognostic marker. The composition and constituents of ascites reflect the inflammatory environment of the underlying tumor. Read More

[Tissue factors and venous thromboembolism in cancer patients].

Zhejiang Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban 2020 Dec;49(6):772-778

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine, National Regional Medical Center for Respiratory Diseases, Hangzhou 310016, China.

Malignant tumor is one of the important acquired risk factors of venous thromboembolism (VTE). As the transmembrane receptor of coagulation factor Ⅶ and activated coagulation factor Ⅶa , tissue factor is the main initiator of exogenous coagulation. Tissue factor positive particles expressed and released by tumor cells enter the circulation and mediate thrombosis in patients with surgical treatment and distant tumor metastasis; the enhanced procoagulant activity of tissue factor after chemotherapy makes many cancer patients more likely to develop thromboembolic disease.
