Assisted Reproductive Techniques in a Patient with History of Venous Thromboembolism: A Case Report and Review of Literature.

J Hum Reprod Sci 2018 Apr-Jun;11(2):193-197

Department of Reproductive Medicine, Cloudnine Hospitals, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

We report a patient with a history of venous thrombosis following oral contraceptive pills who was planned for fertilization (IVF)-intracytoplasmic sperm injection for male factor infertility. This article discusses the mechanisms for predisposition to thrombosis during assisted reproduction in patients at high risk. Assessment of risk before commencement of treatment, use of mild stimulation, antagonist protocol, avoiding ovarian hyperstimulation, use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist trigger and avoiding exposure to human chorionic gonadotropin, frozen embryo transfer in a natural cycle, single embryo transfer, avoiding multiple pregnancy, and use of prophylactic or therapeutic anticoagulation are the various risk-reduction strategies that must be adopted during IVF treatment to reduce the risk of thrombosis to that of natural conception.

Venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer: design and rationale of a multicentre, prospective registry (Cancer-VTE Registry).

BMJ Open 2018 05 30;8(5):e018910. Epub 2018 May 30.

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, Osaka International Cancer Institute, Osaka, Japan.

Introduction: Patients with cancer are at higher risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) than the general population as the malignancy itself and treatment modalities, including medication and surgery, contribute to the risk of developing VTE. Furthermore, patients with cancer developing VTE have a worse prognosis than those without cancer. There are no multicentre prospective data on the occurrence and treatment of VTE in patients with cancer in Japan, and data on the outcomes, complications and incidence of VTE in these patients have not been reported.

School of Medicine, Josip Juraj Strossmayer University, Osijek, Croatia.

Venous thromboembolism is a frequent complication of gynecologic cancer, and may be the first symptom of occult malignant disease. Although anticoagulation therapy remains the standard of care in patients presenting with acute venous thromboembolism, inferior vena cava filters are an important alternative when anticoagulants are contraindicated or ineffective. We report a case of a 69-year-old woman who presented with left leg swelling secondary to deep venous thrombosis before the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Read More

Venous thromboembolism in assisted reproductive technologies: comparison between unsuccessful versus successful cycles in an Italian cohort.

J Thromb Thrombolysis 2018 Feb;45(2):234-239

Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis Unit, I.R.C.C.S. "Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza", Poliambulatorio Giovanni Paolo II, Viale Padre Pio, 71013, San Giovanni Rotondo (Foggia), Italy.

Pregnancies after assisted reproductive technologies (ART) have been associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). On the contrary, the magnitude of this risk in unsuccessful ART cycles (not resulting in a clinical pregnancy) has not yet been clearly defined. In this study, we evaluated the incidence of VTE in unsuccessful cycles and compared it with that recorded in successful cycles in the same study population. Read More

[Hormonal treatments and venous thrombosis in women].

Rev Med Suisse 2017 Oct;13(580):1821-1825

Unité de médecine de la reproduction et d'endocrinologie gynécologique, HUG et Faculté de médecine, 1211 Genève 14.

Venous thromboembolism is frequently associated with hormonal factors in women. A thorough medical history taking of vascular risks and an individual evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio should precede any prescription of hormonal therapies. In contrary to progestin-only-pills, estroprogestative contraceptives increase 3-6 times the risk of venous thrombosis. Read More

Oral hormonal contraception in special circumstances.

Aust Fam Physician 2017 Oct;46(10):728-732

Background: Despite the general consensus that long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) are the most appropriate choice of contraception for most women, there are special circumstances when the contraceptive and non-contraceptive needs of the patient are met by oral methods.

Objective: By using case histories, we seek to demonstrate the medical and practical complexities in managing contraceptive needs that may result in oral contraception being the most appropriate choice. The cases also illustrate the resources available to enable evidence-based management. Read More

Division of Gynecological Oncology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Carmel Medical Center, Michal Street number 7, Haifa, Israel.

Most ovarian cancer patients are diagnosed in an advanced stage; and after the initial treatment experience disease recurrence, which eventually becomes palliative. Many questions arise in this setting including how to address patients in the palliative setting, how to discuss end-of-life issues, and how to manage symptoms. In this review, we discuss the timing and setting of end-of-life discussion in the context of end-stage ovarian cancer. Read More

Imaging of Pregnancy-related Vascular Complications.

Radiographics 2017 Jul-Aug;37(4):1270-1289

From the Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic Arizona, Phoenix, Ariz (R.S.P., C.O.M.); Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, Mo (C.J.N., C.A.R., V.M.M., S.B.); Department of Radiology, NYU Winthrop Hospital, Mineola, NY (D.S.K.); Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Stony Brook, NY (D.S.K.); and Neuroradiology Section, Department of Radiology, Phoenix Children's Hospital, Phoenix, Ariz (P.C.).

Pregnancy results in substantial hemodynamic and prothrombotic changes that form the foundation for downstream vascular complications, both during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. In addition, several important risk factors, including older patient age, diabetes, and smoking, can increase the risk for vascular-related pregnancy complications. Because radiologists often play an important role in evaluation of the pregnant patient, understanding the pathophysiology of vascular-related complications in pregnancy and their imaging appearances is essential for diagnostic accuracy.
