The use of high venous ligation as an adjunct to endovenous therapy in the management of great saphenous vein incompetence: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Phlebology 2019 Jan 8:268355518821805. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

1 Department of Vascular Surgery, Mater Misericordiae Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Background: In recent years, endovenous intervention has emerged as a minimally invasive alternative to open venous surgery.

In interventional procedures, the balloon inflation is used to occlude the artery and thus reduce bleeding. There is no practically accepted measure of the procedure efficiency. A finite element method model with state-of-the-art modelling techniques was built in order to predict the occlusion levels under the influence of different balloon inflation and its material stiffness.

Pulmonary Embolism: Contemporary Medical Management and Future Perspectives.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Sep;11(3):265-276

Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis, University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany.

Pulmonary embolism (PE) contributes substantially to the global disease burden. A key determinant of early adverse outcomes is the presence (and severity) of right ventricular dysfunction. Consequently, risk-adapted management strategies continue to evolve, tailoring acute treatment to the patients' clinical presentation, hemodynamic status, imaging and biochemical markers, and comorbidity.

Neck vein obstruction: Diagnosis and the role of chronic persistent Chlamydophila pneumoniae infection.

Authors:
Paul K Thibault

Phlebology 2018 Oct 25:268355518804379. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

CCSVI Diagnostic Clinic, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: The objective of this review is to describe the diagnosis of neck vein obstruction and the possible role of chronic persistent Chlamydophila pneumoniae infection in producing the syndrome of chronic cerebrospinal venous obstruction.

Method: The normal patterns of flow in the neck veins are described and guidelines for interpretation of the quantitative duplex ultrasound examination of the extracranial neck veins are developed.

Result: An infective cause of neck vein obstruction is proposed and from a literature search of the role of the obligate intracellular bacterium Chlamydophila pneumoniae in vascular and chronic diseases, a diagnostic protocol for confirming chronic persistent Chlamydophila pneumoniae infection, which includes the quantitative duplex ultrasound examination and specific blood tests are suggested.
