Addison's disease in antiphospholipid syndrome: a rare complication.

Endocrinol Diabetes Metab Case Rep 2018 Nov 22;2018. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Department, Centro Hospitalar e Universitario de Coimbra EPE, Coimbra, Portugal.

Addison's disease (AD) is the most common endocrine manifestation of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), but it remains a very rare complication of the syndrome. It is caused by adrenal venous thrombosis and consequent hemorrhagic infarction or by spontaneous (without thrombosis) adrenal hemorrhage, usually occurring after surgery or anticoagulant therapy. We present a clinical case of a 36-year-old female patient with a previous diagnosis of APS. Read More

Which Type of Temporary Hemodialysis Catheter Should Be Used for the Right Internal Jugular Vein? Prospective Observational Study of Straight vs. Precurved Catheters.

Ther Apher Dial 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Pulmonology, Sanliurfa Education and Research Hospital, Sanliurfa, Turkey.

Weak evidence is present for choosing amongst different temporary hemodialysis catheter (THC) designs with regards to the risk of venous thrombosis, therefore two THC designs for the right internal jugular vein (RIJV) were compared. Patients aged ≥18 years who needed THC insertion into the RIJV for acute hemodialysis due to either acute or chronic renal failure were included. The type of THC (precurved/straight) was dependent on the date of hospital admission. Read More

Early TIPS failure in association with left mesenterico-gonadal spontaneous portosystemic venous shunt; a case report.

Clin Imaging 2019 Jan - Feb;53:200-203. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Department of Radiology, University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, Lexington, KY, United States of America. Electronic address:

Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) periprocedural thrombosis rates have fallen significantly since the introduction of polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent grafts. We present a case of a cirrhotic patient with portal hypertension presenting with early TIPS thrombosis in association with an underlying competing spontaneous left mesenterico-gonadal venous shunt, an uncommon variant of spontaneous portal systemic shunt (SPSS). The patient presented with bleeding distal duodenal varices refractory to endovascular therapy, and although a successful TIPS procedure was performed for this indication, early thrombosis was determined by follow-up abdominopelvic computed tomographic angiography (CTA) scan.

Central venous catheter-related venous thrombosis in children with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis.

Thromb Res 2018 12 31;172:150-157. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Unit, Department of Pediatrics, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Affiliated with Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical School, Jerusalem, Israel. Electronic address:

Despite the high rate of central venous catheter (CVC)-related venous thromboembolic (VTE) complications and long-term sequelae, CVCs remain a vital component of patient care in children with complex underlying diseases. In this review, we focus on CVC-related VTE in children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) undergoing hemodialysis, a population in whom the provision of renal replacement therapy is a lifelong undertaking. Occlusion of the CVC and thrombosis underlie most instances of access malfunction and failure in children on chronic hemodialysis. Read More

Case Rep Pulmonol 2018 16;2018:8735036. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, USA.

Introduction: Hemothorax is usually related to chest or iatrogenic trauma from procedures such as central lines and thoracentesis. Spontaneous hemothorax is defined as pleural fluid hematocrit greater than 50% of serum hematocrit in absence of natural or iatrogenic trauma affecting the lung or pleural space. Coagulopathy secondary to anticoagulant use has been associated with spontaneous hemothorax. Read More

Outcomes of Kidney Transplantation by Using the Technique of Renal Artery Anastomosis First.

Cureus 2018 Aug 28;10(8):e3223. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

WA Liver & Kidney Transplant Service, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Perth, AUS.

Introduction The surgical technique for kidney transplantation has been well established: the renal vein is anastomosed first, followed by renal artery anastomosis. Alternatively, the renal artery can be anastomosed first and then the renal vein for kidney transplantation. However, there is a lack of data on the outcomes of kidney transplantation by using this alternative approach. Read More

J Med Case Rep 2018 Oct 30;12(1):321. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

National Hospital of Sri Lanka, E W Perera Mawatha, Colombo, 00700, Sri Lanka.

Background: Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne viral disease with a very high incidence in Southeast Asia. Most patients with dengue fever recover following a self-limiting febrile illness, while a small proportion may progress to develop severe disease with complications such as acute liver failure, acute kidney injury, and multiorgan failure. Secondary bacterial infections and thrombotic events are very rare. Read More

Membranous nephropathy followed by anti-glomerular basement disease: A case report and review of clinical presentation and treatment.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2018 19;6:2050313X18807621. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Department of Nephrology, Heidelberg University Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.

Membranous nephropathy is a common cause of nephrotic syndrome in adults and can be primary or secondary through autoimmune disease, medication, infection, or malignancy. Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis with crescent formation is rare in patients with membranous nephropathy. Thus, in cases with rapid decline in renal function, after excluding complications such as malignant hypertension, acute hypersensitivity interstitial nephritis, and bilateral renal vein thrombosis, the simultaneous occurrence of a superimposed glomerulonephritis should be considered.

Endovascular pharmacomechanical thrombolysis-a novel treatment for circumaortic left renal vein and inferior vena cava thrombosis in a paediatric patient with relapsing nephrotic syndrome.

BJR Case Rep 2018 8;4(2):20170082. Epub 2017 Nov 8.

Department of Paediatrics, Division of Nephrology, British Columbia Children's Hospital, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

While venous thromboembolism (VTE) in children with nephrotic syndrome (NS) remains an uncommon clinical entity, it represents one of the disease's most severe and potentially fatal complications. As such, clinicians and radiologists must maintain a high level of suspicion for VTE and low threshold for performing diagnostic imaging studies in children with NS, thereby ensuring prompt diagnosis and early management initiation. Despite the recent advances and development of image-guided endovascular procedures, there remains a marked paucity of literature describing the use of endovascular intervention for the treatment of acute VTE in NS, and a clear consensus on the gold standard for management has yet to be fully elucidated.
