Imaging Appearance and Nonsurgical Management of Pelvic Venous Congestion Syndrome.

Radiographics 2019 Mar-Apr;39(2):596-608

From the Department of Radiology, Mayo Clinic Rochester, 200 First St SW, Rochester, MN 55905.

Pelvic venous congestion syndrome (PVCS) is a challenging and complex cause of chronic pelvic pain in female patients. PVCS due to incompetent vein valves is the combination of gonadal vein reflux and pelvic venous engorgement in patients with chronic pelvic pain without other causes. However, pelvic venous engorgement and gonadal vein reflux can be seen in patients without pelvic pain, which makes obtaining a detailed history and physical examination important for workup and diagnosis.

Authors:
Didier Rastel

J Wound Care 2019 Mar;28(Sup3b):s25-s28

Selurl Philangio, 30 Place Louis Jouvet, Grenoble, France.

Side-effects occurring in patients treated by multilayer bandaging may be neurological, dermatological or arterial. We report on two cases of venous thrombosis involving outpatients treated for venous leg ulcers (VLU). In the first case, a lack of understanding of multilayer bandages and training on their use by the nursing staff was likely the cause of a superficial vein thrombosis (SVT) in a great saphenous vein tributary.

Endoscopic ultrasound-guided injection of coils and cyanoacrylate glue for the treatment of gastric fundal varices with abnormal shunts: a series of case reports.

J Int Med Res 2019 Feb 28:300060519830207. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Gastroenterology, Panzhihua Central Hospital, Sichuan, People's Republic of China.

Gastric varices are found in approximately 20% of patients with portal hypertension. Endoscopic procedures involving the injection of cyanoacrylate (CYA) have proven to be the therapies of choice for primary treatment of gastric varices and have resulted in higher hemostasis rates and lower recurrent bleeding rates compared with band ligation and sclerotherapy. Nevertheless, serious adverse events associated with CYA injection, including glue embolization, have been reported in numerous articles and have occasionally led to fatal adverse events. Read More

Formation of the ovarian endometrioma consists of implantation, invagination of the ovarian cortex, and adhesion formation. Progression is characterized by repeated injury and repair with degenerative changes. Already with a partially deprived ovarian reserve, resulting from the disease, surgical treatment carries a potential risk of further follicular deprivation. Read More

Endovenous ablation and surgery in great saphenous vein reflux: a systematic review and network meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials protocol.

BMJ Open 2019 Jan 30;9(1):e024813. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Section for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Faculty of Medicine, Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Introduction: Endovenous ablations are the new standard procedures for treatment of great saphenous vein reflux including endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), radio frequency ablation (RFA), endovenous steam ablation (EVSA), mechanochemical ablation (MOCA), cyanoacrylate injection and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS). EVLA and RFA have demonstrated similar anatomical success for short-term outcome, but results are controversial for longer term (≥5 years). Additional evidences from randomised controlled trials have been published. Read More

Endoscopic management of weight regain following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2019 03 29;14(2):97-110. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

a Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Endoscopy , Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women's Hospital , Boston , MA , USA.

Introduction: With the cumulative increase in the number of patients undergoing bariatric surgery, postoperative weight regain has become a considerable challenge. Mechanisms for weight regain are not fully understood and the process is likely multifactorial in many cases. Endoluminal revisions that reduce gastric pouch size and diameter of the gastrojejunal anastomosis may offer an effective and less invasive management strategy for this population. Read More

Clin Endosc 2019 Jan 22;52(1):36-39. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medical Research, E-DA Hospital, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Vasoconstrictors are often used as the first line therapy for acute esophageal variceal hemorrhage. They might also be used for a few days after endoscopic therapy to prevent early rebleeding. International guidelines recommend the use of vasoconstrictor therapy when acute esophageal variceal hemorrhage is suspected and continuation of the therapy until 3 to 5 days after endoscopic treatment.
