Atraumatic Splenic Rupture after Myocardial Infarction.

Eur J Case Rep Intern Med 2018 24;5(4):000827. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Doncaster Royal Infirmary, Doncaster, United Kingdom.

Atraumatic splenic rupture is a rare but potentially life-threatening event. It mostly happens when the spleen is already diseased; however, sometimes it can be drug induced in a previously normal spleen. Although anticoagulation has been attributed to spontaneous splenic rupture quite frequently, the role of dual antiplatelet therapy is underestimated. Read More

Dendritic cell vaccination plus low-dose doxorubicin for the treatment of spontaneous canine hemangiosarcoma.

Cancer Gene Ther 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Department of Pathology & Immunology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Angiosarcoma is a deadly neoplasm of the vascular endothelium. Metastatic disease is often present at diagnosis, and 5-year survival is only 10-35%. Although there exist no immunocompetent mouse models of angiosarcoma with which to study immune-based approaches to therapy, angiosarcoma is a major killer of companion dogs, responsible for up to 2% of all canine deaths in some susceptible breeds or an estimated 120,000 per year in the US.

A Rare Case of Triple-Negative Essential Thrombocythemia in a Young Postsplenectomy Patient: A Diagnostic Challenge.

Case Rep Hematol 2018 16;2018:9079462. Epub 2018 Dec 16.

Division of Hematology, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Houston, TX, USA.

The distinction between primary and reactive thrombocytosis by bone marrow histology is very important. Reactive thrombocytosis, the most common cause of thrombocytosis, can be expected in postsplenectomy states; however, close hematological evaluation of prolonged thrombocytosis is essential to identify patients who may have an underlying myeloproliferative neoplasm. We report a 37-year-old woman who was found to have portal, mesenteric, and splenic vein thrombosis with thrombocytosis, two months after she had a splenectomy for spontaneous splenic rupture.

Splenosis of the Liver Capsule.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Dec;43(12):e460-e462

Departments of Nuclear Medicine, and.

Splenosis, a form of ectopic splenic tissue, is generally caused by heterotopic autotransplantation of splenic tissues after traumatic splenic rupture or splenectomy. The implants are often localized intraperitoneally, mostly in the left upper quadrant and splenic region. Hepatic foci are seen only on rare occasions. Read More

Impact of portal vein resection with splenic vein reconstruction after pancreatoduodenectomy on sinistral portal hypertension: Who needs reconstruction?

Surgery 2019 Feb 27;165(2):291-297. Epub 2018 Sep 27.

Department of 1Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery, Cancer Institute Hospital, Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research, Tokyo, Japan. Electronic address:

Background: Resection of the porto-mesenterico-splenic confluence is at times necessary during pancreatoduodenectomy with portal vein resection for pancreatic cancer. Although splenic vein ligation can cause sinistral portal hypertension, the incidence of clinically relevant sinistral portal hypertension remains unknown, and the roles of the preservation of potential collateral veins and splenic vein reconstruction are controversial.

Methods: Patients with pancreatic cancer who underwent pancreatoduodenectomy with porto-mesenterico-splenic confluence resection were assessed for incidence of development of varices by computed tomography at 6 months after pancreatoduodenectomy. Read More

Clinical Characteristics and Prognostic Factors of Primary Splenic Angiosarcoma: A Retrospective Clinical Analysis from China.

Cell Physiol Biochem 2018 20;49(5):1959-1969. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Department of Gastroenterology, Third Xiangya Hospital of Central South University, Changsha, China.

Background/aims: Primary splenic angiosarcoma is an aggressive malignancy originating from endothelial cells with a particularly poor outcome despite radical therapy. Owing to its extremely low incidence, available data for splenic angiosarcoma are limited. The present study aimed to address this limitation by presenting a thorough retrospective analysis of Chinese primary splenic angiosarcoma patients over a 53-year period (1963-2016). Read More

Unexpected intraabdominal hemorrhage due to segmental arterial mediolysis following subarachnoid hemorrhage: A case of ruptured intracranial and intraabdominal aneurysms.

Surg Neurol Int 2018 29;9:175. Epub 2018 Aug 29.

Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, Chikamori Hospital, Kochi, Japan.

Background: Segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) is an uncommon vascular disease, which manifests as catastrophic intraabdominal hemorrhage caused by rupture of visceral dissecting aneurysms in most cases. The etiology of SAM is still unclear, but SAM may be a vasospastic disorder and the responsible pressor agent is norepinephrine. Recently, abdominal SAM coexisting with intracranial dissecting aneurysms has been reported, but the relationship between intraabdominal and intracranial aneurysms in SAM remains unclear, as no cases of concomitant abdominal SAM and ruptured intracranial saccular aneurysm have been reported.

3 New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, USA.

Objectives Upper extremity arterial access is often required for endovascular procedures, especially for antegrade access to the visceral aortic branches. Radial arterial access has been shown previously to have low complication rates, and patients tolerate the procedure well and are able to recover quickly. However, transradial access remains relatively uncommon amongst vascular surgeons. Read More
