[Surgical treatment of patients with superior vena cava syndrome associated with permanent vascular access].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2018 ;24(4):96-100

Republican Clinical Hospital, Kazan, Russia.

Presented herein are two clinical case reports concerning surgical treatment for superior vena cava syndrome in patients suffering from end-stage renal disease and undergoing programmed haemodialysis. Initially attempted roentgen-endovascular recanalization turned out to be unsuccessful. The patients were then subjected to ipsilateral extrathoracic bypass grafting, which made it possible to preserve the vascular access for programmed haemodialysis and to relieve venous hypertension of the limb and the brain, as well as to improve quality of life.

Vascular Behçet's syndrome: an update.

Intern Emerg Med 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine, University of Firenze, Firenze, Italy.

Behçet's syndrome (BS) is a complex vasculitis, characterised by peculiar histological, pathogenetic and clinical features. Superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) are the most frequent vascular involvements, affecting altogether 15-40% of BS patients. Atypical thrombosis is also an important clinical feature of BS, involving the vascular districts of the inferior and superior vena cava, suprahepatic veins with Budd-Chiari syndrome, portal vein, cerebral sinuses and right ventricle.

A Route Less Traveled: Anomalous Venous Drainage of the Right Heart.

Cureus 2018 Sep 20;10(9):e3339. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Interventional Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, USA.

Congenital anomalies of the coronary sinus and veins have been well documented, but only one instance of an anomalous small cardiac vein draining into the superior vena cava (SVC) has been reported. The majority of patients with anomalies of the coronary venous system are asymptomatic, but these variants are important to document as they may have clinically significant implications in the management and possible interventions patients may receive. This report describes an anomalous connection from the coronary venous system to the superior vena cava discovered incidentally in a patient with SVC syndrome and end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

First reported adult patient with TARP syndrome: A case report.

Am J Med Genet A 2018 Nov 21. Epub 2018 Nov 21.

Research and Knowledge Center in Sensory Genetics, Department of Clinical Genetics, Aalborg University Hospital, Aalborg, Denmark.

TARP syndrome (talipes equinovarus, atrial septal defect, Robin sequence, and persistence of the left superior vena cava) is a rare X-linked syndrome often resulting in pre- or post-natal lethality in affected males. In 2010, RBM10 was identified as the disease-causing gene, and we describe the first adult patient with TARP syndrome at age 28 years, hereby expanding the phenotypic spectrum. Our patient had Robin sequence, atrial septal defect, intellectual disability, scoliosis, and other findings previously associated with TARP syndrome. Read More

Division of Neonatal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.

TARP syndrome (talipes equinovarus, atrial septal defect, Robin sequence, and persistent left superior vena cava) is a rare X-linked condition. As more patients are identified through genetic testing, it is increasingly clear that the original TARP acronym does not fully describe the complete phenotypic spectrum of this syndrome. The presented patient had genetically confirmed TARP syndrome and demonstrated new findings of hydronephrosis and hemodynamically significant hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Read More

EJVES Short Rep 2018 29;41:10-12. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Saint Ekaterina University Hospital, Clinic of Vascular Surgery, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Introduction: Nutcracker syndrome (NCS) is caused by compression of the left renal vein (LRV) between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) where it passes in the fork formed at the bifurcation of these arteries. NCS leads to LRV hypertension, resulting in left flank and abdominal pain, with or without haematuria and pelvic ureteral varices.

Report: The patient was a young female with diagnostic criteria of NCS, with severe clinical manifestations. Read More

Endovascular Stenting in 2 Patients with Benign Superior Vena Cava Syndrome.

Tex Heart Inst J 2018 08 1;45(4):264-269. Epub 2018 Aug 1.

Superior vena cava syndrome has typically been associated with malignant conditions; however, the number of benign cases has started to grow as the use of upper-extremity venous lines and implantable cardiac devices increases. Whereas endovascular techniques are standardly used to treat patients with malignancies, the optimal care of patients with benign causes is less clear because they typically have longer life expectancies. We describe 2 cases of benign superior vena cava syndrome successfully managed with endovascular stenting, and we review the relevant literature. Read More

Left superior vena cava draining into the left atrium in the absence of coronary sinus is an anomaly that can appear in heterotaxy syndrome and unroofed coronary sinus syndrome. Regardless of the origin of these syndromes, biventricular repair can be done through rerouting by intracardiac procedures or through disconnection-reconnection of the left superior vena cava to the right atrium or right superior vena cava by extracardiac procedures. Different techniques can be used for this purpose, each of which has its own advantages and limitations. Read More

Intracranial Venous Hypertension Induced by Superior Vena Cava Syndrome Mimicking Cavernous Dural Arteriovenous Fistula.

World Neurosurg 2018 Oct 23;118:265-268. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Department of Neurosurgery, School of Medicine, Chungnam National University Hospital, Daejeon, Korea.

Background: Known facts are that a long period of central catheterization or hemodialysis causes central venous occlusion or stenosis and its further development brings about superior vena cava syndrome. Major symptoms of superior vena cava syndrome include venous congestion caused by the occlusion or stenosis of the central vein in the sites of the head, face, neck, and upper extremity. Clinical manifestations of superior vena cava syndrome are less likely to cause intracranial hypertension, and intracranial venous hypertension does not appear to be a clinical symptom of cavernous sinus-dural arteriovenous fistula.

Anticoagulation in Behçet related intrathoracic vasculitis.

Respir Med Case Rep 2018 22;25:52-54. Epub 2018 Jun 22.

Division of Rheumatology, Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, AZ, United States.

Behçet disease is a rare multisystem condition associated with HLA-B51 positivity that commonly afflicts individuals of Turkish or Middle Eastern descent, less than 10% of whom have pulmonary involvement. Behçet-related pulmonary vasculitis is an uncommon and heterogeneous group of conditions, often with associated pulmonary artery thrombus formation. These microthrombi can result in a misdiagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism. Read More

Evaluation of Unroofed Coronary Sinus Syndrome Using Cardiovascular CT Angiography: An Observational Study.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 2018 Aug 27;211(2):314-320. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

1 Department of Radiology, Guangdong General Hospital, Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangzhou, Guangdong, People's Republic of China.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of unroofed coronary sinus (CS) syndrome at a tertiary hospital and analyze the clinical information, cardiovascular CT angiography (CCTA) imaging findings, associated anomalies, and surgical treatment of the identified cases.

Materials And Methods: We retrospectively searched the database of a tertiary hospital for cases of unroofed CS syndrome among patients who underwent CCTA for known or suspected congenital heart disease. After the prevalence of unroofed CS syndrome was determined, CCTA findings, associated cardiovascular abnormalities, presence or absence of airway compression, clinical information, and surgical outcome were recorded.

Superior vena cava stenosis in haemodialysis patients with a tunnelled cuffed catheter: prevalence and risk factors.

Nephrol Dial Transplant 2018 Dec;33(12):2227-2233

Department of Nephrology, Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc, Université catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: Although superior vena cava (SVC) stenosis may be a life-threatening complication of haemodialysis (HD) catheters, its prevalence and risk factors in HD patients are unknown. Our aim was to assess the prevalence and risk factors for SVC stenosis in HD patients with a tunnelled cuffed catheter (TCC) and to describe its clinical presentation.

Methods: In this single-centre, retrospective cohort study, all in-centre chronic HD patients carrying a TCC (1 January 2008-31 December 2012) were included (n = 117 patients, 214 TCC, 80 911 catheter-days). Read More
