Clinically-indicated replacement versus routine replacement of peripheral venous catheters.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 01 23;1:CD007798. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

National Centre of Research Excellence in Nursing, Centre for Health Practice Innovation, Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University, 170 Kessels Road, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, 4111.

Background: US Centers for Disease Control guidelines recommend replacement of peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVC) no more frequently than every 72 to 96 hours. Routine replacement is thought to reduce the risk of phlebitis and bloodstream infection. Catheter insertion is an unpleasant experience for patients and replacement may be unnecessary if the catheter remains functional and there are no signs of inflammation or infection. Read More

Thromboinflammation: Challenges of Therapeutically Targeting Coagulation and other Host Defence Mechanisms.

Blood 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Charles Perkins Centre, The University of Sydney, Camperdown, NSW, Australia.

Thrombosis with associated inflammation (thromboinflammation) occurs commonly in a broad range of human disorders. It is well recognized clinically in the context of superficial thrombophlebitis (thrombosis and inflammation of superficial veins), however it is more dangerous when it develops in the microvasculature of injured tissues and organs. Microvascular thrombosis with associated inflammation is well recognized in the context of sepsis and ischemia-reperfusion injury, however it also occurs in organ transplant rejection, major trauma, severe burns, the antiphospholipid syndrome, preeclampsia, sickle cell disease and biomaterial-induced thromboinflammation.

Treatment of Lower Extremity Superficial Thrombophlebitis.

JAMA 2018 12;320(22):2367-2368

Amsterdam Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Clinical Question: Which treatments for lower extremity superficial thrombophlebitis (ST) are associated with lower rates of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) vs placebo?

Bottom Line: A dose of 2.5 mg of fondaparinux administered subcutaneously once daily for 45 days is associated with fewer cases of symptomatic VTE without an increase in major bleeding vs placebo. Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are associated with lower rates of ST extension or recurrence vs placebo, but data regarding symptomatic VTE remain inconclusive.

Rare and life-threatening complication after an attempted lower third molar extraction: Lemierre syndrome.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 2019 Feb 29;101(2):e52-e54. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Maxillofacial Surgery Operative Unit, Department of Life, Health and Environmental Sciences, 'San Salvatore' City Hospital , L'Aquila , Italy.

Lemierre's syndrome is also known as the forgotten disease, and is a rare but life-threatening complication that can arise after surgical extractions of infected mandibular third molars. Owing to its rarity, oral and maxillofacial surgeons might not immediately recognise or can underestimate the pathological signs, and consequently do not apply the appropriate therapy to treat the syndrome. Here, we report on the occurrence and management of a case of Lemierre's syndrome, where the complications affected the right sigmoid sinus. Read More

Platelet reactivity in diabetic patients with invasive liver abscess syndrome.

Infect Drug Resist 2018 9;11:1669-1676. Epub 2018 Oct 9.

Department of Pharmacology, Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Objective: Platelets catalyze the development of hyperinflammation and microthrombosis and contribute to increases in accumulation of circulating platelet-leukocyte complex, the key event in the development of disseminated infection.

Subjects And Methods: To determine the relationships of platelet activity in diabetic patients with invasive liver abscess syndrome (IKLAS), a total of 175 diabetic patients with community-acquired (KP) bacteremia were included in this study. We compared the platelet reactivity of 40 patients with IKLAS, 40 patients with non-IKLAS, and eight healthy controls using a whole-blood flow cytometry-based assay. Read More

[Prospective comparative study of remote results of surgical treatment of patients with varicothrombophlebitis].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2018;24(3):77-84

Saratov State Medical University named after V.I. Razumovsky under the Ministry of Public Health of the Russian Federation, Saratov, Russia.

The authors examined the effect of the presence of undifferentiated connective tissue dysplasia (UCTD) on the clinical course of lower-limb varicose veins (LLVV) and acute varicothrombophlebitis (AVTP) in patients after the Troyanov-Trendelenburg operation. We carried out a prospective comparative study of the remote results during three years after the Troyanov-Trendelenburg operation in a total of 132 patients suffering from AVTP. The Study Group included 67 patients found to have more than four phenotypic traits of UCTD, thus suggesting the presence of UCTD. Read More

an unusual cause of septic thrombophlebitis in an injection drug user.

New Microbes New Infect 2018 Nov 12;26:89-91. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Infection, St Thomas' Hospital, London, UK.

The clinical spectrum of human disease caused by is poorly described, partly as a result of historical difficulties with microbial identification. With the introduction of powerful new technologies, such as matrix-assisted desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry, into routine microbiology laboratories, new insights into diseases caused by such organisms are being made. Here we report a case of septic thrombophlebitis with bacteraemia caused by this organism, together with a retrospective description of laboratory isolation of this organism over a period of 6 years in a hospital in London, UK.

Senile Lemierre syndrome complicated with descending necrotizing mediastinitis: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Aug;97(35):e11903

Department of Stomatology, the First People's Hospital of Changzhou, the Third Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University, Changzhou, Jiangsu, China.

Rationale: Senile patients with LS complicated with DNM are rarely seen in clinical practice, and extensive cervical incision and drainage plus administration of effective antibiotics are the basis for treatment. Currently, the treatment controversy mainly has focused on whether mediastinal incision and drainage is necessary for patients with type I DNM, and whether anticoagulation therapy is required for jugular venous emboli and distant metastatic emboli induced by LS.

Patient Concerns: A female, 76 years old, developed pain of tonsil on right side 5 days ago, and felt that the pain aggravated complicated with dysphagia and swelling pain of neck on both sides since then. Read More

Pylephlebitis Caused by Actinomyces Bacteremia.

Cureus 2018 Jun 26;10(6):e2887. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Internal Medicine/Gastroenterology, Henry Ford Health System, Detroit, USA.

Pylephlebitis is a thrombophlebitis of the portal vein or its branches, which usually occurs as a complication of intra-abdominal infections that are drained by the portal vein, most commonly as a result of diverticulitis or appendicitis. Diagnosis of pylephlebitis is achieved by visualizing a portal vein thrombosis in a patient with bacteremia or a recent intra-abdominal infection. Many microorganisms have been reported to cause this infection. Read More
