Division of Radiology, Detroit Receiving Hospital/University Health Network 3L8, 4201 St Antoine Blvd, Detroit, MI 48201, USA.

On December 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration issued the first emergency use authorization for a vaccine for the prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). We report development of superficial thrombophlebitis in the ipsilateral breast of a 43-year-old female 7 days after receiving the first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Given that this is the first case of superficial thrombophlebitis in the breast shortly after mRNA vaccination for COVID-19 reported to our knowledge, we suggest that this may be a rare vaccine-related event.

CHU de Poitiers, 2 rue de la Milétrie, Service d'Orthopédie-Traumatologie et Chirurgie de la Colonne, 86021 Poitiers, France.

Tibial plateau fracture is a frequent entity for which surgical management is difficult both surgically and postoperatively, with multiple complications and often delayed recovery. The challenge lies in the anatomical reduction of the joint, the limitation of complications and the rapid functional recovery. Tuberoplasty appears to be an innovative technique that meets current expectations. Read More

Risk of thrombophlebitis associated with continuous peripheral infusion of vancomycin: The effect of dilution.

J Vasc Access 2022 May 24:11297298221095778. Epub 2022 May 24.

Department of Infective Diseases, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli-IRCCS, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Rome, Italy.

Introduction: Although several guidelines recommend that prolonged administration of vancomycin should be preferably carried out by a central venous access, vancomycin is often given peripherally. Whether such risk may be affected by different modalities of administration in terms of dilution and time of infusion, it is a matter of controversy.

Methods: This single-center prospective study enrolled all consecutive patients requiring prolonged intravenous infusion of vancomycin (1 g/day) using long peripheral cannula "mini-midline. Read More

Septic Thrombophlebitis with Persistent Bacteremia Treated by Thrombolysis.

Turk J Anaesthesiol Reanim 2022 Apr;50(2):145-147

Claude Bernard Lyon University Faculty of Medicine, Lyon, France; Department of Anaesthesiology and Reanimation, Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud, Hospice Civil de Lyon, Lyon, France.

Septic thrombophlebitis requires both adapted antimicrobial therapy and control of the source of the infection. The source of the infection is generally controlled through adequate management of anticoagulation. In this study, we present the case of a 50 years old woman, with septic thrombophlebitis of a peripherally inserted central catheters line and with persistent bacteremia and thrombus, where in situ thrombolysis has successfully removed the thrombus.

Investigative study of hemodilution ratio: 4Vs for vein diameter, valve, velocity, and volumetric blood flow as factors for optimal forearm vein selection for intravenous infusion.

J Vasc Access 2022 May 7:11297298221095287. Epub 2022 May 7.

Vascular Access Consulting, LLC, East Henderson, KY, USA.

Background: Multimodal research and guidelines recognize veins in the forearm used for peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) insertion can optimize dwell time. Yet, many PIVCs are still placed in areas of flexion or suboptimal locations such as the back of the hand causing premature failure of >50%. This study identified characteristics of the forearm cephalic vein that make the anatomical location highly successful for PIVC insertion. Read More

Use of intravascular hypo- and hyper-attenuation on non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography in diagnosing acute septic thrombophlebitis.

J Radiol Case Rep 2022 Mar 1;16(3):1-14. Epub 2022 Mar 1.

Department of Radiology, National Hospital Organization/Osaka National Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

Septic thrombi, such as those observed in pylephlebitis and Lemierre's syndrome, are characterized by portal vein thrombosis and venous thrombosis with bacterial infection. Although radiographic findings of septic thrombus on contrast-enhanced computed tomography have been well described, no report has described the characteristics of non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography. We describe a case series of septic thrombophlebitis exhibiting intravascular hypo- and hyper-attenuation on non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography. Read More

Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.

Septic thrombophlebitis represents a rare but serious collection of diseases, which carry a high risk of morbidity and mortality requiring prompt and aggressive treatment.

A Complex Case of Lemierre's Syndrome With Facial Vein Involvement.

Cureus 2022 Mar 23;14(3):e23420. Epub 2022 Mar 23.

Department of Internal Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Shreveport, USA.

Lemierre's syndrome is a rare disease that generally occurs in young, healthy individuals, where an index of suspicion for something so serious is often low. There is no standardized definition of Lemierre's syndrome, which has led to a dilemma if Lemierre's can be diagnosed without internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombophlebitis. We highlight a complex case of Lemierre's syndrome that deviates from the classical presentation of the disease. Read More

Presence of neutrophil extracellular traps in superficial venous thrombosis of Behçet's disease.

J Dermatol 2022 Apr 17. Epub 2022 Apr 17.

Department of Medical Laboratory Science, Faculty of Health Sciences, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan.

Behçet's disease (BD) has a heterogeneous spectrum of disease manifestations featuring the involvement of different organs and can be characterized with different symptoms depending on the clinical department in charge. We retrospectively reviewed BD patients seen at our hospital and investigated the presence of neutrophils producing neutrophil extracellular traps (NET) in those patients. Immunolabeling of myeloperoxidase and histone citrullination proteins was performed on skin biopsies from three BD patients who had skin biopsy-proven superficial vein thrombophlebitis in their erythema nodosum-like lesions.

A novel management strategy for treatment of pelvic venous disorders utilizing a clinical screening score and non-invasive imaging.

Vasa 2022 May 13;51(3):182-189. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Department of Angiology, University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland.

Treatment of pelvic venous disorders (PVD) including pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) are often delayed due to its varying clinical manifestations. Patient referral was based on a literature- and personal experience-derived clinical "PCS screening score" (higher score points indicate greater likelihood with a maximum score of 10 points). We studied consecutive women who were (i) referred for vascular assessment and treatment to the University Hospital Zurich (2017-2021), (ii) had a PCS score ≥3 points, (iii) had evidence of obstructive or non-obstructive PVD by duplex sonography or cross-sectional imaging, and (iv) underwent endovascular therapy.
