Impact of concomitant deep or superficial venous thrombosis of the legs on survival of patients with pulmonary embolism.

Int J Cardiol 2020 May 20. Epub 2020 May 20.

Department of Cardiology, Cardiology I, University Medical Center Mainz (Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz), Mainz, Germany.

Background: Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a frequent cause of death and morbidity. A few studies suggest that clot burden in pulmonary artery bed is related to PE patients' survival, but the impact of concomitant deep venous thrombosis and/or thrombophlebitis (DVT) on short-term survival of PE patients remains unclear. Thus, we aimed to investigate the impact of DVT on adverse outcomes in PE patients. Read More

Internist (Berl) 2020 Jun;61(6):617-620

Krankenhaus Bad Waldsee, Oberschwabenklinik gGmbH, Robert-Koch-Straße 38, 88339, Bad Waldsee, Deutschland.

The case of a 72-year-old female patient with exanthem and concomitant neuropathy of the instep of the foot and progressive ipsilateral lower leg pain is reported. Sonographically, a superficial vein thrombosis with extension into the deep venous system originating from the exanthem was observed. On the basis of the clinical picture as well as the serological and electrophysiological findings, a rare diagnosis of acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans with peripheral neuropathy was made, which could significantly promote the local development of venous thrombosis.

ASSESSMENT OF QUALITY OF LIFE IN PATIENTS AFTER THE TREATMENT OF ACUTE ASCENDING THROMBOPHLEBITIS OF THE GREAT SAPHENOUS VEIN WITH OF HIGH-FREQUENCY ENDOVENOUS WELDING.

Georgian Med News 2020 Jan(298):13-16

Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Kyiv, Ukraine.

Acute thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins is an urgent problem as it can spread to the deep veins with the subsequent development of pulmonary embolism. The social implications of varicotrombophlebitis are the long-term disability of most patients up to complete disability, so finding the least invasive methods of correction of the discussed disease is a pressing issue of modern phlebology. The research objective is to carry out a comparative analysis of the quality of life of patients with acute ascending thrombophlebitis of the great sapheneous vein after treatment with high-frequency endovenous welding and standard phlebectomy.

D-dimer levels in patients with thromboangiitis obliterans.

Natl Med J India 2019 May-Jun;32(3):134-136

Department of Biostatistics, Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Background: Thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO) or Buerger disease is a recurring progressive segmental vasculopathy that presents with inflammation and thrombosis of small and medium arteries and veins of the hands and feet. The exact cause remains unknown, with tobacco use (primarily smoking but also smokeless tobacco) being highly associated with the disease. The diagnosis is clinical and the lack of a diagnostic gold standard is a deterrent to diagnosing it in patients with atypical presentations. Read More

Cerebral Infarction Followed by Myocardial Infarction in a Young Adult with Protein C and S Deficiency.

Cureus 2020 Jan 15;12(1):e6665. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

Internal Medicine, Dow University of Health Sciences, Karachi, PAK.

Protein C (PC) and protein S (PS) are natural anticoagulants that protect the body against thrombosis, and their deficiency, either inherited or acquired, renders the body to a hypercoagulable state. This leads to venous thromboembolism manifesting as thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and superficial thrombophlebitis among other causes. The involvement of arteries is rare and has been explained by only a few studies. Read More

Isolated Superficial Dorsal Penile Vein Thrombosis due to Scabies Infestation.

J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2020 Feb;30(2):216-218

University of Health Sciences, Sultan Abdulhamid Han Research and Training Hospital, Department of Urology, Istanbul, Turkey.

Thrombosis or thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis is called penile Mondor's disease. Although many factors are suggested as the etiology, but it has not been clarified yet. Hypersensitivity reactions may predispose to this complication in some patients; and it results from the formation of antigen-antibody immune complexes in the circulation as a consequence of the penetration of antigenic debris into the circulation due to pruritus-related excoriations caused by parasitic infestations like scabies.

Magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis of recurrent ipsilateral deep vein thrombosis.

Blood 2020 Apr;135(16):1377-1385

Department of Thrombosis and Hemostasis, Leiden University Medical Center, Leiden, The Netherlands.

The diagnosis of recurrent ipsilateral deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is challenging, because persistent intravascular abnormalities after previous DVT often hinder a diagnosis by compression ultrasonography. Magnetic resonance direct thrombus imaging (MRDTI), a technique without intravenous contrast and with a 10-minute acquisition time, has been shown to accurately distinguish acute recurrent DVT from chronic thrombotic remains. We have evaluated the safety of MRDTI as the sole test for excluding recurrent ipsilateral DVT. Read More

Guidelines for superficial venous thrombosis.

J Vasc Bras 2019 Nov 20;18:e20180105. Epub 2019 Nov 20.

Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP, Faculdade de Medicina de Botucatu, Botucatu, SP, Brasil.

Superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) or superficial thrombophlebitis is characterized by thrombi within superficial veins, with partial involvement or occlusion of the lumen and inflammatory reaction along the course of the vein. Clinical diagnosis tends to be straightforward, but supplementary tests and examinations are needed to confirm thrombosis extension and possible thromboembolic complications. SVT can be associated with deep venous thrombosis in 6 to 40% of cases, with asymptomatic pulmonary embolism (PE) in 20 to 33%, and with symptomatic PE in 2 to 13%. Read More

Thromboinflammation: challenges of therapeutically targeting coagulation and other host defense mechanisms.

Blood 2019 02 14;133(9):906-918. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Heart Research Institute, Newtown, 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.

Formulation Development and Characterization of Nanoemulsion-Based Formulation for Topical Delivery of Heparinoid.

J Pharm Sci 2018 11 25;107(11):2883-2890. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Center for Drug Delivery Research, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Mercer University, Atlanta, Georgia, 30341. Electronic address:

Heparinoid is commonly used for the treatment of superficial thrombophlebitis, a condition wherein inflammation and clotting occurs in the veins below the skin surface. However, stratum corneum is a major barrier that limits the delivery of hydrophilic heparinoid, in and across the skin. The aim of the present study was to develop a nonirritant topical formulation for heparinoid incorporating chemical penetration enhancers and investigate the delivery of heparinoid across the human epidermis using in vitro vertical Franz diffusion cells.

Mondor's Disease: A Review of the Literature.

Intern Med 2018 Sep 18;57(18):2607-2612. Epub 2018 May 18.

Department of Diagnostic and Generalist Medicine, Dokkyo Medical University Hospital, Japan.

Mondor's disease (MD) is a rare disease that manifests with a palpable cord-like induration on the body surface. In general, MD is a self-limited, benign thrombophlebitis that resolves in four to eight weeks without any specific treatment. Cases of MD can be roughly categorized into three different groups based on the site of the lesion as follows: original MD of the anterolateral thoracoabdominal wall, penile MD with dorsum and dorsolateral aspects of the penis, and axillary web syndrome with mid-upper arm after axillary surgery.

Assessment of a topical product based on polysulfated galactosaminoglycan as an adjuvant in the treatment of acute STP and stasis dermo-hypodermitis.

Minerva Med 2018 Aug 24;109(4):276-279. Epub 2018 Apr 24.

Gemelli Policlinic, Rome, Italy -

Background: Superficial thrombophlebitis (STP) is a relatively frequent pathology characterized by possible extension to the deep venous circulation, with notable local inflammatory reaction which is treated by subcutaneous administration of Fondaparinux. Stasis dermo-hypodermitis is characterized by cutaneous hyperpigmentation and eczema, treatment for which consists of the use of drugs targeting endothelial cells (mesoglycan, FFPM, sulodexide). In this study we evaluated the impact of local application of a mixture of semi-synthetic polysulfated galactosaminoglycans on the regression rate of STP and dermo-hypodermitis in patients treated with best medical therapy (BMT).

What Is Vascular Behçet's Disease?

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Mar;11(1):52-56

Vascular Surgery, Aichi Medical University, Nagakute, Aichi, Japan.

Vascular Behçet's disease (BD) would keep risk of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm due to deterioration of the disease even after vascular surgery was successfully done. Therefore, it is one of the least-welcome diseases for vascular surgeons. There still exist several points on a concept and criteria of the vascular BD which not only general practitioners but also the vascular surgeons do not understand. Read More
