Profile of Patients with Isolated Distal Deep Vein Thrombosis versus Proximal Deep Vein Thrombosis or Pulmonary Embolism: RE-COVERY DVT/PE Study.

Semin Thromb Hemost 2021 May 10. Epub 2021 May 10.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Isolated distal deep vein thrombosis (IDDVT) is presumed to be more benign than proximal DVT (PDVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE), suggesting a need for different management approaches. This subgroup analysis of the RE-COVERY DVT/PE global, observational study investigated patient characteristics, hospitalization details, and anticoagulant therapy in patients with IDDVT in real-world settings in 34 countries enrolled from January 2016 to May 2017. Data were analyzed descriptively according to the type and location of the index venous thromboembolism (VTE): IDDVT, PDVT ± distal DVT (DDVT), and PE ± DVT. Read More

Mondor's Disease of the Arm Following Breast Cancer Treatment.

Cureus 2021 Feb 18;13(2):e13421. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Breast Surgery, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, St. Albans, GBR.

Mondor's disease is a rare, peculiar form of superficial thrombophlebitis which mainly affects the subcutaneous veins of the breast, anterior chest wall, neck, axilla, upper limbs and penis. In most cases, it presents with rapid development of a painful subcutaneous cord-like structure that later becomes less painful, but a fibrous band persists. Unfortunately, aetiology and management are not very clear, but it is a self-limiting condition in most cases. Read More

Chest Masculinization Technique and Outcomes in 72 Double-incision Chest-contouring Procedures with Free Nipple Grafting.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Mar 15;9(3):e3459. Epub 2021 Mar 15.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, N.J.

Chest masculinization for gender affirmation is the removal of breast tissue and excess skin, often with repositioning of the nipple areola complexes to achieve a male-appearing chest. A double-incision technique with free nipple grafting (FNG) is the preferred method for trans men with large, ptotic breasts. The authors present the outcomes of 72 consecutive chest masculinization cases using this technique. Read More

Adventitial Progenitor Cells of Human Great Saphenous Vein Enhance the Resolution of Venous Thrombosis via Neovascularization.

Stem Cells Int 2021 23;2021:8816763. Epub 2021 Feb 23.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Second Affiliated Hospital, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China.

Background: Vascular adventitia contains progenitor cells and is shown to participate in vascular remolding. Progenitor cells are recruited into the venous thrombi in mice to promote neovascularization. We hypothesized that the adventitial progenitor cells of human great saphenous vein (HGSV-AdPC) enhance the resolution of venous thrombosis via neovascularization. Read More

Superficial Thrombophlebitis of the Breast (Mondor's Disease): An Uncommon Localization of Common Disease.

Clin Med Insights Case Rep 2020 11;13:1179547620972414. Epub 2020 Nov 11.

Clinic for Radiation Oncology and Radiology, Institute of Oncology and Radiology of Serbia, Belgrade, Serbia.

Mondor's disease (MD), or superficial thrombophlebitis of the anterolateral thoracoabdominal wall, is a rare disease that presents with a palpable cord-like induration beneath the skin. It is a benign, self-limiting condition with probably underestimated significance due to the fact it may be a rare manifestation of an underlying breast carcinoma. It can also resemble breast malignancy and, if physician is not familiar with clinical features of MD, it may lead to unnecessary biopsy. Read More

A S Petrikov

Khirurgiia (Mosk) 2020 (11):115-126

Altai State Medical University, Barnaul, Russia.

Venous thromboembolic complications (VTEC) including pulmonary embolism and acute thrombosis of deep and superficial veins of the lower extremities are often observed in postoperative period. Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) is a common remedy for prevention and treatment of VTEC due to high efficiency, safety, easy use and dosage. According to the modern literature data, LMWH is characterized by different effectiveness in relation to VTEC and risk of bleeding in patients after surgical and traumatological procedures, as well as in ones with severe forms of chronic venous diseases.

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

Int J Cardiol 2020 09 20;315:92-98. 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
