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

Blood 2019 Feb 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.

Rare Case of Unilateral Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens With Bilateral Deep Vein Thrombosis at a Community Military Hospital Emergency Department.

Mil Med 2017 05;182(5):e1823-e1825

Department of Emergency Medicine, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, 1 Robert Wood Johnson Place, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.

Phlegmasia cerulea dolens (PCD) is a rare entity that refers to a painful, edematous, and cyanotic limb due to a massive deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Due to its rarity, the exact incidence is unknown; however, it is vital that the military health care provider recognize it as the condition can be limb and life threatening. Due to the recent increase in combat-related operations, DVT has had a steady increase in the past 10 years in the military population, and as such has become a condition of special interest and surveillance in the armed forces.

Is Infection an Independent Risk Factor for Venous Thromboembolism? A Population-Based, Case-Control Study.

Am J Med 2018 Mar 4;131(3):307-316.e2. Epub 2017 Oct 4.

Department of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn; Division of Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn; Division of Epidemiology, Department of Health Sciences Research, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.

Background: The independent association of recent infection with venous thromboembolism is uncertain. The study aims were to test both overall infection (site unspecified) and specific infection sites as potential risk factors for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism adjusting for other known venous thromboembolism factors.

Methods: By using Rochester Epidemiology Project resources, we identified all Olmsted County, Minnesota, residents with objectively diagnosed incident deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism over the 13-year period 1988 to 2000 (cases; n = 1303) and 1 to 2 residents without venous thromboembolism matched to each case on age, sex, and incident venous thromboembolism date (controls; n = 1494).
