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 Nov 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.

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).

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.

For a long time superficial thrombophlebitis has been thought to be a rather benign condition. Recently, when duplex ultrasound technique is used for the diagnosis more and more often, the disease is proved to be more dangerous than anticipated. Thrombosis propagates to the deep veins in 6-44% and pulmonary embolism was observed on the patients in 1,5-33%. Read More

The Effectiveness of Diclofenac Sodium in the Treatment of Mondor's Disease of the Breast: The Topical Patch Compared to the Oral Capsules.

Breast J 2017 Jul 12;23(4):395-400. Epub 2017 Jan 12.

Department of Pharmacy, Al Ansar General Hospital, Medina, Saudi Arabia.

Mondor's disease of the breast is a rare, benign sclerosing superficial thrombophlebitis of the subcutaneous veins of the anterior or lateral chest wall, which is treated conservatively. We aim in this study to evaluate the outcome and effectiveness of our treatment protocol using oral diclofenac sodium and topical diclofenac sodium patch in 172 patients. A retrospective database analysis of 172 female patients between January 2001 and December 2010 was done. Read More

Predicting and preventing thromboembolic events in patients receiving cisplatin-based chemotherapy for germ cell tumours.

Eur J Cancer 2016 12 4;69:151-157. Epub 2016 Nov 4.

Department of Cancer Medicine, Institut Gustave Roussy, Université Paris-Sud, 94800 Villejuif, France. Electronic address:

Background: Patients with germ cell tumours (GCT) receiving cisplatin-based chemotherapy are at high risk of thromboembolic events (TEE). Previously, we identified serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and body surface area (BSA) as independent predictive factors for TEE. The aim of this study was to validate these predictive factors and to assess the impact of thromboembolism prophylaxis in patients at risk of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Read More

Initial management and outcomes after superficial thrombophlebitis: The Cardiovascular Research Network Venous Thromboembolism study.

J Hosp Med 2016 06 1;11(6):432-4. Epub 2016 Feb 1.

Division of Hospital Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California.

Although superficial thrombophlebitis (SVTE) is generally considered a benign, self-limited disease, accumulating evidence suggests that it often leads to more serious forms of venous thromboembolism. We reviewed the medical charts of 329 subjects with SVTE from the Cardiovascular Research Network Venous Thromboembolism cohort study to collect information on the acute treatment of SVTE and subsequent diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis within 1 year. All participants received care within Kaiser Permanente Northern California, a large, integrated healthcare delivery system. Read More

Behçet's pulmonary artery aneurysms treated with infliximab and monitored with the 6-min walk test.

Oxf Med Case Reports 2016 Apr 26;2016(4):94-6. Epub 2016 Apr 26.

Department of Rheumatology , Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital , Norfolk , UK.

Pulmonary involvement in Behçet's disease (BD) is uncommon; however, it is potentially fatal due to the risk of massive haemoptysis. We describe the case of a 36-year-old male presenting with a 2-month history of worsening dyspnoea, weight loss, haemoptysis, oral ulceration, erythema nodosum and superficial thrombophlebitis. He was diagnosed with pulmonary vasculitis secondary to BD; however, his symptoms were refractory to initial treatment with cyclophosphamide, azathioprine and prednisolone. Read More
