C M Dike V C Enemuo

West Afr J Med 2022 Apr;39(4):425-428

Department of Surgery, University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu State, Nigeria.

Background: Mondor's disease (MD) is a rare cause of chest pain, characterized by thrombophlebitis of the subcutaneous veins of the anterolateral thoracoabdominal wall. It is a benign, self-limiting condition that is often underdiagnosed due to lack of knowledge of the condition. Although the exact aetiology is unclear, several predisposing factors, including excessive physical activity have been postulated. 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.

Pain Outcomes Following Mechanochemical Ablation vs Cyanoacrylate Adhesive for the Treatment of Primary Truncal Saphenous Vein Incompetence: The MOCCA Randomized Clinical Trial.

JAMA Surg 2022 May;157(5):395-404

Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom.

Importance: Endovenous thermal ablations (ETAs) are recommended as first-line treatment for truncal vein reflux, have a short recovery time, and are cost-effective. However, ETAs are associated with discomfort during tumescent anesthesia infiltration. To minimize discomfort, nonthermal, nontumescent ablation techniques had emerged in the form of mechanochemical ablation (MOCA) and cyanoacrylate adhesive injection (CAE). Read More

Urologist, Clínica Reina Sofía, Bogotá, Colombia.

The thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis, called Mondor's penile disease (PMD), is a condition with a low incidence worldwide. In general, it is considered a self-limited disease that usually resolves with conservative management and very rarely requires surgical intervention. We report the case of a 41-year-old patient, who presented PMD which persists after medical treatment with nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug and low molecular weight heparin. Read More

Following the occurrence of thrombotic events in the affected veins, the lumen often becomes occluded with fibrin and inflammatory cells. A hyper-coagulative state is one of the underlying causes although most cases of PMD are idiopathic. Read More

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

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
