The role of inheritance in the development of adolescent varicoceles.

Transl Androl Urol 2018 Dec;7(6):920-925

Smith Institute for Urology, Northwell Health, New Hyde Park, NY, USA.

Background: The prevalence of varicoceles is estimated to be 15% in the general population but is nearly 35% among men with primary infertility and increases by 10% with each decade of life. Studies among adults infer a higher rate of varicoceles among first-degree relatives of patients with varicoceles. However, these studies do not consider the presence of varicoceles, or other venous abnormalities, at the time of desired paternity in first-degree relatives of adolescent patients. Read More

Behavior of Smooth Muscle Cells under Hypoxic Conditions: Possible Implications on the Varicose Vein Endothelium.

Biomed Res Int 2018 18;2018:7156150. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

Department of Medicine and Medical Specialities, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Alcalá, Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, Spain.

Varicose veins are a disease with high incidence and prevalence. In the venous wall, the smooth muscle cells (SMCs) act in the vascular homeostasis that secretes multiple substances in response to stimuli. Any alteration of these cells can modify the function and structure of the other venous layers such as the endothelium, resulting in increases in endothelial permeability and release of substances.

Clarity reveals a more protracted temporal course of axon swelling and disconnection than previously described following traumatic brain injury.

Brain Pathol 2018 Nov 16. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Neurosurgery, Penn Center for Brain Injury and Repair, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

Diffuse axonal injury (DAI) is an important consequence of traumatic brain injury (TBI). At the moment of trauma, axons rarely disconnect, but undergo cytoskeletal disruption and transport interruption leading to protein accumulation within swellings. The amyloid precursor protein (APP) accumulates rapidly and the standard histological evaluation of axonal pathology relies upon its detection. Read More

Department of Cardiovascular Diseases and Diabetes Biology, Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India.

Given the high prevalence of chronic venous diseases (CVD), defining criteria to screen patients who are in need for intervention is attaining primacy. An important clinical criterion for treating CVD is incompetence of larger veins. We have assessed the association of size of afflicted veins with disease severity in patients with CVD to define an acceptable criterion to identify patients who need intervention. Read More

New Method of Flush Saphenofemoral Ligation that is Expected to Inhibit Varicose Vein Recurrence in the Groin: Flush Ligation Using the Avulsion Technique Method.

Ann Vasc Dis 2018 Sep;11(3):286-291

Department of Surgery, Memuro Public Hospital, Kasai-gun, Hokkaido, Japan.

Recently, with the spread of laser ablation therapy, it has been called into question whether flush ligation of the great saphenous vein (GSV) reduces varicose vein recurrence after surgery. Because we thought such recurrence was caused by a narrow branch resection area, we developed a new method of flush ligation (the avulsion technique method).

A Randomised Clinical Trial of Buffered Tumescent Local Anaesthesia During Endothermal Ablation for Superficial Venous Incompetence.

Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg 2018 Nov 29;56(5):699-708. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Academic Vascular Surgery, Hull-York Medical School, Hull Royal Infirmary, Hull, UK.

Objective/background: Endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) is the recommended first line intervention for superficial venous incompetence (SVI). While the infiltration of perivenous tumescent local anaesthesia (TLA) is key to procedural success, it is paradoxically the predominant source of patient reported discomfort. This randomised controlled trial investigates the potential to reduce peri-procedural pain and improve patient reported outcome measures (PROMs), including quality of life (QoL) using TLA buffered to physiological pH.

Chronic venous insufficiency and varicose veins of the lower extremities.

Korean J Intern Med 2018 Oct 26. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

Division of Interventional Cardiology, Calhoun Cardiology Center, UConn Health, University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Farmington, CT, USA.

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) of the lower extremities manifests itself in various clinical spectrums, ranging from asymptomatic but cosmetic problems to severe symptoms, such as venous ulcer. CVI is a relatively common medical problem but is often overlooked by healthcare providers because of an underappreciation of the magnitude and impact of the problem, as well as incomplete recognition of the various presenting manifestations of primary and secondary venous disorders. The prevalence of CVI in South Korea is expected to increase, given the possible underdiagnoses of CVI, the increase in obesity and an aging population. Read More
