The angle of the outflow graft to the aorta can affect recirculation due to aortic insufficiency under left ventricular assist device support.

J Artif Organs 2018 Dec 23;21(4):399-404. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Department of Artificial Organs, National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center Research Institute, Osaka, Japan.

Aortic insufficiency (AI) is a crucial complication during continuous-flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support. Our previous clinical study suggested that a larger angle between the outflow graft and the aorta (O-A angle) could cause AI progression. This study examined the effect of the O-A angle on the hemodynamics of AI under LVAD support in an acute animal experimental model. Read More

Management of Venous Thromboembolism in Pregnancy.

Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med 2018 Jul 23;20(8):69. Epub 2018 Jul 23.

Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, Yawkey 7B, Boston, MA, 02114, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This manuscript addresses the risks for venous thromboembolism (VTE) during pregnancy and the associated challenges of both diagnosis and treatment.

Recent Findings: The obstacles to diagnosis given lack of specificity of typical biomarkers to predict VTE in pregnancy, as well as the unique fetal and bleeding risks introduced by managing massive pulmonary embolism (PE) with thrombolytics or thrombectomy are highlighted. VTE during pregnancy and the postpartum window occurs at a 6-10-fold higher rate compared with age-matched peers and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Read More

Retrieval of an embedded suprarenal inferior vena cava filter using the Hangman technique.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 Dec 5;62(6):806-809. Epub 2018 Jul 5.

Department of Radiology, Alfred Health, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Inferior vena cava filters should be ideally placed in the infrarenal caval segment to maintain renal vein outflow and thereby patency; however, in certain circumstances a suprarenal position may be required. Suprarenal filters are subject to the same risks as for infrarenal filters including tilt. While many advanced techniques have been used for infrarenal filter retrievals, there is a paucity of evidence supporting the use of these retrieval techniques in the suprarenal segment. Read More
