Varicose vein on right tibia, post-traumatic varicose ulcer, and bone exposure: A case report.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2020 22;8:2050313X20936078. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Department of Nephropathy, The First Hospital of Jilin University, Changchun, China.

Varicose ulcer, a severe symptom of chronic venous insufficiency, may be refractory to treatment when accompanied by bone exposure. The lack of a blood supply and fresh granulation tissue on the exposed bone can result in a protracted healing time. A 59-year-old man suffered from varicose veins for 10 years, a varicose ulcer for 1 year, and an exposed right tibia for 40 days after using traditional Chinese medicinal plasters. Read More

Recanalization of an Occluded Vena Cava Filter and Iliac Veins with Kissing Stents to Treat Postthrombotic Syndrome with a Venous Stasis Ulcer.

Vasc Specialist Int 2020 Jun;36(2):116-121

Departments of Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) are effective in preventing pulmonary embolism and their usage has rapidly increased over the past decades. However, complications have also significantly increased, as IVCF occlusion causes serious chronic venous insufficiency. Herein, we report a case of infrarenal IVCF occlusion that was successfully treated with the introduction of kissing stents through the IVCF into both iliac veins. Read More

Complete venous ulceration healing following perforator ablation does not depend on treatment modality.

Ann Vasc Surg 2020 Jun 27. Epub 2020 Jun 27.

Division of Vascular Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA.

Objectives: Venous leg ulceration (VLU) represents the most advanced form of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Persistent VLU that fail to respond to non-invasive treatment require a minimally invasive endovascular treatment which may include chemical (ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy [UGFS]) and thermal ablation (endovenous laser therapy [EVLT] or radiofrequency ablation [RFA]) targeting incompetent veins. Current guidelines suggest ablation of incompetent perforating veins (IPV) juxtaposed to active or healed VLU; however, the ideal treatment modality is unknown. Read More

Hiroshima University Hospital, Hiroshima, Japan.

Elephantiasis nostras verrucosa (ENV) is a rare dermatological disease associated with chronic lymphedema caused by obesity, soft tissue infection, or chronic venous insufficiency. Although surgical debridement may be sufficient to treat the skin manifestations of ENV, treatment of ENV should focus on reducing lymph stasis to improve the skin changes and prevent recurrence. In this case report, we present the case of a 79-year-old woman who developed obesity-associated ENV in the lower leg. Read More

Academic Department of Vascular Surgery, School of Cardiovascular Medicine and Science, St Thomas' Hospital, King's College London, London, United Kingdom.

The VenaSeal closure system (Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minn) is a nonthermal, minimally invasive method for the treatment of superficial venous insufficiency using a proprietary -butyl cyanoacrylate. We report the case of a 45-year-old woman who underwent right great saphenous vein closure with VenaSeal and subsequently had a biphasic reaction to -butyl cyanoacrylate, confirmed on patch testing that had negative results for other cyanoacrylates. Despite the initial allergic response, which settled with antihistamines, follow-up duplex ultrasound imaging confirmed successful great saphenous vein closure, and the affected vein remained in situ without further complication.

Cardiol Ther 2020 Jun 2. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Vascular Surgery, Promedica Jobst Vascular Institute, Toledo, OH, USA.

Despite the recognition of the importance of the anatomical extent of venous reflux, its description in medical literature is inconsistent in terms and classifications. Recent international consensus documents provide clear definitions for the three main classes of reflux: segmental, multi-segmental, and axial. This report addresses the most important aspects of the standard definitions of the anatomical extent of venous reflux, the differences between the three classes of reflux, and the challenges of implementing this classification in clinical practice.

Single Orifice Outflow Reconstruction in Various Tributaries of the Right Liver Graft Using Commercialized Polyethylene Terephthalate Y-graft: A technical Simplification of Venous Reconstruction in 3 Cases.

Transplant Proc 2020 May 21. Epub 2020 May 21.

Department of Surgery, Gachon University Gil Medical Center, Gachon University School of Medicine, Incheon, Korea. Electronic address:

Background: Hepatic vein reconstruction is very important in living donor liver transplantation to prevent outflow obstruction and maintain the graft function. In right liver grafts, reconstruction of the tributary of the middle hepatic vein (MHV) or inferior hepatic vein (IHV) is mandatory, and several options are recommended. Recently, it has been reported that a single, wide orifice is an important perquisite for adequate outflow in liver transplantation. Read More

Supervised exercise protocol for lower limbs in subjects with chronic venous disease: an evaluator-blinded, randomized clinical trial.

Trials 2020 May 19;21(1):414. Epub 2020 May 19.

PneumoCardioVascular Lab/HUOL Hospital Universitário Onofre Lopes, Empresa Brasileira de Serviços Hospitalares (EBSERRH) Departamento de Fisioterapia Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte, Campus Universitário Central, Caixa Postal 1524/ Campus Universitário Lagoa Nova, Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, CEP: 59078-900, Brazil.

Background: Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) causes pathophysiological changes in the lower-limb muscles, particularly the calf muscles, and limits ankle range of motion (ROM). These changes reduce functional activities and decrease quality of life (QOL). Although several studies have shown the benefits of exercise (strengthening the calf muscles to improve calf-muscle pumping and QOL) in patients with CVI, few studies are randomized controlled trials.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency as a Predisposing Factor for Basal Cell Carcinoma on Legs.

Ann Vasc Surg 2020 May 16. Epub 2020 May 16.

Department of Pathology, Medical School, Unicamp, Campinas, SP, Brazil. Electronic address:

Background: The main risk factor associated with basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) is believed to be exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR). In the case of lower limb BCC, the frequency is higher in women, possibly because of greater exposure of the leg to UVR. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), also more common in women, may have some association with leg BCCs. Read More

A saline contrast-enhanced echocardiography-guided approach to cryoballoon ablation.

Pacing Clin Electrophysiol 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

Kansai Rosai Hospital, Cardiovascular Center, Amagasaki, Hyogo, Japan.

Background: Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) with a cryoballoon usually uses iodinated contrast medium for confirmation of venous occlusion. We hypothesized that an alternative to angiography with iodinated contrast, saline bolus-enhanced echocardiography with the microbubbles formed in situ, could be used to assess venous occlusion. We sought to assess the efficacy and safety of the contrast-enhanced intracardiac echocardiographic (ICE) approach. Read More

Patient-Level, Institutional, and Temporal Variations in Use of Imaging Modalities to Confirm Pulmonary Embolism.

Circ Cardiovasc Imaging 2020 May 16;13(5):e010651. Epub 2020 May 16.

Department of Internal Medicine, Hospital de Badalona Germans Trias i Pujol, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain (M.M.).

Background: The choice of the imaging modality for diagnosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) could be influenced by provider, patient or hospital characteristics, or over time. However, little is known about the choice of the diagnostic modalities in practice. The aim of this study was to evaluate the variations in the use of imaging modalities for patients with acute PE.
