Intra-Operative Vascular Injury and Control During Laparoscopic and Robotic Mesh Explantation for Chronic Post Herniorrhaphy Inguinal Pain (CPIP).

Surg Technol Int 2021 Apr 20;38. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Department of Surgery, David Geffen School of Medicine, Lichtenstein Amid Hernia Institute at UCLA Santa Monica, CA, USA.

Introduction: Chronic postherniorrhaphy inguinal pain (CPIP) is common following inguinal hernia repair. As even primary minimally-invasive inguinal hernia repairs carry a risk of significant intra-operative bleeding, it is unsurprising that reoperative groin exploration and mesh explantation for chronic post-inguinal herniorrhaphy pain confers an even higher risk of arteriotomy or venotomy due to a distorted anatomy and the presence of adhesions. In this report, we present a single institution's experience with the management of intra-operative vascular injury encountered during minimally invasive groin exploration and mesh explantation for CPIP.

Design and Retrospective Application of a Spine Trauma DVT Prophylaxis Protocol on Level 1 Trauma Center Patient Database.

Global Spine J 2021 Apr 20:2192568220979139. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

22683Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, TX, USA.

Study Design: Systematic literature review.

Objectives: The impact of thromboembolic disease on the morbidity and mortality of patients with acute spinal cord injury is well documented, with rates as high as 67%-100% among untreated patients. The efficacy of mechanical prophylaxis as a stand-alone measure has been questioned, so we sought to determine a safe perioperative window for chemical anticoagulation use after spine surgery.

Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, Division of Neuropathology, Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, and the New York Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, 10032, USA.

Many patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection develop neurological signs and symptoms, though, to date, little evidence exists that primary infection of the brain is a significant contributing factor. We present the clinical, neuropathological, and molecular findings of 41 consecutive patients with SARS-CoV-2 infections who died and underwent autopsy in our medical center. The mean age was 74 years (38-97 years), 27 patients (66%) were male and 34 (83%) were of Hispanic/Latinx ethnicity. Read More

Receipt of anticoagulation after venous thromboembolism diagnoses during delivery hospitalizations.

J Matern Fetal Neonatal Med 2021 Apr 15:1-3. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, USA.

Introduction: Obstetric venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a leading cause of maternal mortality. While hospital discharge data provide a readily accessible means of studying this relatively rare outcome, diagnosis codes are of limited validity. Prior studies have demonstrated that VTE billing codes may be subject to misclassification and false positives and overestimate obstetric VTE risk. Read More

Mayo Clin Proc 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Gonda Vascular Center, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN; Cardiovascular Department, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. Electronic address:

Objective: To compare outcomes among patients with calf deep vein thrombosis (DVT) stratified by management strategy because distal or calf DVT is said to have low rates of propagation, embolization, and recurrence and, as such, guideline recommendations include provisions for serial imaging without treatment.

Patients And Methods: Consecutive patients with ultrasound-confirmed acute DVT involving the calf veins (January 1, 2016, to August 1, 2018) were identified by scrutinizing the Gonda Vascular Center Ultrasound database. Patients were segregated into 2 categories depending on management strategy; anticoagulation vs serial surveillance ultrasound without anticoagulation. Read More

Histological Assessment of Lower Extremity Deep Vein Thrombi from Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Mechanical Thrombectomy.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2021 Apr 6. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, NYU Langone Health, New York, NY 10016, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Histological analyses of deep vein thrombi (DVT) are based on autopsy samples and animal models. No prior study has reported on thrombus composition following percutaneous mechanical extraction. As elements of chronicity and organization render thrombus resistant to anticoagulation and thrombolysis, a better understanding of clot evolution may inform therapies. Read More

Relevance of immobility as a risk factor for symptomatic proximal and isolated distal deep vein thrombosis in acutely ill medical inpatients.

Vasc Med 2021 Apr 5:1358863X21996825. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Division of Angiology and Blood Coagulation, IRCCS Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria di Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Immobility is a well-recognized risk factor for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in surgical patients, whereas the level of DVT risk conferred by immobility is less defined in patients on medical wards. The aim of this study was to establish whether immobility and its duration are associated with the risk of DVT in acutely ill medical inpatients. We conducted a cohort study in acutely ill medical inpatients. Read More
