May-Thurner Syndrome: An Anatomic Predisposition to Deep Vein Thrombosis.

Cureus 2021 Jul 28;13(7):e16682. Epub 2021 Jul 28.

Department of Internal Medicine, Mount Sinai Hospital, Chicago, USA.

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is a rare clinical condition caused by extrinsic compression of the left common iliac vein by the right common iliac artery, leading to venous stasis and predisposing to thrombus formation. Here, we present the case of a 39-year-old female with no obviously known other risk factors predisposing to thrombosis who presented with severe left leg pain and swelling for a week. The international normalized ratio was elevated and the venous Doppler study showed extensive thrombosis extending from the left common iliac vein to the common femoral vein and the popliteal vein.

May-Thurner Syndrome with Double Compression of the Iliac Vein: Lessons Based on a Case Report.

Am J Case Rep 2021 Apr 25;22:e928957. Epub 2021 Apr 25.

Radiodiagnostic and Radiotherapy Unit, Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences and Advanced Technologies "GF Ingrassia", University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

BACKGROUND May-Thurner syndrome, also known as Cockett's syndrome, is characterized by vascular alterations due to stenosis of the left iliac vein, usually caused by compression against the vertebral column by the right iliac artery. Doppler ultrasound represents the first level of examination for the study of this vascular pathology, and allows a very accurate study of the lower-limb vessels. We describe an unusual presentation with double stenosis of the left common iliac vein. Read More

Type I toxin-dependent generation of superoxide affects the persister life cycle of Escherichia coli.

Sci Rep 2019 10 3;9(1):14256. Epub 2019 Oct 3.

Institute for Microbiology and Molecular Biology, Justus Liebig University Giessen, 35392, Giessen, Germany.

Induction of growth stasis by bacterial toxins from chromosomal toxin-antitoxin systems is suspected to favor formation of multidrug-tolerant cells, named persisters. Recurrent infections are often attributed to resuscitation and regrowth of persisters upon termination of antibiotic therapy. Several lines of evidence point to oxidative stress as a crucial factor during the persister life cycle. Read More

Cardiac CT Differentiates Left Atrial Appendage Thrombi from Circulatory Stasis in Acute Stroke Patients.

In Vivo 2016 09-10;30(5):671-6

Department of Clinical Radiology, Kuopio University Hospital, Kuopio, Finland Heart Center, Kuopio University Hospital, Kuopio, Finland.

Background/aim: The left atrial appendage (LAA) is the most typical origin for a cardioembolic thrombusins' stroke etiology. Although transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is widely used, this technique encounters difficulties in differentiating solid thrombus from circulatory stasis/spontaneous echo contrast (SEC). We assessed whether cardiac computed tomography (cCT) could more accurately detect LAA thrombi. Read More
