BACKGROUND: May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) has a different etiology from that of general deep vein thrombosis (DVT). However, few clinical comparisons of MTS-induced and non-MTS- induced DVT have been reported. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical results of pharmacomechanical thrombectomy (PMT) in DVT with and without MTS. METHODS: Forty-seven iliac-vein thrombosis patients treated with PMT between January 2008 and December 2013 were enrolled. 25 patients had DVT with MTS and 22 patients had iliac vein DVT without MTS...

In the past, arterial and venous thrombosis have been accepted as two completely different diseases. Recently, the thesis of two separate pathogenetic mechanisms of venous and arterial thrombosis has been challenged by accumulation of evidence which suggest that patients with atherothrombosis are at increased risk for venous thrombosis. Pathophysiological studies indicated that etiopathogenetic mechanisms of both diseases are similar and that coagulation and platelet activation participate in both venous and arterial thrombogenesis...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) has been shown to decrease aneurysm related mortality. Likely by providing an opportunity to intervene while the aneurysm is still intact, but possibly also when and the anatomy still relatively uncomplicated which would provide a less complex procedure. Our aim was to retrospectively investigate the complexity of repair for screening-detected AAAs in a cohort of 65-year-old men. METHODS: All screening detected AAA cases that underwent repair between Sept 2010 and June 2014 in the most southern region of Sweden were included...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) usually presents with intermittent claudication (IC). The aim of the present study was to assess, in clinical practice, the pattern of use of pharmacological therapies for IC in stable PAD outpatients. METHODS: A propensity analysis was performed using data from the IDOMENEO study, an observational prospective multicenter cohort study. The association between any pharmacological symptomatic IC therapy with different variables was investigated using generalized linear mixed models with pharmacological therapy as response variable and binomial error...

BACKGROUND: Meteorological variables have been reported to be associated with increased morbidity; however, fewer studies have study the correlations between the occurrences of acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and meteorological variables. METHODS: Data relating to hospital admissions with DVT in Shenyang were collected retrospectively for a ten year period for which corresponding meteorological recordings were available. Using a time-series design and distributed lag nonlinear models (DLNM), we estimated the relative risk (RR) of DVT presentation associated with mean daily temperatures, including cumulative RR for a 28-day period, and RR for individual daily lags through 28 days...

INTRODUCTION: Lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) is increasing in prevalence in low- and middle-income countries creating a large health care burden. Clinical management may require substantial resources but little consideration has been given to which treatments are appropriate for less advantaged countries. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: The aim of this review was to systematically appraise published data on the costs and effectiveness of PAD treatments used commonly in high-income countries, and for an international consensus panel to review that information and propose a hierarchy of treatments relevant to low- and middle-income countries...

INTRODUCTION: Venoactive drugs (VADs) are considered an important component of the medical (conservative) treatment of chronic venous disorders (CVDs). However, the efficacy of certain VADs on one or more individual leg symptoms may have not been extensively studied to justify a high level or grade of recommendation in guidelines on CVD. The aim of the present systematic review and meta-analysis was to study the effectiveness of VADs containing Ruscus across the spectrum of defined venous symptoms...
