Through the generosity of Charles R. Millikan, D. Min., vice president for Spiritual Care and Values Integration, an annual award competition was established at Houston Methodist Hospital among the resident staff. To enter the writing competition, residents must submit a poem or essay of 1,000 words or less on the topic, "On Being a Doctor." A committee of seven was selected from Houston Methodist Hospital Education Institute to establish the judging criteria and select the winning entries. The following is the second-place winning entry for 2018; the third-place entry will be published in the next issue of this journal...

Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is the most common congenital abnormality of the thoracic systemic venous drainage; in fact, cardiology fellows in training are often quizzed on this when a dilated coronary sinus is noted on an echocardiogram. However, its association with an absent right superior vena cava (RSVC) and how to diagnose this combined condition is less commonly known. We present two cases of PLSVC with an absent RSVC, describe how to recognize and confirm this diagnosis, and discuss its clinical relevance...

Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) is a rare antemortem diagnosis that is commonly associated with hypercoagulable states such as advanced malignancies, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and autoimmune diseases such as antiphospholipid syndrome and systemic lupus erythematosus. We present a case of a previously healthy 42-year-old man who presented with small bowel infarction caused by embolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery and was subsequently diagnosed with NBTE. Despite thorough investigation, efforts to find an underlying cause failed to reveal any associated systemic illnesses...

REVIEW
Anthony J Comerota
Systemically delivered pharmacologic thrombolysis for acute deep vein thrombosis long ago gave way to catheter delivery of plasminogen activators within the clot. This simple concept resulted in markedly improved efficacy and safety. In an effort to accelerate thrombus dissolution or extraction, mechanical methods were developed, but the initial techniques left substantial residual thrombus that required subsequent catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT). It was soon observed that combined pharmacomechanical thrombolysis was more effective than either one alone...

Central vein thrombosis is defined as thrombosis of the major vessels draining either the upper or lower extremities. It presents most commonly in the upper limb, where it affects the subclavian veins and the superior vena cava; in the lower limb, it affects the common iliac veins and the inferior vena cava. These different anatomical segments pose unique challenges in both acute and chronic settings, and this article will summarize the current best practice treatment options.

There is a growing need for dedicated endovascular devices to treat pathologies affecting the venous system. However, because of a lack of research into venous diseases and treatments, the optimal design, material, and mechanical properties of venous stents remain unknown. Development of the ideal venous stent should be based on a thorough understanding of the underlying venous pathology. There are multiple venous diseases that differ from each other depending on their location (iliocaval, superior vena cava), mechanism (thrombotic versus nonthrombotic lesions), and chronicity...

REVIEW
Ponraj Chinnadurai, Jean Bismuth
Advanced imaging for intraoperative evaluation of venous pathologies has played an increasingly significant role in this era of evolving minimally invasive surgical and interventional therapies. The evolution of dedicated venous stents and other novel interventional devices has mandated the need for advanced imaging tools to optimize safe and accurate device deployment. Most venous interventions are typically performed using a combination of standard 2-dimensional (2D) fluoroscopy, digital-subtraction angiography, and intravascular ultrasound imaging techniques...

Ross G McFall, Tony Lu
Central venous occlusive disease is frequently observed in patients with end-stage renal disease. Venography remains the gold standard for diagnosis, but intravascular ultrasound is a potentially beneficial adjunct that may positively influence intervention.

Successful management of acute deep vein thrombosis and post-thrombotic syndrome depends on careful patient selection and detailed investigation of thrombus extent, composition, and anatomy. This article reviews the use of computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in the assessment of central deep veins of the pelvis and addresses new developments within the field. Despite drawbacks of each imaging modality, when contemplating deep venous reconstruction, cross-sectional imaging should be considered for preoperative planning and to compliment intraoperative imaging tools, including intravascular ultrasound and contrast venography...

Extensive research exists on arterial mechanical properties and how they change in disease conditions, but substantially less is known about venous mechanics in healthy and disease states. Although the mechanics of both vessel types are determined by the unique layered composition of the vessel wall, the precise distribution of the layers differs greatly between arteries and veins. Thus, vein mechanics must be analyzed and understood independently from those of arteries. This review discusses the compositional attributes that are unique to veins, how these attributes contribute to venous mechanics, and the alterations that occur to both composition and material properties during venous thrombosis and insufficiency...

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a common disease that carries serious ramifications for patients, including pulmonary embolism and post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). Although standard treatment for DVT is anticoagulation, this carries an added risk of bleeding and increased medication monitoring. Identifying those at risk for DVT and PTS can be difficult, and current research with murine models is helping to illuminate the biologic changes associated with these two disorders. Potential novel biomarkers for improving the diagnosis of DVT and PTS include ICAM-1, P-selectin, and cell-free DNA...

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is responsible for significant costs to society in the form of medical and surgical treatment and, importantly, unmeasurable lost work productivity due to pain and disability. Symptomatic chronic central vein obstruction, a cause of CVI, is potentially treatable using open surgical and endovascular techniques to restore vessel patency. Although upper extremity central vein obstruction often requires an open surgical procedure for durable relief, endovascular stents have proven remarkably useful for iliofemoral disease...
