BACKGROUND: The aim of this systematic review was to provide comprehensive data on the prevalence of variations of the saphenofemoral junction (SFJ) to prevent misidentification of the SFJ or the incomplete ligation of the tributaries of the great saphenous vein. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted using the PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases through September 14, 2017. To be included in the meta-analysis, a study had to report prevalence data on the morphology of the SFJ or the presence of venous tributaries...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to describe the relative contributions of power output, linear endovenous energy density (LEED), and pullback rate (PBR) in determining successful long-term occlusion of the truncal saphenous veins after endovenous laser ablation (EVLA). METHODS: A consecutive 203 patients (336 ablated veins) with reflux of the great saphenous vein or small saphenous vein (Clinical, Etiology, Anatomy, and Pathophysiology class C2-C6) defined by duplex ultrasound and clinical criteria were treated with 1470-nm EVLA at a power of 6 to 12 W...

Mathew Wooster, Blake Fernandez, Kelli L Summers, Karl A Illig
BACKGROUND: Subclavian vein stenosis or occlusion at the thoracic outlet is a problem associated with certain anatomic and environmental stresses (venous thoracic outlet syndrome [VTOS]), the presence of central venous catheters, and the high flows associated with arteriovenous (AV) access in the limb. We describe our experience with open and endovascular techniques for restoring patency in highly symptomatic patients. METHODS: A prospectively collected database of patients was queried for patients treated for central venous obstructive disease in the setting of highly symptomatic VTOS and ipsilateral AV access from October 2011 to August 2016...

BACKGROUND: Practice patterns associated with inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement have seen considerable variation in the last decade. We used a statewide administrative database to examine trends in IVC filter placement and retrieval in the general population. METHODS: We reviewed Florida state inpatient and ambulatory surgery databases from 2004 to 2014. International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision diagnosis and procedure codes and Current Procedural Terminology codes were searched for patients undergoing inpatient or outpatient IVC filter placement, and each patient was longitudinally tracked to the time of inpatient or outpatient filter retrieval...

Yushi Suzuki, Hisashi Sakuma, Shun Yamazaki
OBJECTIVE: Lymphaticovenous anastomosis (LVA) is one of the surgical treatments for lymphedema. Lymphaticovenous side-to-end anastomosis (LVSEA) and lymphaticovenous end-to-end anastomosis (LVEEA) are the most commonly used procedures; however, only a few reports have evaluated direct anastomosis. We used indocyanine green fluorescence lymphography to evaluate and to compare both techniques. METHODS: Eighteen patients (67 anastomoses) with secondary upper extremity lymphedema were evaluated 6 months postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: No clear data exist on the treatment patterns in patients with chronic venous disease. This study was designed to determine how such patients were treated in our center. METHODS: Consecutive patients presenting for a vein consultation at our center were collected during a 9-month period, allotting for at least 6 months of follow-up. All patients had a detailed history and physical examination by experienced vascular surgeons and a complete venous ultrasound evaluation by registered vascular technologists having experience in venous imaging...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the risk of postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with acute iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (IFDVT) who underwent percutaneous pharmacomechanical thrombectomy (PMT) using AngioJet (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, Mass) or catheter-directed thrombolysis. METHODS: Electronic medical records of patients with acute IFDVT from January 2014 to September 2017 were reviewed. Those who received PMT with AngioJet (AJ-PMT group) or catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT group) were included in this study...

OBJECTIVE: With increasing use of iliocaval stenting, complications have become more noticeable. Stent occlusion is one such outcome that has not been studied in detail. Characteristics of stent occlusion in addition to outcomes after recanalization are presented. METHODS: An analysis of 3468 initial iliocaval stents placed during an 18-year period from 1997 to 2015 was performed. A total of 102 stent occlusions were identified, amounting to a 3% stent occlusion rate...

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a form of chronic vasculitis that mainly affects the aorta and its main branches, most commonly in young female patients. The pathogenesis of the disease remains unclear, and the clinical manifestations are nonspecific. Therefore, misdiagnosis of the disease is considered to be common. Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, TA affecting veins has not been reported. Here we report a case of an adolescent with TA affecting the femoral vein as diagnosed by ultrasound.

Catheter-directed thrombolysis for iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT) aims to reduce acute leg symptoms and to prevent the post-thrombotic syndrome. There are no data from controlled trials in pregnant patients. Reports of thrombolysis for treatment of DVT during pregnancy are scarce. Pregnancy is considered a relative contraindication to thrombolytic therapy because of the risk of bleeding and concerns about the effects of radiation exposure on the fetus. We report on a catheter-directed thrombolysis procedure without radiation and contrast medium exposure in a first-trimester pregnant patient with massive iliofemoral DVT and free-floating thrombus extending to the suprarenal inferior vena cava...

OBJECTIVE: Therapies for Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) can be divided into three main categories: medical, endovascular, and surgical. Surgery is applicable to the disease when other therapeutic options have failed. We introduce a surgical method of recanalization through exposure of the entire hepatic inferior vena cava (IVC) and hepatic vein (HV) outflow tract for BCS and investigate the long-term outcomes. METHODS: From July 2002 to December 2015 in our center, 83 consecutive symptomatic BCS patients with failure of endovascular therapy were treated by radical surgical recanalization...

OBJECTIVE: In this study, the diagnosis and treatment of patients with femoral vein compression from a synovial cyst of the hip joint were investigated. METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted to review hospital records from March 2010 to July 2017 of patients with femoral vein compression from a synovial cyst of the hip joint. The diagnostic procedure, duplex ultrasound results, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were recorded. The method and treatment outcomes were also documented...

In daily phlebology practice, duplex ultrasound may sometimes reveal unusual pathways of reflux. A 46-year-old woman presented with heaviness and pain at the medial side of the left thigh after exercise. A tortuous intramuscular course of a large refluxing vein was seen in the sartorius muscle in connection with a femoral vein perforator cranially and the below-knee great saphenous vein distally. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed these findings. Treatment consisted of a combination of foam sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, and phlebectomies...

REVIEW
Wenda Wang, Rui Sun, Yuexin Chen, Changwei Liu
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this review was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) with or without catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) in the treatment of lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT). METHODS: We searched PubMed for clinical trials and prospective or retrospective case series (comparative or single-arm studies) that focused on PMT ± CDT in the treatment of DVT, published before March 2, 2017. We meta-analyzed perioperative outcomes and complications and long-term outcomes of this procedure...

REVIEW
John A Harlock, Fadi Elias, Mohammad Qadura, Luc Dubois
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to compare the nontumescent-based endovenous therapies with the standard tumescent-based endovenous therapies in regard to clinical effectiveness and procedural outcomes in patients with saphenofemoral incompetence and varicose veins. METHODS: The following databases were searched for studies that were randomized or quasi-randomized trials comparing nontumescent-based endovenous procedures with those requiring tumescence: Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (1950-January 2017), MEDLINE (1946-January 2017), and Embase (1950-January 2017)...
