OBJECTIVE: The role of follow-up venous duplex ultrasound (DUS) after acute lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT) remains unclear, yet it is commonly performed. We aimed to clarify the role of follow-up DUS. Our primary objective was to determine the association between the presence of residual venous obstruction (RVO) on DUS and DVT recurrence or propagation (rDVT). Secondary objectives included finding risk factors associated with RVO and rDVT. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of patients diagnosed with DVT on DUS from January 1, 2011, to December 31, 2013, that received a follow-up DUS...

Venous complications of iliac artery aneurysms are rare. We report the case of bilateral iliac aneurysms that resulted in iliac vein outflow obstruction despite endovascular aneurysm repair. In our patient, bilateral iliac vein stenting resulted in symptom resolution.

PURPOSE: To retrospectively investigate the safety, efficacy, and complications associated with TrapEase inferior vena cava filters. METHODS: All patients who received a TrapEase filter at a single institution between April 2003 and January 2013 were identified, and outcomes were reviewed and analyzed. RESULTS: During the study period, 594 patients (278 women; mean age, 68.9 ± 13.6 years; range, 19.2-96.3 years) received a TrapEase filter...

OBJECTIVE: We previously reported 3-month and 12-month occlusion rates after treatment of clinically symptomatic saphenous vein reflux with either cyanoacrylate closure (CAC) using the VenaSeal Closure System (Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland) or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in a randomized, multicenter, clinical trial, VenaSeal Sapheon Closure System vs Radiofrequency Ablation for Incompetent Great Saphenous Veins (VeClose). Herein we report the 24-month follow-up results of the VeClose trial...

Aneurysms of the inferior vena cava (IVC) are uncommon. Symptomatic patients usually present with thrombosis and venous obstruction. Classification is based on location and the presence or absence of congenital IVC interruption. Treatment options include observation, open surgical resection, and endovascular modalities, of which coil embolization and stent graft placement have previously been described. We report the case of a patient with a 5.0-cm infrarenal IVC aneurysm and associated congenital stenosis who successfully underwent balloon angioplasty...

Retrievable inferior vena cava filters carry a risk of penetrating into adjacent structures, which may necessitate open retrieval. We report a unique case of a retrievable inferior vena cava filter penetrating into an overlying horseshoe kidney, leading to clinical hematuria. After repeated failed endovascular retrieval, an open approach with associated access challenges was required.

OBJECTIVE: Patency of the bypass vein after a Rex shunt is an important indicator of prognosis. However, there is no report about the change of caliber of the bypass vein after a Rex shunt. The aim of this study was to identify postoperative changes of the bypass vein and to assess the relationship with prognosis. METHODS: Between October 2008 and October 2016 in our center, 114 children were diagnosed with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction. The portal cavernoma-portal bypass with interposition of grafted portal vessels was performed in 31 children, the gastroportal shunt was performed in 54 children, and other Rex shunts were performed in another 29 children...

OBJECTIVE: Thermal vein ablation (VA) is the recommended treatment modality for superficial venous reflux, with a recommended positioning of the catheter at 2 to 3 cm from the junction of the deep venous system. In contrast, novel sealing technology for saphenous VA involves treatment starting at 3 to 5 cm distal to the deep junction. This study examines the effect of increasing catheter distance from the junction on the outcomes of VA using radiofrequency. METHODS: A retrospective single-center review of patients treated with VA was performed...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to review our experience in the diagnosis and surgical management of patients diagnosed with inferior vena cava leiomyomatosis (IVL). METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated all patients diagnosed with IVL between 1999 and 2015. Patient demographics, diagnostic imaging, operative techniques, and perioperative outcomes were reviewed. RESULTS: Over the study period, 16 patients with an IVL diagnosis were identified. In all patients, the diagnosis was made with ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess the midterm and long-term results of patients with auricular arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) treated by ethanol embolization. METHODS: Medical records of 35 patients (20 male, 15 female; age range, 10-59 years) with auricular AVMs between 2006 and 2016 were reviewed. The short-term results of 4 of the 35 patients were reported in 2009. They were included in this study with updated follow-up data. The data from the 31 new included patients have not been reported previously...

OBJECTIVE: The incidence of and risk factors for profunda femoris vein (PFV) thrombosis are poorly characterized. We prospectively identified patients with PFV deep venous thrombosis (DVT) to characterize the demographics and anatomic distribution of proximal DVT in patients with PFV DVT. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted of patients at a tertiary care university hospital with DVT diagnosed by venous duplex ultrasound scanning between June 2014 and June 2015...

OBJECTIVE: Placement of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters is a controversial focus of medical malpractice. Clinicians currently have little information to guide them regarding key issues and outcomes in litigation. In this retrospective legal case review, we analyzed the factors associated with malpractice actions involving IVC filters. METHODS: The legal databases LexisNexis and Westlaw were searched from 1967 to 2016 for all published legal cases in the United States involving placement of IVC filters...

OBJECTIVE: During the past few years, there has been a surge in the use of catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) for acute pulmonary embolism (PE), in the form of either standard CDT or ultrasound-assisted CDT (usCDT). This is a systematic review and meta-analysis of all published series on contemporary CDT for acute PE seeking to determine their clinical efficacy, stratifying by PE severity and CDT modality. METHODS: A comprehensive MEDLINE and Embase search was performed to identify studies that reported outcomes of CDT for acute PE published from 2009 to July 2017...

The VenaTech LGM (B. Braun, Melsungen, Germany) inferior vena cava (IVC) filter was designed as a permanent IVC filter to prevent clot migration and pulmonary embolism. This filter has been discontinued, but thousands remain implanted within patients who incur the added long-term risks of an indwelling IVC filter. We present a case of successful removal of a permanent VenaTech LGM IVC filter using a novel technique in a patient in whom filter placement was no longer indicated. The conical portion of the filter was removed intact, and the vertical struts were intentionally left embedded extravascularly within the caval wall...

BACKGROUND: It has been shown that venous valves have pairing arrangements with specific relative orientation and spacing that contribute to helical flows. The studies to date have not quantified the hemodynamic impact of helical flow formation. A computational model allows various valve orientations and spacings to be studied to better understand the hemodynamic effect of valve pairing. METHODS: Simulations were performed for paired valves at physiologically relevant spacing and orientations to study the flow features and hemodynamics associated with valve pairing configurations...
