Venous outflow obstruction

Michael K W Lichtenberg, Houman Jalaie
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is associated with a high cost burden for health care systems because of secondary cost intensive complications like pulmonary embolism and especially the post thrombotic syndrome (PTS). The current standard therapy of anticoagulation for DVT therapy has not changed through the years leaving patients especially with iliofemoral vein thrombus on a high-risk situation for developing PTS. Current study situation for endovascular treatment of iliofemoral DVT treatment gives a rationale for active thrombus removal using catheter directed therapy (CDT) or pharmacomechanical thrombectomy (PMT) which improves valvular vein function and luminal patency reducing the potential complication of PTS...

PURPOSE: The classic symptoms and signs of carotid cavernous sinus fistula or cavernous sinus dural arteriovenous fistula (AVF) consist of eye redness, exophthalmos, and gaze abnormality. The angiography findings typically consist of arteriovenous shunt at cavernous sinus with ophthalmic venous drainage with or without cortical venous reflux. In rare circumstances, the shunts are localized outside the cavernous sinus, but mimic symptoms and radiography of the cavernous shunt. We would like to present the other locations of the arteriovenous shunt, which mimic the clinical presentation of carotid cavernous fistulae, and analyze venous drainages...

The morbidity and mortality associated with preeclampsia is staggering. The physiology of the Page kidney, a condition in which increased intrarenal pressure causes hypertension, appears to provide a unifying framework to explain the complex pathophysiology. Page kidney hypertension is renin-mediated acutely and ischemia-mediated chronically. Renal venous outflow obstruction also causes a Page kidney phenomenon, providing a hypothesis for the increased vulnerability of a subset of women who have what we are hypothesizing is a "renal compartment syndrome" due to inadequate ipsilateral collateral renal venous circulation consistent with well-known variation in normal venous anatomy...

Non-CE MRA techniques (true steady-state free-precession, SSFP) have been used effectively for the selective visualization of the portal venous system and inferior vena cava. Budd-Chiari Syndrome (BCS) encompasses a number of conditions that cause the obstruction of the hepatic outflow tract from the small hepatic veins to the junction of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and right atrium. The purpose of this study was to diagnose BCS with IVC obstruction using respiratory triggered three-dimensional (3D) true SSFP with T-SLIP and compare to digital subtraction angiography (DSA)...

BACKGROUND: Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disease resulting from obstruction of the hepatic venous outflow tract that typically presents with abdominal pain, jaundice and ascites without frank liver failure. However, BCS may also evolve more rapidly to acute liver failure (ALF-BCS). AIMS: To describe the clinical features, treatment and outcomes of ALF due to BCS and compare our results with those in the published literature. METHODS: Twenty of the 2,300 patients enrolled in the Acute Liver Failure Study Group (ALFSG) registry since 1998, presented with a clinical diagnosis of BCS...

BACKGROUND: Hepatic venous outflow tract obstruction (HVOTO) and extrahepatic portal venous obstruction (EHPVO) are important causes of portal hypertension and related complications in India. Both these conditions result from splanchnic venous thrombosis. In recent years, a V617F somatic mutation in Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) gene which is highly specific for myeloproliferative disorders has been detected in 40 % to 50 % and 30 % to 35 % of Western patients with HVOTO and EHPVO, respectively...

The sinusoidal obstructive syndrome (SOS) is a complication that usually follows hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. It is also known as veno-occlusive disease, which is a rare complication of living donor liver transplantation (LDLT). Herein, we reported a 34 year-old female patient presenting SOS after LDLT. Its underlying cause was presumed to be associated with liver abscess and subsequent inferior vena cava stenosis. SOS led to graft failure, thus requiring retransplantation with a deceased donor liver graft...

: Intracranial pressure (ICP) is the pressure inside the bony calvarium and can be affected by a variety of processes, such as intracranial masses and edema, obstruction or leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, and obstruction of venous outflow. This review focuses on the imaging of 2 important but less well understood ICP disorders: idiopathic intracranial hypertension and spontaneous intracranial hypotension. Both of these ICP disorders have salient imaging findings that are important to recognize to help prevent their misdiagnosis from other common neurological disorders...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare disorder caused by hepatic venous outflow obstruction with a wide spectrum of etiologies. Clinical manifestations are so heterogeneous that the diagnosis should be considered in any patients with acute or chronic liver disease. Therapeutic modalities for BCS have improved dramatically during the last few years. The concept of a step-wise treatment strategy has been established, including anticoagulation, thrombolysis, percutaneous recanalization, transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt, surgery and liver transplantation...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: A comprehensive parameter model was developed to investigate correlations between cerebral hemodynamics and alterations in the extracranial venous circulation due to posture changes and/or extracranial venous obstruction (stenosis). The purpose of this work was to validate the simulation results by using MR imaging and echo-color Doppler experimental blood flow data in humans. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To validate the model outcomes, we used supine average arterial and venous extracerebral blood flow, obtained by using phase-contrast MR imaging from 49 individuals with stenosis in the acquisition plane at the level of the disc between the second and third vertebrae of the left internal jugular vein, 20 with stenosis in the acquisition plane at the level of the disc between the fifth and sixth vertebrae of the right internal jugular vein, and 38 healthy controls without stenosis...

Hepatic venous outflow obstruction (HVOO) is a rare complication after liver transplantation (LT) associated with significant morbidity and reduced graft survival. Endovascular intervention has become the first-line treatment for HVOO, but data on long-term outcomes are lacking. We have analysed outcomes after endovascular intervention for HVOO in 905 consecutive patients who received 965 full-size LT at our unit from January 2007 to June 2014. There were 27 (3%) patients who underwent hepatic venogram for suspected HVOO, with persistent ascites being the most common symptom triggering the investigation (n = 19, 70%)...

OBJECTIVE: Air plethysmography (APG) is a functional, noninvasive test that can assess volumetric changes in the lower limb and might therefore be used as a diagnostic tool in chronic deep venous disease. However, use of APG in chronic deep venous obstructive disease remains debatable. This study assessed the clinical value of APG in identifying chronic deep venous obstruction. METHODS: All patients referred to our tertiary, outpatient clinic between January 2011 and August 2013 with chronic venous complaints and suspected outflow obstruction underwent an outflow fraction (OF), ejection fraction (EF), and residual volume fraction (RVF) test using APG...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is caused by an obstruction in the hepatic venous outflow tract at various levels from small hepatic veins to the inferior vena cava (IVC) due to thrombosis or fibrous sequelae. This rare disease mainly affects young adults. Risk factors have been identified and patients often have multiple risk factors. Myeloproliferative diseases of atypical presentation account for nearly 50% of patients in Europe and North America countries. Multistep management is required for such patients. Interventional revascularization and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt procedure are indicated after initial anticoagulation therapy, whereas IVC plasty using a patch graft is indicated for obstruction of the IVC...

Budd- Chiari syndrome is caused by obstruction of hepatic venous outflow. There are numerous causes for Budd-Chiari syndrome. One of the causes is systemic lupus erythematosus due to antiphospholipid antibodies. Only few cases have reported Budd-Chiari syndrome as an initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This is a case report of Budd-Chiari syndrome due to SLE.
