Purpose Catheter-tip associated thrombosis is not uncommon in patients with implantable central venous ports; however, the prevalence and clinical impact of this complication on patient management is unclear. This study aims to identify risk factors for thrombus formation in a large population receiving serial echocardiograms (echo) following port placement. Methods A total of 396 female breast cancer patients underwent internal jugular vein chest port placement between 2007 and 2013 and received echo studies every third month...

Bezold's abscess is a very rare extracranial complication of acute mastoiditis. Lateral sinus thrombosis is another intracranial complication of acute mastoiditis that can occur, but there are only few reports of concomitant ispilateral Bezold's abscess and lateral sinus thrombosis with favorable outcome. We diagnosed and treated successfully a 14-year-old girl suffering from Streptococcus pneumoniae acute mastoiditis complicated with Bezold's abscess and lateral sinus thrombosis. Surgical treatment included myringotomy, cortical mastoidectomy, and Bezold's abscess incision and drainage...

The AvalonElite double lumen cannula (DLC) provides total cavopulmonary assist (CPA) in failing Fontan sheep, but recirculation limits reliability. To improve CPA performance, a two-valve extracardiac conduit (ECC) was used to bracket infusion blood toward pulmonary artery (PA). A total cavopulmonary connection with failing Fontan circulation adult sheep model was created with valved ECC (n = 6). The valved ECC was connected to superior/inferior venae cavae (SVC/IVC) and right PA. The AvalonElite DLC was inserted from right jugular vein with infusion opening between the ECC valves...

C Cleff, M Boensch, F Eifinger, J Hinkelbein
BACKGROUND: Correct positioning of a central venous catheter (CVC) tip in pediatric patients is very important. Malpositioning may lead to direct complications, such as arrhythmia and increase the risk of thrombosis, infections, valve failures or pericardial tamponade. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review was to identify and summarize published formulae for the correct positioning of the CVC tip in children and to discuss the benefits of these formulae for the daily routine...

Small caliber synthetic vascular grafts used for dialysis access sites have high failure rates due to neointima formation and thrombosis. Seeding synthetic grafts with endothelial cells (ECs) provides a biocompatible surface that may prevent graft failure. We tested the use of ePTFE grafts seeded with autologous ECs expressing fibulin-5 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), as a dialysis access site in a porcine model. We connected the carotid arteries and jugular veins of 12 miniature pigs using 7-mm ePTFE grafts; five grafts were seeded with autologous venous ECs modified to express fibulin-5 and VEGF, and seven unseeded grafts were implanted at the same location and served as controls...

Typical symptoms of cardiac tamponade are jugular venous distension, pulsus paradoxus, hypotension, and rest dyspnea. However, these clinical symptoms can be masked in patients with ventricular assist device and even more in patients supported with a biventricular-HeartWare ventricular assist device. Hereby, we report the case of a 30-year-old man supported with a biventricular-HeartWare ventricular assist device, who underwent a computed tomography scan due to suspect of ventricular assist device thrombosis...

INTRODUCTION: Known thrombolytic agents either break peptide bonds in the fibrin molecule or act as plasminogen activators, which also results in peptide bond cleavage. In thrombi, fibrin molecules are known to be cross-linked by isopeptide bonds, the formation of which is mediated by factor XIIIa. In this work, we studied the dissolution of thrombi via isopeptide bond cleavage using a recombinant destabilase. Destabilase is an enzyme secreted from the medicinal leech salivary gland. This enzyme exhibits muramidase (lysozyme) activity, in addition to endo-ε-(γ-Glu)-Lys-isopeptidase activity, which is responsible for isopeptide bond cleavage...

Microvascular free tissue transfer is one of the most common techniques of reconstruction for complex head and neck surgical defects. Generally, venous thrombosis is more likely to occur than arterial thrombosis in vascular anastomosis. Thus, recipient veins must be chosen carefully. Although the internal jugular vein is preferred as a recipient vein by many microsurgeons, internal jugular vein thrombosis is a potential complication, as shown in our report. Therefore, we consider that the external jugular vein still is an option as a recipient for venous anastomosis and that it is better to perform multiple vein anastomoses with 2 different venous systems, such as the internal and external jugular systems, than anastomoses within the same venous system...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to analyze characteristics of patients with bilateral internal jugular vein thrombosis in our department during a 1-year period. Internal jugular vein thrombosis refers to an intraluminal thrombus occurring anywhere from the intracranial internal jugular vein to the junction of the internal jugular vein and the subclavian vein, which form the brachiocephalic vein. It can occur spontaneously or as a complication of head and neck infections, surgery, central venous lines, local malignancy, polycytemia, hyperhomocysteinemia, neck massage, or intravenous drug abuse...

Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is one of the most common thoracic venous anomaly and rarely noticed, because it is asymptomatic. However, for nephrologists, it is frequent enough to be encountered while placing hemodialysis catheters through the jugular vein. We report the case of 66-year-old patient with PLSVC presenting intrinsic thrombosis formation 4 h after dialysis catheter placed. Dialysis catheter was placed in the left internal jugular vein without resistance and any complication. PLSVC was detected after dialysis catheter insertion...

Superior vena cava (SVC) stenosis or thrombosis is a well-known complication of central venous catheterization for endocavitary treatments, hemodialysis, or chemotherapy. In cancer patients, these SVC lesions are often symptomatic due to intimal damage and chemotherapy toxicity. We report our experience with six patients treated between 2007 and 2012 via an endovascular approach (n=5) or a direct surgical approach (n=1). All patients had SVC syndrome with facial edema, headache and upper limb edema. In three cases, the catheter was in place when the clinical symptoms occurred...

The purpose of this case report and discussion is to heighten the awareness of Lemierres syndrome (postanginal sepsis).  Affected patients present in various fields of medicine and an increased incidence of "the forgotten disease" may be expected. Fusobacterium necrophorum is the most common pathogen. The clinical course includes a primary head or neck infection with thrombosis of the internal jugular vein with subsequent septic pulmonary embolization. The syndrome bears considerable morbidity and even mortality...

An 85-year-old man presented with an acute asymptomatic lateral neck mass in the context of deep tissue neck massages during the past year. He was referred to vascular surgery after an ultrasound examination of the neck revealed a thrombus in the external jugular vein. His past medical history and comorbidities were noncontributory. A multidisciplinary team of vascular surgeons and hematologists did not recommend any anticoagulation, given that the patient did not have any risk factors for thrombosis as well as normal D-dimer levels...
