Ovarian vein thrombosis (OVT) is a rare medical disorder most often diagnosed in the peripartum period and maybe associated with other risk factors for thrombosis. Rarely, OVT is considered idiopathic. It occurs in the right ovarian vein alone in two-thirds of patients. In this report, we present a case of idiopathic and bilateral OVT in a 35-year-old woman who presented with 2-day history of left flank pain. Duplex ultrasound imaging and computed tomography confirmed the diagnosis. Oral anticoagulation achieved a favorable outcome...

OBJECTIVE: Pelvic venous incompetence can cause symptomatic varicose veins in the perineum, buttock, and thigh. Presentation, symptom severity, and response to treatment of pelvic source varicose veins are not well defined. Currently available tools to measure the severity of lower extremity venous disease and its effects on quality of life may be inadequate to assess disease severity in these patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the histories, demographics, and clinical presentations of women with pelvic source varicose veins and to compare these data to a population of women with nonpelvic source varicose veins...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: It is well established that obesity is a strongly associated risk factor for post-operative deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Physical effects and pro-thrombotic, pro-inflammatory and hypofibrinolytic effects of severe obesity may predispose to idiopathic DVT (pre-operatively) because of which bariatric patients are routinely screened before surgery. The aim of this study was to audit the use of routine screening venous duplex ultrasound in morbidly obese patients before undergoing bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND: People with abdominal aortic aneurysm who receive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) need lifetime surveillance to detect potential endoleaks. Endoleak is defined as persistent blood flow within the aneurysm sac following EVAR. Computed tomography (CT) angiography is considered the reference standard for endoleak surveillance. Colour duplex ultrasound (CDUS) and contrast-enhanced CDUS (CE-CDUS) are less invasive but considered less accurate than CT. OBJECTIVES: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of colour duplex ultrasound (CDUS) and contrast-enhanced-colour duplex ultrasound (CE-CDUS) in terms of sensitivity and specificity for endoleak detection after endoluminal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR)...

Objective Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a condition associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). One mechanism that has been proposed is that the venous obstructions found in MS are due to a chronic persistent venulitis caused by the intra-cellular bacterial parasite, Chlamydophila pneumoniae (Cpn). The objective of the current study is to determine the effect of a combined antibiotic protocol (CAP) on the venous flow in MS patients as measured by a quantitative duplex ultrasound examination (QDUS)...

PURPOSE: Since the advent of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stents and the improved patency they confer for transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), the need to perform ultrasound surveillance has been debated. Prior reports have failed to separately evaluate patients who had TIPS placed for refractory ascites and variceal bleeding. The difference in morbidity from TIPS malfunction between these cohorts argues for distinction between the two. This retrospective review aims to determine whether Duplex ultrasound or return of symptoms more accurately predicts TIPS dysfunction...

18F-FDG-PET may be useful to diagnose complications of endocarditis in difficult cases. We report the case of a young patient who had endocarditis and a painful leg. FDG PET/CT showed hypermetabolism in the leg and duplex ultrasound suggested an inflammatory aneurysm at the site of the hypermetabolism. The combination of FDG-PET/CT and duplex ultrasound is useful to diagnose mycotic aneurysm in the setting of bacterial endocarditis.

We report one case of type 1 endoleak (EL) with an outflow via a lumbar artery following Nellix endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) in order to discuss the specific peculiarities and management of this complication. A 64-year-old man ( ASA 3) underwent Nellix EVAS for an asymptomatic infra-renal aortic aneurysm. The 6-month Duplex scanning ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging showed a type IA endoleak with an outflow via a lumbar artery (LA) combined with a stable aneurysmal sac size. The subsequent 9-month imaging controls showed no changes of the endoleak cavity but there was a slight enlargement in proximal neck size associated with the distal migration of both Nellix grafts...

INTRODUCTION: Deep wound infections in the groin region can result in an acute or life threatening condition. Especially when there is no suitable vein available because of many reasons (e.g. previous surgery, small vessel diameter). Synthetic prosthesis sometimes are not 'first-choice-technique' because of contamination or infection. It was ad hoc hypothesized in an acute setting that a segment of an occluded Superficial Femoral Artery (SFA) could be used as a conduit in combination with eversion technique, known from carotid surgery...

Lymphedema distichiasis syndrome (LDS) is a rare, autosomal dominant genetic condition, characterized by lower limb lymphedema and distichiasis. Other associated features that have been reported include varicose veins, cleft palate, congenital heart defects, and ptosis. We update a previously reported family with a pathogenic variant in FOXC2 (c.412-413insT) where five affected individuals from the youngest generation had congenital renal anomalies detected on prenatal ultrasound scan. These included four fetuses with hydronephrosis and one with bilateral renal agenesis...
