OBJECTIVE: Pregnancy has significant effects on the lower extremity venous system. Increasing venous pressure and blood volume, in combination with reduced flow rates within the deep veins, predisposes pregnant women to both primary and secondary chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). This review article highlights the specific physiologic and hemodynamic changes that occur during pregnancy and examines the nonpharmacologic, pharmacologic, and invasive interventions that are appropriate for both prophylaxis and treatment of CVI and venous thromboembolism (VTE)...

Venous aneurysms are rare entities, with mesenteric venous aneurysms among the rarest reported. We present a case of a 66-year-old man with abdominal pain secondary to an enormous 7.8-cm inferior mesenteric vein aneurysm. In addition, he had evidence of other venous abnormalities, including bilateral leg chronic venous insufficiency and a right varicocele. This appears to be the only reported case of an isolated inferior mesenteric vein aneurysm. Adding to its significance, this aneurysm is among the largest of any mesenteric vein aneurysm reported...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) affects 25 million adults in the United States. Little emphasis has been placed on inflammatory changes associated with CVI. We hypothesize that in patients with early to mid-stage benign varicose vein disease, differences in circulating inflammatory mediators will be manifested in blood draining the involved area vs circulating blood in control subjects. METHODS: Patients undergoing either endovenous ablation or sclerotherapy for Clinical, Etiology, Anatomy, and Pathophysiology clinical class 3 to 5 disease underwent phlebotomy from regional veins at the time of the procedure...

BACKGROUND: Chronic lower extremity venous disease (LECVD) is twice as prevalent as coronary heart disease, and invasive therapies to treat LECVD accounted for an estimated $290 million in Medicare expenditures in 2015. Despite increasing use of these invasive therapies, their comparative effectiveness is unknown. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of treatments for patients (symptomatic and asymptomatic) with lower extremity varicosities and/or lower extremity chronic venous insufficiency/incompetence/reflux...

This study evaluated multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) scans performed on potential living donors for adult-to-adult liver transplantation (LDLT), with the aim of identifying significant findings that could be used to exclude potential transplantation donors. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 151 consecutive potential adult donors for LDLT from May 2007 to January 2015. Liver parenchyma steatosis, focal hepatic mass or intraabdominal malignancy, vascular variations, and donor liver volume were evaluated via MDCT...

OBJECTIVES: The traditional surgical approach to the treatment of the superficial venous insufficiency requires at least 12 h of post-operative monitoring and this often means the necessity of an overnight hospitalization. The introduction of new, less invasive techniques (i.e endovenous laser ablation) reduces the hospitalization stay in a Day Surgery setting. However, the increasing skills of the operators and the patient's selection, allows to propose endovenous laser ablation in an Outpatient setting...

BACKGROUND: Readmissions are a common complication after pancreaticoduodenectomy and are increasingly being used as a performance metric affecting quality assessment, public reporting, and reimbursement. This study aims to identify general and pancreatectomy-specific factors contributing to 30-day readmission after pancreaticoduodenectomy, and determine the additive value of incorporating pancreatectomy-specific factors into a large national dataset. METHODS: Prospective American College of Surgeons-National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (ACS-NSQIP) data were retrospectively analyzed for patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) between 2011 and 2015...

BACKGROUND: Morbidly obese patients are at increased risk to develop venous thromboembolism (VTE), especially after bariatric surgery. Adequate postoperative thrombosis prophylaxis is of utmost importance. It is assumed that morbidly obese patients need higher doses of low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) compared to normal-weight patients; however, current guidelines based on relative efficacy in obese populations are lacking. OBJECTIVES: First, we will evaluate the relationship between body weight descriptors and anti-Xa activity prospectively...

Pulmonary thrombo-embolism (PTE) is a common cause of death but is frequently undetected by clinicians in spite of advanced diagnostic techniques. The autopsy has traditionally been used to identify the rate of PTE in hospital patients, but the decline in autopsy rates - especially in hospitals - has led to insufficient recent data from which to comment with confidence on the true rate of death from latent PTE. Widespread prophylactic anticoagulation regimens against venous thrombosis may induce complacency amongst clinicians...

Iliac vein stenting has become more frequent with improved diagnostic capabilities of intra-vascular ultrasound (IVUS) for recognizing May-Thurner syndrome, chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and thrombus. In this manuscript, we discuss the reasons for initial stenting, with long-term outcomes and some of the associated pitfalls. The best techniques for re-intervention when iliac stents become occluded will also be discussed.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a major health problem worldwide. The risk of pulmonary embolism following DVT is well established, but the long-term vascular sequelae of DVT are often underappreciated, costly to manage, and can have extremely detrimental effects on quality of life. Treatment of DVT classically involves oral anticoagulation, which reduces the risk of pulmonary embolism but does not remove the clot. Anticoagulation therefore does little to prevent the venous damage and scarring that occurs following DVT, leaving the patient at risk for permanent venous insufficiency and development of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS)...

An important aspect of cell therapy in the field of cardiac disease is safe and effective delivery of cells. Commonly used delivery strategies such as intramyocardial injection and intracoronary infusion both present with advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, alternative delivery routes are explored, such as retrograde coronary venous infusion (RCVI). Our aim is to evaluate safety and efficiency of RCVI by providing a complete overview of preclinical and clinical studies applying RCVI in a broad range of disease types and experimental models...

Venous thromboembolic (VTE) disease, consisting of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Current prophylactic measures are insufficient to prevent all occurrence in part due to an incomplete understanding of the underlying pathophysiology. Mounting evidence describes interplay between activation of the innate immune system and thrombus development. Recent work has demonstrated that platelet release of HMGB1 leads to increased microvascular complications following injury...

In patients with deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) in the lower limbs, venous ulcer is the most debilitating and end-stage clinical expression of the post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). To date, risk factors for PTS-related ulcer in DVT patients have not been identified.We used the international observational RIETE registry to assess the evolution of PTS signs and symptoms during a 3-year follow-up period and to identify independent predictors of PTS ulcer at 1 year in patients with acute DVT.Among 1,866 eligible patients, cumulative rates of PTS ulcer at 1, 2 and 3 years were 2...

BACKGROUND: Although the endothelial dysfunction is considered to be implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) the endothelial status in patients with venous disorders is still not fully evaluated. Therefore the aim of the study was to measure the concentration of selected markers of endothelial dysfunction: von Willebrand factor (vWf), soluble P-selectin (sP-selectin), soluble thrombomodulin (sTM) and soluble VE-cadherin (sVE-cadherin) in CVI women who constitute the most numerous group of patients suffering from venous disease...
