The ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a serious but rarely fatal complication of medical interventions that seek to induce fertility; it is typically encountered in women who undergo controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, but there are very rare patients who have genetic defects who present with OHSS. In recent years, its pathogenesis has been elucidated; this knowledge will decrease the frequency of this syndrome. Clinical signs may include any or all of the following: rapid weight gain, ascites, oliguria, hemoconcentration, leukocytosis, along with intravascular hypovolemia, hyponatremia, and hyperkalemia...

INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is the most serious manifestation of thromboembolic disease. OBJECTIVE: To determine the most common risk and etiologic factors of pulmonary tromboembolism in patients treated in Intensive care unit of Clinic for Pulmonary Diseases and TB "Podhrastovi" in three-year- period from 2008. to 2010. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed patients with PTE treated in Intensive care unit of Clinic for Pulmonary Diseases and TB "Podhrastovi" in three-year period from 2008...

Tromboembolic complications are 2-4-fold more likely in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) than in healthy individuals; active IBD may increase the relative risk even 15-fold. Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism are the most common involvements, but also atypical forms occur. We describe such uncommon thrombotic manifestations in two IBD patients: one had mesenterial vein and the other cavernoid sinus thrombosis. The risk of thrombotic complications should be estimated individually, and prophylactic management with low molecular weight heparin should be considered in hospitalized IBD patients...

There is consistent evidence that the use of oral contraceptives and is associated with increased risk of deep vein thrombosis. The study objective was to assess age specific incidence of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in women 20 to 50 years of age associated with the use of oral contraceptives, and smoking habit. A case-control study of vein thrombosis was conducted in National Heart Hospital in Sofia. The study consists of studies for vascular events (peripheral vascular disease) during hormonal therapy...

Total hip replacement represents an operation with high risk of thromboembolic disease. An optimal strategy of thromboprophylaxis is very important. In our two groups of patients we compared two ways of prophylaxis both during hospitalization and after hospital discharge. 81 patients in the first group were treated with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) - Fraxiparine during the stay in hospital and with a combination of three drugs - Aspirin, Curantyl and Secatoxin during 3 months after operation. 85 patients in the second group were also treated with LMWH during the stay in hospital but LMWH was early changed for Warfarin...

UNLABELLED: Fusiform and dolichoectatic aneurysms are challenging lesions to treat with direct clipping. Treatment of these aneurysms often requires alternative surgical strategies, including extracranial-intracranial bypass, wrapping, or clip-wrap techniques. Nonetheless, these alternatives methods of treatment have been underused and frequently overlooked. OBJECTIVE: To report a series of nine cases of otherwise untreatable aneurysms managed using the clip-wrap technique and discuss its surgical nuances...

Aromatase inhibitors are now the first choice endocrine therapy in the metastatic setting for postmenopausal women.These endocrine agents also seem likely to soon become the standard adjuvant therapy for postmenopausal patients with hormone-responsive breast cancer, either alone or in sequence with tamoxifen. In the treatment with aromatase inhibitors, the incidence of some adverse effects such as endometrial cancer, stroke or pulmonary tromboembolism treatment associated with tamoxifen is reduced. Questions remain about the long-term side-effects and safety profile of aromatase inhibitors--monitoring and handling of bone loss associated with their application are essential and are being addressed in ongoing trials...

Respiratory pathology can be relatively frequent during pregnancy. One third of pregnant woman may experience worsening of their asthma condition. Pulmonary tromboembolism is 5 times more frequent in pregnancy. Bacterial, viral and fungal pneumonias are badly tolerated during pregnancy, provoking mother-foetal morbidity, respiratory insufficiency, low born-weight or prematurity. Non-treated tuberculosis may increase maternal mortality and preterm birth by 4 and 9 times respectively. Pregnancy is counter-indicated in women with cystic fibrosis and severe pulmonary function...

OBJECTIVE: to describe and analyze the levels, tendency, causes and preventability of maternal mortality occurred at hospitals of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) in the period 1991-2005, in order to identify possible strategies and activities to get a faster reduction of this problem. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 3553 maternal deaths registered in medical units of IMSS between 1991 and 2005. This period was divided in two: from 1991 to 1997 and from 1998 to 2005, for comparison purposes...

The case-report of a 57-year-old patient with the symptoms of massive pulmonary embolism is presented. The patient was admitted to the hospital in the cardiogenic shock, ventilated and with high dose of inotropic support. It was impossible to find out the exact data from personal history. The patient was operated on urgently. The chronic occlusion of the right pulmonary artery due to the chronic tromboembolic disease was found out. Thromboendarterectomy of the pulmonary artery was successfully performed. Three month after operation the patient is in excellent clinical condition almost without any functional limitation...

D-dimer measurement is commonly included in the diagnostic workup of patients with suspected acute symptomatic deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. As a haemostatic marker, it could be theoretically useful in other thromboembolic disorders, such as acute cerebrovascular events. In this review we summarize published literature on D-dimer testing in acute ischemic stroke and cerebral sinus and venous thrombosis (CSVT), discussing possible clinical diagnostic and therapeutical applications. In ischemic stroke, mounting evidence suggests a possible role of D-dimer in the acute diagnosis of ischemic stroke subtypes, especially in identifying tromboembolic and lacunar stroke...

AIM: The agreement in the interpretation of the scintigraphic images of pulmonary perfusion in the diagnosis of pulmonary tromboembolism (TEP) is not always the most adequate. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the degree of agreement by eight observers in the interpretation of these studies. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study population consisted of 180 studies with clinically suspected pulmonary embolism referred to our department for scintigraphic perfusion imaging from April 98 to September 99...

Carpentier's ring was inserted in the mitral annulus of 79 patients suffering from mitral valve disease. 49 other patients also underwent surgery on other cardiac valves and are not considered in the present study. The mean follow up time was 19.5 months. The total hospital and late mortality in the isolated ring series was 3.8%. Clinical and hemodynamic improvement was evident postoperatively. The preoperative functional class (NYHA) of the patients was: I, 11.39%; II, 45.5%; III, 34.1%; IV, 8.86% respectively...
