We describe a case of intraoperative cardiac trombosis during orthotopic liver transplant surgery that resulted in intraoperative death. By using transesophageal echocardiography, the cause of the descompensation of the patient could be determined and the mechanism of trombus migration from thrombi from the venous circulation to the left heart was accurately observed.

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is a heterogeneous clinical and biochemical entity. We present the case of a young male with history of venous thromboembolism. This time he presents because of chest ischemic pain associated with ST segment elevation. He was taken to the cath lab to perform a primary percutaneous coronary intervention and a total occlusion of the left anterior descending artery was noted. Successful thrombus aspiration was performed. No stent was deployed. He was taken to the cath lab for a second look angiography and no atherosclerotic lesions were observed, which was confirmed by intravascular ultrasound...

Myeloproliferative neoplasms are chronic disorders of clonal hematopoietic stem cells, characterized by an overproduction of functional granulocytes, red blood cells and / or platelets, and one of the major complications is the occurrence of venous and arterial thrombotic problems caused by increased platelet aggregation and thrombin generation. In this study 11 cases of primary myelofibrosis (PM) were evaluated and 2 debuted with splanchnic venous thrombosis (SVT); so after seeing the results of this study and of world literature, it is suggested that in patients with SVT, diagnostic methods for PM like the JAK2V617F mutation should be included...

Liver abscess is a rare complication of sigmoid diverticulitis and must be considered within the differential diagnosis. We report a case of a male patient, age 42, admitted to our hospital with chief complaints of a dull pain in upper right abdominal quadrant, fever, weakness, diarrhoea and weight loss of approximately 3 weeks duration. Physical examination on initial work-up revealed tenderness on palpation in upper right abdomen, and left iliac fosa and a 39 degrees C fever. Biochemistry showed marked inflammatory syndrome, leukocitosis, increased level of platelets, altered liver function...

Ovarian vein trombosis (OVT) is a pathologic entity classically considered as a postpartum complication and only rarely associated with other diseases. Due to its vague symptoms, it is usually underdiagnosed. However its consequences can be fatal. We report a case of an incidental finding of ovarian thrombosis in an asymptomatic 45-year-old woman who underwent surgery due to the ultrasonographic finding of a para-ovarian cyst.

Primary malignant lymphoma involving the ovaries is extremely rare. We present a unique case of a primary Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of both ovaries, preceded by an internal jugular vein trombosis (IJVT) as paraneoplastic syndrome. Currently, 36 months after surgical treatment of this FIGO Stage Ib, Ann Arbor Stage 2E NHL, the patient is clinically free of disease. Based on this case and a review of the literature it is concluded that paraneoplastic syndromes like spontaneous IJVT should prompt the clinician to make a thorough diagnostic work-up in search of an underlying malignancy, including the female genital tract...

BACKGROUND: In hemodialysis patients the most common cause of vascular access failure is neointimal hyperplasia of vascular smooth muscle cells at the venous anastomosis of arteriovenous fistulas. CASE REPORT: We presented a 76-year old patient who had developed fistula thrombosis without the presence of known risk factors the eighth day after the initial function. A histopathological finding pointed to a significant rate of neointimal proliferation, as an initial reasons for the fistula stenosis and trombosis...

Most ophthalmologic disorders secondary to hypercoagulabe state are due to the confluence of congenital and adquired factors. A systematic workup is mandatory. Most of congenital coagulation disorders cause venous trombosis and are inherited autosomal dominantly. In order of frequency these are factor V Leiden mutation (activated protein C resistance), G20210A mutation of the prothrombin gen and protein C, protein S, and antithrombin III deficiencies. Sickle cell anemia can determine arerial and venous thrombosis...

Postoperative venous thromboembolic disease (VTED) affects approximately one in four general surgery patients who do not receive preventive measures. In addition to the risk of pulmonary embolism, which is often fatal, patients with VTED may develop long-term complications such as post-thrombotic syndrome or chronic pulmonary hypertension. In addition, postoperative VTED is usually asymptomatic or produces clinical manifestations that are attributed to other processes and consequently this complication is often unnoticed by the surgeon who performed the procedure...

Despite preventive efforts, venous thromboembolic disease (VTED) is still a major problem for surgeons due to its frequency and the morbidity, mortality and enormous resource consumption caused by this entity. However, the most important feature of VTED is that it is one of the most easily preventable complications and causes of death. To take appropriate prophylactic decisions (indication, method, initiation, duration, etc.), familiarity with the epidemiology of VTED in general surgery and some of its most significant populations (oncologic, laparoscopic, bariatric, ambulatory and short-stay) is essential...

We report two cases of intracraneal brain haemorrhage secondary to developmental venous anomaly trombosis recently treated at our Department. First patient was a 28-year old woman on oral contraceptive treatment for a month who was referred to our Department with sudden-onset conscious level deterioration after presenting 24 hours previously with headache, vomits and hemiparesis. Computed Tomography revealed a predominant hypodense area containing hyperdense foci causing mild mass effect and midline-shift in keeping with a haemorrhagic infarction occupying almost completely the right frontal lobe...

The results of clinical and ultrasound diagnostics of acute venous lower limbs thrombosis in 206 patients are analyzed. The patients were divided in two groups; those in the first group (n=96) had a diagnosed pulmonary embolism, patients of the second (n=110) had no signs of it. 37 (18%) patients had an asymptomatic course of venous thrombosis, 25 (68%) of those were diagnosed with pulmonary embolism. 154 (74%) patients had floating thrombs, which resulted in pulmonary embolism in 53%. Clinical and ultrasound criteria of embologenic venous trombosis are developed...

Complete aortic thrombosis is rare in neonates. Because it carries high morbidity and mortality, this entity requires aggressive and early treatment. This report describes an 8-day-old healthy and exclusively breast-fed infant, without specific coagulopathy, who developed complete aortic and cerebral venous thrombosis, which was attributed to inadequate breast-feeding and severe hypernatremic dehydration. Early systemic anticoagulation and thrombolytic therapy allowed complete resolution of the problem.

INTRODUCTION: Etiology of thrombosis in malignant diseases is multifactorial, and mechanisms that lead to thrombosis include release of the procoagulants from tumor cells (PC), factor related to bed rest, infections, as well as oncological therapy --chemotherapy, hormones, radiotherapy and surgical treatment. Thrombocytosis has frequently been found to be associated with various malignancies. CASE REPORT: 53 years old female patient hospitalised because of hypopharingeal cancer with metastasis in the left neck...

Mesenteric venous thrombosis is extremely rare surgical pathology during pregnancy and frequently is associated with hemoglobinopathies beta-thalassemia, congenital defects of the coagulation and antiphospholipide syndrome. It has nontypical clinical appearance, which hardens the timely diagnosis and the adequate surgical treatment. We present a case of a 22 year-old girl with hemozygote form of beta thalassemia, pregnant in ml II, with mesenteric venose thrombosis. The diagnosis was made on the 24th hour from the beginning of the disease...

Trombosis of the vascular access is the most frecuent complication among patients with chronic renal disease. From 1995 on we performed the percutaneous recanalization of the access and considered the procedure as the best option. We analized the results in the two groups of patients treated at different periods and emphasized the importance of the early diagnosis of the thrombosis in the last group. The importance of the information given by the radiologist to the surgeon pre and postoperatively is also stressed...

AIM: Venous microanastomoses are more difficult to carry out in comparison with the arterial ones, because of the characteristics of the vascular wall. The suture with loose stitches is the usual surgical technique, but it has 2 disadvantages: a long time of execution and the presence of foreign material in the anastomosis. To avoid these complications, we an extraluminal silicone cuff has been used. METHODS: We performed 70 microanastomoses on the internal jugular vein of Sprague-Dawley rats with these 2 techniques, estimating the immediate and late permeability and postoperative complications...

OBJECTIVES: The Heidelberg classification of renal tumours identifies five histotypes of renal cancer, underlining for two of them (conventional and papillary renal cancers) a strict relation between the morphological aspect and the complement of alterations evidenced by the cytogenetic analysis of the neoplastic karyotype. Due to its low incidence, the collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) has not yet been characterized from a cytogenetic point of view. This study analyses the clinical, morphologic and cytogenetic features of the CDC observed and treated in our department...
