BACKGROUND: Varices and venous insufficiency are common and serious health problems in the general population which affect quality of life. Endothermal treatment of the great saphenous vein has become the first line of treatment for superficial venous reflux, and the endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) method has been widely accepted all over the world. In this method, ablation is provided by a laser fiber inserted into the lumen of the vein. Initially, the fibers were 810 nm, but today the fibers are usually 940, 980, or 1470 nm...

BACKGROUND: Femoral venous access for catheter introduction represents the cornerstone of electrophysiology (EP) procedures. Limited data are available regarding post-procedure venous thromboembolism. The aim of this systematic review is to determine the incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolus (PE) associated with femoral vein catheterization during EP procedures. METHODS: An electronic search was conducted for studies documenting the incidence of DVT and PE after EP procedures...

PURPOSE: To evaluate efficacy and safety of a novel device that combines an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter and central venous catheter (CVC) for prevention of pulmonary embolism (PE) in critically ill patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a multicenter, prospective, single-arm clinical trial, the device was inserted at the bedside without fluoroscopy and subsequently retrieved before transfer from the intensive care unit (ICU). The primary efficacy endpoint was freedom from clinically significant PE or fatal PE 72 hours after device removal or discharge, whichever occurred first...

The efficacy and safety or rivaroxaban versus enoxaparin/vitamin K antagonist for treatment and prevention recurrence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) was demonstrated in the randomised EINSTEIN trials. We assessed the effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban versus warfarin in VTE patients managed in routine practice. Using US MarketScan claims from 1/2012-6/2015, we included adults with a primary diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) during a hospitalisation/emergency department visit, newly-initiated on rivaroxaban or warfarin within 30-days after the VTE and with ≥180-days of continuous medical/prescription benefits prior to the VTE (baseline)...

BACKGROUND: There is no consistent conclusion regarding the efficacy and safety of the intravenous administration of tranexamic acid (TXA) for reducing blood loss in revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We performed a meta-analysis of comparative trials to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TXA in revision TKA. METHODS: We conducted a search of PubMed, EMBASE, The Cochrane Library and Web of Science for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and non-RCTs. Two authors selected the studies, extracted the data, and assessed the risk of bias independently...

INTRODUCTION: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and its associated complication, pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) remains a challenge for orthopedic surgeons. There are wide ranges of predisposing factors which are both patient specific as well as procedure associated, responsible for DVT. PTE is a well-known fatal complication of DVT which may be life-threatening. Medical management and early mobilization are necessary for the management of DVT. Fatal PTE can be prevented by implantation of inferior vena cava (IVC) filter in at risk patients...

OBJECTIVE: Provoked deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is precipitated by a specific event. This paper compares the characteristics of provoked DVT in patients with transient risk (TR) factors and patients with continuous risk (CR) factors. METHODS: A retrospective review of records of all consecutive patients diagnosed with DVT between January 2013 and August 2014 was performed. Patients with provoked DVT were included in the TR group if the provoking event resolved in 2 weeks and they did not have ongoing risk of thrombosis...

PURPOSE: To compare the treatment outcomes in patients with acute proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and iliofemoral stenosis who underwent either direct stenting after AngioJet rheolytic thrombectomy or staged stenting after AngioJet thrombectomy plus catheter-directed thrombolysis with urokinase. METHODS: From June 2014 to February 2016, 91 DVT patients underwent 2 treatments for duplex-verified iliofemoral stenosis: direct stenting (n = 46; mean age 54.8 years; 32 men) or staged stenting (n = 45; mean age 56...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of folic acid combined with vitamin B12 on deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients with homocysteine cerebral infarction. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 90 patients with homocysteine cerebral infarction with DVT that were admitted to our hospital from January to July 2015 were selected as study subjects. They were divided into 2 groups randomly, the treatment group (n=45) and the non-treatment group (n=45). The treatment group was administered folic acid and vitamin B12, while the non-treatment group wasn't administered folic acid and vitamin B12...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to explore the frequency of occult cancer in patients with deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) at a general hospital in Mexico City. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From March 2012 to February 2015, all patients with primary DVT of lower extremities attended in the emergency department of our hospital were studied. Initially, all patients were evaluated with clinical history, physical examination, basic laboratories, abdominal ultrasound, chest X-ray, and duplex venous ultrasonography...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to observe the relationship between the pathological components of a deep venous thrombus (DVT), which was divided into three parts, and the findings on quantitative ultrasonic shear wave elastography (SWE) to increase the accuracy of thrombus staging in a rabbit model. METHODS: A flow stenosis-induced vein thrombosis model was used, and the thrombus was divided into three parts (head, body and tail), which were associated with corresponding observation points...

BACKGROUND: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is one of the major complications of total joint arthroplasty (TJA). Chronic kidney dysfunction (CKD) has proven to promote a proinflammatory and prothrombotic state and is prevalent among patients undergoing TJA. The purpose of this study is to identify whether CKD increase the risk of DVT following TJA. METHODS: In a retrospective study, 1274 patients who underwent primary TJA were studied. CKD is graded in 5 stages. Univariate and multivariate analysis were used to identify the association of CKD and its severity with postoperative DVT...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is one of the leading causes of cirrhosis. As a result of chronic inflammatory response to the virus, HCV-infected patients may be at a higher risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). However, the data on this association is unclear. This systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted with the aims to summarize all available evidence. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A literature search was performed using MEDLINE and EMBASE from inception to April 2016...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Venous thromboembolism (VTE), comprising deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a major healthcare concern that results in substantial morbidity and mortality with great economic burden for healthcare systems. Hence, the need for effective and efficient treatment of patients with VTE is important for both clinical and economic reasons. The objective of this study was to evaluate the cost effectiveness of rivaroxaban compared to standard of care (SoC) with enoxaparin followed by dose-adjusted vitamin-K antagonists for the treatment of DVT and PE in Greece...

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...
