BACKGROUND: Ankle fractures account for 9% of all fractures seen in the United Kingdom. 15,000 of these fractures undergo operative fixation each year. Soft tissue swelling impacts on timing of fixation due to fears of infection and wound dehiscence. The use of arterio-venous foot pumps (AVFP) is increasing in this population although the evidence for their efficacy is unclear. In order to address this, we present an overview of the evidence for AVFP device use following ankle fracture...

Vascular adverse events (VAE) are an emerging problem in patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) receiving second-generation BCR-ABL1 tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). Relevant VAE comprise peripheral, cerebral, and coronary artery changes in patients receiving nilotinib, venous and arterial occlusive events during ponatinib therapy, and pulmonary hypertension in patients receiving dasatinib. Although each TKI binds to a unique profile of molecular targets in leukemic cells and vascular cells, the exact etiology of drug-induced vasculopathies remains uncertain...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Non-muscular myosin heavy chain IIA (NMMHC IIA) has been demonstrated to play a key role in tissue factor (TF) expression and venous thrombosis. However, whether natural products could inhibit thrombosis via NMMHC IIA remains unclear. In this study, we identified that a representative natural saponin D39 from Liriope muscari showed anti-thrombotic activity by targeting NMMHC IIA. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: TF expression and activity in endothelial cells were analysed in vitro by western blot and simplified chromogenic assays...

Apixaban is approved for treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and prevention of recurrence. Population pharmacokinetics, pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics (anti-FXa activity), and exposure-response (binary bleeding and thromboembolic endpoints) of apixaban in VTE treatment subjects were characterized using data from phase I-III studies. Apixaban pharmacokinetics were adequately characterized by a two-compartment model with first-order absorption and elimination. Age, sex, and Asian race had less than 25% impact on exposure, while subjects with severe renal impairment were predicted to have 56% higher exposure than the reference subject (60-year-old non-Asian male weighing 85 kg with creatinine clearance of 100 mL/min)...

PURPOSE: A continuous spermatic venous reflux (SVR) at colour Doppler ultrasound (CDU) is an evidence for varicocele, a frequent correlate for male subfertility. We explored whether SVR after left varicocele repair is predictive for changes in semen quality in subfertile men. METHODS: Blood hormones (FSH, LH, and total testosterone) and scrotal CDU were obtained in subfertile patients with left grade II or grade III varicocele on physical evaluation and a poor sperm quality...

INTRODUCTION: The underlying causes of longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (LETM) are broad and include inflammatory processes, compression and spinal dural arteriovenous fistula (SDAVF). Presenting symptoms of SDAVF are nonspecific and often go misdiagnosed. Acute clinical deterioration from SDAVF has been described following exertion or valsalva. However, deterioration has been recently recognized following steroid administration and may contribute to increased morbidity. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe a 63-year-old woman with a 2-year history of intermittent lower extremity numbness and back pain, lumbar stenosis, who presented with subacute worsening of symptoms following a course of oral steroids for an upper respiratory infection...

Renal cell carcinoma is the most lethal among all urological cancers. The lethality increases with advancing stages of the disease. Renal tumors show a peculiar propensity to invade the venous system. Such invasion not only worsens the disease prognosis but also increases the surgical morbidity making treatment of such tumors challenging. Several small volume series have been published regarding management and outcomes of renal tumors with inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombus which show encouraging results when addressed properly...

The impact of residual pulmonary obstruction on the outcome of patients with pulmonary embolism is uncertain.We recruited 647 consecutive symptomatic patients with a first episode of pulmonary embolism, with or without concomitant deep venous thrombosis. They received conventional anticoagulation, were assessed for residual pulmonary obstruction through perfusion lung scanning after 6 months and then were followed up for up to 3 years. Recurrent venous thromboembolism and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension were assessed according to widely accepted criteria...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: To date, research on extracranial venous collaterals has been focused on structure, with relatively little attention paid to hemodynamics. We addressed this limitation by quantitatively comparing collateral flow in patients with multiple sclerosis and healthy controls by using phase-contrast MR imaging. We hypothesize that patients with MS with structurally anomalous internal jugular veins will have elevated collateral venous flow compared with healthy controls...

Neurological involvement in Behçet's disease is rare, especially at the onset. It can present in the form of parenchymal changes or as damage to the vascular structures in its nonparenchymal form. The coexistence of both kinds of manifestations in the same patient is exceptional. We report the case of a 32-year-old patient with a history of deep venous thrombosis, who was being treated for holocranial headache, apathy, and oral and genital ulcers. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed hyperintense lesions in the basal ganglia and white matter, and the vascular study evidenced venous thrombosis of the left transverse sinus...

OBJECTIVE: Vascular closure devices have been used to achieve hemostasis of percutaneous access sites following endovascular procedures, with reported decreased time for arterial control as well as decreased time to ambulation. We sought to determine rates and risk factors of postoperative bleeding complications and failures using these devices from a single institution experienced in the use of vascular closure devices. METHODS: All patients undergoing arterial endovascular procedures with percutaneous access between March 2010 and October 2015 at a single institution were identified and analyzed (n=894)...

We investigated a new method for combining microbubble-enhanced ultrasound cavitation (MEUC) with hemocoagulase (HC) atrox. Our goal was to induce embolic effects in the vasculature and combine these with an anti-angiogenic treatment strategy. Fourteen days after being implanted with a single slice of the liver VX2 tumor, rabbits were randomly divided into five groups: (i) a control group injected intra-venously with saline using a micropump; (ii) a group given only an injection of HC; (iii) a group treated only with ultrasound cavitation; (iv) a group treated with MEUC; (v) a group treated with MEUC + HC...

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a clinical treatment in which a patient breathes pure oxygen for a limited period of time at an increased pressure. Although this therapy has been used for decades to assist wound healing, its efficacy for many conditions is unproven and its mechanism of action is not yet fully clarified. This study investigated the effects of HBOT on wound healing using a diabetes-impaired pressure ulcer rat model. Seven weeks after streptozotocin-induced diabetes in rats (n = 55), a pressure ulcer was created on dorsal skin...

BACKGROUND: Clinically relevant bleeding (CRB), comprising major bleeding and clinically relevant non-major bleeding, has been used as a surrogate for major bleeding in most anticoagulant trials, but its validity for estimating compromise between thrombotic and bleeding events has never been assessed. METHODS: We systematically reviewed randomized phase III trials comparing new anticoagulants with standard of care for venous thromboembolism prevention following major orthopedic surgery, venous thromboembolism (VTE) treatment, or stroke and systemic embolism prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF), and reporting both major bleeding and CRB rates...

Impella (Abiomed, Danvers, MA) is an effective option for emergent treatment of critical refractory cardiogenic shock. However, in patients who have inadequate peripheral arterial access, Impella for left ventricular support sometimes requires surgical access, leading to disadvantages for emergent procedures or invasiveness for very sick patients. In addition, Impella for right ventricular support was recently reported to contribute to the management of severe biventricular dysfunction. In this report, we describe a case of refractory cardiogenic shock in a patient with inadequate vascular access who was treated with biventricular Impella via venous and caval-aortic access under conscious sedation...
