Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) is being increasingly used for the treatment of proximal lower extremity (LE) deep venous thrombosis (DVT). However, sex differences in utilization and safety outcomes of CDT in these patients are unknown. The Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database was used to identify all patients with a principal discharge diagnosis of proximal LE or caval DVT who underwent CDT between January 2005 and December 2011 in the United States. We evaluated the comparative safety outcomes of CDT among a propensity-matched group of 1731 men versus 1731 women...

Purpose To inform the management of fractured inferior vena cava filters on the basis of results from a tertiary referral center specializing in complex filter retrieval. Materials and Methods This study had institutional review board approval and was HIPAA compliant. Retrospective analysis of all patients with fractured filters and/or filter fragments evaluated for removal in a complex filter removal program was performed. Removal was attempted when fragments were intravascular or immediately extravascular by using primarily endobronchial forceps for caval fragments and snares for cardiac and pulmonary fragments...

A 30-year-old Japanese man was diagnosed with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) with lupus anticoagulants (LAs) in 2003. He underwent pulmonary endarterectomy after the placement of an inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) in 2004, and treatment with warfarin was continued. In 2014, IVCF occlusion and marked collateral circulation were noted during an examination for transient dyspnea; however, his warfarin level was within the therapeutic range for 88.9% of the time from 2003 to 2014. We herein report a rare case of CTEPH and LAs with IVCF occlusion; in such cases, intense treatment may be required...

We encountered a 45-year-old Japanese man who suffered from pulmonary thromboembolism and huge right ventricular thrombus after inferior vena cava (IVC) filter implantation without apparent thrombus in either the deep veins or inside the IVC filter. The biochemical data showed a discrepancy in the level of fibrinogen between the immunological and thrombin time methods, suggesting hypodysfibrinogenemia. The sequencing of the fibrinogen γ-chain gene (FGG) revealed a novel heterozygous missense mutation in exon 8 - a TGT to TCT transversion in codon 326 - resulting in an amino acid substitution of serine for cysteine (γCys326Ser)...

Although anticoagulation remains the mainstay of therapy for patients with venous thromboembolism, guidelines recommend the use of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in those who fail anticoagulation or have contraindications to its use. Short-term use of filters has proven effective in reducing the rate of pulmonary embolism. However, their extended use is associated with a variety of complications such as thrombosis, filter migration, or caval perforation, thus making a case for timely filter retrieval. This is the case of a 68-year-old female with a history of chronic oral anticoagulation use for multiple deep venous thrombi (DVT) and pulmonary emboli (PE) who required cervical and thoracic spinal intervention for spondylosis and foramina stenosis...

Popliteal venous aneurysms (PVAs) are often reported as a cause of pulmonary embolism. Previous reports documented the association between a single PVA and pulmonary embolism. We experienced a rare case with multiple venous saccular and fusiform aneurysms resulting in a nearly fatal pulmonary embolism. Surgical ligation is usually considered the first-line treatment for PVAs. In our patient, however, we selected inferior vena cava filter implantation and anticoagulant therapy to avoid the phlegmasia cerulea dolens caused by ligation of multiple aneurysms in both legs...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common thrombotic event that is variable in its presentation. Depending on the patients' risk for mortality, guidelines provide several treatment strategies including thrombolysis, catheter-directed therapies, pulmonary embolectomy, anticoagulation, and inferior vena cava filters. However, there is considerable disagreement between guidelines regarding the optimal treatment strategy for patients, particularly for those with intermediate-risk PE. In order to provide rapid and individualized care, PE response teams (PERT) have been developed...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are useful adjuncts to prevent venous thromboembolism to the pulmonary circulation in the setting of contraindication for anticoagulation. Despite their proven decreased rate of pulmonary embolism, IVC filters are not without complications. We herein present the case of a 22-year-old man with a history of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome who was sent to our institution for evaluation with Budd-Chiari and post-thrombotic syndromes associated to a chronic retrohepatic complete IVC occlusion secondary to an IVC filter placed 5 years earlier...

BACKGROUND: Due to the high incidence of thromboembolic events (deep venous thrombosis [DVT] and pulmonary embolus [PE]) after injury, many trauma centers perform lower extremity surveillance duplex ultrasounds. We hypothesize that trauma patients are at a higher risk of upper extremity DVTs (UEDVTs) than lower extremity DVTs (LEDVTs), and therefore, all extremities should be evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart and trauma registry review of Intensive Care Unit trauma patients with upper and LEDVTs detected on surveillance duplex ultrasound from January 2010 to December 2014 was carried out...

BACKGROUND: Inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) have been associated with improved survival in patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) in some studies. However, without randomization, those with early mortality who did not receive an IVCF may have died prior to treatment decision about filter placement, falsely contributing a survival advantage to those receiving IVCF and biasing the results of previous observational studies. The objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of IVCF on in-hospital mortality after adjusting for this survivor treatment selection...

BACKGROUND: There are few studies that have determined clinical outcomes following inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) insertion in cancer patients hospitalized for acute deep-vein-thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed hospital discharge records of all patients with active cancer who were admitted to a California hospital specifically for acute DVT or PE between 2005 through 2009. Propensity and competing risk methodology were used to determine if IVCF-use lowered either 30-day mortality or the risk of recurrent PE, DVT, and major bleeding within 180days...

The retrievable type of inferior vena cava filter has been widely used to prevent pulmonary thromboembolism in patients with deep vein thrombosis and contraindication of anticoagulation. Physicians make considerable efforts to remove the filter according to the manufacturer and US Food and Drug Administration safety advisory recommendation. However, forced filter retrieval might cause vascular injury within 3 weeks. Herein, we report pathologic and angiographic findings to suggest filter associated vascular injury during forced retrieval just within recommended period in a patient with deep vein thrombosis...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement is indicated for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with a contraindication to or a failure of anticoagulation. With the advent of retrievable IVC filters and their ease of placement, an increasing number of such filters are being inserted for prophylaxis in patients at high risk for VTE. Available data show that only a small number of these filters are retrieved within the recommended period, if at all, prompting the FDA to issue a statement on the need for their timely removal...

Inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) placement appears to be expanding over time despite absence of clear directing evidence.Two populations were studied. The first population included patients who received an IVCF between January 2005 and August 2013 at our community hospital center. Demographic information, indications for placement, and retrieval rate was recorded among other variables. The second population comprised of patients receiving an IVCF from 2005 to 2012 according to the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) using ICD-9CM coding...

PURPOSE: Our purpose was to develop a predictive model for short-term survival (i.e. <6 months) following inferior vena cava filter placement in patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) and solid malignancy. METHODS: Clinical and laboratory parameters were retrospectively reviewed for patients with solid malignancy who received a filter between January 2009 and December 2011 at a tertiary care cancer center. Multivariate Cox proportional hazards modeling was used to assess variables associated with 6 month survival following filter placement in patients with VTE and solid malignancy...

L-Arginine (L-arg), widely known as a substrate for endogenous nitric oxide synthesis, can improve endothelial function associated with the vasculature, inhibit platelet aggregation, and alter the activity of vascular smooth muscle cells. P-selectin is a membrane component of the platelet alpha-granule and the endothelial cell-specific Wiebel-Palade body that plays a central role in mediating interactions between platelets and both leukocytes and the endothelium. The experiment was designed to evaluate the effect of novel microspheres with L-arg targeting P-selectin on the formation of deep vein thrombosis and repair of vascular wall in a rat model...
