Failure to remove a retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter can cause severe complications with high treatment costs. Polydioxanone (PPDO) has been shown to be a good candidate material for resorbable IVC filters. However, PPDO is radioluscent under conventional imaging modalities. Thus, the positioning and integrity of these PPDO filters cannot be monitored by computed tomography (CT) or x-ray. Here we report the development of radiopaque PPDO IVC filters based on gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). Commercially available PPDO sutures were infused with AuNPs...

PURPOSE: Measurement of inferior vena cava collapsibility (cIVC) by point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has been proposed as a viable, non-invasive means of assessing fluid responsiveness. We aimed to determine the ability of cIVC to identify patients who will respond to additional intravenous fluid (IVF) administration among spontaneously breathing critically-ill patients. METHODS: Prospective observational trial of spontaneously breathing critically-ill patients...

Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare and highly aggressive malignant neoplasm which can produce intravascular extension into the inferior vena cava (IVC) rarely extend into the right atrium (RA). We report a case of a male patient with large ACC with extension into the IVC and RA. Computed tomography showed a large right adrenal mass with contiguous tumor thrombus extending into IVC and RA with extension to the level of tricuspid valve. Patient underwent combined cardiac and abdominal surgical intervention on cardiopulmonary bypass with removal of the mass...

BACKGROUND The recipient's pattern of hepatic veins (HVs) drainage into the inferior vena cava (IVC) (drainage pattern, for short) may influence outflow reconstruction and thus hepatic venous outflow obstruction (HVOO) in piggyback liver transplantation (PBLT). However, no previous study has investigated this association. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective analysis of 202 PBLT (2000-2016) was conducted. Based on drainage patterns, the patients were divided into Group A (common trunk of left and middle HVs), Group B (common trunk of right and middle HVs), and Group C (common trunk of 3 HVs)...

Accurate knowledge of surface anatomy is fundamental to safe clinical practice. A paucity of evidence in the literature regarding thoracic surface anatomy in children was identified. The associations between surface landmarks and internal structures were meticulously analyzed by reviewing high quality computed tomography (CT) images of 77 children aged from four days to 12 years. The results confirmed that the sternal angle is an accurate surface landmark for the azygos-superior vena cava junction in a plane through to the level of upper T4 from birth to age four, and to lower T4 in older children...

Complete absence of Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) is a rare anomaly with a reported incidence of 0.0005% to 1%. This is often asymptomatic with incidental detection during cross-sectional imaging. It may also present with deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary thromboembolism or compressive symptoms in form of nerve root compression. Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) is an increasingly recognized entity with well laid out diagnostic criteria and evolving management protocols. Complete absence of IVC is a rare cause of pelvic congestion syndrome...

Situs inversus, an uncommon mirror-image reversal of the major visceral and thoracic organs, is seldom of medical significance. However, the recognition of their unique anatomy is extremely important for those requiring surgical intervention. There are very few reported cases of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) developing in people with situs inversus. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in Canada. A review of the literature only identified nine published cases worldwide. Here, we review and summarize pertinent information, including patient age and sex, size and location of tumour, method of surgery, and pathology...

Patients born with a single functional ventricle typically undergo three-staged surgical palliation in the first years of life, with the last stage realizing a cross-like total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) of superior and inferior vena cavas (SVC and IVC) with both left and right pulmonary arteries, allowing all deoxygenated blood to flow passively back to the lungs (Fontan circulation). Even though within the past decades more patients survive into adulthood, the connection comes at the prize of deficiencies such as chronic systemic venous hypertension and low cardiac output, which ultimately may lead to Fontan failure...

Insufficient penetration of microbubbles (MBs) into the vessel-obstructing thrombi significantly reduces the effectiveness of ultrasound thrombolysis (UT). The widely performed catheter-directed therapy (CDT) makes it possible to increase the local concentration of MBs in the clot. In an occluded vessel with a bypass, treatment of fresh human whole blood clots with CDT-based UT (intra-clot injection of MBs and urokinase, with ultrasound exposure) resulted in a significantly higher percentage of weight loss (35...

Noninvasive and convenient tests to assess pulmonary fibrosis and disease progression in interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are currently unavailable. The extracellular matrix molecules, laminin (LN), type IV collagen (IVC), procollagen III N-terminal peptide (PIIINP), and hyaluronic acid (HA) are involved in ILD development and progression. This study aims to investigate the association of disease progression and serum levels of LN, IVC, PIIINP, and HA in patients with ILD. This retrospective study included 323 patients (162 cases of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis [IPF] and 161 cases of connective tissue diseases ILD [CTD-ILD]) treated in Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital between January 2013 and January 2015 and 160 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Historical anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) outcomes have been terrible, with a median survival of only 5 months and <20% 1-year survival. Improved outcomes are now achieved with aggressive initial therapy in stages IVA and IVB disease, but patients with distant metastatic disease (stage IVC) still do poorly; improved therapies are sorely needed. Kinase inhibitors have emerged as promising agents in the therapy of advanced medullary and differentiated thyroid cancer, but there are limited data regarding use of lenvatinib in ATC...
