Although rare in children, pulmonary embolism (PE) can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Overall rates of venous thromboembolism (VTE) are increasing in hospitalized children. By using the Pediatric Health Information System database, we evaluated incidence, treatment, and outcome of PE in children younger than age 18 years from 2001 to 2014. Demographic characteristics for those admitted with VTE alone and those admitted with PE were compared. Rates of PE by year were compared with the number of hospital and VTE admissions...

INTRODUCTION: Fractures of the pelvis (acetabulum and pelvic ring) are complex in both radiological diagnosis and therapeutic management. They show high risk of thrombosis, with variable rates of venous thromboembolic complications in the literature, ranging from 10% to 50%, with 0.5-10% risk of fatal pulmonary embolism. The objective of the present study was to determine the rate of venous thromboembolic events in a consecutive cohort of pelvic fracture and to attempt to identify thromboembolic risk factors in this population...

A 74-year-old woman underwent abdominal computed tomography for screening, and a right large aneurysmal-type renal arteriovenous fistula (AVF) was found incidentally. The venous sac of the renal arteriovenous fistula was enlarged, and coil embolization was considered. To prevent severe complications such as coil migration, pulmonary embolism, and rupture during procedure, coil embolization was approached via both the feeding artery and the draining vein simultaneously, with balloon occlusion of the feeding artery...

SASI (selective arterial secretin injection) is a form of ASVS (arterial stimulation and venous sampling) used to localize pancreatic gastrinomas. This report aims to review the protocol for SASI and demonstrate its utility in localizing functional and nonfunctional gastrinomas. Even if a patient has a pancreatic mass and a laboratory profile fitting a specific endocrine syndrome, these may or may not be associated as has been previously demonstrated with adrenal vein sampling. We present a case where a patient underwent simultaneous SASI and bland embolization of a hepatic metastasis to facilitate partial pancreatectomy for Zollinger-Ellison syndrome...

Background: Venous thrombo-embolic events (VTE) frequently occur in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) and contribute to high morbidity and mortality. Objectives: To determine whether VTE biomarkers are related to cancer, inflammation or precancerous states and to assess their relevance to predict VTE in PDAC. Patients and Methods: We compared VTE biomarkers in patients with PDAC ( n = 42), intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm of the pancreas (IPMN, n = 48) or chronic pancreatitis ( n = 50)...

BACKGROUND: Antithrombotic treatment regimen following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is not evidence-based. Apixaban, a non-vitamin K direct anticoagulant (NOAC) was shown to be superior to VKA and superior to aspirin to prevent cardioembolic stroke in non-valvular atrial fibrillation. It may have the potential to reduce TAVR-related thrombotic complications including subclinical valve thrombosis along with a better safety than the standard of care. DESIGN: ATLANTIS is a multicenter, randomized, phase IIIb, prospective, open-label, superiority study comparing standard of care (SOC Group) versus an apixaban-based strategy (Anti-Xa Group) after successful TAVR (ClinicalTrials...

Importance: Increasing evidence supports the role of red blood cells (RBCs) in physiological hemostasis and pathologic thrombosis. Red blood cells are commonly transfused in the perioperative period; however, their association with postoperative thrombotic events remains unclear. Objective: To examine the association between perioperative RBC transfusions and postoperative venous thromboembolism (VTE) within 30 days of surgery. Design, Setting, and Participants: This analysis used prospectively collected registry data from the American College of Surgery National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) database, a validated registry of 525 teaching and nonteaching hospitals in North America...

Background: Which patients with fractures, if any, have a lower mortality with prophylactic inferior vena cava filters has yet to be established. The purpose of this investigation is to determine if patients with low-risk fractures might benefit from a prophylactic inferior vena cava filter. Methods: Administrative data was analyzed from the National (Nationwide) Inpatient Sample using ICD-9-CM codes. Included patients were aged 18 years or older with a primary diagnosis of non-complex fracture of the pelvis, or fracture of the femuralone, or fracture of the tibia and/or fibula...

Background: Venous thromboembolic events (VTE) are a common complication of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Prior studies have discussed the utility of mechanical VTE prophylaxis as a monotherapy for low-risk TKA patients. We assess the incidence of clinically significant deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) in low-risk TKA patients who receive mechanical VTE prophylaxis and undergo spinal, epidural, or general anesthesia for their surgery. Methods: A retrospective study was performed on consecutive low-risk patients who received a TKA between July 2002 and June 2015 with spinal anesthesia ( n  = 65), epidural and general anesthesia ( n  = 154), or general anesthesia alone ( n  = 152)...

BACKGROUND: Treating great and small saphenous vein trunk insufficiency with cyanoacrylate glue is the least taxing treatment method of all available techniques. Due to long-term unavailability of commercial kits with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (histoacryl) in the Czech Republic, we used a modified technique. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-six limbs in 49 patients suffering from great saphenous vein or small saphenous vein insufficiency in combination with symptomatic chronic venous insufficiency and complicating comorbidities were treated with a modified endovascular cyanoacrylate glue application technique...

Background: Dural arteriovenous fistulas (dAVFs) are extremely rare in the superior orbital fissure, and they exhibit ocular symptoms similar to the dAVF in the cavernous sinus because of the intraorbital venous congestion. Hence, the distinction of these conditions is imperative because of some inherent differences in endovascular treatment techniques. Case Description: A 58-year-old woman presented with a gradually worsening left eyeball protrusion and conjunctival congestion...

Aneurysms associated with arteriovenous fistulas (AVF) are rare but can cause significant morbidity. They are often diagnosed after rupture, pain, or embolization. We describe a unique case of a 35-year-old woman with a large iliac vein aneurysm related to an acquired AVF incidentally discovered on ultrasound during pregnancy. She had a diagnosis of "idiopathic" pulmonary hypertension for several years. This report details the diagnosis and treatment with an arterial stent graft that was effective in decreasing the size of the venous aneurysm and reversing the systemic changes associated with the disease...

Migration of a bullet to a distant part of the body after a gunshot is rarely observed in the clinical setting furthermore migration to the heart is even rare. There are usually no clear symptoms or signs from migration of a bullet. The case of a 28 years old man with an intracardiac bullet migration, 2 months after a gunshot wound to the right abdomen is presented. We suggest that the bullet migrated along vena cava to the right ventricle. Interventional radiology with a percutaneous transjugular extraction was used to recover this intra cardiac projectile...
