Efstratios Georgakarakos, Christina Bitza, Nikolaos Papanas, Miltiadis Matsagkas, Miltos K Lazarides
Although peripheral arterial disease is prevalent in the primary care setting, insufficient vascular education among nurses and physicians coupled with certain economic constraints undermines treatment efficacy. Moreover, the burden of advanced venous pathology such as posthrombotic syndrome, venous ulcers, and lymphedema remains suboptimally treated. This article advocates the development of a vascular nursing specialty as a means to improving vascular care especially nowadays, when health care providers dictate comprehensive and cost-effective nursing practice and patient management...

Venous thromboembolic disease (VTD) is a frequent medical problem. The VTD includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT), the posthrombotic syndrome (PTS) and pulmonary embolism (PE). The generation of a thrombus in the venous system, is caused by several abnormalities that induce the loss of the most important characteristic of the blood, the liquid state. DVT is due to the formation of a thrombus. Main causes for thrombus formation are thrombophilias which may be classified as primary and secondary. All thrombophilias may affect the homeostasis favoring a hypercoagulable state...

About one-fourth of patients undergoing general surgery and not receiving antithrombotic prophylaxis will suffer postoperative venous thromboembolism (VTE), which includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the legs and pulmonary embolism (PE). Apart from fatal PE, which affects 0.8% of general surgical patients, about one-third of patients with DVT will develop long-term complications, such as posthrombotic syndrome and recurrent VTE. The best strategy to reduce the high morbidity and mortality associated with postoperative VTE, is to use some of the available prophylactic methods which have been shown to be effective and safe for VTE prevention...

OBJECTIVE: Our objective was that of describing a series of episodes of upper limb deep venous thrombosis, with special emphasis on the incidence of posthrombotic syndrome and its impact in the quality of life of the patients. METHODS: 33 episodes (29 patients) of upper limb deep venous thrombosis were studied, between January 1995 and January 2002; episodes until September 1999 (18 episodes) were considered retrospectively while those which took place starting in this date (15 episodes) were considered prospectively...

From 1989 to 1995, 213 patients with chronic post-thrombotic syndrome of the deep veins of lower limbs were treated. The surgical approaches consisted of establishment of temporary distal arteriovenous fistula for iliac and iliofemoral occlusion, and bypass of suitable length of autogenous vein with temporary distal arteriovenous fistula. Those who were not candidates for surgery were treated continuously by conservative methods with periodical short-term thrombolysis. A mean follow-up of 37.3 months the cure rate and the effective rate were 50...

Six cases with posthrombotic obstruction of the pelvic veins are reported. These case reports demonstrate the variability of the clinical symptomatology. In addition relationships between the postthrombotic obstruction of the pelvic veins and hemorrhoids and varicocele are discussed. Therapeutical aspects are reviewed.
