INTRODUCTION: In patients with a hypercoagulable state, such as patients with pulmonary embolism and/or Budd-Chiari syndrome, the complications from multiple gene mutations are more numerous than those from a single mutation. The authors present a woman with no major prior medical history who presented with pulmonary embolism and Budd-Chiari syndrome; this enigmatic co-occurrence has never been solely reported without underlying aetiology in a patient without prior medical conditions...

Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome is a rare mixed malformation characterized by congenital varicose veins, low-flow venous and lymphatic malformations, hypertrophy of soft tissue and bone, and capillary malformations. A 35-year-old man with a diagnosis of Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome presented to the clinic with significant pain and swelling in the left leg. Initial conservative management with compression therapy failed. He was then managed surgically with preoperative placement of an inferior vena cava filter (because of a history of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism), followed by resection of the lateral embryonic vein, ligation of large perforators, and excision of smaller varicosities...

This study aimed to present long-term results of a 12-year patient follow-up of recoverable stents for BCS complicated by inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis. Forty consecutive patients with BCS complicated by IVC thrombosis were treated with recoverable stents. The median duration of symptoms was 24 months. Recoverable stents was placed after predilation of the obstructed IVC, and then agitation thrombolysis or catheter-directed thrombolysis of IVC was performed. The recoverable stents was removed eventually after thrombus disappeared...

When the Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) lesion extends to the inferior vena cava (IVC) or the orifices of the hepatic vein, the thickened IVC and/or hepatic vein wall must be removed and IVC reconstruction is required in living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT). In various reports about IVC resection in LDLT for BCS, there are none about left lobe liver transplantation with reconstruction of the retrohepatic IVC (rhIVC). To overcome removal and reconstruction of the rhIVC in LDLT for BCS, we introduced a composite IVC graft that is applicable to both right and left lobe partial liver grafts for LDLT for BCS...

Venous thrombosis is a common condition affecting 1 - 2% of the population, with an annual incidence of 1 in 500. Venous thrombosis can lead to death through pulmonary embolism or results in the post-thrombotic syndrome, characterized by chronic leg pain, swelling, and ulceration, or in chronic pulmonary hypertension resulting in significant chronic respiratory compromise. This is the most common cardiovascular disease after myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke and is a clinical challenge for all medical disciplines, as it can complicate the course of other disorders such as cancer, systemic disease, surgery, and major trauma...

BACKGROUND:  Patients undergoing deep vein thrombosis (VT) have over 30% recurrence, directly increasing their risk of post-thrombotic syndrome. Current murine models of inferior vena cava (IVC) VT model host one thrombosis event. OBJECTIVE:  We aimed to develop a murine model to study IVC recurrent VT in mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  An initial VT was induced using the electrolytic IVC model (EIM) with constant blood flow. This approach takes advantage of the restored vein lumen 21 days after a single VT event in the EIM demonstrated by ultrasound...

Superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) represents undoubtedly a rare life-threatening condition. Herein, we present a rare case of a 69-year-old woman, with a history of hepatic flexure tumor and an indwelling central venous port, presenting with acute signs and symptoms of SVCS due to thrombosis of the catheter. The patient was treated with intravenous anticoagulation and fibrinolytic therapy and showed regression of symptoms. It is reported that central venous catheters are routinely used in clinical practice mainly in oncological cases for chemotherapy, parenteral nutrition or dialysis...

Vascular Behçet's disease (BD) would keep risk of anastomotic pseudoaneurysm due to deterioration of the disease even after vascular surgery was successfully done. Therefore, it is one of the least-welcome diseases for vascular surgeons. There still exist several points on a concept and criteria of the vascular BD which not only general practitioners but also the vascular surgeons do not understand. Clinical findings strongly suspecting vascular BD are follows; saccular aneurysms without atherosclerosis developed in younger than 50-year-old patients, superior vena cava syndrome or deep vein thrombosis in bilateral legs without apparent causes, and multiple superficial thrombophlebitis, etc...

Cutaneous lymphangitis carcinomatosa (CLC) is a rare form of cutaneous metastasis that causes lymphoedema and various eruptions. We report a case of lung cancer with CLC that caused both superior vena cava (SVC) stenosis and cervicofacial oedema, suggestive of SVC syndrome. A 64-year-old woman with lung adenocarcinoma presented with cervicofacial oedema and erythema, followed by severe dyspnoea 2 months after four cycles of carboplatin, pemetrexed and bevacizumab triplet therapy. Although chest CT indicated SVC stenosis, cervicofacial oedema remained despite treating the SVC stenosis via balloon dilation...

Venous compression syndromes are caused by extrinsic venous compression of anatomical structures, such as the adjacent arteries and bones. Chronic venous compression and pulsative vibratory arterial pressure accelerate the development of deep vein thrombosis. Herein, we report the first case of double venous compressions due to a duplicated inferior vena cava-induced right-sided common iliac vein thrombosis. The thrombus was induced by left-sided inferior vena cava entrapment and right-sided common iliac vein compression, resembling nutcracker syndrome and May-Thurner syndrome, respectively...
