BACKGROUND CONTEXT: With more cement augmentation procedures done, the occurrence of serious complications is also expected to rise. Symptomatic central cement embolization is a rare but very serious complication. Moreover, the pathophysiology and treatment of intrathoracic cement embolism remain controversial. PURPOSE: In this case series, we are trying to identify various presentations and suggest our emergent management scheme for symptomatic central cement embolization...

OBJECTIVE: The management of venous thromboembolism (VTE) has evolved during the last decade. This study sheds light on the national trends in hospital admissions, outcomes, and economic burden for VTE. METHODS: The National Inpatient Sample (NIS) was reviewed between 2003 and 2013 for hospitalizations for VTE, defined as admissions with a principal diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). Outcomes measured were incidence, inpatient mortality, rates of interventions, hospital length of stay (LOS), and charges...

In this case report, we describe an unusual episode of bilateral submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) caused by a popliteal vein aneurysm (PVA). The development of PE stems from many risk factors including obesity (BMI³ 30 kg/m2), hypertension, cigarette smoking (greater than 25 cigarettes per day), increasing age, surgery, immobility, malignancy, and inherited thrombophilia. A PVA is a rare but significant cause of PE. A 28-year-old male presented to the emergency department with progressive shortness of breath...

Paradoxical embolism is a known complication with intra-cardiac shunts. It should be considered in the differential as the pathophysiologic mechanism of simultaneous thromboembolism in the venous and systemic vasculature. We present a case of simultaneous deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and myocardial infarction in the presence of a confirmed patent foramen ovale on echocardiography. Thrombolytic therapy was administered. Subsequent concerns of intracranial hemorrhage on imaging of the brain complicated the management and added to the challenge of co-managing the clot burden in our patient...

REVIEW
Kathlyn J Ronaldson
Myocarditis occurs in about 3% of those initiated on clozapine but monitoring reduces the risk of serious outcome. Cardiomyopathy may develop after myocarditis, or from prolonged tachycardia. Monitoring using echocardiography is not deemed cost effective. Tachycardia, orthostatic hypotension and reduced heart rate variability are a group of clozapine-related adverse effects associated with autonomic dysfunction and may have serious consequences in the long term. Elevated heart rate and poor heart rate variability can be treated with a β-blocker or a non-dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker, while orthostatic hypotension can be alleviated by increased fluid intake and abdominal binding, but may require pharmacological intervention...

BACKGROUND: Thromboembolic events following splenectomy are not uncommon. However, the role of thromboprophylaxis and risk factors for thrombosis, as well as the clinical course and outcomes, are not well characterized. METHODS: A retrospective review of individuals who underwent splenectomy between January 2006 and December 2015 in two university hospitals. RESULTS: Overall, 297 patients underwent splenectomy [open splenectomy (n = 199), laparoscopic splenectomy (n = 98)]...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) can result in rapid clinical decompensation in many patients. With increasing patient complexity and advanced treatment options for PE, multidisciplinary, rapid response teams can optimize risk stratification and expedite management strategies. The Massive And Submassive Clot On-call Team (MASCOT) was created at our institution, which comprised specialists from cardiology, pulmonology, hematology, interventional radiology, and cardiac surgery. MASCOT offers rapid consultation 24 hours a day with a web-based conference call to review patient data and discuss management of patients with high-risk PE...

INTRODUCTION: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) continues to be a significant source of morbidity for surgical patients. Placement of a retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter is used when patients have contraindications to anticoagulation or recurrent pulmonary embolism despite therapeutic anticoagulation. Although retrievable IVC filters are often used, they carry a unique set of risks. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 67-year-old man presents to the Emergency Room (ER) following large volume melena and complaining of syncope...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains a leading cause of direct maternal deaths in the developed countries. The incidence of VTE has increased significantly during the past two decades. The absolute risk of VTE is estimated 0.6-2.2 per 1000 deliveries. Compared with age-matched non-pregnant women, the daily risk of VTE is increased 7- to 10-fold for antepartum VTE, but it is 15- to 35-fold for postpartum VTE. The incidence of pulmonary embolism (PE) during the first 6 weeks postpartum is nearly 15-fold higher compared to the incidence in pregnancy, and remains significantly increased up to 12 weeks postpartum...

Lung transplantation is a viable treatment option for patients with end-stage lung diseases such as interstitial pneumonia/pulmonary fibrosis, emphysema, pulmonary hypertension, and so on. Collecting available clinical, physiological, serological, and surgical information of both donor and recipient is vital when planning relevant postoperative managements. The goal of the managements is to keep the transplanted lung (s) functional while preventing/treating infection, rejection, and ischemiareperfusion lung injury...

BACKGROUND: Immobilization of the lower limb is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE). Low molecular weight heparins (LMWHs) are anticoagulants, which might be used in adult patients with lower-limb immobilization to prevent deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and its complications. This is an update of the review first published in 2008. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness of low molecular weight heparin for the prevention of venous thromboembolism in patients with lower-limb immobilization in an ambulatory setting...

INTRODUCTION: The appropriate strategy for initiating oral anticoagulant (OAC) therapy after an acute venous thromboembolism (VTE) depends on the intermediate-term anticoagulant to be used. While heparin bridging to vitamin K antagonists (VKA) is required, the direct oral anticoagulants (DOAC) rivaroxaban (30mg/day) and apixaban (10mg/day) can be initiated directly without parenteral anticoagulation. The objective was to evaluate OAC initiation patterns in clinical practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: PREFER in VTE was an international, non-interventional registry conducted between January 2013 and August 2015...

Arterial gas embolism (AGE) can be clinically devastating, and is most often associated with exposure to changes in ambient pressure, medical procedure or congenital malformation. Here we report a case of AGE in a 78-year-old male without these traditional risk factors. Rather, the patient's history included chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, necrotizing pneumonia, bullous disease and coughing. He was safely treated with hyperbaric oxygen (HBO₂) therapy for AGE, with initial clinical improvement, but ultimately died from his underlying condition...

AIMS: Acute thrombosis of hemodialysis (HD) arteriovenous access is an urgent problem for HD patients and is commonly managed by endovascular thrombolysis. Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a recognized complication of HD access thrombosis and thrombolysis but the risk and outcomes are unclear. This study aims to determine the incidence, predictors, and outcomes of PE after endovascular thrombolysis of HD arteriovenous access in patients presenting with acute thrombosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A single-center retrospective study was performed for all adult chronic kidney disease patients undergoing arteriovenous access thrombolysis between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2014...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) during pregnancy remains the leading preventable cause of maternal morbidity and mortality in the developed countries. Diagnosis of PE in pregnant patients is a challenging clinical problem, since pregnancy-related physiologic changes can mimic signs and symptoms of PE. Patient mismanagement may result into unjustified anticoagulant treatment or unnecessary imaging tests involving contrast-related or/and radiation-related risks for both the expectant mother and embryo/fetus. On the other hand, missing or delaying diagnosis of PE could lead to life-threatening conditions for both the mother and the embryo/fetus...
