Biliovenous fistula occurs due to development of a communication between hepatic duct and portal vein branches and is a rare complication of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD). Most of them are self-limiting and only occasionally they need interventional management. Placement of biliary stent graft is a viable option. We present here a case of a 56-year-old male with carcinoma of gall bladder presenting with hemodynamic shock due to severe hemobilia after PTBD and treated successfully by biliary covered stent placement...

BACKGROUND: Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a frequent complication of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) despite adequate treatment. Venous angioplasty and stent placement has been progressively used to restore and maintain venous patency in PTS patients. This study reports our single-center experience with the use of endovascular treatment for chronic post-thrombotic symptomatic ilio-femoral venous obstructive lesions. METHODS: A prospective mono-centric observational cohort study of PTS patients with chronic symptomatic ilio-femoral venous obstructive lesions referred for endovascular treatment was conducted from March 2012 to April 2016...

The medical and surgical complications of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) are well-known, including deep venous thrombosis. Ovarian vein thrombosis (OVT) is a rare, but potentially serious type of venous thrombosis that has not previously been reported as a complication of PCNL or ureteral stent placement. We report a case of OVT associated with ureteral stenting following a tubeless PCNL. This complication was successfully managed conservatively without any short- or long-term sequelae.

Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants are becoming increasingly important in the prophylaxis and treatment of thrombosis in atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism. Antiplatelets are widely prescribed in the primary and secondary prevention of cardiac and vascular diseases. There are potentially numerous situations where anticoagulants and antiplatelets may be combined; these combinations have been explored in coronary artery disease, and some have been included in updated recommendations. Is it legitimate to transpose these recommendations to the management of peripheral artery disease? The specific characteristics of the treated vessels, the stents used, the respective frequencies of stent thrombosis and its effect on the target organ are probably different, and explain why opinions differ...

INTRODUCTION: Thrombin generation (TG) is a central step of the coagulation system involved in hemostatic and thrombotic roles. Scarce data evaluating in the acute phase the association between TG and the risk of cardiovascular death of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients are available, in the era of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and stenting with the use of dual antiplatelet treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We investigated TG in 292 ACS patients undergoing PCI with stent implantation on dual antiplatelet treatment...

Portal biliopathy refers to cholangiographic abnormalities which occur in patients with portal cavernoma. These changes occur as a result of pressure on bile ducts from bridging tortuous paracholedochal, epicholedochal and cholecystic veins. Bile duct ischemia may occur due prolonged venous pressure effect or result from insufficient blood supply. In addition, encasement of ducts may occur due fibrotic cavernoma. Majority of patients are asymptomatic. Portal biliopathy is a progressive disease and patients who have long standing disease and more severe bile duct abnormalities present with recurrent episodes of biliary pain, cholangitis and cholestasis...

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a common disorder with a significant mortality rate. Successful endovascular treatment of acute DVT is most likely to be achieved in patients with recently formed thrombus, (<10-14 days) with acute iliofemoral DVT. Endovascular treatment options include: Catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT), pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis (PCDT), percutaneous aspiration thrombectomy (PAT), vena cava filter protection, venous balloon dilatation and venous stent implantation...

Nutcracker syndrome refers to the complex of clinical symptoms caused by the compression of the left renal vein (LRV) between the abdominal aorta and the superior mesenteric artery, leading to stenosis of the aortomesenteric portion of the LRV and dilatation of the distal portion. Hematuria, proteinuria, flank pain, varicocele and pelvic congestion may occur, occurring more frequently in young adults. Conservative management, might be the option whenever it is possible. When surgical treatment is required, classically open surgery have been performed, with major surgeries as LRV transposition or bypass techniques...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic deep venous obstruction can cause a significant loss of quality of life, although it can be treated successfully by stenting. A clear referral pattern for additional imaging is warranted in patients with lower limb complaints. The aim of this study was to determine the value of clinically visible abdominal wall collateral veins in the diagnosis of a potentially treatable deep venous obstruction. METHODS: A total of 295 patients referred for evaluation at a tertiary venous clinic with a collateral vein on the abdominal wall or pubic bone, visible on physical examination, were retrospectively analyzed and compared with a randomly selected control group of 365 patients without such a collateral vein...

BACKGROUND: Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis may occur in patients with iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT), and its impact on thrombolysis outcomes is poorly defined. This study compared outcomes of patients undergoing thrombolysis for acute iliofemoral DVT with and without IVC involvement. METHODS: Patients who underwent thrombolysis for iliofemoral DVT between May 2007 and March 2014 were identified from a prospectively maintained database and divided into two groups: those with IVC involvement and those without...

Venous insufficiency following deep venous thrombosis is known as the post thrombotic syndrome. Whilst its presentation and symptoms can vary slightly between individuals, it can have a profound effect on quality of life. Symptoms range from mild limb swelling to severe intractable ulceration. A number of scoring systems have been developed to help monitor the disease progression, response to treatment as well as to classify patients for research purposes.Treatment involves a combination of therapies, including compression stockings, venous stenting for out flow obstruction and in some instances deep venous bypass...
