IVUS Findings in Late and Very Late Stent Thrombosis. A Comparison Between Bare-metal and Drug-eluting Stents
Conclusions Malapposition was the most common finding in patients with late and very late ST and is more prevalent with DES in very late ST. In contrast, neoatherosclerosis was exclusively observed in patients with very late ST and mainly with BMS.

Flanders, Kannan Natarajan, Rafael Garcia-Cortes, Todd Foster, Joshua D. DowellAbstractPurposeTo evaluate ultrasound-accelerated, catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) for treatment of acute submassive pulmonary embolism (PE).Materials and MethodsThis single-center, retrospective study included patients who underwent CDT for acute submassive PE (N = 113, 52% men/48% women) from 2013 to 2017. Baseline characteristics included history of deep veno...
CONCLUSION: The prevalence of carotid plaque was very high in the high-risk stroke population in southwestern China. Variants in genes involved in the endothelial function and inflammation were associated with the carotid plaque. The high-risk interactive genotype among rs7923349, rs1991013, rs1609682, and rs8081248 was independently associated with a higher risk of vulnerable plaque.

Regional anesthesia (RA)-induced vasodilation increases the proportion of patients with vein anatomy suitable for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation. The functional outcomes of AVFs created with veins initially small for size on preoperative duplex ultrasound mapping ( ≤2.4 mm) that are recruited under RA have not been clearly defined. We aimed to evaluate freedom from revision or thrombosis, time to first cannulation, and reintervention rates of AVFs created with veins recruited after induction of RA.
Conclusion Anlotinib effectively controlled the growth of NSCLC and improved TAO related symptoms. Anlotinib maybe normalize disordered growth of blood vessels through the VEGF signaling pathway, rather than simply inhibiting angiogenesis. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.10
We present a contemporary review summarizing the different catheter directed interventions currently available for acute PE, their indications, technical considerations, clinical effectiveness, complication rates and long-term outcomes.Expert opinion: For intermediate high-risk PE patients without a contraindication for thrombolysis, CDIs should be considered in patients at risk for clinical decompensation. For high risk PE patients with a major contraindication to thrombolytic therapy, suction thrombectomy can be considered in places with appropriate clinical and technical expertise.

CONCLUSIONS: Cold-induced BAT activity at baseline seems to correlate with lower levels of conventional cardiovascular risk factors at baseline and with lower carotid intima-media thickness and higher carotid elasticity at 5-year follow-up. PMID: 31941384 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Our study demonstrates the potential of CEUS in the differentiation of bland and tumor thrombus of the IVC in patients with RCC. Since CEUS is an effective, inexpensive, and non-invasive method, it could be a reliable tool in the evaluation of IVC thrombus in patients with RCC.
Tunneled Hickman/Broviac central venous catheter implantation is performed when patients require a central vein route for long-term therapy. The subclavian or internal jugular vein approach is often chosen for their implantation sites. However, access to the central vein can be difficult owing to thrombosis or stenosis when the same vein has already been accessed several times. In such situations, other possible alternative approaches to the central vein should be considered to avoid serious complications owing to further unsuccessful attempts.
CONCLUSION Trainee anaesthesiologists can achieve higher success rates by using the Saline MDNTP-US technique instead of the MDNTP-US technique for radial artery catheterisation in neonates, taking less time with a lower incidence of complications.

In this paper, we report the Ultrasound aspects and Recanalization Rates of patients with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in the lower limbs treated with the rivaroxaban, focusing on the recanalization rate and the ultrassonographic aspects.
