Bilateral Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens After Warfarin Reversal for Acute Rectal Bleeding: A Case Report

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a common disease that is diagnosed in approximately 1 in 1000 adults annually. Extensive DVT can lead to life- or limb-threatening diagnoses such as phlegmasia cerulea dolens (PCD), phlegmasia alba dolens, and venous gangrene. PCD, also known as massive iliofemoral venous thrombosis, is rare, and a severe complication of DVT.

CONCLUSION: Active retinal bleeding has been reported only twice in the past, in these cases, it was attributed to superficial venous vessel rupture due to vitreous traction or Valsalva-like retinopathy at the site of neovascularization. Active retinal vein bleeding during a fluorescein angiography, secondary to deep venous thrombosis due to Fournier gangrene, has not been previously reported.

ConclusionsConcurrence of unilateral lower limb deep vein thrombosis in a typical clinical setting of symmetrical peripheral gangrene is a potential explanation for greater extent of acral ischemic injury in the limb affected by deep vein thrombosis.

CONCLUSIONS: Low-quality evidence suggests that patients treated at home with LMWH are less likely to have recurrence of VTE than those treated in hospital. However, data show no clear differences in major or minor bleeding, nor in mortality (low-quality evidence), indicating that home treatment is no worse than in-patient treatment for these outcomes. Because most healthcare systems are moving towards more LMWH usage in the home setting it is unlikely that additional large trials will be undertaken to compare these treatments. Therefore, home treatment is likely to become the norm, and further research will be directed to...

Conclusions PT and HOT have demonstrated good outcomes in the perioperative and intermediate periods. HOT is noninferior to PT as a technique for early thrombus removal and has the advantages that thrombus resolution is established in one operation and length of stay is significantly decreased. HOT avoids thrombolytic therapy, which may reduce major bleeding events.

Conclusions Gastrointestinal aspergillosis is an unusual presentation of invasive Aspergillus associated with a high mortality rate. Characteristic features of gastrointestinal aspergillosis include invasion of the mesenteric arteries, intravascular thrombosis and subsequent tissue ischemia. Clinical manifestations of invasive Aspergillus of the gastrointestinal tract can include fever, abdominal pain, ileus, peritonitis, bloody diarrhea or hematochezia. In an autopsy series of patients with invasive Aspergillus, 37 of 107 patients had Aspergillus involvement of the gastrointestinal system; the most common patho...
