CONCLUSION: incidence of VTE is low, male gender, personal or family history of VTE and caliber of varicose veins greater than 7 mm increased the risk. PMID: 33019844 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
A 33-year-old woman was admitted for a 1-year history of repeated hematemesis and melena. Physical examination revealed splenomegaly, hypertrophy of the left lower limb, varicose veins and port-wine stains on the bilateral lower extremities. Computed tomography and endoscopy showed esophageal varices, cavernous transformation of the portal vein, massive splenomegaly with multiple low-density internal nodules and diffuse hemangiomas spread throughout the colon (Fig. 1). The complete blood count indicated a hemoglobin level of 5 g/dL.
If the drug-induced limitation of conscience induced by sedation anesthesia requires the accompaniment by an accompanying person after a surgery for varicose veins, what should we do after local anesthesia by tumescence (TLA)? We studied the feasibility of an unaccompanied return home of these patients.
The treatment of non troncular varicose veins more and more uses foam echo-sclerosis. It gives good short-term results but with frequent early and late recanalisations requiring monitoring and repeated injections. Steam ablation combines the effectiveness of a thermal treatment (long-term good performance) and the capacity of gas diffusion without toxicity or the embolic risk related to foam echo-sclerosis.
Background. Molecular mechanisms underlying pathogenesis of varicose veins are not fully understood. Expression of genes in varicose veins compared with normal vein segments in patients with varicose veins was evaluated. The pilot study using micro-array analysis revealed a set of genes differentially expressed in varicose veins. In the present study The aim was to validate micro-array data on genes related to extracellular matrix: COL15A1 (collagen type XV alpha 1 chain), CHRDL2 (chordin like 2), EFEMP1 (EGF containing fibulin extracellular matrix protein 1), and TIMP1 (metallopeptidase inhibitor 1), using an independent ...
Background. The results of cyanoacrylate embolisation (CAE) of the great (GSV) and small (SSV) saphenous trunks in patients with varicose veins (VVs) of the lower limbs were evaluated.
Background. The current catheters and fibres used for endovenous laser and radiofrequency ablation of varicose veins have a radial energy emission. This gives an opportunity to treat veins of a large diameter which was previously considered to be challenging. The majority of studies categorise veins of more than 1 cm in diameter as large (Chaar C.I., et al. 2011; Florescu C., et al. 2014). Many patients have saphenous veins 1 –2 cm in diameter, which can be occluded in almost 100% of cases. Treating veins more than 2 cm in diameter with tumescent anaesthesia may be associated with formation of a “blind pocket”.
In conclusion, although our data needs further confirmation, OSES device might represents a new interesting opportunity for reconstructive venous surgery.
