Plasma D-dimer is not useful in the prediction of deep vein thrombosis after total knee arthroplasty in patients using rivaroxaban for thromboprophylaxis

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a serious complication following total joint replacement. The use of rivaroxaban, a highly selective and direct factor Xa inhibitor, has been used widely as a safe and efficacio...

When patients with lupus are hospitalized, they should be screened and likely treated for venous thromboembolism, researchers of a nationwide study say. In May, ACR Open Rheumatology published results of the large retrospective study spanning several years. Researchers analyzed trends in mortality, morbidity and hospitalization from venous thrombo­embolism (VTE), specifically among patients diagnosed with systemic... [Read More]

AbstractIn the existing reports on combined procedures of abdominoplasty with Cesarean section or natural delivery, a high incidence of complications and poor aesthetic results are reported. We conducted a survey with the participation of 61 plastic surgeons who performed this procedure in 808 patients, with an average of 13.24 procedures per surgeon. In 783 procedures (96.9% of the cases), the combination was with Cesarean section and 25 procedures (3.13% of cases) were combined with vaginal delivery. The plastic surgery procedures were as follows: 242 abdominoplasty procedures (29.95%), 210 abdominoplasty plus liposuctio...

Authors: Xu X, Guo X, Wang R, Wang L, Li Q, Yi F, Li H, Qi X Abstract Acute portomesenteric vein thrombosis is potentially lethal. In the present paper, a cirrhotic patient with a previous history of esophageal variceal bleeding presented with acute occlusive portomesenteric vein thrombosis, but achieved complete recanalization by low-molecular-weight heparin followed by rivaroxaban. Notably, no bleeding episode occurred during anticoagulation therapy. This case supported early initiation of anticoagulation in such patients. PMID: 31521463 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Recently, studies showed that neutrophils extracellular traps (NETs) are the fiber network structures formed by the materials released by neutrophils under various appropriate stimulation. NETs have been indicated to trap and kill microorganisms, playing a critical role in immune responses. It was pointed out that NETs can not only be involved in inflammation and thrombosis, but also is intimately related to tumor metastasis. Therefore, the study of NETs in tumor metastasis is of great significance for tumor therapy and the progress of NETs in tumor metastasis and the relevant mechanisms is summarized.

AbstractPurposeNovel oral anticoagulants are increasingly replacing vitamin K antagonists in the prophylaxis of thromboembolism as they are associated with lower incidence of spontaneous intracerebral hematomas and they do not require drug level monitoring. However, management dilemmas are apparent in patients on novel oral anticoagulants who have developed intracerebral hematomas after traumatic brain injury, since clinical experience with their reversal strategies is limited.MethodsWe retrospectively studied 90 patients with traumatic intracerebral hematomas undergoing treatment at the surgical intensive care unit of the...

Calcification is closely related to in situ thrombosis secondary to plaque rupture in the coronary artery. However, the association between calcification in lower extremity arteries and acute thrombosis has not been assessed. We thus sought to determine whether lower limb arterial calcification (LLAC) was correlated with acute thrombosis in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (PAD).
