Percutaneous Transarterial Stent Placement in a Transplant Liver Hepatic Artery Complicated by Angioplasty Balloon Rupture and Fragmentation

Semin intervent Radiol 2019; 36: 133-136 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1688428The incidence of posttransplant hepatic arterial stenosis (HAS) has been reported in 5 to 10% of orthotopic liver transplants and, left untreated, can lead to hepatic arterial thrombosis. Most vascular complications develop less than 3 months after initial transplant, with thrombosis representing over half of all complications. There has been a trend toward minimally invasive, endovascular techniques for treating HAS with angioplasty and stenting. In one review of endovascular therapies for HAS, primary technical success was achieved in 95% of the interventions. Complication rates following endovascular repair of HAS have been reported to be between 0 and 23% in the literature. The main risk factors for complications include tortuosity of the hepatic artery and history of a second liver transplant. Other associated risk factors include female gender, age greater than 60 years, prior history of transarterial chemoembolization, and multiple arterial graft anastomoses. The case presented here is representative of a complication of balloon rupture and fragmentation in a patient undergoing hepatic arterial stent placement post–liver transplant.

Authors: Santoro M, Romano A, Mancuso S, Siragusa S, Di Raimondo F, Martinelli G, Cerchione C Abstract Thrombosis and neoplasms are strictly linked and the diagnosis of a malignancy is a relevant risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE). In particular, between gammopathies, the VTE risk is known to be increased in both monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance and in multiple myeloma, with a 3- and 9-fold increase respectively, when compared to the general population. The risk appears to be further increased in patients treated with imunomodulating drugs, such as thalidomide, especially when in combinatio...

ConclusionDiscontinuing ASA after short-term use for the treatment of patients with T2DM following PCI was not associated with any increased cardiovascular outcomes. Also, discontinuing ASA after short-term use and continuing the use of a P2Y12 inhibitor were somewhat safer in these patients with T2DM. Further research should follow.

This study aimed to analyze the clinical classification and imaging characteristics of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) quantitatively.Methods: A total of 128 patients, who were diagnosed as CCSVI by jugular ultrasound and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography (CE-MRV), were enrolled from May 2018 through May 2019. For the patients with possible extraluminal compression, computed tomography venography (CTV) was applied to estimate the degree of internal jugular venous stenosis (IJVS) and rank the vertebral venous collateral circulation.Results: The causes of extraluminal compression induced IJVS...

AbstractObesity is associated with increased thrombotic risk and hypercoagulability whose main driver is an excess of coagulation factor VIII relative to protein C. The aims of this study were to evaluate the association between factor VIII, protein C, factor VIII-to-protein C ratio and bioimpedance parameters of body composition in obese patients. We analysed blood from 69 obese patients and 23 non-obese healthy controls. Plasma levels of factor VIII, protein C, and factor VIII-to-protein C ratio were correlated with total fat, visceral fat, and muscle mass. Compared to controls, obese patients had significantly higher fa...

ConclusionsAfter the combined therapy of TACE and sorafenib, advanced HCC patients with segmental or subsegmental PVTT showed better survival than those with main PVTT. The nomogram can be applied to identify advanced HCC patients with PVTT who may benefit most from the combination treatment and be helpful for making decision in clinical practice.

ConclusionsThe H-REPLACE trial offers an opportunity to assess clinical outcomes of rivaroxaban versus enoxaparin during the acute phase of ACS and may provide an alternative anticoagulation strategy for ACS patients, who missed the primary reperfusion therapy window and before selective revascularization.Trial RegistrationClinicalTrials.gov; NCT03363035.
