The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of aspiration mechanical thrombectomy of massive or submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT), in a single session, in patients with contraindications to thrombolysis.

Authors: Tortuyaux R, Ferrigno M, Dequatre-Ponchelle N, Djelad S, Cordonnier C, Hénon H, Leys D Abstract BACKGROUND: Stroke of unknown time of onset (UTOS) accounts for one-third of contra-indications for revascularization procedures. With modern neuroimaging techniques it is possible to differentiate the core infarcts and the presence of penumbra. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate outcomes in patients with UTOS, treated with intravenous (i.v.) recombinant tissue-plasminogen activator (rt-PA), mechanical thrombectomy (MT), or both. METHOD: We conducted this observational study in patients treated by i.v. rt-PA,...

Authors: Campos J, Brill A Abstract Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a disease with high prevalence and morbidity. It can lead to pulmonary embolism with severe respiratory insufficiency and risk of death. Mechanisms behind all stages of DVT, such as thrombosis commencement, propagation, and resolution, remain incompletely understood. Animal models represent an invaluable tool to explore these problems and identify new targets for DVT prevention and treatment. In this review, we discuss existing models of venous thrombosis, their advantages and disadvantages, and applicability to studying different aspects of DVT path...

AbstractRed blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a marker of variability in red blood cell size, and is routinely reported as part of a patient ’s complete blood count. RDW has been shown to be associated with the prediction, severity and prognosis of pulmonary embolism (PE) in recent studies. The underlying biomolecular mechanism of the relationship of RDW to PE is largely unknown, but is thought to be due to the relationship of RDW with acute inflammatory markers and variations in blood viscosity. This review substantiates that a high RDW level, defined using either an arbitrary number or according to receiver op...

AbstractThere is still uncertainty about the optimal usage of thrombolysis for acute pulmonary embolisms (PEs), leading to a widely varying usage in the real world. The COMMAND VTE Registry is a multicenter retrospective registry enrolling consecutive patients with acute symptomatic venous thromboembolisms (VTEs) in Japan. The present study population consisted of 1549 patients with PEs treated with tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) thrombolysis (N  = 180, 12%) or without thrombolysis (N = 1369). Thrombolysis with t-PA was implemented in 33% of patients with severe PEs, and 9.2% of patients wi...

This study used a descriptive phenomenological approach to explore the lived experience of women diagnosed with VTE in pregnancy and the perinatal period. The study setting was a London, university affiliated hospital. The sample consisted of nine women with deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism in pregnancy or up to six weeks post-partum, diagnosed in the last two years. Semi-structured interviews were undertaken using an interview guide. Interviews were transcribed and analysed using phenomenological descriptive analysis.

ConclusionHuge and dangerous thrombosis inside the heart and superior vena cava can evolve without expected considerable symptoms. Also, detecting the underlying causes of these thromboses sometimes is not feasible by only checking the prevalent known risk factors. Therefore, comprehensive evaluations should be carried out in these patients.
