Transposition of external jugular to proximal internal jugular vein for relief of venous thoracic outlet syndrome and maintenance of arteriovenous fistula access for chronic hemodialysis: A new approach.

Transposition of external jugular to proximal internal jugular vein for relief of venous thoracic outlet syndrome and maintenance of arteriovenous fistula access for chronic hemodialysis: A new approach. J Vasc Access. 2019 Jun 24;:1129729819851063 Authors: DeGiovanni J, Son A, Salehi P Abstract We are reporting a case of venous thoracic outlet syndrome with recurrent subclavian vein thrombosis in the setting of an ipsilateral brachiocephalic arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis that was malfunctioning due to the central vein obstruction. The patient also had a concomitant external jugular vein origin stenosis. Given her body habitus and aversion to recovery after traditional first rib resection, we elected for an alternative treatment with an external jugular vein to internal jugular vein transposition with balloon angioplasty of the stenosed external jugular origin segment. The goal of this was to provide simultaneous relief of her outlet obstruction symptoms and salvage her dialysis access with a less invasive technique.

​BY ALI OZCAN, MD; AYUSH GUPTA, MD; ISABEL NEACATO, MD; DAVID DONALDSON, DO; &SHANNA JONES, MDA 17-year-old boy presented to the pediatric emergency department complaining of a right shoulder injury and right clavicular pain for two hours. The pain started after he checked another player into the boards while playing hockey. He had no head injury, loss of consciousness, or other trauma. He took 600 mg of ibuprofen with no relief, so he came to the ED.He had no past medical or surgical problems, and reported his pain as 4/10 over the clavicle region. His review of system was otherwise negative. The patient's vitals we...

ConclusionsKey conditions including upper extremity and lower extremity venous thrombosis, venous aneurysms, Paget-Schroetter syndrome (effort thrombosis), and popliteal vein entrapment syndrome are discussed. Further studies evaluating long-term outcomes on morbidity for current treatment regimens in upper extremity DVT, effort thrombosis, venous thoracic outlet syndrome, and popliteal venous entrapment syndrome are required.

ConclusionsIn our experience, venous bypass combined with thoracic outlet decompression achieves symptomatic relief in approximately 90% of patients with symptomatic upper extremity central venous occlusion, with morbidity limited to the perioperative period.

We report a 32-year-old female worker presenting pain in her left upper-extremity for 7 months. Her left hand became paler and cold when the temperature decreased, and the symptoms could not be eased through rest, physiotherapy and drugs medication. Diagnoses: Compression of left subclavian artery with axillary and brachial arteries thrombosis was confirmed by duplex ultrasound and computed tomography angiography. ATOS caused by cervical ribs was confirmed by medical history, physical examination, and imaging. Interventions: The patients underwent acute thrombolysis and balloon angioplasty. Outcomes: Symptoms of p...

TAYLOR, DO, &DAWN ZELENKA-JOSHOWITZ, DOAn 81-year-old woman with a past medical history of atrial fibrillation, three coronary artery bypass graft surgeries, and a prior cerebrovascular accident presented to the emergency department with right arm pain. Her symptoms had grown worse for two days, and she experienced paralysis about two hours before arrival.Her initial vital signs were a temperature of 97.7°F, a blood pressure of 196/43 mm Hg (left arm), a heart rate of 60 bpm, and a respiratory rate of 18 bpm. She had obvious pallor to her right upper arm with no brachial or radial pulses. She was u...

Publication date: Available online 22 January 2019Source: Surgery (Oxford)Author(s): Frank CT. Smith, Rebecca J. WinterbornAbstractThoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) consists of a group of distinct pathologies arising as a result of compression of structures at the thoracic outlet. The structures at risk are, from anterior to posterior, the subclavian vein, subclavian artery and brachial plexus. Compression or impingement causes venous (VTOS), arterial (ATOS) or neurogenic (NTOS) TOS. NTOS is the most common presentation, caused by compression of the brachial plexus at the scalene triangle or pectoralis minor space. Other comp...

We report two cases of UEDVT secondary to venous TOS with important clinical presentations.Diagnoses:Venous TOS.Interventions:One patient was initially treated conservatively but had a recurrent UEDVT. The second patient had a residual stump from a prior rib resection that was causing compression on the subclavian vein, resulting in recurrent venous symptoms.Outcomes:Both patients achieved significant improvement in their symptoms at 1 year follow-up.Lessons:UEDVTs can be debilitating, and may limit activities of daily living. Surgical decompression may offer significant improvement in quality of life and symptom relief in...
