Right Atrial Thrombus and Challenges in its Management.

Right Atrial Thrombus and Challenges in its Management. J Assoc Physicians India. 2018 Dec;66(12):65-68 Authors: Suratkal V, Ahmed A Abstract Right atrial thrombi is a serious complication of central venous cannulation although incidence is less as compared to left atrial thrombi.1 Right atrial thrombi develops at anastomotic foci or on injured endothelium, implanted devices or foreign bodies including tumours, pacemakers and indwelling right atrial catheters. They have been associated with triple-lumen catheters for chemotherapy, intravenous fluids or parenteral nutrition, pulmonary artery catheters, hemodialysis and implantable venous access devices.2 Right atrial thrombi can have severe consequences leading to pulmonary embolism, septic emboli, mechanical problems of cardiac function or even systemic embolization in case of atrial septal defect or patent foramen ovale. Incident rates of CVC-related thrombosis reported in the literature are inconsistent and vary according to host factors, catheter characteristics, cannulation site and the infusates administered. Thrombi within cardiac chambers are associated with an increased risk of mortality due to their propensity for embolization to the pulmonary vasculature. PMID: 31313553 [PubMed - in process]

Mauter, Yoram OrenAbstractIon exchange membranes (IEMs) often suffer from biofouling, which reduces ion exchange rates and increases energy consumption in water treatment processes, such as electrodialysis, reverse electrodialysis, membrane capacitive deionization, and Donnan dialysis, and in energy devices, such as microbial fuel cells. In the present study, microbial biofilm formation was studied on anion exchange membranes (AEMs) and a cation exchange membranes (CEMs) of the homogeneou...

This study investigated the effects of pasture on nutritional characteristics and volatile components of sheep's milk, yoghurt and cheese produced in central Italy. During two grazing seasons (winter and spring) aliquots of fodder, yoghurt, fresh cheese and the corresponding ripened cheese were taken and analysed in relation to nutritional composition and volatile compounds. The grazing season influenced the chemical composition of the sheep's milk and dairy products, giving the cheese from the spring pasture a significantly higher dry matter content (61.26% vs 52.85%). Spring dairy products were also significantly higher ...

Abstract Paradoxical embolism should be suspected in front of a clinical phenomenon of thromboembolism associated with an anatomical right-to-left shunt. Others potential cardiac sources of thromboembolism must be ruled out. Strokes constitute the most frequent clinical manifestations of paradoxical embolism. Right-to-left left shunts are in connection with intracardiac defects (atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale) or pulmonary arteriovenous malformations. The probability that a discovered PFO is stroke-related can be evaluated by a score. Therapeutic approaches for secondary prevention of recurrent stro...

Illustrated Review with ECG, CXR, Echo Video, Cath Images X-ray chest in atrial septal defect X-ray chest PA view in atrial septal defect with pulmonary hypertension (Click on the image for an enlarged view) The main pulmonary artery (MPA) is grossly dilated. The right pulmonary artery (RPA) is also quite enlarged. Right atrial enlargement is seen as a shift of the cardiac contour to the right of the spine. Pulmonary vascularity is increased and prominent end on vessels (End on) are also seen. Apex is upwards, suggesting a right ventricular configuration. All features suggest a large secundum atrial septal defect with a l...
