Impact of inferior vena cava ligation on mortality in trauma patients

Publication date: Available online 9 September 2019Source: Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic DisordersAuthor(s): Saskya Byerly, Vincent Cheng, Anastasia Plotkin, Kazuhide Matsushima, Kenji Inaba, Gregory A. MageeAbstractObjectiveInferior vena cava (IVC) injuries are potentially lethal and require prompt intervention. Repair of complex IVC injuries may require the use of a prosthetic graft or a complicated panel or spiral vein graft reconstruction to avoid the need for ligation. Collateral venous drainage may be sufficient to allow acceptable results from IVC ligation; however, previous studies have suffered from low numbers and have differing results. The aims of this study were to assess the outcomes of isolated IVC injuries overall and to compare IVC ligation with repair.MethodsPatients in the National Trauma Data Bank from 2007 to 2014 with an IVC injury were evaluated. Isolated IVC injury was defined as patients with nonvascular Abbreviated Injury Scale scores

In conclusion, older adults exhibited decreased markers of UPR activation and reduced coordination with autophagy and SC-associated gene transcripts following a single bout of unaccustomed resistance exercise. In contrast, young adults demonstrated strong coordination between UPR genes and key regulatory gene transcripts associated with autophagy and SC differentiation in skeletal muscle post-exercise. Taken together, the present findings suggest a potential age-related impairment in the post-exercise transcriptional response that supports activation of the UPR and coordination with other exercise responsive pathways (i.e....

Conclusions Using a large national surgical database, only 2.4% of women undergoing gynecologic cancer surgery had a concomitant POPUI procedure. Our data suggest that postoperative complications may not increase when concomitant surgery for POPUI is done at the time of gynecologic cancer surgery.

Publication date: Available online 19 August 2019Source: Journal of Cardiology CasesAuthor(s): Ryosuke Tani, Yoichi Yamashita, Keiji Matsunaga, Waki Toyama, Kaoru Mantani, Takahisa Noma, Taiko Horii, Tetsuo MinaminoAbstractWe often observe patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) presenting with both venous and arterial thrombi. Anticoagulant therapy is effective for venous and peripheral arterial embolisms in these patients; however, it has opposite effects when applied for thoracic aortic mural thrombosis because of the risk of new arterial embolisms. Recently, thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has been us...

Authors: Niwa K Abstract In adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), residua and sequellae after initial repair develop late complications such as cardiac failure, arrhythmias, thrombosis, aortopathy, pulmonary hypertension and others. Acquired lesions with aging such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, obesity can be negative influence on original cardiovascular disease (CVD). Also, atherosclerosis may pose an additional health problem to ACHD when they grow older and reach the age at which atherosclerosis becomes clinically relevant. In spite of the theoretical risk of atherosclerosis in ACHD due to above mentioned...

Pulmonary endothelial damage has a negative impact on the maintenance of normal pulmonary vascular function. Such damage results in delayed thrombus dissolution and vascular remodeling in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). Although endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) may be incorporated into neovasculature during vascular repair, their function in CTEPH remains unclarified, especially under the augmentation of soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) activity.

We read with great interest the article by Ma and colleagues1 about elevated gradient after mitral valve repair and the effect of surgical technique and relevance of postoperative atrial fibrillation. Elevated transmitral gradient may cause not only delayed atrial fibrillation but also all other complications associated with pure mitral stenosis, such as left atrial enlargement, thromboembolism, secondary pulmonary hypertension, and delayed right heart failure. In the article of Ma and colleagues,1 the elevated pressure gradient after mitral annuloplasty was due to 2 main surgical problems: the use of small, complete, semi...

This study sought to investigate what could be learned from how these men have fared. The men were born in 1925-1928 and similar health-related data from questionnaires, physical examination, and blood samples are available for all surveys. Survival curves over various variable strata were applied to evaluate the impact of individual risk factors and combinations of risk factors on all-cause deaths. At the end of 2018, 118 (16.0%) of the men had reached 90 years of age. Smoking in 1974 was the strongest single risk factor associated with survival, with observed percentages of men reaching 90 years being 26.3, 25.7, ...
