Timing and Risk Factors for Venous Thromboembolism After Rotator Cuff Repair in the 30-Day Perioperative Period

To analyze the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database to evaluate the incidence of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in patients undergoing rotator cuff repair surgery. In addition, we aim to identify risk factors associated with the development of thromboembolic events following rotator cuff repair.

Authors: Boucly A, Savale L, Vuillard C, Turpin M, Jaïs X, Montani D, Humbert M, Sitbon O Abstract Right ventricular failure (RVF) is a common cause of admission to the intensive care unit and its presence is a major prognostic factor in acute pulmonary embolism (PE) and chronic pulmonary hypertension (PH). RVF results from an incapacity of the RV to adapt to an increase in afterload so it can become critical in acute PE and chronic PH. The presence of RVF in cases of acute PE with haemodynamic instability is an indication for thrombolytic therapy. RVF represents the most common cause of death in chronic PH. F...

ConclusionsModerate APBF is not only a measure to promote pulmonary artery growth and systemic arterial oxygen saturation but also an effective method against endothelial dysfunction and thrombosis. However, moderate APBF is patient-specific and should be determined based on hemodynamic preference that leads to desired patient outcomes, and care should be taken to preventPRSVC and heart load from being too high as well as an imbalance in HFD.

Previously, we have shown the importance of P-selectin in thrombogenesis and thrombus resolution in many preclinical animal models. The role of E-selectin has been explored in rodent models...

Currently, the mechanism of how LEDVT causes PE is unclear. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between the thrombus sites and PE in LEDVT patients.MethodsA retrospective study that included the medical data of 3101 patients aged>18 yea...

The objective of this study was to evaluate complications of Greenfield (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, Mass) stainless steel inferior vena cava (IVC) filters on follow-up computed tomography (CT) imaging and to elucidate associated risk factors.MethodsNinety-three patients with CT studies obtained for other reasons after Greenfield IVC filter placement (2007-2014) were retrospectively studied. Greenfield filters were placed permanently in those with venous thromboembolism and an expected lifelong contraindication to anticoagulation or life expectancy

This study assessed predictors of pulmonary thromboembolism (PE) resolution and their implications for clinical outcome.MethodA total of 150 patients with acute PE diagnosed by computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) were included. All patients received anticoagulant therapy for 3 ‐6 months and were followed‐up for at least 2 years. D‐dimer levels in plasma were assayed at the first admission and during follow‐up.ResultsThe rate of CTPA ‐confirmed PE resolution was 48.67% at 6 months, 68% at 12 months, and 78.67% at 24 months. Thirty‐nine patients had recurrent thrombosis after anticoagulation therapy ...

We present the case of a 76-year-old woman who underwent left upper lobectomy for lung adenocarcinoma. Three days after the surgery, a thrombus was observed in the pulmonary vein (PV) stump. Four months after the surgery, we performed 4D flow MRI, which revealed decreased blood flow, not only in the left superior PV stump, but also over a widespread region around the left atrium-left superior PV junction. 4D flow MRI can clarify the altered hemodynamics underlying thrombus formation.

This study was performed to elucidate the impact of incidentally found pulmonary cement embolism on all-cause mortality. Patients with pulmonary cement embolism diagnosed using chest radiography between 2008 and 2014 at one tertiary referral hospital were included. Their mortality risk was compared to that of randomly selected, age-, sex-, and year-matched patients without pulmonary cement embolism (ratio, 1:10) by using Kaplan –Meier estimates and covariate-adjusted Cox proportional regression analysis. The study included 11 patients with pulmonary cement embolism and 110 patients without pulmonary cement embolism. ...

AbstractApproximately 30 –50% of hemodynamically stable patients presenting with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) have evidence of right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. These patients are classified as submassive PE and the role of reperfusion therapy remains unclear. We sought to identify the circumstances under which cathete r-directed thrombolysis (CDT) would represent high-value care for submassive PE. We used a computer-based, individual-level, state-transition model with one million simulated patients to perform a cost-effectiveness analysis comparing the treatment of submassive PE with CDT followed by anticoagulati...
