Predicting the Safety and Effectiveness of Inferior Vena Cava Filters Study: Design of a unique safety and effectiveness study of inferior vena cava filters in clinical practice

ConclusionsThe PRESERVE Study represents the largest prospective study ever undertaken to investigate real-world outcomes with contemporary use of IVC filters. The investigators await results with the hope that it can improve patient care.

We report a 79 y.o. woman with type II C1INH AAE of the face and tongue and PAPS with recurrent thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). Therapeutically CINH concentrates requiring IV or SQ infusions, and thrombogenic products were excluded. Danazol followed by lanadelumab-flyo with icatibant rescue were selected for therapy.

Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases

r M Abstract OBJECTIVE: Fast track concepts are used to reduce the risk of perioperative and postoperative complications after total knee arthroplasty. INDICATIONS: The described concepts are used for patients with indications for the implantation of a total knee prosthesis. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Contraindications for fast track concepts are aged patients, dementia, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) grade IV and implantation of large revision or tumor prostheses. Contraindications for tranexamic acid are bleeding in the urinary tract, caution in cases of known epilepsy, individual risk assessment ...

In addition to cutaneous, gastrointestinal, hemodynamic, and respiratory symptoms, allergic reactions can induce an acute coronary syndrome in normal or atheromatous coronary arteries and can cause coronary stent thrombosis. Here, we report a case of coronary stent thrombosis due to allergic acute coronary syndrome during anaphylaxis induced by sugammadex in a female patient undergoing general anesthesia. She was emergently treated with percutaneous transluminal coronary balloon angioplasty with catecholamine, vasodilator, and intraaortic balloon support. Knowledge of perioperative allergy-triggered acute coronary syndrome...

The entire IVC filter was covered with a massive thrombus. We first decided to retrieve the IVC filter itself, which was suspected of causing metallic ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewSevere allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis, may trigger acute coronary events. This is known as the Kounis syndrome (KS). The aim of the article is to give an overview of the current knowledge on this syndrome.Recent FindingsAn increasing number of cases of KS are reported in the literature. The involvement of cardiac mast cells seems to be critical in its development, through the release of mediators which may trigger acute events such as coronary vasoconstriction, arteriosclerotic plaque rupture, and coronary stent thrombosis.SummaryKS is a potentially severe condition resulting from the conc...
