FJVIS 8. Simultaneous Treatment of Acute Pulmonary Embolism and Deep Venous Thrombosis

The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of aspiration mechanical thrombectomy of massive or submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT), in a single session, in patients with contraindications to thrombolysis.

Conclusions This surge in cosmetic complications occurred in the New Year period. Complications were seen after a wide range of surgical procedures. All patients required an inpatient stay, and two-thirds required surgery with a significant cost burden to the NHS. Patients are unaware of the risks involved, highlighted by the lack of preoperative counseling and follow-up. In addition, this series has highlighted the risks associated with traveling in the perioperative period, with 2 patients investigated for pulmonary embolus.

Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and secondary pulmonary embolism cause approximately 100,000 deaths per year in the United States. Physical immobility is the most significant risk factor for DVT, but a molecular and cellular basis for this link has not been defined. We found that the endothelial cells surrounding the venous valve, where DVTs originate, express high levels of FOXC2 and PROX1, transcription factors known to be activated by oscillatory shear stress. The perivalvular venous endothelial cells exhibited a powerful antithrombotic phenotype characterized by low levels of the prothrombotic proteins vWF, P-selectin, an...

Recent data have raised concerns about the risk/benefit ratio of thrombolysis in non-high risk pulmonary embolism patients due to increased serious bleeding events. Whether cardiac biomarkers could be of help for bleeding risk stratification in this setting remains elusive.

This article will review the utility of abdominal MRI sequences to diagnose lower chest pathology while providing a systematic pictorial review of imaging findings in the lungs, pleura, mediastinum and chest wall. We will discuss the MRI appearance of lung nodules and masses, lung infiltrates, pulmonary infarction, pulmonary embolism, empyema, pleural effusions and thickening, mediastinal lesions and lymphadenopathy, cardiac thrombus and masses, and breast lesions.

Publication date: Available online 6 November 2019Source: JACC: Heart FailureAuthor(s): Milton PackerAbstractBoth obesity and type 2 diabetes are important risk factors for the development of heart failure with a preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), and both disorders increase the risk of systemic thromboembolic events. Traditionally, the risk of stroke has been explained by the strong association of these disorders with atrial fibrillation (AF). However, adiposity and diabetes are risk factors for systemic thromboembolism, even in the absence of AF, because both can lead to the development of an inflammatory and fibrotic ...

This study aimed to characterize the national incidence, mortality, and costs associated with thromboembolism following cardiac surgery.MethodsThe 2005-2015 National Inpatient Sample was used to identify all adult patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting or valve surgery. International Classification of Disease codes were used to identify patients with deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.ResultsOf approximately 3 million patients undergoing cardiac surgery, 1.62% developed deep venous thrombosis and 0.38% pulmonary embolism. Those with deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism were more commonly fe...

Purpose of review To provide an update of vascular malformation syndromes by reviewing the most recent articles on the topic and following the new International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies (ISSVA) 2018 classification. Recent findings This review discusses the main features and diagnostic approaches of the vascular malformation syndromes, the new genetic findings and the new therapeutic strategies developed in recent months. Summary Some vascular malformations can be associated with other anomalies, such as tissue overgrowth. PIK3CA-related overgrowth spectrum (PROS) is a group of rare genetic disord...
