AbstractThe aim of the present study was to identify predictors of outcome and complications in patients with small hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) treated by percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA). Patients with non-previously treated small ( ≤ 3 cm) HCCs who underwent ultrasound (US)-guided percutaneous MWA between July 2016 and January 2019 were included. For each patient, the following variables were registered: age, sex, albumin, platelet count, INR/PT, PTT ratio, total bilirubin, liver status, etiology of liver disease, Child– Pugh classification, tumor dimension, margin, and hepatic segment, tumor...

CONCLUSIONS: The current study identified preoperative characteristics associated with an increased risk of reintervention. No preoperative characteristics had any significant interactions with EVT or surgical reconstruction. PMID: 32224557 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) is a curative surgical option for patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH), a disease resulting from chronic pulmonary thromboembolism. The role of sarcopenia (i.e. low skeletal muscle mass) has been shown to be associated with adverse outcomes in surgical populations, but its significance with PEA remains unknown. We sought to evaluate the association of sarcopenia with measures of CTEPH severity and post-operative hospital outcomes.
We present six cases of outflow graft obstruction (OGO) other than twist of the outflow graft under oral anticoagulation.
Advanced heart failure predisposes patients to intracardiac thrombus (ICT) formation. There is a paucity of evidence examining the impact of pre-existing left atrial (LA) or left ventricular (LV) thrombi on post-operative outcomes in patients undergoing durable LVAD implantation.
Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (CFLVAD) in management of end-stage heart failure continues to expand. Adverse events however remain high. Better understanding of platelet activation in the context of CFLVAD therapy may help reduce bleeding and pump thrombosis (PT) risks to patients.
