Tumor in the veins: an abdominal perspective with an emphasis on CT and MR imaging

AbstractEndovenous tumor thrombus in abdomen should be accurately diagnosed as it is a significant finding that may change medical and surgical treatment approaches. As some underlying reasons for endovenous tumor thrombi are relatively rare and imaging findings may be quite subtle, they can be easily overlooked which may have important clinical consequences. In this paper, we described the various imaging aspects of endovenous tumor thrombi originating from various tumor types in different venous structures of the abdomen.

Bevacizumab, an anti-vascular endothelial growth factor monoclonal antibody, has recently been widely used in patients with recurrent breast cancer as a first-line chemotherapeutic agent. Heart failure or arterial thromboembolism has been reported as a ...

Authors: Sakai R, Ozaki K, Yamaguchi Y, Kubota N, Takano T, Okubo T, Kimura S, Hoyano M, Yanagawa T, Kashimura T, Minamino T Abstract We herein report a case of pulmonary artery sarcoma (PAS) in a 64-year-old woman. She was admitted to our hospital because of massive genital bleeding from endometrial cancer. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed a left pulmonary artery mass and deep vein thrombosis. She underwent anticoagulant therapy for one year. However, the mass lesion gradually expanded. 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT showed a positive uptake of FDG by the mass...

Atrial fibrillation is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in the general population. In western countries with aging populations, atrial fibrillation poses a significant health concern, as it is associated with a high risk of thromboembolism, stroke, congestive heart failure, and myocardial infarction. Thrombi are generated in the left atrial appendage, and subsequent embolism into the cerebral circulation is a major cause of ischemic stroke. Therefore, patients have a lifetime risk of stroke, and those at high risk, defined as a CHA2DS2-VASc2 (congestive heart failure, hypertension, age>75 years, diabetes mel...

CONCLUSIONS: PNH should be considered during differential diagnosis among patients with idiopathic PVT. Small PNH clones can be detected in PVT patients that we cannot clearly determine its relationship with PVT. We need furthermore studies to explore the potential role of this finding.

AbstractEdoxaban, a direct factor Xa inhibitor, is the latest of the non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs). Despite being marketed later than other NOACs, its use is now spreading in current clinical practice, being indicated for both thromboprophylaxis in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) and for the treatment and prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE). In patients with multiple conditions, the contemporary administration of several drugs can cause relevant drug-drug interactions (DDIs), which can affect drugs ’ pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Usually, all the NOACs are ...
