ConclusionsNonthermal techniques are as effective as standard TA in the first year and, in some studies, may be associated with less procedural pain. These data suggest that NTA offers an alternative and safe means to treat superficial venous disease. There is, however, a need for further powered trials with larger numbers of patients and longer follow-up to definitively examine this hypothesis.

Risk factors for venous thromboembolism in individuals undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting
ConclusionsThe overall VTE rate after CABG has been low. However, the condition has been associated with worse 30-day postoperative outcomes and complications. The independent predictors of VTE development included a history of bleeding disorders, congestive heart failure in the 30 days before surgery, and operative time of ≥310 minutes. Understanding these risk factors should aid physicians in the decisions regarding prophylaxis and treatment. (Source: Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Disorders)

Venous thromboembolism complications after endovenous laser ablation for varicose veins and role of duplex ultrasound scan
ConclusionsThe incidence of VTE complications after endovenous laser ablation was low. Furthermore, the value of performing postoperative ultrasound for VTE management seems to be low because the occurrence of severe VTE complications could not be predicted by lower extremity venous ultrasound. Although the perioperative detection of VTE complications by this modality resulted in the early administration of anticoagulant therapy and may have contributed to improved prognosis, the number of those patients was limited.

Significant physician practice variability in the utilization of endovenous thermal ablation in the 2017 Medicare population
ConclusionsUsing a physician-generated metric of performance, the physician use EVTA performed annually per patient is highly variable, and this variability correlated with physician discipline, years in practice, and is more common in physicians who perform ablation the most. Our data show that there is considerable variability in the use of EVTA in Medicare beneficiaries, and that outlier physicians performing a high number of venous ablation procedures per patient are identifiable using a peer-benchmarked practice pattern measure via claims-based data.

A comparison of duplex ultrasound findings after cyanoacrylate embolization versus endovenous laser ablation of the great saphenous vein
ConclusionsAfter CAE of the GSV, our results indicate that the glue cast remains for at least 3 years. Although our results suggest that the glue is broken down over time, this process is much slower than expected. In contrast, after EVLA, the vein tissue is remodeled and is no longer visible with time. In our study, which represents a pragmatic clinical population with a large (median, 9.2 mm) vein diameter, we again demonstrate no statistically significant difference in recurrence rates. Whereas CAE offers an attractive treatment option for GSV incompetence, the glue cast remains for a prolonged time, and longe...

Prevention and treatment of dilator injuries during central venous catheter placement
ConclusionsIn spite of U.S. Food and Drug Administration warnings, dilators are still inserted too far in patients, resulting in devastating hemorrhage. These complications are preventable if proper technique is used. When a catheter is noted to be misplaced, it must not be removed before either a covered stent or thoracoscopy is available; otherwise, uncontrolled hemorrhage into the chest may occur. If a patient becomes unstable in the operating room or immediate postoperative period injury to a major vein must be considered and corrected quickly.

Prospective study comparing the rate of deep venous thrombosis of complete and incomplete lower extremity venous duplex ultrasound examinations
ConclusionsThe majority of patients with incomplete LEVDUS, even those with symptoms or signs suggestive of DVT, do not have a follow-up examination within 30 days of the incomplete study. The rate of DVT detected in initially complete studies was similar to that in patients with follow-up examinations whose initial study was incomplete and did not identify DVT. This suggests that to avoid missing DVT in patients with incomplete LEVDUS studies, quality assurance programs should be initiated to ensure that follow-up LEVDUS studies are performed after an incomplete LEVDUS examination.

ConclusionsApproximately 15% of patients undergoing vein stent placement for chronic PVOO have an antecedent history of superficial venous disease and EVTA. PVOO should be considered and the patient evaluated accordingly if symptoms persisted or recurred after EVTA. Vein stent placement among these patients with PVOO will result in further symptomatic relief, but complete symptomatic relief is not observed in everyone. The algorithm for the management of these patients warrants further investigation. (Source: Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Disorders)
