Monday, July 16, 2018 -- AbstractObjectives The aim of this study was to investigate the contemporary trends and comparative effectiveness of adjunctive inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) placement in patients undergoing catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) for treatment of proximal lower extremity or caval deep vein thrombosis. Background CDT is being increasingly used in the management of proximal deep vein thrombosis. Although a significant number of patients treated with CDT undergo adjunctive IVCF placement, the benefit of this practice remains unknown. Methods The National Inpatient Sample database was used to identify all patients with proximal or caval deep vein thrombosis who underwent CDT (with and without adjunctive IVCF placement) in the United States between January 2005 and December 2013. A propensity score–matching algorithm was then used
Thursday, June 14, 2018 -- The role of thrombophilia testing in predicting catheter-related deep vein thrombosis (DVT) after an incident (ie, first) catheter-related DVT in children remains unclear. The present study investigated the association between thrombophilia and recurrent catheter-related DVT. Children with thrombophilia testing, performed according to the clinician’s judgment and the family’s preference, and a history of objectively confirmed catheter-related DVT were included in the study. Recurrent catheter-related DVT after placement of a new catheter was the main outcome. Thrombophilia was classified as minor, major, or none. Analysis was conducted using mixed effect logistic regression. A total of 245 patients had 1,365 catheters inserted; 941 of these catheters were placed after the incident catheter-related DVT. Anticoagulants as treatment or prophylaxis were administered in
Thursday, June 14, 2018 -- Low-dose aspirin used for the prevention of venous thromboembolism following total knee arthroplasty showed similar effects to those seen with high-dose aspirin, according to results published in The Journal of Arthroplasty.Compared to high-dose aspirin in the setting of TKA, “We found out low-dose aspirin showed similar prophylactic effect in terms of venous thromboembolism — both pulmonary embolism [PE] and deep venous thrombosis — and they appeared to have similar complication profiles in terms of bleeding, whether it was wound bleeding or gastrointestinal bleeding, as
Wednesday, March 07, 2018 -- There is a significant association between varicose veins and an increased risk for deep venous thrombosis and possible associations with pulmonary embolism and peripheral artery disease, though results are still unclear.
Friday, March 02, 2018 -- Varicose veins are swollen and twisted veins that could be linked to a higher risk of developing deep venous thrombosis. The new research that explored this link claimed that the risk of developing dangerous blood clots increases five times for … The post Varicose Veins Linked with Higher Risk of Deep Venous Thrombosis appeared first on Bel Marra Health - Breaking Health News and Health Information.
