21. Pharmacomechanical Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis for Deep-Vein Thrombosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pharmacomechanical Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis for Deep-Vein Thrombosis. The post-thrombotic syndrome frequently develops in patients with proximal deep-vein thrombosis despite treatment with anticoagulant therapy. Pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis (hereafter "pharmacomechanical thrombolysis") rapidly removes thrombus and is hypothesized to reduce the risk of the post-thrombotic syndrome.We randomly assigned 692 patients with acute proximal deep-vein thrombosis to receive (...) not differ significantly between the treatment groups.Among patients with acute proximal deep-vein thrombosis, the addition of pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis to anticoagulation did not result in a lower risk of the post-thrombotic syndrome but did result in a higher risk of major bleeding.

Ultrasound-assisted versus conventional catheter-directed thrombolysis for acute iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis: 1-year follow-up data of a randomized-controlled trial Essentials Acute iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis can be treated with catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT). We performed a randomized trial comparing conventional CDT versus ultrasound-assisted CDT (USAT). Clinical and duplex sonographic outcomes at 12 months were similar in the CDT and USAT groups. In both groups, incidence (...) of postthrombotic syndrome was very low with good quality of life.Background In patients with acute iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis (IFDVT), catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) aims to prevent the postthrombotic syndrome (PTS). Adding intravascular high-frequency, low-power ultrasound energy to CDT does not seem to improve the immediate thrombolysis results but its impact on clinical outcomes at 12 months is not known. Patients/Methods In this randomized-controlled trial, 48 patients (mean age 50 ± 21 years

What Is the Utility of Thrombolytic Therapy for Acute Deep Venous Thrombosis? TAKE-HOME MESSAGE Thrombolytic therapy increases the patency of veins and reduces the likelihood of post-thrombotic syndrome. However, this must be balanced against the increased risk of bleeding.

36. Aplastic anemia and risk of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: A nationwide cohort study (Abstract)

Aplastic anemia and risk of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: A nationwide cohort study Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) constitute venous thromboembolism (VTE), which is not fully known in aplastic anemia (AA). Therefore, we investigated the incidence and risk of VTE in AA patients.We conducted a nationwide cohort study to investigate the risk of DVT and PE in patients with AA. We identified patients with newly diagnosed AA as the AA cohort between 2000 (...) and 2010 from the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD). The initial admission date for AA diagnosis was set as the index date. For each patient with AA, 4 patients without a history of AA, frequency matched by sex, age (every 5-y span), and year of index date, were the non-AA cohort. All patients were followed from the index date to the date of DVT or PE diagnosis, withdrawal from the NHIRD, or the end of 2011. Cox models were used to evaluate the risk of developing DVT and PE in the AA

Deep Vein Thrombosis in Patients with Pulmonary Embolism: Prevalance, Clinical Significance and Outcome Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are considered as similar disease entities representing different clinical manifestations. The objectives of this study were: 1) to determine the prevalence and outcome of DVT in patients with PE; 2) to identify additional risk factors for PE-related unfavorable outcome and 30-day all-cause mortality; and 3) to establish the clinical (...) importance of screening for concomitant DVT.From January 2013 to December 2015, a total of 141 patients with confirmed PE were evaluated. The prevalence and outcome of DVT in patients with PE was determined. Furthermore, the potential risk factors for PE-related unfavorable outcome and 30-day all-cause mortality were also analyzed.The prevalence of concomitant DVT was 45.4%. PE-related unfavorable outcome was observed in 21.9% of all concomitant DVT, with all-cause mortality of 21.9

38. Pharmacomechanical thrombectomy for iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Pharmacomechanical thrombectomy for iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis. Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) occurs in approximately one in 1000 adults every year, and has an annual mortality of 14.6%. In particular, iliofemoral DVT can lead to recurrent thrombosis and post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS), a painful condition which can lead to chronic venous insufficiency, oedema, and ulceration. It causes significant disability, impaired quality of life, and economic burden. Early thrombus removal techniques (...) have been advocated in patients with an iliofemoral DVT in order to improve vein patency, prevent valvular dysfunction, and reduce future complications, such as post-thrombotic syndrome and venous ulceration. One such technique is pharmacomechanical thrombectomy, a combination of catheter-based thrombectomy and catheter-directed thrombolysis.To assess the effects of pharmacomechanical thrombectomy versus anticoagulation (alone or with compression stockings), mechanical thrombectomy, thrombolysis

Diagnosis and Treatment of Lower Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis: Korean Practice Guidelines Lower extremity deep vein thrombosis is a serious medical condition that can result in death or major disability due to pulmonary embolism or post-thrombotic syndrome. Appropriate diagnosis and treatment are required to improve symptoms and salvage the affected limb. Early thrombus clearance rapidly resolves symptoms related to venous obstruction, restores valve function and reduces the incidence of post (...) -thrombotic syndrome. Recently, endovascular treatment has been established as a standard method for early thrombus removal. However, there are a variety of views regarding the indications and procedures among medical institutions and operators. Therefore, we intend to provide evidence-based guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis by multidisciplinary consensus. These guidelines are the result of a close collaboration between interventional radiologists and vascular
