Fluid state and blood pressure control in patients treated with long and short haemodialysis. (1/1121)

BACKGROUND: Patients treated at the haemodialysis (HD) centre in Tassin, France have been reported to have superior survival and blood pressure (BP) control. This control has been ascribed to maintenance of an adequate fluid state, antihypertensive drugs being required in < 5% of the patients, although it could not be excluded that a high dose of HD regarding removal of uraemic toxins might also have been of value. METHODS: The aim of the study was to assess the fluid state and BP in normotensive patients on long HD (8 h) in Tassin (group TN) using bioimpedance to measure extracellular volume (ECV), ultrasound for determining the inferior vena cava diameter (IVCD), and 'on-line' monitoring of the change in blood volume (BV), and to compare them with normotensive (group SN) and hypertensive (group SH) patients on short HD (3-5 h) at centres in Sweden. ECV was normalized (ECVn) by arbitrarily setting the median ECV (in % of body weight) in SN patients at 100% for each gender, recalculating the individual values and combining the results for male and female patients in each group. RESULTS: The dose of HD (Kt/V urea) was higher for TN patients than for Swedish patients who had a similar Kt/V, whether hypertensive or not. SH patients had significantly higher ECVn and IVCD than TN and SN patients. TN and SN patients did not differ significantly regarding ECVn and IVCD before and after HD. However, in a subgroup of eight TN patients, ECVn was below the range of that in SH and SN patients, due to obesity with a high body mass index. Another subgroup of 14 TN patients had a higher ECVn than most of the SN patients and also higher than the median ECVn in the SH group, without any difference in body mass index, but they were nevertheless normotensive. The fall in BV was greater in SN than in TN patients, presumably due to a higher ultrafiltration rate in SN patients. However, SH patients had a smaller change in BV than SN patients, presumably because their state of overhydration facilitated refilling of BV from the interstitial fluid. CONCLUSIONS: Normotension can be achieved independently of the duration and dose (Kt/V urea) of HD, if the control of post-dialysis ECV is adequate. However, this is more difficult to achieve with short than with more prolonged HD during which the ultrafiltration rate is lower, BV changes are smaller and intradialysis symptoms less frequent. The results in the subgroup of patients with high ECVn at Tassin suggest that normotension may also be achieved in patients with fluid overload provided that the dialysis time is long enough to ensure more efficient removal of one or more vasoactive factors that cause or contribute to hypertension.  (+info)

Caval contribution to flow in the branch pulmonary arteries of Fontan patients with a novel application of magnetic resonance presaturation pulse. (2/1121)

BACKGROUND: A complete understanding of fluid mechanics in Fontan physiology includes knowledge of the caval contributions to right (RPA) and left (LPA) pulmonary arterial blood flow, total systemic venous return, and relative blood flow to each lung. METHODS AND RESULTS: Ten Fontan patients underwent cine MRI. Three cine scans of the pulmonary arteries were performed: (1) no presaturation pulse, (2) a presaturation pulse labeling inferior vena cava (IVC) blood (signal void), and (3) a presaturation pulse labeling superior vena cava (SVC) blood. The relative signal decrease is proportional to the amount of blood originating from the labeled vena cava. This method was validated in a phantom. Whereas 60+/-6% of SVC blood flowed into the RPA, 67+/-12% of IVC blood flowed toward the LPA. Of the blood in the LPA and RPA, 48+/-14% and 31+/-17%, respectively, came from the IVC. IVC blood contributed 40+/-16% to total systemic venous return. The distributions of blood to each lung were nearly equal (RPA/LPA blood=0.94+/-11). CONCLUSIONS: In Fontan patients with total cavopulmonary connection, SVC blood is directed toward the RPA and IVC blood is directed toward the LPA. Although the right lung volume is larger than the left, an equal amount of blood flow went to both lungs. LPA blood is composed of equal amounts of IVC and SVC blood because IVC contribution to total systemic venous return is smaller than that of the SVC. This technique and these findings can help to evaluate design changes of the systemic venous pathway to improve Fontan hemodynamics.  (+info)

Endovascular repair of a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm: a tip for systemic pressure reduction. (3/1121)

A proposed technique for systemic pressure reduction during deployment of a stent graft was studied. A 67-year-old man, who had a descending thoracic aneurysm, was successfully treated with an endovascular procedure. An occluding balloon was introduced into the inferior vena cava (IVC) through the femoral vein. The balloon volume was manipulated with carbon dioxide gas to reduce the venous return, resulting in a transient and well-controlled hypotension. This IVC-occluding technique for systemic pressure reduction may be safe and convenient to minimize distal migration of stent grafts.  (+info)

Acute renal impairment due to a primary aortocaval fistula is normalised after a successful operation. (4/1121)

OBJECTIVES: To study renal function in patients with aortocaval fistula, before and after surgery. DESIGN: Retrospective study. MATERIAL AND METHODS: During the last 22 years nine male patients (median age 67, age range 50-72) with spontaneous aortocaval fistula in combination with AAA were operated upon. This constitutes 4% of the patients with ruptured AAA and 1.5% of all patients with AAA. RESULTS: A preoperative diagnosis of aortocaval fistula was established in three of the nine cases. The medium duration of symptoms prior to surgery was 5 days (range 4 h-14 days). The fistula was combined with an extravasating ruptured AAA in only three patients. Seven of the patients had acute renal insufficiency, with creatinine levels of in median 292 mumol (IQR 218-342). Creatinine declined to 172 mumol/l (IQR 170-313) on the fifth postoperative day in uncomplicated cases and to 86 mumol at discharge. One patient died due to multi-organ failure, whereas the other left hospital well and alive with normal renal function. CONCLUSION: Acute preoperative renal insufficiency due to an aortocaval fistula in patients with AAA is often due to venous congestion, and is normalised after successful surgery.  (+info)

Bypass graft of an occluded inferior vena cava: report of a case with patency at five years. (5/1121)

Venous reconstructive surgery for chronic occlusive disease has evolved slower than its arterial counterpart. Factors intrinsic to the venous system that have been implicated in discouraging experimental and clinical results include enhanced graft thrombogenicity, low velocity of blood flow, and wall collapsibility. 1,2 We present a case of a 24-year-old man with symptomatic occlusion of the inferior vena cava, treated with a prosthetic bypass graft to the supra diaphragmatic cava. The graft was patent 5 years later, and the patient remained asymptomatic.  (+info)

Characteristics of blood flow in intrauterine growth-restricted fetuses with hypercoiled cord. (6/1121)

OBJECTIVE: To clarify the characteristics of fetoplacental blood flow of growth-restricted fetuses with hypercoiled umbilical cord. SUBJECTS: Eight growth-restricted fetuses with hypercoiled cord. METHODS: Flow velocity waveforms of the umbilical cord artery and vein, fetal abdominal aorta and fetal inferior vena cava were analyzed. RESULTS: The resistance index in the umbilical artery in the hypercoiled cases was lower than that in normal fetuses. Early-diastolic reversed flow was observed in the abdominal aorta in some cases. In all cases, umbilical venous pulsation was observed in the entire cord until delivery. In one case, fetal heart failure occurred, resulting in pre-mature delivery. An atrophic type of single umbilical artery was observed in four cases. CONCLUSION: Fetal blood flow disturbance caused by a hypercoiled umbilical cord may be a cause of growth restriction.  (+info)

Abnormal ductus venosus blood flow: a clue to umbilical cord complication. (7/1121)

We report a case of umbilical cord complication causing, fetal hypoxemia and acidemia. At 30 weeks of gestation, the patient was referred because of slightly increased amniotic fluid volume and a non-reactive cardiotocogram. Biometry was appropriate for gestational age. Umbilical artery and fetal aortic Doppler findings were normal, whereas diastolic blood flow velocities in the middle cerebral artery were increased and the ductus venosus showed severely abnormal flow velocity waveforms with reversal of flow during atrial contraction. Since other reasons for fetal hypoxemia could be excluded, careful examination of the umbilical cord was performed. Traction of the hypercoiled umbilical cord due to its course around the fetal neck and shoulders was suspected. Cesarean section confirmed the sonographic findings and fetal blood gases revealed fetal acidemia. This case indicates that investigation of fetal venous blood flow may also help to identify fetal jeopardy due to reasons other than increased placental vascular resistance.  (+info)

Pulmonary embolism caused by acrylic cement: a rare complication of percutaneous vertebroplasty. (8/1121)

A pulmonary embolus of acrylic cement was present in a 41-year-old woman with Langerhans' cell vertebral histiocytosis (LCH) after percutaneous vertebroplasty. Chest radiograph and CT confirmed pulmonary infarction and the presence of cement in the pulmonary arteries. She was treated with anticoagulants, and responded favorably. This rare complication occurred because perivertebral venous migration was not recognized during vertebroplasty. Adequate preparation of cement and biplane fluoroscopy are recommended for vertebroplasty.  (+info)

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine whether a relationship exists between the inferior vena cava diameter (IVCD) or the superior vena cava diameter (SVCD) measured at the point of entry into the right atrium using transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and the central venous pressure (CVP) under different experimental conditions. Design: Prospective study. Setting: University hospital, single institution. Participants: Seventy patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery. Interventions: CVP, lVCD, and SVCD were measured in a 2-dimensional, long-axis midesophageal bicaval view at end-diastole with electrocardiographic synchronization. Data were recorded during suspended ventilation, before and after leg elevation, and at different levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (0, 5, and 10 cmH(2)O). Measurements and Main Results: The relationship between lVCD and CVP had 2 portions: A first (CVP

Central venous pressure (CVP) and right atrial pressure (RAP) are important parameters in the complete hemodynamic assessment of a patient. Sonographic measurement of the inferior vena cava (IVC) diameter is a non-invasive method of estimating these parameters, but there are limited data summarizing its diagnostic accuracy across multiple studies. We performed a comprehensive review of the existing literature to examine the diagnostic accuracy and clinical utility of sonographic measurement of IVC diameter as a method for assessing CVP and RAP. We performed a systematic search using PubMed of clinical studies comparing sonographic evaluation of IVC diameter and collapsibility against gold standard measurements of CVP and RAP. We included clinical studies that were performed in adults, used current imaging techniques, and were published in English. Twenty one clinical studies were identified that compared sonographic assessment of IVC diameter with CVP and RAP and met all inclusion criteria. Despite
Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) of inferior vena cava is a rare and aggressive tumor, arising from the smooth muscle cells in the vessel wall. A large complete surgical resection is the essential treatment. The need of vascular reconstruction is not always mandatory. It s above all to understand the place of the reconstruction with artificial vascular patch prosthetics of vena cave after a large resection of the tumor. We rapport two cases of LMS of inferior vena cava in two women who underwent successful large resection of tumor and lower segment of inferior vena cava. In first case, reconstruction of the inferior vena cava was not performed because of the development of venous collaterals derivation. In the second case reconstruction was done using Dacron interposition graft. The necessity of a large resection in management of primary leiomyosarcoma of vena cave makes sometimes unavoidable the sacrifice of a portion of the vena. Indeed, a better comprehension of the development of venous derivation may render
Contrast echocardiography was used before cardiac catheterisation in 37 patients with atrial septal defect and a left-to-right shunt and in 18 patients with a raised right atrial and ventricular pressure to assess the contrast echo effect in the inferior vena cava. Using two dimensional contrast apical echocardiography we found a negative contrast echo effect within the right atrium in many but not all patients with atrial defect. Contrast echoes entering the inferior vena cava during presystole or early to mid-diastole were detected in patients with heart disease causing raised right atrial and ventricular pressures and also in all patients with atrial septal defect. No contrast echo effect in the inferior vena cava was detected in 10 normal subjects. The sensitivity of this contrast pattern in the inferior vena cava in diagnosing atrial septal defect was 100%. When other conditions causing raised right atrial pressure were excluded, the specificity and predictive accuracy were 100% for both. ...
09 Feb 2016. Renal cell carcinoma can sometimes spread to the inferior vena cava (IVC), the bodys largest vein, posing a threat to the heart and brain.. Robotic nephrectomy for inferior vena cava tumour thrombus has favourable outcomes in selected patients compared with open surgery, which can have a high rate of complications, report surgeons in The Journal of Urology.. Renal vein surgery can often be managed with minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques, but this is not typically advisable for an IVC thrombus (a fibrous clot), which is surgically far more complex with potentially fatal complications that can occur in the course of removing the thrombus and reconstructing the IVC.. The first known procedure using robotic surgery of renal tumours with IVC tumour thrombi was performed in 2008.. Experts from nine leading U.S. medical centers report here on their combined experience of 32 cases since 2008.. Each surgeon performed between one and ten procedures for IVC tumour thrombi which ranged ...

A 46-year-old man presented with swelling of the lower limbs of 1-year duration. The patient was diagnosed Budd-Chiari syndrome, with a web in the inferior vena cava (IVC) in 1996 (A), treated with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with Inoue balloon (B). Examination revealed edema and varicosities of both legs, with ascites (D). Abdominal computed tomography (C) and IVC angiography (E, Online Video 1) showed a calcified web with a pseudoaneurysm. Through the right femoral vein, a 6-F multipurpose catheter was passed into the IVC, the lesion was crossed with a Terumo guidewire (Terumo, Leuven, Belgium), and the web was dilated with a 24-cm3 Inoue balloon (Online Video 2). Post-percutaneous transluminal angioplasty shoot showed a residual lesion with a pseudoaneurysm. A PS-5014 stent mounted on 20/40-mm Atlas balloon (Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc., Tempe, Arizona) was positioned across the web. When the proximal end of the stent was released, the stent migrated into the right atrium (E, ...

N2 - Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters have been used for over five decades as an alternative to anticoagulation therapy in the treatment of venous thromboembolic disease. However, complications associated with IVC filters remain common. Though many studies have investigated blood flow in the IVC, the effects of respiration-induced IVC collapse have not been evaluated. Our hypothesis is that IVC collapse may have an influence on IVC filter performance. Therefore, we herein investigate the hemodynamics in uncollapsed and collapsed IVC configurations using in vitro flow experiments and computational simulations. Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is used to measure the ...

The hydration state of a dialysis patient reflects the balance between fluid overload, normovolemia and underhydration. The goal of the treatment is a fluid balance that is close to normal. The weight after dialysis in which this is achieved is the so called dry weight. However, there is no single parameter to define the adequate dry body weight of a dialysis patient. In the assessment of dry body weight in dialysis-dependent children one must rely on careful and repeated clinical observation. Bioimpedance analysis and inferior vena cava diameter (IVCD) have been evaluated and utilized in adults as noninvasive parameters for the assessment of dry weight and extracellular volume. Since there are no data available for normal children, we performed a prospective study to establish reference standards for a pediatric population (111 females and 95 males, aged 6.8-16 years). We found strong correlations of both resistance (BIA) and IVCD with age, height, weight, and, in particular, with body ...

A congenitally absent Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) is a rare anomaly that is recognised to be associated with idiopathic Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT), particularly in the young. It may not be apparent until later in life. Retrospectively, as discussed in this case, there can be clues indicating the presence of such an anomaly from a young age. However, it is not clear whether early recognition of this condition would affect the prognosis and treatment. A 54 year old gentleman was admitted with 3 weeks of abdominal pain and localised swelling over the right flank. Examination revealed palpable snake-like tortuous, tender lumps on the abdominal wall. Past history revealed chronic non-healing venous leg ulcers, and varicose veins necessitating varicose vein ligation at a very young age. The ulcers eventually needed skin grafting. During this, current admission he was investigated and diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). CT scan, performed to search for intra-abdominal cancer, revealed absence of the
Health problems attributed to the IVC are most often associated with it being compressed (ruptures are rare because it has a low intraluminal pressure). Typical sources of external pressure are an enlarged aorta (abdominal aortic aneurysm), the gravid uterus (aortocaval compression syndrome) and abdominal malignancies, such as colorectal cancer, renal cell carcinoma and ovarian cancer. Since the inferior vena cava is primarily a right-sided structure, unconscious pregnant females should be turned on to their left side (the recovery position), to relieve pressure on it and facilitate venous return. In rare cases, straining associated with defecation can lead to restricted blood flow through the IVC and result in syncope (fainting).[1] Occlusion of the IVC is rare, but considered life-threatening and is an emergency. It is associated with deep vein thrombosis, IVC filters, liver transplantation and instrumentation (e.g. catheter in the femoral vein).[2] ...

Total body water is different in men than in women, and it decreases with aging (Table 21-1). Approximately 50-60% of total body weight is water; two-thirds (40% of body weight) is intracellular, while one-third (20% of body weight) is extracellular. One-fourth of extracellular fluid (5% of body weight) is intravascular. Water may be lost from either or both compartments (intracellular and extracellular). Changes in total body water content are best evaluated by documenting changes in body weight. Effective circulating volume may be assessed by physical examination (eg, blood pressure, pulse, jugular venous distention). Quantitative measurements of effective circulating volume and intravascular volume may be invasive (ie, central venous pressure or pulmonary wedge pressure) or noninvasive (ie, inferior vena cava diameter and right atrial pressure by echocardiography) but still require careful interpretation. ...

The aim of this study was to review our experience in managing renal or adrenal tumors with level III or IV inferior vena cava thrombus by using deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA), and to evaluate survival outcomes. Between September 2004 and March 2016, we treated 33 patients with renal or adrenal malignancy tumor and thrombus extending into the inferior vena cava. Patients were identified according to radiographic records and operative findings. Clinicopathological and operative characteristics were recorded, and comparisons of clinical and operative characteristics through DHCA were performed. A Cox regression model was used to determine predictors of perioperative mortality. Twenty-one out of 33 patients with level III (n = 15), level IV (n = 5), or level II (n = 1) renal or adrenal tumors were treated surgically through cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with DHCA, and 12 patients with level II or III tumors were treated surgically through normothermic CPB. Three complications were observed, and
In the fetus, the ductus venosus (Arantius duct after Julius Caesar Aranzi) shunts a portion of the left umbilical vein blood flow directly to the inferior vena cava. Thus, it allows oxygenated blood from the placenta to bypass the liver. Compared to the 50% shunting of umbilical blood through the ductus venosus found in animal experiments, the degree of shunting in the human fetus under physiological conditions is considerably less, 30% at 20 weeks, which decreases to 18% at 32 weeks, suggesting a higher priority of the fetal liver than previously realized. In conjunction with the other fetal shunts, the foramen ovale and ductus arteriosus, it plays a critical role in preferentially shunting oxygenated blood to the fetal brain. It is a part of fetal circulation. The pathway of fetal umbilical venous flow is umbilical vein to left portal vein to ductus venosus to inferior vena cava and eventually the right atrium. This anatomic course is important in the assessment of neonatal umbilical venous ...
In randomized trials of moderate-intensity warfarin (INR, 2.0 to 3.0) in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation versus untreated control subjects, the typical annual incidence of major bleeding was between 1.0% and 1.5% in the warfarin groups and 0.5% to 1.0% in the control groups.Determining therapeutic protocol for acute and chronic DVT. By Mark J.The least complicated approach is to stop oral anticoagulants and perform elective surgery when the INR has returned to the normal range..

The study also found that 77% of Celect filters migrated out of position. Migration was often associated with vein penetration. Vein penetration is a well-recognized side effect of cone-shaped filters - and especially the Celect. In another study, researchers blamed a stiff leg in the Celect filter for frequent vein penetrations.. The problem is that the walls of the inferior vena cava are incredibly thin because it carries blood under very low blood pressure. The vein also flexes as it pulsates with blood, which is why it is so common for perforations to occur as the filters legs dig into the vein.. Filter tilt is another well-recognized risk of Celect IVC filters. The legs create a relatively stable base, but the hook at the tip floats freely without support. Over time, IVC filters tend to move to a more stable position - often tilting with the hook digging into the wall of the vein. It is a common reason for failed retrievals.. Cook Medical is accused of selling a defective medical device ...
The right atrium is thin. It is composed of an auricle, overlapping the origin of the aorta, and the main portion, called the sinus of the atrium. The openings of the right atrium are: the superior vena cava, the inferior vena cava, and the coronary sinus. The superior vena cava is located in the upper anterior part, bringing blood from the head, neck, upper extremities, and upper part of the thorax. The direction of the blood is toward the ventricular opening. The inferior vena cava is directed upward and medially at the lower part of the atrium. It hugs the diaphragm; the direction of the blood is toward the auricular septum. The orifice of the coronary sinus is situated between the preceding two and a little toward the ventricular opening. From it flows most of the venous blood collected from the heart by the cardiac veins. At its orifice is a fold of the lining membrane of the heart, the endocardium, which is called the valve of the coronary sinus ...
Blood that is lacking oxygen is said to be deoxygenated. This blood has just exchanged oxygen for carbon dioxide across cell membranes, and now contains mostly carbon dioxide. Deoxygenated blood enters the right atrium through the superior vena cava and the inferior vena cava.. Superior means higher, and inferior means lower, so the superior vena cava is at the top of the right atrium, and the inferior vena cava enters the bottom of the right atrium.. From the right atrium, the deoxygenated blood drains into the right ventricle through the right atrioventricular (AV) valve, which is so named because it is between the atrium and the ventricle. This valve is also referred to as the tricuspid valve because it has three flaps in its structure. When the ventricles contract, the AV valve closes off the opening between the ventricle and the atrium so that blood does not flow back up into the atrium.. As the right ventricle contracts, it forces the deoxygenated blood through the pulmonary semilunar ...

The role of leukocytes in deep vein thrombosis (DVT) resolution is incompletely understood. We determined how depletion of lysozyme positive (LysM + ) cells and a switched-off type 1 immune response influences thrombus resolution. DVT was induced in 12-week-old male mice by inferior vena cava (IVC) stenosis. Toxin mediated depletion of myeloid cells improved thrombus resolution in mice with Cre-inducible expression of the diphtheria toxin receptor in LysM + cells. This correlated with decreased CD45 + cells, a population shift of Gr-1 + to Gr-1 - CD11b + myelomonocytic cells (flow cytometry) and an increase in CC-chemokine ligand 2, interleukin-4 and interleukin-10 mRNA expressions ...

Approach and Results-Thrombus was induced in the inferior vena cava of mice. These mice were treated with axitinib (50 mg/kg per day), 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME, 150 mg/kg per day), or vehicle control. Thrombus size, recanalization, neovascularization, inflammatory cell content, and collagen content were assessed after axitinib (days 3, 10, 17) and 2ME (day 10 only) treatment (n=6/group). Axitinib treatment resulted in reduced thrombus resolution (P,0.002) and vein recanalization (P,0.001) compared with vehicle-treated controls. This was associated with inhibition of organization as seen through reduced thrombus neovascularization (P,0.0001) and collagen (P,0.0001) content, as well as reduced macrophage accumulation in the thrombus (P,0.001). Treatment with a second antiangiogenic agent, 2ME, mirrored these findings, with a similar order of magnitude of effect of treatment over vehicle control in all of the parameters measured, with the exception of neutrophil content, which was significantly ...
The anastomosis itself is usually accomplished by a continuous suture of fine, nonabsorbable suture material on atraumatic needles. Two angle sutures of 00000 arterial synthetic material are placed with knots tied on the outside (Figure 14). Both the portal vein and the inferior vena cava are very fragile. It is therefore necessary to use the utmost caution during the suturing process to avoid trauma to these vein walls. This caution should apply not only to the surgeon doing the actual suturing but equally, if not more, to the assistant holding the clamps. A very slight shearing force created by shifting the vascular clamps in relation to each other may easily disrupt a partly completed anastomosis. Leaks from the anastomotic site, particularly along the left side of the anastomosis, may be difficult to expose for subsequent resuturing. The anastomosis is completed (Figures 15 and 16) and the occluding clamps are released one at a time to check the adequacy of the suture line. Although the ...
Inferior Vena Cava Filters Market: Inferior Vena Cava Filters Market is a device implanted in inferior vena cava, the largest vein in the human body.
While vein filters have been in use for years, PRESERVE (Predicting the safety and effectiveness of inferior vena cava filters), is the first large-scale, multispecialty, prospective clinical research trial that will evaluate their real world safety and effectiveness.. The project is overseen by the IVC Filter Study Group Foundation, sponsored jointly by the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) and the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR). All stakeholders came together over a shared concern for the safety and effectiveness of an increasingly popular treatment for life-threatening conditions.. The use of inferior vena cava filters has undergone revolutionary changes through the years and trauma patients are likely to be treated in an emergency setting and may not follow up with their physician to get the implants removed.

Inferior Vena Cava Syndrome is a pathological condition which is characterized by obstruction or blockage of the inferior vena cava vein which transports blood from the lower extremities to the heart. This condition is mainly seen in pregnant females and the vein gets obstructed as a result of the growing fetus.
The study led by Dr. Paul Stein analyzed more than 2 million patients with pulmonary embolism who received vena cava filters at short-stay hospitals throughout the United States between 1999 and 2008. The data was obtained from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample. The researchers tried to find out the in-hospital all-cause fatality rate according to the use of vena cava filters among the patients. The researchers observed that the in- hospital case fatality rate was marginally lower in stable patients receiving a vena cava filter (7.2% compared to 7.9% in those who did not receive the filter). In case deep venous thrombosis was discovered in stable patients, vena cava filters did not have any impact on the fatality rate. However, if thrombolytic therapy was also administered in adjunction to vena cava filter in stable patients, there was a definite improvement in the fatality rate (6.4% compared to 15% in those who did not receive thrombolytic therapy along with vena cava filter). In unstable ...
BACKGROUND: Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter insertion is a commonly performed procedure for indications such as recurrent pulmonary emboli or contraindication to anticoagulation. Symptomatic duplication of the IVC is exceedingly rare with only a handful of cases being described in the literature. AIM: We report an unusual case of a patient with symptomatic duplication of the IVC. RESULT: A 53-year-old woman presented at our hospital for resection of a cerebral metastasis from a non-small cell lung cancer following a recent diagnosis of bilateral lower limb deep venous thrombosis. This required perioperative reversal of anticoagulation and IVC filter insertion. Conventional venography performed during filter insertion documented the existence of a duplicated IVC. CONCLUSION: We present a case of a symptomatic duplication of the IVC requiring filter insertion. We review the developmental anatomy of the IVC along with the diagnostic findings and management strategies available. ...
Introduction: Inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) are recommended in patients with venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) and a contraindication to anticoagulation therapy. Observational studies of IVCF have often failed to adjust for immortal time bias, which is the period of follow-up time before the IVCF is placed during which death cannot occur in the intervention arm but can occur in the control group.. Methods: Hospitalized patients with VTE plus a contraindication to anticoagulation were identified in the State Inpatient Databases from California (2005-2011), Florida (2005-2013), and New York (2005-2012). Propensity score matching was used to adjust for baseline differences in patients receiving IVCF and those who did not and was performed with and without adjustment for immortal time bias via exclusion of matched pairs where the control patient died prior to the day of filter placement in their matched partner. Multivariable Cox models were constructed with IVC filter use as a time-fixed ...

N2 - Objectives: Geographic variability exists in the use of IVC filters (IVCF). We hypothesized that variation in IVCF use is incompletely explained by variation in the prevalence of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) and may result from different practice patterns regarding prophylactic IVCF use. We characterize geographic variation in IVCF use at the state level and evaluate its association with clinical factors, patient demographics, and the medicolegal environment. Methods: Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project State Inpatient Database records were accessed to identify 230,445 IVCFs placed ...

While most IVC filters are made of non-ferromagnetic materials, there are a few types that are weakly ferromagnetic. Accordingly, IVC filters fall under the MRI Safe and MRI Conditional categories depending mostly on type of material used during construction. Rarely will one find an MRI Not Safe IVC filter, as most of the steel, and other ferromagnetic material devices have been discontinued via the FDA. IVC filters are attached to the vena cava via hooks on their ends. Some are compression springs, which compress outward onto the side wall of the vena cava; however, they still have small hooks that retain their location. These hooks aid in the anchoring and healing process, as they allow the tissues to ingrow around them, securing the IVC in place. It is unlikely, then, after 4 to 6 weeks of healing, that an MRI of 1.5 tesla, up to 3 tesla, will cause any level of dislodging to occur to the IVC filter. Studies of MR examination of both animals and humans, with implanted IVC filters, have not ...
Recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with a tumor thrombus (TT) extending into the inferior vena cava (IVC)/right atrium (RA) is generally regarded as a terminal-stage condition and there is no worldwide consensus on the proper management of this situation. In the present study, we report the efficacy of hypofractionated radiotherapy (HFRT) as a salvage treatment for recurrent HCC with IVC/RA TT. We retrospectively reviewed 75 HCC patients with an IVC/RA TT who were referred for HFRT at three institutions between 2008 and 2016. 57 cases had a TT located in the IVC (IVC group), and 18 cases had a TT located in the IVC and RA (IVC + RA group). HFRT was designed to focus on the TT with or without the primary intrahepatic tumors. In all cases, the TT completely disappeared (CR) in 17 patients (22.7%), 55 patients (73.3%) had a partial response (PR), and 3 patients (4.0%) had a stable disease (SD). There were no cases of progressive disease (PD). The 1-, 2-, and 3-year overall survival rates of the 75
A biopsy proven membranous nephropathy female came to the hospital with fever and bilateral lumbar pain. There were no urinary or respiratory symptoms. The workup revealed a creatinine of 1.4 mg/dL, low serum albumin and 3+proteins in the urine. Her erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) was raised and her serology showing a C3 and C4 of complements of 2.24 and 0.41 respectively. Notably, antinuclear antibody (ANA) was strongly positive, anti-dsDNA was negative. Ultrasonography showed slight echogenic kidneys with a hematoma seen in her left kidney. Then a CT scan of chest, abdomen and pelvis was planned that revealed enlarged and swollen kidneys having indistinct cortico-medullary junction and a partial thrombus in the inferior vena cava (IVC) and the renal veins. Antiphospholipid antibodies serology and D-dimer levels were unremarkable. She was given streptokinase infusion that resulted in recovery of her renal functions and later on kept on lifelong warfarin.

Since November 2010, when the FDA created a series of defined questions in order to assess the safety and efficacy of retrievable inferior vena cava filters, discussions have been ongoing between them, the Society of Interventional Radiology and the Society for Vascular Surgery.. According to Johnson, the FDA issued a safety communication on 9 August 2010, suggesting that retrievable inferior vena cava filters should be removed when they are no longer required. The communication was issued after a perceived increase in filter-related complications, according to the MAUDE (Manufacturer and user facility device experience) database. The complications outlined by MAUDE were: caval perforation, filter fracture, migration and embolization.. In Johnsons opinion, randomised controlled trials were inadequate to address the complicated landscape of using filters and that registries (such as MAUDE) have no denominator. He suggested that a prospective study with definitions such as study population, ...
The health risks posed by retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filters have long been the subject of much scrutiny. IVC filter lawsuits allege that companies like C. R. Bard and Cook Group released defectively designed IVC filters onto the market without adequately testing for dangerous side effects. In legal battles, IVC filter manufacturers have frequently stated that the devices health risks are outweighed by their potentially life-saving benefits. However, recent literature has questioned whether retrievable IVC filters confer any benefit at all. Many have started to wonder whether IVC filters from companies like Bard and Cook are all risk and no reward.. IVC filters have been around for many decades. The devices first came into use in the late 1960s as a way to prevent blood clots in patients with vascular conditions. However, it was not until the early 2000s that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) created guidelines for the design and use of retrievable IVC filters. Retrievable ...
The lawsuit was filed by Julie D., a woman from Missouri who was implanted with the Cook Günther Tulip® Vena Cava Filter on June 2, 2014 at University Hospital in Columbus.. The Günther Tulip was approved for retrieval in 2003. It is implanted in the largest vein in the body - the inferior vena cava (IVC) - where it catches blood clots to prevent pulmonary embolisms.. The walls of the vena cava are incredibly thin because the vein carries blood under low blood-pressure. When the needle-like legs of an IVC filters dig into the vein, they sometimes puncture through.. The problem is that a number of recent studies have found increasing rates of perforation the longer the Tulip remains implanted in a patient.. In 2013, a study of 160 patients with the Tulip found that 69 (43%) perforated through the vena cava within an average follow-up of 14 months.. In 2012, another study of 50 patients with the Günther Tulip and Celect IVC Filters found that 86% developed a perforation within 2.3 years. ...
We report 3 cases of retrievable IVC philtres in pregnancy and performed a systematic review of the literature to determine the indications, success and complications rates for these devices in pregnancy.. A literature search of PubMed and Medline was conducted using the terms IVC philtre and pregnancy.. In our unit, 2 women had peripartum pulmonary emboli (PE) and the third woman had an iliac vein thrombosis and recurrent antepartum haemorrhage. Insertion of philtres was uncomplicated but only one was retrieved post delivery.. A total of 48 patients were identified from 20 publications (51 including our patients). Indications for insertion included extensive deep vein thrombosis (DVT) (39), PE (7), recurrent thrombosis (1), contraindication to anticoagulation (1) and unknown (3). Complications at insertion occurred in 2 patients. Two philtres were not removed, one philtre was repositioned and outcome was unclear in 5. Therefore 37/40 were retrieved successfully (81%). Retrieval failed in 8 ...

Fig. 379. Diagrams of probable fetal and postpartum circulations through the heart in the mammal. (A) Fetal circulation. Oxygenated blood passes through umbilical vein, to liver. Passing through the liver by means of the ductus venosus it gathers blood from the liver veins and empties into the inferior vena cava through the hepatic vein. Within the inferior vena cava it mixes with non-oxygenated blood from the posterior part of the body. Reaching the right atrium it passes across the atrium through the foramen ovale and into the left atrium and from thence into left ventricle. The blood from the superior vena cava crosses to one side of the blood current from the inferior vena cava in the right atrium on its way to right ventricle. Most of the blood from the right ventricle courses through the ductus arteriosus into the descending aorta. A small amount goes to the lungs via the pulmonary arteries. (B) Circulation after birth. Observe there is no passage of blood from the right atrium into the ...
The right renal vein, along with the left renal vein, makes up the renal veins that drain the kidneys. They attach the inferior vena cava to the kidney. The right renal vein is smaller than the left. It begins at the hilum of the kidney where three to six tributaries meet. These veins are behind the renal arteries. This goes against most other relationships between veins and arteries in the abdomen. Continue Scrolling To Read More Below... ...
Dr. William Kuo isnt exactly a household name outside of the medical profession, but for patients who have been injured and their lives endangered by IVC (inferior vena cava) filters, Dr. Kuo represents their best hope for survival. Dr. Kuo is also speaking out about the dangers of this device, which has been implicated in over three dozen patient deaths and hundreds of serious internal injuries.. The IVC filter, a product of Bard Medical, is a small, spider-like, metal device designed to be implanted in a patients primary artery, the inferior vena cava. Its purpose is to trap blood clots that may travel up from the lower extremities and prevent them from entering the heart and the respiratory system. In most cases, the placement is meant to be temporary; they are primarily used for patients who have undergone joint surgery and may be in danger of blood clots that can cause a pulmonary embolism.. There have been two serious problems with removable IVC filters. In the first place, they are ...
Primary and recurrent retroperitoneal tumors can involve the aortoiliac vasculature. They are often considered inoperable or incurable because of the locally advanced nature of the disease or the technical aspects involved in safely resecting the lesion. Safe resection of these lesions requires experience and extensive preoperative planning for success. A retrospective database review of 76 patients with retroperitoneal tumors identified tumors involving major vascular structures in the abdomen and pelvis undergoing resection of tumor en bloc with the aortoiliac vasculature. Preoperative planning and intraoperative technical maneuvers are reviewed. Patients were followed until time of this report. Four patients with retroperitoneal tumors involving the aortoiliac vessels underwent surgery: two patients with sarcoma (one primary and one recurrent), one with metastatic renal cell carcinoma, and one with a paraganglioma. All patients had resection of the aorta and vena cava or the iliac artery and ...
For people with blood clotting issues, the IVC filter, or inferior vena cava filter, can be a help. This medical device is implanted in patients who dont tolerate anti-coagulants or blood thinners.. The filters are designed to prevent clotting, but increasingly they are drawing attention for the dangers they present to patients. There are numerous lawsuits against the device makers by injured patients and the Food and Drug Administration has issued advice to doctors on monitoring and removal of IVC filters. So should you have yours removed? Lets look at what the FDA says.. IVC Filter Adverse Effects. About two year ago, the FDA updated its guidance on IVC blood filters. The authority said it received reports of adverse effects from the small cage-like devices that are implanted in the inferior vena cava to regulate blood flow.. Complaints included device migration, meaning that the filter moved within the body, and filter fracture, where a part of a filter broke off and migrated. The FDA ...
The inferior vena cava (IVC),/u,, also empties into the right atrium of the heart and .  The inferior vena cava runs posterior, or behind, the abdominal cavity. This vein also runs alongside the right vertebral column of the spine and unlike the SVC contains a valve.

RADIOLOGY: VASCULAR: Case# 32925: IVC DISSECTION SECOND. TO MVA. This is a 27 year old male who is S/P MVA. CT has been requested to evaluate intra-abdominal trauma. There is a large amount of ascites throughout the abdomen and pelvis. There is a large amount of high attenuation fluid within the anterior pararenal space on the right, extending down into the pelvis. At the level of the right renal vein, there appears to be disruption of the inferior vena cava, with surrounding hematoma. There is a questionable area of intraluminal thrombus just below this. The remainder of the inferior vena cava below this level, is markedly decreased in caliber, crescentic in shape and displaced to the left. Immediately above the iliac confluence, the IVC abruptly resumes a normal shape, but is moderately dilated. Both kidneys demonstrate normal enhancement and excretion. Both ureters are patent and intact down to the bladder. There is a significant amount of fluid around the bladder within the pelvis, especially
To treat chronic kidney, kidney transplantation is the most efficient way especially when donor is alive, in such a way that survival tie can be increased in the best possible way. In this regard, major problem is short renal vein resulting in thrombosis. To elongate the vein length, there is a technique that we report in this study. The technique of interest is this that at the time of dissection of venae cava and renal vein, it should be tried to put vein of vena cava 1cm above and 1cm below of renal vein. Also, kidney must be placed in right iliac of kidney done. Patients discharged in good condition after two days. In our cases, there was no tension in the site of anastomosis showing safe condition. Longitudinal flap of vena cava accompanied by a suitable cuff can increase about I cm length of renal vein.. ...
According to hundreds of lawsuits involving IVC filters, one of the serious problems with the Inferior Vena Cava filter is they were designed to be a temporary measure - yet are left inside of patients for months, and even years. The worst part of it is that the longer they are left in a patients body, the more difficult they are to remove - and the greater the likelihood that the device will fracture and/or migrate, causing serious injury.. Here is one example: a Canadian patient received an IVC filter following joint surgery in order to prevent a blood clot from traveling to his heart and lungs. He was unable to handle anticoagulant medication, so his physician deemed this to be the best option. The device is designed to remain in the artery for no more than four to six weeks, or as soon as the danger of an embolism from clotting has passed. However, the IVC filter remained in his body for eight months. By that time, the filter had lodged in the wall of a vein, nearly puncturing his ...
A vascular filter comprises an emboli-capturing portion having a set of helical filter-wires joined at a central region and extending in a given direction along the blood vessel in a diverging relationship to the axis of the filter, the wires terminating in free ends constructed to engage the walls of said vessel. A major mid-portion of the length of the free ended wires are of generally helical form, cooperatively related to form an effective emboli capturing array. Anchoring is accomplished by a separate assembly formed of struts and anchoring devices. A parallelogram supporting strut assembly and other means for providing linear engagement with the wall of the vena cava are shown. The parallelogram structure is shown to have filter capability by itself as well.
