• Occlusion
  • The local fibrinolytic activity generated in the leg and arm veins during venous occlusion (fibrinolytic capacity) and the systemic fibrinolytic activity were measured at intervals in 11 patients after fracture of the femoral shaft and in 11 patients after acute myocardial infarction. (bmj.com)
  • Catheter
  • Asymptomatic femoral DVT occur in 5 % of electrophysiological studies and right-heart radiofrequency catheter ablations, particularly when large sheaths are inserted for a longer period. (springer.com)
  • Therefore, in addition to standard anticoagulation therapy, the latest international guidelines recommend catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) as first-line treatment for patients with ilio-femoral DVT and low bleeding risk. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Another catheter is inserted into the femoral vein to allow venting of the fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Although ultrasound-enhanced thrombolysis is now widely used to treat ilio-femoral DVT or high-risk pulmonary embolism, it is currently not known if this technique is superior to standard CDT. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • grafts
  • Newer tissue and synthetic grafts in canine femoral veins Hiratzka Loren F et al. (naver.com)
  • This case illustrates that selective preservation of infected prosthetic grafts anastomosed to a peripheral vein may be a simple and improved method to treat these complications. (naver.com)
  • common
  • The practice of delivering recreational drugs intravenously using the femoral vein is relatively common amongst injecting drug users (IDUs). (wikipedia.org)
  • The case is here reported of a footballer with a traumatic false aneurysm of the common femoral vein which was initially misdiagnosed as an arterial pseudoaneurysm. (bmj.com)
  • A false aneurysm 1 × 2 cm in size was detected on the common femoral vein. (bmj.com)
  • vessels
  • The venules feed into larger veins, which eventually merge into the superior and inferior vena cavae, large vessels that consolidate the blood flow from the head, neck, and arms and from the trunk and legs, respectively (see also circulatory system circulatory system, group of organs that transport blood and the substances it carries to and from all parts of the body. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • vena
  • Fifteen years experience with spiral vein graft for obstruction of superior vena cava caused by benign disease. (naver.com)
  • thin-walled
  • The vein is modeled as a hyperelastic, incompressible, thin-walled cylinder and the membrane stresses are computed using strain energy. (asme.org)
  • acute
  • Subjects: total of 20 patients (10 in each study group) of 18-75 years of age with acute, symptomatic, objectively confirmed ilio-femoral DVT and a low bleeding risk. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Fibrinolytic capacity of arm and leg veins after femoral shaft fracture and acute myocardial infarction. (bmj.com)
  • tissue
  • In both groups the fibrinolytic capacity of the leg veins and the systemic fibrinolytic activity were significantly reduced two days after the onset of tissue injury. (bmj.com)
