  • Iliac Endovascular Intervention Without Procedural Anticoagulation. [Journal Article]
    Vasc Endovascular Surg. 2023 Jan 28 [Online ahead of print]Turan B, Uğur M, … Erkol A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Non-complex lesions of iliac arteries can be managed within a time frame similar to that of lower extremity diagnostic procedures. These interventions can be performed safely without procedural anticoagulation, provided patient receives DAPT. Intervention of in-stent lesions should ideally be avoided without procedural anticoagulation.
  • Tumor embolism and acute arterial occlusion: A systematic review. [Review]
    Surg Open Sci. 2022 Oct; 10:216-222.Hussain SMA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lung cancer and atrial myxoma were the most common sources for tumor embolism. Acute stroke was the most common presentation. This is treated with antiplatelets or anticoagulation as well as chemotherapy and resection of primary tumor. Early revascularisation can prevent severe complications such as death, paralysis, heart failure and limb loss in selected cases of tumor embolism.
  • Cardiac myxoma shedding leads to lower extremity arterial embolism: A case report. [Case Reports]
    World J Clin Cases. 2022 Oct 16; 10(29):10606-10613.Meng XH, Xie LS, … Fang X
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although CM is rare, it may be considered as the source of embolism in patients with acute limb ischemia. Repeated loss of thrombus on the tumor and its surface may lead to repeated embolism of peripheral vessels. Cardiac ultrasound is helpful for early diagnosis. Here, we use this case report to highlight left CM as an important cause of acute limb ischemia and to report our experience in the diagnosis and treatment of lower limb arterial embolism caused by CM detachment.
  • Ascending Aortic Thrombus With Peripheral Embolization. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Sep; 14(9):e28766.Neves NM, Coelho SC, … Horta AB
  • Thoracic aortic mural thrombi are rare in clinical practice, especially in non-aneurysmatic or non-atherosclerotic vessels. They are typically located in the descending aorta, and less frequently in the aortic arch, abdominal aorta, and ascending aorta. Although they are a rare cause of arterial embolization, this is their main manifestation. We present the case of a 48-year-old man, with no card…
  • Acute Pulmonary Embolism: A Review. [Review]
    JAMA. 2022 10 04; 328(13):1336-1345.Freund Y, Cohen-Aubart F, Bloom B
  • CONCLUSIONS: In the US, PE affects approximately 370 000 patients per year and may cause approximately 60 000 to 100 000 deaths per year. First-line therapy consists of direct oral anticoagulants such as apixaban, edoxaban, rivaroxaban, or dabigatran, with thrombolysis reserved for patients with systolic blood pressure lower than 90 mm Hg.

  • Understanding how to accurately and effectively diagnose acute venous thromboembolism (VTE) remains a primary focus in hospitalized patients as the sequela of VTE including deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), are of the most common preventable causes of hospital deaths, and their complications are a source of substantial long-term morbidity.[1] Phlegmasia alba dolens (PAD) a…
