Emergency vascular conditions commonly seen by all of us are those of vascular trauma of various types, intra-arterial embolic occlusion, the intra-arterial thrombosis (with or without concomitant venous thrombosis), the venous thrombosis not responding to anticoagulation with early pulmonary embolization, and finally, the condition of phlegmasia cerula dolens. In all these cases it is essential to achieve an early diagnosis and to institute corrective and reconstructive treatment as rapidly as possible. Subsequent postoperative complications such as edema and fascial compression must be treated swiftly. Postoperative observation in the critical care unit by trained personnel is essential.

    An 8-day-old infant was admitted to a paediatric intensive care unit with severe hypernatraemic dehydration. An MRI brain was performed which revealed extensive venous sinus thromboses. This is a recognised but rare complication of hypernatraemic dehydration and the importance of early detection...

    The objective of this study was to prospectively determine the incidence of venous thrombosis (VT) in the upper limbs in patients with peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC). We prospectively investigated the incidence of VT in the upper limbs of 26 patients who had PICC inserted. The...

    A 63-year-old previously healthy female on no medications was admitted in the emergency department due to pain in the left flank. Initially, she was hemodynamically stable. During the initial examination she became unstable. An ultrasound examination showed a large retroperitoneal hematoma, and...

    Operative venography in 164 cases has been of use in providing information and knowledge about the cases under treatment justifying its use and providing information of value in the comprehension of the problems involved. The advantages of operative venography are the selective precise studies...

    Intravascular thrombosis may occur in a number of conditions, apparently for different reasons. There seems to be no common causal denominator. Changes in the vascular endothelium and quantitative or qualitative changes in the platelets apparently occur more commonly than do other changes in...

  • THROMBOSIS AND RECANALIZATION OF VEINS USED AS VENOUS GRAFTS. Dale, W. Andrew // Angiology;Dec1961, Vol. 12 Issue 12, p603 

    Focuses on the high incidence of recanalization of veins which thrombosed early in the postoperative where delayed phlebography or casual examination of autopsy material would fail to indicate the earlier thrombosis which later resulted in a lumen by the process of recanalization. Incidence of...
