The article presents a case study of partial obstruction of the ureter by venous collaterals in inferior vena cava thrombosis. A 21-year-old para 3303 black woman presented with right-sided chest pain, shortness of breath, and hemoptysis of 1 day's duration. Five years before admission the patient had been hospitalized for right lower extremity thrombophlebitis in the immediate postpartum period. Physical examination revealed decreased breath sounds at the right base and a sinus tachycardia of 110 per minute. Laboratory investigation revealed a pO2 of 80 and an elevated LDH. Chest roentgenograms showed a right lower lobe infiltrate.

    Late stent thrombosis (>1 year after implantation) is a recognised complication involving drug-eluting stents. Stent fracture is increasingly being reported as a complication of drug-eluting stent, and in particular sirolimus-eluting stent use. We report the case of very late sirolimus-eluting...

    Objective: Patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) have an increased risk of developing vascular diseases (VD) such as myocardial infarction, stroke and venous thrombosis, which can only partly be explained by traditional risk factors. The role of platelets in this process has not been...

    The correlation between venography and SGP in 41 patients was studied. Fourteen normal subjects were used as a reference. SGP was shown to be very sensitive (97.5%), including proximal and distal DVT, and highly specific (96.4%). After some recommendations for patient positioning and technical...

    We describe a case of extensive mesenteric venous thrombosis with small bowel infarction. Multidetector row computed tomography with curved planar reformation clearly demonstrated the full extents of the mesenteric venous thrombus and the infarcted bowel loops. The length of infarcted segment...
