We have set up this channel to give you convenient access to the latest research in the area of Cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT) by providing a customised feed of abstracts of clinical papers published on PubMed. The combination of search terms providing the feed below is 'cancer AND thrombosis'. This channel is sorted chronologically. To see more information about a given paper, click the ‘Preview Abstract’ button below, and this will reveal an expanded abstract.
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: Sport-related vascular trauma is an important consequence of increased physical activity. Repetitive, high-intensity movements predispose athletes to vascular disease, including arterial pathology, by exerting increased pressure on neurovascular structures. This is an important source of morbidity in an otherwise young and healthy population. Arterial pathology associated with repetitive trauma is often misdiagnosed as musculoskeletal injury. This...
BACKGROUND: Inferior mesenteric arterioportal fistula (APF) is rare as only 35 case reports in the literature. We herein presented a case of simultaneously double cancer in the rectum and stomach with inferior mesenteric APF, which is the first case report by searching using PubMed. Combination of interventional embolization and surgical operation seemed to be optimal treatment for avoiding postoperative complications and the curability.
CASE PRESENTATION: A...
BACKGROUND: Proper risk stratification of patients for early mortality after cancer-associated thrombosis may lead to personalized anticoagulation protocols. Therefore, we aimed to derive and validate a scoring system to predict early mortality in this population. To this end, we selected patients with active cancer and thrombosis from the Computerized Registry of Patients with Venous Thromboembolism database.
METHODS: The main outcome was all cause mortality within...
OBJECTIVES: To define the association of non-adenocarcinoma pancreatic cancer (NACPC) as a risk factor for post-operative cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT).
METHODS: We conducted analysis of prospectively collected data of pancreatic cancer surgery. Randomly collected NACPC cases were matched 1:3 to adenocarcinoma cases (ACPC). Variables included comorbidities, demographics, cancer extension, and pre-operative Khorana score (KRS). Primary outcome was CAT, which...
Cystathionine β-synthase (<i>CBS</i>) deficiency is a recessive inborn error of metabolism characterized by extremely elevated total homocysteine (tHcy) in blood. Patients diagnosed with CBS deficiency have a variety of clinical problems in including dislocated lenses, osteoporosis, cognitive and behavioral issues, and a significantly increased risk of thrombosis. Current treatment strategies involve a combination of vitamin supplementation and restriction of foods...
CASE: We report on a patient with heterozygous prothrombin G20210A mutation (PTM) and a history of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after knee arthroscopy, who was undergoing hip arthroscopy. This common mutation has an overall prevalence of 2.0% and results in a 280% to 420% likelihood of thrombosis compared to patients without the mutation.
CONCLUSIONS: Hip arthroscopy is associated with a low risk of VTE with currently no guidelines for thromboprophylaxis. Patients...
Estrogen-progestin therapy was previously considered as the standard of care for managing bothersome symptoms associated with menopause, but it increases risks of breast cancer and of thromboembolism. The combination of conjugated estrogen (CE) with bazedoxifene (BZA) named tissue-selective estrogen complex (TSEC) was designed to minimize or even abrogate the undesirable effects on breast, while maintaining the beneficial effects such as prevention of osteoporosis and...
BACKGROUND: We evaluated the association between operating room time and developing a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolus (PE) after emergency general surgery (EGS).
METHODS: We reviewed six common EGS procedures in the 2013-2015 NSQIP dataset. After tabulating their incidence of postoperative VTE events, we calculated predictors of developing a VTE using adjusted multivariate logistic regressions.
RESULTS: Of 108,954 EGS patients, 1,366 patients...
INTRODUCTION: As cancer treatments continue to improve the overall survival rates, more patients with a history of cancer will present for anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). Therefore, it is essential for orthopaedic surgeons to understand the differences in care required by this growing subpopulation. Although the current research suggests that good outcomes can be predicted when appropriately optimized patients with cancer undergo lower extremity total joint...
Portal vein thrombosis is a frequently encountered complication in hepatology and hematology. In patients with liver cirrhosis, it can occur in the natural history of the disease due to clotting disorders or associated with hepatocellular carcinoma. The development of a malignant thrombus is a contraindication to several therapeutic procedures in liver cancer, such as liver resection or transplantation or transarterial chemoembolization; therefore, patients need to be...
