Deep Venous Thrombosis with Pulmonary Embolism Related to IVIg Treatment: A Case Report and Literature Review.

IVIg therapy has potentially been related to arterial and venous therapy. We performed an Ovid review focusing on IVIg and thrombotic events. While a ...

Pulmonary embolism without deep venous thrombosis: De novo or missed deep venous thrombosis?
Pulmonary embolus (PE) is thought to arise from a deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Recent data suggest that PE can present without DVT, inferring that PE can originate de novo (DNPE). We examined the relationship between DVT and PE in trauma patients sc

Deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in obese women.
Obesity increases the risk of venous thromboembolism, and pregnancy also increases the risk, particularly around delivery and in the puerperium. Pregnancy complications, which often involve bed rest in hospital, increase the risk still further. This

Acute pancreatitis complicated with deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism: a case report.
Acute pancreatitis is an acute inflammatory process of the pancreas that can trigger a systemic inflammatory response. Pulmonary embolism refers to obstruction of the pulmonary artery or one of its branches by material (usually a thrombus) that origi

Silent pulmonary embolism in patients with distal deep venous thrombosis: systematic review.
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the prevalence of silent pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with deep venous thrombosis (DVT) limited to the calf veins.

Concurrent pulmonary thrombosis with systemic embolism: a case report.
Based on different mechanisms of blood coagulation, coexistence of venous thromboembolism and arterial thrombosis in a single individual is extremely rare in clinical practice. Both antiplatelet and anticoagulation therapy should be adopted for patie

Hypereosinophilic syndrome presenting with multiple organ infiltration and deep venous thrombosis: A case report and literature review.
Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) can be fatal, particularly when eosinophils infiltrate vital organs and/or if extensive thrombosis develops. However there are no standard recommendations for the use of anticoagulant therapy of HES in the setting of

Concomitant deep venous thrombosis, femoral artery thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism after air travel.
The association between air travel and deep venous thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism "economy-class syndrome" is well described. However, this syndrome does not describe any association between long duration travel and arterial thrombosis or coexi

Venous sinus thrombosis in a child with nephrotic syndrome: a case report and literature review.
Nephrotic syndrome is associated with a hypercoagulable state and an increased risk of thromboembolic complications. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is a rare complication of nephrotic syndrome, with few cases described in the literature, although t

Concurrent pulmonary hemorrhage and deep vein thrombosis in a child with ANCA-associated vasculitis: case report and review of literature.
Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis (AAV) is an uncommon but potentially life threatening disease in children. Pulmonary hemorrhage (PH) is a well recognized but lethal complication. The incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE)

Risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism among deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism patients treated with warfarin.
Guidelines for warfarin treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) recommend targeting an international normalized ratio (INR) level of 2-3. This study examines the association between INR levels and VTE recurrence among warfarin-treated patients.
