A superior mesenteric vein thrombosis associated with in vitro fertilization.
Summary of "A superior mesenteric vein thrombosis associated with in vitro fertilization."
To describe a case of superior mesenteric vein thrombosis associated with IVF.
University teaching hospital. PATIENT(S): A 33-year-old female developed progressive abdominal pain several days after ET in her first IVF cycle. A computed tomography scan 12 days after ET showed a superior mesenteric vein thrombosis. INTERVENTION(S): Therapeutic anticoagulation. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Resolution of the superior mesenteric vein thrombosis with therapeutic anticoagulation. RESULT(S): Early diagnosis and treatment of a superior mesenteric vein thrombosis associated with IVF led to a favorable outcome. CONCLUSION(S): Endocrine alterations consequent to controlled ovarian hyperstimulation for IVF place patients at risk for thromboembolic events. Thromboembolic events may occur during an IVF cycle in the absence of overt ovarian hyperstimulation, an inherited thrombophilia, or pregnancy. Early diagnosis and treatment of superior mesenteric vein thrombosis can lead to a favorable outcome. Treatment guidelines for superior mesenteric vein thrombosis in setting of IVF are discussed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Veins which return blood from the intestines; the inferior mesenteric vein empties into the splenic vein, the superior mesenteric vein joins the splenic vein to form the portal vein.
A short thick vein formed by union of the superior mesenteric vein and the splenic vein.
Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.
Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome
DUODENAL OBSTRUCTION by the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) which travels in the root of the MESENTERY and crosses over the DUODENUM. The syndrome is characterized by the dilated proximal duodenum and STOMACH, bloating, ABDOMINAL CRAMPS, and VOMITING. Often it is observed in patient with body casts after spinal surgery.
Mesenteric Artery, Inferior
The artery supplying nearly all the left half of the transverse colon, the whole of the descending colon, the sigmoid colon, and the greater part of the rectum. It is smaller than the superior mesenteric artery (MESENTERIC ARTERY, SUPERIOR) and arises from the aorta above its bifurcation into the common iliac arteries.
Acute pancreatitis can result in many vascular complications in both artery and vein. Venous complication usually occurs as a form of splenic or portal vein thrombosis, and also can simultaneously occ...
BACKGROUND: Vascular thrombotic complications in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are well recognized, although mesenteric vascular thrombotic disease is rare. METHODS: We describe nine patients in a...
Various techniques for reconstruction after superior mesenteric-splenic-portal vein confluence resection during pancreaticoduodenectomy have been introduced. A certain kind of vascular grafting may be...
Venous thrombosis has been described in patients with acute and chronic pancreatitis. This is especially common in portal vein, splenic vein and superior mesenteric vein. To the best of our knowledge,...
Dissection of the superior mesenteric artery is the most important part of a pancreaticoduodenectomy for pancreatic cancer. Since 2005, we have used the left posterior approach for superior mesenteric...
Methods of infertility treatment may involve in vitro fertilization or IVF. Though effective, IVF is complex and expensive. Methods using no gonadotropin hormone stimulation of the ovaries...
it has been shown that androgens in non human primates may favour follicular growth in the ovaries when animals are treated with gonadotropins which are the hormones used in patients recei...
ABSTRACT Background The optimal duration of oral anticoagulant treatment in patients with idiopathic venous thromboembolism is still uncertain . The present study addressed the possible ro...
The aim of this investigation is to determine the value of combining acupuncture with infertility patients undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). The investigators will measure the outco...
