Following venous injury, venorrhaphy can restore outflow, although it risks thrombosis and venous thromboembolism (VTE). Vein ligation is a faster option, although it potentially risks extremity edema. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the management of venous injury on VTE and extremity edema in patients with isolated lower-extremity venous injuries.

The necessity of repair remains controversial following major lower extremity venous injuries (MLEVIs). Ligation may cause venous hypertension which should be managed with fasciotomies. Previous studi...
The purpose of this pictorial essay is to review different etiologies for lower extremity pain encountered on lower extremity venous sonography including acute deep venous thrombosis, chronic postthro...
Microvascular reconstruction of the lower extremity has the highest reported complication and flap failure rates of any anatomical region. Despite widespread adoption of the mechanical anastomotic ...
Venous compression syndromes are caused by extrinsic venous compression of anatomical structures, such as the adjacent arteries and bones. Chronic venous compression and pulsative vibratory arterial p...
Venous insufficiency is the most frequent cause of failure in free flap reconstruction of the lower extremity. When deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is detected during preoperative assessment of the lower e...
The objective of this Bayesian Adaptive trial is to compare a control group versus a comprehensive ulcer healing protocol. The latter involves a combination of compressive therapy, miokine...
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of the sequence of vessel interruption in lung cancer patients on tumor cell spread and patient survival by using peripheral blood circula...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that rivaroxaban is superior to placebo for reducing the risk of the primary composite outcome as defined by objectively confirmed symptomatic l...
The aim of this pilot study is to establish the success rate of catheterization of the lower jugular vein and the subclavian vein under ultrasound guidance in real time. The purpose is to ...
The LEAP protocol is a prospective cohort study of dysvascular patients designed to determine whether implementation of a multi-disciplinary lower extremity amputation protocol in the peri...
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.
A compression of ILIAC VEIN that results in a decreased flow in the vein and in the left LOWER EXTREMITY due to a vascular malformation. It may result in left leg EDEMA, pain, iliofemoral DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS and POSTTHROMBOTIC SYNDROME. Compression of the left common ILIAC VEIN by the right common ILIAC ARTERY against the underlying fifth LUMBAR VERTEBRA is the typical underlying malformation.
The venous trunk of the upper limb; a continuation of the basilar and brachial veins running from the lower border of the teres major muscle to the outer border of the first rib where it becomes the subclavian vein.
Ulceration of the skin and underlying structures of the lower extremity. About 90% of the cases are due to venous insufficiency (VARICOSE ULCER), 5% to arterial disease, and the remaining 5% to other causes.
Congenital structural abnormalities of the LOWER EXTREMITY.
