Evaluation of Patients With Vena Cava Inferior Thrombosis

2014-08-27 03:32:20 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the study is to evaluate patients with inferior vena cava (IVC)thrombosis in terms of etiology, clinical course and prognosis during long-term follow-up. Patients with isolated lower extremity DVT, matched for age and gender, serve as controls.


All Patients are assessed using a standardized questionnaire and details concerning VTE risk factors, concomitant disease, medical conditions, diagnosis and therapy of IVC thrombosis were registered. A blood sample is taken to test for inherited and acquired thrombophilia. In addition, duplex ultrasound examination and digital photoplethysmograph are performed to assess postthrombotic syndrome.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Mechanical devices inserted in the inferior vena cava that prevent the migration of blood clots from deep venous thrombosis of the leg.

A condition that occurs when the obstruction of the thin-walled SUPERIOR VENA CAVA interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the RIGHT ATRIUM. Obstruction can be caused by NEOPLASMS; THROMBOSIS; ANEURYSM; or external compression. The syndrome is characterized by swelling and/or CYANOSIS of the face, neck, and upper arms.

A vein which arises from the right ascending lumbar vein or the vena cava, enters the thorax through the aortic orifice in the diaphragm, and terminates in the superior vena cava.

The venous trunk which receives blood from the lower extremities and from the pelvic and abdominal organs.

A rare congenital abnormality resulting in the URETER passing dorsal to and being obstructed by the INFERIOR VENA CAVA.
