Vantagens da conservação da veia jugular interna nos esvaziamentos cervicais unilaterais / Advantages of internal jugular vein preservation in unilateral neck dissections  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: Diante da dúvida sobre a existência ou não de vantagens relacionadas à conservação da veia jugular interna nos esvaziamentos cervicais unilaterais resolvemos observar se os pacientes que a tem sacrificada apresentam alterações ao exame de fundo de olho que indiquem um aumento da pressão in [...] tracraniana, avaliar a presença de alterações neurológicas e verificar as vantagens na evolução clínico-cirúrgica dos pacientes que tiveram a sua veia jugular interna conservada. MÉTODO: Trata-se de estudo prospectivo, não randomizado, de 15 pacientes portadores de carcinoma epidermóide da cabeça e pescoço, atendidos e operados no Serviço de Cirurgia de Cabeça e Pescoço do Hospital Heliópolis, que tiveram como parte de seu tratamento a realização de esvaziamento cervical completo (funcional ou não) unilateral, divididos em um grupo com ressecção da veia jugular interna e outro com sua conservação. Todos foram submetidos a exames de retinografia pré e pós-operatórios, além de avaliação neurológica e clínica. RESULTADOS: Não ocorreram alterações oftalmológicas detectáveis através da retinografia em nenhum dos grupos. O grupo que teve sua veia jugular interna ressecada apresentou maior incidência de queixas neurológicas no pós-operatório, além de uma evolução cirúrgica mais desfavorável, com um maior período de internação devido às complicações locais apresentadas. CONCLUSÕES: A conservação da veia jugular interna nos esvaziamentos cervicais unilaterais beneficia a evolução pós-operatória dos pacientes, com um menor período de internação, apesar de não termos identificado qualquer evidência pós-operatória de aumento da pressão intracraniana nos pacientes que tiveram a veia ligada. Abstract in english BACKGROUND: Facing the doubt about the existence or not of advantages in preserving the internal jugular vein (IJV) in unilateral neck dissections, the authors decided to determine if the patients with IJV ligation develop changes in retina examination that indicate an increasing in intracranial pre [...] ssure, to evaluate the presence of neurologic changes and to verify the advantages on clinical and surgical outcome of the patients with IJV ligation. METHOD: This is a non-radomized, prospective study comprising 15 patients with head and neck squamous carcinoma treated at the Head and Neck Service of Hospital Heliópolis who were submitted to unilateral neck dissection as part of their treatment and divided in two groups: one with ligation of IJV and other with its preservation. All underwent to preoperative and postoperative retinography and clinical and neurological evaluation. RESULTS: Detectable ophthalmologic changes occurred in none of the two groups. The group with IJV ligation presented a larger incidence of neurologic complaints in postoperative period and a less favorable surgical outcome with a larger period of hospitalization due by local complications. CONCLUSIONS: Preservation of IJV in unilateral neck dissections took to a better postoperative outcome with less time of hospitalization even though no evidence of postoperative increasing in intracranial pressure was observed in patients with IJV ligation.

Modelo experimental estável de aneurisma sacular em artéria carótida de suínos utilizando veia jugular interna Stable experimental model of carotid artery saccular aneurysm in swine using the internal jugular vein  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Desenvolver um modelo experimental estável de aneurisma sacular em carótida de suínos utilizando veia jugular interna. MÉTODOS: Em 12 suínos sadios, com peso variando entre 25 e 50kg, cinco machos e sete fêmeas, foi confeccionado aneurisma na artéria carótida comum direita. Após arteriotomia elíptica, foi realizada anastomose terminolateral com coto distal de veia jugular interna. O volume do aneurisma era calculado de maneira que o valor não excedesse em 27 vezes o valor da área da arteriotomia. Após seis dias, era realizada angiografia e análise microscópica do aneurisma para avaliar perviedade e trombose parcial ou total. RESULTADOS: Houve ganho de peso significante dos suínos no intervalo de tempo entre a confecção do aneurisma e a angiografia (p = 0,04. Foi observada perviedade aneurismática em dez suínos (83%. Ocorreram infecções de feridas operatórias em dois animais (16,6%, ambas com início de aparecimento em três dias após a confecção do aneurisma. Análise histológica dos aneurismas mostrou trombos ocluindo parcialmente a luz em nove suínos (75%. Nesses animais, observou-se que, em média, 9% da luz aneurismática estava preenchida por trombos. CONCLUSÃO: Pôde ser desenvolvido um modelo experimental estável de aneurisma sacular em carótida de suínos utilizando veia jugular interna.OBJECTIVE: To develop an experimental model of stable saccular aneurysm in carotid of pigs using the internal jugular vein. METHODS: In 12 healthy pigs, weighing between 25 and 50kg, five males and seven females, we made a right common carotid artery aneurysm. After elliptical arteriotomy, we carried out a terminolateral anastomosis with the distal stump of the internal jugular vein. Aneurysm volume was calculated so that the value did not exceed 27 times the area of the arteriotomy. After six days angiography and microscopic examination were performed to assess patency of the aneurysm and the presence of total or partial thrombosis. RESULTS: There was a significant weight gain of pigs in the time interval between the manufacture of the aneurysm and angiography (p = 0.04. Aneurysmal patency was observed in ten pigs (83%. Operative wound infections occurred in two animals (16.6%, both with early onset, three days after the making of the aneurysm. Histological analysis showed aneurysm thrombus partially occluding the light in nine pigs (75%. In these animals, it was observed that on average 9% of the aneurysmal diameter was filled with thrombi. CONCLUSION: It was possible to develop a stable experimental model of saccular aneurysms in pig carotid artery by use of the internal jugular vein.

Trombosis yugular interna bilateral asociada a trombofilia después de la inducción ovárica por infertilidad / Bilateral internal jugular thrombosis associated with thrombophilia after ovarian induction for infertility  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Argentina | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Los eventos tromboembólicos son complicaciones poco frecuentes del tratamiento hormonal de la infertilidad y generalmente están asociados al síndrome de hiperestimulación ovárico (SHO). La trombosis venosa yugular es infrecuente y ante su presencia se debería sospechar la existencia de algún factor [...] predisponente. Describimos una paciente de 31 años, sin antecedentes de importancia, no fumadora, a la cual se le realizó un único ciclo de estimulación hormonal para fertilización in vitro por esterilidad primaria con factor masculino. Durante la octava semana de embarazo gemelar desarrolló una trombosis yugular interna bilateral, en ausencia de SHO u otros factores predisponentes aparentes. En la evaluación para trombofilia se detectó la presencia del Factor V Leiden y la mutación del gen de la protrombina G 20210, que junto con el estímulo hormonal, se interpretaron como los factores predisponentes. Se anticoaguló con heparina de bajo peso molecular. No está recomendado el rastreo sistemático de trombofilia antes del tratamiento hormonal, pero podría ser considerado en pacientes de alto riesgo o en quienes desarrollan trombosis en ausencia de un factor predisponente claro. Abstract in english Thromboembolic events are an infrequent complication of hormonal treatment for infertility and are generally related to the hyperstimulated ovarian syndrome (HOS). Jugular vein thrombosis is an unusual site of thrombosis and when present one should look for a predisposing factor. We describe a 31-ye [...] ar-old woman, with no previous medical history, non-smoker, who received a single cycle of hormonal stimulation for in vitro fertilisation due to primary infertility. During her eighth week of a twin pregnancy, she consulted the emergency room where the diagnosis of bilateral jugular thrombosis was confirmed, in absence of HOS or any known predisposing factor. In subsequent studies, the presence of Factor V Leyden and a mutation of G 20210 prothrombin were found. These, in association to the hormonal stimulus, were considered the risk factors. She received anticoagulation treatment with low molecular weight heparin. Screening tests for thrombophilias before hormonal treatment is not recommended, but one could consider this possibility in high-risk patients or in those who develop thrombosis in the absence of any predisposing factors.

Sessenta dias após, as endopróteses foram retiradas e analisadas sob o ponto de vista macro e microscópicos. Foram observados: perviedade, grau de incorporação a parede do vaso, tipo de reação inflamatória, e local de maior resposta, tanto em relação a camada do vaso quanto ao local de contato com o anel de aço RESULTADOS: Todas as endopróteses encontravam-se pérvias, e incorporadas à parede. No setor venoso, seis apresentaram traves fibrosas em sua luz, e quatro apresentaram fibrose perivascular. No setor arterial somente uma prótese apresentou discreta estenose, sem fibrose perivascular. A reação inflamatória crônica tipo corpo estranho ocorreu em 100% das peças, a camada média foi a mais acometida no setor venoso, enquanto a íntima foi mais constante na artéria, o grau de incorporação foi mais firme na veia em comparação a artéria. A reação tecidual mostrou maior tendência nas áreas em intimo contato com o anel de aço (intra-anelar), mais intensa na artéria do que na veia. CONCLUSÃO: A prótese apresentou baixa trombogenicidade em ambos os sistemas, houve maior reação tecidual e baixa biocompatibilidade no setor venoso.

The implants were done in the descending thoracic aorta, and in the infra-renal vena cava of 10 swines. Sixty days after, the endoprosthesis were removed and analyzed under macro and microscopic view. The following parameters were analyzed: patency, incorporation to the vessel wall, type of inflammatory reaction, tissue response concerning the layer of the vessel as for the contact with the ring steel. RESULTS: All implanted stent-grafts were patent, and incorporated to the vessel wall. Six presented fibrous bars, and four presented perivascular fibrosis at the venous section. At the arterial section, only one prosthesis developed a very small stenosis, without perivascular fibrosis. We observed chronic inflammatory reaction with a foreign body granulomatous response in 100% of the samples, the medium layer was the more prevalent at the vein section, while the intima layer was more constant at the artery, venous incorporation was stronger than artery incorporation, and tissue response was enhanced in the inner contact between the vessel wall and the ring steel. CONCLUSION: The prosthesis in study presented low thrombogenicity in both systems. It was also present, larger tissue response and low biocompatibility at the venous system, and better biocompatibility at the arterial system.

Transposition of cephalic vein to rescue hemodialysis access arteriovenous fistula and treat symptomatic central venous obstruction / Transposição de veia cefálica para salvamento de fístula arteriovenosa de hemodiálise e tratamento de obstrução venosa central sintomática  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Sabemos que estenose ou obstrução venosa central ocorre em 20 a 50% dos pacientes que são submetidos à colocação de cateter em veias centrais. Nos pacientes que realizam hemodiálise pelos membros superiores, este problema causa sintomas debilitantes e um grande risco de perda do acesso para hemodiál [...] ise. Relatamos um caso atípico de tratamento em um paciente dialítico com múltiplas comorbidades, queixa de dor e edema severo do membro superior direito (MSD), escassas alternativas de acessos vasculares para hemodiálise e fístula braquiobasílica funcionante do MSD associada à severa hipertensão venosa deste membro, secundária à oclusão venosa central da veia jugular interna e do tronco braquiocefálico direito. O tratamento cirúrgico alternativo foi a transposição da veia cefálica do MSD, formando colar venoso na região cervical anterior, resultando em um bypass sobre o sítio venoso ocluído. Para isso, realizamos a dissecção da veia cefálica no braço direito até a sua junção com a veia axilar, devalvulamos e anastomosamos a veia cefálica na veia jugular externa contralateral, permitindo a drenagem venosa do MSD, aliviando os sintomas da hipertensão venosa e mantendo a fístula braquiobasílica funcionante. Abstract in english It is known that stenosis or central venous obstruction affects 20 to 50% of patients who undergo placement of catheters in central veins. For patients who are given hemodialysis via upper limbs, this problem causes debilitating symptoms and increases the risk of loss of hemodialysis access. We repo [...] rt an atypical case of treatment of a dialysis patient with multiple comorbidities, severe swelling and pain in the right upper limb (RUL), few alternative sites for hemodialysis vascular access, a functioning brachiobasilic fistula in the RUL and severe venous hypertension in the same limb, secondary to central vein occlusion of the internal jugular vein and right brachiocephalic trunk. The alternative surgical treatment chosen was to transpose the RUL cephalic vein, forming a venous necklace at the anterior cervical region, bypassing the site of venous occlusion. In order to achieve this, we dissected the cephalic vein in the right arm to its junction with the axillary vein, devalved the cephalic vein and anastomosed it to the contralateral external jugular vein, providing venous drainage to the RUL, alleviating symptoms of venous hypertension and preserving function of the brachiobasilic fistula.

Persistência da veia ciática / Persistent sciatic vein  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese CONTEXTO: Durante um período da vida embrionária, a veia ciática é a principal coletora do membro inferior. Na embriogênese vascular, há diferenciação dos angioblastos em um plexo vascular primitivo, com posterior remodelagem e expansão. Consequentemente, durante esse processo, podem ocorrer anomali [...] as. Quando ocorre persistência da veia ciática, esta pode se comunicar com a veia safena parva ou com a veia poplítea durante seu percurso, anastomosando-se com a veia perfurante superior e com a veia circunflexa medial do fêmur. OBJETIVO: Relatar o caso da persistência bilateral de veia ciática nos membros inferiores, comparando à literatura. MÉTODOS: Foram dissecados 32 membros inferiores de 16 cadáveres formolizados no Laboratório de Anatomia pela Disciplina de Anatomia Topográfica da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Santo Amaro (Unisa), durante 2006 e 2007, observando-se em 2 membros inferiores de um único cadáver, a presença de veia ciática. RESULTADOS: No membro inferior esquerdo de um cadáver que apresentou a anomalia bilateralmente, a veia media 37 cm, tinha origem na região da veia poplítea, acompanhava o nervo ciático, perfurava o músculo adutor magno e desembocava na veia femoral profunda. No membro inferior direito, ela media 36 cm, originava-se recebendo as veias do compartimento tibial anterior, acompanhava o nervo ciático, perfurava o músculo adutor magno e desembocava na veia ilíaca interna. CONCLUSÃO: As variações anatômicas do sistema venoso do membro inferior são as mais prevalentes. A persistência da veia ciática pode causar insuficiência venosa crônica no membro inferior e, dessa forma, deve ser investigada para uma melhor conduta clínica ou cirúrgica. Abstract in english BACKGROUND: During a period of the embryonic life, the sciatic vein is the main lower limb collector. In vascular embryogenesis, there is a differentiation of the angioblasts in a primitive vascular plexus, with posterior remodeling and expansion. Consequently, anomalies may occur during this proces [...] s. When there is persistence of the sciatic vein, it may communicate with the small saphenous vein or with the popliteal vein during its route, being anastomosed to the superior perforating vein and to the medial circumflex femoral vein. OBJECTIVE: To report a case of bilateral persistent sciatic vein on the lower limbs in comparison to the literature. METHODS: Thirty-two lower limbs from 16 corpses preserved in formaldehyde were dissected at the Laboratory of Anatomy of the discipline of Topographic Anatomy of the Medical School of Universidade Santo Amaro (Unisa), during 2006 and 2007, and the sciatic vein was observed in 2 lower limbs of one single corpse. RESULTS: On the left lower limb of a corpse that presented bilateral anomaly, the vein had 37 cm, emerging on the popliteal vein, accompanying the sciatic nerve, perforating the long adductor muscle and leading into the deep femoral vein. On the right lower limb, it measured 36 cm, emerged receiving the veins of the anterior tibial compartment, accompanied the sciatic nerve, perforated the long adductor muscle and led into the internal iliac vein. CONCLUSION: The anatomical variations of the lower limb venous system are the most common ones. The persistent sciatic vein may cause chronic venous failure in the lower limbs and, in this manner, must be investigated aiming at a better clinical or surgical management.

Throbbing tinnitus in aberrant internal carotid artery aggravated by elevation of the jugular bulb. A case report; Pulsierender Tinnitus bei aberranter Arteria carotis interna in Kombination mit Hochstand des Bulbus venae jugularis. Kasuistik  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Vascular anomalies in the middle ear are rarely observed. They cause no symptoms in the majority of cases, although some may be associated with tinnitus. The false diagnosis of glomus tumour may lead to considerable problems, if surgery is performed. It is therefore necessary that precise pre-operative data are obtained, preferably based on contrast-enhanced computerized tomography. Subsequent 2D and 3D image reconstructions provide further vascular findings regarding the topographic and anatomic factors involved and eliminate the need for invasive angiography of the carotid artery or retrograde jugular venography to make a firm diagnosis. (orig.) [Deutsch] Gefaessanomalien im Mittelohr sind selten. Meist sind sie asymptomatisch, koennen aber assoziiert sein mit Tinnitus. Die Fehldiagnose eines Glomustumors kann im Rahmen einer Operation zu gravierenden Problemen fuehren. Eine exakte praeoperative Abklaerung ist deshalb notwendig und sollte als Computertomographie mit Kontrastmittelgabe durchgefuehrt werden. Die anschliessende 2D- und 3D-Bildwiedergabe klaert die topographisch-anatomischen Gefaessbeziehungen und erlaubt somit die Diagnosestellung ohne die frueher durchgefuehrte invasive Carotisangiographie oder retrograde Jugularisvenographie.

Foram utilizados 10 eqüinos divididos em dois grupos de cinco animais, em que se induziu a trombose da veia jugular direita, através do acesso cirúrgico à veia e aplicação de sutura estenosante e injeção de glicose a 50%. No grupo controle avaliou-se a evolução da tromboflebite sem qualquer tipo de intervenção terapêutica. Os animais do grupo tratado foram submetidos à trombectomia com cateter de Fogarty. Foram avaliados os parâmetros clínicos gerais, regionais, ultra-sonográficos e angiográficos, nos momentos pré-indução (M-PRÉ), indução da trombose (MTI) e 10 dias de evolução da trombose (M10). A técnica empregada induziu a tromboflebite, que obstruiu completamente um segmento da veia jugular de todos os animais. Os animais do grupo controle mantiveram os trombos obstruindo totalmente o lume vascular até o final do período de avaliação, sendo que avaliações regionais mostraram principalmente o edema parotídeo e o ingurgitamento vascular, cranial à tromboflebite da veia jugular. O grupo tratado apresentou as veias jugulares pérvias ao final do experimento, confirmadas pelos exames ultra-sonográficos e angiográficos, com remissão total dos sinais clínicos. Concluiu-se que a técnica da trombectomia com cateter de Fogarty foi eficiente na desobstrução da veia jugular submetida à trombose experimental. Abstract in english Thrombosis of jugular vein is a common problem in the equine medicine, implying frequently in fatal outcomes. The diagnosis is relatively simple, based on the clinical findings, angiographics images and ultrasonographycs. The therapeutic employed to a large extent of the cases is unsatisfactory. The [...] purpose of this study was to evaluate the applicability of the thrombectomy with Fogarty's catheter in horses. This technique is routinely used in medicine, in the reestablishment of the vascular perviousness. Ten horses were allocated in two groups (five animals each) and induced to an unilateral thrombosis of right jugular vein, through the surgical access and an application of stenotic suture and glucose 50% injection. In the control group evolution of the thrombophlebitis without any therapeutical intervention was evaluated. The animals of the treatment group were submitted to the thrombectomy with Fogarty's catheter. General clinical parameters were analyzed at the moment of the preinduction (MPRE), induction of thrombosis (MTI), and at the 10th day of thrombosis evolution (M10). The procedure induced thrombophlebitis that completely obstructed a segment of the jugular vein in all animals. In the animals of the control group, the thrombus totally obstructed the vascular lumen until the end of the period of evaluation, and parotid edema and vascular dilated, cranial to the thrombophlebitis of jugular vein were observed. The treatment group presented all veins pervious in the end of the experiment, with total remission of the clinical signs, confirmed by angiographic and ultrasonographic examinations. So far, it was concluded that the technique of thrombectomy with Fogarty's catheter was effective in removal of the thrombosis obstruction experimentally induced in the jugular vein.

The jugular bulb diverticulum  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Two hundred and forty-five temporal bone specimens were examined radiographically. Subsequently the topographic relationship between the jugular fossa and surrounding structures was evaluated in plastic casts of the specimens. Fifty-eight casts showed a high jugular fossa and in 17 a jugular bulb diverticulum was found. A diverticulum is regarded as an anomaly of the high jugular bulb and presumably has a potential for expansion. Most frequently a diverticulum was directed medially into the space between the internal acoustic meatus, the vestibular aqueduct and the posterior cranial fossa. Seven diverticula reached the level of the internal acoustic meatus. Encroachment upon the vestibular aqueduct was seen in 4 casts and both the internal acoustic meatus and the cochlear aqueduct were very close to the diverticulum. A few diverticula were directed postero-laterally close to the facial canal and the stapedius muscle. The investigation was supplemented with a selected clinical material of radiographs of temporal bones with high fossae. The results corresponded to those of the experimental investigation. The jugular bulb diverticulum is a relatively common feature and should be regarded as an anomaly with a potential to give rise to clinical symptoms consequent to its intrusion upon surrounding structures.

Subdiaphragmatic venous stasis and tissular hypoperfusion as sources of metabolic acidosis during passive portal-jugular and caval-jugular bypasses in dogs Estase venosa subdiafragmática e hipoperfusão tissular como fontes de acidose metabólica durante desvios porta-jugular e cava-jugular passivos em cães  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Subdiafragmatic venous decompression during anhepatic stage of canine orthotopic liver transplantation attenuates portal and caval blood stasis and minimize hipoperfusion and metabolic acidosis observed with occlusion of portal and caval veins. During two hours, six dogs submitted to portal-jugular and caval-jugular passive shunts, with maintenance of arterial hepatic flow, were evaluated for pH, carbon dioxide tension (PCO2, base deficit (BD and oxygen tension (PO2 in portal, caval and systemic arterial blood, as well as for increments of BD (DBD in portal and caval blood. With a confidence level of 95%, the results showed that: 1. There were not changes of pH anDBD in portal and systemic arterial blood in the majority of studied times; 2. There was metabolic acidosis in caval blood; 3. The negative increments of BD (DBD were higher in caval blood than in splancnic venous blood at T10, T30 and T105; and, 4. Deoxigenation of portal and caval blood were detected. Acid-base metabolism and oxigenation monitoring of subdiaphramatic venous blood can constitute an effective way to evaluate experimental passive portal-jugular and caval-jugular bypass in dogs.A descompressão venosa subdiafragmática durante a fase anhepática do transplante ortotópico de fígado em cães atenua a estase de sangue nas veias Porta e Cava Inferior e minimiza a hipoperfusão tissular e a acidose metabólica observadas na oclusão dessas veias. Durante duashoras, seis cães submetidos a desvios porta-jugular e cava-jugular passivos, com permanência do fluxo arterial hepático, foram avaliados através de pH, PCO2, DB e PO2 no sangue portal, da Veia Cava Inferior e arterial sistêmico, bem como por incrementos de DB (DDB no sangue portal e da Veia Cava Inferior. Os resultados obtidos permitem concluir com uma confiança de 95% que: 1. Não foram constatadas alterações de pH e DB no sangue portal e arterial sistêmico na maioria dos tempos estudados; 2. Houve acidose metabólica no sangue da VCIIH; 3.Os incrementos negativos da DB (DDB foram mais intensos no sangue da VCIIH do que no sangue da VP, em T10, T30 e T105; e, 4. Ocorreu desoxigenação no sangue portal e da VCIIH. Oacompanhamento do equilíbrio ácido-básico e da oxigenação no sangue venoso subdiafragmático pode constituir uma maneira efetiva de avaliar os desvios porta-jugular e cava-jugular passivos em cães.

Enxertos vasculares homólogos e heterólogos conservados em glicerina na fleboplastia da jugular em eqüinos Arterial homograft and venous heterograft conserved in glycerin in the phleboplasty of the jugular in equines  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Doze eqüinos foram divididos aleatoriamente em dois grupos de seis animais (grupos I e II, com a finalidade de estudar a compatibilidade tecidual e a propriedade de indução de trombos de dois tecidos biológicos conservados em glicerina a 98%. Esses tecidos foram usados na restauração da jugular externa e se constituíram de artéria carótida comum homóloga (ACCHo, no grupo I, e veia jugular externa heteróloga (VJEHe, no grupo II. Para a restauração, utilizaram-se duas técnicas de anastomose da jugular, sendo, no grupo I, a técnica de bypass e, no grupo II, a substituição de um segmento da jugular esquerda por meio de anastomose vascular término-terminal. Para avaliar a trombogênese local e a histocompatibilidade, foram realizados exames clínicos, hematológicos, ecoDopplercardiográficos e histológicos dos segmentos vasculares enxertados. Os segmentos foram colhidos após 45 dias da avaliação pós-operatória, tendo a jugular direita como testemunha para os exames histológicos. Ambos os tecidos foram compatíveis quando implantados nos eqüinos, sem processo inflamatório acentuado, indicativo de rejeição. A técnica de bypass não foi eficiente na restauração da jugular, ocorrendo trombose obliterante dos enxertos de ACCHo. A substituição completa do segmento da jugular por VJEHe pode ser viável para o restabelecimento do fluxo sangüíneo da jugular de eqüinos, desde que se mantenha a igualdade dos diâmetros entre o enxerto e o vaso receptor.Twelve horses were randomly divided into two groups of six animals each (groups I and II in order to study the compatibility and trombogenicity of two biological tissues conserved in glycerin at 98% which were used to restore the external jugular. The tissues consisted of arterial homograft - ACCHo (group I and venous heterograft - VJEHe (group II. Two different techniques for jugular anastomosis were performed - bypass in group I and replacement of a segment of the left jugular by means of end to end vascular anastomosis in group II. Clinical, hematological, Doppler ultrasonography, and histological examinations of the grafted vascular segments were conducted to evaluate local trombogenicity and tissue compatibility. All animals had the segments collected after 45 days, being the right jugular used as standard for the histopathological exams. Both tissues were compatible since no serious inflammatory process indicative of rejection took place. The bypass technique was not efficient for jugular restoration because of the occurrence of obliterant trombosys of the ACCHo. The full replacement of a jugular segment by the VJEHe can be feasible in reestablishing blood flow through the jugular of horses as long as the diameters of the grafted tissue and the original blood vessel are kept the same.

Foi utilizada cirurgia combinada com dissecção do pescoço, mastoidectomia [...] sem transposição do nervo facial e técnica de reconstrução miofascial da base do crânio desenvolvida por um dos autores. Quatro pacientes foram operados via craniectomia retrosigmoidea. Ressecção total foi feita em 9 pacientes, subtotal em um e parcial em outro. Nenhum dos 11 pacientes teve progressão da doença em 2 anos de acompanhamento. Não houve mortalidade. Cinco pacientes tiveram déficits adicionais de nervos cranianos baixos. Nove pacientes mantiveram ou melhoraram suas pontuações de acordo com a escala de Karnofsky. Para adequada abordagem do paciente com tumor de forame jugular, são necessários bom conhecimento anatômico da região, exposição cirúrgica ampla, e técnica de reconstrução eficiente para obter cura com baixas taxas de complicações pós-operatórias. Abstract in english Eleven patients with jugular foramen lesions with or without extradural extension were operated at University Hospital of Campinas (UNICAMP), in Campinas, Brazil, between 1998 and 2001. Neck dissection, mastoidectomy without transposition of the facial nerve and myofascial flap reconstruction of the [...] cranial base with an especially developed technique were carried out in 7 patients. Four patients were operated using retrosigmoid craniectomy. Total excision was accomplished in 9 cases. All patients did not show evidence of disease progression at least after 2 years follow-up. There was no mortality. New lower cranial nerve deficits occurred in 5 patients. Nine maintain or improved their preoperative status based on Karnofsky and Glasgow Outcome Scale. A complex anatomy of this region demand wide exposures for treat those tumors. For this reason, an adequate approach for curative resection of most lesions and an efficient skull base reconstruction decreasing postoperative morbidity are essential.

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Introdução: No trauma abdominal, o comprometimento dos grandes vasos constitui uma situação de grande complexidade com altos índices de complicações e mortalidade. Nestes pacientes, a lesão da veia porta-hepática tem interesse em razão da dificuldade no diagnóstico e na abordagem cirúrgica. Objetivo [...] : Padronizar o plano de transecção do pâncreas visando o acesso cirúrgico mais seguro para os reparos das lesões da veia porta-hepática. Métodos: Procedeu-se à uma análise quantitativa para caracterizar a relação anatômica da veia porta-hepática e suas tributárias relacionando-as com o pâncreas. Nestes cadáveres, estudou-se as medidas de um triângulo anatômico que tem como base o limite superior da veia mesentérica superior e porção inicial da veia porta; como ápice, um ponto localizado no limite superior da confluência das veias esplênica e mesentérica superior, situado na linha média da veia mesentérica superior. Resultados: A veia porta-hepática é formada a 3.24cm da borda interna do arco duodenal numa localização que dista 1.61cm e 1.07 das bordas inferior e superior do pâncreas, respectivamente. Conclusão: O presente estudo nos permite concluir que, para se fazer o acesso à origem da veia porta-hepática, em caso de trauma deste vaso, deve-se proceder a secção do colo do pâncreas junto à veia mesentérica superior, pois a confluência entre ela e a veia esplênica ocorre, em média, a 1.07cm da borda superior da glândula, e a 1.61cm de sua borda inferior. Abstract in english Introduction: The commitment of the great blood-vessels make up a situation of great complexity and a high rate of the complications and mortality patients with abdominal trauma. The injury of the portal vein matters because of the difficulty on the diagnosis and the approach surgery. Objective: To [...] set the standard on the transverse section of the pancreas looking for a safer surgical access to repair the portal vein injuries. Methods: A quantitative analysis was performed to characterize the anatomical relationship between the portal vein and their tributaries relating them to the pancreas. On these corpses, the measurements of a anatomical triangle were studied. It base was the upper limit of the superior mesenteric vein and the initial portion of the portal vein; the apex, a point located on the upper limit of the confluence of the splenic vein and superior mesenteric vein, situated at the middle line of the superior mesenteric_ vein. Results: The portal vein is formed 3.24cm from the internal border of the duodenal arc at a distance of 1.61cm and 1.07 from the inferior and superior pancreas borders, respectively. Conclusion: The present study allow us to conclude that, to have access to the origin of the portal vein, in case of trauma of this vessel, one should proceed a transverse section of the neck of the pancreas next to the superior mesenteric vein, because its confluence with splenic vein occur, on average, 1.07cm and 1.61cm from the superior and inferior border of the gland, respectively.

Full Text Available An abnormal unilateral blockage of the jugular foramen by a bone growth converting it into a slit was noted in a skull during osteology demonstration classes for medical undergraduates. The left jugular foramen was narrowed by a thick bony projection filling the jugular fossa. This kind of narrowing of the foramen might results in neurovascular symptoms as it transmits important cranial nerves and internal jugular vein. Injury of ninth, tenth and eleventh cranial nerves can occur due to narrowing of jugular foramen know as Vernet’s syndrome is discussed along with case.

Ataques isquêmicos transitórios em paciente com síndrome da veia cava superior: relato de caso Transient ischemic attacks in a patient with superior vena cava obstruction: case report  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A síndrome da veia cava superior (SVCS é condição relativamente rara. Relatamos o caso de um paciente de 42 anos, masculino, hipertenso há 15 anos, que evoluiu com dor cervical e torácica há um um ano, sendo evidenciada oclusão de 95% da coronária direita. Submetido a angioplastia, porém com persistência da dor torácica. Posteriormente evoluiu com episódios recorrentes de hemiplegia à direita associados a crises hipertensivas, que melhoravam com medicamentos anti-hipertensivos. Pela presença de coloração vinhosa na face e acentuação durante os períodos de ataques isquêmicos transitórios, foi feita a suspeita diagnóstica de provável acometimento do sistema de drenagem venosa, confirmada à venografia pelo achado de dilatação da veia jugular direita e imagem de estreitamento importante na junção com a veia cava superior. Em conclusão, não foi possível definir com certeza a relação entre as duas patologias no caso aqui apresentado, porém chamou a atenção a melhora dos sintomas neurológicos após o controle da SVCS com o tratamento instituído.The superior vena cava obstruction is a relatively rare condition. We report the case of a 42 year old man suffering of hypertension for about fifteen years. He reported a cervical and thoracic pain for one year, that was related to a 95% of occlusion on the right coronary artery. An angioplasty has been done but the patient still related the thoracic pain. Afterwards the patient had recurrent episodes of right hemiplegia and hypertensive emergencies that have been treated with anti-hypertensive agents. A venous disease was suspected because of cyanosis in the face especially when episodes of transient ischemic attacks occurred. A venography showed obstruction of the right jugular vein near the junction with the superior vena cava. In conclusion, it was not possible to define with certainty the relationship between the two pathologies presented by the patient, even so, we call attention to the improvement of the neurological symptoms after the control of superior vena cava obstruction with the treatment.

The structure and function of giraffe jugular vein valves  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

When a giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) lowers its head to drink, blood could enter the jugular vein from the inferior vena cava or regurgitate from the jugular veins into the cranial veins. We investigated the anatomy of jugular valves in giraffes to establish if they could prevent either of these regurgitations. Jugular vein length and intervalve distances of 396 valves (192 left, 204 right) were measured in 60 veins from 25 adult (11 males and 14 females) and five foetal giraffes. The aver...

Radiologic approach to jugular bulb paragangliomas  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Paragangliomas are highly vascular neoplasms that derive from neuroendocrine tissue. They account for about 0.6% of all head and neck tumors and most commonly occur in the carotid bifurcation, tympanic cavity, jugular foramen and in the area of vagal ganglia below the skull base. The aim of the study was retrospective evaluation of radiological features of jugular bulb paragangliomas in the group of 22 patients. In the analyzed group, there were 16 females and 7 males, aged 14-81. All the patients underwent CT and MRI, in 12 cases carotid angiography and in 3 cases Doppler sonography was performed. We evaluated typical radiological features of jugular bulb paragangliomas and usefulness of various imaging methods in diagnosis and assessment of this pathology. Computed tomography in all patients showed widening of the jugular foramen. MR images in 19 cases revealed the presence of intra-tumoral signal-void areas representing tumor vessels. Both methods showed intensive post-contrast enhancement of all tumors. Carotid angiography presented high vascularity and arterio-venous fistulas in all tumors. In the performed Doppler ultrasound studies, the tumors were not visible. In all cases, increased blood flow in the ipsilateral carotid artery and vein was observed, and in 2 patients with a coexisting carotid body paraganglioma was diagnosed. CT and MRI allow best evaluation of tumor extension and present features characteristic of jugular bulb paraganglioma. Carotid angiography confirms the diagnosis of a vascular tumor and is used for its preoperative embolization. Ultrasonography is a useful technique for exclusion of coexisting carotid body paraganglioma. (author)

Effects of a high jugular fossa and jugular bulb diverticulum on the inner ear  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

From a series of patients undergoing routine radiographic examination, 112 temporal bones with a high jugular fossa were selected. Among these, 43 jugular bulb diverticula were found. The structures affected by a high fossa or diverticulum were recorded and correlated to the clinical symptoms of the patient. The vestibule was suspected to be affected in five patients. Two of these patients had tinnitus and vertigo, and three had hearing loss. In one of the latter the hearing loss was most marked in the supine position. The cochlea was close to the fossa in three patients, all of whom had tinnitus. Four patients had a defect of the posterior semicircular canal. One of them lost his hearing after a severe fit of coughing, became unsteady and showed signs of a fistula. The internal acoustic meatus and the mastoid portion of the facial canal were affected in two and four patients, respectively, who had no recorded symptoms. Twelve of 34 patients with Meniere's disease and a high jugular fossa on the side of the diseased ear had a dehiscence of the vestibular aqueduct caused by the fossa or diverticulum, compared with nine of 58 patients in the unselected material. For comparison and demonstration of topographic relationships, 58 casts of unselected radiograhed temporal bone specimens with high jugular fossae or diverticula were investigated. In patients with a high jugular fossa or jugular bulb diverticulum, tomographic assessment

External Jugular Vein Aneurysm Presenting as a Cervical Mass  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Venous aneurysms are rare causes of neck mass. Among neck veins, aneurysms of the external jugular vein are extremely uncommon. We present a case of a woman with a history of prior internal jugular vein catheterization who presented at a rural primary health care unit with a nontender progressively enlarging swelling in the right supraclavicular region. B-mode and Doppler ultrasound examination revealed a saccular dilatation of the external jugular vein, suggesting a posttraumatic venous aneu...

Queckenstedt's Test Affects More than Jugular Venous Congestion in Rat  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Jugular venous compression by the Queckenstedt's test (Q-test) increases the intracranial pressure, but the effects of isolated jugular venous congestion are not well known. Intraventricular pressure (IVP) was compared during direct obstruction of the common jugular veins (bilateral CJV clipping) and during external compression of bilateral CJV flows (Q-test) in a rat model. Intracerebroventricular catheters were inserted into the right lateral ventricle of nine male Sprague-Dawley rats (371....

A exposição do contorno lateral direito da veia cava inferior na cirurgia hepática  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O conhecimento da relação entre a veia cava inferior e o tecido hepático é fundamental para a sua abordagem durante a cirurgia hepática. Observa-se na literatura dados contraditórios. Objetivo: Pesquisar a sintopia da veia cava inferior, o número de veias confluentes para o contorno direito e a distância do segmento retro-hepático da veia cava inferior. Métodos: Foram estudados 38 fígados humanos, entre 13 e 98 anos de ambos sexos. Obtida a peça anatômica, era dissecada a veia cava inferior, observando-se a sua sintopia com o parênquima hepático. Foram obtidas medidas biométricas da veia cava inferior, como a medida do segmento retro-hepático e anotado o número de veias confluentes para o contorno lateral direito da veia cava inferior. Foi realizado estudo estatístico comparando os dados em relação ao sexo. Resultados: a sintopia do lobo caudado foi determinada como incompleta em 37 (97,4% casos. A distância total da veia cava inferior em seu segmento retro-hepático foi em média 59,66 mm. O número de veias confluentes foi de 3,44 significantemente maior no sexo masculino (p = 0,027. Conclusões: A sintopia incompleta do lobo caudado é encontrada na maioria dos casos. Este fato facilita o acesso cirúrgico a veia cava inferior retro-hepática quando exposta pelo seu contorno lateral direito. Esta veia apresenta um segmento relativamente curto ocupando um sulco na parte posterior do fígado. Um pequeno número de veias confluem para o contorno direito, significantemente maior no sexo masculino. Deve o cirurgião preocupar-se com a dissecção da região devido a presença destes vasos e a possibilidade de sangramentos volumosos.

Jugular venous thrombosis: diagnosis by computed tomography.  

Science.gov (United States)

Thrombosis of the internal jugular vein (TIJV) was diagnosed by CT in five patients. Clinical presentations included unexplained fever (four patients), swollen neck (three patients), and mediastinal widening (one patient). Factors contributing to TIJV included placement of a central venous catheter (three patients) and neck surgery (two patients). In two patients left TIJV occurred after right sided venous catheterization. The CT findings consisted of enlargement of the thrombosed vein, a nonenhancing filling defect in the lumen of the affected vessel, an enhancing vessel wall, and opacification of collateral venous channels.

Glomus jugulare tumor with intra- and extracranial extension  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

A case of glomus jugulare tumor with intra- and extracranial extension is described. The patient was a 63-year-old woman who complained of gait and memory disturbances. On admission neurological examination revealed recent memory disturbance, left deafness, left XI, XIIth cranial nerve palsies, and slight ataxic gait. Roentgenogram of the skull showed an enlarged left jugular foramen with bone erosion. Plain X-ray computerized tomography scan (X-CT) indicated obstructive hydrocephalus and X-CT with contrast enhancement revealed a mass lesion in the left posterior cranial fossa extending through enlarged left jugular foramen to the extracranial space toward the level of C2. Cerebral angiography demonstrated a large mass with blood supply from branches of left external carotid and vertebral arteries. The tumor stain was not remarkable. Left internal jugular vein was completely obstructed at the level of the second cervical vertebral body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) clearly showed the tumor extending from the anterolateral portion to the second cervical vertebral body through the enlarged jugular foramen to the posterior cranial fossa. Brain stem and cerebellar hemisphere which were markedly compressed by the mass were clearly visualized. At first a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt was made and four weeks later subtotal removal of the tumor was undertaken. Histopathology of tumor specimen showed typical glomus jugulare tumor. MRI was considered to be very useful for the diagnosis and treatment of the glomus jugulare tumor with intra- and extracranial extension. (author)

Radiotherapy for jugulo-tympanic paragangliomas (Glomus jugulare tumours)  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Parasympathetic paraganglia are found in the region of the jugular bulb, in association with the tympanic branch of the glossopharyngeal nerve and the auricular branch of the vagus. The name commonly applied to these structures is 'glomus jugulare'. Tumours arising from these paraganglia (paragangliomas or glomus jugulare tumours) are usually histologically benign but locally destructive. They may involve the middle ear, the temporal bone, or the jugular foramen, and may extend into the neck or cranium. Very occasionally they are malignant and metastasise (Taylor et al., 1965). The clinical features of these tumours and the techniques for their diagnosis are well established, but treatment remains controversial. Radiotherapy has been the preferred treatment at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London, and sixty cases seen at this hospital between 1942 and 1982 are reviewed here. (author)

Radiosurgery of Glomus Jugulare Tumors: A Meta-Analysis  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Purpose: During the past two decades, radiosurgery has arisen as a promising approach to the management of glomus jugulare. In the present study, we report on a systematic review and meta-analysis of the available published data on the radiosurgical management of glomus jugulare tumors. Methods and Materials: To identify eligible studies, systematic searches of all glomus jugulare tumors treated with radiosurgery were conducted in major scientific publication databases. The data search yielded 19 studies, which were included in the meta-analysis. The data from 335 glomus jugulare patients were extracted. The fixed effects pooled proportions were calculated from the data when Cochrane's statistic was statistically insignificant and the inconsistency among studies was <25%. Bias was assessed using the Egger funnel plot test. Results: Across all studies, 97% of patients achieved tumor control, and 95% of patients achieved clinical control. Eight studies reported a mean or median follow-up time of >36 months. In these studies, 95% of patients achieved clinical control and 96% achieved tumor control. The gamma knife, linear accelerator, and CyberKnife technologies all exhibited high rates of tumor and clinical control. Conclusions: The present study reports the results of a meta-analysis for the radiosurgical management of glomus jugulare. Because of its high effectiveness, we suggest considering radiosurgery for the primary management of glomus jugulare tumors.

Desvios porta-jugular e cava-jugular passivos em cães: Investigação de pressões sangüíneas  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Os principais objetivos dos desvios veno-venosos durante o transplante ortotópico de fígado são: atenuação da estase venosa subdiafragmática, manutenção do retorno satisfatório de sangue ao coração e perfusão tissular eficiente. Investigações sobre PP, PVCIIH, PVC, PAM e PPR, bem como D PP e D PVCIIH foram conduzidas em seis cães, sob anestesia geral, com fígados perfundidos pela Artéria Hepática, submetidos a desvios porta-jugular e cava-jugular passivos durante 2 horas. Estes desvios não foram capazes de evitar estagnação de sangue na VP e VCIIH, acarretando estase e menor retorno sangüíneo ao coração, sugeridos por aumentos significativos de PP e PVCIIH e quedas significantes nos níveis de PVC. Os valores de PAM não apresentaram diferenças significativas em relação ao tempo T0, na maior parte dos tempos avaliados, enquanto que os valores de PPR foram significativamente menores que os verificados no tempo T0, na maioria dos tempos estudados. Tais pressões mantiveram-se, respectivamente, acima de 100 e 50 mm de Hg, atribuindo-se tais resultados, em parte, à vasoconstricção arteriolar generalizada. Incrementos de pressão na VP (D PP foram significativamente menos elevados que aqueles verificados na VCIIH (D PVCIIH, atribuindo-se tal diferença à complacência esplâncnica. Decréscimos ulteriores dos níveis de PP e PVCIIH sugerem queda do fluxo arterial para os territórios esplâncnico e sistêmico, decorrente de diminuição do retorno sangüíneo ao coração. Determinações de PP, PVCIIH, PVC, PAM e PPR podem constituir meio prático de avaliação hemodinâmica do desvio veno-venoso.

LUNG MALIGNANCY PRESENTING AS BILATERAL INTERNAL JUGULAR VEIN THROMBOSIS  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Venous thrombosis may be fatal, for example by a pulmonary embolism and right or left atrial thrombosis. Alternatively, deep vein thrombosis may follow a benign pattern such as femoral and popliteal vein thrombosis. Internal Jugular vein (IJV thrombosis is a rare entity. Internal jugular vein thrombosis is a serious event with potentially fatal outcome, where the clinical symptoms may be vague or absent. It is usually secondary to various etiologies such as catheter, malignancy, trauma, infection and hypercoagulable status. Associated malignancies, either known or occult, are also uncommon and not well documented in the etiology of IJV thrombosis. Spontaneous internal jugular vein thrombosis may occur in connection with a neoplasm, termed Trousseau's syndrome. Although the true incidence of IJV thrombosis is unknown it appears to be increasing

Diagnosis of jugular paraganglioma by radionuclide angiography: concise communication  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Jugular paraganglioma is a highly vascular tumor, slowly growing, extending into the surrounding stuctures and causing otologic and /or neurologic symptoms according to its location in the jugular bulb region or the middle-ear. In our study, modified vertex and posterior head scintiangiography was used in seven cases. Scintiangiography was positive in all seven, whereas concomitant radiographic studies were limited: four of the seven gave positive findings by transmission computerized tomography (TCT). Only four patients underwent angiography, with positive results in two. Hypocycloidal tomography was positive in three cases. However, some radiographic studies, particularly TCT, may be useful in detecting local extension, bone destruction, and soft-tissue infiltration. Radionuclide angiography proved highly reliable and should be used initially whenever a jugular paraganglioma is suspected

Veia cava superior esquerda anômala com ausência de veia cava superior direita: achados de imagem Persistent left superior vena cava with absent right superior vena cava: image findings  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A persistência da veia cava superior esquerda com ausência da veia cava superior direita é uma anomalia rara, com menos de 150 casos descritos na literatura. A não-obliteração e regressão da veia cardinal anterior esquerda durante o desenvolvimento embriológico promove uma variação sistêmica de retorno venoso ao coração, com persistência da veia cava superior esquerda. Sua incidência varia de 0,3% em pacientes sem alterações cardíacas congênitas concomitantes a 4,3% naqueles com cardiopatias. Na maioria das vezes coexiste a veia cava superior direita, porém se houver regressão e degeneração da veia cardinal anterior direita, implicará a sua ausência e a drenagem venosa para o coração será feita pela veia cava superior esquerda ao átrio direito, através do seio coronariano. Mostramos um caso de um paciente submetido a radiografia de tórax e tomografia computadorizada para avaliação de doença pulmonar obstrutiva crônica, tendo como achado a persistência da veia cava superior esquerda com ausência da direita, sem qualquer cardiopatia associada e com a drenagem cardíaca sendo feita, através do seio coronariano, para o átrio direito.Persistent left superior vena cava with absent right superior vena cava is a rare anomaly, with less than 150 cases reported in the literature. Congenitally persistent left superior vena cava is the most common variant of systemic venous return to the heart, resulting embryologically from failure of the left anterior cardinal vein to become obliterated. Its incidence varies from 0.3% in patients with otherwise normal heart to 4.3% in patients with congenital heart disease. In the majority of the patients, a right superior vena cava is present as well, but rarely the right anterior cardinal vein degenerates resulting in the absence of the normal right superior vena cava. The blood from the right side is carried by the persistent left superior vena cava to the right atrium through the coronary sinus. We report the case of a patient with a persistent left superior vena cava and absence of right superior vena cava identified by chance during a chest radiograph and computed tomography examination for investigation of chronic pulmonary obstructive disease. The patient had no congenital heart disease and the blood from the right side was drained by the persistent left superior vena cava into the right atrium through the coronary sinus.

Tratamento cirúrgico da conexão anômala parcial das veias pulmonares em veia cava superior Surgical treatment of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the superior vena cava  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available OBJETIVO: O tratamento cirúrgico da conexão anômala das veias pulmonares em veia cava superior, associada ao defeito septal atrial tipo seio venoso, é bem estabelecido e transcorre com baixa mortalidade e morbidade. Com a finalidade de diminuir a incidência de estenose ou oclusão da veia cava superior direita, especialmente quando associada à presença de veia cava superior esquerda, o apêndice atrial direito foi utilizado para ampliar a veia cava superior direita, após o desvio das veias pulmonares para o átrio esquerdo. MÉTODOS: No período entre junho de 1986 e setembro de 2008, foram operados 95 pacientes, consecutivos, portadores desta anomalia com drenagem em veia cava superior direita e porção alta do átrio direito. A idade variou de 6 meses a 68 anos e o sexo feminino predominou com 50 casos. RESULTADOS: No material apresentado, não ocorreu nenhum óbito na fase de pós-operatório imediato ou tardio. O ritmo cardíaco permaneceu sempre sinusal e não ocorreram complicações na evolução. CONCLUSÃO: O presente trabalho demonstra a aplicabilidade da técnica descrita, com resultados favoráveis em relação a mortalidade, distúrbios de ritmo e complicações na região da veia cava superior direita.OBJECTIVE: Surgical treatment of anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the superior vena cava, associated with sinus venous atrial septal defect, is well established and correlates with low mortality and morbidity. In order to reduce the incidence of stenosis or occlusion of the right superior vena cava, especially when associated with the presence of left superior vena cava, the right atrial appendage was used to enlarge the right superior vena cava, after the diversion of the anomalous pulmonary veins for the left atrium. METHODS: Between June 1986 and September 2008, 95 consecutive patients were operated with anomalous drainage in the superior right vena cava and high right atrium. Ages ranged from 6 months to 68 years and females predominated with 50 cases. RESULTS: There was no death in the immediate or late post operative care. The sinus cardiac rhythm was preserved in all cases and there was no complications in the late follow up. CONCLUSION: This paper demonstrates the applicability of the technique described, with favorable results on mortality, rhythm disturbances and complications in the right superior vena cava.

Clinical application of preoperative endovascular management for jugular paraganglioma  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Objective: To investigate the clinical value of preoperative angiography and embolization managements for jugular paraganglioma. Methods: Fourteen patients with jugular paraganglioma were carefully evaluated with CT, MRI and clinical ENT exams. Bilateral carotid and affected-side vertebral angiography together with embolization of the feeding arteries and tumor nidi were performed in all 14 patients before surgery. Internal carotid artery balloon occlusive test was employed to check the function of Willis' circle in 7 patients. The tumors were excised within 48 hours after embolization. Results: Preoperative angiographic and embolization procedures of jugular paraganglioma were successfully accomplished in all patients. The mean blood loss during the surgery was obviously less than usual. Of seven cases who passed the internal carotid artery balloon occlusive test,carotid artery ligation was adopted in 3. No new symptoms and signs of nervous system developed after the surgery and during the follow-up period. Conclusion: The angiography and embolization of feeding-arteries and tumor nidi, and the preoperative balloon occlusive test of carotid artery performed before the surgery of jugular paraganglioma are safe and reliable, which can be regarded as a routine preoperative preparation.

Pattern of inner retinal layers involvement in pigmented paravenous retinochoroidal atrophy as determined by SD-OCT: case report / Padrão de envolvimento das camadas retinianas internas na atrofia retinocoroidiana pigmentada paravenosa determinado pelo SD-OCT: relato de caso  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Atrofia retinocoroidiana pigmentada paravenosa é uma doença ocular caracterizada por atrofia localizada da coroide e da retina externa associada a áreas de pigmentação em espícula óssea depositada ao longo das veias retinianas. Como é uma condição rara, há pouca informação na literatura sobre o padr [...] ão de envolvimento das camadas mais internas da retina. Relatamos o caso de um homem branco, de 41 anos, encaminhado incialmente para avaliação de glaucoma. Apresentava à fundoscopia áreas de atrofia retinocoroidiana com pigmentação leve sobrejacente, estendendo-se desde o disco óptico e seguindo ao longo da veia temporal inferior da retina em ambos os olhos. Por meio de diferentes protocolos da tomografia de coerência óptica de domínio espectral (SD-OCT) identificamos um afinamento significante das camadas internas da retina ao longo da veia temporal inferior, mas com uma área de intervalo lúcido ao redor do disco óptico. A perimetria automatizada acromática revelou um escotoma arqueado superior absoluto, poupando a fixação central em ambos os olhos e correspondendo às áreas de atrofia ao longo das veias retinianas (boa correlação anátomo-funcional). Este padrão de envolvimento das camadas retinianas internas não havia sido descrito anteriormente. Acreditamos que o SD-OCT contribuiu significativamente para a descrição anatômica desse caso e que estes novos achados devam ser considerados e correlacionados com o estado funcional ao avaliar esses pacientes. Abstract in english Pigmented paravenous retinochoroidal atrophy is an ocular disease characterized by outer retina and choroidal atrophy often with overlying intraretinal bone spicule pigment deposition along the retinal veins. As a rare condition, there is scant information in the literature regarding the pattern of [...] inner retinal layers involvement. We present a case of a 41-year-old white man initially referred for a glaucoma evaluation. Fundoscopy revealed patches of retinochoroidal atrophy and light pigmentation extending from the optic nerve head along the inferior-temporal retinal veins in both eyes. Using different spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) protocols we identified a significant thinning of the inner retinal layers along the inferior-temporal veins, but with a lucid interval surrounding the optic nerve head. Standard automated perimetry revealed a superior absolute arcuate scotoma sparing the central fixation (good structure-functional correlation). This pattern of inner retinal layers involvement was not previously described. We believe SD-OCT added significantly to the anatomical description of this case. Physicians should consider these new anatomical findings and correlate them with functional status while assessing these patients.

Arritmias precoces foram tratadas, agressivamente, com cardioversão. RESULTADOS: O seguimento médio foi de 23,9±17 meses e ocorreram 3 óbitos no pós-operatório. Dez pacientes necessitaram de cardioversão elétrica no pós-operatório; 87% apresentavam ritmo sinusal na última consulta e 33% estavam em uso de amiodarona. CONCLUSÃO: Isolamento das veias pulmonares associado à cirurgia da valva mitral é uma técnica efetiva e segura na manutenção de ritmo sinusal em pacientes com fribilação atrial permanente.

Abstract in english : Global communications consultants interest in internal communications has dramatically increased in the past few years, due to the impact that they have in four great scopes of the organizational management. It exists a wide consensus on the role of the internal communications to align to the memb [...] ers of an organization. This implies, to orient them on which behaviors are necessary to make real the strategic goals of the organization; and, at the same time, to fortify those behaviors that constitute the identity and shaped the corporate values. The article focuses also on the importance of having colleagues who not only know, but also value the organization offers that aim to retain and get them motivated. Finally, every day is more evident and relevant than an organization ties with its environment and makes their colleagues become contributors of its corporate responsibility.

Left Internal Jugular Vein Thrombosis Due to a Lung Tumor  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Deep vein thrombosis is a common disease among Caucasians but is rare in Asia.Venous thrombosis may be fatal, for example by a pulmonary embolism and right or leftatrial thrombosis. Alternatively, deep vein thrombosis may follow a benign pattern such asfemoral and popliteal vein thrombosis. Theories abound regarding the causes of deep veinthrombosis, with the most common theories being long-term stasis and lack of exercise.Internal jugular vein thrombosis is a rare but potentially fatal disease with various causes. Inthe pre-antibiotics era, this disease was frequently associated with deep neck infection.Recently however, local trauma, central catheterization, and repeated intravenous injectionswith drugs have become the leading causes of thrombosis. Spontaneous internal jugularvein thrombosis may occur in connection with a neoplasm, termed Trousseau's syndrome.This investigation reports a case of lung cancer associated with internal jugular vein thrombosis.

Jugular neck dissection for NO neck supraglottic carcinoma  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Appropriate management of patients with supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma and negative findings in the neck is still controversial. A prospective and retrospective study comprised 193 patients who were treated primary surgically between 1976 and 1993. They all had clinically and ultrasound negative findings on the neck (NO). Supraglottic carcinomas usually spread regionally. Metastases develop in the jugular group, between level II-IV. The incidence of metastases has been reported to vary from...

Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Avaliar a incidência, o perfil clínico e as estratégias operatórias dos ferimentos de Veia Cava Inferior (VCI. MÉTODOS: Foram analisados retrospectivamente os prontuários de 76 doentes com ferimento de VCI atendidos nos dois prontossocorros de Manaus, no período de janeiro de 1997 a julho de 2002. Mecanismo de lesão, mortalidade, estado hemodinâmico, índice de trauma abdominal penetrante (PATI, achados intra-operatórios e conduta cirúrgica foram estudados. RESULTADOS: Quarenta e nove (65% doentes sofreram lesão por arma branca, 26 (34% por arma de fogo e um por traumatismo abdominal fechado. Quarenta e um (54% doentes sobreviveram. Quase todos chegaram acordados, entretanto 40% estavam hipotensos (pressão arterial sistólica BACKGROUND: Injuries of inferior vena cava (IVC require immediate and definitive action. Our objective is to evaluate the incidence, the clinical findings and the operative approach to IVC injuries. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 76 patients with IVC injuries treated in two Emergency Hospitals of Manaus, AM, Brazil, from January 1997 to July 2002. Mechanisms of injuries, mortality, hemodynamic status, penetrating abdominal trauma index (PATI, intraoperative findings and surgical approach were among assessed data. RESULTS: Fourty-nine patients (65% had stab wounds, 26 (34% gunshot wounds, and one had blunt abdominal trauma. Fourty-one (54% patients survived. Almost all patients entered the emergency room awake, although 40% were hypotensive (systolic blood pressure < 70 mmHg, and the penetrating abdominal trauma index average was above 40. At laparotomy, active retroperitoneal bleeding or an expanding retroperitoneal hematoma were detected in all cases. Caval injury was retro-hepatic in 21 patients, and infrahepatic in the other 55. The prevailing surgical approach was lateral repair in 65 patients. Atrial-caval shunting was tried in six patients, with only three survivals. CONCLUSIONS: We concluded that IVC injury remains a highly lethal injury and there is a close relationship with urban violence. This study emphasizes that successful outcome depends on prompt volume restoration, avoidance of hypothermia and a stratified selective surgical approach.

Therapeutic embolization of the dural arteriovenous malformation involving the jugular bulb.  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Pulsatile tinnitus is a rarely occurring symptom of vascular origin. Most frequently, the symptoms are due to an arteriovenous malformation, to a tumor of the jugular glomus or to a local arterial stenosis. A 39-yr-old Korean male suffering from pulsatile tinnitus of the left ear was diagnosed to have dural arteriovenous malformation of the jugular bulb. Magnetic resonance imaging and angiography revealed a high-velocity vascular lesion encroaching the internal jugular vein and sigmoid sinuse...

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Este trabalho teve como objetivo o estudo da regeneração nervosa através da contagem de neurônios comparando duas técnicas cirúrgicas no tratamento da perda de substância nervosa nos membros inferiores em 15 ratos. Inicialmente obteve-se tubo de veia de 12mm de comprimento retirado da jugular extern [...] a esquerda. A seguir, opera-se os dois membros inferiores, expondo o nervo tibial de cada lado e ressecando um segmento de 8 mm do nervo, simulando, ao mesmo tempo, a perda de substância e a obtenção do enxerto nervoso autógeno. A reparação da perda de substância do lado esquerdo consistiu numa enxertia convencional simples para a reparação de lesão nervosa por meio de sutura microcirúrgica. A do membro inferior direito foi pela tubulização com 8 mm de enxerto de músculo quadríceps denaturado com nitrogênio líquido coberto com veia jugular. Após quatro meses, os animais foram submetidos à nova cirurgia para exposição dos nervos tibiais ao marcador neuronal Fluoro Gold®. Após 48 horas, foram perfundidos e o segmento medular entre L3 e S1 foi removido e posteriormente cortado em secções de 40 µm. Houve contagem neuronal de todos os cortes e não foram verificadas diferenças estatísticas entre as duas técnicas cirúrgicas. Abstract in english The purpose of this work was to study nervous regeneration through neurons counts by comparing two surgical techniques for addressing nervous gaps on 15 rats' lower limbs. Initially, a 12-mm long vein tube from the left outer jugular was obtained, and then both lower limbs are operated, exposing the [...] tibial nerve at each side and performing a resection of an 8-mm nerve segment, at the same time simulating a gap and an autogenous nerve graft. Left gap repair consisted of a usual conventional graft for nervous injury repair by means of microsurgical suture. The gap repair on right lower limbs was made through quadriceps muscle, treated with liquid nitrogen, covered with an 8-mm tube of jugular vein. After four months, the animals were submitted to a new surgery for exposing tibial nerves to the Fluoro-Gold® neuronal marker. After 48 hours, the rats were perfused and medullar segment between L3 and S1 was removed and subsequently cut into 40µm sections. Neurons on all sections were counted, and no statistical differences were found between both surgical techniques.

[Pathogenesis of congenital aneurysm of the internal jugular veins].  

Science.gov (United States)

Congenital aneurysm of the internal jugular veins is a developmental anomaly of the venous wall occurring as a consequence of hypoplasia of the smooth-muscle element of the media and deficiency of the elastic framework. The disease is marked by a progressive course linked with enlargement of the aneurysm and thinning of its walls. Hemoliquorodynamic disorders uncorrectable by drugs develop in childhood and are registered during rheoencephalography. In view of this the existence of an aneurysm is an indication for operative treatment for restoration of adequate drainage of venous blood from the head. PMID:8264163

Anatomical study of the superior jugular bulb by use of high-resolution computed tomography  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Using high-resolutiion computed tomography, the relationship between the superior jugular bulb and the tympanic cavity was analysed in 40 subjects. Until now, the superior jugular bulb was thought to lie below the floor of the hypotympanum, however, the following observations were made from this study: In 48 (60%) out of 80 temporal bones (40 cases), the top of the superior jugular bulb was situated in the higher level than the floor of the hypotympanum. In 9 cases, the jugular bulb was separated from the tympanic cavity by only thin bony wall. This finding was noticed on the right side in 8 cases and was bilateral in a case. In 21 cases (52.5%), the right jugular bulb was situated in higher level than the left, and the reverse finding was noticed only in 4 cases (10.0%). The reason why the right jugular bulb is frequently higher than the left was thought to be related to its function. Namely, the jugular bulb is useful to absorb the pulsation of the carotid artery, therefore, it was considerd that the anatomical and physiological differences between the right and left carotid arteries induce the asymmetry of the jugular bulbs.

Tratamento da síndrome da veia cava superior Treatment of superior vena cava syndrome  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A veia cava superior é formada pela união das duas veias inominadas, direita e esquerda, e localiza-se no mediastino médio, à direita da artéria aorta e anteriormente à traquéia. A síndrome da veia cava superior representa um conjunto de sinais (dilatação das veias do pescoço, pletora facial, edema de membros superiores, cianose e sintomas (cefaléia, dispnéia, tosse, edema de membro superior, ortopnéia e disfagia decorrentes da obstrução do fluxo sanguíneo através da veia cava superior em direção ao átrio direito. A obstrução pode ser causada por compressão extrínseca, invasão tumoral, trombose ou por dificuldade do retorno venoso ao coração secundária a doenças intra-atriais ou intraluminais. Aproximadamente 73% a 97% dos casos de síndrome da veia cava superior ocorrem durante a evolução de processos malignos intratorácicos. A maioria dos pacientes com a síndrome secundária a neoplasias malignas é tratada sem necessidade de cirurgia, através de radioterapia ou quimioterapia, ou através da colocação de stents endoluminais. Quando a síndrome é de etiologia benigna, o tratamento é feito através de medidas clínicas (anticoagulação, elevação da cabeça, etc. ou, em casos refratários, através de angioplastia, colocação de stents endoluminais e cirurgia.The superior vena cava is formed by the union of the right and left brachiocephalic veins. It is located in the middle mediastinum, to the right of the aorta and anterior to the trachea. Superior vena cava syndrome consists of a group of signs (dilation of the veins in the neck, facial swelling, edema of the upper limbs, and cyanosis and symptoms (headache, dyspnea, cough, orthopnea and dysphagia caused by the obstruction of blood flow through the superior vena cava to the right atrium. This obstruction can be caused by extrinsic compression, tumor invasion or thrombosis. Such obstruction may also occur as a result of insufficient venous return secondary to intra-atrial or intraluminal diseases. From 73% to 93% of all cases of superior vena cava syndrome occur during the development of an intrathoracic tumor. Most patients presenting superior vena cava syndrome secondary to malignant neoplasms are treated without surgery, through radiotherapy, chemotherapy or the use of intraluminal stents. When the etiology of superior vena cava syndrome is benign, it can be treated with clinical measures (anticoagulation, raising the head, etc. or, in refractory cases, with angioplasty, stents or surgery.

Internal jugular vein stenosis is common in patients presenting with neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome.  

Science.gov (United States)

Previous magnetic resonance imaging studies have shown abnormalities of the internal jugular veins in patients with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), but this finding has largely been ignored. We, thus, prospectively performed diagnostic brachiocephalic venograms in all patients with diagnosed neurogenic TOS from April 2008 to December 2011 (mean age, 42.6; r, 16-68; 77.8% women and 22.2% men). Stenosis of the left internal jugular vein, left subclavian vein, right internal jugular vein, and right subclavian vein were assessed, and significant stenoses of these vessels were seen in 63.49%, 65.08%, 60.32%, and 68.25% of patients, respectively. Internal jugular vein stenosis was not present in 23.81%, present unilaterally in 28.57%, and present bilaterally in 47.62% of patients. Subclavian vein stenosis was not present in 17.46%, present unilaterally in 28.57%, and present bilaterally in 53.97% of patients. Phi coefficients of correlation were 0.067 between left internal jugular vein and left subclavian vein stenoses, 0.061 between right internal jugular vein and right subclavian vein stenoses, and 0 between any internal jugular vein and any subclavian vein stenoses, indicating there is no correlation between jugular vein stenosis and subclavian vein stenosis in these patients. We conclude that right and left internal jugular vein stenosis is common in patients with neurogenic TOS symptoms. Treatment of internal jugular vein stenosis could potentially benefit these patients, and the implications of these findings warrant further study. PMID:24462538

Jugular foramen meningiomas. Review of the major surgical series  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Primary jugular foramen meningiomas are uncommon, with 96 previous cases published between 1992 and 2007. Exact location and extent of tumor were determined on the basis of radiologic and operative findings and used to develop a staging system. The mean age of patients was 39.4 years. The lesion was located on the right in 14 patients and on the left in 11 patients. The series identified 23 males and 58 females. The most common presenting clinical symptoms were hearing loss and tinnitus. Most clinical findings were middle ear mass and neck mass. Most meningiomas were World Health Organization grade I. The most common postoperative complications were lower cranial nerve paresis and facial nerve paresis. Surgical planning should consider that meningiomas usually invade the dura mater, cranial nerves, and surrounding bone. The surgeon should carefully collect detailed data about the tumor, and consult an otolaryngologist preoperatively for lower cranial nerve functions and hearing levels.(author)

Brachial to internal jugular vein bypass. A case report.  

Science.gov (United States)

The introduction of percutaneous dialysis catheter placement in the subclavian vein for temporary dialysis has contributed to the high incidence of occlusion of axillary and subclavian veins. We report the case of a 62-year-old male patient who had a history of a chronic dissection of the thoracic and abdominal aorta and who was on hemodialysis for chronic renal failure through a right radio-cephalic fistula. The patient complained of recurrent thrombophlebitis of the right upper extremity secondary to a subclavian vein thrombosis after catheter placement. A brachial to internal jugular vein bypass using ring 6 mm polytetrafluoroethylene graft was performed to alleviate the symptoms of venous hypertension and to preserve the function of the radio-cephalic fistula. This bypass is still patent 24 months after surgery. Many recent studies showed promising results with this bypass favouring its use in selected patients with subclavian venous lesions not amendable with balloon angioplasty and thrombolytic therapy.

Jugular vein wall repair after intravenous injection in equids.  

Science.gov (United States)

The evolution of the healing process of venous puncture wounds was studied macroscopically and light-microscopically in order to determine the time of venipuncture. Seven small equids of various ages, all in normal healthy condition, were experimentally injected in the external jugular vein with a physiological Hartmann solution at different times before euthanasia. Two types of needle diameters i.e. 16.5 G and 19 G, were used. A fairly good uniformity in the healing process was seen in the 7 animals. In most cases the lesions induced within 5 weeks before death were macroscopically visible, whereas older perforation sites became indistinct. Light-microscopic study enabled determination of the time lapse after intravenous injection. The needle diameter seemed hereby relatively unimportant. Points of reference were endothelium repair, presence of a fibrin plug containing red and white blood cells, neovascularization and healing of the connective tissue fibers. PMID:8091890

Jugular venous bulb oxygen saturation monitoring in arteriovenous malformation surgery.  

Science.gov (United States)

We describe a case in which jugular venous bulb oxygen saturation (SjvO2) monitoring proved useful during the surgical resection of an intracranial arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Surgical resection of large intracranial AVMs may be followed by normal perfusion pressure breakthrough with brain swelling, hyperemia, and subsequent problems in achieving hemostasis. SjvO2 monitoring during AVM embolization by interventional radiology has been shown to help in deciding whether embolization is sufficient to avoid such postresection hyperemia, but its use during surgical resection has not been described. In the case discussed, SjvO2 monitoring enabled assessment of the risk of postresection hyperemia preoperatively and permitted the degree and completeness of surgical AVM resection to be followed intraoperatively. During the normal perfusion pressure breakthrough bleeding which followed complete AVM resection, SjvO2 monitoring helped with safe management of the controlled hypotension that finally permitted hemostasis to be achieved.

Glomus jugulare tumor with intra- and extracranial extension. A case report with MRI study  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

A case of glomus jugulare tumor with intra- and extracranial extension is described. The patient was a 63-year-old woman who complained of gait and memory disturbances. On admission neurological examination revealed recent memory disturbance, left deafness, left XI, XIIth cranial nerve palsies, and slight ataxic gait. Roentgenogram of the skull showed an enlarged left jugular foramen with bone erosion. Plain X-ray computerized tomography scan (X-CT) indicated obstructive hydrocephalus and X-CT with contrast enhancement revealed a mass lesion in the left posterior cranial fossa extending through enlarged left jugular foramen to the extracranial space toward the level of C/sub 2/. Cerebral angiography demonstrated a large mass with blood supply from branches of left external carotid and vertebral arteries. The tumor stain was not remarkable. Left internal jugular vein was completely obstructed at the level of the second cervical vertebral body. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) clearly showed the tumor extending from the anterolateral portion to the second cervical vertebral body through the enlarged jugular foramen to the posterior cranial fossa. Brain stem and cerebellar hemisphere which were markedly compressed by the mass were clearly visualized. At first a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt was made and four weeks later subtotal removal of the tumor was undertaken. Histopathology of tumor specimen showed typical glomus jugulare tumor. MRI was considered to be very useful for the diagnosis and treatment of the glomus jugulare tumor with intra- and extracranial extension

Internal jugular vein vascular malformation presenting as mass at root of neck: a case report  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background We report a case of vascular malformation arising from internal jugular vein presenting as mass at root of neck with no clinical stigmata which to the best of our knowledge is the first reported case of an intrinsic vascular malformation arising from the internal jugular vein. Magnetic resonance imaging features of this new entity have been described. Case presentation A 27 year male presented with a gradually enlarging, asymptomatic swelling on left supraclavicular region with normal overlying skin. A soft mass, about 7 × 7 cm with restricted mobility was found with normal cranial nerve function. Fine needle aspiration cytology showed a hemorrhagic aspirate. Doppler showed a mass displacing left carotid artery posteriorly while left internal jugular vein was not visualized. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a well defined mass isointense to hypointense on T1 weighted and hyperintense on T2 weighted and STIR images with fluid-fluid levels. On exploration, a vascular mass arising from left internal jugular vein was found with good tissue planes, which was excised after ligating the patent internal jugular vein above and below the lesion. Histopathologic examination confirmed the diagnosis of vascular malformation. Conclusion The diagnosis of intrinsic vascular malformation arising from internal jugular vein should be kept in differential while dealing with masses at root of neck and magnetic resonance imaging features may help in the pre-operative diagnosis of this entity.

Sonographic findings of the internal jugular vein valve in normal children  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

To describe the sonographic findings of the valve in the internal jugular vein in normal children. Seventy children (5-15 years, average age 10.8 years, 36 boys and 34 girls) were recruited for the study. The number of cusps, length and insertion sites of the valve in the internal jugular vein was examined. Sex differences were investigated, in addition to the symmetry of the valves found in both of the veins. In all children, valve was found in either one or both internal jugular veins. Sixteen percents of the children had valve on one side only, while eighty four percents showed on both sides. All the one side were found on the right side only. Nine percents of the valves in the internal jugular veins of the children were bicuspid and ninety one percents were unicuspid. The length of the cusps was on the average, 7.59 ± 2.77 mm. The insertion of the cusps was on the average, 6.75 ± 2.59 mm (range: 0-12.0 mm), proximal to the confluence of the subclavian and internal jugular veins to form the brachiocephalic vein. There was no significant statistical difference of the number of cusps, length and insertion sites of the valves on both sides and sex distinction. A valve in internal jugular vein is identified in all cases on ultrasonography. There was no significant statistical difference of the number of cusps, length and insertion sites of the valves on both sides and sex distinction.

Ainda valoriza o sifão carotídeo fisiologicamente e julga que o mesmo participa da hemodinâmica quando o paciente se encontra caído (em plano horizontal com hipotensão arterial, favorecendo a chegada sanguínea ao cérebro, evitando a anóxia e descerebração consequente dentro de determinados limites, sendo mais um meio de defesa do organismo.The author considers of atmost importance the anatomical arterial-venous conjugate, represented by the internal carotid artery and the cavernous sinus, as well as the carotid venous plexus which covers the internal carotid artery within the petrous portion of the temporal bone. He believes that besides protecting the vascular arterial wall in acute episodes of hypertension, it can also contribute to the mechanism of the carotid blood flow. This is due to the fact that he considers the physiological conditions of the cavernous sinus in relation to the others dural venous sinuses and the endocranial venous system and its cavernous constitution, which differs from other venous blood canals with their own venous physiology and different functions. He attempts to compare it to the rest of the body areas where cavernous plexuses are localized and where venous pressure reachs high proportions, in comparison with the other regions without this morphologic constitution. He establishes a correlation resulting form the cerebro-vascular resistence mechanism, the participation of which he considers as differing from others dural sinuses and encephalic veins. He also emphasizes physiologically the carotid siphon and believes that it participates in the hemodynamics, when the patient is lying down (in a horizontal position with hypotension, facilitating the blood access to the brain, thus avoiding consequent anoxia and decerebration, within certain limits, and constituting an additional mean of body defense.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese INTRODUÇÃO: A trombose de veia porta foi considerada contraindicação ao transplante de fígado no passado em razão da elevada morbi-mortalidade. Diversos avanços permitiram melhora dos resultados. OBJETIVO: Revisão dos avanços e das estratégias cirúrgicas utilizadas para realização do transplante de [...] fígado na vigência de trombose de veia porta. MÉTODO: Revisão da literatura nas bases de dados Medline, Scielo, Lilacs cruzando os descritores: portal vein thrombosis, liver transplantation, vascular complications, jump graft, graft failure, multivisceral transplant. Foram estudados a epidemiologia, fatores de risco, classificação, diagnóstico, estratégias cirúrgicas e resultados. CONCLUSÃO: A trombose de veia porta deixou de ser contraindicação para o transplante hepático. O cirurgião dispõe atualmente de uma série de estratégias para realização do transplante, variando conforme o grau da trombose. Apesar de implicar em maior morbidade e taxas de re-trombose, os resultados do transplante na presença de trombose portal são semelhantes aos observados nas séries habituais. Abstract in english BACKGROUND: Portal vein thrombosis was considered a contraindication for liver transplantation in the past because of the high morbidity and mortality rates. Many advances made the results better. AIM: Review the advances and surgical strategies for liver transplantation in presence of portal vein t [...] hrombosis. METHOD: Survey of publications in Medline, Scielo and Lilacs databases. Headings crossed: portal vein thrombosis, liver transplantation, vascular complications, jump graft, graft failure, multivisceral transplant. Data analyzed were epidemiology, risk factors, classification, diagnosis, surgical strategies and outcomes. CONCLUSION: Portal vein thrombosis is not a contraindication for liver transplantation anymore. There are many strategies to perform the liver transplantation in this condition, depending on portal vein thrombosis grade. Regardless higher morbidity and re-trhombosis rates, the outcomes of liver transplantation in portal vein thrombosis are similar to series without portal vein thrombosis.

Jugular vascular access port implantation for frequent, long-term blood sampling in cats: methodology, assessment, and comparison with jugular catheters.  

Science.gov (United States)

Long-term, frequent venous access for diagnostic, therapeutic, or research purposes in cats is problematic. Frequent blood sampling over extended periods is necessary for some therapeutic regimes and often required for clinical research in veterinary science. In this paper, we describe the implantation of vascular access ports (VAPs) and assess their use for repeated blood sampling over 16 weeks and 38 weeks, as well as the use of jugular catheters for one week. The VAP placement procedure was well-tolerated with few minor complications (minor swelling, contusion, or superficial dermatitis from self-trauma), which were not observed when neck bandages were applied immediately after surgery. Thromboembolism occurred in two cats, but did not occur after switching to a smaller catheter with a rounded tip and taurolidine-citrate locking solution. Although duration of access was much longer with VAPs compared to jugular catheters, patency rates were similar (89% (n=28) to 92% (n=12) after 16 weeks and 75% (n=12) after 38 weeks for VAPs; 88% (n=49) after one week for jugular catheters). Behavioural reactions to blood collection from 30 cats-assessed over 16 weeks and comprising 378 collections-were absent or minor in 99% of collections. These findings indicate that VAPs offer a viable alternative to jugular catheters for studies requiring frequent blood sampling and lasting more than 2 weeks. PMID:23706903

Human Internal Jugular Valve M-mode Ultrasound Characterization.  

Science.gov (United States)

In humans the mechanism governing the internal jugular vein (IJV) valve opening and closure is still unclear. M-mode is used in echo-cardiology for the heart valves assessment. Sometimes it was performed also in deep peripheral veins and in vena cava assessment, but never in the IJV valve. Aim of the present study is to investigate the IJV valves physiology in healthy volunteers, by means of both B and M-mode ultrasound. Eighty-three (83) healthy volunteers (35 Male, 48 Female, 25.7±6.7 y.o.), for a total of 166 IJVs, were enrolled. The entire cohort underwent IJVs high-resolution B and M-mode evaluation, in standardized postural and respiratory conditions. Presence, motility, and number of cusps, as well as their opening and closure mechanism have been assessed. Bilateral valve absence occurred in 13/83 (16%), whereas at least a one side absence was recorded in 38/83 (46% of the cohort) (p<0.0356). Valve leaflets were always mobile and respectively bi-cusps in 34%, or mono-cusp in 27%. The latter was significantly more frequent on the left side (35%) than on the right side (19%) (p<0.0013). In supine, M-mode valve opening was synchronous with the cardiac cycle. To the contrary, in an upright position, the valve remained always open and saddled to the wall, independently from the cardiac cycle. In healthy subjects, the IJV valve leaflets are always mobile, but the significant rate of mono and bilateral absence could suggest a progressive phylogenetic importance loss of such apparatus. M-mode ultrasound enhances the characterization of IJV valve, for this reason it should be taken into consideration to routinely add it to the cerebral venous return investigation. PMID:24712644

Jugular venous pooling during lowering of the head affects blood pressure of the anesthetized giraffe  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

How blood flow and pressure to the giraffe's brain are regulated when drinking remains debated. We measured simultaneous blood flow, pressure, and cross-sectional area in the carotid artery and jugular vein of five anesthetized and spontaneously breathing giraffes. The giraffes were suspended in the upright position so that we could lower the head. In the upright position, mean arterial pressure (MAP) was 193 +/- 11 mmHg (mean +/- SE), carotid flow was 0.7 +/- 0.2 l/min, and carotid cross-sectional area was 0.85 +/- 0.04 cm(2). Central venous pressure (CVP) was 4 +/- 2 mmHg, jugular flow was 0.7 +/- 0.2 l/min, and jugular cross-sectional area was 0.14 +/- 0.04 cm(2) (n = 4). Carotid arterial and jugular venous pressures at head level were 118 +/- 9 and -7 +/- 4 mmHg, respectively. When the head was lowered, MAP decreased to 131 +/- 13 mmHg, while carotid cross-sectional area and flow remained unchanged. Cardiac output was reduced by 30%, CVP decreased to -1 +/- 2 mmHg (P < 0.01), and jugular flow ceased as the jugular cross-sectional area increased to 3.2 +/- 0.6 cm(2) (P < 0.01), corresponding to accumulation of approximately 1.2 l of blood in the veins. When the head was raised, the jugular veins collapsed and blood was returned to the central circulation, and CVP and cardiac output were restored. The results demonstrate that in the upright-positioned, anesthetized giraffe cerebral blood flow is governed by arterial pressure without support of a siphon mechanism and that when the head is lowered, blood accumulates in the vein, affecting MAP

Valsalva and gravitational variability of the internal jugular vein and common femoral vein: Ultrasound assessment  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Purpose: Central venous cannulation via the common femoral vein is an important starting point for many interventions. The purpose of this study was to determine the optimum conditions for cannulation of the femoral vein and to compare these with the relative changes in the internal jugular vein. Methods: High-resolution 2D ultrasound was utilised to determine variability of the calibre of the femoral and internal jugular veins in 10 healthy subjects. Venous diameter was assessed during the Valsalva manoeuvre and in different degrees of the Trendelenburg position. Results: The Valsalva manoeuvre significantly increased the size of the femoral and internal jugular veins. There was a relatively greater increase in femoral vein diameter when compared with the internal jugular vein of 40 and 29%, respectively. Changes in body inclination (Trendelenburg position) did not significantly alter the luminal diameter of the femoral vein. However, it significantly increased internal jugular vein diameter. Conclusions: Femoral vein cannulation is augmented by the Valsalva manoeuvre but not significantly altered by the gravitational position of the subject

A combined extradural-posterior petrous and suboccipital approach to the jugular foramen tumours.  

Science.gov (United States)

An approach which improves on the conventional suboccipital craniectomy was used to explore a jugular foramen, a hypoglossal neurinoma, and a tentorial meningioma. A postero-medial mastoidectomy supplemented by the conventional suboccipital craniectomy made it possible to expose the entire sigmoid sinus. Subsequent medial retraction of the exposed sigmoid sinus and continuous dura mater and the extradural removal of petrous bone around the jugular foramen exposed the whole extracranial portion of the tumours. The tumours were totally removed by this approach in which the extradural route corresponded to the extracranial portion of the tumours and the suboccipital route to the intracranial portion. Facial nerve and hearing disturbances, which are frequent complications of the previous approaches, did not occur in our cases.

Linac-based stereotactic body radiation therapy for treatment of glomus jugulare tumors  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Background: Glomus jugulare tumors are rare, typically benign, tumors that arise from the neural crest cells that are associated with the autonomic ganglia in and around the jugular bulb. Treatment options for glomus jugulare tumors include embolization followed by resection, fractionated external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), and/or stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). Materials and methods: 18 patients were treated with linear-accelerator based stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) between May 2002 and November 2008. Fifteen patients (83%) had single glomus jugulare tumors and 3 patients had bilateral glomus jugulare tumors (although each of these patients had a single tumor targeted). The median tumor volume was 5.83 cm3 (range, 0.32-35.47 cm3). Ten tumors (56%) were previously untreated, and 8 (44%) tumors were persistent after previous surgical resection. One patient had undergone previous EBRT and 2 patients were previously treated with Gamma Knife radiosurgery to the intracranial portion of their tumor, with planned SBRT to the extracranial portion 2-4 months later at our institution. The median prescribed dose was 20 Gy in 3 fractions (range: 16-25 Gy in 1-5 fx) to the 80% isodose line. The median prescription coverage of the tumor was 93.6% (range: 83-98.72%). Results: Median follow-up for the entire cohort was 22 months. All the patients were alive at the time of the last follow-up with imaging available for review. The tumor was stable in 17 patients and decreased in size in one patient - yielding a local control rate of 100%. No patients experienced any new or worsening treatment-related neurologic deficits. Conclusions: SBRT is a safe and efficacious treatment modality for glomus jugulare tumors.

Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale using the internal jugular venous approach  

Science.gov (United States)

Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale is routinely performed using the transfemoral approach, which is safe and technically easy. Our case represents the rare situation where the procedure needs to be performed using the right internal jugular venous approach. According to our best knowledge this is the first report of a patent foramen ovale closure procedure with access through the internal jugular with necessity to advance the guide wire and transseptal sheath into the left ventricle. Developing alternative techniques of transcatheter patent foramen ovale closure seems to be especially important in rare cases where transfemoral access is unavailable.

Sumatriptan does not affect arteriovenous oxygen differences in jugular and cubital veins in normal human subjects  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

Arteriovenous anastomoses (AVAs) may open up during migraine attacks. In studies with anaesthetized and bilaterally vagosympatectomized pigs, triptans reduce AVA blood flow and increase the arteriovenous O-2 difference (AVDO(2)). To investigate whether subcutaneous sumatriptan 6 mg could induce changes in the AVDO(2), we measured the AVDO(2) in the external jugular vein in healthy subjects. We also measured the AVDO(2) in the internal jugular and cubital veins. There were no changes in AVDO(2) after subcutaneous sumatriptan, probably because AVA blood flow is limited in humans with an intact sympathetic nervous system Udgivelsesdato: 2008/10

Colapsibilidade da Veia Cava Inferior e sinais e sintomas de insuficiência cardíaca: novos insights e possíveis associações / Inferior Vena Cava collapsibility and heart failure signs and symptoms: new insights about possible links  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese FUNDAMENTO: Nos pacientes com Insuficiência Cardíaca Crônica (ICC) foram propostas medidas ultrassonográficas do Índice de Colapsibilidade da Veia Cava Inferior (ICVCI) para obter uma avaliação e classificação minuciosa da congestão hemodinâmica. OBJETIVO: A finalidade deste estudo era correlacionar [...] os achados no exame físico com o ICVCI em pacientes com ICC. MÉTODOS: De acordo com um projeto de coorte retrospectivo, analisamos 54 pacientes com ICC, direita ou biventricular, classe NYHA III. O plano era determinar se alguma faixa de ICVCI basal poderia predizer uma persistência ou agravamento da congestão clínica achada no final do acompanhamento subsequente (isto é, após 1-2 meses do tratamento oral otimizado). Para essa finalidade, os pacientes foram subdivididos em três grupos de acordo com o valor de ICVCI basal: ? 15% (13 pts), 16 - 40% (21 pts) e > 40% (20 pts). Diversos critérios clínicos de congestão foram comparados por meio dos três grupos e incorporados subsequentemente ao modelo multivariado de Cox. RESULTADOS: Preditores multivariados de alto escore de congestão foram distensão da veia jugular (FC: 13,38 95% IC: 2,13 - 84 p = 0,0059) e estertores (FC: 11 95% C.I : 1,45 - 83,8 p = 0,0213). O ICVCI ? 15% esteve sempre associado com um alto escore de congestão na segunda visita; todavia, o ICVCI o ? 15% não predisse um alto escore de congestão na segunda visita. CONCLUSÃO: No âmbito da ICC, um baixo ICVCI não predisse, em forma confiável, um elevado escore de congestão. Não obstante, o conjunto com ICVCI ? 15% sempre se achou associado com sinais e sintomas de uma ICC descompensada, tanto do lado direito como do esquerdo. (Arq Bras Cardiol. 2012; [online].ahead print, PP.0-0) Abstract in english BACKGROUND: In chronic heart failure patients (CHF), ultrasound measurement of inferior vena cava collapsibility index (IVCCI) has been proposed to yield careful assessment and grading of the hemodynamic congestion. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to correlate the findings of physical exami [...] nation with IVCCI in CHF patients. METHODS: According to a retrospective cohort design, we analyzed 54 CHF patients with right or biventricular CHF, belonging to III NYHA class. We planned to determine whether any basal IVCCI range would be able to predict persistent or worsening clinical congestion found at the end of subsequent follow up (i.e. after 1-2 months of oral optimized therapy). For this purpose, the patients were subdivided by three groups according to the basal IVCCI value: ? 15% (13 pts), 16 - 40% (21 pts) and > 40% (20 pts).Several clinical criteria of congestion were compared across the three groups and subsequently entered in the Cox multivariate model. RESULTS: Multivariate predictors of high congestion score were jugular venous distension (HR: 13,38 95% C.I.: 2,13 - 84 p = 0,0059) and rales (HR: 11 95% C.I : 1,45 - 83,8 p = 0,0213). IVCCI ? 15% was always associated with high congestion score at the second visit; but IVCCI ? 15% failed to predict high congestion score at the second visit. CONCLUSION: In CHF setting, low IVCCI did not reliably predict high congestion score. Nevertheless, the cluster with IVCCI ? 15% was always found associated with signs and symptoms from both right and left-sided decompensated CHF.

SOURCE OF DATA: The medical literature of the past 10 years was reviewed using the PubMed and MEDLINE search engines, with major focus on portal vein thrombosis and its clinical outcomes. The following keywords or expressions were used for the web search: portal vein thrombosis, extra-hepatic portal vein obstruction, prognosis, children, portal hypertension, esophagogastric varices. Additionally, we also reviewed the articles cited in the references of the initially selected papers, as well as relevant textbooks. SUMMARY OF THE FINDINGS: Portal vein thrombosis is one of the most common causes of portal hypertension among children. The initial clinical manifestation is characterized either by episodes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding or by splenomegaly on routine clinical examination. The major complications include upper gastrointestinal bleeding, hypersplenism secondary to splenomegaly, growth retardation, and portal biliopathy. The diagnosis is made by abdominal Doppler ultrasonography. Treatment is targeted at the complications and includes primary and secondary prophylaxis against upper gastrointestinal bleeding (which results from the rupture of esophageal varices, and portosystemic shunting in selected cases. CONCLUSIONS: Portal vein thrombosis is one of the major triggers of upper gastrointestinal bleeding in children. Bleeding episodes have a remarkable effect on the quality of life of affected patients. Thus, appropriate diagnosis and treatment are needed in order to reduce morbidity and mortality.

Endoscopic endonasal access to the jugular foramen: defining the surgical approach.  

Science.gov (United States)

Introduction?The endoscopic endonasal approach to the parapharyngeal space (PPS) and jugular foramen is not well defined. We sought to systematically define the important landmarks and limitations of this new surgical technique using an endoscopic transmaxillary transpterygoid corridor. Methods?Endoscopic dissection was performed in both sides of two latex-injected cadaver heads. Left-sided dissections were facilitated by the addition of a sublabial maxillary antrostomy. The pterygopalatine fossa, infratemporal fossa, and PPS were sequentially dissected and the endoscopic perspective was examined. Measurements were obtained from the surgical orifices to the upper cervical internal carotid artery (ICA) and internal jugular vein (IJV). Results?Successful access to the PPS and jugular foramen was achieved in each dissection. The lateral pterygoid plate, mandibular branch of the trigeminal nerve, middle meningeal artery, levator veli palatini muscle, Eustachian tube, and stylopharyngeal fascia were identified as landmarks for the upper cervical ICA and the IJV. The mean distance from the nasal sill was markedly greater than from an ipsilateral sublabial antrostomy. Conclusion?The endoscopic endonasal approach can provide adequate access to the PPS, carotid sheath, and jugular foramen. Multiple landmarks are useful to guide the dissection within these deep spaces and may facilitate the clinical application of this approach. PMID:24083127

Jugular venous pooling during lowering of the head affects blood pressure of the anesthetized giraffe.  

Science.gov (United States)

How blood flow and pressure to the giraffe's brain are regulated when drinking remains debated. We measured simultaneous blood flow, pressure, and cross-sectional area in the carotid artery and jugular vein of five anesthetized and spontaneously breathing giraffes. The giraffes were suspended in the upright position so that we could lower the head. In the upright position, mean arterial pressure (MAP) was 193 +/- 11 mmHg (mean +/- SE), carotid flow was 0.7 +/- 0.2 l/min, and carotid cross-sectional area was 0.85 +/- 0.04 cm(2). Central venous pressure (CVP) was 4 +/- 2 mmHg, jugular flow was 0.7 +/- 0.2 l/min, and jugular cross-sectional area was 0.14 +/- 0.04 cm(2) (n = 4). Carotid arterial and jugular venous pressures at head level were 118 +/- 9 and -7 +/- 4 mmHg, respectively. When the head was lowered, MAP decreased to 131 +/- 13 mmHg, while carotid cross-sectional area and flow remained unchanged. Cardiac output was reduced by 30%, CVP decreased to -1 +/- 2 mmHg (P giraffe cerebral blood flow is governed by arterial pressure without support of a siphon mechanism and that when the head is lowered, blood accumulates in the vein, affecting MAP.

Embolization of a fractured central venous catheter placed using the internal jugular approach  

Science.gov (United States)

INTRODUCTION Fracture and embolization of central venous catheters placed via the subclavian approach is well recognized, but fractured catheters placed via the internal jugular vein are extremely rare. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 65-year-old man presented with a catheter embolus after placement of a central venous port using the internal jugular approach undertaken to administer adjuvant chemotherapy for colon cancer with lung metastases. Goose neck and conformational loop snares were successfully used to percutaneously retrieve the severed catheter, which had migrated to the right ventricle. DISCUSSION Catheter fracture may occur even after placement via the internal jugular approach and may be underestimated because it is often asymptomatic. Interventional radiology techniques using goose-neck and conformational loop snares may be useful to retract an intravascular foreign body. CONCLUSION Imaging studies such as a chest X-ray are mandatory to check that the catheter tip is in the appropriate position during the entire follow-up period even if it was placed through the internal jugular vein.

The placement of an implantable chemoport via the external jugular vein as a primary route  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

To evaluate the usefulness and safety of the placement of an implantable chemoport via external jugular vein as a primary route for chemotherapy. Between January 2006 and June 2007, a total of 108 implantable chemoports were placed on 325 patients for chemotherapy via the external jugular vein as a primary route. We placed a 9.6 F single lumen chemoport using a surgical procedure (n = 89) and an interventional procedure (n = 19), and evaluated the duration of catheterization days and treatment complications. An implantable chemoport was successfully installed in all cases. Furthermore, the duration of catheterization ranged from 2 to 461 days (mean: 187 days, total catheter days: 21,994). In addition, a total of 85 chemoports were removed due to complications (n = 7) and termination of chemotherapy (n 78). A transient pulmonary air embolism occurring during a procedure was observed in one case. No pneumothorax or catheter malpositions were observed in the study subjects. Two chemoports were removed two days after implantation due to persistent tachycardia. In addition, five late complications occurred, which resulted in catheter occlusion (3 cases) (3%, 0.14/1000 catheter day) and infection in (2 cases) (2%, 0.09/1000 Catheter days). Lastly, no symptoms were attributed to a central vein thrombosis. The results of this study suggest that the implantation of chemoports via the external jugular vein is a safe procedure. Moreover, the selection of the external jugular vein as a primary route is useful in determining chemoport insertion locations.

Morphometry Of Jugular Foramen Of Dry Adult Human Skulls Of South India.  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Jugular foramen (JF lies between the occipital and the petrosal part of the temporal bone, and allows the passage of important nerves and vascular elements i.e. the glossopharyngeal, vagus, and accessory nerves and the internal jugular vein. It is a potential site for development of schwannomas, metastatic lesions, and infiltrative inflammatory processes from the surrounding structures such as middle ear. JF is difficult to approach surgically, but recent advanced techniques especially image intensifier to guide the suboccipital lateral approach have made the treatment possible despite the difficulties. Hence a detailed morphological and anatomical knowledge of this region is required. The morphologic dimensions, presence or absence of septation etc varies in various races and ethnic groups as reported in previous literature. But such detailed study has been lacking in south Indian population .Thus the present descriptive study was conducted in department of Anatomy, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore on 50 dried adult human skulls i.e. 100 JF of Dravidian (south Indian origin. The maximum antero-posterior and transverse diameter and depth of the jugular fossa of both sides were measured and septation was 6% on the right side and 8% on the left side using vernier calipers. The presence of spicules / septation of the jugular foramen were also observed on both sides. The obtained results presented variations regarding some parameters when compared to previous studies, thus making it evident the significance of race in the morphometric measurements and characteristics of the JF.

Angiography and clinical analysis of intracranial venous sinus in jugular foramen  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background By analyzing the digital subtraction angiography (DSA of intracranial venous sinus in jugular foramen segment, this article investigates the reasons for difficulty or failure of stent implanting in intracranial venous sinus, and attempts to formulate the clinical index, which can predict the difficulty of venous sinus stenting so as to improve the success rate of stent implantation. Methods All of 118 patients treated with venous sinus stent angioplasty were analyzed retrospectively, among whom 87 cases were diagnosed as cerebral venous stenosis and intracranial hypertension, and 31 patients were diagnosed as intractable pulsatile tinnitus caused by venous sinus stenosis. All patients received thrombolysis, anticoagulant and antiplatelet agents, and stent was implanted since the symptoms were not relieved. The two turning angles and diameter of cerebral venous sinus in the jugular foramen were measured to analyze their impact on stent implantation. Results Stent implantation of 115 cases were successful, while 3 patients did not complete the surgery due to the difficulty of stent implanting. The cerebral venous sinus in the jugular foramen was a transitional structure between the sigmoid sinus and internal jugular vein. Lateral view of angiography suggested "N" shape. The sum of two turning angles of venous sinus of 115 patients was (120.11± 30.32°, and the diameter of venous sinus was (5.10 ± 1.12mm. The sum of two turning angles of 3 patients who failed to implant stent was (86.37 ± 10.72°, and the diameter of venous sinus was (5.11 ± 0.37 mm. There were statistically significant differences between the angles of two groups (t = 23.420, P = 0.001, but no significant differences between the diameters of two groups ( t = 7.210, P = 0.352. Conclusion Lateral view of angiography suggested "N" shape of venous sinus in the jugular foramen. Difficulty of stent embedding would be caused by too small turning angles of venous sinus in the jugular foramen. However, the diameter of venous sinus did not influence the sugery ofstent implantation.

Importancia do conjugado arteria carotida interna-seio cavernoso / Physiological importance of the internal carotid artery-cavernous sinus conjugate  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese O autor considera necessário o conjugado anatômico artério-venoso representado pela artéria carótida interna e seio cavernoso, bem como o plexo venoso carotídeo que reveste a carótida interna dentro do canal carotídeo da porção petrosa do osso temporal. Julga que, além de proteger a parede vascular [...] arterial nas hipertensões arteriais súbitas, possa contribuir no mecanismo de controle e regulação do fluxo sanguíneo carotídeo, por considerar diferentes as condições fisiológicas do seio cavernoso em relação aos demais seios venosos durais e o sistema venoso endocraniano; consequente de sua constituição cavernosa, diferente dos demais canais sanguíneos venosos, com fisiollogia venosa própria e funções diferentes. Procura assemelhá-los aos demais distritos do organismo em que existem plexos cavernosos nos quais a tensão venosa chega a grandes proporções, comparada às demais regiões em que não existe esta constituição morfológica. Estabelece a correlação resultante ao mecanismo de resistência cérebro-vascular do qual considera participar, diferindo dos demais seios durais conjugado artéria carotida-beio cavernoso e veias encefálicas. Ainda valoriza o sifão carotídeo fisiologicamente e julga que o mesmo participa da hemodinâmica quando o paciente se encontra caído (em plano horizontal) com hipotensão arterial, favorecendo a chegada sanguínea ao cérebro, evitando a anóxia e descerebração consequente dentro de determinados limites, sendo mais um meio de defesa do organismo. Abstract in english The author considers of atmost importance the anatomical arterial-venous conjugate, represented by the internal carotid artery and the cavernous sinus, as well as the carotid venous plexus which covers the internal carotid artery within the petrous portion of the temporal bone. He believes that besi [...] des protecting the vascular arterial wall in acute episodes of hypertension, it can also contribute to the mechanism of the carotid blood flow. This is due to the fact that he considers the physiological conditions of the cavernous sinus in relation to the others dural venous sinuses and the endocranial venous system and its cavernous constitution, which differs from other venous blood canals with their own venous physiology and different functions. He attempts to compare it to the rest of the body areas where cavernous plexuses are localized and where venous pressure reachs high proportions, in comparison with the other regions without this morphologic constitution. He establishes a correlation resulting form the cerebro-vascular resistence mechanism, the participation of which he considers as differing from others dural sinuses and encephalic veins. He also emphasizes physiologically the carotid siphon and believes that it participates in the hemodynamics, when the patient is lying down (in a horizontal position) with hypotension, facilitating the blood access to the brain, thus avoiding consequent anoxia and decerebration, within certain limits, and constituting an additional mean of body defense.

Interventional therapy via jugular vein access for the treatment of portal thrombosis  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Objective: To assess the efficacy of the interventional therapy using transjugular pathway in the treatment of portal thrombosis. Methods: Twenty-one patients with portal thrombosis were treated with interventional management via jugular vein access. The procedures included pharmaceutical thrombolysis through portal indwelling catheter and/or mechanical thrombectomy (MT), while balloon angioplasty and stent placement were used to treat the residual strictures. For patients complicated with cirrhosis and hemorrhage of the upper digestive tract intrahepatic portosystemic shunt was established after MT. Results: Portal patency was obtained in 18 patients with disappearance of the symptoms of gastrointestinal bleeding, ascites, as well as abdominal pain and distention. In two patients receiving the procedure of intrahepatic portosystemic shunt hepatic encephalopathy developed, which was controlled by medication. Of three patients with therapeutic failure, one died of gastrointestinal bleeding and two received medication. Conclusion: Interventional therapy via jugular vein access is a safe, minimally-invasive and effective treatment for portal thrombosis. (authors)

Internal jugular vein thrombosis complicating cervicofacial infection of dental origin. Case report  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Septic thrombosis of the internal jugular vein or Lemierre’s syndrome is a rare form of metastatic septic thromboembolitis, typically involving superinfection with Fusobacterium Necrophorum, internal jugular vein thrombosis and remote septic emboli.CASE REPORT: A 49-year-old male was referred for a painful cervicofacial swelling on the left, obliteration of the buccal sulcus, as well as swelling of both the soft and hard palate and the floor of the mouth ipsilaterally, accompanied by severe trismus and difficulty in swallowing. The patient underwent intraoral and extraoral incisions and drainage of the affected anatomical spaces and tracheotomy. The patient’s clinical condition was steadily improving; following examination with CT scan,9 days post-op, internal jugular vein thrombosis was diagnosed. The patient was put on anticoagulants. The postoperative course continued uneventfully, and the patient was discharged. One month post-operatively the vessel was normal and anticoagulant treatment was discontinued.CONCLUSION: Since Lemierre’s syndrome is not only rare but also tends to be underdiagnosed when there is no obvious cause of sepsis, it should be included in the differential diagnosis if the patient’s general contition deteriorates in spite of the treatment.

Comparison between tail and jugular venipuncture techniques for blood sample collection in common chameleons (Chamaeleo chamaeleon).  

Science.gov (United States)

The most common technique used for collecting blood samples from chameleons, ventral tail caudal venipuncture (Reptile care. An Atlas of Diseases and Treatments, Vol. II, T.F.H. Publication, New Jersey, 1991) sometimes presents undesired effects. Here we compared tail versus jugular vein venipuncture techniques in the common chameleon. In the first experiment, we collected 0.25% of the chameleon's body mass in blood from either tail or jugular sites in size-matched pairs of animals to check for secondary effects. In a second experiment, we measured white blood cells (WBC), red blood cells (RBC), total plasma protein and uric acid in blood samples collected from both sites in the same individual. We found few secondary effects following the use of either venipuncture site although skin darkening was observed in few specimens when using the ventral tail vein. Blood profiles were similar between samples. The repeatability of measurements was similar in RBC and WBC counts and remarkably low (<0.90). Despite the few differences recorded, we recommend jugular venipunction in chameleons as skin darkening is unlikely, blood volumes are easily obtained and collection time is shorter. PMID:12788022

Dural sinus thrombosis - a rare manifestation of internal jugular venous occlusion.  

Science.gov (United States)

The dural sinus thrombosis is an uncommon complication of a commonly done procedure of central venous catheterisation. We present a case of massive hemorrhagic venous infarct with gross cerebral edema due to dural sinus thrombosis along with right internal jugular vein thrombus. A 21-year-old male patient presented to the emergency department with fever and swelling of the right neck four days following discharge after his prior hospitalization two weeks ago for acute renal failure due to severe gastroenteritis, when he underwent hemodialysis through right internal jugular access. On presentation, he was conscious, with swelling on right side of the neck, which was diagnosed as right internal jugular vein occlusion. However, he rapidly deteriorated and developed signs of raised intracranial pressure despite being on treatment with heparin. He was diagnosed as having massive hemorrhagic cerebral venous infarct with gross cerebral edema complicated with shift of the ventricles to the left due to dural sinus thrombosis. Despite emergency decompressive craniotomy, he succumbed in the next two days due to coning. Asymptomatic catheter-related thrombosis is frequent in the intensive care units, but major complications like retrograde extension into dural sinus causing thrombosis is rare. A high index of suspicion is required to diagnose this major catastrophe for an early and meaningful intervention. PMID:22805395

Formation of the external jugular vein in the brown brocket deer (Mazama gouazoubira  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The brown brocket deer (Mazama gouazoubira is a brown-greyish short-haired wild ruminant living in Central and South Americas. This paper aimed at describing the formation of the external jugular vein in a male specimen which died due to run-over. The facial and cervical regions were dissected so as to allow the visualization of the external jugular vein and its tributaries. This vein was formed by the union of the maxillary and linguofacial veins. The first originated from the superficial and transverse facial temporal veins, and it received along its length the angular vein of the eye, as well as the dorsal and lateral veins of the nose and upper lip. The second was formed after the anastomosis of the lingual and facial veins. The facial vein was originated by the union of the lower lip and deep facial veins, in the middle third of the face, rostral to the masseter muscle. This vascular arrangement differs from that usually observed in domestic ruminants, in which the transverse facial vein is underdeveloped and the facial vein receives the angular vein of the eye, the dorsal and lateral veins of the nose, besides the upper lip vein. The external jugular vein in the brown brocket deer presented the same tributaries than domestic ruminants, however, with a different vessel arrangement of the facial and facial transverse veins.

Endovascular Treatment of an Iatrogenic Right Internal Jugular Vein- Right Subclavian Artery Fistula and Pseudoaneurysm During the Attempt of a Hemodialysis Catheter Insertion: A Case Report  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Complications during the placement of a central venous catheter, via the right internal jugular vein puncture include local hematoma, hemothorax, pneumothorax, central vein thrombosis, and hemopericardium. Iatrogenic right internal jugular vein-right subclavian artery fistula with the formation of right subclavian artery pseudoaneurysms is an extremely rare complication in patients undergoing a central vein puncture. We report the case of a patient who developed a local hematoma at the vein puncture site and dyspnea due to a right internal jugular vein-subclavian artery fistula and a right subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm at the mediastinum after puncture of right internal jugular vein. The patient was successfully treated by embolization using microcoils.

The safety and efficacy of gamma knife surgery in management of glomus jugulare tumor  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Glomus jugulare is a slowly growing, locally destructive tumor located in the skull base with difficult surgical access. The operative approach is, complicated by the fact that lesions may be both intra and extradural with engulfment of critical neurovascular structures. The tumor is frequently highly vascular, thus tumor resection entails a great deal of morbidity and not infrequent mortality. At timeslarge residual tumors are left behind. To decrease the morbidity associated with surgical resection of glomus jugulare, gamma knife surgery (GKS was performed as an alternative in 13 patients to evaluate its safety and efficacy. Methods A retrospective review of 13 residual or unresectable glomus jagulare treated with GKS between 2004 and 2008.. Of these, 11 patients underwent GKS as the primary management and one case each was treated for postoperative residual disease and postembolization. The radiosurgical dose to the tumor margin ranged between 12-15 Gy. Results Post- gamma knife surgery and during the follow-up period twelve patients demonstrated neurological stability while clinical improvement was achieved in 5 patients. One case developed transient partial 7th nerve palsy that responded to medical treatment. In all patients radiographic MRI follow-up was obtained, the tumor size decreased in two cases and remained stable (local tumor control in eleven patients. Conclusions Gamma knife surgery provids tumor control with a lowering of risk of developing a new cranial nerve injury in early follow-up period. This procedure can be safely used as a primary management tool in patients with glomus jugulare tumors, or in patients with recurrent tumors in this location. If long-term results with GKS are equally effective it will emerge as a good alternative to surgical resection.

[Monitoring jugular venous oxygen saturation in severe cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage].  

Science.gov (United States)

Cerebral arterial vasospasm is a major complication of aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage. The conventional treatment of this complication includes haemodilution, hypervolaemia, arterial hypertension and nimodipine. Some patients do not respond to this therapy and require an intraarterial infusion of papaverine and/or a cerebral angioplasty. Transcranial Doppler detects cerebral vasospasm. However it does not provide an accurate metabolic information on the ischaemic status of the cerebral tissue. This article describes the monitoring of jugular venous bulb oxygen saturation to obtain a real time information on the metabolic effect of cerebral vasospasm and its variations after intra-arterial infusion of papaverine.

Comparison of subcutaneous central venous port via jugular and subclavian access in 347 patients at a single center  

Science.gov (United States)

The purpose of the present study was to examine whether patency times, including complications of subcutaneous venous chest port insertion using ultrasonography (US) guidance, differ between jugular and subclavian venous access. Between December 2008 and July 2010, subcutaneous venous chest ports were placed in 347 patients by an experienced team. All single-lumen port catheters were placed into jugular and subclavian veins under US and fluoroscopy guidance. Patency times and complication rates of ports via these routes were compared and the variables were age, gender, access, site of malignancy and coagulation parameters. The success of the jugular and subclavian groups was compared by univariate Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and the multivariable Cox regression test. A total of 15 patients underwent port removal due to complications. As a rate per 100 catheter days, ports were explanted in 7 (0.0092) due to thrombosis, 4 (0.0053) for catheter malposition, one each (0.0013) of port reservoir flip-over, bleeding, port pocket infection, skin necrosis and incision dehiscence, for a total of 15 patients (0.0197). Patency times were not different in the jugular and subclavian veins. Factors were not significant, with the exception of platelet count. There was no significant difference in patency times, including complications, between jugular vein access and subclavian vein access using US. This should be considered when selecting the access method.

Non-cuffed dual lumen catheters in the external jugular veins versus other central veins for hemodialysis patients  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available To compare prospective between insertion of non-cuffed dual lumen catheter in the external jugular vein and other central veins for hemodialysis (HD, we studied 68 chronic dialysis patients randomly allocated into two groups: one with external jugular vein catheterization as access for HD and another with other central venous catheterization, internal jugular or subclavian vein. Our results showed there were no significant differences regarding successful cannulation, com-plications, total numbers of dialysis, development of pain and infection at the site of cannulation, patency rate of the catheters, and efficacy of hemodialysis between both groups. In addition, the patency of the catheter in the external jugular vein was not affected by previous cannulation of other central veins. In contrast, there was a significant correlation between numbers of attempts for cannulation in both groups and development of hematoma and infection, (p< 0.05. In conclusion, our results showed that the external jugular vein may be an alternative for other central veins for insertion of temporary non-cuffed hemodialysis catheter.

Is catheter rupture rare after totally implantable access port implantation via the right internal jugular vein? Report of a case.  

Science.gov (United States)

Catheter rupture after totally implantable access port (TIAP) implantation via the right internal jugular vein is thought to be very rare. We report a case of catheter rupture found 682 days after TIAP surgery in a 52-year-old woman with recurrent right breast cancer. It is possible that chronic stress at the flexure of the catheter induced by neck movements caused the catheter to rupture. Therefore, when inserting a TIAP via the right internal jugular vein, the site of venous puncture should be decided on carefully. Although a fracture of this type is rarely reported in the literature, the incidence of catheter injury of a TIAP inserted via the internal jugular vein at our institute is 1.8 %. This highlights the need to educate and caution medical staff and patients about preventing catheter fracture being caused by external factors. PMID:23732842

Thrombosis as a complication of pulmonary-artery catheterization via the internal jugular vein: prospective evaluation by phlebography  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

A prospective study was made to determine, by angiography, the incidence of internal jugular-vein thrombosis in 33 consecutive critically ill patients who required temporary monitoring with Swan-Ganz catheters via the internal jugular vein. Twenty-two patients (66 per cent) had venographic or autopsy evidence of internal jugular-vein thrombosis. There was a statistically significant difference between the group of patients without thrombosis (Group 1) and the group with thrombosis (Group 2) with regard to the duration of hemodynamic compromise. Fifteen patients in Group 2 (as compared with eight in Group 1) were treated with heparin infusion, but nevertheless evidence of deep-vein thrombosis developd. Thus, it is concluded that venous thrombosis is a frequent complication of temporary monitoring with the Swan-Ganz catheter, especially in patients whose circulatory function has been impaired for a prolonged period

A Case Report of Right Internal Jugular Vein Thrombosis with Acute Brucellosis  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Introduction: Brucellosis is a common zoonotic disease which has a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations and complications in humans. Brucellosis is an endemic disease in Iran, and vein thrombosis is a rare complication of acute brucellosis. Case Report: A 58-year old woman admitted to the infectious diseases ward in Farshchian hospital had fever and severe headache beginning 15 days before admission. Moreover, she complained from fatigue, malaise, anorexia, skin lesions around the nose and cervical lym-phadenopathy. Sonogarphy of cervical soft tissues of the patient showed right internal jugu-lar vein thrombosis and numerous cervical lymphadenopathy in the right posteriocervical tri-angle. Doppler sonography of the cervical vessels of the patient showed thrombosis of the middle right internal jugular vein. The blood culture isolates were small gram-negative aero-bic coccobacilli in two separate cultures. Serologic tests of Wright, 2ME and IgG ELISA were positive in the patient. The patient was treated with doxycycline, rifampin and warfarin, and she improved completely after a 5 month follow-up. Conclusion: We should consider brucellosis in the patients with rare manifestations of brucel-losis such as vascular thrombosis in endemic areas because early diagnosis and treatment of the patients can decrease its complications and mortality rate.

Paraneoplastic Internal Jugular Vein Thrombosis Leading to Diagnosis of Bilateral Ovarian Ependymoma  

Science.gov (United States)

Ovarian ependymomas are extremely rare tumors of the ovary. We present a case of a 67-year-old lady presented to us with swelling in the right side of neck for 2 months followed by pelvic pain, lower abdominal distention, and weight loss for 1 month. Her coagulation profile, blood chemistry, lipid profile, and tumor markers were within normal limits. Neck Doppler ultrasonography revealed thrombus in the right internal jugular vein and CT scan of the abdomen showed bilateral ovarian masses. Patient was subjected to debulking surgery for suspected ovarian cancer and microscopy revealed a highly cellular tumor composed of small cells with hyperchromatic, round-to-oval nuclei with scanty cytoplasm, and perivascular pseudorosettes. Diagnosis was confirmed by immunophenotype showing strong positivity to glial fibrillary acidic protein, estrogen receptors, and progesterone receptors. Patient was successfully managed with anticoagulants, adjuvant chemotherapy with BEP regimen, and letrozole. After ruling out other common conditions for thrombosis in this age group, this seems to be a paraneoplastic presentation of ovarian malignancy that preceded the diagnosis of ependymoma by 2 months. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case report in the world literature as “paraneoplastic internal jugular vein thrombosis leading to diagnosis of bilateral ovarian ependymoma.”

A new biplane ultrasound probe for real-time visualization and cannulation of the internal jugular vein.  

Science.gov (United States)

Ultrasound guidance is recommended for cannulation of the internal jugular vein. Use of ultrasound allows you to identify relevant anatomy and possible anatomical anomalies. The most common approach is performed while visualizing the vein transversely and inserting the needle out of plane to the probe. With this approach needle tip visualization may be difficult. We report the use of a new biplane ultrasound probe which allows the user to simultaneously view the internal jugular vein in transverse and longitudinal views in real time. Use of this probe enhances needle visualization during venous cannulation. PMID:24715987

Internal jugular and common femoral venous access for the removal of a long-term embedded vena cava filter.  

Science.gov (United States)

We describe an inferior vena cava filter retrieval technique requiring triple venous access performed in a 35-year-old male who was referred for filter removal 16 months after its insertion. The filter showed a right-sided tilt with endothelialization of the distal filter struts into the caval wall. Access was required via both internal jugular veins to straighten the filter using a snared-loop technique. Further 18 F right common femoral vein access was required to snare and remove the filter, which could not be completely collapsed distally due to endothelialized tissue, precluding normal removal via the jugular venous route.

Transcriptome profiling of the theca interna in transition from small to large antral ovarian follicles.  

Science.gov (United States)

The theca interna layer of the ovarian follicle forms during the antral stage of follicle development and lies adjacent to and directly outside the follicular basal lamina. It supplies androgens and communicates with the granulosa cells and the oocyte by extracellular signaling. To better understand developmental changes in the theca interna, we undertook transcriptome profiling of the theca interna from small (3-5 mm, n?=?10) and large (9-12 mm, n?=?5) healthy antral bovine follicles, representing a calculated >7-fold increase in the amount of thecal tissue. Principal Component Analysis and hierarchical classification of the signal intensity plots for the arrays showed no clustering of the theca interna samples into groups depending on follicle size or subcategories of small follicles. From the over 23,000 probe sets analysed, only 76 were differentially expressed between large and small healthy follicles. Some of the differentially expressed genes were associated with processes such as myoblast differentiation, protein ubiquitination, nitric oxide and transforming growth factor ? signaling. The most significant pathway affected from our analyses was found to be Wnt signaling, which was suppressed in large follicles via down-regulation of WNT2B and up-regulation of the inhibitor FRZB. These changes in the transcriptional profile could have been due to changes in cellular function or alternatively since the theca interna is composed of a number of different cell types it could have been due to any systematic change in the volume density of any particular cell type. However, our study suggests that the transcriptional profile of the theca interna is relatively stable during antral follicle development unlike that of granulosa cells observed previously. Thus both the cellular composition and cellular behavior of the theca interna and its contribution to follicular development appear to be relatively constant throughout the follicle growth phase examined.

The search for valved conduit tissue grafts for adults (>22 mm: an ultrasonographic study of jugular vein diameters of horses and cattle  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Natural heterologous valved conduits with a diameter greater than 22 mm that can be used for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in adults are not commercially available. The purpose of this study was to measure by ultrasonography the maximum diameter of the distended jugular veins of horses and cattle, respectively, to identify a population of animals that would be suitable for post-mortem collection of jugular veins at sizes greater than 22 mm. Methods The study population included 60 Warmblood horses, 25 Freiberger horses, 20 Brown Swiss cows, and 20 Holstein cows (including 10 Holstein and 10 Red Holstein. The maximum cross-sectional diameter of the distended jugular veins was measured at a location half-way between the mandibular angle and the thoracic inlet. The thoracic circumference (heart girth length was used as a surrogate of body size. The jugular vein diameters of the different populations were compared by analysis of variance and the association between heart girth length and jugular vein diameter was determined in each of the four study populations by linear regression analysis. Results There was considerable individual variation of jugular vein diameters within each of the four study populations. There was no statistically significant relationship between thoracic circumference and jugular vein diameter in any of the populations. The jugular vein diameters of Brown Swiss cows were significantly larger than those of any of the other populations. Warmblood horses had significantly larger jugular vein diameters compared to Freiberger horses. Conclusion The results of this study suggest that the production of bovine or equine xenografts with diameters of greater than 22 mm would be feasible. Differences between species and breeds need to be considered. However, prediction of the jugular vein diameter based on breed and heart girth length in an individual animal is inaccurate.

Collet-Sicard Syndrome from Thrombosis of the Sigmoid-Jugular Complex: A Case Report and Review of the Literature  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Purpose. Collet-Sicard syndrome is a very rare condition characterised by unilateral palsy of the IX–XII cranial nerves. It is distinguished from Villaret syndrome by lack of presence of sympathetic involvement. Current literature contains only two cases of Collet-Sicard syndrome due to idiopathic internal jugular vein thrombosis. Method and Results. We report the case of Collet-Sicard syndrome in a 30-year-old man who presented with delayed development of XIth nerve dysfunction, due to internal jugular vein-sigmoid sinus thrombosis. A multidisciplinary team approach was employed in the management of this patient. At three-month followup, he had significantly improved swallowing, and repeat computed tomography neck scan showed partial recanalisation of the right internal jugular vein. Conclusion. In suspected Collet-Sicard syndrome, a focal primary lesion or metastasis to the temporal bone must be excluded, and sigmoid-jugular complex thrombosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis. Early recognition and treatment may result in significant functional recovery.

External Carotid-Internal Jugular Fistula as a Late Complication After Carotid Endarterectomy: A Rare Case  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

A 66-year-old man presented with mild amnesia, progressive fatigue, ataxia, visual hallucinations, and debility. His past medical history included right-sided carotid endarterectomy performed elsewhere 6 years previously. Cranial magnetic resonance imaging showed left parieto-occipital arteriovenous malformation-like tortous vessels, venous congestion, and ischemic areas. Cerebral angiography showed right-sided compound external carotid artery-internal jugular vein (IJV) fistula, and distal occlusion of the right IJV. Transvenous embolization via contralateral IJV was performed, and the fistula, together with fistulous portion of the distal IJV, was sealed using coils. Two years later, patient is well with normal neurologic examination findings. The presence of an arteriovenous communication after vascular surgery is a serious complication with potential long-term effects and therefore should be diagnosed and treated as promptly as possible.

Perinatal autopsy findings in three cases of jugular lymphatic obstruction sequence and cardiac polyvalvular dysplasia.  

Science.gov (United States)

Three infants with a prenatal diagnosis of Noonan's syndrome suffered fetal hydrops and immediate neonatal death. The infants all had the external appearance of jugular lymphatic obstruction sequence with wide-spaced nipples, redundant posterior nuchal skin, and edema of the dorsa of the feet and hands. All 3 demonstrated thick, redundant leaflets of all 4 cardiac valves, and 2 had a membranous ventricular septal defect. One female infant had a mutation of the PTPN11 gene. Two males had no common mutation of PTPN11. The males demonstrated other abnormalities in common, including small penis, testicular malformation, rosette-like appearance of the pituicytes, and an eosinophil infiltration of the pancreatic islets with islet cell hypertrophy. Detailed anatomy of cases of lymphatic obstruction sequence fetuses can be correlated with an increasing number of genetic mutations associated with Noonan's syndrome and related syndromes in mice and humans.

Transcriptome Profiling of the Theca Interna from Bovine Ovarian Follicles during Atresia.  

Science.gov (United States)

The theca interna is a specialized stromal layer that envelops each growing ovarian follicle. It contains capillaries, fibroblasts, immune cells and the steroidogenic cells that synthesize androgens for conversion to estradiol by the neighboring granulosa cells. During reproductive life only a small number of follicles will grow to a sufficient size to ovulate, whereas the majority of follicles will undergo regression/atresia and phagocytosis by macrophages. To identify genes which are differentially regulated in the theca interna during follicular atresia, we undertook transcriptome profiling of the theca interna from healthy (n?=?10) and antral atretic (n?=?5) bovine follicles at early antral stages (cell cycle and DNA replication. Cell cycle genes which encode components of the replicating chromosome complex and mitotic spindle were down-regulated in atretic theca interna, whereas stress response and inflammation-related genes such as TP53, IKBKB and TGFB1 were up-regulated. In addition to cell cycle regulators, upstream regulators that were predicted to be inhibited included Retinoblastoma 1, E2 transcription factor 1, and hepatocyte growth factor. Our study suggests that during antral atresia of small follicles in the theca interna, arrest of cell cycle and DNA replication occurs rather than up- regulation of apoptosis-associated genes as occurs in granulosa cells.

Implante de filtro em veia cava inferior dupla: relato de caso e revisão da literatura Filter placement in duplicated inferior vena cava: case report and review of the literature  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Veia cava inferior dupla é uma variação anatômica rara cuja prevalência é de 0,2-3%. O implante de filtro de veia cava, quando indicado em casos com duplicidade da veia cava inferior, pode ser realizado de diferentes formas: em ambas as veias cavas; em uma delas, embolizando a anastomose entre ambas; em somente uma delas; ou por implante supra-renal. Relatamos um caso de trombose venosa profunda no pós-operatório de implante de prótese de quadril com contra-indicação para tratamento anticoagulante e cuja cavografia evidenciou duplicidade de veia cava inferior. O implante de filtro de veia cava inferior realizado em posição supra-renal mostrou-se opção adequada e segura.Double inferior vena cava is a rare anatomic variation with prevalence ranging between 0.2-3.0%. In cases of duplication, inferior vena cava filter placement options include placing it in both vena cava, coil-embolization of the intervenous segment plus placing a filter in the right inferior vena cava, or suprarenal filter placement. We report a case of deep venous thrombosis after unilateral primary total hip replacement, presenting with contraindications for anticoagulant therapy, in which cavography showed inferior vena cava duplication. Inferior vena cava filter placement was performed in the supra-renal portion and was proved to be an adequate and safe procedure.

Estudo da anatomia interna dos pré-molares – Revisão de literatura  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Introdução: com a intenção de reforçar a estreita relação existente entre o conhecimento da anatomia interna e a obtenção do sucesso no tratamento endodôntico, são relatadas aqui características da anatomia interna presentes no grupo dental dos pré-molares. Revisão de literatura: as alterações morfológicas quando desconsideradas podem dificultar a terapia endodôntica. A resolução de casos com anatomia incomum exige consequentemente, mudanças no método de diagnóstico, assim como no tratamento. Conclusão: a identificação, e, portanto, o tratamento satisfatório de raízes e canais diferenciados, diminui a persistência dos sinais e sintomas, reduzindo, assim as possíveis causas de um retratamento.

Congenital inferior vena cava anomalies: a review of findings at multidetector computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging / Anomalias congênitas da veia cava inferior: revisão dos achados na tomografia computadorizada multidetectores e ressonância magnética  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese Anomalias da veia cava inferior são incomuns, ocorrendo em até 8,7% da população, quando consideradas as anomalias da veia renal esquerda. A veia cava inferior se desenvolve da sexta à oitava semanas de gestação, originada de três veias embrionárias parea [...] das: veias subcardinais, supracardinais e pós-cardinais. A complexidade da ontogenia da veia cava inferior, com numerosas anastomoses entre essas três veias embrionárias, pode levar a uma grande variedade do retorno venoso do abdome e membros inferiores. Algumas dessas anomalias têm implicações clínicas e cirúrgicas significativas, associadas a outras anomalias congênitas, e em alguns casos, associadas a trombose venosa de membros inferiores, principalmente em pacientes adultos jovens. Foram revistos os exames de dez pacientes com anomalias da veia cava inferior, três deles com trombose venosa profunda de membros inferiores. Foram salientados os principais aspectos das anomalias da veia cava inferior, nos exames de tomografia computadorizada multidetectores e ressonância magnética, correlacionados com a embriologia e demonstrando as principais vias alternativas de drenagem venosa. O conhecimento das anomalias da veia cava inferior é fundamental na avaliação dos exames de imagem do abdome, evitando erros de interpretação e indicando a possibilidade de anomalias associadas, implicações clínicas e cirúrgicas. Abstract in english Inferior vena cava anomalies are rare, occurring in up to 8.7% of the population, as left renal vein anomalies are considered. The inferior vena cava develops from the sixth to the eighth gestational weeks, originating from three paired embryonic veins, namely the subcardinal, supracardinal and post [...] cardinal veins. This complex ontogenesis of the inferior vena cava, with multiple anastomoses between the pairs of embryonic veins, leads to a number of anatomic variations in the venous return from the abdomen and lower limbs. Some of such variations have significant clinical and surgical implications related to other cardiovascular anomalies and in some cases associated with venous thrombosis of lower limbs, particularly in young adults. The authors reviewed images of ten patients with inferior vena cava anomalies, three of them with deep venous thrombosis. The authors highlight the major findings of inferior vena cava anomalies at multidetector computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, correlating them the embryonic development and demonstrating the main alternative pathways for venous drainage. The knowledge on the inferior vena cava anomalies is critical in the assessment of abdominal images to avoid misdiagnosis and to indicate the possibility of associated anomalies, besides clinical and surgical implications.

A veia gástrica esquerda como alternativa de revascularização portal no transplante hepático Left gastric vein as an alternative of portal revascularization in liver transplant  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Trombose ou hipoplasia da veia porta não tem sido, ainda, considerados contra-indicações para o transplante ortotópico de fígado. Contudo, permanecem com obstáculos associados com aumento da freqüência de falha primária e a longo prazo do transplante de fígado. Existem alguns fatores de risco tais como: sexo masculino, cirrose avançada, doença hepática alcoólica e cirurgia prévia para hipertensão portal. Os autores relatam o caso de uma criança de 4 anos, do sexo feminino, que sofria de doença terminal do fígado resultante de atresia de vias biliares e que tinha submetido, sem sucesso, a uma operação de Kasai. Ela se submeteu a um transplante ortotópico de fígado por cirrose biliar secundária. Durante a cirurgia uma hipoplasia portal severa do receptor foi encontrada. Uma anastomose entre a veia gástrica esquerda do receptor e a veia porta do doador foi feita. Reperfusão hepática e subseqüente função do fígado foram excelentes. A paciente recebeu alta hospitalar no trigésimo dia. A veia gástrica esquerda pode ser uma alternativa para revascularização portal no transplante hepático.Portal vein thrombosis or hipoplasia have not been, anymore, a contraindication for orthotopic liver transplantation. Nevertheless, it remains an obstacle associated with increased incidence of primary and long-term liver failure. There are some risk factors like being male, advanced cirrhosis, alcoholic liver disease and previos surgery for portal hypertension. The authors report a case of a 4-yr-old female patient who suffered from end-stage liver disease resulting from biliary atresia with failed Kasai´s operation. She underwent orthotopic liver transplantation for secondary biliary cirrhosis. During surgery a severe recipient portal vein hipoplasia was found. An anastomosis between the recipient left gastric vein and the graft portal vein was performed. Hepatic reperfusion and subsequent liver function were excellent. The patient left hospital on the 30th postoperative day. The left gastric vein can be an alternative of portal revascularization in liver transplant.

Both groups were compared with a health volunteer control group, living in the same social-economic-environmental conditions. MEHTODS: An ultrasound Doppler with a 7.5 MHz probe was used. The IMT was measured in the three groups with 20 individuals each, of both gender, with ages ranging from 20 to 60 years. The mean and standard deviations of common and internal carotid arteries maxIMT, medIMT, minIMT were assessed. Risk factors: age, systemic arterial hypertension and cigarette smoking were investigated as regard to IMT measurements. RESULTS: There were no statistical differences in IMT between right and left side, and among surgical, non-surgical and control groups. The surgical treated patients and controls showed correlation to known atherosclerotic risk factors: age, hypertension and cigarette smoking. However, non-surgically treated patients did not present the same correlation. CONLCUSION: It is tempting to believe that non-operated schistosomotic patients may have "some protection" against atherogenesis in human beings; however, the data do not lend full support to this hypothesis.

Alterações angiográficas e pressóricas determinadas pela esplenectomia e ligadura da veia gástrica esquerda em portadores de esquistossomose mansônica / Angiografic and pressoric changes determined by splenectomy with left gastric vein ligature in mansoni schistosomiasis  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese RACIONAL: Na esquistossomose mansônica na forma hepatoesplênica ocorre fibrose hepática difusa que associada à congestão venosa do sistema porta resulta em hepatoesplenomegalia. Pode produzir hemorragia digestiva alta por rotura das varizes de esôfago e do estômago ou lesões pépticas da mucosa gastr [...] oduodenal. OBJETIVO: Estudar os efeitos da esplenectomia e ligadura da veia gástrica esquerda sobre a hemodinâmica portohepática. MÉTODO: Vinte e três portadores de esquistossomose mansônica na forma hepatoesplênica foram estudados prospectivamente, antes e cerca de duas semanas após a operação, através de estudos angiográficos dos diâmetros da artéria hepática comum e própria, artéria esplênica, artéria mesentérica superior, veia porta, veia mesentérica superior e veia gástrica esquerda. Foram aferidas as pressões da veia cava inferior, venosa central, da veia hepática livre, da veia hepática ocluída e sinusoidal. RESULTADOS: A ligadura da veia gástrica esquerda determinou acréscimo significante nas seguintes variáveis: diâmetros da artéria hepática comum e própria; diâmetro da veia mesentérica superior; o acréscimo não foi significante nas seguintes medidas: pressão venosa central e diâmetro da artéria mesentérica superior. Ela promoveu decréscimo não significante nas variáveis: pressão da veia cava inferior; pressão da veia hepática livre; pressão da veia hepática ocluída; pressão sinusoidal; diâmetro da veia porta. CONCLUSÃO: A ligadura da veia gástrica esquerda, na maioria dos casos, não determina alterações hemodinâmicas significantes do sistema porta capazes de quebrar o equilíbrio hemodinâmico funcional, que caracteriza a esquistossomose mansônica na forma hepatoesplênica. Abstract in english BACKGROUND: In hepatosplenic schistosomiasis occurs diffuse hepatic fibrosis associated with venous congestion of the portal system resulting in hepatosplenomegaly. It can produce digestive hemorrhage caused by rupture of esophageal and stomach varices or peptic gastroduodenal mucosal lesions. AIM: [...] To study the effects of splenectomy and ligature of the left gastric vein on portohepatic hemodynamics. METHOD: Twenty-three patients with hepatosplenic schistosomiasis mansoni were studied before and about two weeks after operation through angiographic diameter of the common and proper hepatic artery, splenic artery, superior mesenteric artery, portal vein, superior mesenteric vein and left gastric vein. The pressures of the inferior vena cava and central venous pressure, free hepatic vein, the hepatic sinusoidal and occluded vein were measured. RESULTS: The splenectomy and ligature of the left gastric vein determined low morbidity and null mortality. It determined significant addition to the following variables: diameters of the common and proper hepatic artery; diameter of the superior mesenteric vein. It determined non significant increase on the following measurements: right atrial pressure and diameter of the superior mesenteric artery. It determined non significant decrease to the following variables: inferior vena cava pressure; free hepatic vein pressure; occluded hepatic vein pressure; sinusoidal pressure, diameter of the portal vein. CONCLUSION: Splenectomy and ligature of the left gastric vein do not determine portal hemodynamic changes capable of breaking the functional hemodinamic balance that characterizes the hepatosplenic mansoni schistosomiasis.

Expression of apoptosis in human saphenous vein grafts in restoration of blood flow through coronary bypass surgery Expressão da apoptose em enxertos de veias safenas humana para restauração do fluxo sanguíneo coronariano por derivação  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible role of apoptosis on brief distensions of human saphenous veins at different pressures. METHODS: Fresh isolated grafts of human saphenous vein were assigned as control or distended (D for fifteen seconds at 100, 200 and 300 mmHg. The degree of apoptotic caspases 3, 8, 9 and anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2 expression were assessed by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Fresh isolated segments of distended human saphenous veins presented similar apoptotic protein expression when compared with control veins. However, the Bcl-2 expression was significantly higher in the 300 mmHg distended segments compared with the control vein. CONCLUSION: These findings show that intact segments of human saphenous veins submitted to distensions at different pressures have similar apoptotic proteins expression when compared with non-distended control veins. Therefore, brief distensions commonly performed during surgical harvesting do not trigger apoptosis, and probably are not involved on the physiopathological mechanisms that lead to graft failureOBJETIVO: Investigar o possível papel da apoptose em distensões breves de veias safenas humanas em diferentes pressões. MÉTODOS: Segmentos frescos isolados de veia safena humana foram distribuídos em 4 grupos: controle ou distendidos (D por quinze segundos a 100, 200 e 300 mmHg. O grau de apoptose das caspases 3, 8, 9 e expressão da proteína anti-apoptótica Bcl-2 foram avaliados por imuno-histoquímica. RESULTADOS: Segmentos frescos distendidos isolados de veias safenas humanas apresentaram expressão protéica para apoptose similar às veias controle. No entanto, a expressão de Bcl-2 foi significativamente maior nos segmentos distendidos a 300 mmHg, quando comparados à veia controle. CONCLUSÃO: Estes achados demonstram que segmentos intactos de veias safenas humanas submetidos a distensões em diferentes pressões têm expressão de proteínas apoptóticas similares quando comparados com veias controle nãodistendidas. Por conseguinte, breves distensões comumente realizadas durante a coleta cirúrgica não ativam o processo de apoptose e, provavelmente, não estão envolvidas em mecanismos fisiopatológicos que levam à falência do enxerto

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Doppler ultrasonography was performed in 80 patients divided into two groups as follows: 40 patients diagnosed with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and also submitted to biopsy, and a control group including 40 healthy adults with no risk factor for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. The Doppler waveform patterns of right hepatic vein were classified into triphasic, biphasic and monophasic. Biopsy specimens were classified according to the degree of steatosis, inflammation and fibrosis. RESULTS: Triphasic flow was observed in 38 (95% patients of the control group and in nine (56% patients with mild steatosis, whereas in patients with severe steatosis, the pattern was monophasic in 60%. A statistically significant difference was observed in the distribution of Doppler patterns (p < 0.01. A significant negative correlation between the Doppler waveform pattern of right hepatic vein and steatosis degree was observed (r = 0.57; p < 0.01. CONCLUSION: An abnormal Doppler waveform pattern of right hepatic vein in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease may suggest the presence of decreased vascular compliance caused by fatty infiltration.

Vena cava filters in cancer patients: experience with 50 patients Filtros de veia cava inferior em pacientes com câncer: experiência em 50 casos  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To study the immediate and late results obtained from the implantation of vena cava filters in cancer patients with deep vein thrombosis concomitant with neoplasia. METHODS: This was a retrospective evaluation of 50 patients with an association of cancer and deep venous thrombosis who underwent interruption of the inferior vena cava and the insertion of permanent vena cava filters. The indications for the procedure, filter implantation technique, early and late complications related to the operation, and the clinical evolution were evaluated. RESULTS: The most frequent indication for filter implantation was the contraindication for full anticoagulant treatment (80%. The femoral vein was the preferred access route (86% of the patients. There were no complications related to the surgical procedure. During the follow-up, the following complications were observed: 1 episode of nonfatal pulmonary thromboembolism, 2 cases of occlusion of the inferior vena cava, and 1 case of thrombus retained in the device. Twenty patients (40% died due to progression of the neoplasm. CONCLUSIONS: Interruption of the inferior cava vein using an endoluminal filter is a procedure with a low rate of complications. It is a safe and efficient measure for preventing pulmonary embolism in cancer patients who have deep vein thrombosis of the lower limbs.OBJETIVO: Estudar os resultados imediatos e tardios obtidos com a implantação de filtros de veia cava inferior em pacientes com trombose venosa profunda concomitante a neoplasia.

RESULTADOS: A indicação mais freqüente para o procedimento foi a impossibilidade de anticoagulação plena (80% e a via de acesso preferencial foi a punção da veia femoral, realizada em 86% dos pacientes. Não houve complicações relativas ao implante dos filtros. Durante a evolução ocorreram: um episódio de tromboembolia pulmonar não fatal e dois casos de oclusão da veia cava inferior; em um paciente foi demonstrada a presença de coágulo retido no dispositivo. Vinte pacientes (40% faleceram devido à neoplasia. CONCLUSÃO: A interrupção da veia cava inferior com filtro endoluminal é um procedimento com baixo índice de complicações e eficaz na prevenção da embolia pulmonar nos pacientes com tromobose venosa profunda de membros inferiores portadores de câncer.

A Case of Unilateral Fenestration and Duplication of the External Jugular Vein Un Caso de Fenestración Unilateral y Duplicación de la Vena Yugular Externa  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

The external jugular vein is increasingly being utilized as the recipient vein in head and neck free tissue transfers, and for cannulation in order to conduct diagnostic procedures or intravenous therapies. The variations in the patterns of its course, and knowledge of them, are therefore important. We report on a unique and previously non-described unilateral fenestration and duplication of the external jugular vein found during the neck dissection of a 77-year-old female cadaver.

Fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy of glomus jugulare tumors. Local control, toxicity, symptomatology, and quality of life  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Background and Purpose: For glomus jugulare tumors, the goal of treatment is microsurgical excision. To minimize postoperative neurologic deficits, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) was performed as an alternative treatment option. Stereotactic fractionated radiotherapy (SRT) could be a further alternative. This study aims at the assessment of local control, side effects, and quality of life (QoL). Patients and Methods: Between 1999-2005, 17 patients were treated with SRT. 11/17 underwent previous operations. 6/17 received primary SRT. Treatment was delivered by a linear accelerator with 6-MV photons. Median cumulative dose was 57.0 Gy. Local control, radiologic regression, toxicity, and symptomatology were evaluated half-yearly by clinical examination and MRI scans. QoL was assessed by Short Form-36 (SF-36). Results: Median follow-up was 40 months. Freedom from progression and overall survival for 5 years were 100% and 93.8%. Radiologic regression was seen in 5/16 cases, 11/16 patients were stable. Median tumor shrinkage was 17.9% (p = 0.14). Severe acute toxicity (grade 3-4) or any late toxicity was never seen. Main symptoms improved in 9/16 patients, 7/16 were stable. QoL was not affected in patients receiving primary SRT. Conclusion: SRT offers an additional treatment option of high efficacy with less side effects, especially in cases of large tumors, morbidity, or recurrences after incomplete resections. (orig.)

Internal jugular versus subclavian vein catheterization for central venous catheterization in orthotopic liver transplantation.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of this study was to compare incidence rates of mechanical and infectious complications associated with central venous catheterization via the internal jugular vein (IJV) versus the subclavian vein (SV) among 45 consecutive patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) between January 2000 and June 2004. The subjects were divided into two groups according to the site of central venous catheterization (IJV or SV). We recorded each patient's physical characteristics, international normalized ratio (INR), partial thromboplastin time, platelet levels, number of puncture attempts, success/failure of central venous catheterization, duration of catheter placement, occurrence of catheter tip misplacement, arterial puncture, incidence of hematoma or pneumothorax, catheter-related infection, or bacterial colonization of the catheter. Senior staff anesthesiologists performed 22 SV and 23 IJV catheterizations for the 45 OLT procedures. The SV and IVJ groups both had minor coagulation abnormalities with slightly increased INR values at the time of catheterization. There were no significant differences between the groups with respect to success of central venous catheterization (100% for both), numbers of attempted punctures, duration of catheter placement, and incidence rates of mechanical and infectious complications. Both groups showed high frequencies of catheter tip misplacement, with right atrium as the site of misplacement in all cases. Two patients in the IJV group (8.7%) developed hematomas after accidental carotid artery puncture. The results suggest that, when performed by experienced anesthesiologists, central venous catheterization via the SV is an acceptable alternative to IJV catheterization for patients undergoing OLT.

Plasma concentrations of corticosterone and buprenorphine in rats subjected to jugular vein catheterization  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

The present study investigated the postoperative plasma concentrations of corticosterone and buprenorphine in male Wistar and Sprague-Dawley rats, treated with buprenorphine administered either through subcutaneous (SC) injection or through voluntary ingestion (VI). The animals were treated with buprenorphine for pre-emptive analgesia prior to surgical placement of a jugular catheter, followed by automated blood sampling during 96 h. Buprenorphine was administered on a regular basis throughout the experiment, and blood was collected on selected time points. Body weight was measured before and 96 h after surgery. It was found that the two rat stocks responded in a similar manner to both buprenorphine treatments, with the exception of body weight change in Wistar rats, in which body weight was reduced after SC treatment. The plasma concentration of corticosterone was significantly higher in the SC-treated animals than in the VI-treated animals during the first 18 h of the study, while plasma buprenorphine concentration was at least as high and more even over time after VI treatment. The present study shows that buprenorphine administration through VI is suitable for both Wistar and Sprague-Dawley rats, with lower stress response and higher plasma concentrations of buprenorphine than after the traditional SC route of administration.

Residual tumor diagnosis for glomus jugulare tumors by dynamic contrast medium MRI  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Purpose: To evaluate the ability of dynamic MRI to differentiate residual tumor from scar after glomus jugulare (GJ) surgery. Methods: 26 patients after GJ surgery were examined with dynamic contrast medium MRI on a 1.5 T Philips-Gyro-Scan NT. A T1-weighted TFE sequence was performed to localise the 5 slices for the dynamic study. Subsequently, a T1-weighted TFE sequence was used for the dynamic contrast medium study. We started contrast medium administration and TFE sequence at the same time. The time until acquisition of the first image was 7.4 s, and the interval between two images 7 s (total time 2.24 min). Intensity versus time studies were performed in the region of interest. Results: 2 typical intensity versus time graphs were observed: residual tumors showed a rapid increase in signal intensity, followed by a 'wash-out' phase, and a plateau phase in the later course. Scar showed a moderate increase in signal intensity, followed by a plateau phase on a low intensity level. In 9 patients, in whom tumor removal was subtotal, we saw the typical graph of a GJ tumor. 4 of 17 patients with complete tumor removal showed a typical graph like that of residual tumor, 13 of 17 patients showed the typical graph of a scar. Conclusions: With dynamic contrast medium MRI studies, differentiation between residual tumor and scar is possible in patients with prior GJ surgery. (orig.)

Thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (Lemierre syndrome) - Clinical and CT findings  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Background: Thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein (IJV) secondary to neck infection (so-called Lemierre syndrome) is a rare disease. Purpose: To evaluate the clinical and CT findings in patients with thrombophlebitis of the IJV. Material and Methods: The clinical and contrast-enhanced neck CT findings were retrospective analyzed in 10 patients (eight men, two women; mean age, 62.9{+-}8.3 years) with thrombophlebitis of the IJV. Results: Five patients (50%) had complications, including pneumonia (n = 3), neck abscess (n = 1), and thrombophlebitis of cerebral venous sinus (n = 1). All patients, except two who were lost to follow-up, had improved after antibiotics and anticoagulation therapy. Nine (90%) patients had underlying infectious processes in the neck. Contrast-enhanced neck CT of 12 IJVs (five right, three left, and two bilateral) affected by thrombophlebitis demonstrated > 5 cm in length (n = 8, 67%), ovoid shape (n = 7, 58%), complete occlusion of the lumen (n = 10, 83%), circumferential (n = 11, 92%), smooth (n = 8, 67%), and thick (=4 mm) (n = 8, 67%) rim enhancement, and adjacent soft tissue swelling (n = 11, 92%). Conclusion: Contrast-enhanced CT is useful in the diagnosis of thrombophlebitis of the IJV; characteristic CT findings of this unusual entity may be the main clue to the correct diagnosis.

Anatomical variations of the internal jugular vein in non-uremic outpatients.  

Science.gov (United States)

The internal jugular vein (IJV) should be the preferred form of venous vascular access for the placement of dialysis catheters. 'Blind' puncture or 'skin mark' ultrasound technique puncture present multiple complications due to the significant variations in IJV location in normal subjects and even more so in uremic pa-tients. The aim of this study is to demonstrate the important rate of IJV site variations in a random healthy pop-ulation. We tested 450 subjects (244 male, 206 female) in our hospital Ultrasound Ambulatory using an Ansaldo AUS ul-trasound device with linear 10 MHz probe on both sides at the Sedillot triangle level and noticed the relations between IJV and carotid artery course. The most frequent location of IJV was the anterior lateral (79.3% on the right side, 83.5% on the left). The re-maining options were lateral, anterior, posterior-lateral, anterior-medial. We found no significant difference in IJV diameter on either side of the neck. We therefore consider IJV puncture with ultrasound guidance to be the first choice in central venous cannulation for hemodialysis treatment. This procedure helps avoid incorrect puncture of the carotid artery related to its abnormal location. PMID:17638262

Targeted ultrasound is the procedure of choice for detecting rudimentary branchial cysts causing jugular and subclavian vein thrombosis.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of this study was to facilitate the imaging diagnosis of branchial cysts leading to combined jugular and subclavian vein thrombosis during ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). Three women developed combined jugular and subclavian vein thrombosis following OHSS related to assisted reproductive technologies. The imaging modalities used for diagnosis were a bimode Doppler ultrasound, MRI of the neck in two women, computed tomography (CT) angiography and venography in one. Targeted ultrasound identified the rudimentary cysts in all patients, whereas CT angiography performed with contrast material failed to detect the cyst, which resembled a vessel with thrombus in the lumen. MRI performed at the same level did detect the cyst; however, MRI of the neck requires special attention using a dedicated cystic protocol at the base of the neck. Venography was performed in one patient; it demonstrated the thrombosed vein possibly with some extrinsic compression, but it could not define a cyst. Targeted ultrasound is the simplest and best imaging modality for discerning rudimentary cysts in pregnant women with OHSS who present with jugular and subclavian vein thrombosis following assisted reproductive technology. A search for the cyst at the time of OHSS is important, as early detection could decrease the risk of developing thrombosis. PMID:20885297

Ultrasonographic finding of internal jugular vein during anti-G straining maneuver: is it associated with gravity-induced loss of consciousness?  

Science.gov (United States)

Gravity-induced loss of consciousness (G-LOC) is caused by loss of cerebral blood flow during high +Gz (head-to-foot inertial forces). The resistance of the jugular vein is a significant factor in decrease in cerebral blood flow. Ultrasonography of thoracic inlet veins, including internal jugular vein, is feasible to visualize the internal jugular vein and hemodynamic information. Anti-gravity straining maneuver (AGSM) was widely recognized as one of the important factors in preventing G-LOC. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the ultrasonographic shape and size of internal jugular vein during AGSM and G-LOC. 47 trainee pilots who participated in human centrifuge education program were enrolled. They were all men, and their mean age was 23.9 +/- 1.38 years. Questionnaire sheets were used to collect information about well-being sensation, smoking, drinking, height, and weight. Using ultrasonography, we monitored shape and size of internal jugular vein during AGSM. After ultrasonographic examination, 47 subjects underwent human centrifuge on the same day. The protocol of human centrifuge training was maximal 6G with sustaining time of 30 s. G-LOC occurred to ten out of 47 subjects in human centrifuge. To find presumptive variable associated with G-LOC, we performed logistic regression analysis. Concave contour and smaller cross-sectional area of internal jugular vein during AGSM were associated with G-LOC. PMID:20186423

Volume reduction of the jugular foramina in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels with syringomyelia  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Understanding the pathogenesis of the chiari-like malformation in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (CKCS is incomplete, and current hypotheses do not fully explain the development of syringomyelia (SM in the spinal cords of affected dogs. This study investigates an unconventional pathogenetic theory for the development of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF pressure waves in the subarachnoid space in CKCS with SM, by analogy with human diseases. In children with achondroplasia the shortening of the skull base can lead to a narrowing of the jugular foramina (JF between the cranial base synchondroses. This in turn has been reported to cause a congestion of the major venous outflow tracts of the skull and consequently to an increase in the intracranial pressure (ICP. Amongst brachycephalic dog breeds the CKCS has been identified as having an extremely short and wide braincase. A stenosis of the JF and a consequential vascular compromise in this opening could contribute to venous hypertension, raising ICP and causing CSF jets in the spinal subarachnoid space of the CKCS. In this study, JF volumes in CKCSs with and without SM were compared to assess a possible role of this pathologic mechanism in the development of SM in this breed. Results Computed tomography (CT scans of 40 CKCSs > 4 years of age were used to create three-dimensional (3D models of the skull and the JF. Weight matched groups (7–10 kg of 20 CKCSs with SM and 20 CKCSs without SM were compared. CKCSs without SM presented significantly larger JF -volumes (median left JF: 0.0633 cm3; median right JF: 0.0703 cm3; p 3; median right JF: 0.0434 cm3; p Conclusion A stenosis of the JF and consecutive venous congestion may explain the aetiology of CSF pressure waves in the subarachnoid space, independent of cerebellar herniation, as an additional pathogenetic factor for the development of SM in this breed.

Incompetence of internal jugular vein valve in patients with transient global amnesia  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Background/Aim. Transient global amnesia (TGA could be related to acute ischemic disturbances in mesial parts of temporal lobes, which are important for memory. Incompetence of internal jugular vein (IJV valve with venous congestion causes venous microthrombosis of hippocampus. The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency of IJV valve incompetence, as well as other hemodynamic and structural properties of cerebral circulation in TGA patients. Methods. IJV valve competence was investigated in 40 TGA patients and 30 persons of the control group (matched by age and sex, as well as detection of microembolic signals and detection of right to left cardiopulmonal shunt, cerebral vasomotor reactivity and echocardiography by color triplex ultrasonography and transcranial doppler. Results. A significant difference in frequency of IJV valve incompetence was found between the TGA patients and the control persons (55% TGA vs 30% controls; p < 0.001. We did not find a significant structural (plaques frequency or hemodynamic (flow velocity, pulsatility index differences on arteries of the neck and cerebral arteries between the TGA patients and the controls, except for the increased pulsatility index on the basilar artery (40% TGA vs 16.6% controls; p < 0.01 and decreased vasomotor reactivity in TGA patients (50% TGA vs 26.6% controls; p < 0.001. Microembolic signals were detected very rarely (17.5% TGA patients vs 13.3% controls; p > 0.05, as well as right to left cardiopulmonal shunt (15% TGA vs 16.6% controls; p > 0.05, indicating that embolism was not important for pathogenesis of TGA. Transesophageal echocardiography confirmed it, because only one TGA patient had a potent foramen ovale. Conclusion. We found a significantly increased frequency of IJV incompetence in the TGA patients, which confirmed the role of vein drainage disturbances in pathogenesis of TGA.

A Consultoria Interna de Recursos Humanos como Prática Catalisadora da Gestão do Conhecimento Organizacional  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Este artigo objetiva analisar a contribuição da Consultoria Interna de Recursos Humanos para a Gestão do Conhecimento nas indústrias catarinenses de grande porte. Os procedimentos metodológicos seguiram a linha qualitativa, por meio da pesquisa descritiva e aplicada. Foram entrevistadas sete das maiores empresas catarinenses em número de funcionários. Utilizou-se análise documental e de conteúdo. Quanto aos resultados, a consultoria interna auxilia principalmente nas etapas de socialização e externalização do conhecimento. Além disso, se implementada na sua totalidade e dada autonomia ao consultor interno, permite uma maior interação nos níveis individual, grupal e organizacional descritos por Sabbag (2007. Assim, pode-se perceber que as empresas que possuem maior grau de autonomia, bem como maior nível de implementação são aquelas que os processos são mais compartilhados, socializados e internalizados pelos funcionários. Dessa forma, pode-se afirmar que, nas empresas analisadas, o desenvolvimento dos processos de CIRH catalisa os resultados da Gestão do Conhecimento nas mesmas.

Configuraciones organizativas en sectores dinámicos y hostiles: adecuación al contexto sectorial, coherencia interna y resultados  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available En este trabajo estudiamos, desde un enfoque configuracional, la existencia de diferencias de resultados entre las configuraciones organizativas en función de su coherencia interna y su adecuación a las características del sector. A partir de una muestra de 231 empresas de un sector dinámico y hostil -Electrónica, Informática y Telecomunicaciones-, analizamos las configuraciones organizativas que conviven en el mismo. Hemos obtenido seis configuraciones organizativas, que nos permiten aproximarnos a la tipología de Zammuto (1988, incorporando nuevas dimensiones estratégicas y empresariales para explorar su coherencia interna, vinculadas a las estrategias adoptadas, las capacidades, el proceso estratégico y el proceso de desarrollo de nuevos productos. Los resultados obtenidos corroboran la mayoría de las hipótesis planteadas, aunque algunas de ellas de manera débil en función de la medida de resultados utilizada. Detectamos una configuración de empresas exitosas -prospectores/r-generalistas- que, pese a ser seguidoras tempranas y no alcanzar la mayor amplitud de dominio, obtienen unos resultados superiores al resto de configuraciones, debido a su adecuación a la dinamicidad y hostilidad del contexto sectorial y a la fuerte coherencia interna de los factores analizados.

Relationship between the diameter of great saphenous vein and body mass index / Relação entre o diâmetro da veia safena magna e o índice de massa corporal  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: Este estudo teve o objetivo de comparar o diâmetro da veia safena magna em diferentes níveis dos membros inferiores e o índice de massa corporal dos sujeitos para determinar uma possível relação entre esses fatores. MÉTODOS: Cinqüenta e dois membros inferiores de 26 voluntários (seis homen [...] s e 20 mulheres) sem registro de doença venosa crônica, com idades entre 21 e 68 anos, foram avaliados. O índice de massa corporal foi definido antes do eco-Doppler colorido. Os sistemas venosos superficial e profundo e as veias perfurantes foram avaliados de acordo com a literatura. O diâmetro da veia safena magna foi medido através de imagem ultra-sonográfica longitudinal em sete níveis diferentes. Para a análise estatística, foram utilizados o teste t de Student para dados pareados e o teste de Spearman. RESULTADOS: A diferença observada na veia safena no segundo e terceiro níveis, quando comparada aos membros inferiores direito e esquerdo, não foi considerada significativa, e somente um grupo foi formado para a comparação com o índice de massa corporal. A correlação foi considerada estatisticamente irrelevante. CONCLUSÃO: Através da comparação dos diâmetros da veia safena magna com o índice de massa corporal dos sujeitos, percebeu-se que a relação entre esses dois fatores não é significativa e, portanto, pode-se concluir que indivíduos altos e magros podem ter veias safenas magnas com diâmetros similares aos de indivíduos baixos e gordos. Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: This study has been designed to correlate the diameter of the greater saphenous vein in different levels of the lower limbs with the body mass index of each individual to determine a possible relation between them. METHODS: Fifty-two lower limbs in 26 volunteers (six males and 20 females) [...] without a chronic venous disease record, aged 21-68 were evaluated. Prior to color-flow duplex scanning the body mass index was defined. The deep and superficial venous systems and perforator veins were assessed as described in the literature. The diameter of the greater saphenous vein was measured with ultrasound longitudinal imaging in seven different levels. For the statistical analysis, Student t test for paired data and Spearman test were used. RESULTS: The difference observed in saphenous venous in the second and third levels when compared to the lower right and left limbs was not considered significant and a single group was formed to correlate with body mass index. The correlation was considered statistically irrelevant. CONCLUSION: By correlating the diameters of the greater saphenous vein with the body mass index of each individual it was noted that the relation between them is not significant, therefore it can be assumed that tall thin individuals can have greater saphenous vein with similar diameter as short fat individuals.

Existem alguns fatores de risco tais c [...] omo: sexo masculino, cirrose avançada, doença hepática alcoólica e cirurgia prévia para hipertensão portal. Os autores relatam o caso de uma criança de 4 anos, do sexo feminino, que sofria de doença terminal do fígado resultante de atresia de vias biliares e que tinha submetido, sem sucesso, a uma operação de Kasai. Ela se submeteu a um transplante ortotópico de fígado por cirrose biliar secundária. Durante a cirurgia uma hipoplasia portal severa do receptor foi encontrada. Uma anastomose entre a veia gástrica esquerda do receptor e a veia porta do doador foi feita. Reperfusão hepática e subseqüente função do fígado foram excelentes. A paciente recebeu alta hospitalar no trigésimo dia. A veia gástrica esquerda pode ser uma alternativa para revascularização portal no transplante hepático. Abstract in english Portal vein thrombosis or hipoplasia have not been, anymore, a contraindication for orthotopic liver transplantation. Nevertheless, it remains an obstacle associated with increased incidence of primary and long-term liver failure. There are some risk factors like being male, advanced cirrhosis, alco [...] holic liver disease and previos surgery for portal hypertension. The authors report a case of a 4-yr-old female patient who suffered from end-stage liver disease resulting from biliary atresia with failed Kasai´s operation. She underwent orthotopic liver transplantation for secondary biliary cirrhosis. During surgery a severe recipient portal vein hipoplasia was found. An anastomosis between the recipient left gastric vein and the graft portal vein was performed. Hepatic reperfusion and subsequent liver function were excellent. The patient left hospital on the 30th postoperative day. The left gastric vein can be an alternative of portal revascularization in liver transplant.

Venous drainage from the tail of the pancreas to the lienal vein and its relationship with the distal splenorenal shunt selectivity Drenagem venosa da cauda do pâncreas para a veia lienal e sua relação com a seletividade da anastomose esplenorrenal  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available PURPOSE: To identify the veins draining from the pancreatic tail to the lienal vein and its possible relationship with the loss of the distal splenorenal shunt selectivity. METHODS: Thirty eight human blocks including stomach, duodenum, spleen, colon and pancreas, removed from fresh corpses, were studied with the replenish and corrosion technique, using vinilic resin and posterior corrosion of the organic tissue with commercial hydrochloric acid, in order to study the lienal vein and its tributaries. RESULTS: The number of veins flowing directly to the splenic vein varied from seven to twenty two (14.52 ± 3.53. Pancreatic branches of the pancreatic tail flowing to the segmentary veins of the spleen were found in 25 of the anatomical pieces studied (65.79%. These branches varied from one to four, predominating one branch (60% and two branches (24%. CONCLUSIONS: In 65.79% of the anatomical pieces studied, the veins of the pancreatic tail flowed in segmentary branches of the splenic vein.

Throbbing tinnitus in aberrant internal carotid artery aggravated by elevation of the jugular bulb. A case report  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Vascular anomalies in the middle ear are rarely observed. They cause no symptoms in the majority of cases, although some may be associated with tinnitus. The false diagnosis of glomus tumour may lead to considerable problems, if surgery is performed. It is therefore necessary that precise pre-operative data are obtained, preferably based on contrast-enhanced computerized tomography. Subsequent 2D and 3D image reconstructions provide further vascular findings regarding the topographic and anatomic factors involved and eliminate the need for invasive angiography of the carotid artery or retrograde jugular venography to make a firm diagnosis.

Comparison of results of placement of cuffed -tunneled hemodialysis catheter in internal jugular vein with subclavian vein for long -term dialysis.  

Science.gov (United States)

Aim of the study was to comparison between internal jugular vs. subclavian vein cuffed tunnel catheter placement for dialysis. Material and methods. Cases who required central venous catheter for dialysis were included in this study. Forty cases were included in this study and divided to two groups. Catheters were placed randomly in internal jugular vein or subclavian. Patients were followed for 6 months. Early and late complications of catheter's placement were recorded. Analysis was done using Spss ver 13.0 (Chicago, IL, USA). Results. There were no significant differences between subclavian and internal jugular vein regarding occurrence of infection resulted in extraction or treatment. Also there were no significant differences regarding occurrence of thrombosis resulted in extraction or treatment. Failure rate was significantly higher in cases with internal jugular vein catheter compared to cases with subclavian vein catheter (p=0.04). Conclusion. Failure rate was significantly higher in cases with internal jugular vein catheter compared to subclavian cathether. Subclavian catheter is more appropriate route for catheter placement.

An experimental study on MR imaging of jugular venous thrombosis in dogs  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

This study was designed to evaluate the potential application of MRI in differentiating static blood from thrombus, age-related changes of thrombus and the signal differences of the intravascular thrombus in various pulse sequences. External jugular vein was ligated at both upper and lower ends to from a static blood column, and thrombin was injected into the column to cause venous thrombosis in a total of 15 mongrel dogs. The MR images were obtained with T1- and T2-weighted spin echo and gradient echo techniques, lmmediately after the formation of static blood and after 2 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks and 4 weeks of the formation of thrombus at a 2.0 T MR unit. The signal intensities of the thrombus and adjacent muscles were compared subjectively, and the signal intensity ratio was compared objectively by the measurement of the signal intensities using a cursor. The MRI findings were compared with histologic findings. The signal intensities of static blood were hyperintense in all pulse sequences, and those of 2 hour, 1 day and 1 week old thrombi were hyperintense in all pulse sequence. The number of experimental thrombi which showed isointensity on T1- and T2-weighted image, and hyperintensity on gradient echo image increased as thrombi aged. The signal intensities of 2 week old thrombus were isointense on T1-weighted image, hyperintense on T2-weighted image, and hyperintense on gradient echo image, while those of 4 week old thrombus were isointense on T1-weighted and T2-weighted image, and hypointense on gradient echo image in most experimental thrombi. There was a tendency to decrease in a signal intensity ratio as thrombi aged on T1-weighted, T2-weighted and gradient echo images(p<0.01). Histologically, thrombus was not formed and lumen was filled with many red blood cells(RBCs) in 2 hour old specimen, but fibrin mesh was visible and RBCs decreased in number in 1 day old specimen. In 1 week old specimen, vessel was contrasted and lumen was filled with thrombus, RBCs, platelets, many fibrins and capillary like structures. The histologic findings of 2 week old thrombus were similar to those of 1 week old one except calcification. In 4 week old specimen, vessels were contrasted and lumen was obliterated with fibrosis and organization of the thrombus. Therefore, it is possible diagnose thrombus, and to assess sequential changes of MRI findings of thrombus by using all pulse sequences, and these results can be essential bases for the interpretation of MR images of patients with venous thrombosis

First clinical experience in applying XperGuide in embolization of jugular paragangliomas by direct intratumoral puncture  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The purpose of this study is to introduce a novel image-guided technique utilized in the embolization of jugular paraganglioma tumors, using preoperative diagnostic scans and planning together with perioperative X-ray fluoroscopy in a combined image. A lesion center and a skin entry point on the patient are selected and connected with a straight line, which resembles the most ideal lesion access trajectory to be followed during the needle insertion. The skin entry point and the corresponding line location are selected such that it avoids the impenetrable bones and vital anatomical structures. Two viewing incidence angles are defined to guide the cranial needle insertion: the entry view tangent to the planned trajectory, and the progression view perpendicular to the path. The proposed method was applied in two patients with jugular paragangliomas in order to navigate needles to the lesion location and subsequently embolize the tumors. The perioperative registration took less than 8 s. Using this method, it was possible to guide the needle within 5 mm of the planned path. The fluoroscopic needle navigation, overlaid on the corresponding soft tissue of the underlying anatomy, combined with a planned path, has been shown to be an accurate and efficient tool for needle guidance. The patient pose varied between the preoperative data and the fluoroscopy guided intervention, but this did not hinder the procedure. (orig.)

Imaging of human thrombi in the rabbit jugular vein. I. Comparison of two fibrin-specific monoclonal antibodies  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

The development of monoclonal antibodies with a specificity for cross-linked fibrin may have a potential role in the detection and of thrombi and thrombolytic therapy. In this study, two monoclonal antibodies with a specificity for fibrin have been examined. In vitro studies have shown NIBn 123 (which has a high affinity for X-oligomer) and DD-3B6 to bind to immobilized fibrin on PVC plates as well as plasma clots which were incubated in the presence of plasma. The Km values for NIBn 123 and DD-3B6 wre 1.0 x 10(10)/7.7 x 10(8) M and 2.6 x 10(8) M respectively. No significant binding to fibrinogen either immobilized or in solution was found. The binding of these antibodies to a human thrombus in the jugular vein of the rabbit was monitored over a 24 hour period. Preferential binding of each antibody reached a ratio of approximately 1.0 (jugular/heart) at 24 hours and an image was detected.

Effect of slow versus rapid rewarming on jugular bulb oxygen saturation in adult patients undergoing open heart surgery  

Science.gov (United States)

Background: A debate has appeared in the recent literature about the optimum rewarming strategy (slow vs. rapid) for the best brain function. This study was designed to compare the effect of slow versus rapid rewarming on jugular bulb oxygen saturation (SjO2) in adult patients undergoing open heart surgery. Materials and Methods: A total of 80 patients undergoing valve and adult congenital heart surgery were randomly allocated equally to rapid rewarming group 0.5 (0.136)°C/min and slow rewarming group 0.219 (0.055)°C/min in jugular bulb sampling was taken before, during and after surgery. Surgery was done at cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) temperature of 28-30°C and rewarming was performed at the end of the surgical procedure. Results: CPB time, rewarming period were significantly longer in the slow rewarming group. Significant difference was observed in the number of the desaturated patients (SjO2 ? 50%) between the two groups; 14 (35%) in rapid rewarming versus 6 (15%) in the slow rewarming group; P = 0.035 by Fisher's exact test. Conclusions: Slow rewarming could reduce the incidence of SjO2 desaturation during rewarming in adult patients undergoing open heart surgery.

Migración interna y ciudades de América Latina: efectos sobre la composición de la población  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available La migración, por su selectividad, afecta la composición de la población de los lugares de destino y origen. Mediante el procesamiento de microdatos censales se obtienen matrices de indicadores de flujos migratorios; con ellas, y usando procedimientos novedosos, se estima el efecto neto y exclusivo de la migración sobre la composición por sexo, edad y educación de doce ciudades de siete países de la región. Luego, este efecto se segmenta entre el originado por el intercambio con otras ciudades y el producido por el intercambio con el resto del sistema de asentamientos humanos de cada país. A continuación, y como ejercicio separado, se descompone el efecto debido a la inmigración y el debido a la emigración. Los principales resultados de la investigación son: a la migración interna total (entre ciudades y con el resto del sistema de asentamientos humanos sigue tendiendo a feminizar las ciudades, pero ya no por la atracción selectiva de mujeres, sino por una emigración selectiva de hombres; b la migración interna tiende a robustecer la franja intermedia de edad y a comprimir la representación de los menores de 15 años y de los adultos mayores en las ciudades. La combinación de estos efectos sobre la estructura por edad de la población de las ciudades acrecienta el denominado "bono demográfico" de éstas; c la migración interna tiende a deprimir, en general ligeramente, los niveles educativos de las ciudades (incluso una vez controlada la edad; el intercambio con otras ciudades es el responsable principal de este efecto, por lo cual resulta inapropiado achacarlo a la migración desde el campo; d la inmigración tiende a elevar el nivel educativo promedio de las ciudades, por lo cual el efecto reductor observado se debe a la emigración. Estos resultados actualizan, modifican y complejizan la visión existente en materia de impacto de la migración interna sobre las ciudades. Aunque cada ciudad tiene sus especificidades y las recomendaciones de política deben basarse en la realidad de cada una de ellas, en general se advierten efectos mixtos de la migración sobre las ciudades, ya que se ven favorecidas por el efecto sobre ciertos atributos (como el bono demográfico pero en otros aspectos se ven debilitadas (como en la educación promedio. Cualquiera que sea el caso, los resultados sugieren que las políticas destinadas a influir sobre la inmigración -amén de desaconsejables e incompatibles con los acuerdos internacionales en materia de población, cuando se trata de medidas que limitan el libre desplazamiento de las personas- han perdido relevancia por cuanto los efectos cualitativos de la migración dependen principalmente de la emigración.

Hacia una critica interna de la teoría del intercambio desigual de Emmanuel  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available El presente ensayo constituye apenas una versión parcial y preliminar de un trabajo más extenso que el autor está desarrollando sobre la teoría del intercambio desigual de Emmanuel. Entendido así el carácter de éste, su objetivo se limita únicamente a estudiar los principales supuestos, inconsistencias y vicios teóricos y metodológicos implícitos en
el "traslado" particular que Emmanuel realiza del esquema de precios de Marx al plano del comercio internacional. En otras palabras, el análisis aquí incluido corresponde más a lo que en la literatura se denomina una crítica interna que a una crítica externa de la teoría de intercamhio desigual de Emmanuel.

Expression of apoptosis in human saphenous vein grafts in restoration of blood flow through coronary bypass surgery / Expressão da apoptose em enxertos de veias safenas humana para restauração do fluxo sanguíneo coronariano por derivação  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: English Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: Investigar o possível papel da apoptose em distensões breves de veias safenas humanas em diferentes pressões. MÉTODOS: Segmentos frescos isolados de veia safena humana foram distribuídos em 4 grupos: controle ou distendidos (D) por quinze segundos a 100, 200 e 300 mmHg. O grau de apoptose [...] das caspases 3, 8, 9 e expressão da proteína anti-apoptótica Bcl-2 foram avaliados por imuno-histoquímica. RESULTADOS: Segmentos frescos distendidos isolados de veias safenas humanas apresentaram expressão protéica para apoptose similar às veias controle. No entanto, a expressão de Bcl-2 foi significativamente maior nos segmentos distendidos a 300 mmHg, quando comparados à veia controle. CONCLUSÃO: Estes achados demonstram que segmentos intactos de veias safenas humanas submetidos a distensões em diferentes pressões têm expressão de proteínas apoptóticas similares quando comparados com veias controle nãodistendidas. Por conseguinte, breves distensões comumente realizadas durante a coleta cirúrgica não ativam o processo de apoptose e, provavelmente, não estão envolvidas em mecanismos fisiopatológicos que levam à falência do enxerto Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: To investigate the possible role of apoptosis on brief distensions of human saphenous veins at different pressures. METHODS: Fresh isolated grafts of human saphenous vein were assigned as control or distended (D) for fifteen seconds at 100, 200 and 300 mmHg. The degree of apoptotic caspas [...] es 3, 8, 9 and anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2 expression were assessed by immunohistochemistry. RESULTS: Fresh isolated segments of distended human saphenous veins presented similar apoptotic protein expression when compared with control veins. However, the Bcl-2 expression was significantly higher in the 300 mmHg distended segments compared with the control vein. CONCLUSION: These findings show that intact segments of human saphenous veins submitted to distensions at different pressures have similar apoptotic proteins expression when compared with non-distended control veins. Therefore, brief distensions commonly performed during surgical harvesting do not trigger apoptosis, and probably are not involved on the physiopathological mechanisms that lead to graft failure

Estudo anatômico da veia braquial comum como via de drenagem colateral do membro superior / Anatomic study of the common brachial vein as a collateral drainage channel of the upper limb  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese CONTEXTO: Traumatismos ou tromboses que possam evoluir com alterações da drenagem venosa do membro superior, dependendo do território interrompido, podem ter como mecanismo compensatório uma via colateral de drenagem sem que haja prejuízo para o retorno venoso desse membro. A veia braquial comum apr [...] esenta-se como uma alternativa plausível e pouco conhecida. OBJETIVO: Descrever a anatomia da veia braquial comum como via de drenagem colateral no membro superior. MÉTODOS: Utilizamos 30 cadáveres do sexo masculino, cujos membros superiores estavam articulados ao tronco, não importando a raça, formolizados e mantidos em conservação com solução de formol a 10%. Utilizamos como critérios de exclusão cadáveres com um dos membros desarticulado ou alterações deformantes em topografia das estruturas estudadas. RESULTADOS: A veia braquial comum esteve presente em 73% (22/30) dos cadáveres estudados, sendo que em 18% (04/22) dos casos drenou para a veia basílica no seguimento proximal do braço e em 82% (18/22), para a veia axilar. CONCLUSÃO: A veia braquial comum está frequentemente presente e, na maior parte das vezes, desemboca na veia axilar. Abstract in english BACKGROUND: Trauma and thrombosis that can result in changes in the venous drainage of the upper limb, depending on the vascular territory interrupted, may have as a compensatory mechanism a collateral drainage channel that prevents damage to the venous return of that limb. The common brachial vein [...] is a plausible and little known collateral channel for this purpose. OBJECTIVE: To describe the anatomy of the common brachial vein as a collateral drainage channel of the upper limb. METHODS: We have dissected 30 cadavers of people of different races, whose upper limbs were articulated to the trunk and preserved in a 10% formaldehyde solution. The exclusion criteria were disarticulated limbs or deformities in the topography of the studied structures. RESULTS: The common brachial vein was present in 73% (22/30) of the cadavers dissected. The common brachial vein drained into the axillary vein in 82% (18/22) and into the basilic vein in the proximal segment of the upper limb in 18% of the cadavers (04/22). CONCLUSION: The common brachial vein is frequently present, and, in most cases, it drains into the axillary vein.

Full Text Available Relatamos o caso de uma paciente portadora de síndrome da veia cava superior sintomática de origem benigna tratada pela técnica endovascular. A angiorressonância magnética pré-angioplastia evidenciou extensa trombose do tronco braquiocefálico esquerdo, da veia subclávia esquerda e obstrução da veia cava superior junto ao tronco braquiocefálico direito. A paciente realizou mastectomia radical 2 anos antes, associada à quimioterapia e radioterapia do tórax. Foram realizados angioplastia venosa e implante de stent expansível por balão. O resultado foi satisfatório, com alívio imediato dos sintomas devido à recanalização da veia cava superior e do tronco braquiocefálico direito. Foi instituída anticoagulação oral. A paciente permanece sem recidiva dos sintomas após 8 meses de acompanhamento. O tratamento endovascular é uma alternativa terapêutica com baixa morbidade e resultado satisfatório a médio prazo que pode ser oferecida aos pacientes portadores de síndrome da veia cava superior.We report a case of a patient with symptomatic benign superior vena cava syndrome treated by the endovascular technique. The angiographic resonance before angioplasty showed extensive thrombosis of the left brachiocephalic trunk, left subclavian vein and superior vena cava obstruction close to the right brachiocephalic trunk. The patient underwent radical mastectomy 2 years ago with adjuvant chemotherapy and chest radiotherapy. Venous angioplasty and balloon-expandable stenting were performed. Satisfactory result was obtained with immediate relief of symptoms due to recanalization of the right brachiocephalic trunk and superior vena cava. Oral anticoagulation was initiated. The patient is still asymptomatic after 8 months of follow-up. The endovascular treatment is a therapeutic alternative with low morbidity and satisfactory mid-term results that can be offered to patients with superior vena cava syndrome.

Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Avaliar os dados relativos à utilização de filtro de veia cava na Divisão de Trauma do Centro Médico da UCSD San Diego, CA/EUA. MÉTODOS: Estudo descritivo realizado na Divisão de Trauma visando avaliar a experiência acumulada e a conduta terapêutica nos doentes atendidos pela equipe da Divisão de Trauma e submetidos à colocação de filtro de veia cava como método de prevenção ou tratamento do TEP no período de janeiro de 1999 a dezembro de 2008. RESULTADOS: O estudo compreendeu 512 doentes, destacando-se o sexo masculino (73%. Quanto à causa do traumatismo predominou o acidente automobilístico, seguido por lesões provocadas por quedas. A relação homem/mulher foi 3:1. A faixa etária mais atingida foi 21 a 40 anos, representando 36% dos doentes. O percentual de filtros de cava profiláticos foi de 82% contra 18% de filtros terapêuticos. O traumatismo craniano foi a principal causa para indicação de filtros profiláticos seguido dos traumas raquimedulares. O índice de TVP pós-filtro foi 11%. CONCLUSÃO: Na presença de contraindicação ao uso de anticoagulantes em doentes vítimas de trauma grave, os filtros de veia cava inferior demonstraram ser uma opção efetiva e segura. Entretanto, deve-se aplicar rigor ao julgamento clínico para todas as indicações, mesmo após o advento de filtros "recuperáveis".OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the data on the use of vena cava filter in the Division of Trauma, UCSD Medical Center - San Diego, CA / USA. METHODS: A descriptive study was conducted at the Division of Trauma to evaluate the cumulated experience and the therapeutic approach in patients attended by the staff of the Division of Trauma and submitted to placement of a vena cava filter as a method of prevention or treatment of Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PTE from January 1999 to December 2008. RESULTS: The study comprised 512 patients, mostly males (73%. As to the cause, automobile accident injuries predominated, followed by injuries caused by falls. The male / female ratio was 3:1. The most affected age group was the one between 21 to 40 years, representing 36% of patients. The percentage of prophylactic vena cava filters was 82%, whilst 18% had treatment purposes. Head trauma was the main cause for the indication of prophylactic filters followed by spinal cord trauma. The rate of pos-filter deep vein thrombosis (DVT was 11%. CONCLUSION: In the presence of contraindications to the use of anticoagulants in patients who suffered severe trauma, the inferior vena cava filters have proven to be an effective and safe optio n. However, one should apply rigorous clinical judgment to all indications, even after the advent of retrievable filters.

Balloon atrial septostomy through internal jugular vein in a 45-day-old child with transposition of great arteries  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Balloon atrial septostomy is a common palliative procedure in D-transposition of great arteries. It is technically easy before 2-3 weeks of age when the septum primum is thin. Femoral vein or umbilical vein, when available, is the common access used for this procedure. In situations when these accesses are not available or in case of inferior vena cava interruption, trans-hepatic access is used. Internal jugular vein (IJV access is not used as it is difficult to enter the left atrium through this route. We describe a case of successful Balloon atrial septostomy done through IJV in a 45-day-old child with emphasis on the technique, hardware and precautions necessary during the procedure.

A rare case of looping of supraclavicular nerve branches around external jugular vein and transverse cervical artery  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Awareness of the topographic anatomy of various neurovascular variations in the triangles of the neck may serve as a useful guide for radiologists, anesthesiologists and surgeons. It can help to prevent diagnostic errors, influence surgical and interventional procedures and avoid surgical complications during head and neck surgeries. Here we present the detailed case report with review of the literature of a 55-year-old formalin fixed male cadaver showing an unusual loop formation from the three main branches of supraclavicular nerve around the external jugular vein and the transverse cervical artery on the right side of the neck. Such a loop may lead to neurovascular symptoms. Cases bearing this kind of variations should be managed carefully during surgical and/or electrophysiological procedures.

Magnetic resonance tomography with Gd-DTPA in the diagnosis of paragangliomas of the carotid and jugular bodies  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The value of magnetic resonance tomography in the diagnosis of paragangliomas in the head and neck has been studied and compared with CT and angiography. Magnetic resonance tomography on its own equals the accuracy of CT, but the use of Gd-DTPA improves diagnostic accuracy. In 19 patients with a glomus jugulare tumour, MR tomography with Gd-DTPA accurately diagnosed all tumours larger than 5 mm. In seven patients with a carotid body tumour, it was possible to arrive at an exact differential diagnosis. Sensitivity was better than that of CT or of sonography. Where there is clinical suspicion of a glomus tumour, magnetic resonance tomography with Gd-DTPA should be the first investigation; if there is a positive finding, angiography should be carried out to demonstrate the circle of Willis.

Avaliação in vitro de um novo filtro de veia cava / In vitro evaluation of a new vena cava filter  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: O objetivo do estudo foi avaliar a eficácia de um novo filtro de veia cava, de baixo perfil, na retenção de coágulos em modelo in vitro. MÉTODO: O filtro consiste em dois cones opostos pelo ápice. O cone distal é formado por oito hastes de aço inoxidável, que têm a função de retenção dos ê [...] mbolos. O cone proximal é constituído de quatro hastes, cuja função é ancorar e centralizar. Os filtros foram introduzidos e fixados no interior de um tubo de PVC transparente de 25, 30 e 35 mm de diâmetro interno, em posição vertical, e conectados com um sistema pulsátil de fluxo (bomba peristáltica). Foi utilizado, para veículo, um reservatório com solução salina (0,9%) com 40% de glicerina, mantido em temperatura ambiente. Confeccionaram-se trombos com sangue bovino em tubos plásticos de 3, 4,5 e 6 mm de diâmetro e, posteriormente, foram segmentados nas medidas de 10, 15, 20 e 30 mm de comprimento, totalizando 12 diferentes tamanhos. Realizaram-se 100 liberações para cada tipo de êmbolo e tamanho das cânulas, totalizando 3.600 eventos. Foram feitos lançamentos seqüenciais com cinco êmbolos, sendo 10 para cada tamanho de êmbolo e cânulas, totalizando 360 eventos. Fez-se avaliação da capacidade de retenção dinâmica utilizando os três diferentes tamanhos de cânulas com 100 eventos cada, totalizando 300 eventos. RESULTADOS: Detectou-se que o diâmetro e comprimento dos êmbolos, assim como diâmetros da cânula, podem comprometer a eficácia do filtro. A média de captura de êmbolos pelos filtros foi de 80,5% nas cânulas de 35 mm, 88,7% para cânulas de 30 mm e 86,6% para cânulas de 25 mm. CONCLUSÃO: Conclui-se que a eficácia desse filtro sofre interferência relacionada ao tamanho dos êmbolos e diâmetro da cânula. Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: The objective of the current study was to evaluate the efficacy of a new low-profile vena cava filter in the retention of emboli in an in vitro model. METHOD: The filter consists of two cones connected at the apexes. The distal cone is comprised of eight stainless steel arms with a purpos [...] e of retaining emboli and the proximal cone, made of four arms, acts as an anchor to centralize the filter. Filters were installed and fixed inside three systems using transparent PVC tubes of different sizes (internal diameters of 25, 30 and 35 mm) that were held in a vertical position and connected to a pulsating flow system (peristaltic pump). A reservoir of 0.9% saline solution with 40% glycerin at room temperature was used as the vehicle. Thrombi were made from bovine blood in 3-mm, 4-mm, 5-mm and 6-mm plastic tubes and later the thrombi were sectioned into 10-mm, 15-mm, 20-mm and 30-mm lengths. Each of the 12 sizes of thrombi was assessed 100 times in each of the three systems, with a total of 3,600 events. Five emboli were sequentially released, 10 for each size of embolus and tube, with a total of 360 events. An evaluation of the capacity of the three systems - 100 events each, total of 300 events - to dynamically retain the emboli was made. MRESULTS: The diameter and length of the emboli, as well as tubes greater than 35 mm in diameter can negatively affect the efficacy of the filter. The average of emboli capture for the filters was 80.5% in 35-mm tubes, 88.7% for 30-mm tubes and 86.6% for 25-mm tubes. CONCLUSION: We conclude that the efficacy of this filter is influenced by the size of the emboli and the diameter of the PVC tubes.

Transposição da Veia Basílica: um contributo para a melhoria da técnica cirúrgica Basilic Vein Transposition: improvement of the surgical technique  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Introdução: O aumento crescente da população em hemodiálise tem implicado o recurso a acessos vasculares de maior complexidade técnica. A introdução de modificações na técnica cirúrgica da transposição da veia basílica (TVB pretende agilizar o procedimento e diminuir a sua morbilidade. Métodos: Análise prospectiva das TVB efectuadas no CHP-HSA entre Setembro de 2005 e Setembro de 2009. Resultados: Efectuaram-se 74 TVB em 74 doentes, os quais tinham, em média, 2 acessos autólogos prévios. A TVB foi o primeiro acesso em 20,3% dos doentes. O intervalo médio de seguimento foi de 14,5 meses. Ocorreram 2 falências nos primeiros 30 dias. A taxa de patência secundária aos 3, 12 e 24 meses foi de 95,7%, 85,1% e 62,2%, respectivamente. A Diabetes associou-se a pior taxa de patência (p=0,018. A taxa de complicações perioperatórias foi de 28,4%, sendo a infecção a mais frequente (n=6, 8,1% do total de TVB. A trombose foi a principal causa de falência, tendo ocorrido em 24,3% de todas as TVB. Conclusões: Reconhece-se a superioridade do acesso autólogo, como a melhor opção de acesso vascular para hemodiálise. A TVB é subutilizada, devido às exigências técnicas e necessidades logísticas. Melhoramos a técnica cirúrgica e de tunelização, ao reduzir o tamanho das incisões e o tempo cirúrgico. Os nossos resultados revelaram uma boa patência a longo prazo, pelo que consideramos que deve ser mais utilizada.Introduction: The expanding haemodialysis population has lead to increased requirement for more complex vascular accesses. Modifications introduced in basilic vein transposition technique are intended to streamline the procedure and reduce its morbidity. Methods: All patients who underwent BVT from September 2005 to September 2009 in CHP-HSA were prospectively reviewed. Results: Seventy-four BVT were performed in 74 patients. Patients had a mean of 2.0 previous access attempts. BVT was the first access in 20.3% of the patients. Median follow-up was 14.5 months. There were two primary failures. Secondary patency rates were 95.7%, 85.1% and 62.2% at 3, 12 and 24 months, respectively. Diabetes was associated with poor patency. Perioperative complication rate was 28.4%, with infection being the most frequent (n=6, 8.1% of all TVB. Thrombosis was the main cause of failure, occurring in 24.3% of all TVB. Conclusion: Autologous access superiority is well established. BVT is an underused technique due to its surgical expertise needs and logistic demands. We improved the surgical technique and the tunneling technique, reducing the size of the incisions and the time of operation. Our results showed a good secondary patency rate and, in the authors view, this technique should be more widely used.

Trombose de veia central da retina em paciente usuária de interferon e ribavirina: relato de caso Central vein occlusion in a patient using interferon and ribavirin: case report  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O interferon alfa (INF alfa é droga atualmente utilizada no tratamento de várias doenças sistêmicas, como a hepatite C crônica. A ribavirina quando associada ao interferon alfa aumenta muito a resposta ao tratamento. Estima-se que a infecção crônica pelo vírus da hepatite C afete 170 milhões de pessoas no mundo, muitas delas em uso dessas medicações. A forma típica da retinopatia associada ao interferon alfa apresenta exsudatos algodonosos e hemorragias intra-retinianas. Há vários relatos de alterações oculares associadas ao uso do interferon alfa. Este trabalho descreve um caso de oclusão de veia central da retina em olho direito, com hemorragias no olho contralateral, em paciente usuária dessas medicações por dois anos. O caso descrito expõe em um dos olhos o quadro mais freqüente da retinopatia associada ao uso de interferon alfa (hemorragias de fundo e no olho contralateral, uma apresentação muito mais atípica (trombose de veia central da retina. O quadro fundoscópico apresentou melhora com a interrupção da medicação.Interferon and ribavirin are medications widely used in the treatment of some systemic diseases, mainly hepatitis C. Ribavirin when associated with interferon increases the rate of success of this treatment. There are about 170 million patients with chronic hepatitis C in the world, many in use of these medications. The classic associated retinopathy is described as cotton wool exudates and hemorrhages. Since the first reports, several different ocular disturbances were described in association with interferon. The present case shows a patient whose right eye presented with central retinal vein occlusion and whose left eye presented the typical findings of hemorrhages; prompt resolution after the medications were discontinued.

Forças mecânicas e veias safenas humanas: implicação na revascularização do miocárdio / Mechanical forces and human saphenous veins: coronary artery bypass graft implications  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese As células endoteliais vasculares estão expostas a uma variedade de forças mecânicas in vivo, resultantes do fluxo sangüíneo pulsátil. Dentre essas forças, destacam-se: forças de cisalhamento, tangenciais à parede do vaso, produzidas pelo atrito com o fluxo sangüíneo viscoso, tensão de complacência [...] da parede vascular e a pressão hidrostática do conteúdo sangüíneo no interior da vasculatura. Diversos autores estudaram as alterações hemodinâmicas, funcionais e morfológicas em veias safenas humanas causadas por esses tipos de forças com resultados conflitantes. A motivação dessa revisão foi analisar dados da literatura e alguns dados experimentais do nosso laboratório. Os aspectos revistos são: 1) Respostas endoteliais e regulação gênica causadas pelo shear stress; 2) Efeitos da pressão hidrostática na morfologia da célula endotelial, expressão gênica da superfície celular endotelial e proliferação das células endoteliais, 3) Efeitos da tração no endotélio de veias safenas humanas. Abstract in english Vascular endothelial cells are exposed to a variety of in vivo mechanical forces, specifically, shear stress for the blood flow, tensile stress from the compliance of the vessel wall and the hydrostatic pressure from containment of blood within inside the vasculature. Many authors studied hemodynami [...] c, functional and morphological human saphenous veins alterations caused by these different forces with conflictant results.

EXPANSÃO DA SOJA NO TERRITÓRIO NACIONAL: O PAPEL DA DEMANDA INTERNACIONAL E DA DEMANDA INTERNA  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Produto das discussões do segundo capítulo da tese de doutorado intitulada A Embrapa/Soja em Londrina (PR. Pesquisa agrícola dum país moderno que analisou a criação da Embrapa/Soja em Londrina, como parte integrante do projeto nacional desenvolvimentista, idealizado a partir da década de 1930. Discutem-se os fatores da expansão da soja no Brasil, a fim de entender quais agentes externos e internos foram responsáveis pelo incentivo à expansão do plantio de soja no território brasileiro, no decorrer das últimas décadas, tendo em vista a importância dessa Commodity como geradora de divisas e importante produto para o mercado interno em franca expansão. Defende-se que a expansão da soja no território nacional a partir da década de 1960 teve influência direta da demanda internacional por essa oleaginosa, além de atender à demanda interna, proveniente da crescente urbanização e mudança nos hábitos de alimentação da população brasileira.

Evaluación de un modelo didáctico analógico para el aprendizaje de energía interna y temperatura  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Las dificultades de los estudiantes para conceptualizar correctamente las leyes de la termodinámica han sido estudiadas por diferentes autores, asimismo se han detectado los errores en nociones relativas a las magnitudes involucradas. Esas dificultades parecen residir en la falta de correspondencia entre el modelo macroscópico de las leyes de la termodinámica y el modelo cinético molecular de la materia. Ambos modelos teoréticos, uno macroscópico y otro microscópico se plantean habitualmente en la clase, de modo que esta falta de conexión sería en parte proveniente de la instrucción. Consideramos que existe una continuidad entre los modelos conceptuales de los alumnos y el modelo teorético objeto del aprendizaje. En este trabajo se propone un modelo didáctico analógico para la enseñanza de los conceptos de temperatura y energía interna y se evalúa su eficiencia. Los resultados obtenidos fueron positivos mostrando una mejor utilización del modelo cinético molecular por parte de los alumnos.

Componentes y dinámicas internas de un Sistema de Innovación Regional: la Región de Los Lagos (Chile  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Los estudios de territorios reconocen ahora que la innovación y los avances tecnológicos son un importante factor de desarrollo. Por ejemplo, recurriendo a teorías de cambio tecnológico y aprendizaje colectivo, el modelo Sistemas de Innovación Regional (SIR utiliza un enfoque sistémico sobre la innovación, subrayando la importancia de variables geográficas, institucionales, económicas y culturales. Este artículo analiza y aplica el sir a la Región de Los Lagos, en Chile, y pone especial atención a dos aspectos fundamentales: los componentes y las dinámicas internas de este modelo de innovación territorial, analizando las condiciones sobre las cuales la innovación tiene lugar y la percepción de importantes actores regionales. Al aplicar el modelo de SI R a un país en desarrollo como Chile y dar especial atención a las condiciones de innovación y la percepción de actores regionales, apunta a tratar un tema poco estudiado.

Full Text Available En este trabajo se analizará la democracia interna en los partidos, a partir del estudio de la introducción de elecciones primarias abiertas, cuyo objetivo fue desarrollar un conducto comunicante entre la ciudadanía común y el poder político, tornando más democrática a la formación partidaria. A partir de un análisis comparado en cinco países de América Latina demostraremos que con las primarias abiertas no sólo no se cumple con esa finalidad sino que además es muy difícil que un partido salga indemne luego de haber expuesto públicamente sus disputas y juegos intestinos, al tiempo que este método genera una excesiva personalización de la representación, promueve enfrentamientos fratricidas y suscita una balcanización partidaria que erosionan las bases del juego político, impidiendo que sea el partido el que vehiculice las demandas surgidas en el seno de la sociedad civil.

Caracterización de recubrimientos Ni-P depositados por reducción química autocatalítica en superficies internas  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Electroless nickel deposition with sodium hypophosphite forms a Ni-P amorphous deposit with 4 to 12 % (in mass P content. The corrosion resistance of this kind of coating depends on phosphorus content, and the phosphorus content depends on the operational conditions of the bath. Usually, this coatings are deposited by total immersion of the part, but when it is wished to coat only internal surfaces (as in tubes, it is necessary to recirculate the electroless nickel solution through the tube, in order to prevent the external surface from coating. This work shows the results of the characterization of electroless coatings deposited to protect internal surfaces. Based on this study we can say that it is possible to coat internal surfaces by this technique, and that the flow regimen does not affect the coating phosphorus content; on the other hand, the deposition rate and morphological characteristics are affected.

El níquel depositado por reducción química autocatalítica con hipofosfito forma un depósito amorfo de Ni-P con un contenido de fósforo entre el 4 y el 12 % en masa. Su resistencia a la corrosión depende de la cantidad de fósforo codepositado, y éste, a su vez, de las condiciones de operación del baño niquelante. Normalmente, este tipo de recubrimientos se aplica por inmersión total de la pieza, pero, cuando se desea proteger selectivamente la superficie interna (p. ej., en el caso de tuberías es necesario recircular la solución niquelante y evitar que la superficie externa se niquele. Este trabajo presenta los resultados del estudio y caracterización de la aplicación de este tipo de recubrimientos para la protección de la superficie interna de las tuberías. Los resultados muestran que es posible proteger dicha superficie por medio de esta técnica y que el régimen de flujo no tiene efecto significativo alguno sobre el contenido de fósforo del recubrimiento, aunque sí lo tiene sobre las caracter??sticas morfológicas y su velocidad de deposición.

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available In this work we describe the assembly, operation and specifications of an inverted torsion pendulum designed to measure internal friction at low temperatures (from 4.2 K to 500 K. The high precision mechanics allow us to obtain internal friction spectra with low levels of noise from amplitudes as small as 2x10-7. The inertia components of the pendulum have been built with specific materials, so that the resonance frequency of the pendulum can be changed within two orders of magnitude (0.1-10 Hz. In addition, the sample can be in situ deformed at any temperature and can be inserted into the pendulum at liquid nitrogen temperature. The operation of the pendulum, all the control processes and data acquisition are completely automated.

Conformado por vía coloidal de recubrimientos en la cara interna de un tubo de acero  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The development of new coating processes has important limitations related to the films thickness and the geometry of the coating substrates. In this work, two colloidal forming processes are proposed for manufacturing ceramic and metallic coatings on the inner surface of a steel pipe. Ceramic coatings of CaCO3 have been formed by electrophoretic deposition (EPD. Aqueous stable suspensions were prepared and a electrophoretic cell was designed, in which the steel tube to be coated acted simultaneously as container and working electrode. Nickel films were prepared by filling the pipe with the suspension and rotating to fully wet the steel surface. Nickel suspensions were formulated focusing an improved wettability and adherence to the steel surface by using binders. From these processes, ceramic and metallic coatings with 300- 350 ?m in thickness, homogeneous and strongly adhered to the inner surface of the steel pipe have been obtained.

El desarrollo de las tecnologías de fabricación de recubrimientos presenta importantes limitaciones relativas a los espesores de las capas fabricadas y a la geometría de los substratos a recubrir. En este trabajo se proponen dos procesos de conformado coloidal de revestimientos cerámicos y metálicos en la cara interna de un tubo de acero. El revestimiento cerámico (CaCO3 se ha conformado por deposición electroforética (EPD. Para ello se han preparado suspensiones estables de CaCO3 en agua, y se ha diseñado una célula electroforética en la que el tubo es a la vez el contenedor y el electrodo de trabajo. El revestimiento metálico (níquel se ha fabricado por vertido de una suspensión estable sobre el propio tubo de acero. Para ello se han acondicionado las suspensiones con el objetivo de mejorar el mojado y la adherencia sobre el acero. A partir de los procesos de EPD y vertido se han obtenido revestimientos cerámicos y metálicos, respectivamente, con espesores de 300-350 ?m, homogéneos y fuertemente adheridos a la cara interna del tubo de acero.

Formación de microporosidad interna en polvos de acero inoxidable: cinética y mecanismo  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The internal microporosity of stainless steel powders is obtained by a technology developed in the Metallurgical Research Center (CIME in collaboration with ISPETP, which consists of carbon enrichment of alloy during the fusion process, and after powder atomization a subsequent decarburization annealing. The internal microporosity, which can reach up to 10 volume percent of the steel particle, reduces powder density and improves powder compressibility, while costs for technology installation are also reduced. In this paper the technology for obtaining the microporosity, the mathematical models of the process, and the structural transformations undergone by stainless steel powder are shown. It is concluded that for carbon contents lower than 0.05% internal microporosity tends to disappear.

El Centro de Investigaciones Metalúrgicas (CIME de La Habana, en colaboración con el Instituto Superior Pedagógico para la Educación Técnica Profesional (ISPETP, ha desarrollado una tecnología para la obtención de los polvos de acero inoxidable con microporosidad interna. La tecnología consiste en enriquecer la aleación con carbono durante la fusión y, una vez atomizado el polvo, someterlo a un recocido de descarburación. La microporosidad interna, que puede alcanzar hasta un 10 % en volumen de la partícula, reduce la densidad de los polvos y mejora su compresibilidad, al tiempo que reduce los costes de instalación. El presente trabajo muestra la tecnología de obtención de la microporosidad, los modelos matemáticos del proceso y las transformaciones estructurales que sufre el polvo de acero inoxidable. Se concluye que la microporosidad tiende a desaparecer para contenidos de carbono menores de 0,05 %.

Procedimiento para evaluar cargas internas de nutrientes en cuerpos de agua / Procedure for assessing internal nutrient loads in water bodies  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Mexico | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Con base en resultados experimentales de lixiviación de nutrientes y variaciones en potencial redox en cuerpos de agua, aquí se propone un procedimiento para evaluar cargas internas de nutrientes. Se aplicó este procedimiento en un cuerpo de agua con área de 1800 ha, profundidad máxima de 38 m y pro [...] fundidad promedio que varía entre 11 y 22 m, dependiendo de las variaciones en volumen de almacenamiento. Muestras de sedimentos combinados de zonas profundas, intermedias y someras del cuerpo de agua fueron suspendidas en agua con agitación magnética y suministro de aire o de N2 (g) para control de potencial redox. Las suspensiones fueron monitoreadas, midiendo las concentraciones disueltas de minerales y nutrientes. Se cuantificó el bióxido de carbono generado por la mineralización de materia orgánica en sedimentos mediante cuantificación de los cambios en conductividad eléctrica debido a la precipitación de carbonatos en solución alcalina. Se calculó la lixiviación de nutrientes y minerales por masa de sedimento, considerando que ésta ocurre en un espesor de sedimentos de 0.15 m con densidad de 170 kg/m³. Las cargas de nutrientes por unidad de área fueron graficadas en función del potencial redox y se obtuvieron las ecuaciones de las líneas de tendencia. Con base en datos reportados en la literatura, se calcularon áreas del cuerpo de agua que presentan los mismos intervalos de potencial redox. Aplicando las ecuaciones de las líneas de tendencia, se estimaron las cargas internas de fósforo y nitrógeno en el cuerpo de agua. Se observó que los sedimentos de áreas intermedias y profundas liberan más nitrógeno y fósforo que los de áreas someras. Mientras que tanto el nitrógeno lixiviado como el CO2 producido por la mineralización de materia orgánica aumentan conforme incrementa el potencial redox; la concentración de fósforo incrementa al disminuir el potencial redox, debido a la disolución de minerales de hierro bajo condiciones reducidas (Eh negativo) y la consecuente lixiviación de fósforo. La cantidad de fósforo lixiviado representa aproximadamente 1% del fósforo total en sedimentos. La estimación de la carga interna de fósforo sugiere que ésta ocurre principalmente durante el periodo de junio a octubre, coincidiendo con la época de estratificación del agua, mientras que la mayor carga interna de nitrógeno se presenta de diciembre a abril. Las cargas acumuladas de nitrógeno y fósforo fueron de 1153.5 t/año y de 3.7 t/año, respectivamente. Estos resultados de carga interna fueron comparados con el balance anual de nutrientes para el cuerpo de agua, que arrojó una carga interna de fósforo de 13.71/ año, que es 370% de la carga interna estimada, mientras que el balance de nitrógeno resulta en 914 t/año o 79% de la carga interna estimada con el procedimiento aquí propuesto. Por lo tanto, la aplicación del procedimiento con los datos disponibles para el cuerpo de agua resultó en la sobreestimación de carga interna de nitrógeno y la subestimación de carga interna de fósforo. Se formularon recomendaciones para perfeccionar el procedimiento propuesto. Abstract in english On the basis of nutrient lixiviation experiments and variations in redox potential in water bodies, a procedure is proposed to evaluate internal nutrient loads. This procedure was evaluated for a water body of1800 ha with a maximum depth of 38 m and an average depth between 11 and 22 m, depending on [...] the variations in storage volume. Combined sediment samples from deep, intermediate and shallow areas of the water body were suspended in water with magnetic agitation and supplies of air or N2 (g) for control of redox potential. The suspensions were monitored, measuring dissolved minerals and nutrients. Carbon dioxide produced by mineralization of organic matter in the sediments was quantified by determining variations in electrical conductivities due to the precipitation of carbonate in alkaline solutions.

Influence of Acute Jugular Vein Compression on the Cerebral Blood Flow Velocity, Pial Artery Pulsation and Width of Subarachnoid Space in Humans  

Science.gov (United States)

Purpose The aim of this study was to assess the effect of acute bilateral jugular vein compression on: (1) pial artery pulsation (cc-TQ); (2) cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV); (3) peripheral blood pressure; and (4) possible relations between mentioned parameters. Methods Experiments were performed on a group of 32 healthy 19–30 years old male subjects. cc-TQ and the subarachnoid width (sas-TQ) were measured using near-infrared transillumination/backscattering sounding (NIR-T/BSS), CBFV in the left anterior cerebral artery using transcranial Doppler, blood pressure was measured using Finapres, while end-tidal CO2 was measured using medical gas analyser. Bilateral jugular vein compression was achieved with the use of a sphygmomanometer held on the neck of the participant and pumped at the pressure of 40 mmHg, and was performed in the bend-over (BOPT) and swayed to the back (initial) position. Results In the first group (n?=?10) during BOPT, sas-TQ and pulse pressure (PP) decreased (?17.6% and ?17.9%, respectively) and CBFV increased (+35.0%), while cc-TQ did not change (+1.91%). In the second group, in the initial position (n?=?22) cc-TQ and CBFV increased (106.6% and 20.1%, respectively), while sas-TQ and PP decreases were not statistically significant (?15.5% and ?9.0%, respectively). End-tidal CO2 remained stable during BOPT and venous compression in both groups. Significant interdependence between changes in cc-TQ and PP after bilateral jugular vein compression in the initial position was found (r?=??0.74). Conclusions Acute bilateral jugular venous insufficiency leads to hyperkinetic cerebral circulation characterised by augmented pial artery pulsation and CBFV and direct transmission of PP into the brain microcirculation. The Windkessel effect with impaired jugular outflow and more likely increased intracranial pressure is described. This study clarifies the potential mechanism linking jugular outflow insufficiency with arterial small vessel cerebral disease.

Haemodynamic changes in cerebral circulation are associated with the natural ageing process and associated pathology, leading to the development of incapacitating neurological and neurovascular diseases. Due to inherent biological limitations, current literatures mostly aimed at studying the correlation descriptively or quantifying the relationship in vitro or using computational models. In this paper, a model of a carotid-jugular fistula in the rat was used to create a haemodynamic insult to the intracranial arterial circulation and subsequent venous drainage. An arterial-venous (AV) fistula was created in 12 rats, 6 of which are normotensive Wistar-Kyoto strain (WKY) and the rest spontaneously hypertensive strain (SHR) with an additional 6 in each strains designed as controls without previous surgery. After 4 weeks of convalescence, all 24 rats were euthanised and their cerebral circulation was examined histomorphologically. We confirmed an intrinsic morphological difference between normotensive WKY and hypertensive SHR and found a modest but significant arterial shrinkage in both strains induced with AV fistula. We also reported that alterations in blood flow are also associated with marked extracellular matrix changes. We concluded that the model was suitable for studying the relative contributions of altering haemodynamic patterns and venous drainage on cerebrovascular changes. We also found that hypertension modulated cerebral vascular changes in addition to disrupted blood flow. PMID:24647348

Long-term outcome following trans-jugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt for variceal bleeding due to portal hypertension  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Objective: To study the 6-year outcome following trans-jugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPSS) for variceal bleeding due to portal hypertension. Methods: 65 patients, 51 males, 14 females, aged 35-72 years old with averaged 4.5 years, have been undergone TIPSS because of portal hypertension due to cirrhosis or Budd-Chiari syndrome. The portal pressures were measured before and after TIPSS. Follow-up study was done by color Doppler sonography or Barium esophageal radiography for 3 months to 6 years (averaged 18 months). Repeated interventional treatments were done in cases of restenosis of the shunts. Results: There were 0, 2, 10, 5, 0 cases of recurrent bleeding after 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 year and 3-6 year following TIPSS respectively. Stenosis occurred in shunt paths due to thrombosis or smooth muscle cell proliferation or neo-intimal hyperplasia were relieved after thrombolytic therapy and repeated balloon angioplasty or stent plant among most of them. 2 were failed due to serious stenosis. 7 cases died, 2 of massive bleeding, 1 of the other cause and 4 of hepatic cancer. The other patients are getting well. Conclusions: Although there were very high rates of restenosis (34%), but most of them could be treated again with interventional therapy, and in kept patency effectively. TIPSS is a still practical valuable management for massive gastric bleeding

Thrombosis of the internal jugular vein after tympanoplasty caused by interaction of oral contraceptives and hereditary hypofibrinolysis  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This case report describes a case of venous thrombosis in a young woman who had undergonetympanoplasty due to chronic otitis media.Other than that she was healthy. According to the anamnesis she stopped taking oral contraceptive pills (OCP a month before the surgery. She did not receive thromboprophylaxis before the surgerybecause it was estimated that there was a low risk for a thromboembolic incident. Several hours after the surgery she was still not responding properly to external stimulus and there was noverbal contact. An urgent computed tomography (CT scan of head and neck revealed thrombosis of the left internal jugular vein. She was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU and heparin therapy started. After a few days she was fully recovered. Later it was confirmed that the patient had an inherited fibrinolysis disorder caused by plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1 gene polymorphism. Our opinion is that the unexpected thrombotic incident was a result of interaction of multiple factors, including the venous stasis at the surgery site, decreased fibrinolysis ability, and the prothrombotic effect of OCP.

Intraoperative radiation of canine carotid artery, internal jugular vein, and vagus nerve. Therapeutic applications in the management of advanced head and neck cancers  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

As a step in the application of intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) for treating advanced head and neck cancers, preliminary information was obtained on the radiation tolerance of the canine common carotid artery, internal jugular vein, and vagus nerve to a single, high-dose electron beam. Both sides of the neck of eight mongrel dogs were operated on to expose an 8-cm segment of common carotid artery, internal jugular vein, and vagus nerve. One side of the neck was irradiated, using escalating doses of 2500, 3500, 4500, and 5500 cGy. The contralateral side of the neck served as the unirradiated control. At 3 and 6 months after IORT, one dog at each dose level was killed. None of the dogs developed carotid bleeding at any time after IORT. Light microscopic investigations using hematoxylin-eosin staining on the common carotid artery and internal jugular vein showed no consistent changes that suggested radiation damage; however, the Masson trichrome stain and hydroxyproline concentration of irradiated common carotid artery indicated an increase in the collagen content of the tunica media. Marked changes in the irradiated vagus nerve were seen, indicating severe demyelination and loss of nerve fibers, which appeared to be radiation-dose dependent. Four patients with advanced recurrent head and neck cancer were treated with surgical resection and IORT without any acute or subacute complications. The role of IORT as a supplement to surgery, external beam irradiation, and chemotherapy in selected patients with advanced head and neck cancer needs further exploration.

Paleocanais na plataforma continental interna do Rio Grande do Sul: evidências de uma drenagem fluvial pretérita  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Estruturas subsuperficiais da plataforma continental interna do Rio Grande do Sul (RS), no sul do Brasil, registradas através do sistema acústico Sparker®, foram interpretadas como paleocanais, que se desenvolveram sobre um ambiente de planície costeira, anterior à transgressão ocorrida no final do [...] Pleistoceno e início do Holoceno. Dois refletores principais, com expressiva continuidade lateral, foram identificados. O primeiro refletor, mais raso, situa-se entre 10m e 12m em subsuperfície e se caracteriza como uma superfície bastante homogênea, com algumas irregularidades localizadas, de dimensões reduzidas, próximas a feições acanaladas. O segundo refletor, localizado a profundidades que variam entre 14m e 32m, em relação ao fundo marinho, é mais descontínuo e sua superfície mais irregular, com a presença de estruturas erosivas. A análise conjunta dos perfis indica que esta drenagem pretérita apresenta uma orientação N/NE-SE/SO, reduzindo sua profundidade e aumentando sua largura em direção ao mar aberto. A presença de paleocanais na plataforma interna do Rio Grande do Sul reforça os modelos de evolução paleogeográfica da área, conforme propõe os estudos realizados anteriormente. Abstract in english Subsurface structures mapped by the Sparker® acoustic system on the inner continental shelf of Rio Grande do Sul State, in southern Brazil were interpreted as paleochannels which developed over a coastal plain environment during the upper Pleistocene and lower Holocene. Two major reflectors displayi [...] ng expressive lateral continuity were identified. The first reflector, which is shallower, is buried at depths ranging from 10 to 12m and its surface is relatively homogeneous displaying few irregularities associated that channeled structures. The second reflector mapped on depths ranging from 14 a 32m is more discontinuous and irregular and display erosive structures. The overall interpretation of the shallow seismic reflection profiles indicates that this preterit drainage display an N/NE-SE/SW orientation increasing its width and decreasing its depth towards offshore. The presence of paleochannels in the inner continental shelf of RS state supports the paleogeographic models of the area proposed by early studies.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: O objetivo do estudo foi verificar a freqüência de sucesso e de complicações da punção percutânea da veia subclávia em crianças e adolescentes e identificar os fatores associados. MÉTODOS: Estudou-se uma série de 204 punções percutâneas da veia subclávia, utilizando cateter de cloreto de p [...] olivinil (Intracath®) em crianças e adolescentes no Instituto Materno-Infantil Professor Fernando Figueira no período de 01/12/2003 a 30/04/2004. Foram analisadas variáveis relacionadas ao paciente, como idade, e relacionadas ao procedimento, como sucesso, tipo de anestesia, complicações, quem realizou e número de tentativas de punção. RESULTADOS: Houve sucesso em 89,2% das punções. O percentual de sucesso foi significantemente maior nas punções realizadas com a criança sob narcose (94%). Cerca de 43,2% das punções evoluíram com complicações relacionadas à inserção do cateter; no entanto, complicações de maior gravidade ocorreram em apenas 3,5% dos casos. Houve um maior número de complicações nas punções realizadas pelo residente do primeiro ano (58,8%), sendo que este realizou um percentual de procedimentos significativamente maior em crianças menores de 1 ano e com a realização de um maior número de tentativas no mesmo paciente. CONCLUSÕES: A realização do procedimento com o paciente sob narcose mostrou aumentar a chance de sucesso. Há maior chance de complicações relacionadas à inserção do cateter em punções de veia subclávia realizadas por médicos menos experientes, sendo prudente selecionar as punções em situações de maior risco para cirurgiões com maior experiência no procedimento. Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to investigate the rates of success and of complications of percutaneous subclavian central venous catheterization in children and adolescents and to identify factors associated with them. METHODS: This was a study of a series of 204 percutaneous subclavian [...] central venous catheterizations of children and adolescents, using polyvinyl chloride catheters (Intracath®), at the Instituto Materno-Infantil Professor Fernando Figueira between December 1, 2003 and April 30, 2004. An analysis was performed of variables related to the patient, such as age, and of variables related to the procedure such as success/failure, type of anesthesia, complications, who performed the procedure and the number of attempts needed. RESULTS: Overall, 89.2% of catheterizations were successful. Percentage success rates were significantly greater when percutaneous subclavian central venous catheterization was performed with the child sedated (94%). Around 43.2% of subclavian catheterizations progressed with complications related to insertion of the catheter; however, complications of greater severity were observed in just 3.5% of cases. There were a greater number of complications related to percutaneous subclavian central venous catheterizations performed by a first-year resident (58.8%), who performed a significantly greater percentage of procedures on children younger than 1 year and who also made a greater number of attempts per patient. CONCLUSIONS: The chance of success was greater when patients were sedated for catheterization. There was a greater chance of complications related to insertion of the catheter when percutaneous subclavian central venous catheterization was performed by less experienced physicians, and it would be prudent to designate those central venous catheterizations that present greater risk to surgeons with greater experience in the experience.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: Avaliar os dados relativos à utilização de filtro de veia cava na Divisão de Trauma do Centro Médico da UCSD San Diego, CA/EUA. MÉTODOS: Estudo descritivo realizado na Divisão de Trauma visando avaliar a experiência acumulada e a conduta terapêutica nos doentes atendidos pela equipe da Div [...] isão de Trauma e submetidos à colocação de filtro de veia cava como método de prevenção ou tratamento do TEP no período de janeiro de 1999 a dezembro de 2008. RESULTADOS: O estudo compreendeu 512 doentes, destacando-se o sexo masculino (73%). Quanto à causa do traumatismo predominou o acidente automobilístico, seguido por lesões provocadas por quedas. A relação homem/mulher foi 3:1. A faixa etária mais atingida foi 21 a 40 anos, representando 36% dos doentes. O percentual de filtros de cava profiláticos foi de 82% contra 18% de filtros terapêuticos. O traumatismo craniano foi a principal causa para indicação de filtros profiláticos seguido dos traumas raquimedulares. O índice de TVP pós-filtro foi 11%. CONCLUSÃO: Na presença de contraindicação ao uso de anticoagulantes em doentes vítimas de trauma grave, os filtros de veia cava inferior demonstraram ser uma opção efetiva e segura. Entretanto, deve-se aplicar rigor ao julgamento clínico para todas as indicações, mesmo após o advento de filtros "recuperáveis". Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the data on the use of vena cava filter in the Division of Trauma, UCSD Medical Center - San Diego, CA / USA. METHODS: A descriptive study was conducted at the Division of Trauma to evaluate the cumulated experience and the therapeutic approach in patients attended by the staf [...] f of the Division of Trauma and submitted to placement of a vena cava filter as a method of prevention or treatment of Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PTE) from January 1999 to December 2008. RESULTS: The study comprised 512 patients, mostly males (73%). As to the cause, automobile accident injuries predominated, followed by injuries caused by falls. The male / female ratio was 3:1. The most affected age group was the one between 21 to 40 years, representing 36% of patients. The percentage of prophylactic vena cava filters was 82%, whilst 18% had treatment purposes. Head trauma was the main cause for the indication of prophylactic filters followed by spinal cord trauma. The rate of pos-filter deep vein thrombosis (DVT) was 11%. CONCLUSION: In the presence of contraindications to the use of anticoagulants in patients who suffered severe trauma, the inferior vena cava filters have proven to be an effective and safe optio n. However, one should apply rigorous clinical judgment to all indications, even after the advent of retrievable filters.

Experiência preliminar com novo filtro de veia cava: resultados de 15 implantes Preliminary experience with a new vena cava filter: results of 15 implantations  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Este estudo apresenta resultados preliminares obtidos com um novo filtro permanente de veia cava, baseado no desenho de Greenfield, com três hastes prolongadas de um total de seis, para dar estabilidade central ao filtro na luz da veia cava. Neste artigo, relatamos sua avaliação clínica preliminar quanto à aplicabilidade, eficácia e segurança. De agosto de 2004 a dezembro de 2006, 15 filtros foram implantados em nove homens e seis mulheres, com idades variando de 38 a 79 anos (média de 57,8 anos. O acesso foi feito sempre por via transjugular. As indicações foram: trombose venosa proximal, com contra-indicação de anticoagulação em 12 pacientes; complicações hemorrágicas com anticoagulação em dois pacientes; e embolia pulmonar, apesar de anticoagulação adequada, em um paciente. Os filtros foram avaliados quanto à liberação, inclinação, mau posicionamento e perfuração de cava. No seguimento, avaliou-se trombose no local de acesso, tromboembolismo venoso recorrente, migração do filtro e trombose de cava pelo ultra-som. Nenhum paciente recebeu anticoagulantes no seguimento. O filtro foi liberado com sucesso em todos os casos sem mau posicionamento, inclinação, perfuração ou trombose de acesso. Os pacientes foram seguidos entre 3 e 23 meses (média de 11 meses. Nenhum paciente teve recorrência de tromboembolismo venoso. Não houve casos de trombose de veia cava ou migração do filtro. Óbito ocorreu em sete casos, todos relacionados com a moléstia de base. Os resultados preliminares indicam potencial eficácia e segurança do uso do novo filtro no período estudado.This study presents preliminary results obtained from a new permanent filter, based on Greenfield's filter design, with prolongations on three of six struts to stabilize it centrally in the vena caval lumen. The preliminary clinical evaluation of the filter with regard to feasibility, efficacy and safety is reported. From August 2004 to December 2006, 15 vena cava filters were deployed in nine men and six women, who ranged in age from 38 to 79 years (mean, 57.8 years. The approach used was always transjugular. Indications for filter placement were proximal deep venous thrombosis with a contraindication to anticoagulation in 12 patients; hemorrhagic complications with anticoagulation in two patients; and pulmonary embolism, despite adequate anticoagulation in one patient. New vena cava filters were evaluated for releasing, tilting, malpositioning and caval perforation. Follow-up included assessment of access site thrombosis and filter migration, recurrent venous thromboembolism, and caval thrombosis by duplex ultrasound. No patient received anticoagulants in the follow-up. In all patients the filter was successfully released, with no malpositioning, tilting, perforation or access thrombosis. The patients were followed for 3 to 23 months (mean = 11 months. No patient developed recurrent venous thromboembolism. No other patients developed inferior vena cava thrombosis or filter migration. Death occurred in seven patients, all related to baseline illness. This preliminary study suggests good feasibility and safety of the new filter up to the observation period.

Por meio da USD abdominal, foram detectados, no período de março de 2004 [...] a março de 2007, casos de DPS em 20 cães, os quais foram confirmados pela cirurgia ou necropsia. Os principais achados ultrassonográficos foram: 1) identificação de um vaso tortuoso, desviando o fluxo portal, sendo: desvio portocaval (16/20 ou 80%), desvio esplenocaval (2/20 ou 10%), desvio gastrocaval (1/20 ou 5%), desvio portoázigos (1/20 ou 5%); 2) velocidade de fluxo portal elevada antes do desvio (17/20 ou 81%); 3) velocidade de fluxo portal diminuída após o desvio (17/20 ou 81%); 4) fluxo turbulento na veia cava caudal (10/20 ou 47,5%); e 5) fígado de tamanho diminuído (15/20 ou 71%). Os outros achados ultrassonográficos associados com dados clínicos foram semelhantes aos descritos na literatura.

Main ultrasonographic findings were: identification of a tortuous vessel shunting portal flow being: portocaval shunt (16/20 or 80%), esplenocaval shunt (2/20 or 10%), gastrocaval shunt (1/20 or 5%), portoazigo shunt (1/20 or 5%); 2) elevated portal flow velocity before shunt (17/20 or 81%), 3) lower portal flow velocity after shunt (17/20 or 81%), 4) turbulence in the caudal vena cava (10/20 or 47,5%) and 5) reduced liver size (15/20 or 71%). The others ultrasonographic findings associated with clinical records were similar to that described in literature. With this work we could conclude that hemodynamic assessment of portal vein with DUS may be a useful tool for PSS diagnosis and to detect the shunted vessel origin.

Prevalência de hipertensão arterial em pacientes com oclusão do ramo da veia central da retina Prevalence of arterial hypertension in branch retinal vein occlusion patients  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available OBJETIVOS: Identificar em pacientes com oclusão do ramo da veia central da retina utilizando a monitorização ambulatorial da pressão arterial e medidas clínicas da pressão arterial: prevalência de hipertensão e o perfil noturno da pressão arterial. MÉTODOS: Prospectivamente, 93 olhos de 83 pacientes com oclusão do ramo da veia central da retina foram submetidos à avaliação oftalmológica. Após, os pacientes foram encaminhados para avaliação clínica e monitorização da pressão arterial. Pacientes sem descenso da pressão durante o sono ("non-dipper" foram definidos como um declínio na pressão arterial sistólica PURPOSE: To identify in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion using ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and clinical blood pressure measures: hypertension prevalence, and nocturnal profile of blood pressure. METHODS: Prospectively, 93 eyes of 83 patients with branch retinal vein occlusion were submitted to ophthalmological examination. Afterwards the patients were submitted to clinical evaluation and blood pressure monitoring. Non-dipper was defined as a fall in systolic blood pressure < 10%, and dipper when this value was higher. RESULTS: Disease affected one eye in 73 (88% patients. The temporal superior branch was the site of occlusion in 61 (65.6% eyes, while in the others the infero-temporal branch was affected. Seventy six (92% patients were diagnosed as hypertensive after clinical evaluation. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring identified 76 hipertensives, 5 normotensives, 1 white-coat hypertensive and one masked hypertensive subjects. The two latter were excluded from the analysis. Of the 81 analyzed patients, forty (49% were dippers and 41 (51% were non-dippers. Among the HT (n=76, 36 (47% were dippers and 40 (53% were non-dippers. CONCLUSION: Prevalence of hypertension in our series was extremely high (92% which suggests that physiopathology of the disease has a close relationship with changes promoted by hypertension. A little more than half of the hypertensives were non-dippers (n=40; 52,6%. These evidences suggest that a 24-hour sustained level of blood pressure may be an additional risk factor for branch retinal vein occlusion.

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese RACIONAL: Insuficiência hepática pós-operatória devido a remanescente hepático pequeno tem sido complicação temida em pacientes que são submetidos à ressecção hepática extensa. A associação da transecção hepática e ligadura da veia porta para hepatectomia estagiada (ALPPS) é uma nova abordagem para [...] pacientes em que o tumor é previamente considerado irressecável. OBJETIVO: Apresentar a técnica ALPPS como procedimento novo de hepatectomia em dois estágios com ligadura da veia porta e transecção hepática mantendo o fígado in situ para o tratamento de pacientes com tumores primários ou metastáticos marginalmente ressecáveis. TÉCNICA: O procedimento é realizado em dois tempos. O primeiro consiste na ligadura do ramo direito da veia porta. Em seguida é realizada a transecção total ou quase total do parênquima hepático acompanhando o ligamento falciforme, incluindo a veia hepática média. Um saco plástico é utilizado para recobrir o fígado que será retirado; o abdome é drenado e realizada a síntese da parede por planos. O segundo tempo é feito após seis a 12 dias de intervalo com realização de tomografia computadorizada de abdome. Na laparotomia o saco plástico é removido. Os ramos direito da artéria hepática, ducto hepático e veia hepática são ligados e o lobo hepático direito é removido. Um dreno é posicionado na superfície de ressecção e a síntese da parede abdominal é realizada. CONCLUSÃO: ALPPS permite ressecção curativa de lesões hepáticas em pacientes com doença considerada previamente irressecável. Abstract in english BACKGROUND: Postoperative liver failure consequent to insufficiency of remnant liver is a feared complication in patients who underwent extensive liver resections. The associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a new approach for patient which tumor is pre [...] viously considered unresectable. AIM: To present ALPPS as an innovative surgical technique of two-staged hepatectomy for the treatment of patients with marginally resectable or initially nonresectable primary and metastatic liver tumors. TECHNIQUE: The procedure is performed in two steps. The first consists on ligation of the right portal vein branch. Subsequently, total or nearly total parenchyma dissection along the falciform ligament is performed, including the middle hepatic vein. A plastic bag is used to cover the right extended lobe, and the abdomen is drained and closed. The second one is performed after a computer tomography, six to 12 days interval. After laparotomy, the plastic bag is removed. The right artery, right bile duct and the right hepatic vein are divided. The extended right lobe is removed. Drain is placed at the resection surface, and the abdomen is closed. CONCLUSION: The associating of liver partition and portal vein ligation can enable curative resection of liver metastasis in patients with lesions previously considered unresectable.

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese OBJETIVO: Analisar a eficácia do isolamento cirúrgico das veias pulmonares para restabelecer ritmo sinusal em pacientes com fibrilação atrial secundária à doença mitral. MÉTODOS: 33 pacientes com indicação de correção cirúrgica da valva mitral e com fibrilação atrial permanente, foram submetidos ao [...] isolamento cirúrgico das veias pulmonares, sendo 67% mulheres. Média de idade de 56,3±10 anos, classe funcional NYHA pré-operatória de 3,2±0,6, tamanho de átrio esquerdo de 5,5± 0,9 cm, fração de ejeção de 61,3±13%. A técnica cirúrgica consistiu de incisão circunferencial ao redor das 4 veias pulmonares, excisão do apêndice atrial esquerdo e de incisão perpendicular desde a borda inferior da incisão, isolando as veias pulmonares, até o ânulo da valva mitral. Arritmias precoces foram tratadas, agressivamente, com cardioversão. RESULTADOS: O seguimento médio foi de 23,9±17 meses e ocorreram 3 óbitos no pós-operatório. Dez pacientes necessitaram de cardioversão elétrica no pós-operatório; 87% apresentavam ritmo sinusal na última consulta e 33% estavam em uso de amiodarona. CONCLUSÃO: Isolamento das veias pulmonares associado à cirurgia da valva mitral é uma técnica efetiva e segura na manutenção de ritmo sinusal em pacientes com fribilação atrial permanente. Abstract in english OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of surgical isolation of the pulmonary veins for re-establishing sinus rhythm in patients with atrial fibrillation secondary to mitral valve disease. METHODS: Thirty-three (67% were women) patients with permanent atrial fibrillation and indication for surgical corre [...] ction of the mitral valve underwent surgical isolation of the pulmonary veins. Their mean age was 56.3±10 years, preoperative NYHA functional class was 3.2±0.6, left atrial size was 5.5±0.9 cm, and ejection fraction was 61.3±13%. The surgical technique consisted of a circumferential incision surrounding the 4 pulmonary veins, excision of the left atrial appendage, and a perpendicular incision originating in the inferior margin of the circumferential incision isolating the pulmonary veins down to the mitral valve. Early arrhythmias were aggressively treated with cardioversion. RESULTS: The mean follow-up was 23.9±17 months, and 3 patients died in the postoperative period. Ten patients required electrical cardioversion in the postoperative period; 87% had sinus rhythm in the last medical visit, and 33% were using amiodarone. CONCLUSION: Isolation of the pulmonary veins associated with mitral valve surgery is an effective and safe technique for maintaining sinus rhythm in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation.

Evaluación del funcionamiento de motores de combustión interna trabajando con biodiesel.  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available En el presente trabajo se determinó la característica exterior de velocidad para dos motores de combustión interna trabajando con combustible biodiesel procedente de varias fuentes naturales y se comparó con la característica exterior de velocidad de los motores originalmente trabajando con combustible diesel. Los motores fueron evaluados con variaciones de carga y velocidad. En uno de los motores ensayados fue determinada la presión en el interior de la cámara de combustión con el objetivo de evaluar el retardo de ignición. Fue observado que los motores trabajando con combustible biodiesel presentaban una disminución de la potencia efectiva y un aumento del consumo especifico de combustible. Se observó una disminución del retardo de ignición cuando fue empleado el combustible biodiesel. También fue observado que los gases contaminantes, excepto las emisiones de NOx y CO, disminuyen o permanecen constantes con el uso del biocombustible. The engine outer velocity characterization for two engines was made working with biodiesel from different natural sources, and its performance was compared with the engine parameters using reference diesel. The engines were used varying load and velocity. The ignition delay was obtained by measurement of in-cylinder pressure. A decrease in the effective power and increase in the effective fuel consumption were observed in the engines when biodiesel is used. Biodiesel samples shown shorter ignition delay than diesel. The pollutants emitted for the engine using biodiesel was lower than diesel, with the exception of NOx and CO emissions.

Globus pallidus interna deep brain stimulation for tardive dyskinesia: case report and review of the literature.  

Science.gov (United States)

Tardive dyskinesia (TD) can be a disabling condition and is frequently refractory to medical therapy. Over the past decade there have been many reports of TD patients experiencing significant benefit with deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus interna (GPi). The growing literature on this treatment option for TD consists predominantly of case reports and series. The reported benefit ranges widely, but the majority of cases experienced at least a 50% improvement in symptoms. The anatomical distribution of dyskinesias has not clearly influenced outcome, though fixed postures appear less likely to improve than phasic movements. Onset of benefit can be immediate or take months, and benefit is sustained in most cases, for at least 6 months and up to several years. A wide variety of voltages, frequencies, and pulse widths have demonstrated efficacy. A small number of reports which examined psychiatric symptoms before and after surgery did not find any decline, and in some cases revealed improvement in mood. However, these overall positive results should be interpreted with caution, as the majority of reports lacked blinded assessments, control groups, or standardized therapy parameters. Finally, we present an illustrative case of refractory tardive dyskinesia treated with GPi-DBS with 5 years of follow-up and 4 accompanying video segments. PMID:23099106

Relações entre responsabilidade social interna e comprometimento organizacional: um estudo em empresas prestadoras de serviços  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Empresas do setor de serviços têm buscado se modernizar. Neste esforço, a responsabilidade social empresarial (RSE constitui diferencial competitivo, por afetar múltiplos stakeholders, inclusive os colaboradores, em termos de engajamento. Nesta pesquisa, busca-se investigar as relações entre práticas de RSE interna e o comprometimento organizacional em duas empresas de serviços agraciadas com o Prêmio Delmiro Gouveia, na categoria melhores empresas em desempenho social. Como parâmetro para as práticas de responsabilidade social, utilizou-se o tema “público interno” dos Indicadores Ethos (2012. Em relação ao comprometimento organizacional, foram consideradas as dimensões afetiva, normativa e instrumental de Allen e Meyer (1990. Trata-se de uma pesquisa descritiva, de natureza quantitativa, realizada mediante um survey. A análise foi efetuada mediante uma análise de variância (ANOVA, teste de correlação e comparação entre as empresas, utilizando-se o programa Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS. Os resultados apontam que as práticas de diálogo e participação são as que ostentam o maior nível de influência no comprometimento, já que foram as que apresentaram o maior número de correlações significativas, além de serem as únicas com correlações significativas em todas as dimensões do comprometimento. Em seguida, surgem as práticas de trabalho decente, com correlações significativas em apenas duas dimensões, afetiva e normativa. Com menor poder de influência na geração do comprometimento, aparecem às práticas de respeito ao indivíduo, uma vez que apresentaram o menor número de correlações significativas. A relação mais consistente foi estabelecida entre o subtema diálogo e participação e a dimensão afetiva.

É uma causa importante da hipertensão porta na faixa etária pediátrica, com taxas elevadas de morbidade devido a sua principal complicação - a hemorragia digestiv [...] a alta. OBJETIVO: Descrever o grupo de crianças e adolescentes com trombose de veia porta sem doença hepática associada do Ambulatório de Hepatologia Pediátrica do Hospital das Clínicas da UFMG, Belo Horizonte, MG, Brasil, com ênfase no diagnóstico, forma de apresentação, complicações clínicas e na abordagem da hipertensão porta. MÉTODOS: Trata-se de estudo descritivo de uma série de casos de crianças e adolescentes atendidos de janeiro de 1990 a dezembro de 2010. O diagnóstico de trombose de veia porta foi estabelecido por ultrassonografia. RESULTADOS: Dos 55 pacientes analisados, 30 (54,5%) eram do gênero masculino. Em 29 pacientes (52,7%) não foi identificado nenhum fator de risco para trombose de veia porta. A forma de apresentação predominante foi hemorragia digestiva alta (52,7%). Em 20 pacientes (36,4%), a manifestação inicial foi esplenomegalia. Durante todo o período de seguimento, 39 pacientes (70,9%) apresentaram, pelo menos, um episódio de hemorragia digestiva alta. A média de idade dos pacientes neste primeiro episódio foi de 4,6 ± 3,4 anos. O exame endoscópico, seja realizado na urgência ou eletivamente para pesquisa de varizes esofágicas, mostrou sua presença em 84,9% dos pacientes avaliados. O tratamento endoscópico profilático foi realizado com ligadura elástica de varizes em 31,3% dos pacientes. Apenas um evoluiu para óbito devido a sangramento refratário. CONCLUSÕES: A trombose de veia porta é uma das causas mais importantes de hemorragia digestiva alta em crianças. Deve-se suspeitar de trombose de veia porta em toda criança com esplenomegalia afebril e/ou hematêmese, sem hepatomegalia e com testes de função hepática normais. Desta forma, uma abordagem diagnóstica e terapêutica adequada é desejável na tentativa de reduzir a morbimortalidade.

Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Estudar a importância clínica da determinação eletrofisiológica da presença de bloqueio bidirecional na condução pelo istmo localizado entre a veia cava inferior e o anel da valva tricúspide (VCI - AT, após a ablação do flutter atrial tipo I (FL com radiofreqüência (RF. MÉTODOS: Quarenta pacientes consecutivos (idade média 51±11 anos com FL foram submetidos a ablação do istmo VCI-AT com RF. Em 30 pacientes (GI, o sucesso foi avaliado pela interrupção e não reindução do FL com estimulação atrial programada. Nos últimos 10 pacientes foi avaliada também a condução bidirecional pelo istmo, com cateteres posicionados na sua entrada e saída e em cada lado da linha de bloqueio. O bloqueio foi considerado bidirecional quando ocorrido nos dois sentidos e unidirecional quando ocorrido em um só sentido. RESULTADOS: Vinte e seis (86% pacientes do GI e 10 (100% do GII tiveram sucesso imediato (p= 0,5558. Durante o seguimento, 7 (30% de 23 pacientes do GI e 3 (30% de 9 do GII tiveram recorrência de FL (p= NS. Os três pacientes do GII que apresentaram recorrência tinham bloqueio unidirecional, enquanto os seis casos sem recorrência tinham bloqueio bidirecional (p=0,012. CONCLUSÃO: A demonstração de bloqueio bidirecional no istmo VCI-AT, obtida imediatamente após a ablação do FL com RF, relaciona-se a menor índice de recorrência clínica, devendo ser o critério preferencial para término do procedimento.

Jugular venous reflux and plasma endothelin-1 are associated with cough syncope: a case control pilot study  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background Jugular venous reflux (JVR has been reported to cause cough syncope via retrograde-transmitted venous hypertension and consequently decreased cerebral blood flow (CBF. Unmatched frequencies of JVR and cough syncope led us to postulate that there should be additional factors combined with JVR to exaggerate CBF decrement during cough, leading to syncope. The present pilot study tested the hypothesis that JVR, in addition to an increased level of plasma endothelin-1 (ET-1, a potent vasoconstrictor, is involved in the pathophysiology of cough syncope. Methods Seventeen patients with cough syncope or pre-syncope (Mean[SD] = 74.63(12.37 years; 15 males and 51 age/gender-matched controls received color-coded duplex ultrasonography for JVR determination and plasma ET-1 level measurements. Results Multivariate logistic analysis showed that the presence of both-side JVR (odds ratio [OR] = 10.77, 95% confident interval [CI] = 2.40-48.35, p = 0.0019 and plasma ET-1 > 3.43 pg/ml (OR = 14.57, 95% CI = 2.95-71.59, p = 0.001 were independently associated with the presence of cough syncope/ pre-syncope respectively. There was less incidence of cough syncope/ pre-syncope in subjects with the absence of both-side JVR and a plasma ET-1 ?3.43 pg/ml. Presence of both side JVR and plasma ET-1 level of > 3.43 pg/ml, increased risk for cough syncope/pre-syncope (p Conclusions JVR and higher plasma levels of ET-1 are associated with cough syncope/ pre-syncope. Although sample size of this study was small, we showed a synergistic effect between JVR and plasma ET-1 levels on the occurrence of cough syncope/pre-syncope. Future studies should confirm our pilot findings.

Reflux venous flow in dural sinus and internal jugular vein on 3D time-of-flight MR angiography  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Reflux venous signal on the brain and neck time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (TOF MRA) is thought to be related to a compressed left brachiocephalic vein. This study is aimed to assess the prevalence of venous reflux flow in internal jugular vein (IJV), sigmoid sinus/transverse sinus (SS/TS), and inferior petrosal sinus (IPS) on the brain and neck TOF MRA and its pattern. From the radiology database, 3,475 patients (1,526 men, 1,949 women, age range 19-94, median age 62 years) with brain and neck standard 3D TOF MRA at 3 T and 1.5 T were identified. Rotational maximal intensity projection images of 3D TOF MRA were assessed for the presence of reflux flow in IJV, IPS, and SS/TS. Fifty-five patients (1.6 %) had reflux flow, all in the left side. It was more prevalent in females (n = 43/1,949, 2.2 %) than in males (n = 12/1,526, 0.8 %) (p = 0.001). The mean age of patients with reflux flow (66 years old) was older than those (60 years old) without reflux flow (p = 0.001). Three patients had arteriovenous shunt in the left arm for hemodialysis. Of the remaining 52 patients, reflux was seen on IJV in 35 patients (67.3 %). There were more patients with reflux flow seen on SS/TS (n = 34) than on IPS (n = 25). Venous reflux flow on TOF MRA is infrequently observed, and reflux pattern is variable. Because it is exclusively located in the left side, the reflux signal on TOF MRA could be an alarm for an undesirable candidate for a contrast injection on the left side for contrast-enhanced imaging study.
