A total 30,040 pregnancies were reviewed at one institution over 5 years to determine the incidence of venous thrombotic complications. Thirty-one patients experienced such complications related to pregnancy (incidence 0.1%); 13 had deep venous thrombosis and 14 had superficial venous thrombophlebitis diagnosed by duplex ultrasound. Four had pelvic vein(More)
The incidence of axillary-subclavian venous thrombosis continues to rise, while reports of noninvasive methods to diagnose this condition have been sparse. A review of the records of 693 consecutive upper extremity duplex scans was performed, and a diagnosis of acute venous thrombosis was made in 123 of these patients. Of these, 85 involved the axillary or(More)
Seventy-five patients with isolated calf vein thrombi were prospectively monitored with sequential duplex scans at 3- to 4-day intervals. Twenty-four patients (32%) propagated and 11 of these 24 (46%) into the popliteal or larger veins of the thigh. Sex, age, obesity, trauma, estrogen use, malignancy, varicose veins, smoking, surgery, and activity level(More)
During the past 20 years, 163 patients had 194 operations for obliterative arterial disease of the upper extremity. Of these, 68 had neurological symptoms primarily that were associated with arterial obstruction of the first portion of the subclavian artery. The remaining 95 patients had ischemic symptoms of the upper extremity, namely, intermittent(More)
We studied 1,044 patients by using real-time B-mode ultrasonic carotid imaging (BioSound), oculoplethysmography and carotid phonoangiography (OPG/CPA), and periorbital Doppler ultrasonography. One hundred and fifty of these patients underwent bilateral carotid arteriography; they form the basis of this study. The x-ray films were compared to the scans and(More)
AIM To identify changes in growth factor expression in miniature pig retinas following retinal laser photocoagulation. METHODS Pigs were sacrificed at different times (15 minutes to 42 days) post-laser and the retinas were immunolabelled for basic fibroblast growth factor, insulin-like growth factor I, transforming growth factor beta, epidermal growth(More)
Carotid artery aneurysms are rare, however, serious complications may result--namely, rupture, thrombosis, or emboli. Five distinct clinical types of aneurysms are reported with different symptoms and treatment. Fusiform, saccular, false, and mycotic aneurysms are best treated with interposition autogenous vein grafting. Spontaneous dissection aneurysms are(More)
