BACKGROUND Oral estrogen use and elevated body mass index (BMI) increase the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Recent data suggest that transdermal estrogen might be safe with respect to thrombotic risk. However, the impact of transdermal estrogen on the association between overweight (25 kg m(-2) < BMI < or = 30 kg m(-2)) or obesity (BMI >30 kg m(-2))(More)
SUMMARY Absolute ethanol is the most effective agent in the treatment of venous malformation (VM) although it is quite risky to use because of the danger of diffusion beyond the target. To reduce this risk, we have developed an alcoholic sclerosing solution that is less diffusible. The viscosity of absolute ethanol was enhanced with monographic(More)
UNLABELLED The authors report the results of duplex ultrasound scanning investigation for the detection of deep venous thrombosis after orthopedic surgery and compare asymptomatic and symptomatic populations. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To estimate the rate of deep venous thrombosis diagnosed by duplex scanning in those 2 populations and precise their features.(More)
BACKGROUND Lifetime estrogen exposure has been related to breast cancer risk, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease but data on venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk are limited. METHODS Data from a hospital-based case-control study among 608 postmenopausal women (191 with a first episode of idiopathic VTE and 417 age-matched controls) were used to(More)
OBJECTIVES Assess the diagnostic performance of phlebography and discrepancies with duplex ultrasonography in screening for asymptomatic deep vein thrombosis after total hip arthroplasty. Search for arguments which would favor contributing false-negatives or false-positives to one of the two exploration methods. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 24(More)
Kurloff cells belong to the group of macrophages as far as ultrastructure, adhesiveness and identification with Kupffer cells (in the case of the liver) are concerned. A characteristic group of features makes it easy to recognize them: PAS reaction, cyanol-blue staining, presence of myelin figures in electron microscopy and attachment to glass-slides.(More)
OBJECTIVES Duplex ultrasonography performance in detecting embolic foci has not been proven satisfactory compared with phlebography or autopsic findings. In case of suspected pulmonary embolism, the embolic focus is only discovered in 11 to 18% of the cases compared with more than 30% with phlebography. For overt acute pulmonary embolism, the discovery rate(More)
Absolute alcohol is the most effective treatment of venous malformations. We created an alcoholic sclerosing solution less diffusible and we report a preliminary study on 6 patients. The viscosity of the alcohol was enhanced with ethylcellulose and we treated 7 patients with VM. Two benign skin ulcerations were observed and one patient with a large VM of(More)
The operator-dependent nature of venous Duplex-ultrasonography diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) of the leg is the principal reproach applied to it and a reason for delaying use. The aim of the present study was to evaluate concordance between two operators, with rigorous application of the same methodology of exploration of the venous axes. The(More)
BACKGROUND In several small studies, anticoagulant therapy reduced the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with isolated lower-limb injuries. OBJECTIVES To compare the efficacy and safety of fondaparinux 2.5 mg (1.5 mg in patients with a creatinine clearance between 30 and 50 mL min(-1) ) over nadroparin 2850 anti-factor Xa IU. (More)
