Comment on Nov 09, 2018

Luis Izquierdo Lamoca commented on presentation Recanalization techniques of chronic iliofemoral vein occlusions.

»This is a young woman who suffered a postpartum iliofemoral DVT and a failed lytic therapy attempt in another center. The cause was probably an underlying May-Thurner compression with a negative thrombophilia workup. As there were more than two venous segments affected we kept him in oral anticoagulation for 12 months and after long life aspirin In my practice I use these regimes: - NIVL: Bemiparine 3500 UI / SC at 6 and 24 hours after the procedure followed by aspirin 100 mg PO / 24 hours for 12 months. - CHRONIC DVT: Lesions involving ≤ 2 venous segments: Bemiparine 3500 UI / SC at 6 and 24 hours after the procedure followed by aspirin 100 mg PO a day for 12 months. Lesions involving ≥ 3 segments, thrombophilia, previous anticoagulant treatment and poor venous inflow: Bemiparin at weight-adjusted therapeutic dose / 24 hours SC for 15 days followed by oral anticoagulation for at least 12 months. - ACUTE DVT: Bemiparin at weight-adjusted therapeutic dose / 24 hours SC for 15 days followed by oral anticoagulation for at least 12 months.«

Choice of antiplatelet therapy around complex revascularisation

A 79-year-old diabetic male patient with no history of coronary disease is referred to you to undergo angioplasty for tissue loss on the tips of the hallux and second toe. He is taking Aspirin 75mg. From preoperative imaging he needs a 20cm SFA occlusion stopping before the adductor hiatus recanalizing as well as multilevel tibial disease which appears to be a combination of short occlusions and stenoses. The dorsal pedal is seen in the foot and is in continuity with the arch. The PT artery appears occluded through it’s whole length.
