Upper-extremity deep vein thrombosis (UEDVT) accounts for about 5–10% of all cases of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is often associated with cancer and/or presence of a central venous catheter (CVC), but it may also occur in the absence of these favoring conditions. The safety and efficacy of using direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in subjects with UEDVT has not been systematically evaluated and the only data available in the literature derive from anecdotal evidence, analysis of registries, a...

Whether antithrombotic treatment is safe and/or affects the risk of intracranial bleeding in subjects with sporadic brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) is unknown. We conducted a retrospective analysis on the use of antithrombotics among patients affected by brain AVMs in follow-up at our institution. Attention was paid to the type of antithrombotic drug (either antiplatelets or anticoagulants), current or past use, dosage, and duration of treatment. Several clinical and angioarchitectural ...

Aims To ascertain whether the presence of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) influences microvascular dysfunction and LV remodelling at 6 months of follow-up. Methods and results Fifty-six consecutive STEMI patients successfully treated with primary or rescue percutaneous coronary intervention underwent conventional two-dimensional and myocardial contrast echocardiography within 24 h and at 6 months. Left ventricular mass, end-di...

Aims To study coronary microvascular dysfunction as possible pathogenetic mechanism in Apical Ballooning Syndrome (ABS). Methods and results Fifteen ABS patients (all women, 68 ± 14 years) underwent myocardial contrast echocardiography at baseline during adenosine infusion (140 µg/kg/min) and at 1-month follow-up and compared with a group of anterior ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients with similar clinical characteristics. Myocardial perfusion was assessed by contrast score inde...

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a known cause of cryptogenic stroke and, when associated with a condition of thrombophilia, its closure has been shown to reduce the recurrence of cerebral embolic events. Here we present a case of a young man, with a history of previous recurrent cerebral ischaemic episodes, that developed an inferior acute myocardial infarction (AMI) with angiographic evidence of thrombotic occlusion of the right coronary artery (RCA). Thrombus aspiration followed by balloon angio...

Apical Ballooning Syndrome (ABS) is characterized by chest pain, ST segment elevation at ECG, normal coronary arteries and transient left ventricular (LV) apical a-dyskinesia that typically recovers within a few weeks. Limited and conflicting data about microvascular flow pattern in ABS exist so far. Eight consecutive patients (all women, 72±14 years) presenting with ABS were evaluated by Myocardial Contrast Echocardiography (MCE) at rest, during adenosine test and at 1 month follow-up. Myocardi...
