2. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 2 Vascular surgery evolution The first elective operation for treatment of an aneurysm was reported by the most famous surgeon in Greek antiquity,ANTYLLUS, in the 2nd century. AMBROSE PARE(1510-1590), mainly contributed principles wound care-aneurysm operations. After a century,RICHARD WISEMAN(1625-1686)Father of English Surgerydescribed aneurysm in arm.

3. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 3 contd Sutures should be made with very fine needles while the wall is somewhat stretched.Stenosis or occlusion only occurs-faulty technique-which is still valid 100 years later. In 1910, he demonstrated that blood vessels could be kept in cold storage for long periods before transplanting them. Carrel won the noble prize for this work in 1912 in recognition of his work on vascular suture and transplantation of blood vessel.

10. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 10 AntiPhospholipid Antibody Syndrome WHEN TO EVALUATE Unexplained still birth/fetal death after 10 wks Severe IUGR prior to term Severe pre-eclampsia at <34 wks gestation Unexplained arterial/venous thrombosis in any territory

11. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 11 AntiPhospholipid Antibody Syndrome TREATMENT Anticoagulation Heparin ? Oral Long term ? Life Long ( risks 3% chance per year of major hhage, 1/5th fatal) Anti-platelet drugs Aspirin LMWH Pregnancy Heparin / LMWH PROPHYLAXIS (APLAS without thrombotic problems) Aspirin Lifestyle Modification Control of Risk factors HTN, Smoking, Cholesterol levels, Weight control

12. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 12 AntiPhospholipid Antibody Syndrome Special Prenatal/Birth/Neonatal Considerations Ideally, one should seek medical advice before becoming pregnant. Once pregnancy is achieved to see Obstetrician - to decide on the need for treatment frequent office visits will be needed to: Screen for preeclampsia, Fetal Monitoring Ultrasound examinations to check the growth of the baby. For patients on heparin extra blood tests may be needed to adjust the dose depending on the type of heparin being used, and the past history of the patient.

57. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 57 VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM DURING PREGNANCY Key Points Even 1st trimester carries risk of thrombosis (2/3rd antepartum deaths) Additional risk factors/ family history / known thrombophilia may indicate thromboprophylaxis Close attention should be paid to any pregnant woman c/o leg/chest symptoms for e/o DVT/PE All women undergoing C-section should be assessed for prophylaxis against VTE Midwives, GPs & other medical staff should take particular attention of women with chest or leg symptoms after vaginal delivery Women with risk factors for DVT should be carefully screened and considered for thromboprophylaxis

58. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 58 VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM DURING PREGNANCY Prevention: Weight control Avoid prolong immobility Leg elevation Avoid OCPs containing high dose of Estrogens Adequate hydration Avoid Smoking/Alcohol intake

59. 3/15/2012 DrU.Gupta,Dr.N.K.Gupta 59 VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM DURING PREGNANCY VTE is an uncommon but very serious complication of pregnancy Pregnant women are at increased risk for VTE, and may present in subtle ways Suspected VTE in pregnancy should be investigated thoroughly Risk of VTE can be reduced in appropriate patients with judicious use of anticoagulants
