Divi et al describe a group of 71 patients who developed subclavian vein compression and/or thrombosis. In this group, 73 operative procedures were performed following diagnosis, primarily catheter-directed thrombolysis followed in 3 or more weeks by surgical decompression. Patients with isolated subclavian vein obstruction have a more favorable outcome relative to those with combined neurogenic and venous pathologic features. Decompression should be delayed following thrombolysis to reduce the incidence of postoperative complications.
Hwang et al examined the reason for the high rate of breast cancer in Marin County, California, and the risk factors extant in this area that may produce estrogen receptor–positive breast cancer. Their conclusion was that patients with estrogen receptor–positive tumors were more likely to have undergone hormone therapy.
