Venous thromboembolism in COVID-19: systematic review of reported risks and current guidelines

Systematic review
Fontana P, Casini A, Robert-Ebadi H, Glauser F, Righini M, Blondon M
Swiss Med Wkly. 2020;150:w20301

Venous thromboembolism very commonly complicates the clinical course of inpatients with COVID-19, despite thromboprophylaxis. The risk appears highest among critically ill inpatients. Many questions remain unresolved, as delineated by the heterogeneity of national and international guidelines.

Recommendations on the use of anticoagulants for the treatment of patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia in Switzerland

Review article: Medical guidelines
Alberio L, Angelillo-Scherrer A, Asmis L, Casini A, Fontana P, Graf L, Hegemann I, Kremer Hovinga JA, Korte W, Lecompte T, Martinez M, Nagler M, Studt JD, Tsakiris DA, Wuillemin W
Swiss Med Wkly. 2020;150:w20210

Management of acute heparin-­induced thrombocytopenia currently involves cessation of heparin exposure, and inhibition of coagulation with an anticoagulant other than heparin.

Thromboprophylaxis and laboratory monitoring for in-hospital patients with COVID-19 - a Swiss consensus statement by the Working Party Hemostasis

Special article
Casini A, Alberio L, Angelillo-Scherrer A, Fontana P, Gerber B, Graf L, Hegemann I, Korte W, Kremer Hovinga JA, Lecompte T, Martinez M, Nagler M, Studt JD, Tsakiris D, Wuillemin W, Asmis L

Based on the available literature and published recommendations from international societies, the Working Party on Hemostasis (Swiss Society of Hematology) has prepared recommendations for pharmacological thromboprophylaxis in COVID-19 patients in the acute setting.

Liquid biopsy in tissue-born lymphomas

Review article: Biomedical intelligence
Spina V, Rossi D

“Liquid biopsy” in lymphoma types lacking leukaemic involvement refers to the accessing of tumour-specific DNA in plasma, serum or other body fluids, without the necessity of an invasive tumour biopsy.

The immune influence of a parabiosis model on tumour-bearing mice

Original article
Feng N, Luo JM, Guo X
Swiss Med Wkly. 2018;148:w14678

The occurrence and development of cancer cells in the body is a dynamic process of interaction between the immune system and the tumour cells. Whether tumour growth is promoted or suppressed in the parabiosis model is still unclear.

Diagnosis and treatment of follicular lymphoma: an update

Review article: Biomedical intelligence
Bargetzi M, Baumann R, Cogliatti S, Dietrich PY, Duchosal M, Goede J, Hitz F, Konermann C, Lohri A, Mey U, Novak U, Papachristofilou A, Stenner F, Taverna C, Zander T, Renner C

Over the last few years, there have been many changes in the management of patients with follicular lymphoma, resulting in improvements in progression-free survival and quality of life.

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma chemotherapy reveals a combined immunodeficiency syndrome in cartilage hair hypoplasia

Original article
Nguyen A, Martin Silva N, de Boysson H, Damaj G, Aouba A
Swiss Med Wkly. 2018;148:w14606

Cartilage hair hypoplasia is a rare autosomal recessive ribosomopathy related to a mutation in the ribonuclease mitochondrial RNA processing (RMRP) gene, which encodes the mitochondrial portion of the RNA processing endonuclease.

Sauter TC, Eberle B, Wuillemin WA, Thiele T, Angelillo-Scherrer A, Exadaktylos AK, Erdoes G, Cuker A, Nagler M
Swiss Med Wkly. 2018;148:w14598

Management of anticoagulation-associated bleeding has become more challenging as the number of available drugs increases: vitamin K antagonists, unfractionated and low molecular heparin, as well as the newer direct oral anticoagulants targeting either factor Xa or thrombin.
