- Reduction of peripherally inserted central catheter-associated DVTR Scott Evans
Medical Informatics, Intermountain Healthcare, Salt Lake City, UT 84143, USA
Chest 143:627-33. 2013..As peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) use has increased, so has the upper extremity DVT rate. PICC diameter may pose the most modifiable risk for PICC-associated DVT...

Chest 138:803-10. 2010..PICC insertion teams and other health-care providers need to understand the risk factors so that they can develop methods to prevent DVT...
- The use of a fixed high sensitivity to evaluate five D-dimer assays' ability to rule out deep venous thrombosis: a novel approachScott M Stevens
Department of Internal Medicine, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84143, USA
Br J Haematol 131:341-7. 2005..These findings should be subjected to a prospective management study, as a small reduction in sensitivity from our findings could result in a clinically relevant decrease in negative predictive value...
- Atypical calciphylaxis in a patient receiving warfarin then resolving with cessation of warfarin and application of hyperbaric oxygen therapyChandramouli Banerjee
University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA
Clin Appl Thromb Hemost 16:345-50. 2010..Conclusion: We present what we believe is the first case of atypical calciphylaxis thought to be attributable to warfarin treated with a therapeutic substitution of anticoagulant and HBOT leading to resolution of cutaneous lesions...
