Portal venous gas can be detected by a bedside point of care ultrasound examination. We present the case of a 73-year-old female with advanced ischemic cardiomyopathy. She developed vague abdominal pain. Her findings were consistent with portal venous gas with point-of-care ultrasound. She had nonobstructive mesenteric ischemia.
A 39-year-old woman was admitted with right leg deep venous thrombosis (DVT). She was started on apixaban tablets but developed pulmonary embolism. The medical history showed sleeve gastrectomy. The failure of the antithrombotic drug shed light on the efficacy and pharmacodynamic changes of DOACs after bariatric surgery
