Endovascular treatment of two pseudoaneurysms originating from the left ventricle.
A 67-year-old woman resented with an acute type A aortic dissection, which was treated surgically with aortic valve replacement as a composite graft with reimplantation of the coronary arteries. At the end of surgery, a left-ventricular venting catheter was placed through the apex and closed with a...
Use of a trellis device for endovascular treatment of venous thrombosis involving a duplicated inferior vena cava.
We report the case of a 62-year-old woman with extensive venous clot involving the infrarenal segment of a duplicated left IVC who underwent pharmacomechanical thrombectomy and tissue plasminogen activator catheter-directed thrombolysis with complete deep venous thrombosis resolution. To our knowled...
Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair with chimney and snorkel grafts: indications, techniques and results.
The chimney technique in endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (Ch-EVAR) involves placement of a stent or stent-graft parallel to the main aortic stent-graft to extend the proximal or distal sealing zone while maintaining side branch patency. Ch-EVAR can facilitate endovascular repair of juxtarenal an...
Treatment of Portosystemic Shunt Myelopathy with a Stent Graft Deployed through a Transjugular Intrahepatic Route.
A case of surgically created splenorenal shunt complicated with shunt myelopathy was successfully managed by placement of a stent graft within the splenic vein to close the portosystemic shunt and alleviate myelopathy. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a case of shunt myelopathy in a pat...
Long-term Results of Endovascular Stent Graft Placement of Ureteroarterial Fistula.
We retrospectively analyzed stent graft placement for UAF performed at our institution from 2004 to 2012. Fistula location was assessed by contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and angiography, and freedom from hematuria recurrence and mortality rates were estimated. Stent graft placement for 1...
Bare metal stenting for endovascular exclusion of aortic arch thrombi.
We report two cases of ascending and aortic arch thrombus that were treated by covering the thrombus with an uncovered stent. Both procedures were performed under local anesthesia via a femoral approach. A femoral cutdown was used in one case, and a total percutaneous insertion was possible in the s...
Temporary arterial balloon occlusion as an adjunct to yttrium-90 radioembolization.
This study was designed to describe the technique of arterial occlusion using a temporary occlusion balloon system as an alternative to coil occlusion during Yttrium-90 radioembolization of hepatic tumors. Review of charts, angiography, and follow-up imaging studies of consecutive patients undergoin...
Assessing the reliability and quality of online uterine fibroid embolization resources.
This study was designed to examine the best internet resources about uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) pertinent to medical trainees, radiologists, gynecologists, family physicians, and patients. The terms "uterine fibroid embolization," "uterine fibroid embolization," and "uterine artery embolizat...
Direct Percutaneous Puncture and Embolization of Ruptured Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm.
A systematic review of protocols for the three-dimensional morphologic assessment of abdominal aortic aneurysms using computed tomographic a...
The morphology of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) directly influences the perioperative outcome and long-term durability of endovascular aneurysm repair. A variety of methods have been proposed for the characterization of AAA morphology using reconstructed three-dimensional (3D) compute...
