This study was designed to analyze the outcomes of endovascular treatment for internal iliac artery aneurysm (IIAA) at mid-term follow-up. We retrospectively analyzed 33 patients (28 males, mean age 77.4 years) who underwent endovascular treatment of 35 IIAAs (mean diameter 39.8 mm) from 2002 to 2012. We attempted to completely and selectively embolize all(More)
A 77-year-old man who received transarterial chemoembolization for large hepatocellular carcinomas complained of acute pain in the upper abdomen and suddenly developed severe jaundice, anemia, and massive hematuria. Abdominal computed tomography demonstrated gas gangrene at the tumor site. Clostridium perfringens was identified from blood samples and(More)
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair for a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm is an excellent alternative to open surgery, especially in patients with a number of comorbidities. It may cause fatal complications, including aortoesophageal fistula, but these are very rare. Here, we report the case of secondary aortoesophageal fistula four months after the(More)
To evaluate the safety, efficacy, and long-term results of endovascular stent graft placement for ureteroarterial fistula (UAF). 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(More)
Acute spontaneous and isolated dissection of the iliofemoral artery is an extremely rare entity. Conservative, surgical, and endovascular treatment have been used to treat such cases. To the best of our knowledge we report the first case of using hybrid management to successfully treat isolated external iliac artery dissection extending to the superficial(More)
Stent graft placement for ureteroarterial fistula is the preferred treatment. However, some pitfalls may occur during the procedure. Chronic inflammation process will induce longer adhesion area between artery and ureter, which results in unusual fistula site and rigid iliac arteries. This further leads to difficulty in advancing the endograft delivery(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy of intraarterial infusion of CO2-saturated solution in rabbit VX2 thigh tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fourteen Japanese white rabbits had VX2 tumors implanted in the right femoral muscle 3 weeks before intraarterial infusion. Rabbits were divided into control and CO2 groups (n = 7 each). Fifty milliliters of solution(More)
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair for blunt thoracic aortic injury in young adults with small aortic diameter often encounters high difficulty. We report, to our knowledge, the first case of successful treatment using combination of iliac leg and abdominal aortic cuff stent-graft.
Ectopic variceal hemorrhage caused by sinistral portal hypertension after splenic vein ligation during a pyloric-preserving pancreatoduodenectomy is a rare entity. We report the case of a 58-year-old man with symptoms of refractory melena. The varices could not be treated endoscopically and surgery was considered unsuitable due to severe adhesions and(More)
Endovascular treatment for arteriocaval fistula (ACF) has become the preferred alternative to open repair. However, endoleaks sometimes occur and maintain the ACF. A 64-year-old man presented with persistent fistula after placement of a bifurcated stent-graft for ACF complicating an aortoiliac aneurysm that was maintained by endoleaks from the inferior(More)
