The role of embolotherapy for acute nonvariceal UGI hemorrhage that fails to respond to endoscopic hemostasis is defined and data on factors predicting angiographic and embolization failure is summarized.
Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Correlation Between Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Level and Degree of Enhancement by Multiphase Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography
In HCC, VEGF expression is correlated with the degree of contrast enhancement during arterial-phase CT and the level of enhancement during multiphase contrast-enhanced computed tomography was significantly correlated with V EGF expression.

3-bromopyruvate induces endoplasmic reticulum stress, inhibits global protein synthesis further contributing to cancer cell death, and shows tremendous potential as an anticancer agent, according to research in the laboratory.
Chitin-based embolic materials in the renal artery of rabbits: pathologic evaluation of an absorbable particulate agent.
Chitosan microspheres have great potential as a new embolic material since they block blood vessels more compactly with a lower rate of capillary formation.
Tuberculous Aneurysm of the Abdominal Aorta: Endovascular Repair Using Stent Grafts in Two Cases
Two cases in which a tuberculous aneurysm of the abdominal aorta was successfully repaired using endovascular stent grafts are reported, one of which is a 42-year-old woman with a large suprarenal abdominal aortsm and a right psoas abscess.
Packing technique for endovascular coil embolisation of peripheral arterial pseudo-aneurysms with preservation of the parent artery: safety, efficacy and outcomes.
Treatment of high-flow priapism with superselective transcatheter embolization in 27 patients: a multicenter study.
In vivo Tracking of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Labeled with a Novel Chitosan-coated Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles using 3.0T MRI
The novel chitosan-SPIO enables to label and track MSC for in vivo MRI without cellular alteration and shows any cytotoxicity up to 200 µg Fe/mL concentration.
Transcatheter Arterial Embolization in Patients with Kidney Diseases: an Overview of the Technical Aspects and Clinical Indications
This review presents the different embolization techniques and the principally employed occluding agents, and then the principal clinical indications and other pathologies that may benefit from this non-invasive therapy are discussed.
Preparation of doxorubicin-containing chitosan microspheres for transcatheter arterial chemoembolization of hepatocellular carcinoma
A new form of doxorubicin hydrochloride (DRH)-containing chitosan microspheres (CMs) was prepared by employing an expanding-loading-shrinking (E-L-S) process and could be used for transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) procedure in VX2 hepatic tumour models of rabbit and the anti-tumour effects of DRH-CMs were investigated.
