PURPOSE To evaluate reduction in fibroid volume, the effect on clinical symptoms, adverse events and complications after percutaneous uterine artery embolization (UAE) as primary invasive treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty-two patients entered the study. Indications for treatment were fibroid-induced menorrhagia, bulk(More)
BACKGROUND Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a dominantly inherited disease with a high prevalence of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs). The first symptom of HHT may be stroke or fatal hemoptysis associated with the presence of PAVM. OBJECTIVE To evaluate different screening methods applied for the identification of PAVMs. (More)
To evaluate the usefulness of ultrasound in hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (HPS) and to analyse the correlation between the dimensions of the pyloric muscle and the age and the weight of the child, 34 children with suspected HPS and 34 controls were examined. An overlap between the dimensions of the pyloric muscle in the HPS group and in the controls(More)
AIM The aim of the study was to assess the early clinical experience with the Zilver Vena stent in treating patients with malignant superior vena cava syndrome. METHODS Demographic, procedural, and follow-up data of 12 patients (seven women; mean age 69 years) treated for superior vena cava syndrome with in all 21 Zilver Vena stents between March 2012 and(More)
Pheochromocytoma is a catecholamine-secreting tumour associated with varying symptoms ranging from episodic headache, sweating, paroxysmal hypertension and tachycardia to intractable cardiogenic shock. Cardiogenic shock is rare but well-described and the timing of correct management is crucial since mortality is high. Fifty per cent of pheochromocytomas are(More)
An increasing number of reports indicate that uterine fibroids can be successfully treated with uterine artery embolization (UAE). UAE seems to be a promising treatment for women who want to retain their uterus. This review summarizes the technical considerations and the results. UAE is a radiological procedure using angiography for visualization of the(More)
BACKGROUND Uterine fibroids are benign tumors seen in 20-40% of women of childbearing age, and these fibroids are usually treated by hysterectomy. During the last decade, embolization of the uterine arteries with polyvinyl alcohol microparticles has become an alternative treatment. PURPOSE To investigate whether uterine artery embolization generates a(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the reproducibility and the accuracy of pediatric radiologists' assessments of chest radiographs with respect to the presence or absence of heart defects in children with an asymptomatic heart murmur. DESIGN Ninety-eight children, ages 1 month to 15 years (median, 30.1 months), referred for evaluation of a heart murmur were(More)
During a period of three years, 51 patients with focal hepatic changes were submitted to 55 ultrasonically guided Biopty-biopsies. Histological diagnoses could be established in 45 patients at the first biopsy which corresponds to a diagnostic certainty of 88.2% Histological diagnoses were established in 49 patients which corresponds to a certainty of 96%.(More)
