Contrast-induced nephropathy is a potentially serious untoward reaction to radiologic contrast media. The incidence of this nephropathy and the predisposing conditions are not well established, possibly because of methodologic differences between studies. We evaluated the incidence of contrast-induced nephropathy after femoral arteriography in 394 patients(More)

OBJECTIVES Complex arterial occlusive, traumatic, and aneurysmal lesions may be difficult or impossible to treat successfully by standard surgical techniques when severe medical or surgical comorbidities exist. The authors describe a single center's experience over a 2 1/2-year period with 96 endovascular graft procedures performed to treat 100 arterial(More)
PURPOSE The clinical literature describing the use of alteplase in the treatment of peripheral arterial occlusive (PAO) disease is reviewed. MATERIALS AND METHODS The literature database was acquired by a MEDLINE search using the Boolean keyword string: tissue plasminogen activator and/or rt-PA and peripheral not animal. A review was performed to identify(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the feasibility of reversible vessel embolization with angiographic guidance for delivery of a rapid reverse-thermosensitive polymer to provide hemostasis as an aid for minimally invasive renal surgery in a porcine model. MATERIALS AND METHODS After isolation of the left kidney of seven anesthetized pigs (50-70 kg) with a surgical(More)
