Accurate assessment of pulmonary and extrapulmonary organ involvement in sarcoidosis is one of the great challenges for clinicians. This assessment includes the evaluation of symptoms and of sarcoidosis activity in a specific organ and its functional consequences. In this review, radiological and nuclear techniques to image the inflammatory activity of(More)
AIM The aim of this paper was to review technical success and clinical outcome of reinterventions to treat complications after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair (EVAR) in a tertiary vascular center. METHODS The study enrolled 107 patients treated for post-EVAR complications between January 2005 and March 2014. Details of reinterventions,(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term results (1-15 years) of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of localized atherosclerotic lesions of the infrarenal aorta. METHODS This was a retrospective study. From January 1987 to January 2002, 69 patients underwent PTA of an isolated stenosis of the lower abdominal aorta under(More)
OBJECTIVE Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) non-invasively determines tissue oxygen saturation (Sto2) in muscle tissue. Its application to monitor real time hemodynamic changes during percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and Sto2 changes in feet 4 weeks after PTA was evaluated. METHODS This study included 14 patients with critical limb ischemia(More)
BACKGROUND Diffuse parenchymal lung disease represents a diverse and challenging group of pulmonary disorders. A consistent diagnostic approach to diffuse parenchymal lung disease is crucial if clinical trial data are to be applied to individual patients. We aimed to evaluate inter-multidisciplinary team agreement for the diagnosis of diffuse parenchymal(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the lung is a rare tumor but it should be considered when dealing with primary lung tumors in children, adolescents, and nonsmoking adults. It is, from a pathologic point of view, a benign tumor composed of a spindle cell proliferation and inflammatory cells. Its clinical behavior, however, is variable with a(More)
Distal migration of aortic abdominal endografts may lead to endoleaks and must be overcome. Revision surgery has been related to substantial morbidity and mortality. In this case report, a new endovascular technique has been described to secure migrated primary endografts and proximal extender cuffs during revision surgery after failed endovascular aneurysm(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the accuracy of duplex ultrasonography (DUS)-based peak systolic velocity ratio (PSVR) and ipsilateral common femoral artery (CFA) velocity waveform analysis to identify a hemodynamically significant equivocal iliac artery stenosis (30%-75% lumen diameter reduction). Intra-arterial pressure measurements were used as a(More)
PURPOSE To systematically review and meta-analyze the added value of 3-dimensional (3D) image fusion technology in endovascular aortic repair for its potential to reduce contrast media volume, radiation dose, procedure time, and fluoroscopy time. METHODS Electronic databases were systematically searched for studies published between January 2010 and March(More)
PURPOSE To report a randomized trial comparing the Legflow paclitaxel-eluting balloon (PEB) + Supera stenting to Supera stenting alone in patients with intermediate to long superficial femoral artery (SFA) lesions. METHODS The multicenter RAPID trial ( controlled-trials.com ; identifier ISRCTN47846578) randomized (1:1) 160 patients (mean age 67 years; 102(More)
