Uterine leiomyosarcoma (ULMS) is an uncommon malignancy that accounts for one-third of uterine sarcomas and represents 1% of all uterine malignancies, with an incidence averaging 0.5-1/100,000/year. The prognosis is poor due to its intrinsic aggressiveness and its characteristic high metastatic potential with reported distant metastatic spread in lung,(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the technical success and clinical long-term results of renal artery aneurysm (RAA) treatment using covered stents. METHODS We performed a retrospective study on endovascular treatment of nine patients with 10 RAAs, arising from the main renal artery or from the proximal portion of large segmental arteries.(More)
