AIM To audit the use of inferior vena cava (IVC) filter insertions at three UK centres over 12 years to assess whether trends in filter use in the UK mirrored those seen elsewhere. MATERIALS AND METHODS Radiology department databases were interrogated for IVC filter insertions and removals between 1994 and 2006. Reports for these interventions, along with(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the chest was performed on eight patients with known cystic fibrosis. Comparison was made with the findings on plain chest radiographs. MRI shows a greater extent of disease than that predicted by the chest films alone and clearly demonstrates peribronchial thickening and mucoid impacted bronchi. It also distinguishes(More)
Paget Schroetter syndrome, or effort thrombosis of the axillosubclavian venous system, is distinct from other forms of upper limb deep vein thrombosis. It occurs in younger patients and often is secondary to competitive sport, music, or strenuous occupation. If untreated, there is a higher incidence of disabling venous hypertension than was previously(More)
BACKGROUND Effort-related thrombosis of the axillosubclavian vein (Paget-Schroetter syndrome, PSS) is uncommon. It tends to affect young, active individuals and yet consensus on management is lacking. The aim here was to analyse late outcomes in a series of patients treated for PSS using a standard protocol. METHODS The medical records of patients treated(More)
Prospective localization of parathyroid adenomas was attempted in 16 patients with hyperparathyroidism prior to surgery. All patients had magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using T1-weighted spin-echo (SE) sequences and a fat-suppression sequence, the short-tau inversion recovery (STIR) sequence. Correlation with the results of surgery yielded an overall(More)
A 74-year-old man presented with a right common iliac artery aneurysm and bilateral common femoral artery aneurysms. These aneurysms were repaired by a hybrid procedure. A one-stage approach was chosen including an endovascular stent-graft and femoro-iliaco-femoral Y-bypass grafting. The authors describe a novel combined open and endovascular approach to(More)
