AIM Our objective was to evaluate the outcome of superselective embolization used for treatment of renal vascular injuries on renal parenchyma and renal function. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between January 1999 and December 2001, 6 consecutive patients (five males, one female, mean age 45 years) underwent embolization to treat bleeding from renal vascular(More)
Tumoral calcinosis, a rare disease manifesting with periarticular, calcified masses in soft tissues, can be either primary or secondary to a disease, such as systemic sclerosis. In the case reported here, a patient diagnosed with systemic sclerosis presented with hard calcified masses that involved the shoulders and hips.
OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of intra-articular injection of contrast media, sorbitol and normal saline on the synovial membrane. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty three rabbits (126 knees) were used in this study. We injected the knees with amidotrizoate, ioxaglate, iopamidol, iotrol and diluted gadolinium-DTPA (2 mmol/l). Normal saline and sorbitol 27.25%(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims at presenting the evolution of the embolization technique in treating renal angiomyolipomas (AMLs) either diagnosed in patients with acute bleeding or discovered accidentally. METHODS Ten patients with renal AMLs have been through thirteen selective transcatheter arterial embolizations for 15 years. Two patients had tuberous(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a reliable technique of needle electrode examination and present the normal values of motor unit action potential (MUAP) parameters in iliopsoas muscle. METHODS Thirty-one normal subjects underwent quantitative electromyographic (QEMG) examination of the iliopsoas muscle, following an ultrasonographically confirmed technique of(More)
Hepatoblastoma, a malignant tumor which arises occasionally in older children but very rarely in adults, exhibits divergent differentiation with embryonal cells, fetal hepatocytes and immature elements. This report describes an embryonal type hepatoblastoma with neuroendocrine differentiation in a 16-year-old patient, which was diagnosed postoperatively.(More)
The objective of this study was to present our experience with intrahepatic biliary cystadenomas and cystadenocarcinomas in 10 patients surgically managed in our department. Intrahepatic biliary cystadenomas and cystadenocarcinomas are rare cystic tumors that are often misdiagnosed preoperatively as simple cysts or hydatid cysts. They recur after incomplete(More)
A 12-year-old girl was referred to our radiology department with a rapidly enlarging mass in the right breast. Fine-needle aspiration cytology was suggestive of fibroadenoma. Total excision of the mass was done, and diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology.
Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) improves the diagnostic interpretation of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG ) PET and CT in oncologic patients and has an impact on both diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of patient management. However, false positive findings from the PET/CT imaging should be taken into consideration as they(More)
