PURPOSE To determine angiographically the origins and variations of renal arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 855 consecutive patients (163 females, 692 males; mean age, 61 years) living in the Cukurova region of Turkey, who underwent either aortofemoropopliteal (AFP) angiography for the investigation of peripheral arterial disease, or(More)
Acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a rare clinical condition that can cause portal hypertension and bowel infarction. Early diagnosis and treatment of PVT is crucial for the restoration of portal venous flow and reduction of morbidity and mortality. We report a successful treatment of acute PVT which was seen following splenectomy, utilizing catheter(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the technical success and immediate complication rates of temporary internal jugular vein (IJV) haemodialysis catheter placement in normal and high-risk patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS Two-hundred and twenty temporary internal jugular vein catheters inserted under ultrasound guidance in 172 patients were prospectively analyzed. Of(More)
Iliac vein compression syndrome (IVCS), also known as May-Thurner syndrome, is the result of compression of the left common iliac vein between the right common iliac artery and overlying vertebrae. The most common clinical presentation is left lower extremity deep vein thrombosis. Rarely, a patient with IVCS can present with obstruction of venous outflow,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of pericatheter sleeve formation, thrombus formation, and stenosis of the central veins in hemodialysis patients with temporary catheters. METHODS AND MATERIAL In this prospective study, 57 patients (40 males, 17 females) with temporary dialysis catheters had catheter venography by pulling back the catheter just before(More)
Echinococcal cysts located inside the pulmonary artery are extremely rare. The cause is usually rupture of intracardiac cysts or, more rarely, dissemination from a hepatic focus. The case of a 39-year-old patient with multiple hydatid cysts in the right and left pulmonary arteries and left ventricle wall is reported. The patient had undergone surgery for a(More)
A 24-year-old woman with uncontrollable high blood pressure for 3 months had significant stenosis of the left renal artery caused by fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD). The lesion was resistant to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty at 18 atm with a semicompliant balloon. Angioplasy with a 6 × 10 mm cutting balloon (CB) caused rupture of the artery.(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the incidence of abnormal hepatic vein Doppler waveform in patients with diffuse fatty infiltration of the liver (FIL). MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective study, 40 patients with diffuse FIL and 50 normal healthy adults who served as control group underwent hepatic vein (HV) Doppler ultrasonography. The patients with the(More)
PURPOSE To determine the distribution of atherosclerotic peripheral artery disease (PAD) and associated risk factors in patients who have undergone pelvic and lower-limb angiography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Records of 626 consecutive patients (88 women, 538 men; mean age, 62 years; age range, 31-85 y) with PAD were retrospectively reviewed. Severity of limb(More)
The aim of this study was to report technical details, procedure-related complications, and results of endovascular treatment in chronic iliac artery occlusion. Between 2001 and 2008, endovascular treatments of 127 chronic iliac artery occlusions in 118 patients (8 women and 110 men; mean age, 59 years) were retrospectively reviewed. The study was based on(More)
