PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of probucol and/or of endovascular brachytherapy (EVBT) on restenosis after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of femoropopliteal arteries. METHODS A total of 335 patients (206 men; mean age 72+/-9 years) with intermittent claudication were randomized according to a 2x2 factorial design to 1 of the 4 groups:(More)
OBJECTIVE We explored the potential for patients with proven venous thromboembolism or pulmonary embolism (PE) to have occult malignancies detected during the same CT examination. To verify this, we compared the presence of occult malignancies identified on pulmonary artery CT angiography (CTA) and CT venography (CTV) when venous thromboembolism (VTE) was(More)

Special attention should be paid to the paravertebral muscles during imaging, so that a possible muscular disease is not overlooked, especially in patients with low back pain.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term clinical and radiologic findings after insertion of a bioresorbable polylactide plates P(L/DL)LA 70/30 implant (PolyMax) in the repair of orbital floor and wall defects, with special focus on stability and clinical signs of foreign-body reaction. METHODS Forty-six patients who had orbital blowout fractures with at least(More)
