We describe a case of external snapping hip diagnosed by dynamic sonography. The case prompted us to retrospectively review the imaging findings of children who clinically had presented with snapping hip. From this review we identified the features on MRI and CT of either thickening of the iliotibial band or thickening of the anterior edge of the gluteus(More)
PURPOSE Studies of long-term percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) results have been less extensive in children than in adults. The authors sought to evaluate the outcomes of PTA for pediatric renovascular hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS The authors retrospectively evaluated 19 hypertensive children (ages 2-18 years) who underwent renal PTA from(More)
BACKGROUND Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) and neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are the most common causes of pediatric renal artery stenosis (RAS) in western countries, and characterization of their angiographic features could aid in an accurate diagnosis and in treatment. OBJECTIVE This study characterizes renal angiographic findings in pediatric(More)
Enterogenous cyst is extremely rare in the supratentorial compartment. Two adult patients with histologically variefied supratentorial entrogenous cyst are described. Light microscopy and immunohistochemistry examination revealed the endodermal origin of the cyst. Enterogenous cyst should be considered in the differential diagnosis of non-enhancing cyst in(More)
BACKGROUND Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) has an incidence that ranges from 1 to 22 per 100,000 children worldwide, with involvement of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) in 17-87% of patients. Intraarticular corticosteroid injections are beneficial in the local treatment of JIA and of other types of arthritis. OBJECTIVE To describe and assess the(More)
INTRODUCTION Human lyophilized platelets hold promise as a novel hemostatic infusion agent for the control of traumatic hemorrhage. Rehydrated, lyophilized platelets (Stasix) were investigated as an infusible hemostatic agent in experimental non-compressible hemorrhage, using a porcine liver injury model. METHODS Yorkshire swine underwent a grade III(More)
OBJECT The use of cerebral intraoperative angiography has been described in resection of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in adults. More recently, studies have described experiences with intraoperative angiography in a small number of children. However, data on the safety and clinical utility of intraoperative angiography in the pediatric population(More)
Chylothorax is an uncommon complication of cardiothoracic surgery in children that is traditionally treated with either conservative (diet modification, octreotide administration, and percutaneous drainage) or surgical (thoracic duct ligation, pleurodesis, and pleuroperitoneal shunt) approaches. We report here the cases of 2 children (a 6-month-old and a(More)
BACKGROUND Few published series are dedicated solely to CT-guided vertebral bone biopsy in children. OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to review the diagnostic yield of CT-guided vertebral bone biopsy in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of 26 consecutive CT-guided vertebral bone biopsies during a 7-year period in 24 children(More)
This article describes the radiologic techniques to obtain upper gastrointestinal access in children with poor oral intake and inadequate nutrition. Our goal is to provide a simple guide of radiologic gastrostomy and gastrojejunostomy procedures, their technical success, and long-term outcomes. Potential complications will be discussed as well as their(More)
