From March 1990 to May 1991, arterial stents were placed in seven patients because of a tight stenosis (five patients) or a total chronic occlusion (two patients) located in the infrarenal aorta. In one case, the aortic occlusion extended to both common iliac arteries. After balloon dilatation, aortic stents were successfully positioned in all cases.(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY This prospective study was undertaken to evaluate the accuracy of ultrasonography combined with colour Doppler and endoscopic ultrasonography for predicting superior mesenteric and portal vein involvement in pancreatic diseases. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was prospective. Forty-four patients were included. Ultrasonography with colour(More)
A 66 year old man with mild hypertension developed congestive cardiac failure of rapid onset associated with a continuous epigastric murmur suggesting an arteriovenous fistula. Doppler ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and abdominal arteriography showed the fistula to arise from a large thrombosed aneurysm of the hepatic(More)
The gold standard for the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism is still pulmonary angiography. Chest CT scan with injection of contrast medium can demonstrate a pulmonary embolism. In some cases, CT may discover a non suspected embolism. The aim of this retrospective study was to point out when an injection of contrast medium is necessary during CT scan of the(More)
The authors report two cases of intradural metastasis: a man with bronchopulmonary cancer suffering from left L5 sciatic pain and a woman with breast cancer whose examination shows motor weakness of both legs. CT was negative in the first case. Gadolinium injection on T1 sequence shows in the first case small nodular lesions along the roots of cauda equina(More)
Technical aspects of 3D contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography are exposed, detailing more particularly the pulse sequence used and the mode of injection of contrast agent. Then, various vascular territories are analyzed, and illustrated using various examples of main pathologies observed in routine clinical practice: abdominal aorta, renal(More)
Three cases of aberrant (elongated and tortuous) carotid arteries of the neck are reported. In 2 patients the carotid artery abnormalities were discovered at diagnostic work-up for: 1) sudden deafness, 2) persistent pharyngeal discomfort. Both patients presented a pulsating bulge in a pharyngeal wall with no lesion of the mucosa. In the third patient, the(More)
