OBJECTIVES Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows accurate assessment of Crohn's disease (CD), but requires gadolinium injection. Diffusion-weighted (DW)-MRI yields comparable performances in small bowel CD. We compared the accuracy of DW-MR enterocolonography (MREC) and the magnetic resonance index of activity (MaRIA), and performed an external validation(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate long-term results of infrapopliteal percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for limb salvage. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective study of 71 consecutive infrapopliteal PTAs in 49 patients with rest pain (n = 20) or ulceration (n = 29) was conducted. In 18 patients, surgical minor amputation or debridment was also performed. (More)
OBJECTIVE To compare three methods used to clear the lacrimal canal. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 32 files (20 for the dacryocysto-rhinostomy by endoscopic way, 5 for the dacryocysto-rhinostomy by external way and 7 cases of percutaneous stenting) were reviewed. For each, costs of performed interventions were reviewed. An average of the total cost per(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the following: whether the arterial supply of a normal appendix is visible with Doppler sonography; whether the physiologic vasodilatation that accompanies childhood appendicitis is visible; what Doppler patterns appear once necrosis of the appendix has occurred; what Doppler shifts are visible with(More)
Recurrent spontaneous hemarthrosis of the knee is common and often related to a detectable cause. In contrast, hemarthrosis after knee arthroplasty is rare and frequently unexplained. We report a case of recurrent hemarthrosis 6 years after total knee arthroplasty. The cause was hypervascularization about the joint, and embolization therapy was effective.
We report two cases of percutaneous transhepatic stenting of the portal vein to treat stenosis and occlusion disclosed 5 and 18 months, respectively, after orthotopic liver transplantation in two adult patients. If long-term patency is satisfactory, this technique should allow long-term management of portal vein stenosis and occlusion without the use of(More)
The authors observed a 4-year-old girl who has Rasmussen's encephalitis. She started with frequent localized and generalized seizures. Standard antiepileptic treatment was almost ineffective. The frequency of the generalized seizures decreased, but the myoclonic jerks of the left part of the body persisted. An EEG showed partial status epilepticus. The(More)
According to the ultrasound and MRI findings, supported by planned dissections, the female perineum is organised around the musculofascial system converging towards the fibrous structure of the central perineal tendon (CPT). Behind the CPT the fascial layers form part of a fibrous assembly extending from the ventral surface of the sacrum to the anal(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the frequency, morphology and clinical long term evolution of pineal cysts depicted on MRI. PATIENTS AND METHODS one thousand eight hundred and forty four (1 532 women and 126 men) MRI examinations were retrospectively reviewed. Coronal and sagittal spin echo T1 weighted sequences without and with gadolinium injection were performed,(More)
PURPOSE To review the histological features of 26 circumscribed liver lesions associated with liver capsule retraction and discuss the differential diagnosis while evaluating for the presence of fibrous stromal reaction. Materials and methods. Retrospective study performed between January 2005 and June 2008 including 26 patients: 18 males and 6 females,(More)
