PURPOSE To evaluate treatment outcome with respect to the indication for treatment in patients with neuroendocrine tumors metastatic to the liver undergoing hepatic artery embolization with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles. MATERIALS AND METHODS Charts and radiographs were reviewed of 35 patients undergoing 63 separate sessions of embolotherapy between(More)
Increasing data support the use of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) stent-grafts for de novo and revision transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) applications. Animal experiments have indicated that polyethylene terephthalate (PET) stent-grafts provide no improvement or actually worsen TIPS patency compared with controls, but human TIPS(More)
PURPOSE Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) has become a standard treatment option for patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This retrospective study evaluated the safety and efficacy of TACE in patients at high risk with increased serum bilirubin level, low serum albumin level, poor hepatic reserve, or compromised hepatopetal flow(More)
Irreversible electroporation (IRE) for treatment of locally advanced pancreatic tumors is garnering increasing attention. This study was conducted to determine perioperative morbidity and mortality for locally advanced pancreatic cancer. Prospective data of 50 consecutive patients receiving IRE for T4 lesions at a single tertiary center were analyzed. The(More)
Sacrococcygeal teratomas (SCTs) can present a challenging problem and can be associated with significant perinatal morbidity and mortality. A female child was born at 36 weeks’ gestation with a large, vascular Type 1 SCT originally identified by prenatal ultrasound. A CT scan showed two large feeding vessels arising from both internal iliac arteries that(More)
Hemobilia is a rare manifestation of hepatic malignancies. The current treatment of choice for hemobilia is transcatheter hepatic arterial embolization. However, there have been only two published reports that describe the use of hepatic arterial embolization for hemobilia caused by hepatic neoplasms. In addition, this procedure is occasionally unsuccessful(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aims to evaluate outcomes of bare-metal stents (BMS) versus drug-eluting stents (DES) in patients who undergo stenting for transplant renal arterial stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed records of renal transplantation patients who underwent transplant renal arterial stenting from September 2009 to September(More)
