In this paper we present a hybrid OD-3D modeling method to investigate the hepatic flow in a virtual right lobe hepatectomy (RLH), the surgical procedure for adult-to-adult living donor liver transplanation (LDLT). The 3D method is employed to simulate complex 3D flow in the portal vein, and the OD model is used to study the systemic hepatic circulation. In(More)
The septocutaneous perforators represent one of the major sources of the blood supply to the skin of the lower extremity. Despite several well-described anatomic accounts, the location of lower leg septocutaneous perforators, as they originate from each of the three main infrapopliteal vessels in the leg, remains inconsistent as a result of individual(More)
The clinical, duplex, and angiographic findings in six patients with seven spontaneous extracranial carotid artery dissections are reported. Four dissections resulted in internal carotid artery occlusion. These patients complained of ipsilateral headache followed by contralateral hemiplegia. The other three dissections involved the common carotid artery and(More)
Symptomatic carotid dissection following repair of a proximal aortic arch dissection has been successfully diagnosed by noninvasive ultrasonic duplex scanning. Angiographic confirmation, follow-up examinations by duplex scanner, and conservative management with heparin anticoagulation and tight blood pressure control are discussed. The differing etiologies(More)
In this paper we present an electrical analog model for the hepatic arterial buffer response (HABR), an intrinsic regulation mechanism in the liver whereby the arterial flow counteracts the changes in portal venous flow. The model itself is a substantial simplification of a previously published model, with nonlinear arterial and portal resistors introduced(More)
PURPOSE During the past 14 months we conducted a prospective clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of duplex-directed manual occlusion (DDMO) of iatrogenic femoral false aneurysms (FFAs) as an alternative to standard operative management. METHODS In all cases DDMO was performed with real-time color-flow imaging while steady, continuous external pressure(More)
This study was undertaken to determine the safety and feasibility of inferior vena cava (IVC) filter insertion at the bedside using duplex imaging in multi-trauma and/or critically ill patients. From February 1996 to August 1997, 53 multi-trauma and/or critically ill patients, who were in the intensive care unit and referred for an IVC filter, were(More)
In this paper, we apply a 3-D flow model and a 1-D circulation model to the hemodynamic analysis of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), the therapy for treating acute portal hypertension (PH) induced diseases. Using the 3-D model we are able to simulate the blood flow within a patient-specific TIPS system which was reconstructed from a(More)
A 32-year-old man was transferred to our hospital after a 2.0 by 2.5 cm traumatic false aneurysm of the distal extracranial vertebral artery was noted after a stab wound of the posterior side of the neck. To obviate the need for operative exposure of the distal vertebral artery at the base of the skull, we elected to perform duplex-directed manual occlusion(More)
