PURPOSE To evaluate the role of contrast enhanced US in the characterization of renal tumors. Materials and methods. Eighty-six renal tumors (33 solid, 53 cystic) underwent contrast enhanced US after indeterminate CT/MRI (67 lesions) or US (19 lesions). Pathological correlation was available for 42 cases, and follow-up at 3 and 6 months was available for 13(More)

Twenty-three patients with congenital subvalvular aortic stenosis are reviewed. The importance of classifying this stenosis into four types based on angiocardiographic findings is stressed, as are the indications for left heart catheterization during the preoperative and postoperative course of the disease. The type of congenital subvalvular aortic stenosis(More)
