PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the types, prevalence rates, and clinical implications of portal vein (PV) variations using routine abdominal multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 1384 retrospectively evaluated patients (721 males, 663 females) that had undergone routine abdominal MDCT. Portal(More)
PURPOSE To determine angiographically the origins and variations of renal arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 855 consecutive patients (163 females, 692 males; mean age, 61 years) living in the Cukurova region of Turkey, who underwent either aortofemoropopliteal (AFP) angiography for the investigation of peripheral arterial disease, or(More)
The aim of this study was to report technical details, procedure-related complications, and results of endovascular treatment in chronic iliac artery occlusion. Between 2001 and 2008, endovascular treatments of 127 chronic iliac artery occlusions in 118 patients (8 women and 110 men; mean age, 59 years) were retrospectively reviewed. The study was based on(More)
Percutaneous treatment of a huge congenital splenic cyst in a 23-year-old man is presented. The cyst had been catheterized and drained two times within a 3-month period without injecting any sclerosing agent into the cavity. On the third attempt, catheter drainage and injection of alcohol into the cyst cavity were performed because of insufficient response(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the prevalence, clinical, and imaging findings of interruption or congenital stenotic lesions of the inferior vena cava (IVC), associated malformations, and their clinical relevance. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between March 2004 and March 2006, 7972 patients who had undergone consecutive routine abdominal multidetector row computed(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to describe the technical aspects and outcomes of the retrograde tibial approach and balloon predilation for recanalization of complex infrainguinal arterial occlusions and determine the efficacy of this approach in minimizing failure rates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between September 2006 and April 2011, antegrade revascularization failed in(More)
Acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a rare clinical condition that can cause portal hypertension and bowel infarction. Early diagnosis and treatment of PVT is crucial for the restoration of portal venous flow and reduction of morbidity and mortality. We report a successful treatment of acute PVT which was seen following splenectomy, utilizing catheter(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to present the prevalence, imaging and clinical findings, and possible causes of portal venous system aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 1998 to 2006, a total of 38 portal venous system aneurysms identified in 25 patients were retrospectively reviewed. The data of seven patients diagnosed using color Doppler(More)
The authors describe the endovascular treatment of a high-output, large-caliber, postnephrectomy aortocaval fistula using a mixture of cyanoacrylate and lipiodol combined with Gianturco coil embolization. Thirty-nine coils were used to decrease the flow through the fistula so that a fast-polymerizing glue mixture could be injected into the fistula. During(More)
A 10-year-old boy presented to our clinic with left lower extremity swelling present for 1 year with deterioration of symptoms during the prior month. Laboratory investigation for deep vein thrombosis was negative. Venography and computed tomography scan of the pelvis showed compression of the left common iliac vein by the right common iliac artery. A(More)
