BACKGROUND This study evaluated the role of interventional radiology (IR) procedures to manage complications after pancreaticoduodenectomy. METHODS A retrospective review was made of the records of patients with postsurgical complications managed with IR. RESULTS Among the 440 patients reviewed, the mortality, morbidity and reoperation rates were 1.6%,(More)
Although transjugular renal biopsy has been used extensively in Europe, experience with its use in the United States has been limited. We report 25 patients who underwent both transjugular liver and renal biopsies in the same sitting and 4 patients who underwent only a transjugular renal biopsy. All 29 patients had both liver disease and renal(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine criteria for a clinically significant vein stenosis with duplex ultrasound (DU) in patients with signs and symptoms of central venous outflow obstruction. METHODS Patients referred with swelling with or without pain to the vascular laboratory to detect vein obstruction were evaluated. These were mostly patients who had liver(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to describe the phenomenon of arteriovenous fistula (AVF) formation in venous thrombus. METHODS Patients referred to the vascular laboratory for evaluation for deep venous thrombosis were included. Duplex ultrasound scanning was used to detect flow within the thrombus. The flow patterns and the resistivity index were(More)
Peliosis hepatis is a rare entity that can affect children and cause fatal hepatic hemorrhage or hepatic failure. Radiographic findings are nonspecific and can resemble other hepatic pathologies such as cysts, abscesses, metastases, and hemangiomatosis. Peliosis hepatis can resolve spontaneously or by withdrawal of inciting medications. Certain cases may(More)
PURPOSE To describe the safety and efficacy of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stent placement in patients presenting with suprahepatic inferior vena cava (IVC) outflow compromise in the early postoperative period following orthotopic liver transplantation. METHODS AND RESULTS Between October 2002 and April 2009, 3 patients presented with IVC(More)
Complete inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis can be a lethal complication in a liver transplant recipient. The case of a 52-year-old liver transplant recipient, who developed complete IVC as well as left iliofemoral thrombosis, is reported. After treatment with combined tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and heparin, the IVC was successfully recanalized(More)
Uterine arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a rare but potentially life-threatening source of bleeding. A high index of suspicion and accurate diagnosis of the condition in a timely manor are essential because instrumentation that is often used for other sources of uterine bleeding can lead to massive hemorrhage. Although angiography remains the gold(More)
This is a case report of a 37-year-old man with severe testicular pain unresolved after conventional investigative and therapeutic methods. On the basis of his history of abdominal trauma followed by emergency splenectomy and evidence of functioning splenic tissue on a radionuclide scan, the diagnosis of splenosis was established.
