PURPOSE To evaluate multi- and single-detector row computed tomographic (CT) depiction of anatomic landmarks of temporal bone. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board approval and written informed consent were obtained. In 50 temporal bones, transverse and coronal single-detector row CT images were compared with transverse and reformatted coronal(More)
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of yttrium-90 radioembolization (RE) following left or right hepatic lobectomy. Between 2011 and 2016, 15 patients underwent RE with Y90-resin microspheres following right (8/15) or left (7/15) hepatic lobectomy. In eight patients, the whole liver remnant was treated during a single session, whereas the remaining seven(More)
To evaluate the feasibility of a novel curved CT-guided biopsy needle prototype with shape memory to access otherwise not accessible biopsy targets. A biopsy needle curved by 90° with specific radius was designed. It was manufactured using nitinol to acquire shape memory, encased in a straight guiding trocar to be driven out for access of otherwise(More)
Patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer who undergo distal pancreatectomy with resection of the celiac axis (CA) are at risk for postoperative hepatic or gastric ischemia if collateral blood flow from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) via the gastroduodenal artery is insufficient. This study presents a technique for preoperative angiographic(More)
Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms are a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of major pancreaticobiliary surgery. We evaluated the safety and efficacy of endovascular stentgraft implantation for the management of such vascular lesions. Between May 2013 and October 2015, ten patients with postoperative hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm, of which eight(More)
PURPOSE A novel approach for arterial bypass grafting using exclusively endovascular techniques was established in-vitro in a phantom model. MATERIAL AND METHODS The experimental setting consisted of a gel-wax phantom with two embedded parallel fluid-filled silicon tubes simulating the superficial femoral vessels. Through an 8-French sheath, a re-entry(More)
