OBJECTIVE In this article, we focus on the arterial anatomy of the upper extremities, the technical aspects of upper extremity CT angiography (CTA), and CTA use in trauma patients. CONCLUSION CTA using modern MDCT scanners has evolved into a highly accurate noninvasive diagnostic tool for the evaluation of patients with abnormalities of the upper(More)
The purpose of our study is to report our experience with the use of an ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx) in an off-label fashion for the treatment of type II endoleak after endovascular repair of the thoracic (TEVAR) and abdominal (EVAR) aorta. A retrospective review of patients with type I and/or II endoleak treated with Onyx was performed. Data(More)
Sharp recanalization of chronic venous occlusions is usually performed with targeting of wire-capture devices like loop snares or balloons. We describe sharp recanalization of chronic venous occlusions using self-expanding stents and vascular plugs. We retrospectively reviewed all sharp venous recanalization procedures performed over an 11-month period and(More)
Vascular complications after solid organ transplantation are not uncommon and may lead to graft dysfunction and ultimately graft loss. A thorough understanding of the surgical anatomy, etiologies, and types of vascular complications, their presentation and the options for management are important for managing these complex patients. This article reviews the(More)

OBJECTIVE CT angiography using modern MDCT scanners has evolved into a highly accurate noninvasive diagnostic tool for the evaluation of patients with pathologic abnormalities of the upper extremity arterial system. CONCLUSION Here we focus on the use of this modality in patients with nontraumatic vascular pathologic abnormalities.
We report a patient with necrotizing mediastinitis complicated by a giant retrosternal mycotic pseudoaneurysm and prosthetic valve endocarditis successfully managed with a redo sternotomy under hypothermic circulatory arrest. The approach then included extensive débridement of the mediastinum, replacement of the ascending aorta and aortic arch with(More)
BACKGROUND Dysphagia is a known complication of pericardial effusions. Most cases of pericardial effusions are idiopathic, infectious, and neoplastic, but can also occur after cardiac procedures. OBJECTIVE To report the case of a patient who developed dysphagia from a sub-acute pericardial effusion caused by the placement of an implantable(More)
Percutaneous image-guided biopsies of pancreatic malignancies may prove challenging and nondiagnostic due to a variety of anatomic considerations. For patients with complex post-surgical anatomy, such as a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, diagnosis via endoscopic ultrasound with fine-needle aspiration may not be possible because of an inability to reach the(More)
