OBJECTIVES the long-term outcome in following insertion of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters remains unclear. DESIGN prospective study. MATERIAL AND METHODS one hundred consecutive patients received percutaneous vena cava filters between 1988 and 1993. The patients underwent clinical examination, abdominal X-rays and duplex ultrasound of the IVC, right(More)
The purpose of this study was to review the clinical and CT findings of pulmonary nodules and masses in lung transplant recipients and to determine distinguishing features among the various aetiologies. This retrospective study included 106 lung transplant recipients who had a chest CT performed over a 7-year period in a single institution. Twenty-four(More)
The prognosis for pancreatic cancer is poor, and early diagnosis is essential for surgical management. By comparison with its classic form, the presence of acute or chronic inflammatory signs will hinder its detection and delay its diagnosis. The atypical forms of acute pancreatitis need to be known in order to detect patients who require additional(More)
Complete spontaneous rupture of a percutaneous caval filter produced two equal parts. Long-term follow-up showed that the filter then remained stable with no complications. This case emphasizes the importance of long-term follow-up of patients with caval filters.
Solitary Pancreas (SPT) and simultaneous kidney-pancreas (SPKT) transplants carry a high risk of surgical complications that may lead to the loss of the pancreas graft and impact later kidney function. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of MDCT in the diagnosis of early complications and its impact on kidney function. All patients(More)
OBJECTIVES In critically ill patients, the assessment of neurologic function can be difficult because of the use of sedative agents. It is not known whether neurologic signs observed under sedation can predict short-term outcomes. The objective of this study was to assess whether abnormal brainstem responses within the first 24 hrs of sedation are(More)
Pancreatic ductal carcinoma is one of the deadliest cancers in the world. The only hope for prolonged survival still remains surgery with complete R0 resection even if most patients will promptly develop metastases and/or local relapses. Due to the silent nature of the disease, fewer than 20% of patients are eligible for a curative-intent resection. As no(More)
