PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of percutaneous renal artery embolization (RAE) of iatrogenic vascular kidney injuries and the effects of RAE on renal function and arterial blood pressure (BP). MATERIALS AND METHODS Over a 12-year period, 50 consecutive patients with severe hemorrhage after iatrogenic arterial kidney injuries underwent RAE.(More)
The recent technological developments of CT and MR units enable fast angiographic acquisitions with an improved spatial and temporal resolution. With advanced 3D visualisation, image post-processing and vessel wall-imaging, these technologies are now almost replacing diagnostic angiography that is now mainly indicated in case of suboptimal computed(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy and source of errors using a two-dimensional (2D)/three-dimensional (3D) fusion road map for endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of abdominal aortic aneurysm. MATERIALS AND METHODS A rigid 2D/3D road map was tested in 16 patients undergoing EVAR. After 3D/3D manual registration of preoperative multidetector computed(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of cone-beam computed tomography (CT) during sclerotherapy of low-flow vascular malformations. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty-seven cone-beam CT examinations were acquired during 81 sclerotherapy treatments of low-flow malformations in 48 patients: 81 were performed to evaluate sclerosing agent diffusion and six were performed(More)
Many adrenal venous sampling (AVS) protocols require repeated samplings before and after adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) stimulation. Maintaining catheter selectivity in the adrenal vein over time is essential but can be challenging, especially in the short right adrenal vein, where the catheter is often in an unstable position. The aim of our study was(More)
PURPOSE To assess the sensitivity and specificity for ratios of adrenal vein cortisol level (Ca) to peripheral vein cortisol level (Cp), adrenal vein aldosterone level (Aa) to peripheral vein aldosterone level (Ap), and combined cortisol and aldosterone levels ("combined ratio") for the detection of successful adrenal vein catheterization ("selectivity") in(More)
BACKGROUND People with type 2 diabetes mellitus are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. In some studies, the mortality rate among people with this condition has been equivalent to that among people with cardiovascular disease. We compared cardiovascular mortality between incident cases of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. METHODS The study(More)
OBJECTIVE Many investigators believe that basal adrenal venous sampling (AVS) should be done simultaneously, whereas others opt for sequential AVS for simplicity and reduced cost. This study aimed to evaluate the concordance of sequential and simultaneous AVS methods. DESIGN AND METHODS Between 1989 and 2015, bilateral simultaneous sets of basal AVS were(More)
OBJECTIVE Difficulty to recognize or canulate the right adrenal vein is the most frequent cause of adrenal venous sampling (AVS) failure. We aimed to assess multinomial regression modeling (MRM) of peripheral and left adrenal vein samplings to detect lateralization of aldosterone secretion when the right AVS is missing. METHODS Simultaneous bilateral AVS(More)
