Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) has evolved as an effective intervention for treatment of complications of portal hypertension. The use of polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stents have improved the patency of the shunts and diminished the incidence of TIPS dysfunction. However, TIPS-related refractory hepatic encephalopathy (rHE) poses a(More)
When intracranial aneurysms are deemed nonclippable, an accepted alternative neurosurgical treatment is to reinforce the aneurysm wall by wrapping or coating it with various materials, including muslin (cotton gauze). Granulomatous or "foreign-body" reactions, sometimes referred to as "muslinomas" or "gauzomas," and adhesive arachnoiditis are known but(More)
PURPOSE To compare the thrombolytic efficacy and safety of standard catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) and ultrasound (US)-accelerated thrombolysis (UAT) for the treatment of iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis (DVT). MATERIALS AND METHODS All medical records of patients who underwent CDT or UAT for DVT between June 2004 and October 2011 at a single(More)
Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS) have evolved as an effective and durable nonsurgical option in the treatment of portal hypertension (PH). It has been shown to improve survival in decompensated cirrhosis and may also serve as a bridge to liver transplantation. In spite of the technical improvements in the procedure, problems occur with(More)
Transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) is a vascular complication frequently seen because of increase in the number of renal transplantations. Early diagnosis and management is essential to optimize a proper graft function. Currently, the endovascular treatment of TRAS using angioplasty and/or stenting is considered the treatment of choice with the(More)
