BACKGROUND Aortic intramural hematoma (IMH) evolves very dynamically in the short-term to regression, dissection, or aortic rupture. The aim of the present study was to assess the long-term clinical and morphological evolution of medically treated IMH. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty of 68 consecutive patients with aortic IMH monitored clinically and by imaging(More)
Clinical and radiographic observations in 34 infants and children with congenital stenosis of the oesophagus are reported. (1) Congenital stenosis of the oesophagus occurs more frequently than the previous literature suggests. (2) A congenital stenosis most commonly affects the lower oesophagus at the junction of its middle and distal thirds. (3) High(More)
AIMS Intramural haematoma (IMH) forms part of the acute aortic syndrome presenting physiopathologic and evolutive patterns different from those of aortic dissection. The aim of this study was to determine the mortality and predictive factors of IMH in the first 3 months of evolution. METHODS AND RESULTS Sixty-eight consecutive patients diagnosed of IMH(More)
A left aortic arch with a right descending aorta is a rare congenital anomaly. The radiographic findings in 13 previously described cases and three additional cases are discussed. Characteristic findings on the plain radiograph and esophagram can usually obviate the need for aortography. The anomaly was associated with a vascular ring in at least four and(More)
The preoperative radiologic imaging workups of 44 pediatric liver transplantation patients were reviewed. Biliary atresia (43%) and metabolic disorders (33%) with end-stage liver disease were the leading indications for pediatric liver transplantation at our institution. The radiologic imaging examinations included chest and skeletal radiography, upper(More)
Trigonocephaly is a relatively rare deformity of the skull characterized by triangular prominence of the bones of the forehead and orbital hypotelorism. Long-term results in a group of patients with clinical and radiographic follow-up are analyzed, the radiographic findings reviewed, and possible etiologies discussed. The etiologic relationship between(More)
The radiologic findings in the lungs of 16 hospitalized neonates with disseminated herpes simplex infection were retrospectively reviewed. A sequential picture was devised of four stages in the evolution of the pneumonitis of this hematogenous infection. The radiologic stages were: Stage I, normal chest; Stage II, prominent perihilar interstitial markings;(More)
