BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Low-profile self-expandable stents were recently introduced for the treatment of wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. This study investigated the initial and midterm clinical and angiographic results of LEO Baby stent-assisted coiling in the treatment of wide-neck intracranial aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review was(More)
OBJECTIVE Percutaneous treatment of hydatid cysts is relatively new, and the data related to it are limited. The purpose of this study was to provide additional data to strengthen the proof of its effectiveness. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One hundred sixty-eight hepatic cysts in 111 patients were treated using a percutaneous approach under sonographic and(More)
Chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis is an unusual inflammatory process of unknown origin involving multiple osseous sites, often recurrently. Selective immunoglobulin M (IgM) deficiency is a rare primary immunodeficiency disease, which can be associated with autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, Hashimoto's disease, or hemolytic(More)
We present the MR imaging findings in an autopsy-proven case of selective neuronal necrosis involving the entire left cerebral hemispheric cortex, left thalamus, and contralateral cerebellum following a period of status epilepticus. Imaging findings include diffusion abnormality on diffusion-weighted images and increased intensity on T2-weighted images in(More)
The mortality in undrained abdominal abscesses is high with a mortality rate ranging between 45 and 100%. The outcome in abdominal abscesses, however, has improved due to advances in image guided percutaneous interventional techniques. The main indications for the catheter drainage include treatment or palliation of sepsis associated with an infected fluid(More)
BACKGROUND Carotid angioplasty and stenting is gaining popularity as an alternative to carotid endarterectomy for the treatment of carotid bifurcation stenosis. The major concern with the procedure is the risk of embolic stroke which may be initiated by balloon angioplasty of friable atherosclerotic plaque. Elimination of angioplasty may result in a lower(More)
Narrow duplicated internal auditory canal (IAC) is a rare malformation of the temporal bone that is associated with ipsilateral congenital sensorineural hearing loss. This may be an isolated finding or a part of a syndrome. Radiological examination should demonstrate aplasia or hypoplasia of the neural components of the narrow IAC, to guide the surgical(More)
Percutaneous closure of a calyceal fistula following partial nephrectomy for kidney cancer was achieved with fistula embolization with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate. Previous attempts at closure by conservative and endoscopic means were unsuccessful. Tissue adhesives are useful in the management of persistent urinary leakage after partial nephrectomy.
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of percutaneous treatment of giant abdominal hydatid cysts. METHODS In this study, 15 abdominal giant hydatid cysts were treated with the catheterization technique, which included puncture of the cyst, aspiration of fluid, instillation and respiration of hypertonic saline solution, and catheterization(More)
Movement disorders and epilepsy rarely occur in the early stage of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) but have not been reported concurrently. We report on a 47-year-old patient with probable CJD who presented with generalized chorea and focal dystonia with myoclonic jerks on the right hand. Myoclonic jerks progressed to epilepsia partialis continua within 5(More)
