Atelectasis Is a Major Cause of Hypoxemia and Shunt after Cardiopulmonary Bypass
Atelectasis is produced to a much larger extent after CPB than after anesthesia alone or with sternotomy and it explains most of the marked post‐CPB increase in shunt and hypoxemia. Expand
Clinical and radiologic features of pulmonary edema.
Pulmonary edema may be classified as increased hydrostatic pressure edema, permeability edema with diffuse alveolar damage (DAD), permeability edema without DAD, or mixed edema. Pulmonary edema hasExpand
Morbid Obesity and Postoperative Pulmonary Atelectasis: An Underestimated Problem
Perturbation of respiratory mechanics produced by general anesthesia and surgery is more pronounced in morbidly obese (MO) patients, and general anesthesia in MO patients generated much more atelectasis than in nonobese patients. Expand
Assessment of coronary remodeling in stenotic and nonstenotic coronary atherosclerotic lesions by multidetector spiral computed tomography.
Investigation of whether contrast-enhanced multidetector spiral CT permits assessment of remodeling in coronary atherosclerotic lesions finds that this ability to assess remodeling may be tolerated in selected data sets of sufficient quality. Expand
Segmental arterial mediolysis: clinical and imaging features at presentation and during follow-up.
SAM affects middle-aged and elderly patients andVisceral artery dissections and aneurysms are common and the disease progresses in nearly half the patients, and Serial follow-up with computed tomographic angiography and/or magnetic resonanceAngiography may be necessary to monitor disease progression.

Angiogenesis and current antiangiogenic strategies for the treatment of cancer.
This review summarizes the essential features of angiogenesis and discusses therapeutic strategies that have been applied to specific diseases known to be associated with perturbation of normal angiogenic control. Expand
May-Thurner syndrome: can it be diagnosed by a single MR venography study?
The compressed LCIV on a single MRV study was not stable over time and thus may be insufficient to diagnose May-Thurner syndrome, and the degree of venous compression was calculated in both the index and comparison study. Expand
Clinical practice guidelines for endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair: written by the Standards of Practice Committee for the Society of Interventional Radiology and endorsed by the

Clinical Sequelae of Thrombus in an Inferior Vena Cava Filter
Asymptomatic thrombus in the filter is common and it rarely progresses to complete caval occlusion, and anticoagulation has little effect on the resolution of filter thrombosis and future occurrence of PE. Expand
Venous thromboembolism: indirect CT venography during CT pulmonary angiography--should the pelvis be imaged?
CT venography of the pelvis during CT pulmonary angiography does not significantly improve the detection of VTE, and CT venography may be limited to the lower extremities, thus reducing radiation dose. Expand
