To assess the relative efficacy of empiric gastroduodenal artery (GDA) embolization in reducing recurrent hemorrhage compared to image-guided targeted embolization. Data were retrospectively collected for consecutive patients who had catheter angiography for major upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage from May 2008 to November 2010 (n = 40). The total number of(More)
A 47-year-old woman with a history of myomectomies and uterine artery embolization 15 years previously presented with increasing menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated multiple enhancing fibroids, extensive uterine supply from what appeared to be patent uterine arteries, and significant supply from what appeared to be(More)
Aortoenteric fistula (AEF) is an uncommon but serious complication occurring after aortic surgery and may occur at any site in the gastrointestinal tract, with the duodenum being the most common. Conventional surgical repair of secondary AEF has high mortality, whereas endovascular repair has emerged as an alternative treatment despite concerns about(More)
The authors describe their initial experience with the adjunctive use of Glubran 2, a cyanoacrylate glue, in the embolization of the internal iliac artery (IIA). Glubran 2 was used in five patients as an adjunct to traditional techniques in the repair of isolated IIA aneurysms and to prevent retrograde perfusion of the aneurysm sac in the endovascular(More)
We study the impact of an innovative program in the Indian state of Bihar that aimed to reduce the gender gap in secondary school enrollment by providing girls who continued to secondary school with a bicycle that would improve access to school. Using data from a large representative household survey, we employ a triple difference approach (using boys and(More)
To report the long-term outcomes of bovine ureter grafts as novel conduits for haemodialysis fistulas. Thirty-five patients underwent placement of a total of 40 SynerGraft 100 (SG100; CryoLife Europa®, Guildford, UK) bovine ureter grafts between April 2002 and February 2009. Prospective data were collected on all patients, including active surveillance with(More)
