PURPOSE Hypogastric artery embolization is considered to be necessary to prevent retrograde flow and potential endoleaks when a stent-graft crosses the origin of the hypogastric artery. The authors assess the incidence of buttock claudication, which is the primary complication encountered. The effect of coil location and the presence of antegrade flow at(More)
BACKGROUND Intra-arterial thrombolytic therapy is currently a therapeutic option for the treatment of acute limb ischemia. A recent large prospective randomized trial (TOPAS) comparing lytic therapy and operative intervention showed that both forms of treatment had similar results in terms of amputation-free survival. However, the exact role for lytic(More)
OBJECTIVE Transfemorally placed endoluminal grafts are currently being evaluated as an alternative to open surgery for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms. We determined the value of helical CT for the follow-up of patients treated with this new procedure. The purposes of this study were to determine CT features of a technically successful(More)
In this work we present a methodology for the investigation of costs of cancer treatment by radiotherapy, aiming to reduce the undesired effects of radiation and to obtain better results of the treatment. The tumor growth is simulated by using a mathematical model composed of three ordinary diferential equations corresponding to the population of Normal(More)
PURPOSE Significant disease or occlusion of the common femoral artery may preclude percutaneous therapy for aorto-iliac occlusive disease. In addition, aorto-iliac angioplasty may not reverse the ischemic symptoms when common femoral artery disease exists. The authors describe the feasibility of endoluminal stent-grafts to treat multilevel aortoiliofemoral(More)
Functional and anatomic evaluation of penile arterial blood flow is essential in the work up of erectile dysfunction. Duplex ultrasonography is an ideal screening modality with cavernosal mean peak systolic blood flow velocity being the most sensitive predictor of arterial disease. Arterial variability of the penis may affect sonographic evaluation leading(More)
