Renal fusion anomalies, in which both kidneys are fused togeher in early embyronic life, are rarely encountered. Once a fused kidney is diagnosed or suspected, further laboratory and imaging evaluation should be performed to assess the status of the kidneys and to look for treatable causes of renal pathology. The early dignosis of potential complications(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of 16-slice multidetector computed tomographic (MDCT) angiography for identifying anatomic features of aberrant subclavian arteries. Seventeen patients with aberrant subclavian arteries were assessed by MDCT angiography. The aortic arch position, the presence of a Kommerell's diverticulum, aneurysm,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for preoperative staging of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) using the 1997 TNM (tumor, node, metastasis) classification. MATERIALS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of MDCT in 57 consecutive patients with RCC performed for tumor staging before radical (n = 51)(More)
Inferior mesenteric arteriovenous fistula is rare and may be congenital or acquired. Two serious manifestations may occur in the course of the disease: portal hypertension and bowel ischemia. The diagnosis is generally established by conventional angiography. In this report, we present a case with multiple inferior mesenteric arteriovenous fistulas,(More)
In the angiography performed for a clinical diagnosis, a unique case of "agenesis of the celiac trunk" was encountered in a 42-year-old Turkish male. There was instead an artery which arose from the aorta at the level of the first lumbar vertebra, and supplied blood to the territory of both the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries by giving rise to the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the diagnostic accuracy and limitations of 16-slice multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in the detection of significant ( > 50%) stenosis of coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) and native coronary arteries. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred two patients with 236 grafts were investigated by 16-slice MDCT. Native coronary(More)
Cake (fused pelvic) kidney is an uncommon congenital anomaly. Early diagnosis and recognition of potential complications that may accompany this anomaly are important to prevent permanent renal impairment. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on a case of cake kidney that was diagnosed by multidetector row computed tomographic urography.
PURPOSE This study was conducted to determine how the hemodynamic parameters of the superior mesenteric artery are affected in small bowel diseases. METHODS One hundred thirty-seven patients whose clinical symptoms suggested an intestinal abnormality were evaluated with duplex Doppler sonography. The control group comprised 42 subjects recruited from the(More)
BACKGROUND Multidetector computed tomography angiography has emerged as a rapidly developing method for the noninvasive detection of coronary artery disease. PURPOSE To investigate the diagnostic accuracy and limitations of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in the detection of significantly (> 50%) obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) using a(More)
The management of biliary disorders in patients with Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy anastomosis is challenging and remains controversial. Our aim is to share our experiences of endoscopic treatment via a permanent access loop in 5 patients. Endoscopic treatment via a permanent access loop is an invaluable procedure for the management of stenotic(More)
