The aim of our study was to compare noncontrast spiral CT, US and intravenous urography (IVU) in the evaluation of patients with renal colic for the diagnosis of ureteral calculi. During a period of 17 months, 112 patients with renal colic were examined with spiral CT, US and IVU. Fifteen patients were lost to follow-up and excluded. The remaining 97(More)
We conducted this study to investigate the value of primary stent implantation for the endovascular treatment of focal atherosclerotic stenoses of the infrarenal abdominal aorta. The data of 13 patients with a localized complex infrarenal aortic stenosis who underwent primary stenting was retrospectively evaluated. The patients (6 females, 7 males) had a(More)
Background: The purpose of this study is to describe the ultrasonographic (US), computed tomographic (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in fascioliasis and to emphasize the impact of radiology in diagnosis. Methods: Radiologic findings in 23 consecutive patients with fascioliasis were prospectively recorded. All patients had at least one US(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the value of subintimal angioplasty (SA) and selective stent placement in the treatment of long (> or =15 cm) superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusions. MATERIALS AND METHODS During a period of 4.5 years, 67 long SFA occlusions in 61 patients (52 male, 9 female) were intended to be treated with SA, either retrogradely (n = 55) or(More)
Most accessory ossicles and sesamoid bones of the ankle and the foot remain asymptomatic; however, they have increasingly been examined in the radiology literature, because they can cause painful syndromes or degenerative changes in response to overuse and trauma. Our aim was to document a detailed investigation on the accessory ossicles and sesamoid bones(More)
Purpose: To investigate the value of the retrograde popliteal artery approach for the percutaneous intentional extraluminal recanalization (PIER) of long superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusions. Methods: During a period of 17 months, PIER through ultrasound-guided retrograde popliteal artery puncture was performed for 39 long SFA occlusions in 37(More)
PURPOSE To present the early and long-term results of aortoiliac kissing stents implantation and evaluate the risk factors affecting patency. METHODS The data were retrospectively reviewed on 68 patients (64 men; mean age 55+/-11, range 32-77) who underwent kissing stents implantation during a 12-year period. The majority of patients (64, 94%) had(More)
We retrospectively evaluated computed tomography angiography (CTA) and perfusion imaging (CTP) of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) for any correlation between degree of vasospasm and perfusion deficit. Sequentially performed CTP and CTA of 41 patients at least at the third day of postbleeding were reviewed for vasospasm and perfusion(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the long-term angiographic outcome of surgically treated aneurysms. In addition, the incidence of recurrent aneurysms, the fate of residual aneurysms and the de novo formation of aneurysms were evaluated. Moreover, morphological conditions such as dilatation, stenosis or irregularity in temporarily clipped vascular(More)
