PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical effect of therapeutic embolization in the pelvic congestion syndrome caused by ovarian varices. MATERIAL AND METHODS Six women, aged 25-40 years, with pelvic pain syndrome and marked left (n = 5) or bilateral (n = 1) ovarian varicocele were treated by transcatheter retrograde venous embolization.(More)
Splenic artery embolization with steel coils was performed in two patients who both had large splenic artery aneurysms and hepatic cirrhosis complicated by hypersplenism. A good clinical effect was noticed after the procedure. It was concluded that this treatment is safe and effective and decreases the risk of splenic artery rupture. It also corrects(More)
Prognosis of 16 patients with hepatic tumors and angiographically proven arterioportal fistulas was analysed in relation to treatment. Six patients received only conservative therapy; they all died of variceal bleeding in the course of two months after angiography. Hepatic resection was performed in four patients; three of them are still alive 13-52 months(More)
Hepatic artery aneurysm (HAA) was diagnosed in a 62-year-old man who was a poor candidate for surgery because of severe liver cirrhosis and diabetes mellitus. Two attempts to occlude the HAA by transcatheter embolization failed because of recanalization of the aneurysm. Moreover, aneurysmal dilatation of the superior mesenteric artery and the left renal(More)
A comparative estimation of the effectiveness of hemostasis by means of ligation of the internal iliac arteries and roentgen-endovascular occlusion of these vessels was carried out in 30 patients with a bleeding carcinoma of the urinary bladder and prostate growing into its wall. For the occlusion of the internal iliac artery metallic spirals were used in(More)
Angiograms demonstrated arterio-portal shunts in tumors of the liver in 15 patients. Five patients received symptomatic therapy, all of them died from hemorrhage from varicose esophageal veins in the immediate 2 months. Resection of the liver was performed in 4 patients, 3 of them are alive and in a state of remission. Esophageal hemorrhage developed only(More)
The authors share their experiences with performing arteriography in 33 patients with spread atherosclerotic occlusions of the iliac vessels. When the traditional accesses were not possible, accesses through the explant (in 22 patients) and the occluded artery (in 11 patients) were used. Investigations with the simultaneous portional administration of(More)
