OBJECTIVES This study evaluated the feasibility and outcomes of percutaneous transhepatic balloon angioplasty (PTBA) of the hepatic vein in the management of Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) secondary to hepatic venous outflow obstruction. METHODS From September 1996 to October 2008, 101 patients (52 males, 49 females) with BCS secondary to occlusion of the(More)
From May 2003 to May 2010, a total of 9 patients with severe hemobilia after percutaneous transhepatic cholangial drainage (PTCD) were diagnosed using superselective angiography and cholangiography, and then were treated with interventional procedures. Two patients with hepatic arterio-biliary fistula underwent proximal and distal arterial embolization of(More)
OBJECTIVES Pulmonary embolism (PE) is one of the major complications after percutaneous balloon angioplasty (PTBA) for Budd-Chiari's syndrome (BCS). The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of warfarin pre-treatment in the prevention of PE after PTBA in patients with large inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombus. PATIENTS AND METHODS From October(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of multimodal reperfusion therapy (MMRT) for tandem internal carotid artery and middle cerebral arterial (TIM) occlusions. Cases of TIM occlusion were collected and retrospectively reviewed. The analyzed objects included etiology, sites of tandem occlusion, collateral flow, location and size of(More)
BACKGROUND Endovascular recanalization and stenting has been used to treat patients with symptomatic nonacute intracranial vertebrobasilar artery occlusion (VBAO) refractory to aggressive medical treatment. This study was performed to analyze the perioperative complications of the procedures. METHODS Between February 2010 and March 2012, 27 consecutive(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the technical feasibility, safety and short-term treatment effects of recanalization and stenting for intracranial symptomatic vertebrobasilar artery occlusion (VBAO) lasting more than 24h. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty-one consecutive patients with VBAO refractory to aggressive medical treatment were enrolled into this study and(More)
Basilar artery dissection is a rare disease with high morbidity and mortality. No well-established management strategy exists for this lesion. Endovascular reconstructive therapy using stents (with or without coiling) may be the optimum strategy.We describe our center's experience for this treatment strategy in 21 patients with basilar artery dissection(More)
