INTRODUCTION Soft-tissue perineuriomas are rare benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors in the subcutis of the extremities and the trunks of young patients. To our knowledge, this the first presentation of the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of a soft-tissue perineurioma in the retroperitoneum with pathologic correlation. CASE(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and potential usefulness of unenhanced magnetic resonance (MR) hepatic portal perfusion using arterial spin labeling (ASL) among healthy volunteers and hepatocellular carcinoma patients. The five healthy volunteers underwent unenhanced MR perfusion with inversion time 2 (TI2) values at 500-ms(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate a coaxial needle technique for direct percutaneous puncture embolization of type II endoleaks. TECHNIQUE The technique is demonstrated in a 79-year-old woman and an 80-year-old man who developed type II endoleaks after endovascular repair of thoracic and internal iliac artery aneurysms, respectively. Expansion of the aneurysms(More)
Congenital aneurysms of the thoracic venous system are rare. In particular, innominate venous aneurysms are extremely rare. We describe a 16-year-old girl whose chest x-ray suggested a mediastinal tumor. Three-dimensional contrast-enhancement magnetic resonance venography showed a giant sacciform aneurysm of the left innominate vein and dilatation of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Alexander disease is a rare disorder resulting from a glial fibrillary acidic protein gene mutation which causes progressive degeneration of white matter. With the usual poor prognosis, there are few case reports with long-term follow-up. We report the five-year clinical course of Alexander disease in one case using serial magnetic resonance(More)
Renal AML complicating tuberous sclerosis shows a rapid growth and its rupture is frequently associated with hemorrhagic shock as a result of profuse retroperitoneal bleeding, necessitating an aggressive therapeutic approach. This report describes the long-term clinical progress of 28 year-old woman with tuberous sclerosis with a ruptured giant AML that(More)
BACKGROUND Total arch replacement and ascending aorta and arch replacement are the gold standard treatments for aortic arch aneurysm and are possible treatment strategies for chronic type A dissection, with good reported outcomes. However, because total arch replacement is extremely invasive, it can be difficult to perform in some patients. We designed an(More)
We report the case of a 40-year-old woman with posttraumatic arteriovenous fistula of the right radialis indicis artery. The patient was admitted because a pulsatile lesion appeared on her hand after blunt trauma. Liquid sclerotherapy using 3% polidocanol in combination with distal protection using the rubber band technique was undertaken, which resulted in(More)
Pulmonary artery sarcoma (PAS) is a rare and lethal neoplasm that is usually diagnosed during surgery or autopsy. Early diagnosis and radical surgical resection offer the only chance for survival. However, making a preoperative histopathological diagnosis is quite difficult. We encountered a 57-year-old woman presenting a PAS that mimicked a pulmonary(More)
