Feasibility and safety of endovascular treatment for chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency in patients with multiple sclerosis

Objective Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a recently discovered syndrome mainly due to stenoses of internal jugular (IJV) and/or azygos (AZ) veins. The present study retrospectively evaluates the feasibility and safety of endovascular treatment for CCSVI in a cohort of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Methods From September 2010 to October 2012, 1202 consecutive…

Early and five-year amputation and survival rate of diabetic patients with critical limb ischemia: data of a cohort study of 564 patients.

In diabetic patients with CLI the revascularization is feasible in most cases and allows a low rate of early major amputation. This rate is higher in the follow-up period. Major amputation is very high in patients where revascularization is not feasible while the high mortality rate is due to the serious comorbidities observed in these…

Stent explantation from an arteriovenous fistula for hemodialysis: a case report.

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty is the first treatment of a dysfunctional vascular azdg for hemodialysis. A case of stenting of a native arteriovenous hemodialysis fistula is reported that was treated with a stent placement at the anastomosis level, with explantation of the stent after complete thrombosis of the fistula 48 hours after the procedure. It is…

Application of a new combined guiding technique in RF ablation of subphrenic liver tumors.

We present an unreported technique used to treat with RF ablation hepatic subphrenic hepatocellular dating your first love twice carcinoma. It consists in the combination of fluoroscopic and computed tomography guidance for lesions already embolized with lipiodol located at the hepatic dome, approached in parallel fashion with a 22-gauge chiba “finder” needle followed by the…

Treatment of uterine fibromyoma with bilateral uterine artery embolization: state of the art

Uterine fibroids are common tumors of the female pelvis. Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a minimally invasive alternative procedure in appropriate candidates to conventional myomectomy and hysterectomy for symptomatic uterine leiomyoma, reducing or eliminating leiomyoma-related symptoms of bleeding, bulk, and/or pain. In order to completely block the arterial blood supply to the fibroid, UAE is…

Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm treated using stent-graft implantation and retrograde gastroduodenal artery coil embolization.

Endovascular treatment options for visceral artery pseudoaneurysms depend on lesion location and size. Exclusion methods fall into two categories, embolization and stent placement, and these procedures aim to exclude the pseudoaneurysm from the circulation and if possible to maintain distal blood flow. Embolization of the afferent artery can be used in pseudoaneurysms that arise from…
