Using vascular structure for CT-SPECT registration in the pelvis. (1/2636)

The authors outline a method for three-dimensional registration of pelvic CT and 111In-labeled monoclonal antibody capromab pendetide (111In MoAb 7E11.C5) images using 99mTc-labeled red blood cell SPECT data. METHODS: This method of CT-SPECT registration relies on the identification of major blood vessels in the CT and 99mTc SPECT images. The vessels are segmented from the image datasets by outlining them on transverse planar slices using a mouse-based drawing tool. Stacking the transverse outlines provides a three-dimensional representation of the vascular structures. Registration is performed by matching the surfaces of the segmented volumes. Dual isotope acquisition of 111In and 99mTc activities provides precise SPECT-SPECT registration so that registration in three dimensions of the 111In MoAb and CT images is achieved by applying the same transformation obtained from the 99mTc SPECT-CT registration. RESULTS: This method provided accurate registration of pelvic structures and significantly improved interpretation of 111In MoAb 7E11.C5 exams. Furthermore, sites of involvement by prostate cancer suggested by the 111In MoAb examination could be interpreted with the bony and soft tissue (nodal) anatomy seen on CT. CONCLUSION: This method is a general clinical tool for the registration of pelvic CT and SPECT imaging data. There are immediate applications in conformal radiation therapy treatment planning for certain prostate cancer patients.  (+info)

Disease pattern in cranial and large-vessel giant cell arteritis. (2/2636)

OBJECTIVE: To identify variables that distinguish large-vessel giant cell arteritis (GCA) with subclavian/axillary/brachial artery involvement from cranial GCA. METHODS: Seventy-four case patients with subclavian/axillary GCA diagnosed by angiography and 74 control patients with temporal artery biopsy-proven GCA without large vessel involvement matched for the date of first diagnosis were identified. Pertinent initial symptoms, time delay until diagnosis, and clinical symptoms, as well as clinical and laboratory findings at the time of diagnosis, were recorded by retrospective chart review. Expression of cytokine messenger RNA in temporal artery tissue from patients with large-vessel and cranial GCA was determined by semiquantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis. Distribution of disease-associated HLA-DRB1 alleles in patients with aortic arch syndrome and cranial GCA was assessed. RESULTS: The clinical presentation distinguished patients with large-vessel GCA from those with classic cranial GCA. Upper extremity vascular insufficiency dominated the clinical presentation of patients with large-vessel GCA, whereas symptoms related to impaired cranial blood flow were infrequent. Temporal artery biopsy findings were negative in 42% of patients with large-vessel GCA. Polymyalgia rheumatica occurred with similar frequency in both patient groups. Large-vessel GCA was associated with higher concentrations of interleukin-2 gene transcripts in arterial tissue and overrepresentation of the HLA-DRB1*0404 allele, indicating differences in pathogenetic mechanisms. CONCLUSION: GCA is not a single entity but includes several variants of disease. Large-vessel GCA produces a distinct spectrum of clinical manifestations and often occurs without involvement of the cranial arteries. Large-vessel GCA requires a different approach to the diagnosis and probably also to treatment.  (+info)

3D angiography. Clinical interest. First applications in interventional neuroradiology. (3/2636)

3D angiography is a true technical revolution that allows improvement in the quality and safety of diagnostic and endovascular treatment procedures. 3D angiography images are obtained by reconstruction of a rotational angiography acquisition done on a C-arm (GE Medical Systems) spinning at 40 degrees per second. The carotid or vertebral selective injection of a total of 15 ml of non-ionic contrast media at 3 ml/sec over 5 seconds allows the selection of the "arterial phase". Four hundred sixty 3D angiographic studies were performed from December 1996 to September 1998 on 260 patients and have been analyzed in MIP (Maximum Intensity Projection) and SSD (Shaded Surface Display) views. The exploration of intracranial aneurysms is simplified and only requires, for each vascular axis, a biplane PA and Lateral run followed by a single rotational angiography run. The 3D angiography image is available on the workstation's screen (Advantage Workstation 3.1, GE Medical Systems) in less than 10 minutes after the acquisition of the rotational run. It therefore allows one to analyze, during the intervention, the aneurysm's angioarchitecture, in particular the neck, and select the best therapeutic technique. When endovascular treatment is the best indication, 3D angiography allows one to define the optimal angle of view and accurately select the microcoils dimensions. 3D angiography replaces the multiple oblique views that used to be required to analyze the complex aneurysms and therefore allows a reduction of the total contrast medium quantity, the patient X-ray dose and the length of the intervention time which is a safety factor. Also, in particular for complex cases, it brings additional elements complementing the results of standard 2D DSA and rotational angiograms. In the cervical vascular pathology, 3D angiography allows for a better assessment of the stenosis level and of dissection lesions. Our current research activities focus on the matching without stereotactic frame between 3D X-ray angiography and volumetric MR acquisition, which should allow us to improve the treatment of intracerebral arterio-venous malformations (AVMs).  (+info)

Prevalence of angiographic atherosclerotic renal artery disease and its relationship to the anatomical extent of peripheral vascular atherosclerosis. (4/2636)

BACKGROUND: Recognition of the possible presence of atherosclerotic renal artery disease (ARAD) is important because of its progressive nature, and because of the potential for precipitating an acute deterioration in renal function by administration of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of ARAD in patients undergoing peripheral angiography and its relationship to the extent of their peripheral vascular disease (PVD). METHODS: The reports of the 218 patients who underwent peripheral angiography to investigate PVD in one centre in a calendar year, and in whom it was possible to image the renal arteries, were analysed retrospectively. The presence of atherosclerotic disease in the renal, aortic, iliac, femoral and distal areas was recorded for each patient. RESULTS: The prevalence of ARAD was 79/218 (36.2%). The greater the number of atherosclerotic areas of the arterial tree, the higher the prevalence of ARAD. Patients with aortic disease and bilateral iliac, femoral and distal vessel disease had the highest incidence of ARAD 19/38 (50%). The incidence of ARAD in those with femoral artery atherosclerosis was significantly higher than in those without femoral artery atherosclerosis (42.1% compared with 9.7%, P=0.001 chi2). There was no significant difference in those groups with or without iliac and distal disease. None of the 11 patients with normal femoral and iliac arteries had ARAD. CONCLUSIONS: Renal artery atherosclerosis is a common occurrence in patients with PVD. If extensive PVD is recognized during aortography, a high flush should be considered to examine the renal arteries, if they are not included in the main study.  (+info)

Medullary thyroid carcinoma with multiple hepatic metastases: treatment with transcatheter arterial embolization and percutaneous ethanol injection. (5/2636)

A 54-year-old man with medullary thyroid carcinoma in the thyroid gland was unable to undergo total thyroidectomy because the tumor had invaded the mediastinum. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy were given. Seven years later, intractable diarrhea and abdominal pain appeared, and computed tomography demonstrated hypervascular tumors in the thyroid gland and in the liver. The tumors were successfully treated with percutaneous ethanol injection to a lesion in the thyroid gland and transcatheter arterial embolization followed by percutaneous ethanol injection to tumors in the liver. Transcatheter arterial embolization and percutaneous ethanol injection may be valuable in treating medullary thyroid carcinoma.  (+info)

Late massive haemoptyses from bronchopulmonary collaterals in infarcted segments following pulmonary embolism. (6/2636)

Massive, recurrent haemoptyses requiring blood transfusions occurred in a patient who had been diagnosed as having pulmonary thromboembolism 3 months earlier. To the authors' knowledge this is the first case report of this kind, in which massive haemoptyses were proved to be caused by large bronchopulmonary collaterals that had developed in the infarcted lung segments affected by embolism. Selective embolization of the collaterals proved to be therapeutic and life saving.  (+info)

Plaque area increase and vascular remodeling contribute to lumen area change after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the femoropopliteal artery: an intravascular ultrasound study. (7/2636)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to assess the change in lumen area (LA), plaque area (PLA), and vessel area (VA) after percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the femoropopliteal artery. METHODS: This was a prospective study. Twenty patients were studied with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) immediately after PTA and at follow-up examination. Multiple corresponding IVUS cross-sections were analyzed at the segments that were dilated by PTA (ie, treated sites; n = 168), including the most stenotic site (n = 20) and the nondilated segments (ie, reference sites; n = 77). RESULTS: At follow-up examination, both the PLA increase (13%) and the VA decrease (9%) resulted in a significant LA decrease (43%) at the most stenotic sites (P =.001). At the treated sites, the LA decrease (15%) was smaller and was caused by the PLA increase (15%). At the reference sites, the PLA increase (15%) and the VA increase (6%) resulted in a slight LA decrease (3%). An analysis of the IVUS cross-sections that were grouped according to LA change (difference >/=10%) revealed a similar PLA increase in all the groups: the type of vascular remodeling (VA decrease, no change, or increase) determined the LA change. At the treated sites, the LA change and the VA change correlated closely (r = 0.77, P <.001). At the treated sites, significantly more PLA increase was seen in the IVUS cross-sections that showed hard lesion or media rupture (P <.05). No relationship was found between the presence of dissection and the quantitative changes. CONCLUSION: At the most stenotic sites, lumen narrowing was caused by plaque increase and vessel shrinkage. Both the treated sites and the reference sites showed a significant PLA increase: the type of vascular remodeling determined the LA change at follow-up examination. The extent of the PLA increase was significantly larger in the IVUS cross-sections that showed hard lesion or media rupture.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical analysis of arterial wall cellular infiltration in Buerger's disease (endarteritis obliterans). (8/2636)

PURPOSE: The diagnosis of Buerger's disease has depended on clinical symptoms and angiographic findings, whereas pathologic findings are considered to be of secondary importance. Arteries from patients with Buerger's tissue were analyzed histologically, including immunophenotyping of the infiltrating cells, to elucidate the nature of Buerger's disease as a vasculitis. METHODS: Thirty-three specimens from nine patients, in whom Buerger's disease was diagnosed on the basis of our clinical and angiographic criteria between 1980 and 1995 at Nagoya University Hospital, were studied. Immunohistochemical studies were performed on paraffin-embedded tissue with a labeled streptoavidin-biotin method. RESULTS: The general architecture of vessel walls was well preserved regardless of the stage of disease, and cell infiltration was observed mainly in the thrombus and the intima. Among infiltrating cells, CD3(+) T cells greatly outnumbered CD20(+) B cells. CD68(+) macrophages or S-100(+) dendritic cells were detected, especially in the intima during acute and subacute stages. All cases except one showed infiltration by the human leukocyte antigen-D region (HLA-DR) antigen-bearing macrophages and dendritic cells in the intima. Immunoglobulins G, A, and M (IgG, IgA, IgM) and complement factors 3d and 4c (C3d, C4c) were deposited along the internal elastic lamina. CONCLUSION: Buerger's disease is strictly an endarteritis that is introduced by T-cell mediated cellular immunity and by B-cell mediated humoral immunity associated with activation of macrophages or dendritic cells in the intima.  (+info)

Difference between angiogram and arteriogram - Almost the same. An angiogram is generic meaning, a study of blood vessels, but is typically used almost synonymously with arteriogram. A venogram is when you inject dye to study veins (veins carry blood back to your heart) An arteriogram is when you inject arteries the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to various body parts.

The operation known as angio by people is carried out for diagnosis (angiography) and for treatment. Angiography means the imaging of the veins and arteries. A drug called contrast substance that makes the veins visible is administered into the veins and films called angiograms are obtained. Thanks to angiography, the veins fostering the organs are imaged and diagnostic information regarding vascular diseases or the organs fostered by those veins are obtained. The classical method for the treatment of angio is angioplasty. It is carried out in order to reopen the narrowed or blocked veins through a special devices called balloon or stent.. In the light of that information, since nothing related to eating and drinking take place in both angiography or angioplasty, fasting is not invalidated. ...

The study addressed a clear research question and the inclusion criteria appeared appropriate. Several sources were searched for relevant studies and attempts were made to limit language bias. The methods used to select studies for inclusion and to abstract the data were not reported, thus the potential for reviewer error and bias could not be assessed. Unpublished data were not sought, although the authors did not find any evidence of publication bias. The quality of the included studies was assessed systematically, in duplicate, and aspects of validity were appropriately discussed.. Adequate details of each of the included studies were given in the report, which highlighted clinical and methodological differences across the studies, suggesting that the decision to statistically combine the studies might not have been appropriate. However, the authors conducted sensitivity analyses to account for some of the differences. The authors conclusion regarding the fact that the role of CTPA without ...
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blockage of the main pulmonary artery or one of its branches by a substance that has travelled from elsewhere in the body through the bloodstream (embolism). Pulmonary embolism (PE) is the third most common cause of cardiovascular related mortality. Numerous diagnostic tools have been utilized in order to improve diagnosis and prompt appropriate treatment. Since the first introduction of Computed Tomography (CT) angiography in the setting of PE diagnosis algorithm, it has rapidly become as the first choice among imaging techniques. However, still there is long way to improve the abilities and lowering the possible hazards and problems. The purpose of this review is to evaluate and summarize the role of imaging tools in diagnosis of PE in suspected patients, with particular focus on CT angiography. We studied different areas related benefits, disagreements and challenges in utilizing CT angiography in the setting of PE diagnosis algorithm. Although CT angiography is still
Angiography or arteriography is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the inside, or lumen, of blood vessels and organs of the body, with particular interest in the arteries, veins and the heart chambers. This is traditionally done by injecting a radio-opaque contrast agent into the blood vessel and imaging using X-ray based techniques such as fluoroscopy. The word itself comes from the Greek words ἀγγεῖον angeion, "vessel", and γράφειν graphein, "to write" or "record". The film or image of the blood vessels is called an angiograph, or more commonly an angiogram. Though the word can describe both an arteriogram and a venogram, in everyday usage the terms angiogram and arteriogram are often used synonymously, whereas the term venogram is used more precisely. The term angiography has been applied to radionuclide angiography and newer vascular imaging techniques such as CT angiography and MR angiography. The term isotope angiography has also been used, although this more ...

Our study uses the largest cohort of patients to date to systematically address the outcome of stroke patients who had negative baseline CT angiography results for arterial occlusion and were treated with tPA. We identified negative baseline CT angiography results as a common finding, occurring in as much as 29% of all our patients admitted with ischemic stroke within 3 hours after symptom onset and meeting the criteria for tPA treatment. Our study showed that only approximately half of these patients achieved a favorable clinical outcome; 15% died. The size of brain parenchyma damage measured as infarction volume on control CT was substantial in our patients. Therefore, we could not demonstrate that normal arterial status or occult occlusion as shown by CT angiography before tPA treatment ensures a generally good prognosis. Our study could not confirm the findings of a previous smaller study that a majority of patients achieve independence if baseline CT angiography results are negative for ...

I read with interest the editorial in Thorax entitled Identification of those at risk after acute pulmonary embolism.1 In the second paragraph, the authors state and reference the inpatient mortality for normotensive patients with acute PE as ∼10%.. My concern is twofold. First it is that readers may surmise that the mortality of acute treated PE is as quoted, when in reality the all-cause out of hospital 3 month mortality of those with PE is 9% in the reference quoted. This level of mortality relates not just to the PE but to the co-morbidities, such as cancer, that this cohort frequently possess. Secondly, in clinical experience it seems a rarity that those even with a large clot burden identified on CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) and without life-threatening co-morbidities do not improve their clinical state once treated with anticoagulation. Do the editors know of any studies that clearly identify the cause of death systematically in those with PE so that we can truly pick out the ...

CT angiography combines a computerized tomography (CT) scan with an injection of contrast material (a special dye) to create images of blood vessels and tissues. The contrast material is injected through an intravenous (IV) line started in the arm or hand. While the contrast material flows through the blood vessels to the various organs, a CT scan is performed. A special computer is used to process and view the images in different planes and projections. CT angiography can help your physician diagnosis a range of conditions including aneurysms, blood clots, injuries and more. ...

P3T PA (pulmonary angiography), from Medrad, is a personalized contrast-dosing software that increases the percentage of diagnostic-quality CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) studies to rule out pulmonary embolism (PE).. Researchers have concluded that suboptimal CTPA interpretations to rule out PE can substantially impact healthcare resource utilization and increase healthcare costs. With 30 percent of their CTPA studies showing suboptimal results, these patients were subjected to additional imaging studies and/or received medical therapy. Some patients were admitted to the hospital for further PE diagnosis considerations. None of the additional treatments or imaging modalities yielded a diagnosis of PE.. P3T PA fits into the established workflow and offers flexibility and efficiency in optimizing each patients contrast dose -- especially when operating higher-speed scanners. The P3T algorithm tailors each patients contrast protocol based on technologists touch-screen responses to unique ...
Our study showed that angiographic vascularity of meningiomas correlated with tumoral CBV and FA. Low-vascularity meningiomas demonstrated significantly lower CBV but higher FA when compared with high-vascularity meningiomas. Our results suggest that CBV and FA of meningiomas could reflect angiographic vascularity of the tumors.. Preoperative angiography evaluation and embolization of meningiomas is currently performed in some institutions, even though its value has not been established by randomized trials.16⇓-18 Two very recent studies reported that patients may benefit from preoperative meningioma embolization. Shah et al17 reviewed 36 studies comprising 459 patients published between 1990-2011; they concluded that embolization may reduce rates of surgical morbidity and mortality in the management of meningiomas. In another study, Borg et al18 reported that complete devascularization resulted in lower blood transfusion requirements in their 107 patients with meningioma operated on between ...
Three-dimensional rotational angiography (3D-RA) is an established method within the field of interventional neuroradiology. The method has also a great potential in other areas with a complicated arterial anatomy. The purpose of this study was firstly to develop an investigative protocol for 3D-RA in renal transplanted patients with threatening allograft failure in diagnosing stenosis in the transplanted renal artery; secondly the protocol was evaluated and compared with a modified protocol including reduced contrast medium load. Furthermore, the advantages of the 3D reconstructions compared to the angiographic images were evaluated, likewise if an extended angle of rotation reduced the artifacts in the 3D reconstructions. The two protocols were compared with regard to image quality and acute nephrotoxicity. The accuracy of Doppler ultrasonography and the result of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) were also assessed.. 3D-RA was consecutively performed in 57 renal transplanted ...

In addition, MRA is helpful in assessing vascular malformations, which occur when blood or lymph vessels fail to develop normally before birth. The affected vessels become tangled and change the normal flow of the blood through the brain. Some patients have headaches and seizures, but others may be asymptomatic. Vascular malformations can cause hemorrhage and subsequent neurologic damage. Lastly, MRA may aid in evaluating some types of headaches.. Compared with catheter angiography, MRA is less invasive, less expensive, and faster to perform. For conventional angiography, a catheter is inserted though the patients groin and threaded up into the artery in the brain. MRA does not require this catheter. As a result, it eliminates related complications such as possible damage to an artery.. In addition, because MRA relies on the natural magnetic properties of hydrogen atoms in the body, injections of contrast material are not always needed. This feature is especially important in patients who have ...

We found that the total mean attenuation values of PAs were significantly higher in group A than in group B (532.7 ± 243 HU vs. 380.6 ± 232 HU, respectively) (Table 2). Additionally, total DLP and effective dose values were significantly lower in group A than in group B. Twenty-one patients (21%) in both groups were detected for PTE.. Pulmonary angiography is the gold standard in the diagnosis of PTE and the sensitivity and specificity of this technique has been reported to be 90% and 94%, respectively (13). Pulmonary angiography is an invasive procedure and is not widely available. On the other hand, CTPA is a non-invasive radiological imaging method using an multi-detector CT (MDCT) device with high sensitivity and specificity, low false negativity or false positivity ratios. CTPA is used widely in daily clinical applications for PTE diagnosis in many clinics (14).. One disadvantage of CTPA is the health risk associated with the radiation dose and amount of CM used. The radiation dose ...

These specialized tests use the CT scanner to take pictures of the brain as a contrast dye is injected into your bloodstream. The dye helps to produce a more detailed image of the blood vessels in the brain.. CT angiography is a less invasive alternative to conventional angiography because the dye is injected through a needle into a vein in your arm or hand. Conventional angiography requires a long, thin tube called a catheter be inserted through an incision in your groin or arm and guided through your arteries to the head.. CT angiography is more accurate than normal CT at determining where the blockage is, how much brain tissue is permanently damaged, and how well smaller vessels are routing blood flow around the blockage.2. A perfusion CT scan uses the dye to produce a map of all the blood in your brain. This can help doctors identify the location of reduced blood flow that is responsible for stroke symptoms. Certain types of perfusion CT can also measure how quickly your blood is moving in ...

PURPOSE: To prospectively compare the accuracy of 16-detector row computed tomographic (CT) angiography with conventional digital subtraction angiography (DSA) as the reference standard in the assessment of aortoiliac and lower extremity arteries in patients with peripheral arterial disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was approved by the institutional review board, and informed consent was obtained. A total of 39 consecutive patients (27 men [mean age, 66 years] and 12 women [mean age, 64 years]) with peripheral arterial disease underwent both conventional DSA and 16-detector row CT angiography. For data analysis, the arterial vascular system was divided into 35 segments. A total of 1365 arterial segments were analyzed for arterial stenosis by two independent blinded readers using a four-point grading system (grade 1, ,10% luminal narrowing; grade 2, 10%-49% luminal narrowing; grade 3, 50%-99% luminal narrowing; grade 4, occlusion). Interobserver agreements were calculated by using kappa ...
To identify patients with spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage for whom CT angiography alone can exclude ruptured aneurysms. An observational retrospective review was carried out of all consecutive patients with non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage who underwent both CT angiography and catheter angiography to exclude an aneurysm. CT angiography negative cases (no aneurysm) were classified according to their CT hemorrhage pattern as aneurismal, perimesencephalic or as no-hemorrhage. Two hundred and forty-one patients were included. A CT angiography aneurysm detection sensitivity and specificity of 96.4% and 96.0% were observed. All 35 cases of perimesencephalic or no-hemorrhage out of 78 CT angiography negatives also had negative angiography findings. CT angiography is self-reliant to exclude ruptured aneurysms when either a perimesencephalic hemorrhage or no-hemorrhage pattern is identified on the CT within a week of symptom onset.
Renal artery stenosis is a common finding in patients with atherosclerotic vascular disease (1). Among patients with renal artery stenosis, more than 90% are atherosclerotic in nature, which typically involves the ostium and the proximal portion of the main renal artery with plaque extending into the peri-renal aorta (1). The prevalence of atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) increases with age, presence of diabetes, peripheral arterial disease, coronary artery disease, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. Fibromuscular dysplasia, a distant second in the etiology of renal artery stenosis accounts for ,10% of cases and is typically seen in young and middle-aged women. As opposed to ARAS, fibromuscular dysplasia usually affects the distal two-thirds of the main renal artery with a characteristic beaded angiographic appearance. Based on epidemiological data, ARAS appears to be a relatively common clinical finding and is present in ∼6.8% of patients over the age of 65 years (2) and in ,50% of ...
A 6 month od baby with Wolfgang-Gollop syndrome was catheterized before surgery for tetralogy of Fallot. Echocardiography had revealed bilateral superior vena cava with LSVC draining into a dilated coronary sinus. In order to assess the need for canulating or ligating the persistent left superior vena cava (LSVC) at time of surgery, we inserted an 5 Fr end-hole catheter into the LSVC via the right atrium and coronary sinus. It was then advanced into the left azygos vein and angiography performed. A large communicating vein connecting the 2 asygos veins was seen beind the heart. Persistent LSVC has been described in tetralogy of Fallot. In our case, although no classical communicating wein could be found by echocardiography, selective angiography revealed a peculiar communication between bilateral azygos veins. The baby underwent successful surgical repair with no need for left superior vena cava cannulation during cardiopulmonary bypass ...
Patients with symptomatic carotid artery occlusive disease rarely undergo arteriography as the first diagnostic test. The most widely used screening modality for noninvasive diagnosis of carotid occlusive disease is duplex Doppler ultrasound. The NASCET investigators found a beneficial effect of carotid endarterectomy for symptomatic patients with ≥70% carotid stenosis, which necessitates the development of duplex criteria appropriate to the results of the trial.. Traditional duplex categories of stenosis (50% to 79%, 80% to 99%) are inadequate to properly identify patients who meet the NASCET criteria. Furthermore, the traditional duplex categories, while based on correlation of duplex and arteriogram data, used an alternative method of arteriographic stenosis measurement to that of NASCET. These former validation studies calculated stenosis using the ratio of the residual lumen of the carotid artery compared with the estimated normal bulb diameter, the method of the European Carotid Surgery ...
RESULTS. There were 27 patients (14 male, 13 female) with a mean age of 62 (range, 44-77) years. There were 10 patients with renal transplants; their native renal arteries were not evaluated. Each of the two experienced interventional and body magnetic resonance radiologists, who were blinded to the results, reviewed the digital subtraction angiography and magnetic resonance angiography images respectively. Digital subtraction angiography was used as the standard of reference. A total of 39 renal arteries from these 27 patients were evaluated. One of the arteries was previously stented and could not be assessed with magnetic resonance angiography due to severe artefacts. Of the remaining 38 renal arteries, two were graded as normal, seven as having mild stenosis (=50% but =75%). Magnetic resonance angiography and digital subtraction angiography were concordant in 89% of the arteries; magnetic resonance angiography overestimated the degree of stenosis in 8% and underestimated it in 3% of them. In ...
In human anatomy, superior epigastric artery refers to a blood vessel that carries oxygenated blood and arises from the internal thoracic artery (referred to as the internal mammary artery in the accompanying diagram). It anastomoses with the inferior epigastric artery at the umbilicus and supplies the anterior part of the abdominal wall and some of the diaphragm. Along its course, it is accompanied by a similarly named vein, the superior epigastric vein. The superior epigastric arteries, inferior epigastric arteries, internal thoracic arteries and left subclavian artery and right subclavian artery / brachiocephalic are collateral vessels to the thoracic aorta and abdominal aorta. If the abdominal aorta develops a significant stenosis and/or blockage (as may be caused by atherosclerosis), this collateral pathway may develop sufficiently, over time, to supply blood to the lower limbs. A congenitally narrowed aorta, due to coarctation, is often associated with a significant enlargement of the ...
