A type of surgical portasystemic shunt to reduce portal hypertension with associated complications of esophageal varices and ascites. It is performed percutaneously through the jugular vein and involves the creation of an intrahepatic shunt between the hepatic vein and portal vein. The channel is maintained by a metallic stent. The procedure can be performed in patients who have failed sclerotherapy and is an additional option to the surgical techniques of portocaval, mesocaval, and splenorenal shunts. It takes one to three hours to perform. (JAMA 1995;273(23):1824-30)
Longitudinal cavities in the spinal cord, most often in the cervical region, which may extend for multiple spinal levels. The cavities are lined by dense, gliogenous tissue and may be associated with SPINAL CORD NEOPLASMS; spinal cord traumatic injuries; and vascular malformations. Syringomyelia is marked clinically by pain and PARESTHESIA, muscular atrophy of the hands, and analgesia with thermoanesthesia of the hands and arms, but with the tactile sense preserved (sensory dissociation). Lower extremity spasticity and incontinence may also develop. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1269)

Managing Budd-Chiari syndrome: a retrospective review of percutaneous hepatic vein angioplasty and surgical shunting. (1/234)

BACKGROUND: The role of percutaneous hepatic vein angioplasty in the management of Budd-Chiari syndrome has not been well defined. Over a 10 year period at our unit, we have often used this technique in cases of short length hepatic vein stenosis or occlusion, reserving surgical mesocaval shunting for cases of diffuse hepatic vein occlusion or failed angioplasty. AIMS: To review the outcome of angioplasty and surgical shunting to define their respective roles. PATIENTS: All patients treated by angioplasty or surgical shunting for non-malignant hepatic vein obstruction over a ten year period from 1987 to 1996. METHODS: A case note review of pretreatment features and clinical outcome. RESULTS: Angioplasty was attempted in 21 patients with patent hepatic vein branches and was successful in 18; in three patients treatment was unsuccessful and these patients had surgical shunts. Fifteen patients were treated by surgical shunting only. Mortality according to definitive treatment was 3/18 following angioplasty and 8/18 following surgery; in most cases this reflected high risk status prior to treatment. Venous or shunt reocclusion rates were similar for both groups and were associated with subtherapeutic warfarin in half of these cases. Most surviving patients in both groups are asymptomatic although one surgical patient has chronic hepatic encephalopathy. CONCLUSION: With appropriate case selection, many patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome caused by short length hepatic vein stenosis or occlusion may be managed successfully by angioplasty alone. Medium term outcome is good following this procedure provided that anticoagulation is maintained. Further follow up is required to assess for definitive benefits but we suggest that this should be included as a valid initial approach in the algorithm for management of Budd-Chiari syndrome.  (+info)

Results of surgical treatment (modified Sugiura-Futagawa operation) of portal hypertension associated to complete splenomesoportal thrombosis and cirrhosis. (2/234)

BACKGROUND: Hemorrhagic portal hypertension, secondary to both intrahepatic and extrahepatic portal hypertension, is an uncommon entity. In this condition, the extrahepatic and the intrahepatic obstruction of the portal vein, due to chronic liver disease, produce a more severe form of hemorrhagic portal hypertension that is more difficult to control. The results of surgical treatment (modified Sugiura-Futagawa operation) in this subset of patients is analyzed. METHODS: Among 714 patients with a history of hemorrhagic portal hypertension, 14 cases were found with histologically proven liver cirrhosis and complete splenomesoportal thrombosis demonstrated by means of preoperative angiography. Patients with incomplete (partial) splenomesoportal thrombosis were excluded. There were nine males and 5 females with a mean age of 51 years. Alcoholic cirrhosis was demonstrated in 50% of the cases, post hepatitic cirrhosis in 28%, primary biliary cirrhosis in 7%, and cryptogenic cirrhosis in 14%. There were nine Child-Pugh A and 5 B cases. All cases were treated by means of our modified Sugiura-Futagawa procedure. RESULTS: Bleeding recurrence from esophagogastric varices was shown in one case, colonic varices in one case and hypertensive gastropathy in another of the survivors. Post operative encephalopathy was shown in 3 of the cases. The thirty-six month survival rate was 30% (Kaplan-Meier). CONCLUSIONS: The combination of intrahepatic plus extrahepatic portal hypertension has a worse prognosis. Treatment options are limited (sclerotherapy and/or devascularization), because shunt surgery, TIPS and liver transplantation have a very restricted role and postoperative outcome is poor.  (+info)

Successful twin pregnancy in a dual-transplant couple resulting from in-vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection: case report. (3/234)

There are numerous reports of successful pregnancy following liver transplantation. Little information is available regarding the incidence and management of infertility in transplant recipients, particularly the use of artificial reproductive technologies. We present a case of a successful twin pregnancy resulting from in-vitro fertilization with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) in a liver transplant recipient, whose partner was a renal transplant recipient with severe oligozoospermia. With careful evaluation and monitoring, and the involvement of appropriate consultants, artificial reproductive technologies can be safely used in transplant recipient couples experiencing infertility.  (+info)

A 27-year experience with surgical treatment of Budd-Chiari syndrome. (4/234)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effects of surgical portal decompression in Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) on survival, quality of life, shunt patency, liver function, portal hemodynamics, and hepatic morphology during periods ranging from 3.5 to 27 years. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Experiments in the authors' laboratory showed that surgical portal decompression reversed the deleterious effects of BCS on the liver. This study was aimed at determining whether similar benefit could be obtained in patients with BCS. METHODS: From 1972 to 1999, the authors conducted prospective studies of the treatment of 60 patients with BCS who were divided into three groups: the first had occlusion confined to the hepatic veins treated by direct side-to-side portacaval shunt (SSPCS); the second had occlusion involving the inferior vena cava (IVC) treated by a portal decompressive procedure that bypassed the obstructed IVC; and the third group, who had advanced cirrhosis and hepatic decompensation and were referred too late for treatment by portal decompression, required orthotopic liver transplantation. RESULTS: In the 32 patients with BCS resulting from hepatic vein occlusion alone, SSPCS had a surgical death rate of 3%, and 94% of the patients were alive 3.5 to 27 years after surgery. All 31 survivors remained free of ascites and almost all had normal liver function. No patient with a patent shunt had encephalopathy. The SSPCS remained patent in all but one patient. Liver biopsies showed no evidence of congestion or necrosis, and 48% of the biopsies were diagnosed as normal. Mesoatrial shunt was performed in eight patients with BCS caused by IVC thrombosis. All patients survived surgery, but five subsequently developed thrombosis of the synthetic graft and died. Because of the poor results, mesoatrial shunt was abandoned. Instead, a high-flow combination shunt was introduced, consisting of SSPCS combined with a cavoatrial shunt (CAS) through a Gore-Tex graft. There were no surgical or long-term deaths among 10 patients who underwent combined SSPCS and CAS, and the shunts functioned effectively during 4 to 16 years of follow-up. Ten patients with advanced cirrhosis were referred too late to benefit from surgical portal decompression, and they were approved and listed for orthotopic liver transplantation. Three patients died of liver failure while awaiting a transplant, and four patients died after the transplant. The 1- and 5-year survival rates were 40% and 30%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: SSPCS in BCS with hepatic vein occlusion alone results in reversal of liver damage, correction of hemodynamic disturbances, prolonged survival, and good quality of life when performed early in the course of BCS. Similarly good results are obtained with combined SSPCS and CAS in patients with BCS resulting from IVC occlusion. In contrast, mesoatrial shunt has been discontinued in the authors' program because of an unacceptable incidence of graft thrombosis and death. In patients with advanced cirrhosis from long-standing, untreated BCS, orthotopic liver transplantation is the only hope of relief and results in the salvage of some patients. The key to long survival in BCS is prompt diagnosis and treatment by portal decompression.  (+info)

Successful liver transplantation in a patient with Budd-Chiari syndrome caused by homozygous factor V Leiden. (5/234)

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare form of portal hypertension characterized by hepatic venous outflow obstruction. Although hematologic disorders are the most common cause of this syndrome, to date, 30% of the cases have been classified as idiopathic. Resistance to activated protein C caused by factor V Leiden is the most common cause of thrombophilia; its role in the pathogenesis of BCS is now becoming apparent. We report successful liver transplantation in a patient with BCS caused by homozygous factor V Leiden. The patient was administered standard heparin anticoagulation until activated protein C resistance was normalized by the liver allograft. Liver transplantation corrected the thrombophilic state. The patient has excellent graft function, is not on anticoagulation therapy, and has had no recurrent venous thrombosis at 5 months posttransplantation. Activated protein C resistance caused by the factor V Leiden mutation may be responsible for idiopathic cases of BCS. To avoid unnecessary long-term anticoagulation after liver transplantation, factor V Leiden should be considered as a pathogenic factor in BCS. In addition, because of the high prevalence of factor V Leiden in the world population, cadaveric organ donors with a history of venous thrombosis should be screened for activated protein C resistance lest thrombophilia be transmitted to the recipient.  (+info)

Factor V Leiden mutation, prothrombin gene mutation, and deficiencies in coagulation inhibitors associated with Budd-Chiari syndrome and portal vein thrombosis: results of a case-control study. (6/234)

In a collaborative multicenter case-control study, we investigated the effect of factor V Leiden mutation, prothrombin gene mutation, and inherited deficiencies of protein C, protein S, and antithrombin on the risk of Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) and portal vein thrombosis (PVT). We compared 43 BCS patients and 92 PVT patients with 474 population-based controls. The relative risk of BCS was 11.3 (95% CI 4.8-26.5) for individuals with factor V Leiden mutation, 2.1(95% CI 0.4-9.6) for those with prothrombin gene mutation, and 6.8 (95% CI 1.9-24.4) for those with protein C deficiency. The relative risk of PVT was 2.7 (95% CI 1.1-6.9) for individuals with factor V Leiden mutation, 1.4 (95% CI 0.4-5.2) for those with prothrombin gene mutation, and 4.6 (95% CI 1.5-14.1) for those with protein C deficiency. The relative risk of BCS or PVT was not increased in the presence of inherited protein S or antithrombin deficiency. Concurrence of either acquired or inherited thrombotic risk factors was observed in 26% of the BCS patients and 37% of the PVT patients. We conclude that factor V Leiden mutation and hereditary protein C deficiency appear to be important risk factors for BCS and PVT. Although the prevalence of the prothrombin gene mutation was increased, it was not found to be a significant risk factor for BCS and PVT. The coexistence of thrombogenic risk factors in many patients indicates that BCS and PVT can be the result of a combined effect of different pathogenetic mechanisms.  (+info)

Successful outcome of orthotopic liver transplantation in patients with preexisting malignant states. (7/234)

Preexisting malignancy is considered a relative contraindication to orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) because of the risk of tumor recurrence. The purpose of this study is to assess the outcome of OLT in patients with a preexistent malignant state. Of 1,097 OLTs performed between 1989 and 1999 at King's College Hospital (London, UK), 18 patients had a pretransplantation malignant state, including 6 cases of myeloproliferative disorder (MPD) presenting as Budd-Chiari syndrome. Those patients with solid-organ malignancies had their tumor detected at an early stage and underwent curative treatment before or during OLT. Patients were followed up for a median of 71 months (range, 1 to 119 months) post-OLT, and the rates of rejection and malignancy were compared with those of transplant recipients without preexisting malignancy during the same period. One patient had a recurrence of his primary malignancy (non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) after 27 months, whereas another patient developed a de novo posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder after 57 months. One patient with MPD developed acute leukemia 72 months after OLT. In comparison, of 1,079 OLTs performed in patients without preexisting malignancy during the same period, there were 34 cases of de novo malignancies. The rate of rejection in patients with and without preexisting malignancy was similar. Successful medium-term outcome after OLT can be achieved in carefully selected patients with preexisting malignancy providing the malignancy is amenable to curative treatment before or at OLT. Primary MPDs responsible for Budd-Chiari syndrome should not be considered a contraindication to OLT.  (+info)

Factor V Leiden related Budd-Chiari syndrome. (8/234)

BACKGROUND: The role of factor V Leiden as a cause of Budd-Chiari syndrome has only recently been described. AIMS: To assess the specific features of factor V Leiden related Budd-Chiari syndrome. PATIENTS: Sixty three consecutive patients with hepatic vein or terminal inferior vena cava thrombosis. METHODS: Standardised chart review. RESULTS: Factor V Leiden was found in 20 patients (31% (95% CI 20-43)). In the subgroup of patients with, compared with the subgroup without, factor V Leiden, a combination of prothrombotic states was more common (70% (95% CI 50-90) v 14% (95% CI 3-24)); inferior vena cava thrombosis was more frequent (40% (95% CI 19-61) v 7% (95% CI 0-14)); and distribution of initial alanine aminotransferase values was bimodal (almost normal or extremely increased) versus unimodal (p=0.003). Factor V Leiden accounted for four of five cases of massive ischaemic necrosis (transaminases >50-fold the upper limit of normal values) (p=0.014), and also for all three cases developing during pregnancy. Patients with and without factor V Leiden did not differ with regard to mortality, portosytemic shunting, or listing for liver transplantation. Hepatocellular carcinoma developed in two patients; both had factor V Leiden and indolent obstruction of the inferior vena cava. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome, factor V Leiden (a) is common; (b) precipitates thrombosis mostly when combined with another risk factor; (c) is associated with one of two contrasting clinical pictures: indolent thrombosis-particularly of the inferior vena cava-or massive ischaemic necrosis; and (d) is a major cofactor of Budd-Chiari syndrome developing during pregnancy.  (+info)

When Budd-Chiari syndrome is suspected, measurements are made of liver enzyme levels and other organ markers (creatinine, urea, electrolytes, LDH). Budd-Chiari syndrome is diagnosed using ultrasound studies of the abdomen, although occasionally more invasive methods have to be used (retrograde angiography). Liver biopsy is sometimes necessary to differentiate between Budd-Chiari syndrome and other causes of hepatomegaly and ascites, such as galactosemia or Reyes syndrome. ...
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the CT and MR imaging appearance of large regenerative nodules arising in livers with vascular disorders and to correlate these findings with the clinical and pathologic findings. CONCLUSION Large regenerative nodules are a characteristic feature of Budd-Chiari syndrome and other hepatic vascular disorders. CT and MR imaging show consistent features of the nodules and the surrounding liver that may allow distinction of Budd-Chiari nodules from other types of hypervascular hyperplastic or dysplastic nodules.
The Budd-Chiari syndrome, or Chiaris syndrome, is the disease complex which follows hepatic vein occlusion. It is a moderately well popularized secondary abdominal response to several disease processes, but the number of reported cases remains remarkably small. During the past 32 months seven autopsy-proved cases and four presumptive cases have been observed. This appears to be a large experience with the syndrome, perhaps explained by the fact that a large tumor center was the source of material. From 1910 to 1939 at the Mayo Clinic 20 instances were encountered.1 Only five were found during 11,979 autopsies at Stanford University.2. Lambron ...
We studied the role of the recently identified CALR mutations in 141 patients with Budd-Chiari Syndrome (BCS) or portal vein thrombosis (PVT) in a large multinational cohort. A CALR mutation was present in one of the 141 patients (0.7%). This patient was previously diagnosed with primary myelofibrosis. This results in CALR positivity in one out of 44 (2.3%) patients with myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN), and in one of 11 (9.1%) JAK2V617F negative patients diagnosed with MPN. We suggest that analysis of CALR mutations should be performed in JAK2V617F negative BCS and PVT patients.. BCS and non-malignant, non-cirrhotic PVT are rare vascular liver diseases. The etiology of these diseases encompasses both inherited and acquired risk factors, of which MPN are the most common with a prevalence ranging between 20%-50%.1-3 Detecting presence of MPN in patients with BCS and PVT is important, given the prognostic and potential therapeutic implications regarding anticoagulant therapy.4,5 However, ...

A 6.5-year-old, female spayed German short-haired pointer dog was presented with a two-week history of ascites. The dog was depressed with a severely distended abdomen. Peritoneal fluid analysis revealed a modified transudate. A metallic linear foreign body was identified cranial to the pyloric antrum by advanced imaging. A fibrous tract of tissue extending from the pyloric antrum to the hilar region of the right medial liver lobe was dissected surgically. The foreign body was removed by dissection of the fibrous tract, which relieved visible compression of the caudal vena cava and all hepatic veins. By three days postoperatively, ascites had not resolved and a caudal cavagram confirmed narrowing of the thoracic caudal vena cava at the diaphragm. Eight days postoperatively, a caudal vena caval stent was placed, relieving the pressure gradient across the narrowing and resulting in complete resolution of clinical signs. ...

Splanchnic vein thrombosis (SVT) refers to Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) and portal vein system thrombosis (PVST). Current practice guidelines have recommended the routine screening for antiphospholipid antibodies (APAs) in patients with SVT. A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies was performed to explore the association between APAs and SVT. The PubMed, EMBASE, and ScienceDirect databases were searched for all relevant papers, in which the prevalence of positive APAs or levels of APAs should be compared between BCS or noncirrhotic PVST patients versus healthy controls, or between cirrhotic patients with portal vein thrombosis (PVT) versus those without PVT. Fourteen studies were eligible. Only 1 study evaluated the role of APAs in BCS patients and found that positive immunoglobulin (Ig) G anticardiolipin antibody (aCL) was more frequently observed in BCS patients than in healthy controls; however, the associations of other APAs with BCS were not evaluated. Positive IgG aCL ...
What is Budd Chiari Syndrome? Symptoms, Signs, Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment & Pictures. It is due to thrombotic or non-thrombotic hepatic venous outflow blockage..
Budd-Chiari syndrome is a rare problem that results from blood clotting in the veins flowing out of the liver (hepatic veins). The high pressure of blood in these veins leads to an enlarged liver, and to an accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, called ascites. The liver, the largest internal organ in the human body, is responsible for many vital physiologic processes. Blood flow through the liver nourishes the liver, carries in substances that the liver will process, and carries away substances that the liver has produced. When blood cannot flow out freely from the liver, blood pressure rises in the veins of the liver, leading to blood clots within the liver. Also, some of the blood plasma can leak through the walls of the veins and accumulate within the abdomen (ascites).

RESULTS: The etiology of BCS was identified in 38 cases. Ph- MPN was found as the most common risk factor (50%, N.=22), especially polycythemia vera. JAK2V617F mutation was detected in the most of 22 MPN cases (82.5%). The second most common etiologic factor was inherited thrombophilia (18%, N.=8). In the non-covered (bare) stent group, a primary patency rates 52.9% in 1 year and 20% in 5 years after TIPS (Portasystemic Shunt, Transjugular Intrahepatic) creation. In the covered stent group the 1-year and 5-year primary patency rates were was 80% and 33.3% respectively. The average 5-year re-intervention rate per patient was 1.65 procedures in the bare stent group and 0.67 in the covered stent group. Re-interventions were more frequent in MPN patients. All patients were anticoagulated with heparin at the beginning, switched to vitamin K antagonist. On top of TIPS, anticoagulant and a vigorous therapy of underlying disorder are necessary ...

Chronic haemolysis places continuous strain on vital organs, particularly the liver; kidneys; and heart, thus increasing the risk of serious and life-threatening complications such as liver and/or kidney failure; heart attack; stroke; deep vein thrombosis; Budd-Chiari Syndrome (a clot or clots in the hepatic vein of the liver); or blood clots in other veins or organs.. Clots are the most common complication of PNH and the leading cause of death among patients. This is a scary thing for a patient to face, but knowing the signs and symptoms of a clot and getting treatment as soon as possible can minimise the risk of further complication. If you experience swelling in the limbs or abdomen and severe and/or sudden onset of pain, you should seek medical advice immediately.. ...
Results: Ten patients were men (40.0%). Median age of recipients at transplantation was 29.0 (17-51) years. Eighteen patients (72%) had evidence of myeloproliferation, 1 had paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, and 6 had idiopathic disease. In 55.5% of cases eventually diagnosed with myeloproliferative neoplasms, Budd-Chiari syndrome was their initial presentation. All patients were maintained on long-term post-transplant anticoagulation protocol. The median follow-up time was 58.8 months. Four patients (16%) died during follow-up. Acute graft rejection occurred in 16% of cases. During the observation period, 5 patients had recurrent thrombotic events. The 5-year patient and graft survival rate was 84%. No case of transformation to acute leukemia was seen ...

Despite having made only one cytoreductive surgery and after of drainage of the ascitic fluid accumulated in the abdominal cavity the animal improved in the first 48 hours after surgery. Within this 48 hours the animal was more active, had eaten some food and tolerated it and had minimal edema in the limbs. Postoperative chemotherapy with doxorubicin (Doxocris 50, LKM, Buenos Aires, Argentina), 30 mg/m2 IV was initiated immediately after surgery. The dog deteriorated 2 weeks after treatment and died. A complete necropsy (excluding the central nervous system) was performed. The right accessory lung lobe was replaced by a large tumor (11 x 6 x 4 cm) previously diagnosed as a papillary pulmonary adenocarcinoma (Fig. 2 B). Due to the large size of the tumor, the CVC was almost completely compressed. The spleen had multiple red-brown nodules (Fig. 1 C) ranging from 0.5 to 1.3 cm in diameter; these splenic masses were histopathologically diagnosed as chronic splenitis (Fig. 2 C). The liver had ...

In the present series, 8.4% of patients were found to have splanchnic vein thrombosis at evaluation. This proportion probably underestimates the true incidence of splanchnic vein thrombosis during end stage cirrhosis. Indeed, a significant proportion of patients with extensive thrombosis may not have been referred to our centre because they were not considered as suitable candidates for transplantation and therefore were not taken into account for analysis. None the less, eight of 230 (3.2%) patients who did not have thrombosis at evaluation developed thrombosis while on the waiting list. Importantly, the majority of these patients (6/8) only had partial portal vein thrombosis. Although pretransplantation Doppler-US screening was performed at three month intervals, nine additional patients were found to have thrombosis at the time of surgery. Again, eight of these nine patients had only partial thrombosis and transplantation was technically feasible in all cases.. Multivariate analysis showed ...

A 46-year-old man presented with swelling of the lower limbs of 1-year duration. The patient was diagnosed Budd-Chiari syndrome, with a web in the inferior vena cava (IVC) in 1996 (A), treated with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with Inoue balloon (B). Examination revealed edema and varicosities of both legs, with ascites (D). Abdominal computed tomography (C) and IVC angiography (E, Online Video 1) showed a calcified web with a pseudoaneurysm. Through the right femoral vein, a 6-F multipurpose catheter was passed into the IVC, the lesion was crossed with a Terumo guidewire (Terumo, Leuven, Belgium), and the web was dilated with a 24-cm3 Inoue balloon (Online Video 2). Post-percutaneous transluminal angioplasty shoot showed a residual lesion with a pseudoaneurysm. A PS-5014 stent mounted on 20/40-mm Atlas balloon (Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc., Tempe, Arizona) was positioned across the web. When the proximal end of the stent was released, the stent migrated into the right atrium (E, ...
Vascular diseases of the liver are a heterogeneous group of rare and if untreated fatal disorders that include portal vein thrombosis, Budd-Chiari syndrome, non-cirrhotic portal hypertension, sinusoidal obstruction syndrome, hereditary hemorrhagic teleangiectasia and others.. Current knowledge about patients suffering from these disorders is insufficient and no biological samples are available to study the mechanisms of these diseases and the effects of treatments..

In our prospective study cohort, membranous obstruction was demonstrated in 92 (68.6%) of 134 cases of hydrocephalus with the use of 3D-CISS at 3T. Intraventricular membranous obstruction is the most common pathologic finding to cause noncommunicating hydrocephalus (85/114 total noncommunicating cases). However, except in the cerebral aqueduct region, conventional images are insensitive in detection of obstructive membranes in the CSF pathway. In this study, they were only demonstrated in 57 (36.3%) of 157 obstruction sites with the use of conventional imaging. In choosing the most appropriate treatment technique and to assess the prognosis in hydrocephalus, the classification of hydrocephalus and demonstration of obstruction, if it exists, are of significant importance.20,33 The terminology and the classification of hydrocephalus are still a matter of debate and are not the aims of our study. However, it is obvious that we need accurate neuroimaging techniques to demonstrate CSF pathways ...
Cook Medical has completed enrolment in the first clinical study of an iliofemoral venous stent conducted in the USA under an FDA-approved investigational device exemption.
