3D angiography. Clinical interest. First applications in interventional neuroradiology. (1/723)

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)

In vitro models of intracranial arteriovenous fistulas for the evaluation of new endovascular treatment materials. (2/723)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to create and test an in vitro model of intracranial arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) that simulates the geometry of human vasculature and allows realistic testing of devices used in endovascular therapy. METHODS: The models were derived from corrosion casts of the main cervicocranial arteries and veins obtained from two nonfixed human specimens. Wax copies of the casts were produced and combined to create complex models simulating various types of intracranial AVFs. Wax assemblies were embedded with liquid silicone solidified into transparent blocks containing, after wax evacuation, hollow reproductions of the original vascular trees. The models were connected to a pulsatile pump and their compatibility with various imaging techniques and endovascular treatment materials was evaluated. RESULTS: The models were compatible with digital subtraction angiography, CT, MR imaging, and transcranial Doppler sonography. They provided a realistic endovascular environment for the simulation of interventional neuroradiologic procedures. CONCLUSION: Anatomically accurate and reproducible in vitro models of intracranial AVFs provide a valuable method for evaluating new endovascular treatment materials and for teaching purposes.  (+info)

Pulmonary embolism caused by acrylic cement: a rare complication of percutaneous vertebroplasty. (4/723)

A pulmonary embolus of acrylic cement was present in a 41-year-old woman with Langerhans' cell vertebral histiocytosis (LCH) after percutaneous vertebroplasty. Chest radiograph and CT confirmed pulmonary infarction and the presence of cement in the pulmonary arteries. She was treated with anticoagulants, and responded favorably. This rare complication occurred because perivertebral venous migration was not recognized during vertebroplasty. Adequate preparation of cement and biplane fluoroscopy are recommended for vertebroplasty.  (+info)

Radiologic and histopathologic evaluation of canine artery occlusion after collagen-coated platinum microcoil delivery. (5/723)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Platinum coil embolization is one of the significant advances in interventional neuroradiologic techniques that has been introduced this decade. Our purpose was to evaluate the angiographic and histologic effects of collagen-coated platinum microcoil delivery in the canine artery. METHODS: We embolized the bilateral internal maxillary arteries of 18 dogs; one uncoated and one collagen-primed coil was used in each dog. We evaluated all coils by angiography, macroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy within 30 minutes of embolization. We then studied a proportional number of coated and collagen-primed coils at either 1 or 3 days, or 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 12, or 16 weeks postoperatively. RESULTS: Six (33%) of 18 arteries embolized with uncoated coils were occluded 30 minutes after delivery, whereas 11 (61%) of 18 arteries treated with collagen-primed coils were occluded within 30 minutes of embolization. Late occlusion (3 weeks after embolization) occurred in 2 (25%) of 8 arteries embolized with untreated coils, and 6 (75%) of 8 arteries embolized with collagen-primed coils. We calculated differences in late occlusion rates by the chi2 (chi-square) test, and found these differences were significant (P=.04). Histologic findings of arteries embolized with unprimed coils revealed endothelial cell growth was limited to the organized thrombi 4 weeks after coil delivery. In contrast, endothelial cells grew directly on the collagen-primed coils 3 days postoperatively, and coils were completely covered by endothelial cells within 2 weeks. We found an organized thrombus in the inner space of coils in angiographically occluded arteries, a finding that was not evident in angiographically patent arteries. CONCLUSION: Collagen-coated platinum coils can produce rapid and stable occlusion of embolized vessels.  (+info)

Epidurography and therapeutic epidural injections: technical considerations and experience with 5334 cases. (6/723)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Even in experienced hands, blind epidural steroid injections result in inaccurate needle placement in up to 30% of cases. The use of fluoroscopy and radiologic contrast material provides confirmation of accurate needle placement within the epidural space. We describe our technique and experience with contrast epidurography and therapeutic epidural steroid injections, and review the frequency of systemic and neurologic complications. METHODS: Epidural steroid injections were performed in 5489 consecutive outpatients over a period of 5 1/2 years by three procedural neuroradiologists. In 155 cases (2.8%), the injections were done without contrast material owing to either confirmed or suspected allergy. The remaining 5334 injections were performed after epidurography through the same needle. Patients and referring clinicians were instructed to contact us first regarding complications or any problem potentially related to the injection. In addition, the referring clinicians' offices were instructed to contact us regarding any conceivable procedure-related complications. RESULTS: Only 10 patients in the entire series required either oral (n = 5) or intravenous (n = 5) sedation. Four complications (0.07%) required either transport to an emergency room (n = 2) or hospitalization (n = 2). None of the complications required surgical intervention, and all were self-limited with regard to symptoms and imaging manifestations. Fluoroscopic needle placement and epidurography provided visual confirmation of accurate needle placement, distribution of the injectate, and depiction of epidural space disease. CONCLUSION: Epidurography in conjunction with epidural steroid injections provides for safe and accurate therapeutic injection and is associated with an exceedingly low frequency of untoward sequelae. It can be performed safely on an outpatient basis and does not require sedation or special monitoring.  (+info)

Treatment of distal aneurysms of the cerebellar arteries by intraaneurysmal injection of glue. (7/723)

Distal aneurysms of the cerebellar arteries are associated with a poor prognosis, as surgery or embolization with GDCs is very difficult. We report our experience with a new therapeutic method involving intraaneurysmal injection of glue. Three aneurysms were catheterized with a flow-guided microcatheter, and glue was slowly injected into the aneurysms. In two cases, treatment resulted in total occlusion of the aneurysm with preservation of the parent artery. In one case, the aim was to occlude both the aneurysm and parent artery.  (+info)

CT-guided stereotactic biopsy of deep brain lesions: report of 310 cases. (8/723)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the accuracy of CT-guided stereotactic biopsy in making correct pathological diagnosis and choosing corresponding management of brain tumors. METHODS: From 1991 to 1995, CT-guided stereotactic biopsy was performed in 310 patients with intracerebral lesions which were deep-seated or located in certain main functional areas. The patients were 198 men and 112 women. Their ages ranged from 4.5 to 70 years (average: 39.3 years). The lesions were located in the deep cerebrum (74 patients), the sellar area (62), the basal ganglion (51), the posterior part of the third ventricle (38), other intraventricleular area (21), the cerebellum (17) and the brain stem (9), and intracranial multiple lesions were found in 38 patients. RESULTS: Brain tumors were diagnosed pathologically in 266 patients (85.8%); inflammatory process in 25 (8.1%), other lesions in 8 (2.6%) and uncertain cases were 11 (3.6%). The overall positive rate of biopsy was 96.4% and the positive rate for brain tumor was 85.8%. Intracranial hematomas after biopsy were found in 5 patients (1.6%). There were no deaths induced by the biopsy or other serious complications. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that CT-guided stereotactic biopsy is a reliable method for histopathological diagnosis of brain tumors and it is also of great help in selecting appropriate management.  (+info)

Procedures performed by an interventional radiology specialist are becoming increasingly important in the management of patients with cancer. Although general interventional radiology procedures such as angiography and angioplasty are used in patients with and without cancer, certain procedures are reserved for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer or cancer-related complications. Interventional radiology procedures include imaging-guided biopsies to obtain samples for cytologic or pathologic testing without affecting adjacent structures. Transjugular liver biopsy is used to diagnose hepatic parenchymal abnormalities without traversing Glissons capsule. This biopsy procedure is particularly useful in patients with coagulopathies. Because the transjugular liver biopsy obtains random samples, it is not recommended for biopsy of discrete hepatic masses. Fluid collections can also be sampled or drained using interventional radiology techniques. Transcatheter chemoembolization is a procedure that delivers a

Few causes of CBT are known, but parental, fetal, and early life exposures are likely to be important given the early age at diagnosis of many cases. We aimed to investigate whether parents diagnostic radiological procedures before conception, in the mother during pregnancy or the childs procedures were associated with an increased risk of CBT. Methods This population-based case-control study was conducted between 2005 and 2010. Cases were identified through all ten Australian pediatric oncology centers, and controls via nationwide ...
Radiology Suite They use X-rays, MRI and other imaging to advance a catheter in the body, usually in an artery, to treat at the source of the disease internally. As the inventors of angioplasty and the catheter-delivered stent, which were first used in the legs to treat peripheral arterial disease, interventional radiologists pioneered minimally invasive modern medicine.. For many years, surgery was the only treatment available for many conditions. Today, many conditions can be treated less invasively by interventional radiologists. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery and are first-line care for a wide variety of conditions.. Interventional radiologists unique blend of skills fosters innovation and enables them to quickly adapt their imaging expertise to pioneer nonsurgical treatments that are guided by imaging.

The interventional radiologist will pass a small needle through your skin into either your left or your right liver lobe. If it is the right liver lobe which is punctured, this will be between your ribs and in the middle of your side. If it is your left liver lobe which is punctured, the interventional radiologist will choose an entry site below the tip of your breastbone.. As the needle is withdrawn, the interventional radiologist will gently inject a diluted contrast agent, a substance which makes the area show up better under imaging. This means that, when the needle enters the bile duct, the tubular structure is more clearly visible under imaging. The interventional radiologist will then insert a guidewire into the bile duct, which is followed by a catheter. The guidewire and catheter are used together to move past the blockage and reach the intestine.. Once the interventional radiologist has removed this catheter, they will dilate the blocked liver tract so that the drainage catheter can be ...
