  • arterial
  • 1. The effects of propranolol on heart rate, arterial pressure, portal venous pressure and fractional hepatic blood flow were studied in rats with hepatic artery ligature or with portal vein stenosis, and in sham-operated rats. (clinsci.org)
  • 2. In rats with hepatic artery ligature or with portal vein stenosis, and in sham-operated rats, propranolol decreased heart rate and portal venous pressure significantly and did not alter arterial pressure. (clinsci.org)
  • splenic artery
  • It runs from right to left along the great curvature of the stomach, between the layers of the great omentum, assuming the name of right gastroepiploic, [a. gastro-epiploica dextra,] g, and inosculates with the left gastro-epiploic derived from the splenic artery. (imedecin.com)
  • It is caused by a bleeding source in the pancreas, pancreatic duct, or structures adjacent to the pancreas, such as the splenic artery, that bleed into the pancreatic duct, which is connected with the bowel at the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is associated with pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer and aneurysms of the splenic artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diseases of the pancreas include acute and chronic pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, pancreatic duct stones, ruptured aneurysms of the splenic artery, and pseudoaneurysms of the splenic artery and hepatic artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pseudoaneurysms are complications of pancreatitis where a pseudocyst is formed, with one wall abutting an artery, usually the splenic artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • catheter
  • The 5 Fr catheter was then successfully advanced into the proper hepatic artery using the balloon anchor technique and the recurrent HCC was treated by means of selective B-TACE. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The percutaneous Seldinger technique introduces a catheter, which is a thin flexible tube made of medical grade material, into the hepatic artery under radiological control. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once the catheter is carefully placed in the artery or in a selected branch, the blood flow can be occluded by injecting various items, such as plastic particles, glue, metal coils, foam, or by deploying a balloon. (wikipedia.org)
  • pulmonary artery
  • Except for the pulmonary artery, which carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs, arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the tissues. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • No less than 90% of MAA particles can be between 10 - 90 micrometres in size and no particles may exceed 150 micrometres due to the risk of pulmonary artery blockade. (wikipedia.org)
  • branches
  • descends to reach the pyloric end of the stomach, turning from right to left along its upper curvature, supplies it with branches, and inosculates with the coronary artery. (imedecin.com)
  • This artery gives branches upwards to both surfaces of the stomach, and long slender vessels downwards to the omentum. (imedecin.com)
  • Branches from this plexus accompany all the divisions of the hepatic artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • infusion
  • One of the main arguments against the use of hepatic arterial infusion therapy however, is that the pump carries long-term morbidity, and that the insertion procedure involves a major operation via an upper-midline or subcostal incision. (sages.org)
  • albumin
  • Hepatic artery technetium (99mTc) albumin aggregated (MAA) scan is performed to evaluate hepatopulmonary shunting (resulting from hepatopulmonary syndrome). (wikipedia.org)
  • thrombosis
  • The following is the case of a patient taken to retransplant surgery three times due to hepatic artery thrombosis (initial indication was alcoholic cirrhosis and hepatocarcinoma), with residual HA thrombosis after the third transplant surgery. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • patients
  • The "artery-first" approach may be a useful method for pancreaticoduodenectomy in patients who have an anatomical abnormality. (hindawi.com)
  • When patients with extra-hepatic disease or portal vein involvement were excluded, overall 1-, 2- and 3-year survival rates rose to 84%, 66% and 51%, and median survival 40 months, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • In this procedure, a variety of embolizing agents (e.g., polyvinyl alcohol, gelfoam, acrylic copolymer gelatin particles, embospheres) can be delivered through the tumor's feeding artery in order to completely occlude the tumor's blood supply. (wikipedia.org)
