    ABSTRACT: Kasabach-Merritt syndrome (KMS) is a rare complication of cavernous hemangiomas characterized with anemia, thrombocytopenia, and consumption coagulopathy. This syndrome usually develops due to superficial soft tissue hemangiomas in infancy and childhood. KMS developing secondarily to hepatic hemangioma is very rare. In this report, we aimed to present the treatment of KMS developing secondarily to giant cavernous hemangioma of the liver with transarterial chemoembolization using bleomycin.

    ABSTRACT: Congenital portosystemic venous shunt is extremely rare and should be treated. Advances in treatment techniques allow for patients to be treated safely. We present a 9-year-old boy with a large congenital portosystemic venous shunt. The shunt was occluded interventionally with the Amplatzer vascular plug II. Our case was unique with its clinical manifestation, the use of a 22-mm Amplatzer vascular plug II, and the presence of the patient's 1-year follow-up.

    ABSTRACT: Visceral arterial aneurysm and pseudoaneurysm are uncommon forms of vascular disease that have a significant potential for rupture or erosion into an adjacent viscera, resulting in life-threatening hemorrhage. Pseudoaneurysms related to the superior mesenteric artery are a recognized complication of trauma to the vessel, and successful treatment with stenting has been previously described. Percutaneous techniques offer an alternative form of therapy, and the number of reported cases treated with embolization has been rising steadily. We present the case of a 26-year-old patient with a large pseudoaneurysm of the superior mesenteric artery complicated with obstructive jaundice.

    ABSTRACT: PURPOSE: To perform biochemical profiles before and after percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) and investigate the potential utility of measuring C-reactive protein (CRP), circulating cytokines, and neopterin, a marker of cell-mediated immunity, to predict outcomes of patients with obstructive jaundice. MATERıALS AND METHODS: In a prospective study, 47 patients with obstructive jaundice secondary to malignant lesions were evaluated before, at the fifth hour after, and on the fifth day after PTBD for neopterin, nitrate, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-6, IL-10, CRP levels, and liver function. RESULTS: Neopterin levels on day 5 after PTBD were significantly higher than the levels before treatment and at the fifth hour. However, nitrate, cytokine, white blood cell, albumin, and creatinine levels were not significantly different. On the fifth day after PTBD, CRP levels were significantly higher and total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, aspartate transaminase, and alanine transaminase values were lower than the before-treatment values. Seven patients (15%) died within 30 days after drainage. On the fifth day after PTBD, neopterin, IL-6, IL-10, and creatinine levels were significantly higher and albumin levels were lower in the early mortality group. The performance characteristics of neopterin and creatinine were statistically significant in predicting mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Neopterin levels increased after PTBD, indicating cellular immune activation. The nonsignificant change in cytokine levels may be related to low enduring release in malignancy. The extremely elevated levels of neopterin and creatinine after PTBD might serve as harbingers of early death in patients with cholestasis secondary to malignant lesions.

    ABSTRACT: Vascular injury is an unusual and serious complication of transsphenoidal surgery. We aimed to define the role of angiography and endovascular treatment in patients with vascular injuries occurring during transsphenoidal surgery. During the last ten-year period, we retrospectively evaluated nine patients with vascular injury after transsphenoidal surgery. Eight patients were symptomatic due to vascular injury, while one had only suspicion of vascular injury during surgery. Four patients presented with epistaxis, two with subarachnoid hemorrhage, one with exophthalmos, and one with hemiparesia. Emergency angiography revealed a pseudoaneurysm in four patients, contrast extravasation in two, vessel dissection in one, vessel wall irregularity in one, and arteriovenous fistula in one. All patients but one were treated successfully with parent artery occlusion, with one covered stent implantation, one stent-assisted coiling method, while one patient was managed conservatively. One patient died due to complications related to the primary insult without rebleeding. Vascular injuries suspected intra or postoperatively must be investigated rapidly after transsphenoidal surgery. Endovascular treatment with parent artery occlusion is feasible with acceptable morbidity and mortality rates in the treatment of vascular injuries occurring in transsphenoidal surgery.

    ABSTRACT: To assess the treatment response of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after transarterial chemoembolization with diffusion-weighted imaging and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with a 3-T system. Between February 2010 and November 2010, 74 patients were treated with chemoembolization in our interventional radiology unit. Twenty-two patients (29%) who had liver MR imaging including diffusion and dynamic contrast-enhanced MR imaging on a 3-T system before and after transarterial chemoembolization were evaluated retrospectively. Tumor size, arterial enhancement, venous washout, and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of lesions, peritumoral parenchyma, normal liver parenchyma, and spleen were recorded before and after treatment. The significance of differences between ADC values of responding and nonresponding lesions was calculated. The study included 77 HCC lesions (mean diameter, 31.4 mm) in 20 patients. There was no significant reduction in mean tumor diameter after treatment. Reduction in tumor enhancement in the arterial phase was statistically significant (P = .01). Tumor ADC value increased from 1.10 × 10(-3) mm(2)/s to 1.27 × 10(-3) mm(2)/s after treatment (P < .01), whereas the ADC values for liver and spleen remained unchanged. ADC values from cellular parts of the tumor and necrotic areas also increased after treatment. However, pretreatment ADC values were not reliable to identify responding lesions according to the results of receiver operating characteristic analysis. After transarterial chemoembolization, responding HCC lesions exhibited decreases in arterial enhancement and increases in ADC values in cellular and necrotic areas. Pretreatment ADC values were not predictive of response to chemoembolization.

    ABSTRACT: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most common autoinflammatory disease characterized by recurrent self-limited attacks of fever, accompanied with peritonitis, pleuritis or arthritis. It is well known that FMF may coexist with vasculitic pathologies, especially with those involving small and medium vessels. Among the vasculitic pathologies reported to be associated with FMF, Henoch-Schönlein purpura and polyarteritis nodosa come the first, possibly followed up by protracted febrile myalgia. However, coexistence of FMF with any large vessel vasculitis has not been reported to date. Here, we present a case with FMF who later developed Takayasu arteritis, with a severe disease course, being resistant to corticosteroids and conventional immunosuppressive agents, and requiring infliximab treatment.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy of color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) for endoleak detection and measurement of the aneurysm diameter after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair. Forty-eight CDUS and computed tomographic angiography (CTA) examinations performed concurrently on 29 patients who were treated with endovascular stent grafts for abdominal aortic aneurysms were included in the study. CTA and CDUS findings were retrospectively compared for aneurysm diameter, patency of the graft, and the presence of leaks in the aneurysm's lumen (the so-called "endoleaks"). The stent graft was patent in all patients. Including the follow-up examinations, endoleaks were detected in a total of 17 CTA studies. The sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for CDUS compared with CTA as the gold standard were 100%, 96%, 94.4%, and 100%, respectively. Kappa statistics showed a high level of agreement between CDUS ant CTA examinations (χ = 0.95). The aneurysm diameters measured with CDUS and CTA were significantly different, but within 5 mm of each other in 83% of patients. Provided that a strict CDUS protocol including spectral analysis of perigraft flow is used, CDUS is comparable to CTA for endoleak detection and measurement of the aneurysm diameter.

    ABSTRACT: Chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) is a life-threatening disorder, which is usually associated with stenosis or occlusion of celiac or mesenteric arteries. To review our experience and to assess short-term results of stent placement in stenotic mesenteric arteries. Primary stent placement was performed in 15 patients who had nausea, vomiting, postprandial pain, and weight loss due to steno-occlusive diseases of mesenteric arteries. After stenting, the patients were followed clinically and with Doppler ultrasound at 1, 6, and 12 months. Symptomatic patients with restenosis were examined with digital subtraction angiography and were referred for retreatment with balloon dilatation. Twenty-three stenoses and 11 occlusions were detected in 15 patients, and 18 stenoses were treated with primary stenting. Single-vessel endovascular treatment was performed in 12 patients. In three patients, two arteries were stented in the same session. Technical success rate was 18/18 (100%). Clinical success was achieved in 13/15 (86.6%) patients. First-month mortality was 13%. During the mean 16.1-month follow-up period, restenoses developed in three patients. One of them was successfully treated with balloon angioplasty. Primary patency was 9/11 (81%) and primary assisted patency was 81% at 12 months. The complication rate was 1/15 patients (0.06%). Our experience suggests that stent placement has a potential role in chronic mesenteric ischemia with low incidence of complications and high technical and clinical success rates.

    ABSTRACT: Segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) is an uncommon self-limited disorder that can cause abdominal catastrophes through massive bleeding or bowel infarction. The former arise from arterial aneurysms, and the latter from arterial stenosis or occlusions. Although this is an acute self-limiting disease, the catastrophic consequence, originating from intra-abdominal hemorrhage (arterial dilatation, aneurysms, dissecting hematomas) or bowel infarction (arterial stenosis, arterial occlusions), is not rare. The identification of these lesions is very important in the differential diagnosis of suspected patients with complaints of abdominal pain with hemorrhage. We report computerized tomography angiography and digital subtraction angiography findings of three cases with abdominal SAM, who were treated with endovascular management due to abdominal bleeding. Angiography showed arterial dilatations, aneurysms, and occlusions of visceral arteries in all three cases, The string-of-beads appearance was present in only one case. Bleeding stopped immediately after embolization of three cases and follow-up revealed no evidence of recurrences at 23, 18, and 15 months, respectively, Arterial coil embolization is an effective treatment modality for bleeding complications of SAM. Close follow-up is recommended, primarily to ascertain the fate of the nontreated arterial lesions.

    ABSTRACT: Vasculitis, defined by inflammation in the blood vessel wall and reactive mural damage, may present with various clinical signs, depending on the organs involved. Infection, collagen vascular disease, and granulomatous disease or idiopathic inflammation of the vessels may result in various degrees of stenosis, obstruction, aneurysmal dilatation, or rupture. The definitive pathologic diagnosis is established by biopsy; however, the biopsy may pose significant risk to the patient; and the biopsy sample may not be adequate. Knowledge of the angiographic signs of various vasculitides should help in interpreting the clinical picture and reducing the need for biopsy. In this article, we describe the angiographic signs of the most common vasculitides, and review their clinical signs.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of our study was to evaluate prospectively the frequency and significance of brain lesions after elective carotid endarterectomy (CAE) and carotid artery stenting (CAS) by using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW MRI) and then to correlate imaging findings with neuroclinical outcomes. From February 2003 through March 2005, 95 consecutive patients underwent surgical endarterectomy or CAS (with a cerebral protection device) at our institution. A total of 59 CAE procedures were performed in 46 consecutive patients (mean age, 65.8 +/- 9 yr), and 56 CAS procedures were performed in 49 consecutive patients (mean age, 66.3 +/- 9 yr). Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging of the brain was performed in all patients within 24 hours of the procedure, both before and after. The post-procedural stroke rate was slightly higher in the CAS group, but this difference was not significant (5.4% vs 0). One early and 1 late death occurred in the stent group. Although the incidence of ischemic lesions was similar in both groups (surgery group, 12.5%; stent group, 13.5%), new DW MRI lesions were higher in the endarterectomy group (27.1% vs 12.5%, P=0.041). This difference was due chiefly to nonischemic lesions such as hemorrhage and watershed ischemia. In the analysis of patients with embolic ischemia, incidences of symptomatic stroke (P=0.046) and large infarct (P=0.013) were higher in the stent group. When we used protective devices during CAS, the incidence of embolic complications was similar to that of surgical enarterectomy. On the other hand, the clinical results of CAS need improvement.
