Article
Background: Valid and reliable assessment of skills is essential for improved and evidence-based training concepts. In a recent study, we presented a novel tool to assess procedural skills in resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA), REBOA-RATE, based on international expert consensus. Although expert consensus is a strong...

Introduction: Rehearsing endovascular aortic aneurysm repair on patient-specific data is recent within virtual reality simulation and opens up new possibilities for operators to prepare for complex procedures. This study evaluated the feasibility of patient-specific rehearsal (PsR) and assessed operators’ appraisal of the VIST-LAB simulator from Me...

Introduction: Patient-specific rehearsal (PsR) is a recent technology within virtual reality (VR) simulation that lets the operators train on patient-specific data in a simulated environment prior to the procedure. Endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a complex procedure where operative metrics and technical success might improve after PsR. Mater...

Training front-line practitioners with different skillsets is a challenge in trauma. Resuscitation and endovascular training with simulators allows the whole team to practice and receive feedback, which is not possible in real-life situations. Endovascular procedures are time-sensitive interventions in trauma, but not all hospital structures have e...

Background Few patients survive after out‐of‐hospital cardiac arrest and any measure that improve circulation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation is beneficial. Animal studies support that resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta ( REBOA ) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation might benefit patients suffering from out‐of‐hospital c...
Article
Introduction: The proportion of patients surviving to hospital discharge after out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is low and any measure that may improve circulation to vital organs during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is beneficial. The use of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) will redistribute cardiac outp...

Background Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a critical incident with a high mortality rate. Augmentation of the circulation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) might be beneficial. Use of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) redistribute cardiac output to the organs proximal to the occlusion. Preclinical...
Article
Background: Out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a critical incident with a high mortality rate. Augmentation of the circulation and hence oxygen delivery to vital organs such as the brain and heart during cardio-pulmonal resuscitation (CPR) might be beneficial. Use of resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA) redistribu...

Background Severe postpartum hemorrhage occurs in 1/1000 women giving birth. This condition is often dramatic and may be life threatening. Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) has in recent years been introduced as a novel treatment for hemorrhagic shock. We present a series of fluoroscopy-free REBOA for controlling lif...

Carotid arterial bleeding is a feared and possible life-threatening complication of transsphenoidal surgery. We present a case of a meningioma that during resection had a serious complication with laceration of the internal carotid artery (ICA). These patients rarely undergo endovascular treatment, with indications mainly due to the development of...

This article describes the use of a balloon catheter introduced via the femoral artery into the abdominal aorta without the use of fluoroscopy to stabilize six patients with life-threatening post-partum haemorrhage. The femoral artery was localized blindly or with the use of ultrasound. Immediate control of the bleeding was achieved in all patients...
Article
To compare cancer detection rates of screen-film (SFM) and full-field digital mammography (FFDM) with soft-copy reading in a screening program including the initial positive scores for interval cancers and cancers in the subsequent screening round, and to analyze the false-negative FFDM interpretations. Using a paired study design, 3683 women under...
Article
We describe an unusual case of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and cardiogenic shock in a 25-year-old woman. After coronary revascularization, a thyrotoxic storm developed and the patient's cardiac failure changed into a hyperdynamic circulation without obvious changes in the patient's vital signs. This report will focus on three issues: (1) the...
Article
To study the safety of giving protamin after coronary angioplasty to reverse heparin for immediate removal of the femoral sheath. After successful angioplasty, 100 patients were randomized to receive protamin and immediate sheath removal or to the control group with sheath removal after 3 h. Patients were followed for 30 days so that groin complica...
Article
To study the feasibility of placing a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered stent graft into native coronary arteries and assess the complications and the restenosis rate. Fifty consecutive patients with stable angina pectoris were included and the stent graft was placed into native coronary arteries. Clinical and angiographic follow-up were perfo...
Article
Percutaneous angioplasty is an alternative to thrombolysis to reestablish coronary blood flow in patients with transmural myocardial infarction. At present, this treatment option is not widely accepted in Norway. From 1996 to 1998, one hundred consecutive patients were treated with angioplasty for acute transmural infarction. The angiography showed...
Article
A 58-year-old man underwent percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties in June 1992 and May 1993. Approximately 3 weeks after the last procedure, a cutaneous lesion developed into an ulcer over the right scapular region. The ulcer failed to heal with conservative treatment; therefore, surgical excision was performed. The localization and the...
Article
MR images of 45 patients who had received radiation therapy for carcinoma of the anus or recurrent carcinoma of the rectum were reviewed with regard to postirradiation changes of the pelvic wall. High signal intensity in bone marrow on T1-weighted images due to fatty replacement was almost always observed. Presacral edema occurred in 7 of 36 patien...
