Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy (LPN) after intra-arterial Embolization of renal tumors (LPNE) in a hybrid operating room allows renal tumor enucleation without dissection and clamping of the renal pedicle. The purpose was to assess the potential negative impact of embolization on the renal function. This prospective monocentric study included all...
Article
Objective: To report our clinical practice regarding a case series of retained products of conception (RPOC) with marked vascularity (MV) managed with selective uterine artery embolization (UAE) as first-line treatment. Methods: This was a monocentric, retrospective study of 31 consecutive cases of RPOC with MV diagnosed by Doppler ultrasound in...
Conference Paper
PURPOSE/AIM To present a contrast media CT technique in patients declared deceased after an unexplained cardiac arrest unrecovered in order to identify the ethiology of the death . To describe CT features of a vascular opacification realised under external cardiac massage as well as its limitations. CONTENT ORGANIZATION The clinical circumstances...
Conference Paper
PURPOSE/AIM To know the radiological findings of typical and atypical bone lesions of Erdheim-Chester disease in different imaging modalities (Xray, CT, MRI, Scintigraphy and PET-Scan). To identify extra-osseous manifestations to complete the diagnosis. To recognise its specific radiological findings, scintigraphic and immunohistochemical features....

... Selective arterial embolization (SAE) is a widely studied method for decreasing the vascularity and volume of renal malignancies, thereby facilitating subsequent complete surgical tumor excision and limiting intraoperative bleeding [20][21][22][23]. In a nested matched case-control study, survival in 118 patients who underwent renal artery embolization before nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma was 62% and 47% at 5 and 10 years, respectively, compared with 35% and 23% in 116 patients without pre-operative embolization [22]. ...
... Based on a case series study and corresponding literature review, Chauleur et al. found that uterine artery embolization was safe and effective for postpartum hemorrhage caused by placenta accreta (Chauleur et al. 2008). To our knowledge, few studies (Bazeries et al. 2017;Kimura et al. 2020;Jiang et al. 2020;Takeda and Koike 2017) specifically report the use of TAE for treatment of retained placenta, although the use of TAE in postpartum hemorrhage is well described as a safe and effective treatment option. Furthermore, characteristic angiographic features of retained placenta have not yet been elucidated although successful embolization requires recognition of the target lesion on angiography. ...
