Despite the establishment of uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) as a safe and effective treatment option for uterine leiomyomata, the real-world utilization and outcomes of UFE relative to surgical techniques are unknown. The purpose of this study was to conduct a population level analysis for the treatment of uterine leiomyomata by UFE, myomectomy, and hysterectomy.
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) standards were updated in 2011 to recommend end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) monitoring during moderate sedation, which is now common practice in IR. Studies show EtCO2 monitoring improves detection of respiratory depression and hypoxemia. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of respiratory depression and hypoxemia from oversedation during IR procedures before and after implementation of EtCO2 monitoring.
A pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is an anomalous connection between a pulmonary artery and a pulmonary vein that lacks a capillary bed. The most common symptoms of PAVM are dyspnea, exercise intolerance, migraine, stroke or transient ischemic attack, and lung hemorrhage. The treatment of choice is transcatheter embolization with the most common embolic devices being coils (multiple manufacturers) or Amplatzer plugs (AVP) (St. Jude Medical, Plymouth, MN) to occlude the malformation. The newest embolic device for PAVM occlusion is the microvascular plug (MVP) (Micro Vascular Plug System, Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN).
Numerous studies conclude sphenopalatine ganglion blockade (SPGB) with local anesthetic provides effective treatment for cephalalgias with few adverse events. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate safety and efficacy of SPGBs.
To evaluate the histopathologic changes following UAE of the leiomyomatous uterus in patients with same-day hysterectomy.
Endometrial biopsy (EMB) is performed in the preprocedural evaluation of patients with abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) referred for uterine artery embolization (UAE), despite these patients almost uniformly undergoing pelvic MRI. We compared the detection rate of MRI relative to EMB for endometrial abnormalities in both pre- and post-menopausal women.
This study aimed to determine the efficacy of lidocaine versus bupivacaine when performing an intranasal SPG block for the treatment of headache and facial pain.

Uterine manipulator and intracorporeal open colpotomy may be the two main suspects responsible for the inferiority. We hypothesize that minimally invasive radical hysterectomy with enclosed colpotomy and without the use of uterine manipulator will imp...

Growing up a musically-obsessed child in the 80's, Daryl Hall was one of my biggest inspirations. A masterful, inventive songwriter with an ocean of soul, he set me on the path to being an artist, to never waste a word, and to sing because I mean it.
