Unilateral isolated hypoglossal nerve palsy due to pathologically adherent PICA fusiform aneurysm - A case report.

CONCLUSION: The PICA has a very close relationship to the hypoglossal nerve, and its fusiform dilatation could cause isolated hypoglossal nerve dysfunction. Pathological adhesions between hypoglossal rootlets and the PICA aneurysm wall could be a possible contributor in the development and progression of hypoglossal nerve palsy.

[Current perspectives on imaging and treatment of juvenile angiofibromas : A review]. Radiologe. 2020 Oct 06;: Authors: Linxweiler M, Yilmaz U Abstract CLINICAL ISSUE: Juvenile angiofibroma is a benign tumor, whose surgical treatment may be complicated due to intraoperative hemorrhage. The tumors appear as well circumscribed, reddish masses, which often extend into the complete nasal cavity and nasopharynx. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS: Diagnosis is based on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with angiography to identify supplying blood vessels. STANDARD...

AbstractCoronary chronic total occlusions (CTO) are common in patients undergoing coronary angiography, yet the optimal management strategy remains uncertain, with conflicting results from randomized trials. Appropriate patient selection and careful periprocedural planning are imperative for successful patient management. We review the role of adjunctive imaging modalities including myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), echocardiography and computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) in myocardial ischemic quantification, myocardial viability assessment, as well as procedural pla...

Semin intervent Radiol 2020; 37: 356-364 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1715882Endovascular aneurysmal repair (EVAR) has become a prominent modality for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Surveillance imaging is important for the detection of device-related complications, which include endoleak, structural abnormalities, and infection. Currently used modalities include ultrasound, X-ray, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and angiography. Understanding the advantages and drawbacks of each modality, as well available guidelines, can guide selection of the appropriate technique for individual patients. We review ...

AbstractSuperior soft-tissue contrast and high sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for detecting and characterizing disease may provide an expanded role in acute abdominal and pelvic imaging. Although MRI has traditionally not been exploited in acute care settings, commonly used in biliary obstruction and during pregnancy, there are several conditions in which MRI can go above and beyond other modalities in diagnosis, characterization, and providing functional and prognostic information. In this manuscript, we highlight how MRI can help in further assessment and characterization of acute renal emergencies. Curr...

We describe a case of posttraumatic pseudoaneurysm i nvolving the axillary artery, which was initially misdiagnosed as an aggressive soft tissue tumor. The man presented 10 years after an injury from a fall from a tree with a slowly growing mass in the right upper limb region and reduced range of movement. This is a neglected case with a history of tr aditional massage. The patient presented a pathologic fracture of the right proximal humerus and dislocation of the glenohumeral joint. At the beginning, it was suggested to be a primary soft tissue tumor, but after several examinations, including comparable X-ray, ultrasound...

AbstractAortic valve stenosis (AS) is a common valvular heart disease. Recently, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has changed the treatment of severe AS in elderly patients with contraindications to traditional surgical replacement. Echocardiography is conventionally used as the first imaging modality to assess the presence and severity of AS and to provide anatomical and functional information. Nowadays, imaging techniques play a crucial role in the planning of TAVI to define suitable candidates. Computed tomography (CT) is essential to display the anatomy of the aortic valve complex (including aortic annulu...

Modified Simpson’s rule for LVEF Modified Simpson’s rule for LVEF Modified Simpson’s rule for LVEF (left ventricular ejection fraction) is used not only in echocardiography, but also in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging, left ventricular angiography and computed tomography (CT). Basic assumption in Simpson’s rule is that the shape of the left ventricular cavity is a composite of a cylinder (from base to the level of the mitral valve), a truncated cone from mitral valve level to the level of the papillary muscles and a cone from there to the apex [1]. Volume of the cylinder: Am x L/3 Volume o...

Abstract A 37-year-old military service-member was referred to physical therapy with a greater-than-6-month history of low back pain with intermittent and worsening left posterolateral lower-leg pain and paresthesia with activity. He was diagnosed by his primary care physician with exertional compartment syndrome and referred to orthopaedic services. Following examination, the physical therapist ordered a duplex ultrasound, which demonstrated an anomaly at the popliteal artery, resulting in a diagnosis of popliteal artery entrapment syndrome, confirmed by computed tomography angiography and magnetic resonance imag...

We report a case of a young woman with a left middle cerebral artery (MCA) ischemic stroke. The patient had history of HIV-1 infection, with periods of therapeutic non-compliance. Initial computed tomography (CT) imaging studies showed stenosis of the M1 segment of the left MCA, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed infarction of the MCA territory. Serial transcranial Doppler ultrasound revealed progressive occlusion of the MCA and stenosis of the left anterior cerebral artery. Systemic investigation for other causes of stroke was normal. Lumbar puncture revealed a mildly inflammatory cerebrospinal fluid, and HSV-...

AbstractThe life expectancy of people infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is rising due to better access to combination anti-retroviral therapy (ART). Although ART has reduced acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) related mortality and morbidity, there has been an increase in non-AIDS defining illnesses such as diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia and coronary artery disease (CAD). HIV is a disease marked by inflammation which has been associated with specific biological vascular processes increasing the risk of premature atherosclerosis. The combination of pre-existing risk factors, atherosclerosis, A...
