Special Consideration for Intraosseous Arteriovenous Malformations

Semin intervent Radiol 2017; 34: 272-279 DOI: 10.1055/s-0037-1605368Intraosseous arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) have been associated with distortion, hypertrophy, osteolytic skeletal changes, bleeding, leg length discrepancy, and pathologic fracture. Computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is helpful in the evaluation of the extent and depth of intraosseous AVMs and associated soft-tissue AVMs. Treatment approaches can differ, depending on the angiographic classification. Embolotherapy with ethanol, coils, or n-butyl cyanoacrylate is the primary treatment for symptomatic intraosseous AVMs, and the goal of treatment is symptom improvement with few complications.

CONCLUSION: Successful demonstration of vascular network in patients with PT strengthens the idea that SAE technique may be used particularly in severe cases according to CT classification. Our findings suggest that PT may develop in all commonly used bearings. PMID: 30885104 [PubMed - in process]

J Neurol Surg B DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1669974The case described in this video involved a 38-year-old man, who presented with a 4-week history of worsening acute-onset headache, nausea, double vision, and vertigo. On examination, he had impaired tandem gait and diplopia on right horizontal gaze. A computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a hyperdense lesion of the right cerebellopontine angle. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a nonenhancing middle cerebellar peduncle lesion that was isointense on T2-weighed imaging and hypointense on FLAIR imaging (Fig. 1A–B). The differential diagnoses for this lesion included c...

ConclusionsManagement of a retroperitoneal hematoma can commence with recognition of the warning signs of bleeding and neurological impairment, and consulting the appropriate services in case the need for intervention arises. A conservative approach of volume resuscitation and blood transfusion can be used initially, with the need for pausing or reversing anticoagulation being assessed on an individual basis with expert consultation. If intervention becomes necessary, other interventional radiology-based modalities can be used to identify and stop the bleeding source, and interventional radiology-guided drainage can be per...

Rosenwasser, Hekmat Zarzour, Nabeel Herial, Michael Reid Gooch, Pascal Jabbour Spinal arachnoiditis (SA) is an extremely rare and delayed complication of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Little is known about its underlying pathogenesis and subsequent clinical course. A middle-aged patient presented with the worst headache of her life and a grade 3 SAH of the basal-cisterns and posterior fossa was identified on Computed Tomography s...

We present a case of MRI spot sign and review of the literature. Case Report: We present a patient on oral coumadin for history of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolus who presented with a right basal ganglia hemorrhage. She had a computed tomography angiography showing contrast extravasation and also had a hyperacute MRI showing similar contrast extravasation. Follow-up imaging showed hematoma enlargement. Discussion: We present here a case of corroboration of the computed tomography angiography spot sign with the MRI spot sign. The prognostic value of the MRI spot sign is unclear. Future studies should eval...

A 65-year-old woman presented with multiple episodes of melena and a 5 g/mL decrease in hemoglobin level over a 6-month period. Three esophagogastroduodenoscopies and 2 colonoscopies were unremarkable. A capsule showed blood in the duodenum without an obvious source. Repeat upper endoscopy showed blood from the major papilla. Further studies were obtained including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging/magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic ultrasound, bleeding scan, and an angiography —all were unremarkable.

Conclusions: With advances in computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging technology, diagnosis with these less invasive investigations are the favored option. However, traditional catheter angiography is still the gold standard. The management of significant hemobilia is still centered on arterial embolization, but arterial and biliary stents have become accepted alternative therapies.

We describe a patient in whom transverse sinus thrombosis preceded intracranial venous hypertension and PNSAH. These findings supported that the source of the subarachnoid hemorrhage is venous in origin. Patient concerns and diagnoses: A 45-year-old right-handed man was admitted to the hospital with a sudden onset of severe headache associated with nausea, vomiting, and mild photophobia for 6 hours. The patient was fully conscious and totally alert. An emergency brain computed tomography (CT) revealed an acute subarachnoid hemorrhage restricted to the perimesencephalic cisterns. CT angiography revealed no evidence of an...

Conclusions Pseudoaneurysm of petrous ICA as a complication of middle ear cholesteatoma is extremely rare. Spontaneous profuse bleeding maybe the only clinical presentation. Radiological imaging is important to diagnose and assist in treatment. Endovascular technique may be required, followed by surgical treatment for infection control

CONCLUSION: Cerebral IGVs are rare vascular lesions that are treated conservatively when asymptomatic and surgically in the case of rupture or compression of adjacent structures. Given our observation of a high unlikelihood of vascular connections to arteries, and the information obtained with non-invasive imaging techniques such as CTA and MRI was enough to make a clinical decision and avoid the evaluation with invasive procedures.
