This study assessed the effectiveness and safety of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy and catheter-directed thrombolysis combined with stent placement in the management of iliac vein compression syndrome with acute iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT).MethodsFrom December 2014 to April 2016, there were 46 patients with DVT who underwent percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy and catheter-directed thrombolysis and stenting for acute proximal DVT with computed tomography-verified iliofemoral stenosis. The Venous Registry Index was used for evaluating the degree of patency after pharmacomechanical thrombolysis; the preva...

This study examined gated cardiac CT scans to make observations regarding the size and proportions of the valve leaflets, sinuses of Valsalva, and sinotubular junction. One hundred and fifty gated cardiac CT scans were performed for a variety of clinical indications. Area of each cusp (short axis plane) was measured along with sinus height (from leaflet base to sinotubular junction), sinus width (from central coaptation point to outer sinus edge), annular perimeter, perimeter at mid-sinus level, and perimeter at the sinotubular junction. The right coronary cusp was largest, the left cusp smallest, and the non-coronary cusp...

Publication date: Available online 18 July 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Elena Segal, Aharon Schif, Imad Kasis, Sarit RavidAbstractWe aimed to identify the most common causes of acute ataxia in children in the era of widespread varicella vaccination and the yield of commonly used diagnostic work-up. This retrospective study reviewed the medical records of children who presented with ataxia of less than 72 h duration, over the last 12 years. Associated signs and symptoms, laboratory, EEG and neuroimaging studies, final diagnosis and clinical findings at discharge and during follow-up were studie...

A 21-year-old man presented to the hospital after a syncopal episode. The head computed tomography scan demonstrated obstructive hydrocephalus associated with a suprasellar 5.1-cm mass. Owing to the constellation of imaging and clinical manifestations (Cushing's triad), emergent operative decompression was performed, revealing suprasellar germinoma on pathologic examination.

ConclusionThere is an association between the EL ratio and widening of the LIOD. An EL ratio greater than 23% could be used to moderately predict a wide LIOD. A large external bony defect may be associated with lateral displacement of the orbit causing true hypertelorism. Therefore, orbital translocation must be considered in patients with a wide LIOD.

This study used CT scans from 64 Cretan adults (32 male and 32 female) to produce three-dimensional models of each individual's cranium and skin surface. Using the models, the soft tissue depths were measured at 36 craniofacial landmarks; the means and standard deviations were calculated for the general Cretan population, and for male and female Cretans separately. Cretan facial soft tissue depths were then compared to those of French, Slovak, and Korean adults. 16 of the 36 landmarks exhibited sex differences among Cretans, with males having consistently thicker depths than females. The facial soft tissue depths of Cretan...

Authors: Karaca S, Enercan M, Levent Ulusoy O, Hamaoglu A Abstract T55 patients with cement-augmented pedicle screw were retrospectively analyzed. All patients underwent computed tomography at a minimum of 2 years after index operation. Computed tomography scans were analyzed to determine pedicle screw loosening, cement leakage, and fusion rates at augmented levels. The purpose of this study was to analyze the efficacy and complications of cement augmentation in elderly patients. Screw loosening occurred at fused levels in all patients, except one patient with pseudoarthrosis. All cases of screw loosening occurred ...

DISCUSSION: This Babcock technique with endoscopic necrosectomy has not been previously described in the literature, to our knowledge. Babcock forceps were an ideal tool in our case because they were able to gain access to the obstruction in the stent, but the "teeth" are small and dull enough to prevent from catching onto the metal stent mesh.

Resumo A hist ória natural do hematoma intramural (HI) e da úlcera penetrante (UP) é muito variável, já que podem progredir para a formação de aneurisma, ruptura, dissecção, e podem até mesmo regredir, no caso específico do HI. Exames de imagem têm crescente papel no manejo clínico e operatório da U P e do HI. Ao contrário das projeções semelhantes a úlcera, achados de lagos sanguíneos não são relatados nos estudos tomográficos de pacientes com HI. O entendimento das carac...
