Application of a Metal Artifact Reduction Algorithm for C-Arm Cone-Beam CT: Impact on Image Quality and Diagnostic Confidence for Bronchial Artery Embolization
The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential benefit of a dedicated cone-beam-CT streak metal artifact removal technique (SMART) in terms of both image quality and diagnostic confidence in patients undergoing bronchial artery embolization.MethodsA total of 17 patients were included in this retrospective study. The SMART algorithm was applied to images containing streak artifacts generated by a radiopaque intra-arterial catheter tip. Quantitative evaluation of artifact severity was performed via measurement of the Hounsfield units along a closed loop surrounding the catheter tip and was conducted in the frequen...

Transapical Coil Embolization of a Postsurgical Ascending Thoracic Aortic Pseudoaneurysm
AbstractAscending aortic pseudoaneurysms are a rare but potentially life-threatening complication of aortic root or cardiac surgery. Surgical repair is established as first-line treatment; however, patient comorbidities, technical considerations, and anatomic limitations often preclude patients from repeat surgery, thus necessitating alternative approaches. Here, we present a case of coil embolization of an ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm via a transapical approach in a particularly complex scenario where percutaneous and peripheral access was technically unfeasible.

AbstractSubstantial improvements have been made in the systemic treatment of colorectal cancer over the last two decades. Median overall survival (OS) of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) has been constantly increased and the most recent first-line studies exceeded the 30-month median overall survival. The standard first-line regimen for mCRC is a combination of chemotherapy plus a biological agent either targeting the main angiogenic growth factor vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) via Bevacizumab or by antibodies targeting the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGRF) via Panitumumab or Cetuximab.

Inferior Vena Cava Filters in Hemodynamically Unstable Patients with Acute Pulmonary Embolism: How Often are They Used? Data from Multicenter Prospective Registries on Acute Pulmonary Embolism

During the last 2  decades, some investigations have demonstrated that the use of IVC filters in high-risk PE patients, treated or not with systemic thrombolysis, was able to reduce the short-term mortality rate if inserted early after the acute event. The aim of the present review is to analyze the use of IVC filte rs in high-risk PE patients enrolle...
