Migration of Nonfibered Packing Coils Used to Treat Peripheral Pseudoaneurysms: Report of 3 Cases
This report describes 3 cases of peripheral pseudoaneurysm embolization with the use of Penumbra packing coils in which coils migrated into the lumens of adjacent viscera: 2 into the duodenum and 1 into the vagina. The coils passed spontaneously in 2 cases and required endoscopic removal in the third. There were no immediate or delayed bleeding or infectious complications following migration. The majority of previously reported coil migration cases have occurred following treatment of pseudoaneurysms adjacent to air-filled structures, and this observation is an important consideration during pretreatment planning.

Interventional radiology (IR) is a diverse and innovative specialty that provides a wide variety of imaging-guided minimally invasive procedures for treating patients. The fundamental importance of IR in health care is illustrated by IR ’s recognition as a primary medical specialty in 2012 by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Although IR is a relatively new specialty, the breadth of knowledge needed in the field and the complexity of IR can be daunting, especially for those newly introduced to the field.

Accessory Left Gastric Artery Arising from Inferior Phrenic Artery: Angiographic Findings in 5 Patients
Recent studies published in this journal and elsewhere (1,2) have shown promising data on the therapeutic potential of left gastric artery (LGA) embolization for the treatment of obesity and its associated comorbidities. Ischemia of the gastric fundus, which plays an important role in the hormonal regulation of appetite, is thought to be the primary mechanism underlying the effects of bariatric embolization (3). Therefore, a thorough understanding of gastric arterial anatomy, including variant anatomy, is important, as embolization of any accessory vessels supplying the gastric fundus may have potential benefit in optimizi...

Combined Transarterial Chemoembolization and Percutaneous Radiofrequency Ablation: More Promising Evidence of Effectiveness in Treating Solitary, Medium-Sized Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Locoregional therapy (LRT) has become a cornerstone in the management of patients with surgically unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Transarterial chemoembolization and percutaneous radiofrequency (RF) ablation —both prototypical LRTs with long track records of use—prolong overall survival (OS) in HCC patients (1–3) but have shortcomings when used independently (4). Although transarterial chemoembolization is the current standard of care for patients with Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer stage B (interm ediate-stage) HCC, it is considered a palliative treatment rather than a curative treatment.

Soft-Tissue Tumors Mimicking Arteriovenous Malformations
Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical examination, and computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings; biopsy is rarely performed because of a high risk of bleeding (1). Accordingly, there is a chance that some diseases can resemble AVM, which may result in poor clinical outcomes (2). The present report describes 4 cases of soft-tissue tumors that were initially misdiagnosed as AVMs and treated with ethanol embolotherapy. The institutional review board approved this report, and informed consent was waived. (Source: Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology : JVIR)

Single-Step Method for Pull-Type Gastrostomy Tube Placement
Single-step pull-type gastrostomy tube (PGT) placement is a method involving gastric puncture with a curved 18-gauge trocar needle allowing retrograde cannulation of the gastroesophageal junction without use of a sheath or snare. This retrospective review of 102 patients who underwent single-step PGT placement demonstrated 91% success in advancing the wire up the esophagus using only the curved trocar. Successful placement of a gastrostomy tube was 100%. Two major and 2 minor complications occurred within 30 days, all unrelated to the single-step technique.

“Cheese Wire” Fenestration of Dissection Intimal Flap to Facilitate Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair in Chronic Dissection
Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for aneurysmal chronic dissection is often complicated by retrograde filling of the false lumen and dissected distal landing zone. A “cheese wire”-style fenestration of the dissection intimal flap can create a landing zone facilitating TEVAR. This technique successfully aided TEVAR in 3 patients with an average age of 57.3 years. Complications included type III endoleak requiring relining and renal artery occlusion requiring stent placement. Average duration of clinical follow-up was 19 ± 4 months.
