Preservation of Renal Function after Major Bleeding Events due to Ultrasound-Guided Parenchymal Renal Biopsy.
Clinical outcomes of major bleeding events following ultrasound-guided native and allograft parenchymal renal biopsy were evaluated. Forty-eight post-biopsy bleeding complications (Society of Interventional Radiology [SIR] adverse event grade ≥ 2) from 2002-2018 were identified. The primary outcome assessed was renal function. Clinical outcomes and interventions undertaken were noted including blood transfusion, angiography with or without embolization, nephrostomy tube placement, surgery, nephrectomy, hospitalization, intensive care u nit admission, dialysis, and survival.

Abstract No. 1 ▪ ABSTRACT OF THE YEAR Y90 radioembolization to the prostate gland: proof of concept in a canine model and clinical translation
The current standard for intermediate- to high-risk prostate cancer (T2-T3) is radiotherapy. Existing approaches have high recurrence rates due to dose limitations, with significant toxicities to the bladder and rectum. In preparation for translation to human application, we investigated the feasibility and safety of prostate artery radioembolization (RE) in a canine model dose escalation study.

Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is an uncommon cause of pediatric hypertension. Guidelines for the work up and management of pediatric RAS have not been established. The most widely reported etiology of pediatric renovascular disease has been fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD); however, other etiologies, including middle aortic syndrome and vasculitides have been described. We reviewed cases of pediatric RAS at our institution in order to identify etiologies, management, and long-term clinical outcomes of pediatric renal artery stenosis in our population.

TACE is the most widely used locoregional therapy recommended for patients with intermediate-stage HCC (Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer stage B). Despite the significant tumor responses that can be achieved with TACE, tumors commonly recur, progress, or are refractory. Clinical trials have explored the combination of TACE with tyrosine kinase inhibitors; however, these have not reported improved outcomes. HCC possesses a unique immunosuppressive microenvironment, which makes it an attractive target for immunotherapies, particularly immune checkpoint inhibitors.

The majority of HCCs are treated with palliative therapy, which includes Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and systemic therapy, while transarterial radioembolization still struggles to find a place in evidence-based treatment.
