Yttrium-90 Radioembolization of Hepatocellular Carcinoma–Performance, Technical Advances, and Future Concepts
Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 388-397DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1564704Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a lethal tumor, claiming over half a million lives per year. Treatment of HCC is commonly performed without curative intent, and palliative options dominate, including catheter-based therapies, namely, transarterial chemoembolization and yttrium-90 (90Y) radioembolization. This review will showcase the performance of 90Y radioembolization for the treatment of HCC, focusing on recent seminal data and technical advances. In particular, novel radioembolization treatment concepts are discussed and compared with conventional HCC...

Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 379-383DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1564812Over the past decade, there has been a gradual evolution of the retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter, as the indications for caval filtration have expanded since the first such filters came into use. However, the particular design of retrievable or optional filters has introduced a subset of both symptomatic and asymptomatic device failures that have prompted a reassessment in the approach to patient selection as well as a new lexicon of technical considerations when considering retrieval.

Venous Thromboembolic Disease: The Use of the Aspiration Thrombectomy Device AngioVac
Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 374-378DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1564792Central venous thrombosis is a complex problem, particularly in cases where the thrombus burden is large. Several interventional techniques and devices have been developed over the past 15 to 20 years to manage this entity, but the vast majority of them still need the concomitant use of thrombolytics to achieve an optimal result. AngioVac (AngioDynamics, Latham, NY) is the first aspiration thrombectomy device capable to remove a larger burden of undesired intravascular material such as thrombus, tumor, and foreign bodies without the need of lytics.

The device has evolved over the years and multiple versions have been launched into the market. Each of the versions of the device has some important modifications in terms of the size of the introducer's system, number of layers, and resultant thrombogenicity. It is very important for the operator to become familiar with the unique features of the AVP, and to understan...

Hydrogel-Coated Coils: Product Description and Clinical Applications
Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 343-348DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1564809Hydrogel-coated coils are truly detachable coils with a platinum core covered with hydrogel. The coils are available in 0.018- and 0.035-in systems. These coils have the ability to expand up to four times their size ∼20 minutes after deployment, thus providing a very effective mechanical vascular occlusion effect. The vessel-occlusive effect of these coils is a volume, space-occupying effect, not a thrombotic effect, as seen in fibered coils. Hydrogel-coated coils were originally developed and designed to treat brain aneurysms; however, their use has ex...

Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 339-342DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1564813Carbon dioxide (CO2) has been used as an imaging agent since the early 1900s. The intravascular use of CO2 for imaging began in the 1960s. Its use was limited, as the available technology for imaging and safe delivery was poor. Even until today its use as an imaging agent has not reached its potential because of non–user friendly and cumbersome delivery methods. Confusing tanks, valves, and assembly of do-it-yourself systems create an aversion to its use. As an invisible agent with properties vastly different from liquid contrast, well-seasoned interv...

This article is composed of two sections that together address new endovascular approaches for treating aortic aneurysms with difficult proximal neck anatomy. The first section will explore advancements in the traditional EVAR approach for hostile neck anatomy that maximize the use of the native proximal landing zone; the second section will discuss a technique that was developed to extend the native proximal landing zone and maintain perfusion to vital aortic branches using common, off-the-shelf components: the snorkel technique.

Predictive Factors for the Development of Type 2 Endoleak Following Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 272-277DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1558466Type 2 endoleak (T2EL) is the most common complication following endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for abdominal aortic aneurysms. The management of T2ELs is controversial due to the relatively low incidence of negative outcomes when secondary intervention is avoided. Some studies challenge this practice as demonstrated by adverse events following conservative treatment of T2ELs. Evidence has shown that the preoperative computed tomographic angiogram can predict the development of T2EL based on a patient's arterial anatomy, specifically vessels associated...

Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 259-264DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1556825The management of endoleaks remains an inherent challenge to endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), particularly as evolving techniques and devices have allowed treatment of increasingly complex aneurysm anatomy. Endovascular techniques are the favored modality for endoleak repair and include techniques to bridge the endoleak defector and embolize the endoleak nidus and inflow/outflow vessels. Conversion to surgical repair remains the definitive option in cases where less invasive methods have failed or are precluded. In this article, the authors review evide...

Percutaneous Transhepatic Biliary Drainage Complicated by Bilothorax
Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 054-056DOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1396965Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) is a well-established and safe technique for the management of biliary obstructions and leaks. While approach is variable based on operator preference, patient anatomy, and indications; PTBD is commonly performed via a right-sided intercostal route. With a right-sided approach, pleural complications may be encountered. The authors describe a case of a right PTBD complicated by a leak into the pleural space, with the subsequent development of bilothorax.[...]Thieme Medical Publishers 333 Seventh Avenue, New Y...

Complications of Transjugular Biopsies
Semin intervent Radiol 2015; 32: 042-048DOI: 10.1055/s-0034-1396963Transvenous biopsy was first performed in 1964 by Charles Dotter. Now routinely performed in the liver and kidney by interventional radiologists, the transjugular approach to biopsy has assumed a central role in coagulopathic patients. Major arterial complications from transjugular liver and renal biopsy are rare. In this article, the authors describe such complications in both organs that necessitated selective endovascular coil embolization.[...]Thieme Medical Publishers 333 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001, USA.Article in Thieme eJournals:Table of cont...
