Purpose: To assess predictors of outcome after prostate artery embolization (PAE) for benign prostatic hyperplasia with spherical particle polyvinyl alcohol (sPVA) and compare outcomes with the use of nonspherical particle polyvinyl alcohol (nsPVA).
Purpose: To study long-term graft and patient survival after percutaneous ureteroplasty of ureteric stenosis after renal transplantation and to compare the outcomes to those of patients who did not develop ureteric stenosis.
Uterine fibroids occur in approximately 50% of women over the age of 40 years, and an estimated 50% of those are symptomatic. Menorrhagia is the most common symptom and the primary indication for treatment, although bulk symptoms often occur and can be treated. Pharmacotherapy is typically inadequate unless it can be expected to successfully bridge to menopause or allow for a less-invasive intervention. However, hormonal therapies have risks. Hysterectomy is still the most commonly performed procedure for symptomatic fibroids and has the lowest rate of reintervention (compared with myomectomy or uterine artery embolization [UAE]), but rates of more serious complications are higher and patient satisfaction and ability to return to normal activities may also be less favorable. Myomectomy is not necessarily less morbid than hysterectomy and may have a greater failure rate than UAE. Techniques and devices vary with little standardization, and operator experience is crucial to success. The largest studies of UAE show very low rates of serious complications and rapid recovery. UAE significantly improves symptoms related to uterine fibroids in 85%–90% of patients. Herein, this article will discuss the nature of fibroids and their diagnosis, pharmacotherapy, surgical treatment, and nonsurgical interventional treatment, including UAE and magnetic resonance–guided focused ultrasound.
Purpose: To quantify the correlation between doxorubicin (DOX) delivery and tumor necrosis after drug-eluting bead (DEB) transarterial chemoembolization (TACE).
Purpose: To establish the prognostic value of biopsy of the central and marginal ablation zones for time to local tumor progression (LTP) after radiofrequency (RF) ablation of colorectal cancer liver metastasis (CLM).
Purpose: To prospectively develop individualized low-volume contrast media (CM) protocols adapted to tube voltage in patients undergoing computed tomographic (CT) angiography of the aorta.
PURPOSE: We aimed to determine the publication rate and factors predictive of publication of oral presentations at the annual meetings of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) and the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR).
PURPOSE: We aimed to compare the overall (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) of patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) for hepatocellular carcinoma who did and did not have neoadjuvant doxorubicin drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE).
PURPOSE: We aimed to report a preliminary single-center experience of elective endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) using ultra-low profile (ULP) endografts of 14 F outer diameter.
PURPOSE: We aimed to demonstrate feasibility of the use of a dual-balloon infusion microcatheter for segmental/subsegmental drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE).
Dislodged intrabiliary drainage devices, including catheters, endoprostheses, and stents, may further impair drainage and cause various local reactions, vascular and gastrointestinal tract complications. Endoscopic approaches for management of plastic biliary endoprostheses have been extensively discussed. However, in rare cases of fracture of percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) catheters, only a percutaneous transhepatic technique for retrieving should be applied to avoid further damage by its rigid fragment. We present the adjusted techniques using either a goose neck snare, over-the-wire balloon catheter, or biopsy forceps with image demonstration and reviews. We encountered two patients with PTBD tube fracture and intrahepatic dislodgment. In both patients, percutaneous approaches were used for successfully retrieving and removing the fractured catheter through transhepatic tract: one with the use of a biopsy forceps, another with an inflatable balloon catheter.
PURPOSE: We aimed to assess the safety and effectiveness of mechanical recanalization in patients with ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation within 8 h since symptoms onset and with unknown onset time. We compared time intervals <6 h vs. 6–8 h/unknown onset time, as only limited data are available for a time window beyond 6 h.
Purpose: To compare the technical and clinical effectiveness of ultrasound-accelerated endovascular thrombolysis (USAT) versus pigtail catheter–directed thrombolysis (PCDT) for the treatment of acute pulmonary embolism (PE).
Purpose: To compare overall survival and toxicities after yttrium-90 (90Y) radioembolization and chemoembolization with drug-eluting embolics (DEE) in patients with infiltrative hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Purpose: To develop a new adverse event (AE) classification for the interventional radiology (IR) procedures and evaluate its clinical, research, and educational value compared with the existing Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) classification via an SIR member survey.
