Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Interventional Radiology, Galway University Hospital, Galway, Ireland.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to assess the applicability of direct computed tomography venography (DCTV) in assessing dominant inflow vein in the femoral confluence in extensive chronic iliofemoral venous obstruction, using venography as the gold standard.

Methods: All DCTVs performed in symptomatic patients with previous iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis subsequently submitted to venography in the period from January 2014 to August 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. Two groups were defined depending on whether the femoral vein (FV) or the deep femoral vein (DFV) was the dominant inflow on venography in order to identify predictors of DFV as dominant inflow in DCTV.

Technical and Imaging Outcomes from the UK Registry of Prostate Artery Embolization (UK-ROPE) Study: Focusing on Predictors of Clinical Success.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Department of Interventional Radiology, University Hospital Southampton, Tremona Road, Southampton, SO16 6YD, UK.

Introduction: The UK Registry of Prostate Artery Embolization (UK-ROPE) was a prospective, multicentre study comparing PAE against surgical therapies for symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). A wealth of data was collected supplementary to the main study outcomes which provide a snapshot of UK PAE practice. We aimed to interpret these data in the hope of providing insight into factors which affect clinical outcome and radiation dose. Read More

Double-Barreled and Branched Endografting for Thoracoabdominal Aortic Aneurysm: The Hexapus Technique.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2019 Mar 6;42(3):455-459. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Division of Cardiovascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, Taipei Veterans General Hospital, No. 201, Sec. 2, Shih-Pai Road, Taipei, Taiwan.

Objective: To treat thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (TAAA), we introduced an alternative "Hexapus" technique by double-barreled and branched endografting.

Technique And Result: We established 2 transfemoral and 2 transaxillary access routes first and then deployed two abdominal bifurcated stentgrafts landing at the descending thoracic aorta through transfemoral routes, respectively. Two pairs of parallel stentgrafts were deployed via bilateral transaxillary route from each of contralateral limbs of main body stentgrafts to visceral arteries. Read More

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Medical Scientific Affairs, B.Braun Melsungen AG, Berlin, Germany.

Objectives: The principal objective of this pooled analysis was to investigate various patient and lesion characteristics on late lumen loss (LLL) after drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty.

Background: Four randomized controlled trials (THUNDER, FEMPAC, PACIFIER, CONSEQUENT) were pooled to investigate the influence of various patient and lesion characteristics on DCB angioplasty and on plain old balloon angioplasty (POBA) in patients with femoropopliteal artery disease.

Methods: Angiographic data from 355 patients were pooled to assess the impact of patient (demographics, cardiovascular risk factors, cardiovascular co-morbidities, Rutherford stages) and lesion-/procedure-related (location, occlusion, length, restenosis, calcification, subintimal crossing, post-dilatation, dissection, stenting) characteristics on LLL.

Nuclear Factor-κB is Activated in Filter-Implanted Vena Cava.

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol 2018 Dec 10. Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Department of Surgery, Navicent Health Physician Group, Mercer University School of Medicine and The Medical Center Navicent Health, 1550 College Street, Macon, GA, 31207, USA.

Background: Implantation of a retrievable vena cava filter (VCF) is an effective method for preventing pulmonary embolism. Retrieval of filters, however, may be difficult due to intimal hyperplasia and inflammation in the cava wall. The transcription factor nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB) plays an important role in regulation of numerous genes participating in the inflammatory and proliferative responses of cells. Read More
