COVID-19-associated hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms.

Liver Int 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

AP-HP, Hôpital Necker Enfants Malades, Service d'Imagerie Adulte, Paris, France.

Cases of coronary and pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysms secondary to COVID-19 have been reported in the literature and are supposed to be secondary to inflammatory and vasculitis processes linked to a viral multisystem inflammatory syndrome. Although the incidence of COVID-19-associated liver injury ranges from 14% to 53% in hospitalized patients [5], COVID-19-associated hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms have never been reported so far. We present the case of a patient whose follow-up CT after cryoablation of renal cell carcinoma revealed seven fusiform pseudoaneurysms of the two hepatic arteries secondary to COVID-19. Read More

PET/MR Imaging of a Lung Metastasis Model of Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma with (2S,4R)-4-[F]Fluoroglutamine.

Mol Imaging Biol 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Department of Urology, MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.
