[Artery of Percheron occlusion: Value of MRI. A review of six cases].

J Radiol 2011 Dec 16;92(12):1113-21. Epub 2011 Nov 16.

Service d'imagerie médicale, hôpital d'instruction des Armées Desgenettes, 108, boulevard Pinel, 69375 Lyon cedex 03, France.

Blood supply to the human thalami is complex and multiple variants exist. The artery of Percheron is one of those variants and is characterized by a solitary arterial trunk that branches from one of the proximal segments of either posterior cerebral artery and supplies blood to the paramedian thalami. Its occlusion results in bilateral paramedian thalamic infarction sometimes extending to the midbrain. Read More

Service de radiologie I, hôpital de Hautepierre, CHRU de Strasbourg, avenue Molière, 67098 Strasbourg cedex, France.

Sinonasal and temporal bone infections may extend to the skull, skull base, meninges, pericerebral spaces, brain parenchyma, dural sinuses, deep cerebral or cortical veins, intracranial arteries and cranial nerves either via contiguous or hematogeneous spread. The site of infection dictates the sites of potential complications: orbital with ethmoid sinusitis, cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis and oculomotor palsies with sphenoid sinusitis, transverse sinus thrombophlebitis with mastoiditis and superior sagittal sinus thrombophlebitis with frontal sinusitis. All may result in brain abscess. Read More

Service de neuroradiologie, hôpital Pellegrin, CHU de Bordeaux, place Amélie-Raba-Léon, 33076 Bordeaux cedex, France.

Imaging evaluation of the temporal bone often is neglected at the acute phase in patients with head trauma due to the urgent need to evaluate the brain. It should nonetheless be an integral part of this evaluation by the addition of thin dedicated CT images. Knowledge of the mechanisms of traumatic injuries combined to multiplanar reconstructions of the acquisition volume lead to accurate depiction of temporal bone injuries, including lesions of ossicles and footplate, structures measuring 2 or 3 mm.

Service de radiologie interventionnelle, département d'imagerie médicale, institut Gustave-Roussy, 114, rue Édouard-Vaillant, 94805 Villejuif cedex, France.

Radiofrequency ablation is an image-guided technique of percutaneous tumor destruction using high frequency alternating current. Accuracy in needle placement and the selection of the imaging modality are key elements of the success of the procedure. The volume of ablation with a single needle insertion is limited to about 40 mm and the technique is most successful for tumors less than 3 cm in diameter with rapid decrease in efficacy for larger tumors.

Several interventional radiology procedures are available for the management of cancer pain. In this article, we will briefly review the different procedures and their value in the setting of cancer pain management under two main categories: indirect action (regional anesthesia from neurolysis) and direct action on the tumor. Percutaneous ablation of bone tumors: alcohol, laser, radiofrequency, microwaves, ultrasound, and cryoablation. Read More

Unité de traitement des douleurs en cancérologie, département d'anesthésie-réanimation, institut Bergonié, 229, cours de l'Argonne, 33076 Bordeaux cedex, France.

Bone metastases are frequently symptomatic. The pain is specific due to its pathophysiology, characteristics and treatment. Conventional antalgic pain management may be insufficient and management should be multifacetted, global and multidisciplinary. Read More

T de Baere

J Radiol 2011 Sep 31;92(9):789-95. Epub 2011 Aug 31.

Institut Gustave-Roussy, 114, avenue Édouard-Vaillant, 94805 Villejuif, France.

Since the introduction of radiofrequency tumor ablation of liver tumors in the late 1990s, local destructive therapies have been applied to lung, renal and bone lesions. In addition, new techniques have been introduced to compensate for the limitations of radiofrequency ablation, namely the reduced rate of complete ablation for tumors larger than 3 cm and tumors near vessels larger than 3 mm. Microwave ablation is currently evolving rapidly. Read More

[Percutaneous ablation of renal tumors: radiofrequency ablation or cryoablation?].

J Radiol 2011 Sep 1;92(9):774-88. Epub 2011 Sep 1.

Département de radiologie interventionnelle, hôpitaux universitaires de Strasbourg, Nouvel Hôpital Civil, 1, place de l'Hôpital, 67000 Strasbourg, France.

Percutaneous ablation of renal tumors, including radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation, are increasingly being used for small tumors as an alternative to surgery for poor surgical candidates. Compared to radiofrequency ablation, cryoablation has several advantages: improved volume control and preservation of adjacent structures due to the excellent depiction of the ice ball on CT and MRI; better protection of the collecting system for central tumor with reduced risk of postprocedural urinary fistula. The main pitfall of cryoablation is the higher cost. Read More

[Percutaneous radiofrequency and other liver ablation techniques: 2011 update].

Authors:
O Seror

J Radiol 2011 Sep 1;92(9):763-73. Epub 2011 Sep 1.

Service de radiologie, hôpital Jean-Verdier, avenue du 14-Juillet, 93143 Bondy, France.

Percutaneous ablation of liver tumors was initially limited to patients that were not surgical candidates and with a limited number of relatively small liver lesions. Because of the diversification of techniques and technologies, percutaneous liver ablation has progressively been integrating to more and more complex therapeutic strategies available to a wider group of patients. Local knowledge and expertise with these techniques, largely dominated by radiofrequency ablation, often dictate the role of these techniques in the management of patients with liver tumors.

[Interventional radiology in oncology in private practice].

Authors:
J-L Dehaene

J Radiol 2011 Sep 1;92(9):757-62. Epub 2011 Sep 1.

Service de radiologie, polyclinique du Bois, 44, avenue Marx-Dormoy, 59000 Lille, France.

Interventional oncology in private practice requires expert training and can be performed in a stand-alone facility for type 1 procedures in a hospital setting for type 2 and 3 procedures where subspecialized radiologists, state-of-the-art equipment, and postprocedure hospital monitoring are available. A multidisciplinary effort with oncologists, internal medicine physicians and anesthesiologists is necessary. The practice of interventional oncology requires around the clock availability, meticulous and established protocols and procedures and a financial investment. Read More
