[Diagnostic error of thrombosis of the inferior vena cava with contrast-CT in tricuspid valve insufficiency].

Bildgebung 1996 Jun;63(2):130-2

Medizinische Klinik, Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.

Sonographic evidence of a cystic adrenal tumour was found in a 73-year-old female patient with a 6-month history of chest pain and dyspnoea. A computed tomogram of the abdomen revealed, in addition to the 5-cm lesion, a contrast medium-free area in the vena cava inferior, leading to an initial diagnosis of recurrent pulmonary emboli due to a thrombosis of the vena cava inferior. Further diagnostic procedures excluded emboli and indicated a dilating cardiomyopathy with mitral and tricuspid regurgitation. Read More

Chirurgische Klinik, Klinikum rechts der Isar, Technische Universität München, Germany.

Hepatic trauma remains one of the most serious problems in abdominal injury. Whenever possible a non-resectional approach is clearly preferred. Refinements of interventional radiology as an adjunct to surgery in blunt liver trauma may play an increasingly vital role in reducing mortality. Read More

We are reporting the case of a 94-year-old male patient with a 10-year history of Parkinson's disease, who was admitted to our hospital with acute obstruction of esophageal passage. Esophageal obstruction was refractory to endoscopic intervention. However, discontinuation of the pre-existing levodopa medication led to its resolution within hours. Read More

Power Doppler--a new tool for transcranial duplex assessment of intracranial vasculature.

Bildgebung 1996 Mar;63(1):35-8

Neurologische Klinik, Ernst-Moritz-Amdt-Universität Greifswald, German.

The present study was undertaken to assess the clinical use of power Doppler (PD) as a new tool for transcranial vessel imaging. Power Doppler displays the integrated power of the Doppler signal instead of the Doppler frequency shift used in the conventional color flow Doppler (CFD) technique. Twenty-one patients were evaluated who had intracranial malformations or arterial stenoses [4 middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenoses, 2 intracranial carotid stenoses, 7 arteriovenous malformations (AVM), 5 intracranial carotid aneurysms, 3 Moya-Moya syndromes].

Cholangioscopy in the mother-baby technique is well accepted and widespread these days. On the other hand, the peroral pancreaticoscopy (POPS) is still in the initial phase of development. In cases of doubtful stenoses, duct discontinuation, and radiolucent shadows during an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) the POPS can be carried out as a clarifying examination.

Prophylactic treatment of patients with gallbladder stones today is obsolete. After secured diagnosis the patients and their physicians are waiting for the development of painful symptoms, mostly for years. Follow-up studies of gallbladder stones over decades show that there is no stability: especially the cholesterol stones change their size, shape, composition, and number during the waiting period for surgery.

Of 93 endoscopic drainage procedures of pancreatic pseudocysts carried out since 1985, at least 50% were of lasting success. The authors' approach is explained with a review of the literature on various drainage techniques. We consider the puncture of a pseudocyst justified only on clinical grounds: the patient's complaints rather than morphological criteria lead to the decision to perform a drainage procedure.

Diagnostic evaluation and surgical management of the aberrant right subclavian artery.

Klinik für Herz-, Thorax- und Gefässchirurgie, Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin.

A case of dysphagia and dyspnea secondary to compression of the esophagus and the trachea by an aberrant right subclavian artery is presented. As the pathology of the aberrant right subclavian artery is extremely diverse, the diagnosis without radiologic investigation is hardly feasible. Conventional angiography of the aortic arch may be avoided by 3-dimensional magnetic resonance angiography, that is a suitable noninvasive method to diagnose and visualize the vascular pathology and the postoperative results after corrective vascular surgery.

The aim of this paper was to compare the diagnostic value of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the evaluation of malignant tumors of the temporal bone, of paragangliomas of the glomus tympanicum and jugulare as well as of malignant tumors of the para- and retropharyngeal space. 67 patients with tumors of the temporal bone--28 cases with malignant tumors and 39 cases with paragangliomas--were examined with MRI and CT. MRI had true-positive findings in nearly 93, CT in 89% of the patients with malignant tumors of the temporal bone. Read More

3D ultrasound measurement of atherosclerotic plaque volume in carotid arteries.

The aim of the present study was to measure the volume of atherosclerotic plaques using three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging of the carotid arteries and to reduce intra- and interexaminer variabilities in follow-up scans of atherosclerotic plaques. The noninvasive quantification of human atherosclerosis by 3D ultrasound was performed by a 3D computer-based image reconstruction (3D ultrasound). The linear movements of the transducer were driven by a motor triggered by ECG. Read More

It is meanwhile generally accepted that endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) and endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST) can be performed in acute pancreatitis without major complications. However, it is still unsettled if these techniques are useful in the treatment of patients with acute pancreatitis. Based on the available data ERC is obviously the best technique to define a biliary origin of acute pancreatitis. Read More

Intravascular ultrasound in tumor staging.

Authors:

Institut für Röntgendiagnostik, Technische Universität München.

Our preliminary results show that intravascular ultrasound scanning yielded the correct diagnosis in each patient who underwent surgery. We therefore conclude that this method is a potent adjunct to diagnostic procedures in pretherapeutic tumor staging when applied directly to the questionable region of the vessels. In contrast, evaluation of suspected tumor infiltration of the portal vein by positioning the catheter in the inferior vena cava or aorta was generally impossible due to technical problems.

Transcatheter coil occlusion of an intrahepatic arterioportal fistula in a transplanted liver.

Bildgebung 1993 Dec;60(4):215-8

Klinik für Diagnostische Radiologie, Medizinische Hochschule, Hannover.

The incidence of arterioportal fistulas (APFs) following percutaneous transhepatic procedures is quoted to be between 5 and 20%; the majority of them remain clinically asymptomatic and do not require any treatment. However, an APF large enough to cause a reversal of blood flow in the portal vein is rather uncommon especially in a transplanted liver where it may have potentially hazardous consequences. We report on a 21-year-old female patient who received a liver transplantation on account of a Budd-Chiari syndrome. Read More

Abteilung Klinische Radiologie, Radiologische Universitätsklinik, Heidelberg.

In a conventional radiographic skeletal survey of 90 hemodialyzed patients, 28% (25 patients) showed renal osteopathy; 27 patients (30%) had periarticular bone cysts and 3 patients (3%) presented radiological evidence of destructive spondylarthropathy. The bone cysts were most commonly identified in the carpal bones and around the hips and shoulders; destructive spondylarthropathy was seen in the cervical and lumbar spine. Whereas characteristic radiographic changes of renal osteodystrophy could already be identified in the 1st year of dialysis, periarticular bone cysts occurred at the earliest after 2 years, most frequently after 5 years of dialysis.
