Division of Interventional Radiology, Northwestern University, 737 N. Michigan Ave Suite 1600, Chicago, Illinois, 60611. Electronic address:

Purpose: To assess the cost-effectiveness of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) placements using an ultrasound and electrocardiogram-guided system versus external measurements and confirmatory chest X-rays (CXRs).

Materials And Methods: Sixty-eight guided PICC placements were performed in 63 outpatients (mean age, 43 ± 13 years; 50% male) and compared to 68 propensity score-matched PICC placements (mean age, 44 ± 13 years; 56% male) performed using external measurements by the same operators. Post-placement CXRs were used to confirm final catheter tip positioning. Read More

CT-Guided Percutaneous Gastrostomy without Preliminary Placement of a Nasogastric Tube.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Interventional and Diagnostic Imaging, Cancer Center Antoine Lacassagne, Nice 06189, France. Electronic address:

Percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy (PRG) requires preliminary gastric inflation through a nasogastric tube (NGT) to safely perform gastric puncture. However, in case of pharyngeal or esophageal obstruction, NGT placement may be impossible even with a hydrophilic angiography catheter and wire. This brief report describes percutaneous computed tomography (CT)-guided gastrostomy with a 2-stick approach without nasogastric insufflation in 13 patients. Read More

Outcomes of Patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma Treated with Conventional Transarterial Chemoembolization Using Guidance Software.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Jan;30(1):10-18

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Fukuiken Saiseikai Hospital, 7-1, Funabashi, Wadanaka-cho, Fukui 918-8503, Japan.

Purpose: To evaluate the outcomes of conventional transarterial chemoembolization using guidance software for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients.

Materials And Methods: One hundred two patients with treatment-naïve HCC with ≤ 7-cm and ≤ 5 lesions treated with conventional transarterial chemoembolization using guidance software were selected. Technical success was classified into 3 grades by computed tomography performed 1 week after transarterial chemoembolization: (i) A, complete embolization with a safety margin; (ii) B, entire tumor embolization without a safety margin; and (iii) C, incomplete embolization.

In Vitro Evaluation of the Polymerization Properties of N-Butyl Cyanoacrylate/Iodized Oil Mixtures for Lymphatic Interventions.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Jan 7;30(1):110-117. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Radiology, University of Bonn, Sigmund-Freud-Str. 25, 53105 Bonn, Germany. Electronic address:

Purpose: To evaluate polymerization of N-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA)/iodized oil mixtures for lymphatic interventions in vitro.

Materials And Methods: Polymerization times of different NBCA/iodized oil mixtures (ratios of 1:0-1:7) were investigated in a static and dynamic experimental setup (performed in a lymph flow model in a silicone tube). Eight lymphatic samples with different triglyceride (TG) concentrations (low TGs, < 50 mg/dL; medium TGs, approximately 100-400 mg/dL; high TGs, > 700 mg/dL) were investigated. Read More

Pilot Study Comparing Systemic and Tissue Pharmacokinetics of Irinotecan and Metabolites after Hepatic Drug-Eluting Chemoembolization.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Jan 6;30(1):19-22. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Center for Interventional Oncology, Radiology and Imaging Sciences, National Institutes of Health, 9000 Rockville Pike, Building 10, Rm 1C367, Bethesda, MD 20892.

Differences in drug metabolism associated with UGT1A1 polymorphism could result in individualized local response to hepatic chemoembolization with irinotecan-eluting beads (DEBIRI) or predictable toxicities. Five patients with inoperable hepatic metastases from colorectal or anal malignancies treated with DEBIRI were assessed for UGT1A1 mutations. No difference in area under the curve (AUC) for SN38 in normal liver and tumor tissue samples was noted with variant or wild-type UBT1A1 (P = . Read More

Mechanical Thrombectomy Using the Solitaire AB Device for Acute Embolic Mesenteric Ischemia.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2019 Jan 7;30(1):43-48. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Department of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Nanjing First Hospital, Nanjing Medical University, No. 68 Changle Road, Nanjing 210006, China. Electronic address:

Purpose: To review preliminary efficacy and safety outcomes of mechanical thrombectomy using the Solitaire AB device combined with thromboaspiration for treatment of acute embolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA).

Materials And Methods: Between October 2015 and October 2017, 9 patients (average age, 77 y; range, 62-84 y) presenting with acute mesenteric ischemia attributable to embolic occlusion at the stem of the SMA were retrospectively evaluated for mechanical thrombectomy using the Solitaire AB device combined with manual thromboaspiration. Adjunctive stent implantation was performed to correct pre-existing atherosclerotic stenosis or as a rapid recanalization solution after unsuccessful thrombectomy. Read More
