Vestn Otorinolaringol 2020 ;85(5):61-64

Scientific Research Clinical Institute. L.I. Sverzhevsky of the Moscow Health Department, Moscow, Russia.

The article describes statistical data on patients with angioedema (AE) in the structure of ambulance services and four large multidisciplinary hospitals with otorhinolaryngological departments of the city of Moscow for 2017. The ratio of the number of calls to the NSR in Moscow for AE to the total number of calls was analyzed; the ratio of the number of calls to the ambulatory system for AE to the total number of calls to patients with allergic reactions; the ratio of patients with AE among the total number of treated patients in 3 hospitals in Moscow; the ratio of patients with AE of the upper respiratory tract (URT) among the total number of patients with AE; the ratio of patients with AE URT among the total number of patients with ENT pathology. As a result of the study, it was found that the share of AE in the structure of emergency calls of ambulance teams (=3 070 491) was 0. Read More

Hemobilia: Etiology, diagnosis, and treatment.

Liver Res 2018 Dec 22;2(4):200-208. Epub 2018 Sep 22.

Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, Sylmar, CA, USA.

Hemobilia refers to bleeding from and/or into the biliary tract and is an uncommon but important cause of gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Reports of hemobilia date back to the 1600s, but due to its relative rarity and challenges in diagnosis, only in recent decades has hemobilia been more critically studied. The majority of cases of hemobilia are iatrogenic and caused by invasive procedures involving the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and/or the hepatopancreatobiliary vasculature, with trauma and malignancy representing the two other leading causes.

Recurrent Hemobilia Due to Right Hepatic Artery Pseudoaneurysm.

Clin Med Res 2017 12 1;15(3-4):96-99. Epub 2017 Dec 1.

Assistant professor, Department of surgery named after N.D. Monastyrskiy, North-Western State Medical University named after I.I. Mechnikov, Saint-Petersburg/Russia. Email:

Hemobilia is a potentially life-threatening clinical issue, the etiology of which iatrogenesis is playing increasingly more prominent role. Nowadays the most frequent etiology of hemobilia has shifted toward iatrogenesis owing to increasingly more frequent performance of liver procedures, either open or minimally invasive. Here we report a rare case of recurrent hemobilia after transarterial embolization. Read More
