PURPOSE: To evaluate efficacy and safety of a novel device that combines an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter and central venous catheter (CVC) for prevention of pulmonary embolism (PE) in critically ill patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a multicenter, prospective, single-arm clinical trial, the device was inserted at the bedside without fluoroscopy and subsequently retrieved before transfer from the intensive care unit (ICU). The primary efficacy endpoint was freedom from clinically significant PE or fatal PE 72 hours after device removal or discharge, whichever occurred first...

PURPOSE: To assess the feasibility of percutaneous magnetic resonance (MR) imaging-guided cryoablation of small renal masses (SRMs) in a 3-T environment and to evaluate intraprocedural imaging, procedural safety, and initial outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The analysis included 9 patients (4 men; median age, 72 y; range, 70-82 y) with 9 SRMs (diameter, 12-30 mm). Lesions underwent biopsy, and cryoneedles were inserted under ultrasound guidance. Verification of needle positions and ice-ball monitoring were performed by T1-weighted volumetric interpolated breath-hold examination and T2-weighted half-Fourier acquired single-shot turbo spin-echo sequences...

PURPOSE: To evaluate clinical outcomes following percutaneous rupture of symptomatic lumbar facet synovial cysts (LFSCs) with intraarticular steroid injection. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective review, 44 consecutive patients with symptomatic LFSCs received primary treatment with CT-guided synovial cyst rupture with intraarticular steroid injection. Outcomes questionnaires were obtained before and 1, 4, 26, and 52 weeks after LFSC rupture. Assessment included pain medication use and numeric rating scale (NRS), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), and 12-item short form health survey (SF-12) physical and mental composite scores (PCS and MCS)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the success rate of CT-guided bone biopsies in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) and to investigate associated technical, imaging, and clinical parameters affecting diagnostic yields. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighty CT-guided bone biopsy specimens were obtained from 72 men (median age, 68 y; range, 49-89 y) enrolled in a multicenter trial to identify mechanisms of resistance in mCRPC. Successful biopsy was determined by histologic confirmation of tumor cells and successful isolation of RNA for molecular analysis...

MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review was done of 2,032 liver tumor embolization, radioembolization, and ablation procedures performed in 1,092 patients from June 2009 to April 2016. Pathology, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) stage (American Joint Committee on Cancer), neuroendocrine tumor (NET) grade, initial locoregional therapy, overall survival after initial locoregional therapy, Child-Pugh score, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status, Charlson Comorbidity Index, and outpatient medications taken at the time of locoregional therapy were analyzed for each patient...

PURPOSE: To compare physicochemical properties of emulsions of ethiodized oil (Lipiodol; Guerbet, Villepinte, France) and epirubicin prepared using different techniques for conventional transarterial chemoembolization. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Lipiodol was mixed with epirubicin solution (8.33 mg/mL) by using a 3-way stopcock. The following technical parameters were compared: ratio of epirubicin solution to Lipiodol (1:2 vs 1:1), number of pumping exchanges through the stopcock (20 exchanges vs 10 exchanges), pumping speed (1 s/push vs 2 s/push), and first push syringe (epirubicin solution vs Lipiodol)...

PURPOSE: To test the hypotheses that (i) heavier rats demonstrate improved survival with diminished fibrosis in a diethylnitrosamine (DEN)-induced model of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and (ii) transarterial embolization via femoral artery access decreases procedure times versus carotid access. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred thirty-eight male Wistar rats ingested 0.01% DEN in water ad libitum for 12 weeks. T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging was used for tumor surveillance...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between recanalization rate of occluded veins after deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and development of postthrombotic syndrome (PTS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients treated for DVT of the lower limbs were evaluated 12-36 months after acute DVT. Of 100 patients, 34 developed PTS, defined as Villalta score of ≥ 5. Symptoms and signs of PTS were assessed, and ultrasound examination of the veins was performed, checking for residual thrombus and presence of reflux...

PURPOSE: To determine frequency of and assess risk factors for hepatic artery (HA) injury during percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage (PTBD) and to discuss the technique and report the clinical outcome of embolization for HA injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Over a 14-year period (2002-2016), 1,304 PTBD procedures in 920 patients were recorded. The incidence of HA injury was determined, and possible associated risk factors were analyzed. When injury occurred, HA embolization was performed at the site as close to the bleeding point as possible...
