PURPOSE: To prospectively evaluate the safety and efficacy of using the Tigris vascular stent (Gore, Flagstaff, Arizona) alone or in combination with the Viabahn stent (Gore) for revascularizing femoropopliteal Trans-Atlantic Intersociety Consensus (TASC) type B-D lesions with varying degrees of calcification. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with Rutherford stage ≥ 3 and TASC type ≥ B were included in the study. From January 2015 to April 2017, 31 segments in 31 patients (21 men, ovarall mean age 73...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the performance of automated feeder detection (AFD) software (EmboGuide; Philips Healthcare, Best, The Netherlands) on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumors during transarterial chemoembolization. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Forty-four first-time transarterial chemoembolization patients (37 men; mean age, 62 ± 11 years) were enrolled between May 2012 and July 2013. A total of 86 HCC lesions were treated (2.0 ± 1.4 lesions per patient; 27.6 ± 15...

PURPOSE: To retrospectively evaluate therapeutic performance and complications of superselective transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) for unruptured renal angiomyolipoma (AML) in patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) and to investigate the correlation between percentage reduction in tumor volume and intratumoral fat content. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Superselective TAE was performed in 14 consecutive patients with 15 large unruptured renal AMLs associated with LAM (mean age, 38 y; range, 21-57 y)...

PURPOSE: To determine whether treating benign biliary strictures via a stricture protocol reduced the probability of developing symptomatic recurrence and requiring surgical revision compared to nonprotocol treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A stricture protocol was designed to include serial upsizing of internal/external biliary drainage catheters to a target maximum dilation of 18-French, optional cholangioplasty at each upsizing, and maintenance of the largest catheter for at least 6 months...

PURPOSE: To examine the safety and outcomes for patients undergoing transradial noncoronary interventions with international normalized ratio (INR) ≥1.5. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of 2,271 transradial access (TRA) cases performed from July 2012 to July 2016 was conducted. Criteria for inclusion were moderate bleeding risk cases with preprocedure INR ≥1.5. Within the study period, there were 176 moderate bleeding risk procedures (transarterial chemoembolization: 70/176 [39...

PURPOSE: To inductively characterize perceptions of quality in interventional oncology (IO) based on values and experiences of patients and referring providers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Brief ethnographic interviews were completed with referring providers and patients before and after a variety of liver-directed procedures about their experiences, concerns, and perceptions of IO services at a single institution. Constructivist grounded theory was used to systematically analyze interview transcripts for themes until thematic saturation was achieved...

PURPOSE: To establish a rate of nonintervention in patients referred for hemodialysis access fistulography and to report clinical and fistulographic variables associated with nonintervention. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Encounters for fistulography were reviewed from 2001 to 2016 to determine annual rates of nontreatment over 15 years. Next, an access database was used to retrospectively identify patients undergoing fistulography from 2010 to 2016. Patients who underwent fistulography without intervention (angioplasty or stent placement) served as the nontreatment group (NTG; n = 76)...

PURPOSE: To test the hypothesis that, given the current resection eligibility criteria for colorectal liver metastasis (CLM), prior hepatectomy would be associated with improved local tumor control and survival after percutaneous ablation of CLMs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This single-institution retrospective study included 82 consecutive patients with 97 CLMs treated with ablation (radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, or cryoablation) from January 2005 to December 2014...

PURPOSE: To investigate the midterm safety and efficacy of computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous gallbladder cryoablation in swine. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three swine underwent gallbladder cryoablation. Cryoprobes were positioned percutaneously at the gallbladder margins or within the gallbladder lumen under CT guidance.

PURPOSE: To address the feasibility of infusion of yttrium-90 (90Y) glass microspheres directly through the right inferior phrenic artery (RIPA). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From November 2015 to May 2017, 20 patients underwent 90Y radioembolization through the RIPA. When the systemic-to-pulmonary shunt was demonstrated on C-arm computed tomography (CT) of the RIPA, prophylactic embolization by polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) particles was performed prior to infusion of 90Y glass microspheres...

PURPOSE: To compare effect of free-text versus structured reporting of IR procedures on report quality and report coding and value. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, 432 common consecutive free-text IR reports created during 4 months (from September 2013 to December 2013) before implementation of structured reporting (February 2014) and 415 structured IR reports created after implementation (from September 2014 to December 2014) were reviewed to assess ease of use and compliance with reporting requirements for regulatory requirements and coding...

PURPOSE: To determine whether utilization and outcomes of dialysis access maintenance interventions vary by patient race or sex. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data for this retrospective cohort study of first-time arteriovenous (AV) access recipients were drawn from a 5% sample of Medicare beneficiaries, containing claims from all clinical settings (2009-2014) in 2,693 patients who received their first AV fistula/graft in 2009. Maintenance interventions-angiography, angioplasty, thrombolysis, stent placement, and venous embolization-were identified by corresponding Current Procedural Terminology codes...

PURPOSE: To quantify and compare portosystemic pressure gradients (PSGs) between bleeding esophageal varices (EV) and gastric varices (GV). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a single-center, retrospective study, 149 patients with variceal bleeding (90 men, 59 women, mean age 52 y) with EV (n = 69; 46%) or GV (n = 80; 54%) were selected from 320 consecutive patients who underwent successful transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation from 1998 to 2016...

PURPOSE: To evaluate technical success and the incidences of, and risk factors for, mechanical and infectious complications of venous port placement in infants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective single-institution cohort study of port placement in infants (age < 1 y) from January 2006 through June 2016 (mean age, 7.5 mo ± 3.3; mean weight, 8.1 kg ± 1.9). Age, weight, sex, side of placement, tip position, and indication for placement (chemotherapy vs other) were recorded...

PURPOSE: To evaluate outcome of prostatic artery chemoembolization for patients with prostate cancer (PCa). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This single-center prospective cohort study was conducted between August 2013 and July 2016 in 20 patients with PCa who underwent chemoembolization. Mean patient age was 67.5 years ± 6.4. Gleason score was 6-10, and staging was T2N0M0. Fifteen patients refused prostatectomy and 5 wanted to stop hormonal therapy because of side effects...
