Introduction: An Amplatzer Vascular Plug (AVP), which was designed as a permanent occluding device derived from the Amplatzer Septal Occluder and Amplatzer Duct Occluder, is a useful embolic device that can be precisely deployed in medium to large vessels with high resistance to migration. However, migration of these Amplatzer devices has been reported as a relatively rare but major complication. Case report: A 59-year-old woman was referred for the treatment of advanced pancreatic body cancer; after systemic chemotherapy, distal pancreatectomy with en bloc celiac axis resection (DP-CAR) was planned as curative treatment...

Purpose: Complex intracranial aneurysms (CIA) are heterogenous group of intracranial vascular malformations. Due to its giant size, difficult location, broad neck, branches arising from the aneurysm, wall structure, calcification, presence of intraluminal thrombus or previous treatments it requires more careful approach. The aim of this study was to evaluate endovascular treatment results of CIA in our Department. Material and methods: In order to differentiate CIA from all the aneurysms, treated endovascularly in years 2008-2014, authors proposed their own qualification criteria...

Purpose: Mammography is the most commonly used diagnostic test for breast lesion detection and evaluation, but in dense breast parenchyma it lowers its sensitivity to detect small lesions. Sensitivity and specificity improves with combined use of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CE-MRI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in differentiating benign and malignant breast lesions. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectivity of combined dynamic CE-MRI and DWI in differentiating benign and malignant lesions, and to calculate the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of malignant and benign lesions of the breast...

Leukoaraiosis is a pathological appearance of the brain white matter, which has long been believed to be caused by perfusion disturbances within the arterioles perforating through the deep brain structures. Due to its complex etiopathogenesis and clinical relevance, leukoaroisosis has been investigated in a multitude of studies. As regards the clinical implications of leukoaraiosis, this neuroimaging finding is strongly related to ischaemic stroke, unfavourable course of ischaemic stroke in the acute phase, worse long-term outcomes, and cognitive disturbances...

Purpose: Disseminated malignancies are a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge that is often encountered in radiology. Finding the primary tumour is crucial for planning proper surgical and oncological treatment. Computed tomography (CT) of the thorax and abdomen is typically the initial examination. However, abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET/CT) or PET/MRI are often subsequently performed. Histopathological examination of metastatic tumours is performed as well, followed by immunohistochemistry...

Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare sporadic non-Langerhans cell histiocytic (LCH) proliferative disorder with systemic predilection. It usually affects adults in the 5th -7th decades of life and has non-specific clinical manifestations. Its suspicion is often heralded by the presence of characteristic radiological findings and subsequently confirmed by demonstration of CD68-positive xanthogranulomatous infiltrates on histopathology. Despite being a non-malignant entity, it might be fatal due to organ dysfunction...
