The lesions of the soft tissues are rare and extremely heterogeneous; even if the surgical treatment is usually the standard therapy, the role of the interventional radiology (IR) in this field is growing up for multiple reasons. First, because the imaging alone usually is not able to ensure a definitive diagnosis, IR has a basic role in the staging: the percutaneous biopsy is infact an irreplaceable step. Moreover, biopsy is necessary not only for histologic evaluations but also for the biochemical and molecular studies...

Angiomyolipomas (AML) are benign tumors of the kidneys frequently encountered in radiologic practice in large tertiary centers. In comparison to renal cell carcinomas (RCC), AML are seldom treated unless they are large, undergo malignant transformation or develop complications like acute hemorrhage. The common garden triphasic (classic) AML is an easy diagnosis, however, some variants lack macroscopic fat in which case the radiologic differentiation from RCC becomes challenging. Several imaging features, both qualitative and quantitative, have been described in differentiating the 2 entities...

Anorectal variceal bleeding is a rare occurrence; however, in such event, it could be fatal due to large size and high blood flow rate of varices. However, to date, there is no standardized treatment modality. Although endoscopic treatment can be provided, in cases of recurrent anorectal variceal bleeding, other therapeutic modalities for hemostasis are necessary. Here, we present a case of 58-year-old female patient with liver cirrhosis, who suffered from massive bleeding of anorectal varices. Endoscopic variceal band ligation was performed for primary hemostasis...

Spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is an extremely rare and disastrous musculoskeletal complication of spondylodiscitis and sacroilitis secondary to brucellosis infection. Few case reports and retrospective studies have been published reporting patients with epidural abscesses mainly lumbar, and thoracic while cervical abscess are rare. Management of spinal epidural abscess due to Brucella species is not standard and remains controversial. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case of brucellar cervical epidural abscess reported in Saudi Arabia...

Intracranial endovascular interventions provide effective and minimally invasive treatment of a broad spectrum of diseases. This area of expertise has continued to gain both wider application and greater depth as new and better techniques are developed and as landmark clinical studies are performed to guide their use. Some of the greatest advances since the last American Heart Association scientific statement on this topic have been made in the treatment of ischemic stroke from large intracranial vessel occlusion, with more effective devices and large randomized clinical trials showing striking therapeutic benefit...

The modern application of interventional radiology techniques is revolutionizing the treatment of the vascular malformations of the head and neck. In fact, the morbidity related with the surgical extirpation of the malformation might be drastically reduced with the use of an endovascular approach. The present report describes the case of a 11 years old male affected by a large intraosseous arteriovenous malformation of the mandible. The coil embolization of the main drainage vein caused the spontaneous regression of the lesion and avoided a mutilating surgery and severe psychological sequels...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a potentially fatal disease with a broad range of treatment options that spans multiple specialties. The rapid evolution and expansion of novel therapies to treat PE make it a disease process that is well suited to a multidisciplinary approach. In order to facilitate a rapid, robust response to the diagnosis of PE, some hospitals have established multidisciplinary pulmonary embolism response teams (PERTs). The PERT model is based on existing multidisciplinary teams such as heart teams and rapid response teams...
