BACKGROUND: Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) allows intraluminal imaging of blood vessels rather than the one-dimensional luminal outline depicted by digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Despite extensive literature in multiple adult vascular diseases, IVUS has not been directly compared to DSA in pediatric and adolescent vascular pathologies. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this manuscript is to compare absolute luminal diameter measurements obtained via IVUS and DSA during a variety of pediatric endovascular procedures...

Modern, minimally invasive techniques used to treat deep venous thrombosis, such as percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) and catheter-directed thrombolysis, have gained worldwide acceptance. PMT has the advantage of speed and is also associated with improved outcomes, shortened hospital stays, and low complication rates. The main complications associated with PMT have been primarily due to iatrogenic vascular damage resulting in perforation, embolic occlusion, and arteriovenous fistula formation; to date, there has been no publication in the literature describing complications resulting from device failure...

Since progranulin (PGRN) is a natural ligand of TNF receptors, we assessed whether serum PGRN levels predict and/or reflect responsiveness of RA patients to TNF-antagonist therapy. TNF-antagonist-naïve RA patients (N = 35) were started on TNF-antagonist therapy. At baseline and at follow-up visits, DAS28-ESR, DAS28-CRP, and CDAI were calculated, and venous blood was collected for serum PGRN determination. Disease activity and clinical response were based on EULAR criteria. Baseline serum PGRN levels varied considerably and correlated with ESR and CRP...

PURPOSE: To report a single-center experience in regard to the technique, safety, and clinical outcomes of endovascular therapy for treatment of May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) in adolescent patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review identified 10 patients (6 female; mean age, 16 y; range, 12-18 y; mean weight, 73 kg; range, 50-116 kg) treated by endovascular therapy for MTS from 1998 to 2015. Clinical presentations consisted of acute thrombotic MTS (n = 6) and nonthrombotic MTS (n = 4)...

Abdominal vascular syndromes are rare diseases. Although such syndromes vary widely in terms of symptoms and etiologies, certain imaging findings are characteristic. Depending on their etiology, they can be categorized as congenital-including blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome, Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome)-or compressive-including "nutcracker" syndrome, median arcuate ligament syndrome, Cockett syndrome (also known as May-Thurner syndrome), and superior mesenteric artery syndrome...

AIM: There is firm evidence of a relation between type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and increased risks of cancer at various sites, but it is still unclear how different antihyperglycaemic therapies modify site-specific cancer risks. The aim of this study was to provide a complete characterization of all possible associations between individual T2DM therapies, statin use and site-specific cancers in the Austrian population. METHODS: Medical claims data of 1 847 051 patients with hospital stays during 2006-2007 were used to estimate age- and sex-dependent co-occurrences of site-specific cancer diagnoses and treatment with specific glucose-lowering drugs and statins...

Spontaneous iliac vein rupture resulting in a retroperitoneal hematoma is extremely rare and can present as a life-threatening emergency. There is often a delay in diagnosis with no established treatment recommendations. We report the case of a 39-year-old woman who presented with hypovolemic shock, a large left retroperitoneal hematoma, and left lower extremity phlegmasia in the setting of a previously asymptomatic May-Thurner syndrome. She was successfully treated with a combined open and endovascular approach...

May-Thurner syndrome is the condition of the left common iliac vein being compressed between the right common iliac artery and the associated vertebral body. This condition has been linked to spontaneous episodes of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), especially in women aged 20-50, and it may contribute to the slightly higher tendency to develop left-sided (~56%) versus right-sided DVTs. A 50-year-old morbidly obese (BMI 42.7 kg/m(2)) female presented to the emergency room with acute left leg pain. Past medical history included asthma...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVE: To explore the underlying anatomy of MTS using CT and discuss its clinical significance for typing diagnosis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Because the anatomical position of the corpse cannot fully illustrate the actual clinical situation in vivo, the diversity of MTS has not been fully elucidated yet. METHODS: Retrospectively analysed the data of 69 patients with MTS. By CT showing, patients were categorized to simple MTS (sMTS, 22), lumbar degeneration-related MTS (dMTS, 33) and other causes MTS (oMTS, 14); meanwhile, a healthy control group were set...

The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) in patients with cryptogenic stroke and to determine the incidence of patent foramen ovale. Magnetic resonance venography of 214 patients with cryptogenic stroke and 50 control patients with abdominopelvic computed tomography scans were evaluated for MTS. Incidence of patent foramen ovale and MTS in the stroke group were significantly greater than the control group (P = 0.0001, P = 0.0023, respectively). In addition, there was significantly greater compression of the left common iliac vein in the stroke group (32%) compared with the control group (13%) (P < 0...

Descending iliofemoral thrombosis in children is a rare event. Anticoagulation therapy with low-molecular-weight-heparin is standard of care. However, patency cannot be achieved in all cases, increasing the risk for rethrombosis and postthrombotic syndrome. To reduce the risk of venous valve failure in adults, local catheter-directed thrombolysis is used to reopen vessels. Two adolescent girls (17 and 15 years old) presented with acute descending iliofemoral thrombosis of the left common iliac, external, and common femoral veins...

REVIEW

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is a venous compression syndrome in which the left common iliac vein is compressed between the lower lumbar spine and the right common iliac artery. While asymptomatic compression is very common, the process can lead to morbidity in selected individuals, most commonly deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and the sequelae thereof. Radiologists must recognize the diagnosis because of the unique management, which differs from DVT without iliac vein compression. The current pictorial essay will review the pathophysiology, imaging, and treatment of MTS...

OBJECTIVES: Autoantibodies may play a role in the pathogenesis of primary vasculitides (PVs) like giant cell arteritis (GCA). We recently identified 3 cytoskeletal proteins (lamin C [laC], nuclear autoantigen of 14kD [NA14] and cytokeratin 15 [CK15]) as autoantigens in GCA and postulated a frequent autoantibody response against these antigens in PVs. METHODS: To test this hypothesis we studied a cohort of patients with PVs (n=61) and healthy individuals (n=27) for the presence of these autoantibodies using a recombinant cDNA expression library...

Proteasome-catalyzed peptide splicing represents an additional catalytic activity of proteasomes contributing to the pool of MHC-class I-presented epitopes. We here biochemically and functionally characterized a new melanoma gp100 derived spliced epitope. We demonstrate that the gp100(mel)47-52/40-42 antigenic peptide is generated in vitro and in cellulo by a not yet described proteasomal condensation reaction. gp100(mel)47-52/40-42 generation is enhanced in the presence of the β5i/LMP7 proteasome-subunit and elicits a peptide-specific CD8(+) T cell response...
