VENA CAVAL OBSTRUCTION: SOME EPIDEMIOLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS IN 76 PATIENTS
- Diagnosis of Budd-Chiari syndrome: three-dimensional dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance angiography. Wang, Li; Lu, Jian-ping; Wang, Fei; Liu, Qi; Wang, Jian // Abdominal Imaging;Aug2011, Vol. 36 Issue 4, p399
Objective: To investigate the characteristics and diagnostic value of three-dimensional contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (3D CE-MRA) in the diagnosis of Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS). Methods: One hundred thirty-three BCS patients underwent 3D CE-MRA, 64 patients had primary BCS,...
- Unusual Anomaly Complicating Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair: Anterior Inferior Vena Cava. Kleiner, Daniel E.; Harthun, Nancy L. // Vascular & Endovascular Surgery;Feb/Mar2009, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p87
This case illustrates an unusual anomaly of the great veins. To our knowledge, these are the first published photographs of the vena cava traversing anterior to the distal aorta. This anatomic variant caused minor technical problems during open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
- Variations of the bilateral testicular veins: embryological and clinical considerations. Chun-Ying Yang; Hao-Gang Xue; Kumiko Tanuma; Hitoshi Ozawa // Surgical & Radiologic Anatomy;Feb2008, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p53
Variations of the bilateral testicular veins were observed during routine dissection of the posterior abdominal wall in a 77-year-old male Japanese cadaver. The right testicular vein consisted of the lateral and medial testicular veins. The right lateral testicular vein drained into the right...
- CLINICAL ANATOMY OF LESSER VARIATIONS OF THE INFERIOR VENA CAVA; AND A PROPOSAL FOR CLASSIFYING THE ANOMALIES OF THIS VESSEL. Edwards, Edward A. // Angiology;Apr1951, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p85
Major anomalies of the inferior vena cava help to explain many of the lesser variations encountered. Examples of the common anomalies are therefore given. New terminology is introduced, based upon the topographical relationships of these vessels, rather than upon embryologic derivation. Lesser...
- Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter Using the Saphenous Vein: Importance of Two-View Radiographs to Determine the Tip Location. Coit, Alison Kirse; Kamitsuka, Michael D // Journal of Perinatology;Oct2005, Vol. 25 Issue 10, p674
Two cases are described in which a peripherally inserted central catheter tip in the saphenous vein appeared to be in the inferior vena cava by an anteroposterior abdominal radiograph, but a lateral view revealed the catheter tip to be outside the inferior vena cava. The actual location of the...
- Eck's fistula. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p719
A definition of the medical term "Eck's fistula," which refers to an artificial communication between the portal vein and the inferior vena cava, is presented.
- Thrombosis of the Inferior Vena Cava and Hepatic Veins (Budd-Chiari Syndrome). Hales, Milton R.; Scatlife, James H. // Annals of Internal Medicine;Oct66, Vol. 65 Issue 4, p768
Presents the case of a 28-year-old Afro-American who was diagnosed to be suffering from thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and hepatic veins of the Budd-Chiari Syndrome. Signs and symptoms manifested by the patient; Medical history; Results of the diagnostic procedures made on the patient.
- Letter to the editor regarding 'Situs inversus with levocardia, infrahepatic interruption of the inferior vena cava, and azygos continuation: a case report'. Loomba, Rohit; Anderson, Robert // Surgical & Radiologic Anatomy;Dec2015, Vol. 37 Issue 10, p1289
A letter to the editor is presented in response to the article "Situs inversus with levocardia, infrahepatic interruption of the inferior vena cava, and azygos continuation: a case repo" by A. Del Prete and colleagues in previous issue.
- Balloon Septostomy for Membranous Obstruction of the Vena Cava in Budd-Chiari Syndrome. Indeck, Matthew; Puyau, Frank; Kerstein, Morris D. // Vascular Surgery;Nov/Dec1984, Vol. 18 Issue 6, p399
The Budd-Chiari Syndrome secondary to a membranous web in the inferior vena cava was successfully treated in a 38-year-old man by Gruntzig--triple balloon dilatation. Follow-up at one year showed near absent ascites.
