    We report a severely traumatized patient who developed massive bleeding through surgical drains in the postoperative period. Superselective dorsal pancreatic arteriography demonstrated extravasation of contrast material in the pancreatic bed. Embolization with Gel-foam particles successfully...

    Background: Lower gastrointestinal bleeding represents 20 % of all gastrointestinal bleedings. Interventional radiology has transformed the treatment of this pathology, but the long-term outcome after selective embolization has been poorly evaluated. The aim of this study is thus to evaluate the...

    The purpose of this study was to determine non-invasively the frequency of ectopic bronchial arteries (BA) (i.e., bronchial arteries originating at a level of the descending aorta other than T5-T6 or from any aortic collateral vessel) on multidetector-row CT angiograms (CTA) obtained in patients...

    We present a patient with continuous melena, diagnosed as rectal varices bleeding. She had a history of esopbageal varices, which was treated by endoscopic ligation therapy. Eight years after the treatment of esophageal varices, the continuous melena began. Colonoscopic examination showed that...

    In acute nonvariceal gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, immediate arteriographic haemostasis is presently assumed to be a therapeutic advantage. This study assesses whether the risk of a delayed haemostasis, caused by arteriographic findings precluding embolization, might influence patient outcome....

    Two patients presented with recurrent, massive haemoptysis. Arteriography, including thoracoabdominal aortograms, revealed in both cases large non-bronchial collaterals arising from the left gastric artery. In the first case the nonbronchial collateral supplied the upper left lobe and in the...

    Introduction: Hemoptysis is a common condition that is seen in cases of pulmonary disease. Arterial embolization is the preferred treatment for this disease entity. In cases of hemoptysis, the bronchial arteries from the systemic circulation are the primary cause of bleeding. There are also...
