    Introduction The technique of selective embolization has been applied for years in the treatment of vascular anomalies, severe hemorrhage, and for benign and malignant tumors. Some hypervascular skeletal metastases are prone to massive hemorrhage. Case presentation We describe the cases of two...

    Persisting chronic edema following postoperative free flap transfer is a common complication. We report 3 cases of successful treatment by selective arterial embolization of the feeding arterial branches without side effect. One session embolization is advocated as a first line treatment of this...

    Hepatic artery aneurysm is a rare vascular lesion that accounts for nearly 10% of hemobilia cases. Its etiology is most often atherosclerosis, trauma, or infection. Autoaggressive disorders are rarely associated with hepatic artery aneurysm as is thyroid dysfunction. Presented here is a case of...

    Retrosternal goitre is usually referred to as enlarged thyroid gland with greater than 50% of its mass below the thoracic inlet. It has a clinical importance because its compressive symptoms may cause diagnostic problems and the selection of surgical approach is sometimes difficult. This report...
