  • Diagnosis of cardiac metastasis from cervical cancer in a 33-year-old
           patient using multimodal imaging studies: a case report and literature

    • Authors: Schawkat, K; Hoksch, B, Schwerzmann, M, Puig, S, Klink, T.
      Pages: 2047981614 - 2047981614
      Abstract: We report a case of a 33-year-old woman with emergency admission due to dyspnoea and fever. History included squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix in complete remission. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scanning of the chest, which was indicated to rule out pneumonia, revealed an infiltrative cardiac mass. Further assessment of the tumour by echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed transmural infiltration of the apical interventricular septum with a mass extending into the left and right ventricle cavities. The mass was highly suspicious for a cardiac metastasis. Cardiac metastases from cervical cancer are extremely rare. Recurrence of cervical carcinoma involving the heart should be considered even after a curative therapy approach. Non-invasive imaging plays a paramount role in investigating cardiac masses. Echocardiography, CT and MRI are complementary imaging modalities for complete work-up of intracardiac lesions.

  • Isolated sphenoid fungal sinusitis and coexisting intrasellar mass lesion
           presenting with headache as the sole symptom

    • Authors: Kalaycı, C. B; Cevik, H.
      Pages: 2047981614 - 2047981614
      Abstract: A case of isolated sphenoid fungal sinusitis in an elderly diabetic patient is described. A coexisting mass lesion located in the sellar region was detected incidentally. Coincidence of these two entities represents a potential surgical disaster which may result in direct intracranial spread of fungal infection.

  • Successful treatment of acquired uterine arterial venous malformation
           using N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate under balloon occlusion

    • Authors: Woodhams, R; Ogasawara, G, Ishida, K, Fujii, K, Yamane, T, Nishimaki, H, Matsunaga, K, Inoue, Y.
      Pages: 2047981614 - 2047981614
      Abstract: We present two cases of acquired uterine arterial venous malformation (AVM) which was diagnosed because of massive genital bleeding successfully treated with transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE), using N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) under balloon occlusion. Balloon occlusion at the uterine artery was performed in both patients for diffuse distribution of NBCA in multiple feeding branches, as well as to the pseudoaneurysm, and for the prevention of NBCA reflux. In one of our patients, balloon occlusion of the draining vein was simultaneously performed to prevent NBCA migration through accompanying high-flow arteriovenous fistula (AVF). Doppler ultrasound at 6 months of both patients documented persistent complete occlusion of AVM. Complete and safe obliteration of acquired uterine AVM was accomplished using NBCA as embolic agent, under balloon occlusion at the communicating vessels of acquired uterine AVM.
