  • Balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration of gastric varix with
           multiple drainage veins performed with temporal occlusion of the
           pericardiacophrenic vein with a micro-balloon

      Abstract: We encountered a case with a gastric varix that drained into the gastro-renal shunt, left pericardiacophrenic vein, and several other dilated collateral veins. This patient had a circumaortic venous ring. For this case we successfully performed balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration in which sclerotic agents were infused from the balloon catheter advanced to the left pre-aortic renal vein and the tip was wedged into the end of the gastro-renal shunt. Before injection of sclerotic agents, collateral veins other than the left pericardiacophrenic vein were embolized with micro-coils. During the injection, the left pericardiacophrenic vein was occluded temporarily with a micro-balloon catheter coaxially advanced from the catheter inserted from the femoral vein to the left pericardiacophrenic vein through the left brachiocephalic vein.

  • Venous extravasation and polymethylmethacrylate pulmonary embolism
           following fluoroscopy-guided percutaneous vertebroplasty

    • Authors: Makary, M. S; Zucker, I. L, Sturgeon, J. M.

      Abstract: Percutaneous vertebroplasty has gained widespread popularity and demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of spinal osteoporotic compression fractures and pathologic osteolytic lesions. Despite its rapid pain relief and safety, this minimally invasive intervention has exhibited some rare complications over the past decade. In this case study, we describe a patient with an uncommon complication of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement pulmonary embolism following fluoroscopy-guided percutaneous vertebroplasty for treatment of pain associated with an osteoporotic vertebral fracture. We present this case to highlight that vertebroplasty is not risk-free and that knowledge of such potentially severe complication is necessary for prevention and optimal operative outcomes.

  • Benign metastasizing pleomorphic adenoma in liver mimicking synchronic
           metastatic disease from colorectal cancer: a case report with emphasis on
           imaging findings

    • Authors: Young, V. S; Viktil, E, Loberg, E. M, Enden, T.

      Abstract: Pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland with metastases to the liver is a rare etiology of focal liver lesions, and there are no described pathognomonic imaging features. We report a patient who presented with a newly diagnosed rectal cancer and multiple cystic liver lesions suspicious of mucinous synchronous liver metastases. Following chemotherapy no reduction in the number or size of the liver lesions was observed. The patient was re-evaluated and a biopsy of a lesion was performed. The specimen showed a metastasis from a pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland for which the patient had been treated 20 years earlier. The case illustrates how a thorough medical history can be crucial when a standard diagnostic imaging workup for colorectal cancer metastases is uncertain, and how a biopsy, though regarded as contraindicated due to the risk of tumor cell dissemination, can be required to secure a correct diagnosis.
