Adrenal Vein Sampling

University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics (Feb 2015)

Adrenal Vein Sampling: A Critical Tool for Subtyping Primary Aldosteronism

Definitions, patient selection and preparation, technique, controversies, assessment of successful catheterization, interpretation of results and assessment of successful lateralization

Adrenal Vein Sampling: How to Make It Quick, Easy, and Successful

Adrenal vein sampling has a reputation as a difficult procedure. However, it is being performed more frequently at some institutions due to the realization that primary aldosteronism is more common than previously believed. At the author’s institution, adrenal vein sampling with computed tomographic (CT) and laboratory correlation has been performed more than 800 times in the past 10 years.

Arterial Revascularization

Seminars in Interventional Radiology (Dec 2014)

Overview of Classification Systems in Peripheral Artery Disease

A review of the various classification systems for the diagnosis and treatment of PAD and advantages of each system.

Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration

American Journal of Roentgenology (Oct 2012)

Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration of Gastric Varices

The purpose of this review is to describe the clinical factors related to balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration, including the preparation needed, the technique and challenges, and the outcomes.

Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration

Seminars in Interventional Radiology (Feb 2012)

Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration of Gastric Varices: Concept, Basic Techniques, and Outcomes

This article discusses the concept, technique, and outcomes of BRTO within the broader management of gastric varices.

Balloon-Occluded Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration

Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology (Aug 2018)

Coil-Assisted Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration (CARTO) for the Treatment of Portal Hypertensive Variceal Bleeding: Preliminary Results

CARTO appears to be a technically feasible and safe alternative to traditional balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt, with excellent clinical outcomes in treating portal hypertensive non-esophageal variceal bleeding.

Biliary Stent Placement

Seminars in Interventional Radiology (Apr 2016)

Biliary Interventions Tools and Techniques of the Trade, Access, Cholangiography, Biopsy, Cholangioscopy, Cholangioplasty, Stenting, Stone Extraction and Brachytherapy

We describe an overview of the instrumentation and technical approaches for several fundamental biliary interventional procedures, including percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography and internal/external biliary drainage, endobiliary biopsy techniques, cholangioscopy, cholangioplasty and biliary stenting, biliary stone extraction, and intraluminal brachytherapy.

Bone Marrow Biopsy

American Journal of Roentgenology (Nov 2013)

CT-Guided Bone Biopsy With a Battery-Powered Drill System: Preliminary Results

Standard percutaneous bone biopsy involves manual needle insertion. Recently, a battery-powered needle drilling biopsy system (OnControl) has been introduced. We report our experience using this drill biopsy system for CT-guided percutaneous bone biopsy in 25 patients.

Bronchial Artery Embolization

Seminars in Interventional Radiology (Mar 2004)

Bronchial Artery Embolization

Patients with chronic inflammatory lung diseases may experience massive hemoptysis. Surgical intervention is hazardous and often impossible in these patients, however endovascular management of hemoptysis with bronchial artery embolization is effective and well tolerated by these patients.

Bronchial Artery Embolization

Seminars in Interventional Radiology (Mar 2011)

Bronchial Artery Embolization for Hemoptysis

The aim of this article is to summarize the etiologies, pathophysiology, and the diagnostic and management strategies of hemoptysis as related to bronchial artery embolization. In addition, the techniques of arteriography and embolization as well as associated procedural outcomes and complications are delineated.

Bronchial Artery Embolization

Seminars in Interventional Radiology (Sep 2008)

Bronchial Artery Embolization for Hemoptysis

Relevant anatomy and pathophysiology, pre-procedure evaluation with radiographic imaging, and endovascular technique for bronchial artery embolization is reviewed.

Celiac Plexus Block

CT-Guided Celiac Plexus Neurolysis for Intractable Pain of Unresectable Pancreatic Cancer

This study explores the value of CT-guided celiac plexus neurolysis (CPN) using the anterior median approach and single puncture technique with ethanol injection as palliative treatment for alleviating intractable pain in patients with unresectable pancreatic cancer.
