A wandering spleen presenting as a pelvic mass: Case report and review of the literature
Wandering spleens are rare clinical entities found more commonly in females. We report a young female patient found to harbour a pelvic spleen. The literature regarding this rare ectopia is reviewed. The wandering spleen ...
Associations of Endothelin Polymorphisms and Aneurysm Size at Time of Rupture.
Aneurysm size is an important risk factor for aneurysm rupture. The pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying aneurysm growth remain poorly understood. Endothelin signaling is critical for cerebrovascular blood flow regulation. ...
Association of Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor 1 (SERPINE1) Polymorphisms and Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.
Genetic variations of the serine proteinase inhibitor family E member 1 (SERPINE1) gene, which encodes plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, correlate with serum levels of its product and are associated with thrombophilia and ...
Crimean - Congo haemorrhagic fever presenting as thrombotic microangiopathy and acute renal failure
[No abstract available]
Parvovirus B19 microepidemic in renal transplant recipients with thrombotic microangiopathy and allograft vasculitis.
Parvovirus B-19 (B-19) can lead to various clinical scenarios in renal transplant recipients. Here, we report a B-19 microepidemic that occurred between January and March 2007, involving renal transplant recipients from a ...
Do mechanical fluid laws dictate the branching pattern of the renal artery?
Anatomy of the renal artery is an important issue in the renal transplantation era. Multi-detector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) is an accurate modality for the preoperative assessment of live renal donors, and ...
Combined aneurysms of the main renal and celiac arteries: an unusual association.
Celiac artery aneurysm (CAA) is a rare condition, which occasionally occurs in association with such visceral aneurysms as splenic, common hepatic, left hepatic, superior mesenteric and renal arteries. We describe our ...
Origins of the gonadal artery: embryologic implications.
The gonadal arteries are paired vessels that usually originate from the abdominal aorta at the level of second lumbar vertebra. In 5-20% of cases, the gonadal artery has a high origin (superior to L2) and in 5-6% of cases ...
Neurological manifestations, imaging characteristics, and surgical outcome of intraspinal osteochondroma.
Spinal osteochondromas (OCs) are rare and can originate as solitary lesions or in the context of hereditary multiple exostoses. Concurrent spinal cord compression is a very rare entity. The purpose of this study was to ...
