Echocardiography is also recommended to assess cardiac function and to specifically assess for pulmonary arterial hypertension. If a nodule larger than 1 cm is identified on screening ultrasound, contrast-enhanced multiphasic computed tomography CT or magnetic resonance imaging MRI is performed.
Some select patients may benefit from combination treatment with either transarterial or ablative treatments to achieve curative resection.
Most liver abscesses are diagnosed and monitored with CT, MRI, or ultrasound. If venous shunting is identified, the balloon catheter should be placed distal to the shunting; if this is not technically feasible, another hepatic vein should be selected for interrogation.
Left portal vein hepatopetal flow toward the liver is therefore indicative of shunt dysfunction. D R Foster, RAD Magazine, Vol. For an extended right hepatectomy, some authors have advocated embolizing segment IV as well to obtain a greater hypertrophy rate in segments II and III, although the risk of nontarget embolization to the FLR is theoretically greater.
The first percutaneous liver aspiration was performed by German physician Paul Ehrlich in 1883, but the technique became widely accepted only after the landmark publication by Menghini in 1958.
The book is well illustrated and contains a comprehensive list of references at the end of each chapter. Interventional Oncology in the Liver Liver-directed locoregional therapies for unresectable primary and metastatic malignant neoplasms continue to evolve with advances in ablative and endovascular technologies and techniques.
the field of liver transplantation which will certainly be a valuable addition to any surgical and radiological library. Imaging guidance is becoming increasingly prevalent and has multiple advantages over palpation- or percussion-guided techniques, including a decreased complication rate and superior diagnostic yield.
Relative contraindications to PVE include extrahepatic metastases, uncorrectable coagulopathy, extensive tumor burden precluding safe access into the portal vein, and tumoral invasion into the portal vein.
The book will primarily be of value to radiology departments in major centres involved with liver transplantation.
The occlusion of a hepatic vein blocks blood flow in the distal hepatic veins and in the sinusoids; thus catheter pressure measured in this position reflects the pressure in the sinusoids, which in turn reflects portal pressure in sinusoidal or postsinusoidal portal hypertension.
