Lymphocytic hypophysitis is a rarely recognized disease that is characterized by inflammatory infiltration and destruction of the pituitary gland. The etiology of lymphocytic hypophysitis is still unclear, but an autoimmune pathogenesis has been advocated. In fact, histopathologic specimens reveal a diffuse infiltration of the hypophysis by CD3(+)CD4(+) T cells and ...

In the presence of associated subarachnoid hemorrhage, the treatment of arterial dissection can be classified as either deconstructive (involving occlusion or sacrifice of the parent vessel) or reconstructive (preserving blood-flow through the parent vessel). In both treatment strategies, the main goal is to prevent any further risk of rebleeding. However, ...

In this work, we present modeling and visualization techniques for virtual stenting of aneurysms and stenoses. In particular, contributions to support the computer-aided treatment of artery diseases - artery enlargement (aneurysm) and artery contraction (stenosis) - are made. If an intervention takes place, there are two different treatment alternatives for ...

Pial arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) are high-flow vascular lesions with abnormal communications between the arterial and venous system. AVMs are congenital lesions, whereas DAVFs are considered acquired lesions. Both can cause significant morbidity and mortality if they rupture and result in intracranial hemorrhage. The primary goal ...

Lipid apheresis effectively lowers LDL-cholesterol even in drug-unresponsive severely hypercholesterolemic patients. This results in improvement of symptoms of coronary artery disease, reduces progression of coronary atherosclerosis, and decreases coronary event rates. Besides aggressive lipid lowering itself, these effects may also be due to nonselective removal of other high molecular weight ...

Critical limb ischemia, the most severe form of peripheral arterial disease, results in extremity amputation if left untreated. Endovascular recanalization of stenotic or occluded infrapopliteal arteries has recently emerged as an effective form of therapy, although the duration of patency is typically limited by restenosis. Recently, it has been suggested ...

Traditional radiotherapy is only effective in treating hepatocellular cancer (HCC) in doses above 50Gy, but this is above the recommended liver radiation exposure of about 35Gy, which is an important limitation making this treatment unsuitable for routine clinical practice. Trans-arterial radio-embolisation (TARE), consists of delivery of compounds linked to radio-emitter ...
