Laryngomalacia is the most common congenital anomaly of the larynx and usually involves prolapse of the arytenoids, so-called 'posterior laryngomalacia'. Most cases resolve with growth of the child and maturation of the larynx, although, rarely, significant airway obstruction can be present. Severe laryngomalacia preventing intubation is rarely encountered. We report ...

The most common clinical presentations of dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) are bruit, headache, increased intracranial pressure, and intracranial hemorrhage. In particular locations, such as the cavernous sinus or middle cranial fossa, cranial nerve involvement due to dural arterial steal or venous occlusion may develop. A case in which a DAVF ...

Liver cryosurgery is one of the treatment options for unresectable liver metastases. Indications for the use of this treatment instead of classic surgery are bilobar disease, location of the tumor at an irresectable anatomic site, and comorbid conditions of the patient. Possible complications of cryosurgery are hemorrhage, coagulopathy, pneumonia, pleural ...

Arteriovenous fistulae involving the internal thoracic vessels are extremely rare. The multiple causes, variable clinical presentation, and inconsistent delay of onset of clinical symptoms in addition to their rarity make their diagnosis difficult. However, the complications of untreated internal thoracic fistulae are potentially fatal, emphasizing the need to make a ...

Intraosseous dural arteriovenous malformation (DAVM) is rare. The intraosseous component of this DAVM has usually been neglected on conventional angiography and found during operation after the bone drilling has been completed. Considerable bleeding usually occurs during operation because of the unexpected hypervascular bone marrow. We report the use of MRI ...

We report the color Doppler sonographic features in a case of hemangiopericytoma of the thigh in a 52-year-old woman. Color Doppler sonography demonstrated the vascularity of the tumor, and spectral analysis showed waveform changes that suggested the presence of intratumoral arteriovenous shunting. The color Doppler findings correlated well with angiographic ...

Congenital bronchoesophageal fistula is a rare anomaly that may go undiagnosed for many years. There are <200 reported cases in the literature. Patients usually present with chronic cough, a history of multiple pneumonias, and, less often, hemoptysis. The most sensitive test to diagnose a bronchoesophageal fistula is barium esophagogram. Surgical ...

Chylous fistula after neck dissection is a relatively rare but potentially lethal complication. Sequelae range from severe fluid, electrolyte, and protein loss to fistula formation, skin-flap necrosis, and carotid blowout. A thorough knowledge of the anatomy is essential to avoid injury to the thoracic duct or right lymph duct. After ...

Large intraosseous arteriovenous malformations (AVM) of the maxilla are rare lesions, which are probably hamartomas. We report a case of an 8-year-old child who presented with exsanguinating hemorrhage after an attempted dental biopsy. The management of dental intraosseous AVMs includes transarterial embolization and direct intralesional injection of liquid acrylic (NBCA). ...
