Correlation of duplex sonography with arteriography
in patients with erectile dysfunction.
Another point of interest is the ultrasound demonstrating flow acceleration in the renal arteries, with a lack of renal stenosis present on arteriography
The knowledge of the presence of multiple coronary ostia is important and while performing coronary arteriography
and angiography, a preliminary aortic root injection of the dye must be given to locate them so that the adverse outcomes of procedure can be prevented.
Use of arteriography
in massive pelvic bleedings enables vascular mapping and selective artery embolization.
Caption: Figure 2: Arteriography
of the right arm that revealed a 7 cm mass on the arteriovenous fistula.
Where duplex is unavailable outside of office hours or the pathology more extensive (cross speciality interest), we utilise computed tomography [CT] above magnetic resonance [MR], with very few (if ever) proceeding directly to diagnostic catheter arteriography
(in isolation) for vascular malperfusion.
in a review of the literature on the AUF found that the most effective modality for imaging is selective arteriography
; indeed direct extravasation of contrast through the ureteroarterial defect is documented along with subsequent opacification of the contiguous ureter.
These factors led many to advocate for emergent arteriography
in all patients suspected of having knee dislocations, despite the fact that many present with intact distal pulses and there are no "hard signs" of vascular damage.
(3,5) The majority of biliary-venous fistulas are not clinically apparent and do not require treatment, but symptomatic patients may require assessment with cholangiography or arteriography
with subsequent procedures.
(4,11,12,13,14,15,16) Patterson et al 15 concluded that arteriography
only delays the time to definitive repair and commented that: "It is important to not underestimate the value of a warm hand on a cold foot." Mills et al reviewed the use of the ABI in knee dislocations and using 0.9 as a cut off had a specificity, sensitivity, NPV and PPV of 100%.
Treatment of CVD especially coronary heart disease has attracted more and more importance.6,7 Coronary arteriography
is the gold standard for diagnosing coronary heart disease.
