We report a case of a 63-year-old man with a complicated postsurgical bronchopleural fistula (BPF), which was treated with a minimally-invasive hybrid procedure using fluoroscopy, bronchoscopy, and thoracoscopy. A previous surgical attempt had failed to seal the pathologic tract. An Amplazter II vascular plug was successfully deployed into the BPF, followed by autologous blood and glue injection. An adjunctive endoscopically-guided glue embolization was deemed necessary. The 14-month clinical ... [Abstract] [Full-text]

Cystographic images of Youssef syndrome: flower on top of the bladder. Urology, 79(5): e69-70.
Vesicouterine fistula after obstructed labor is very rare. Hysterosalpingography is the investigation of choice. Cystography primarily does not demonstrate the fistula because the intrauterine pressures are higher than the vesical pressure. A 38-year-old woman presented to us with vecisovaginal fistula and vesicouterine fistula that had developed 13 years earlier after obstructed labor and vaginal delivery of a stillborn neonate. She was found to have normal renal function, but she had ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
Caliceal-cutaneous fistula after kidney transplantation. Urology, 79(5): e71.
Urinary fistula is a one of the most common complications after kidney transplantation. Conservative treatment with stent and Foley catheter drainage may be tried, however in some cases more invasive approach is needed. Caliceal fistula is a rare condition and the diagnosis may be missed. Here we present an interesting case of caliceal-cutaneous fistula diagnosed by computed tomography after living kidney transplantation. After failure of conservative management, the patient was successfully ... [Abstract] [Full-text]

Endovascular techniques have shown to be useful in the management of vascular injuries because they transform a complex and potentially dangerous procedure into a safe one. We present the case of a 39-year-old man with congestive heart failure and abdominal bruit 11 years after an abdominal gunshot wound. Imaging studies revealed an arteriovenous fistula involving the left iliac artery bifurcation, and an iliac branch device was used to treat it. Symptoms resolved, and follow-up imaging showed ...

Arteriovenous fistula after endovenous ablation for varicose veins. J Vasc Surg, 55(5): 1492-4.
Endovenous ablation, using radiofrequency or laser, is becoming the mainstay of treatment for symptomatic varicose veins in the setting of saphenous vein incompetency. Both procedures have been shown to produce high rates of truncal vein occlusion with few complications. This article presents three patients who developed arteriovenous fistula (AVF) following great saphenous vein treatment: two following radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and one following laser ablation. This is the first published ... [Abstract] [Full-text]
