Hide Abstract
A 42-year-old woman came to the emergency department with acute abdominal pain. CT-scan showed an isolated dissection of the A. mesenterica superior and signs of ischaemic colitis. The patient was treated with endovascular stent placement in the artery and partial small bowel resection.

Management of liver adenomatosis by radiofrequency ablation.
Dig Surg
PUBLISHED: 05-04-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Traditionally, surgical resection has been the treatment of choice in many patients with hepatocellular adenoma because of the risk of rupture, hemorrhage and malignant transformation. However, some patients are not amenable for surgery due to the extensive involvement of the liver, as in patients with liver adenomatosis. We report 2 cases with liver adenomatosis in which we combined surgery with open and percutaneous radiofrequency ablation for lesions located in both lobes of the liver. Minimal invasive treatment including radiofrequency ablation may offer new perspectives in the treatment of patients with liver adenomatosis.

Hide Abstract
To report the clinical efficiency and complications in patients treated with retrograde transvenous ethanol embolization of high-flow peripheral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Retrograde transvenous ethanol embolization of high-flow AVMs is a technique that can be used to treat AVMs with a dominant outflow vein whenever conventional interventional procedures have proved insufficient.

Protein kinase B (PKB/c-akt) regulates homing of hematopoietic progenitors through modulation of their adhesive and migratory properties.

Hide Abstract
Limited number of hematopoietic stem cells in umbilical cord blood (UCB) presents a problem when using UCB for stem cell transplantation. Improving their homing capacity could reduce the need for high initial cell numbers during transplantation procedures. Although it is evident that protein kinase B (PKB/c-Akt) plays an important role in regulation of migration of various cell types, a role for PKB in regulation of migration and homing of human hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells remains to be determined. PKB activity was found to be required for induction of adhesion to bone marrow-derived stromal cells and detrimental for migration of UCB-derived CD34(+) hematopoietic progenitors. In addition, PKB activity was found to positively regulate integrin expression. CD34(+) hematopoietic progenitors, and their capacity to form colonies in vitro, were not affected by transient inhibition of PKB. Finally, transplantation of ?2-microglobulin(-/-) nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient mice with CD34(+) cells ectopically expressing constitutively active PKB resulted in reduced migration to the bone marrow, whereas inhibition of PKB activity resulted in an induction in bone marrow homing and engraftment. These results indicate that transient inhibition of PKB activity may provide a means for ex vivo stem cell manipulation to improve bone marrow transplantation regimes.

[The radiologist as the treating physician for cancer: interventional oncology].
Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Interventional oncology is a new specialism which focuses on image-guided minimal-invasive treatment of cancer patients. Interventional oncology has joined the traditional treatments of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy as the fourth pillar of cancer care. Oncological interventions can be divided into three categories: intra-arterial techniques, tumour ablation techniques, and palliative procedures. Two examples of such interventions in Dutch hospitals are the intra-arterial Yttrium-90 microsphere radioembolisation of colorectal liver metastases and the CT-guided radiofrequency ablation of tumours such as renal cell carcinoma. In interventional oncology all procedures are performed under image guidance. Imaging is used to guide the instruments and for real-time monitoring of the procedure.

Long-term patient satisfaction after percutaneous treatment of peripheral vascular malformations.
Radiology
PUBLISHED: 03-31-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
To determine long-term patient satisfaction for percutaneous treatment by using sclerosing agents (sclerotherapy) and/or arterial embolization for peripherally located vascular malformations (VMs). This treatment has been described as successful; however, there is a relative paucity of published long-term results.

Assessment of viable tumour tissue attached to needle applicators after local ablation of liver tumours.
Dig Surg
PUBLISHED: 01-23-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Local recurrence and needle track seeding are serious complications after local ablation for liver malignancies and potentially affect long-term survival. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of viable tissue adherent to the needle applicators after ablation to gain insight into the possible mechanisms of local recurrence and needle track seeding.

Elastoplasty: first experience in 12 patients.
Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Percutaneous vertebroplasty with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is used increasingly for pain relief in symptomatic neoplastic or osteoporotic compression fractures. However, restoration of the stiffness of the treated vertebrae might propagate secondary fracture of adjacent vertebrae. Elastoplasty might prevent these secondary fractures. We assessed retrospectively our experience with elastoplasty in 12 patients, focusing on silicone migration.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
