Behcet’s disease (BD) is a vasculitic condition that affects arteries and veins of all sizes. Arterial pseudoaneurysm is a rare but lifethreatening complication of BD. We reported a 41-year-old man with 20 years history of BD and 5 years history of bilateral blindness. The patient presented with sudden onset of pain and swelling in his left groin and was diagnosed with the ruptured pseudoaneurysm of the left common femoral artery (CFA), which extended into the origins of superficial and deep femoral arteries. The patient was in the active phase of BD; therefore, he was initially treated with corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide pulse therapies and subsequently underwent stent graft placement. Post stenting angiography and postprocedural ultrasonography confirmed the successful exclusion of pseudoaneurysm without any evident complication. Four years of follow-up was uneventful
Less invasive treatment
Less invasive treatment is a new method and technique in which instead of relatively large incisions in the patient's body, treatment is performed with only a few small holes and has very low side effects compared to classical treatments. .
A prostate gland biopsy is a test to remove small samples of prostatetissue to be examined under a microscope. For a prostate biopsy, a thin needle is inserted through the rectum(transrectal biopsy), through the urethra, or through the area between the anus and scrotum (perineum). A transrectal biopsy is the most common method used. The tissue samples taken during the biopsy are examined for cancer cells. A biopsy may be done when a blood test shows a high level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) or after a digital rectal examination finds an abnormal prostate or a lump.
The lumbosacral spine is the source of pain, suffering, and disability more frequently than any other part of the body. Pain in the lower back can be managed with computed tomography-guided analgesic interventional procedures, such as periradicular infiltration, percutaneous laser disk decompression, facet joint block, and percutaneous vertebroplasty:
Celiac plexus neurolysis is a safe and effective tool for palliative pain management, with a relatively low rate of complications. Celiac plexus neurolysis should be offered to patients with abdominal malignancy as a key component of the multidisciplinary approach for control of intractable abdominal pain. Appropriate use of cross-sectional imaging knowledge, CT technique, and various adjunctive maneuvers are invaluable to ensure good results
