1/16. Intrahepatic arterioportal fistula: gadolinium-enhanced 3D magnetic resonance angiography findings and angiographic embolization with steel coils.

    We describe a case of a 59-year-old patient with intrahepatic arterioportal fistula secondary to blunt trauma sustained by a motor vehicle accident 36 years earlier. The fistula was demonstrated 36 years after the accident in a clinical work-up for diarrhea of 1 month's duration, using contrast enhanced three-dimensional breath-hold MRA. A communication between the dilated portal vein and dilated hepatic artery was shown at the level of distal branches. After subsequent demonstration by conventional angiography, the fistula was embolized using steel coils. Following the therapeutic intervention, the patient's diarrhea ceased.

2/16. Chronic traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta causing right ventricular inflow obstruction.

    A 28-year-old man developed exertional dyspnea and peripheral edema 1 year after the initial blunt trauma to the chest. The diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm (PSA) of the ascending aorta was made based on the echocardiographic finding of a large echo-free space that communicated with the ascending aorta through the defect in the ascending aortic wall. The PSA caused a right ventricular inflow obstruction with increased diastolic transtricuspid blood flow velocity up to 2.7 m/s. Following the excision of the PSA and repair of the communication between it and the ascending aorta, the sizes of the right atrium and right ventricle, and the diastolic transtricuspid blood flow velocity, normalized.

3/16. Early ureteral luminal enhancement on computed tomography in a renal trauma patient: a characteristic sign of communication between artery and collecting system.

    We report the case of a 65-year-old man with blunt abdominal trauma following a fall from a three-meter-high roof. Contrast-enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) obtained in early phase showed intense contrast enhancement in the urinary tract as dense as artery. This finding was considered characteristic of traumatic communication between artery and collecting system. In cases of blunt abdominal trauma, contrast-enhanced CT should be obtained in the early phase to diagnose this disorder. When the diagnosis is made, prompt treatment should be initiated.

4/16. Bilateral intrapulmonary hematomas.

    A 67-yr-old man, known to have chronic obstructive lung disease, developed bilateral localized pulmonary densities on chest radiographs after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. An autopsy disclosed bilateral intrapulmonary hematomas without communication with bronchi, pulmonary arteries, or pleural cavities. We suggest blunt pulmonary injury is the most probable cause of the hematomas and discuss its pathogenic mechanism. Intrapulmonary hematomas should be considered in the differential diagnosis of pulmonary densities developing after a vigorous resuscitation.

5/16. Blunt traumatic rupture of the thoracic oesophagus.

    A man with a crush injury of his upper abdomen developed bilateral pulmonary empyema after repair of tears of the oesophagus and liver. Attempts to withdraw chest drains led to recurrent septicaemia, treated by reinsertion of the drains plus administration of antibiotics. The communication of the empyema space with both the bronchial tree and the oesophagus was managed successfully with intermittent positive pressure ventilation and with a double lumen endobronchial tube isolating the right lung for 10 days. Traumatic rupture of the thoracic oesophagus carries a high mortality and prompt repair is vital.

6/16. Aggressive angiomyxoma with gastrointestinal communication: a case report.

    We report the imaging findings of an abdominal aggressive angiomyxoma, which communicated with the gastrointestinal tract. The literature on this rare tumor is reviewed.

7/16. Hemiazygous continuation of a left inferior vena cava: misleading radiographic findings in chest trauma.

    A widened mediastinum was found on chest radiography following blunt chest trauma. aortography alone could not adequately determine the etiology of the radiographic findings; on computed tomography (CT) benign mediastinal widening was confirmed owing to accessory hemiazygous continuation of a left inferior vena cava (IVC), with communication to the left brachiocephalic vein through an enlarged left superior (highest) intercostal vein. This unusual anatomic variant and its radiographic findings are reviewed, as well as the complementary role of CT in the evaluation of the traumatized thoracic aorta and mediastinum.

8/16. Right sinus of valsalva-right atrial fistula secondary to nonpenetrating chest trauma: a case report with description of noninvasive diagnostic features.

    A sinus of valsalva-right atrial fistula secondary to nonpenetrating chest trauma is described. Echocardiogrpahy demonstrated diastolic fluttering of the anterior tricuspid valve, suggesting a left-to-right shunt at the level of the right atrium. External jugular venous pulse tracings revealed large alpha waves and attenuation of the y descent. cardiac catheterization disclosed a fistulous communication between the right sinus of valsalva and right atrium. After surgical repair of the fistula, the ultrasonic recording and external pulse tracing reverted to normal. We believe this is the first description of such a shunt after blunt thoracic trauma.

9/16. Urethro-cavernous fistula from blunt penile trauma.

    An unusual case of traumatic urethro-cavernous fistula from the fall of a heavy object upon the flaccid penis is described. In the absence of clinical evidence of urinary extravasation, prompt performance of corpus cavernosography helped detect the existence of such a fistulous communication. Institution of prompt suprapubic urinary diversion avoided occurrence of undesirable sequelae to intracorporeal urinary leak and ensured uncomplicated spontaneous closure of the fistula.

10/16. Left ventricular to right atrial defect and tricuspid insufficiency secondary to nonpenetrating cardiac trauma.

    We present a report of a 28-year-old male patient who developed a left ventricular to right atrial communication associated with tricuspid insufficiency secondary to nonpenetrating cardiac trauma. The patient's heart block was clarified by serial observation of electrocardiograms and the use of HIS bundle electrocardiography. The patient's fistula was surgically repaired, and 20 months postinjury he is asymptomatic and pacemaker dependent. echocardiography may aid in the early diagnosis of a left to right shunt and/or tricuspid insufficiency in the setting of possible cardiac trauma.
