  • THE CAUSE OF SUPERIOR VENA-CAVA SYNDROME - DIAGNOSIS WITH PERCUTANEOUS ATHERECTOMY Dake, M. D., Zemel, G., Dolmatch, B. L., Katzen, B. T. RADIOLOGICAL SOC NORTH AMER. 1990: 957-959

    Abstract:

    The cause of superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) in two patients was identified by means of endovascular biopsy of the superior vena cava (SVC) performed with a percutaneous atherectomy catheter. In both cases, the extracted tissues were neoplastic, therefore obviating additional invasive procedures. After a specific diagnosis was established, external-beam radiation therapy was used to treat the SVCS. The atherectomy catheter was used in conjunction with other percutaneous techniques, including balloon angioplasty and endovascular stenting of the SVC.
