First EasyX Case report in Nicosia General Hospital, Cyprus
A 64-year Old patient presented to the nephrostomy department of Nicosia General Hospital with chronic allograft nephropathy and elevation of the inflammatory markers due to acute rejection of the non-functioning renal transplant.
After clinical examination and review of the patient’s History and laboratory values, an embolization of the non-functioning renal transplant in the (Rt) iliac fossa was performed in the interventional radiology sector of Nicosia General Hospital from Dr. Nektarios Poullos (Interventional Radiologist, Head of Interventional Radiology Sector of Nicosia General Hospital, Cyprus).
After selective catheterization of the main renal arteries of the renal transplant in the right iliac fossa with vertebral catheter, a super selective embolization of the renal transplant segment arteries with liquid emolic material (EasyX) and retractable platinum coils via microcatheter in the proximal region of the main renal arteries was successfully performed.
In this first use, I found it beneficial that the embolic liquid did not need any preparation, saving time during the embolization, and the microcatheter was moved inside the embolic liquid without being clogged.
The Patient was stable after the procedure without any major complications, except from local pain for a short time in the context of post-embolic syndrome.
