Prediction of the effect of injected ethanol on pulmonary arterial pressure during sclerotherapy of arteriovenous malformations: relationship with dose of ethanol
To prospectively evaluate the effect of injected ethanol on pulmonary artery pressure during embolosclerotherapy of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). This prospective study was conducted in 16 male and 14 female patients (37 sessions; mean age, 34 years; age range, 17-67 years) with AVMs during a 2-year period. The authors measured pulmonary artery pressure via a pulmonary artery catheter and ethanol levels from the pulmonary and radial arteries simultaneously within 3 minutes after each ethanol injection. The authors analyzed the relationship between pulmonary artery pressure and ethanol levels obtained from pulmonary and radial arteries with respect to both single and cumulative doses of ethanol injected. Retrospectively, patients were divided into two groups-those treated with and those treated without vascular occlusion techniques. The radial arterial ethanol level showed good correlation with the pulmonary arterial ethanol level (r = 0.7). Single dose per injection was statistically related with pulmonary artery pressure (r = 0.5 vs 0.1 and P < .05 vs .29, respectively, in patients treated without and patients treated with vascular occlusion techniques), and the correlation coefficient between cumulative dose and pulmona...Continue Reading
