Urachal remnant disease is a relatively rare urological condition that presents a variety of clinical problems in adult patients. Contrast-enhanced multi-detector row computed tomography (MDCT) urography is a new diagnostic imaging technique providing comprehensive evaluation of the upper and lower urinary tract. MDCT urography performed with a combination of unenhanced, nephrographic phase, and excretory-phase imaging can demonstrate a wide spectrum of disease in these patients with a single study. We report a case of vesicourachal diverticulum containing calculus, which was diagnosed by MDCT urography. © Turkish Society of Radiology 2010.

A knowledge of normal anatomy as well as the most frequent variants and abnormalities of the portal venous system are of great importance for liver surgery and interventional procedures. An understanding of the varied MDCT appearances of these abnormalities will allow more definitive diagnoses and help avoid false diagnoses. © Turkish Society of Radiology 2011.

Artificial chordal replacement with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene is an established technique for mitral valve repair. This report describes a simple technique of using Hegar dilators for making premeasured artificial chordal loops, whether as a single set of loops or as two connected sets of loops arising from the same stem. This technique uses a simple and widely available tool, the Hegar dilator, for preparation of chordal loops and further establishes the repair of opposing two segments of mitral valve by securing only one stem of the neochordae to the papillary muscle. © 2010 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

Celiac trunk variants and pathologies are relatively common occurrences. With the advent of computed tomography (CT) technology, these conditions are being diagnosed with an increased frequency even among asymptomatic patients. CT angiography is used noninvasively for preoperative staging and vascular mapping in patients with pancreatic and hepatobiliary neoplasm. Multidetector-row CT (MDCT) also allows the accurate depiction of the abdominal splanchnic vessels for stenosis, collateral vessels and atherosclerotic plaques. In this study, we describe the normal anatomy and variants of the celiac trunk as well as associated pathologic conditions, such as stenosis, occlusion, aneurysm and median arcuate ligament compression syndrome. The overall aim of this study was to emphasize the clinical importance of these abnormalities. © Turkish Society of Radiology 2011.

Though congenital anomalies of the pancreas and pancreatic duct are relatively uncommon and they are often discovered as an incidental finding in asymptomatic patients, some of these anomalies may lead to various clinical symptoms such as recurrent abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Recognition of these anomalies is important because these anomalies may be a surgically correctable cause of recurrent pancreatitis or the cause of gastric outlet obstruction. An awareness of these anomalies may help in surgical planning and prevent inadvertent ductal injury. The purpose of this article is to review normal pancreatic embryology, the appearance of ductal anatomic variants and developmental anomalies of the pancreas, with emphasis on magnetic resonance cholangiopancreaticography and multidetector computed tomography.
