S. Sprayregen, N. H. Messinger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this communication, selective visceral angiograms of 61 patients who were studied for jaundice are reviewed, and the significance of positive and negative findings described. The angiographic appearance of dilated hepatic ducts with obstructive jaundice is emphasized, since the appearance and frequency of this finding have not been sufficiently stressed in the past, and because defects due to dilated hepatic ducts may be misinterpreted as hepatic metastases.
