My husband (liver transplant receipient for psc) had an mri done recently to compare to angiogram results post transplant 6 months ago.
Can anyone give me a layman's interpretation of the resluts and concerns.
Regards the comment on aorta, his dad suffered and died from an aortic aneurysm that ruptured.

Findings: focal stenosis at ostium of celiac axis with a maximum luminal diameter of 2mm, spanning a distance of apprx. 8 mm. Mild post stenotic dilatation. No evidence of other stenosis. The anastomosis withinn the hepatic artery related to the prior transplant is not clearly localized. Aorta is abnormal in apearance and calibre. Superiro mesenteric artery is unremarkable.

Opinion: focal stenosis at origin of celiac access with approximately 75% luminal narrowing (short segment stenosis with mild stenotic dilatation). Not appreciably changed in comparison with angiogram in august 04.

The recent Angiogram does not indicate any major changes in the findings of the prior angiogram done in Aug 2004. There is a 75 % reduction of blood flow due to the stenosis of the Coeliac artery ostia.

It would be recommended to consult with a hepatologist in person and seek a proper opinion about further management.
