1.  Dual arterial supply to normal lung: within the sequestration spectrum 
The British Journal of Radiology  2010;83(989):e086-e089.
We report a rare case of dual arterial supply to an otherwise normal left lower lobe. In addition to normal pulmonary arterial supply, the lower lobe of the left lung also received systemic arterial supply from the coeliac axis. The relevant anatomy and literature are reviewed. To the best of our knowledge, there are no other reported cases of anomalous systemic arterial supply from the coeliac axis to the basal segments of the left lower lobe with normal bronchial branching and pulmonary arterial supply.

2.  Skull base hydatid cyst with intracranial extension presenting as vocal cord palsy: a case report 
The British Journal of Radiology  2010;83(987):e067-e069.
Hydatid disease of the skull base is extremely rare, and intracranial extension of hydatid cysts through the skull base is even rarer. We report an interesting case of a 42-year-old man who presented with features of right vocal cord palsy. The diagnosis of hydatid cyst was made based on his history and on pre-operative MRI and was confirmed by surgery and histopathological examination.

3.  Transjugular intrahepatic portocaval shunt placed through the strut of an inferior vena cava stent in a patient with Budd–Chiari syndrome: a technical modification 
The British Journal of Radiology  2010;83(985):e022-e024.
Transjugular intrahepatic portocaval shunt (TIPS) is performed in patients with symptomatic Budd–Chiari syndrome (BCS) who do not have repairable hepatic veins. We report the case of a patient who had an inferior vena cava (IVC) stent placed previously as part of the management for BCS, and who subsequently required TIPS. The TIPS tract was created through the strut of the previously placed IVC stent; the TIPS stent was placed after dilatation of the liver parenchyma as well as the strut of the IVC stent. This novel technique of “strutplasty” of a previously placed stent as part of TIPS has not been reported in the literature.
