Lee and Watkinson's Techniques in Interventional Radiology series of handbooks describes in detail the various interventional radiology procedures and therapies that are in current practice. The series covers procedures in angioplasty and stenting, transcatheter embolization and therapy, biopsy and drainage, and ablation. Forthcoming are volumes on pediatric interventional radiology and neurointerventional radiology. Each book is laid out in bullet point format, so that the desired information can be located quickly and easily. Interventional radiologists at all stages, from trainees through to specialists, will find this book a valuable asset for their practice. Transcatheter Embolisation and Therapy approaches the procedure in two ways . Section I systematically describes the techniques of transcatheter embolization and addresses the issues surrounding embolization procedures. Section II presents specific organ systems and pathologies that undergo embolization therapy. Dr. David Kessel is a Consultant Radiologist at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals, UK, and Dr. Charles Ray, Jr. is Professor of Radiology and Co-Director of Research at the University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center, USA.

Advances in endovascular therapy have allowed interventional radiologists to contribute to the management of visceral arterial aneurysms for not only elective interventions but also for urgent procedures in patients presenting visceral arterial aneurysm rupture. The authors describe and illustrate both imaging diagnosis and endovascular therapy of visceral arterial aneurysm based on their experiences. Transcatheter coil embolisation can provide an alternative method of treatment for both ruptured and non-ruptured visceral arterial aneurysms excluding dissecting lesion that is treated by stent-graft. The authors performed transcatheter coil embolisation in the treatment of 20 non-ruptured visceral arterial aneurysms and 8 ruptured lesions. They have included in this book their data and the implications for treating visceral arterial aneurysms.

Endovascular embolization therapy has made remarkable progress during the past two decades, driven primarily by improvements in digital imaging, breakthroughs in microcatheter technology and coil design, and the development of new embolic materials. Initially employed in the management of musculoskeletal trauma, embolization therapy now has a wide range of applications. It permits effective non-operative management of major hepatic, splenic, and renal injuries that once posed a tremendous challenge to the trauma surgeon and has also become an integral facet of the modern oncology center. Further important indications include uterine fibroids, vascular malformations, visceral aneurysms and GI bleeding. This volume and volume 2 present the current state of the art in this exciting and growing field. High informational content is supplemented by detailed graphics, providing a comprehensive reference work for both experts and novices in the field.

Despite the fact that Interventional Radiology is steadily moving toward a cli- cal specialty with the need for broad medical training, daily craftsmanship will always remain fundamental to what an interventional radiologist does. Without basic catheter and wire skills IR would not be what it is today. When I watch ex- rienced colleagues work I am always surprised to see that, concerning the technique and the materials, we all make the same choices. There is apparently a common IR skill, which is universal and can be learned with experience. I always see this with new IR fellows, that it takes time to step away from improvising and letting the p- cedure take the lead to logic and standardized control over a procedure. Choosing the right materials for the right job and building a level of con dence with these materials is a very important part of any IR fellowship. Why can a supervisor get a stable catheter position with a new wire in no time, whereas the fellow almost gives up? The difference is knowing your materials for this speci c indication and c- bining routine and standardized operational procedures. Hands-on workshops are always very popular at every IR meeting because one can really learn about basic skills. Lectures with the title “How I do it,” can always count on a full audience.

This atlas depicts and describes catheter-based interventions across the entire pediatric age range, from fetal life through to early adulthood, with the aim of providing an illustrated step-by-step guide that will help the reader to master these techniques and apply them in everyday practice. Clear instruction is offered on a wide range of procedures, including vascular access, fetal interventions, valve dilatation, angioplasty, stent implantation, defect closure, defect creation, valve implantation, hybrid approaches, and other miscellaneous procedures. The atlas complements the previously published handbook, Cardiac Catheterization for Congenital Heart Disease, by presenting a wealth of photographs, images, and drawings selected or designed to facilitate the planning, performance, and evaluation of diagnostic and interventional procedures in the field of congenital heart disease. It will assist in the safe, efficient performance of these procedures, in decision making, and in the recognition and treatment of complications.
