Interventional Radiology treatments now play a major role in many disease processes and continues to grow with new procedures added to the armamentarium of the interventional radiologist, almost on a yearly basis. Interventional radiology because of its pivotal role in medical care, requires its own teaching curriculum.Recognising this, the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) devised an undergraduate curriculum in IR, specifically designed for teaching medical students.
This book will be primarily of benefit to medical students. In addition, it will also be of help to non-radiology junior hospital doctors and general practitioners.
This books aims to bring together the best available current treatment and information, including recent guidelines, meta-analyses, and randomised trials to help put evidence-based therapeutic recommendations into practice.
Innovative therapeutic treatment options are not currently incorporated within standard procedure, and this book will help physicians include these methods and create more individualised treatment.

Mesenteric Vascular Disease: Current Therapy will serve as a very useful resource for clinicians, surgeons, interventionalists, gastroenterologists and researchers dealing with and interested in mesenteric vascular diseases.
Mitral Valve Repair and the recently published Aortic Root Surgery are book publications arising from the Berlin Heart Valve Symposium 2008 entitled “ The Biological Solution”. The Mitral Valve Repair session was postponed to June 2009 and was featured as the Berlin Mitral Valve Symposium at the joint meeting of the Society for Heart Valve Diseases and the Heart Valve Society of America in Berlin. The book contains a collection of proceedings on current techniques and outcomes of mitral valve repair by many of the experts in this field which provide an authoritative reference source for cardiac surgeons, family practitioners and clinicians.
Interventional radiology training has evolved rapidly during the last decade, with recent recognition as a primary medical specialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties. The number of IR residency positions continues to increase each year with a greater number of trainees rotating through the IR elective. The bar is set high and expectations of trainees have increased. Written clearly, concisely, and at a trainee's level, Pocketbook of Clinical IR: A Concise Guide to Interventional Radiology by Shantanu Warhadpande, Alex Lionberg, and Kyle Cooper is the first IR pocketbook written specifically for medical students and junior residents to help them excel on their IR rotation.
This book will help trainees to intelligently field IR consults, effectively round on patients, and develop an understanding of IR disease processes. Concise yet thorough, it provides a solid clinical foundation to underlying pathologies and procedures, and embodies the authors' philosophy that the IR education paradigm should be transformed into one in which the clinical care of patients is of equal importance to technical procedural training.
Key FeaturesClinical background on hepatobiliary, oncologic, arterial, venous, genitourinary, and neurologic diseases frequently encountered in IRInsightful clinical algorithms provide guidance on how the IR procedure fits into the big pictureConcise procedure boxes provide an overview of how the procedure is performed so the trainee can be an active participant in any IR procedure
This practical white-coat companion is essential for all trainees involved with interventional radiology.
