Radiological Interventions in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Hardback Book

Radiological Interventions in Obstetrics and Gynaecology Hardback

Edited by Dr John Reidy, Nigel Hacking, Bruce McLucas

Part of the Medical Radiology series


This book provides a state-of-the-art review of the technical and clinical aspects of the vascular interventional radiological (IR) procedures currently employed in obstetrics and gynaecology.

A particular focus is on uterine artery embolisation for fibroid disease, which is contrasted with the main alternative uterus-conserving surgical approach of myomectomy, and with ablation therapy.

Detailed consideration is also given to the role of embolisation in a variety of other less common conditions, including arteriovenous malformations, post-partum haemorrhage, abnormal placentation and pelvic congestion syndrome.

IR procedures are examined from a critical gynaecological perspective and with regard to surgical alternatives.

The authors include leading interventional radiologists and gynaecologists from the United Kingdom, Europe and North America.
