Radiological Interventions in Obstetrics and Gynaecology Hardback
Edited by Dr John Reidy, Nigel Hacking, Bruce McLucas
Part of the Diagnostic Imaging 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.
