Radiological Interventions in Obstetrics and Gynecology (Medical Radiology / Diagnostic Imaging)
Radiological interventions in the female pelvis are now widely accepted for the treatment of various gynecological and obstetric disorders. This volume provides a comprehensive and very detailed review of the performance and role of such interventions. Particular attention is devoted to the minimally invasive technique of uterine artery embolization, which has become a reference procedure in the management of life-threatening postpartum hemorrhage and symptomatic uterine fibroids. Other procedures currently under investigation for the treatment of fibroids are also considered in depth. Further chapters are devoted to a range of techniques that are gaining increasing acceptance in the medical community, including fallopian tube recanalization or occlusion, embolization of pelvic varices, and ovarian cyst aspiration. This richly illustrated book, written by key opinion leaders in the field, will be of wide interest to radiologists, gynecologists, and obstetricians.
