Advanced Practice Professionals and an Outpatient Clinic: Improving Longitudinal Care in an Interventional Radiology Practice
Semin intervent Radiol 2019; 36: 013-016 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1683357The field of interventional radiology (IR) has made tremendous advances in both scope and practice since its inception in the early 1960s. With these advances, it has solidified itself as a valuable subspecialty to the medical community and, most importantly, to the patients who receive IR care. Expanding clinical services to improve care in both the pre- and postprocedural setting is a logical step in IR maturation. The use of advanced practice professionals, in the form of physician assistants and nurse practitioners, can add value in both quality of the...

Semin intervent Radiol 2018; 35: 435-442 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1676322Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a prevalent, morbid, and mortal disease. Claudication represents an early, yet common manifestation of PAD. A clinical history and physical examination combined with an ankle-brachial index can help make a diagnosis of claudication. Due to the polyvascular nature of the underlying atherosclerosis, PAD is often associated with heart disease and stroke. Although health implications of PAD derive from both its limb and cardiovascular manifestations, claudication is life-threatening, less limb-threatening. Medical modificat...

Percutaneous Vertebral Augmentation Techniques in Osteoporotic and Traumatic Fractures
The objectives are to consolidate the fracture and, if possible, to restore the height of the vertebral body to reduce vertebral and regional kyphosis. Stabilization of the fracture leads to a reduction in pain and thus restores the spinal support function as quickly as possible, which is particularly important in the elderly. The effectiveness of these interventions on fracture pain was challenged once by two randomized trials comparing vertebroplasty to a sham intervention. Since then, many other randomized studies in support of vertebroplasty efficacy have been published. International recommendations reserve vertebropl...

Acute Portal Vein Thrombosis: Current Trends in Medical and Endovascular Management
Semin intervent Radiol 2018; 35: 198-202 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1660798Acute portal vein thrombosis (PVT) is a relatively rare diagnosis with a nonspecific clinical presentation. Imaging plays an important role in establishing the diagnosis as well as the etiology and complications of acute PVT. Prompt diagnosis is essential to prevent catastrophic short-term complications including bowel infarction, sepsis, and possible death; missed diagnosis can also result in the long-term sequelae of portal hypertension. Differentiation of acute from chronic PVT is crucial as management strategies differ. Currently, guidelines for treati...

Hepatorenal Syndrome: Physiology, Diagnosis and Management
Semin intervent Radiol 2018; 35: 194-197 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1660797Individuals with end-stage liver disease are susceptible to a myriad of highly morbid complications, including hepatorenal syndrome (HRS). This specific type of renal dysfunction in patients with underlying liver disease occurs in pathophysiologically normal kidneys and is a result of renal vasoconstriction secondary to diminished renal blood flow in the setting of worsening hepatic dysfunction. Liver transplantation is curative; shortage of available organs limits access to this beneficial therapy. Medical management of HRS has demonstrated increasing pro...
