A high-yield guide for interventional radiologists on venous thromboembolic disease
Epidemiological analyses estimate venous thromboembolism (VTE) impacts as many as 600,000 individuals annually in the United States, and it is the leading preventable cause of in-hospital mortality. Diagnosing VTE based on clinical symptoms is generally unreliable due to nonspecific signs, while patient management is influenced by thrombosis severity, location, and underlying risk factors. Practical Guides in Interventional Radiology: Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) by renowned radiologists Jeffrey Weinstein, Jeet Minocha, and Joshua D. Dowell focuses on helping clinicians improve VTE diagnosis, decision-making, and procedural outcomes.
The first chapter covers interventional radiology basics that lay the groundwork for effective management of patients with VTE, including pathogenesis, patient diagnosis, and medical therapies. Chapters 2 and 3 discuss pharmacologic treatment and imaging of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary emboli (PE), respectively. Chapters 4 to 9 provide practical guidance on patient selection and workup, basic and complex interventional techniques, and management of potential complications for a variety of pathologies and interventions. The final chapter presents a Q&A and VTE-related safety issues.
- An authoritative review of VTE by a curated collection of experts in the field
- A reader-friendly primer on the evaluation and management of DVT, PE, and intracardiac thrombus based on evidence-based practices
- Practical guidance on deployment and retrieval of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters
This resource is essential reading for interventional radiology residents and fellows, as well as early-career clinicians who are intricately involved in the management of patients with deep venous disease.
