Interventional Radiology in Paediatrics

Author(s): Samantha J. Chippington, Susie J. Goodwin.

Abstract:

As in adult practice, there is a growing role for paediatric interventional radiology expertise in the management of paediatric pathologies. This review is targeted for clinicians who may refer their patients to paediatric interventional radiology services, or who are responsible for patients who are undergoing paediatric interventional radiology procedures. The article includes a brief overview of the indications for intervention, techniques involved and the commonest complications. Although some of the procedures described are most commonly performed in a tertiary paediatric centre, many are performed in most Children’s hospitals.

Keywords: Paediatric interventional radiology.
