Slovenian experience from diagnostic angiography to interventional radiology.

Pavcnik D - Radiol Oncol (2014)

Bottom Line: The purpose of writing this article is to document the important events and people in the first 50 years of diagnostic angiography and interventional radiology in Slovenia.During this period not only did the name of the institutions and departments change, but also its governance.This depicted the important roles different people played at various times in the cardiovascular divisions inside and outside of the diagnostic and interventional radiology.

ABSTRACT

Background: The purpose of writing this article is to document the important events and people in the first 50 years of diagnostic angiography and interventional radiology in Slovenia. During this period not only did the name of the institutions and departments change, but also its governance.

Conclusions: This depicted the important roles different people played at various times in the cardiovascular divisions inside and outside of the diagnostic and interventional radiology. Historical data show that Slovenian radiology has relatively immediately introduced the new methods of interventional radiology in clinical practice.

Mentions: In 1993, the first TIPS was created by the self expanding Wallstent in Ljubljana. Creation of this shunt resulted in a decrease of 18 mmHg in portal pressure. The main advantage of Wallstent was its extreme flexibility. Being encouraged by this result, Pavčnik and Šurlan attempted TIPS in additional patients with severe cirrhosis and variceal hemorrhage.71 Peter Popovič et al. reported TIPS versus endoscopic sclerotherapy in the elective treatment of recurrent variceal bleeding (Figures 10–15).72
