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 1971 Stropnik and Obrez described angiographic diagnostic examination of gastrointestinal bleeding.19 In early 1970s, Stropnik reported on angiographic image of the liver cirrhosis20 and on diagnostic importance of variations of celiac trunk.21 Carotid angiography was performed either by direct injection through a percutaneously inserted needle or by catheter technique. Neuroradiologist Martin Čerk reported on occlusion of internal carotid artery.22 Čerk, Tomaž Kregar and Miha Škrbec published their own experiences on cerebral angiography.23 Soklič, Stropnik, Obrez, Košir and Baretić-Kolar published the use of selective angiography in the diagnosis of intraluminal and extraluminal abdominal bleeding. They described that duodenal blood supply originates both from the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries. It was often necessary to inject each artery separately in order to demonstrate the site of bleeding.24 Jože Košir and Nataša Budihna compared isotope venography with conventional venogram in patients with deep vein thrombosis of the limb.25 Jurij Us and Jože Košir investigated the potential of the internal mammary artery angiography for the diagnosis of the breast diseases (Figure 2).26 Other people like Uroš Vizijak from Celje, Marijan Pocajt, Dušan Tomažic and Jože Matela from Maribor, Jože Kocijančič from Murska Sobota, and Dušan Pavčnik and Sead Galijaš from Nova Gorica have to be given credit for the development of angiography in Slovenia as well (Figures 3, 4).
