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: Between 1969 and 1980 Slovenian radiologists issued many reports and published papers on interventional radiology procedures. Auersperg, Us-Krasovec and Obrez introduced the use of selective intra-arterial chemotherapy and reported its complication.42,43 Obrez reported experimental study on temporary occlusion of the renal artery and its effects and significance.44 Obrez and Kubicka reported simultaneous infusion of vasopressin into two arteries to control massive colonic hemorrhage using a new catheter.45,46 Marijan Jereb published the usefulness of needle biopsy in chest lesions of different sizes and locations. Direct puncture technique proved to be an invaluable aid in the diagnosis of chest lesions.47 Jurij Us reported on aspiration biopsy of the retroperitoneal lymph nodes in 1977.26 In 1980, Obrez made an attempt to define the present status of IR at home and abroad. He stated that IR occupies a unique place in medicine. Obrez performed the first PTA of superficial femoral artery in 1978.48,49 In Ljubljana University Clinical Centre, Miro Košak was the head of cardiovascular surgery and we all knew it. He respected Ivo Obrez because of his knowledge, catheter skills and clinical judgment. Košak offered surgical stand by to radiologists when performing balloon angioplasty procedures including PTA of femoral, iliac or renal artery.49 Viktor Videčnik, Elizabeta Baretić-Kolar and Miloš Šurlan reported on thrombolytic therapy for femoro-popliteal occlusions. The lysis has been helped by streptokinase and urokinase. The underlying stenoses were treated by PTA (Figures 5, 6, 7).50
