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: No single embolic agent is universally applicable to all clinical situations. Ivo Obrez reported the use of gelatin sponge and coils for renal tumor treatment in 1978.57 Prior to performing an embolization, several factors must be considered. These include the desired level of occlusion, the desired duration of occlusion, the relevant vascular anatomy and the available embolic material.57 Martin Čerk reported embolization of anteriovenous malformation by occluding anterior and middle cerebral artery in 1979. He used gelatin sponge.58,59 Various embolic materials have been used clinically to control hemorrhage60, relieve pain, inhibit tumor growth, and facilitate resection by reducing vascularity and tumor bulk. Janko Klančar described embolotherapy of kidney tumors.61 Other applications of embolotherapy were reported by Pavel Berden on ablation of tumors using absolute ethanol62, by Rok Cesar on palliative and preoperative treatment of bone tumors63, by Miloš Šurlan on chemoembolization of malignant liver tumors64 and Dušan Pavčnik on venous impotence and percutaneous embolization treatment (Figures 8, 9).65
