Mumbai, 3rd -6th November 2016
Interventional radiology in CHC management has become essential. Ablation techniques and chemo-embolization complement each other and are involved at all stages of the disease. We will review techniques and indications. The meeting will also simulate multidisciplinary discussions based on selected clinical cases to highlight the role of interventional radiologists in oncology.
Interventional radiology has an increased role in diagnostics but also in treatment of breast lesion. Many techniques are now available to obtain relevant samples for each case by large core or vaccum breast biopsy. If open surgery remains the common approach in 2016 for malignant lesion, several benign lesions and border lesions benefit from nonsurgical removal procedure without further surgery.
Percutaneous treatment of kidney and retro-peritoneal lesions has developed in recent years due to guiding ablation techniques improved efficiency broadening recommendations and indications. Renal transplantation complications are managed by interventional radiology and more recently benign prostatic hyperplasia can benefit in some cases from nonsurgical techniques such as ablation and endovascular embolization.
Chest pathology is a traditional field of vascular and interventional radiology. Development in trans-thoracic biopsies and lung parenchymal ablation now offer alternative care to open surgery. Arteriovenous malformation embolization and management of endovascular lesion or ruptured aneurysms will also be addressed in this session.
Management of primary and metastatic bone lesions uses more and more sophisticated interventional techniques for their ablation and acute and chronic pain management. The various techniques, their characteristics and indications will be addressed during this session.
Vascular pathology is one of the first fields to benefit from radiological interventional techniques. Treatment of stenosis or arterial aneurysms by endovascular path, arteriovenous malformation or fistulas and their complications will be discussed during this session with a focus on acute and chronic mesenteric ischemia. Finally, a new promising technique of haemorrhoids embolization will be presented to close the congress.
