JVIR is the official scientific journal of the Society of Interventional Radiology. For more than two decades, this peer-reviewed journal has been the preferred reference of interventional radiologists, radiologists, cardiologists, vascular surgeons, neurosurgeons and other clinicians who need current and reliable information on every aspect of vascular and interventional radiology.
Each issue of JVIR covers the most critical and cutting-edge medical, minimally invasive, radiological, pathological and socioeconomic issues of importance to vascular and interventional radiologists. JVIR brings monthly clinical studies, laboratory investigations, commentaries, reports on interventional procedures, devices, or unique anatomic findings, CME articles, book reviews, “extreme” case studies, societal position statements, and standards of practice, as well as a variety of social and multimedia offerings.
From the editor
April JVIR springs forth with an abundance of IR, including biliary and aortic interventions, oncology, embolization and more.
Included: Risk factors for lung tumor recurrence after ablation, liver ablation near the heart, horseshoe kidney ablation and blood patching after lung biopsies. Three biliary papers review preferred approaches to initial hilar drainage, comparison of radioactive biliary stents and outcomes of salvage drainage after endoscopic failure. Catheter therapies include radiation exposure during prostate embolization, multicenter results of drug-eluting embolization in Korea, systematic/meta-analysis of glue use in GI bleeding and value of MDCT in recurrent hemoptysis after bronchial embolization. Aortic papers include preop side branch embolization (and editor commentary), hybrid therapy for infected aneurysms, and predicting successful vascular closure after EVAR. Will a port or catheter placed through a fresh venous stent work? Tune in to find out. And read and use the important societal reference document on recommended resource and environment standards for IR labs.
Letters, Images in IR and Extreme IR form the interesting interstitium. Join our JVIR Editor Awards for Best Manuscripts, 11,000 @JVIRMedia Twitter followers, our 60,000 JVIRAccess.org blog views and expanded podcasts.
