The premier journal of vascular and interventional radiology

Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology

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 

May JVIR forms a fascicle of divergent papers, like a great week in a good IR practice. Among the bounty—timely readmission rates in IR, long-term EVAR results, new TEVAR device outcomes, and the results of coil embolizations as part of prostate embolization. And then, to saphenous vein glue recanalization, elastography in Budd-Chiari patients, round ligament embolization in postparty hemorrhage, and differing lymphatic approaches to postoperative chylothoraces. And then, to AV fistula salvage with and without accessory vein embolizations, sonographic renal denervation, 99Tc-MAA and glass-based TARE biodistributions with functional imaging, and predictors of PICC failure. Lots of letters and vigorous correspondence and good dialogue.

In this issue, we also proudly celebrate our top JVIR Editor awardees for clinical research and laboratory investigations, and our entire reviewer group.

Get IR means Get JVIR—Any way you need it, anytime.

JVIR = multimedia. Think print, e-pub, JVIR Access blog, JVIR Resource Centers, Instagram, Twitter, podcasts, videos, supplemental online materials, CME, Facebook . . .
