About this book

Venous Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice explores the theoretical advantages and clinical implications for utilizing Venous Embolization techniques, including portal vein and hepatic vein embolization.

 

The practice of venous embolization of the liver was originally developed in Japan by Dr. Makuuchi (one of the co-editors of this book) in 1990 and since then, the techniques reviewed in this book are practiced throughout the world and are now considered the “standard of care” at many hepatobiliary centres worldwide.

 

Venous Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice covers a multitude of topics, including: pertinent vascular (microscopic and macroscopic) and surgical anatomy, liver regeneration (including the atrophy-hypertrophy complex), historical perspectives of major hepatic resection, various hepatobiliary surgical procedures , factors affecting hypertrophy, pathophysiology of embolization and resection, embolization techniques (including approaches and embolic agents), the indications for embolization and resection (including pre-operative volumetric and functional assessment and post-embolization followup), potential complications, outcomes data for different diseases, recently advocated strategies (including “definitive” treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma using portal vein embolization after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization) and future perspectives.

 

This book is a valuable resource for interventional radiologists and hepatobiliary surgeons who perform the embolization procedures and liver resections. Venous Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice can also be used secondarily by diagnostic radiologists, medical oncologists specializing in gastrointestinal malignancies, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, liver transplant surgeons and basic scientists interested in liver regeneration physiology research.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides a comprehensive review of not only the state of the art of portal vein embolisation but the whole process of assessing and bringing patients to resection. As such, from a radiological perspective it will be of interest to the diagnostic radiologist assessing for resectability and measuring liver volumes and the interventionalist performing the embolisation.” (Graham Munneke, RAD Magazine, April, 2013)

“Venous Embolization of the Liver fills a useful niche and provides a thorough review of venous embolization of the liver, especially as it relates to optimization of the results associated with partial hepatectomies. The abstract of each chapter of this well organized and in-depth work also provides the reader significant insight into the content of each chapter. Reading Venous Embolization of the Liver is a worthwhile endeavor for the interventional radiologist, hepatobiliary surgeon, or advanced trainee involved or interested in the treatment of hepatobiliary disease.” (Sean Kalagher, Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, Vol. 24 (4), April, 2013)

“This book addresses a very important, practical and fascinating topic: how to manage patients affected by primary liver tumours or by secondary lesions due to primary colorectal cancer, utilizing venous embolization of the affected parenchyma. … This is a book that will be appreciated not only by interventional radiologists and hepatobiliary surgeons, but also by the broad audience of those dedicated to the treatment of liver diseases and to research in the field.” (G. Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 118 (2), March, 2013)

Venous Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice, has been Highly Commended in the Radiology category of the 2012 BMA Medical Book Awards
