Veus Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice explores the theoretical advantages and clinical implications for utilizing Veus Embolization techniques, including portal vein and hepatic vein embolization. The practice of veus 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 w considered the standard of care at many hepatobiliary centres worldwide. Veus 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 carcima using portal vein embolization after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization) and future perspectives. This book is a valuable resource for interventional radiologists and surgical oncologists who perform the embolization procedures and liver resections. Veus Embolization of the Liver: Radiologic and Surgical Practice can also be used secondarily by diagstic radiologists, medical oncologists specializing in gastrointestinal malignancies, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, liver transplant surgeons and basic scientists interested in liver regeneration physiology research.
