Abstract

The use of radiologically guided percutaneous procedures has greatly reduced the morbidity and mortality of gynaecological oncology patients. Certain procedures, previously requiring major surgery, can now be performed with little patient discomfort, with conscious sedation instead of general anaesthesia, and frequently on an outpatient basis. In this chapter, diagnostic and therapeutic arteriography and venography will be discussed as well as radiologically guided genitourinary interventions. This represents an overview of what is available to the gynaecologist from the interventional radiologist in his/her practice.
