ECIO 2017: Leading the way in IO

We spoke with delegates to find out why they came to ECIO, what their highlights were and what they think of the European Conference on Interventional Oncology. We hope you enjoy!



Treatment Methods and Latest Research in Early-stage HCC

According to the BCLC staging, early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma is categorised as patients with a good performance status (PS 0) and Child-Pugh scores of A or B with up to three tumour nodules each measuring less than 3 cm.



Intermediate-stage HCC: Exploring Treatment Options

While the classically recommended treatment option for intermediate-stage HCC patients is transarterial chemoembolisation (TACE), this decision should always be made on an individual case basis and other options are worth considering, such as radioembolisation and percutaneous ablation.



Oncologic Management of Metastatic Disease: Focus on Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

It is estimated that 50-60% of colorectal cancer patients will develop metastases during the course of their disease, with up to 25% presenting with synchronous lesions.


CIRSE 2016


Expanding Evidence, Enhancing Engagement

CIRSE 2016 was held in Barcelona, Spain, and Scientific Programme Chairperson Christoph Binkert explains some of the key features of this year’s meeting, and how interventional radiology is becoming more evidence-driven.



IDEAS 2016: Consolidating a New Endovascular Aortic Symposium

We caught up with interventionalists and surgeons at the second Interdisciplinary Endovascular Aortic Symposium, which took place during CIRSE 2016. This year saw the launch of the IDEAS Training Village, where delegates could practice stent graft placement for both the thoracic and abdominal aorta.



PErFecTing Collaboration in Prostate Artery Embolisation

Prostate artery embolisation for benign prostatic obstruction is a complex IR procedure that requires an extensive amount of embolisation experience in order to achieve the best results. Leaders in the procedure Francisco Carnevale, Nigel Hacking and Hugo Rio Tinto discuss the newest research and techniques as well as the best methods for collaboration.



The Emerging Role of Endovascular Stroke Therapy

Stroke is the prevalent cause for disability among adults in the industrialised world and one of the most common causes for death globally. At CIRSE 2016, we spoke to Dr. Tommy Andersson, Prof. Klaus Hausegger and Dr. Raman Uberoi about the clinical management and current therapy options for acute ischaemic stroke patients.



Interventional Radiology in Practice

The core skills and techniques used in minimally invasive, image-guided therapies have allowed the subspecialty to expand rapidly, playing a vital role in both elective and emergency treatment for many patient groups. At CIRSE 2016, we spoke to Prof. Anna Belli, CIRSE President Prof. Elias Brountzos, ESR vice-President Prof. Lorenzo Derchi, Dr. Raf Patel and Prof. Philipp Schaefer about the future of patient care and training in interventional radiology.



Critical Limb Ischaemia and the Diabetic Foot Patient

As the prevalence of peripheral artery disease (PAD) rapidly rises, minimally invasive endovascular procedures to treat this disease have also subsequently risen. In this video filmed at CIRSE 2016, Dr. Konstantinos Katsanos, Dr. Maria Ruffino and Prof. Stefan Müller-Hülsbeck talk about the most advanced stage of peripheral artery disease, critical limb ischaemia (CLI) and how the CLI, or diabetic foot, patient differs from the average PAD patient.
