Interventional Radiology Management of Pediatric Chest Disorders
This chapter will focus on diagnostic and therapeutic applications of interventional radiology in the pediatric chest. Diagnostic interventional radiologic topics discussed include patient care and sedation concepts, CT- and US-guided intrathoracic biopsy, thoracic angiography for aortic trauma and other causes of thoracic hemorrhage, and percutaneous intrathoracic lymphangiography. Therapeutic interventional radiologic topics discussed include balloon dilation of esophageal strictures, transesophageal and percutaneous foreign body removal, transarterial embolization treatment for hemoptysis thoracic duct embolization, thermal ablation of treatment of benign and malignant thoracic masses, percutaneous drainage of pulmonary and mediastinal abscesses, transcatheter fibrinolytic therapy for empyema, percutaneous sclerotherapy of vascular malformations, and definitive percutaneous treatment of thoracic aneurysmal bone cysts.
