Abstract

The value of angiography in the investigation of diseases of the intrathoracic, intra-abdominal and intracranial organs and of the peripheral vascular system is well established (Allison 1986a), but the techniques have had a more limited role in orthopaedic practice. Nevertheless angiography, correctly used, can make a major contribution to clinical decisions regarding the treatment of bone tumours and is certainly extremely valuable in certain cases of skeletal trauma. Recent developments, such as the availability of low-osmolality contrast media and digital subtraction techniques, have increased the safety and flexibility of the technique. The great advances in interventional radiology have also expanded the role of angiography in the treatment of bone tumours and traumatic lesions.
