As part of his efforts to raise the profile of paediatric interventional radiology, Prof. Jim Reekers (CVIR Endovascular's Editor-in-Chief) invited us to participate as guest editors for the
journal's first thematic series dedicated to this important topic.
As guest editors we commissioned four articles, inviting world renowned PIR experts to share their knowledge with the IR community. The articles detail the latest evidence for a range of complex interventions in children, demonstrating current best practices in this highly specialised field. Find out more about this exciting project in one of the episodes of the CVIR Endovascular Podcast.
We hope you enjoy browsing through this collection, and encourage you to share them with your colleagues.
