Dr. Sara Lojo is passionate about interventional radiology and has been involved in the editorial board of many publications since her training. She considers editorialism to be a fundamental tool for training, encouraging its development and bringing it closer to the new generations of IR professionals.
In this Quarterly Update, she will highlight key issues in IR and accompanying CVIR Endovascular articles on the topic.
According to a report published by the WHO last April, infertility affects one
in six adults worldwide. Infertility spares no one: all rich, poor and middle-income countries are affected. It occurs for both male and female causes: approximately one-third have female
etiology, another third have male etiology, and up to one-third have unknown etiology.
Up to 40% of female infertility is considered to be due to problems located in the fallopian tubes and up to 25% to tubal obstruction. Within the etiology of male infertility, varicocele is among the most frequent treatable causes of male infertility and its resolution is beneficial in improving semen parameters and pregnancy rate when patients are properly selected. In addition, interventional radiology also provides treatments for venous and arterial erectile dysfunction.
Interventional radiology advances relentlessly and so do our techniques, with infertility being no exception. Below we leave you related articles, published in CVIR Endovascular, as well as an overview of the special section on women’s health, published in the CIRSE Insider.
In an effort to raise the profile of women’s health, CVIR Endovascular Editor-in-Chief Prof. Jim Reekers invited Dr. Elika Kashef and Dr. Maria Tsitskari, two esteemed editorial board members, to guest edit the journal’s special issue dedicated to this important topic.
