Abstract

Major interventional uroradiologic techniques including percutaneous nephrostomy, vascular augmentation and reduction procedures, percutaneous cyst aspiration, chronic peritoneal dialysis catheter manipulation and urethroplasty are reviewed. A brief history of the development and techniques for performing these procedures are included. The results of clinical series are assessed and their role in patient management is addressed. The development of these procedures has had a significant impact on patient care by providing effective nonoperative therapy.
