Lymphatic malformations (LMs; especially those involving the central conducting lymphatic channels) are characterized by dysplastic and incompetent lymphatic channels in multiple tissues and organs. The major cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with thoracic LM is deterioration of pulmonary function due to chronic chylous effusions and progressive interstitial lung disease. The etiology of these pulmonary processes is unknown, although lymphatic involvement is certain. Understanding of the changes in the lymphatic anatomy in patients with LM has been hindered by difficulty of imaging of the lymphatic system...

REVIEW
Sumera Ali, Sally E Mitchell
It is very important that patients seeking sclerotherapy for the treatment of venous malformations are aware of the expected course of the therapy. They should be thoroughly counseled about the complications, the need for multiple sessions of therapy, and also about the expected clinical outcome. The aim of this review is to discuss the long-term outcomes of sclerotherapy for the treatment of venous malformation. Many studies have discussed their individual center's experiences and short-midterm results, but there is a relative paucity of data on long-term outcomes...

Understanding and management of vascular anomalies has always been intriguing. These disorders exhibit an expected pattern of clinical presentation and progression, and characteristic imaging findings. Significant progress in understanding and treating patients with vascular anomalies has been made in the past quarter century. Newer multidisciplinary domains for treating these disorders with medical drugs and less invasive image-guided or surgical procedures are constantly evolving. Vascular anomalies can exhibit aggressive tumor-like behavior resulting in recurrence or persistent symptoms after treatment...

REVIEW
Young Soo Do, Kwang Bo Park
Intraosseous arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) have been associated with distortion, hypertrophy, osteolytic skeletal changes, bleeding, leg length discrepancy, and pathologic fracture. Computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is helpful in the evaluation of the extent and depth of intraosseous AVMs and associated soft-tissue AVMs. Treatment approaches can differ, depending on the angiographic classification. Embolotherapy with ethanol, coils, or n-butyl cyanoacrylate is the primary treatment for symptomatic intraosseous AVMs, and the goal of treatment is symptom improvement with few complications...

REVIEW
Patrick Gilbert, Josée Dubois, Marie France Giroux, Gilles Soulez
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are high-flow vascular anomalies that have demonstrated a very high recurrence rate after endovascular treatment, surgical treatment, or a combination of both. Surgical treatments have shown good response when they are small and well localized but a poor response when diffuse. A better understanding of the nature of the lesion has led to a better response rate and a safer treatment for these patients. This has been accomplished through a detailed understanding of the angioarchitecture of the lesion, enabling a tailored approach in reaching and targeting the nidus of the AVM with different liquid embolic agents, more specifically ethanol...

Patricia E Burrows
This article describes three hereditary conditions known to be associated with arteriovenous malformation (AVM), along with their clinical and imaging features and angiographic angioarchitecture. Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, capillary malformation-AVM (CM-AVM), and PTEN tumor hamartoma syndrome are conditions with autosomal dominant inheritance, caused by mutations in different molecular pathways, which frequently present with symptomatic AVMs. Imaging biomarkers, including sites of predilection, angioarchitecture, and tissue overgrowth patterns, are helpful in identifying these patients and selecting appropriate treatment...

REVIEW
Kiersten W Ricci
Vascular anomalies comprise a spectrum of diseases that are broadly classified as tumors and malformations. Diagnosis is often challenging, given a wide range of clinical presentations with overlapping signs and symptoms. Accurate diagnosis is critical to determine prognosis and to generate a management plan, which frequently involves multiple subspecialists during different phases of treatment. An updated classification system provides structure and clear, consistent terminology, allowing for improved diagnosis, provider communication, and collaboration...

REVIEW
Ha-Long Nguyen, Laurence M Boon, Miikka Vikkula
Vascular anomalies arise as a consequence of improper development and maintenance of the vasculature. Our knowledge on the pathophysiological bases of vascular anomalies has skyrocketed during the past 5 years. It is becoming clear that common intracellular signaling pathways are often activated by mutations, causing endothelial cell dysfunction. These mutations cause hyperactivation of two major intracellular signaling pathways that may be controlled by inhibitors developed for cancer treatment. Although we do not know yet all the downstream effects, it has become evident that normalization of the abnormal signaling is an interesting target for therapy...

REVIEW
Jack E Steiner, Beth A Drolet
Vascular anomalies present both a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to physicians. Identification of these lesions is difficult due to their immense phenotypic variability, and naming conventions for vascular anomalies have historically been inconsistent. Terms such as "hemangioma" are informative when used correctly, but can cause confusion and miscommunication if applied indiscriminately to all vascular anomalies. Accuracy in classification is essential, as both disease course and therapeutic options differ greatly depending on the particular vascular anomaly present...

Therapeutic ultrasound approaches including high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) are emerging as popular minimally invasive alternative treatments for localized, low-to-intermediate risk prostate cancer. FDA approval was recently granted for two ultrasound-guided HIFU devices. Clinical trials for devices using MRI guidance are ongoing. The current level of evidence for whole-gland ultrasound ablation suggests that its clinical efficacy and adverse event rates including erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence are similar to current definitive therapies such as radical prostatectomy and external-beam radiotherapy...

Interventional oncology is rapidly expanding its suite of oncologic therapies, providing unique proven therapeutic benefits. To grow a practice alongside other oncology specialties, knowledge of cancer fundamentals is required. Areas of interest include methods to assess disease stage, treatment toxicity, and response. Additionally, techniques to leverage opportunities and resources available at one's institution toward practice development and efficiency will be reviewed.

Kyungmouk Steve Lee, Joseph P Erinjeri
Image-guided ablation is safe and effective for the treatment of both primary and metastatic tumors in the lung. This article reviews the three most commonly used ablative options: radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, and cryoablation. We describe the advantages of each ablation modality in the lung and how to choose the most appropriate ablation device based on patient and tumor characteristics. The optimal technique for lung ablation is discussed and technical tips for improving clinical outcome are described...

REVIEW
Colin J McCarthy, Debra A Gervais
Renal cell carcinoma is a relatively common tumor, with an estimated 63,000 new cases being diagnosed in the United States in 2016. Surgery, be it with partial or total nephrectomy, is considered the mainstay of treatment for many patients. However, those patients with small renal masses, typically less than 3 to 4 cm in size who are deemed unsuitable for surgery, may be suitable for percutaneous thermal ablation. We review the various treatment modalities, including radiofrequency ablation, microwave ablation, and cryoablation; discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each method; and review the latest data concerning the performance of the various ablative modalities compared with each other, and compared with surgery...

Metastatic liver disease is a major cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality. Surgical resection is considered the only curative treatment, yet only a minority is eligible. Patients who present with unresectable disease are treated with systemic agents and/or locoregional therapies. The latter include thermal ablation and catheter-based transarterial interventions. Thermal ablation is reserved for those with limited tumor burden. It is used to downstage the disease to enable curative surgical resection, as an adjunct to surgery, or in select patients it is potentially curative...
